Organic Locally Sourced Fresh Meat & Poultry, Friendly Service Highlight Elk Grove's Adam's International Market
December 18, 2016 |
If you are looking for a place with great customer service, and fresh, organic meats and poultry in Elk Grove, this is the place for you.
Open for about a year now at the Bond Plaza on the corner of Elk Grove-Florin and Bond roads, the grocery store specializes in Middle Eastern food specialties. For my purposes, the store has a great fresh meat counter.
Adam's sells Halal meats and poultry sourced from Islamic Meat & Poultry in Stockton, Calif. Last summer we purchased a whole leg of lamb there, slow roasted/smoked it on our grill and it came out fantastic.
More recently we have purchased whole Halal chicken's there and they were fantastic. The telling sign that their birds were going to be great, was that they were much smaller than the gigantic whole chickens we all are accustomed to seeing at the local grocery store.
Fed a vegetarian diet and not jacked-up by hormones, these birds taste the way chicken's were meant to taste. Recently we roasted one in the oven and when it came out, it was devoured. You can taste the difference.
Along with the great selection of lamb and poultry, they also carry goat and veal. Soon we will be purchasing goat for Calderetra, which is a Filipino-style stew and some veal, which is almost impossible to find nowadays for some Italian specialties.
While we have not tried their takeout food, we have been told not only is it make fresh to order, it tastes great and is a very good deal. Can't get much better than that.
Finally, we would be remiss if we did not mention that the staff at this business is really friendly and helpful. Recently we were served by Raed who was helpful and friendly.
Other businesses would be well-served to take a lesson in customer service from the crew at Adam's.
