Head butcher Raymond Turkas has been in the meat business for over 47 years. In that time, Mr. Turkas has expanded his business to sell all types of pork and beef and recently has incorporated more and more exotic cuts for the adventurous palate. His team includes both his son and son-in-law, as well as a few other trusted, passionate members of this meat-loving crew. Friendly, professional service, fine selections, and artistic displays define Strip District Meats, making it one of our favorite go-to spots in the neighborhood.
Whether you’re a meat and potatoes kind of customer, or you’d like to challenge your senses, this shop has what you need. While always covering the basics, SDM also stocks exotic cuts of kangaroo, elk, buffalo, venison, alligator, and even rattlesnake. Their selection rotates based on what’s in stock, so if you’re in the mood for a risk, be sure to call ahead and see what specialties they have up their sleeve on any given day.
In addition to butcher services, SDM provides weekly sausage specials, including some mouth-watering options for the month of December like buffalo wing chicken, blueberry maple chicken, and tomato and basil pork. Be sure to check out their schedule here.
SDM has so many options, you may not know what to do with your special cut. If that’s the case, fear not, as the shop shares their favorite recipes with customers so that you can head home and make the most of your purchase. Some items we have our eye on are barbecue short ribs, fried venison medallions with feta dipping sauce, and garlic lime chicken. You can browse these recipes and many more right here.
