Thats a lamb? What part of the lamb? It looks like a very small neck chop. ( which is one of the cheapest part of the animal and not tasty, used in strews mainly )
Correct me if Im wrong though :D It just doesnt look very nice at all :(
Maybe Im just spoilt though and used to only the best meat? lol

Tsk tsk, saying that without even trying the food :( If the lamb wasn't good I really doubt the restaurant I got it from would get line ups that go up to the next store either :/

My presentation or post-processing was not perfect sadly so that could be a factor, you don't see a purple tint do you?

I think you have misunderstood my meaning.
You see, in a lot of countries, because meat ( lamb a lot ) is so expensive, even a neck chop is classed as being a really good meat.
What I am saying is, where I come from because I have lived on farms all my life, and I have all kinds of meat right there at my finger tips. Which can often mean Im a bit spoilt with the meat I have.
Even people in town eat parts of the animal I dont because its the "cheep" part of the meat. Like the "flaps" which a lot of people roll up and make as a roast. Where as in I have never had to eat that partof the sheep, as its full of fat, not much meat, and what meat it does hae its tough meat. ( which a lot dont think its tough meat because they have not really ever had the meat I eat all the time )
Just like neck chops. We feed those to the dogs. As having them in a stew, or as dog meat is all "we" find them good for.
Just like a lot of indians eat goat meat. Which is again, meat we dont eat as its a cheep meat.
Or germans ( so I have been told ) eat horse meat. Where as in here we would not eat horse meat, horse meat is feed to the dogs ( makes them fart big time btw, so think the efect it would have on a human lol )

I wasnt saying at all that it wasnt good.
Just saying that here a neck chop, would not be served up, because meat is so much cheaper here to buy.

Most of NZ meat is imported all over the world. So its a heck of a lot more expencive in other countries. ( Although I have no idea where the meat in the place you went to gets its meat from )
When I go shopping for the people I am a caregiver for. I cant get over the price of meat. For a roast, it costs just about as much as it would to buy the whole sheep ( or Lamb ) .. And over seas, it costs even more.
I know many people who have been to the UK, ( I know thats not where you are ) and while there, they never ate meat, cause it just costs far too much to buy.. Id be no good in the UK then lol.

Hmm, well I never asked them were it's from or see if the menu said what part of the lamb it was :O_o:

With Vancouver being a port city though, meat (and other goods in general) aren't as expensive as other places although seafood especially is much cheaper here then towards the land-locked regions of Canada

But regardless, us city dwellers have to manage with what we can get since we can't do hard farm work very well :P But thank-you for the info, I should read up on it at some point ^_^
