The Hungry Nomad: Big Lou's Butcher Shop (Vancouver, Canada)

May 31, 2011

Big Lou's Butcher Shop (Vancouver, Canada)

I was introduced to this amazing butcher/sandwich shop not too long ago.  And folks all I can say is that it is incredible. From the friendly service, to the amazing selection of fresh meats and sandwiches Big Lou's Butcher Shop is a true hidden gem. Allan Bosomworth and Karl Gregg, chef/owners of the wonderful Two Chefs and a Table on Alexander Street opened this 800-square-foot, Brooklyn-modeled butcher shop and delicatessen on the corner of Powell and Gore. The 1930s-style joint is outfitted with a dozen bar stools for on-site sandwich scarfing and a long glass case to scope the locally sourced cuts, from Pemberton beef and Sloping Hills pork to Fraser Valley poultry and local game meats (all butchered on site). Take home their line of wet and dry rubs, sauces, and bagged meals like coq au vin and Moroccan lamb shanks.

First time around we ordered the house made pastrami which is made over the course of 6 days. It goes best with the fresh baguettes they sell in store. Next time around I purchased some of their amazing sausages including the spicy merguez and the sun-dried tomato infused sausage. I will definitely be going back to try their fresh cut meats.
