    Brisket was around $3/lb. The total order came to $52. They bag it all, weight it, type the price into a very low tech cash register. No discount for cash payment

    - - - Updated - - -



    I probably could have objected and forced them to cut and reweight, but after waiting in line, I wasn't going to squabble over a $10 difference. At least I got the extra meat, vs being in Asia and just paying $10 more for the same amount cause of white tax.

    Food handling game not upped in any sense of the word. Don't go here for steak tartar.

    I will be cooking these over the coming weeks and reporting back. Unless I stop posting on beyond completely. Take that as very negative feedback on the quality of this meat.
    Ha! That's an awesome post!
    I meant that they have probably "upped their game" in that pre-CoVid, they were prolly cutting pork on the toilet tanks in the bathrooms and leaving the chicken on the loading dock in the sun. So they certainly have a long way to go, but "you should've seen it before". It's funny. I'm funny. Much funnier when needs explaining.
    LoL!

    If I don't see it before it's cooked I am rock solid, but the second I see meat rolling around in mouse turds... I'm out!

    Back in the day, I saw pre-fried ginger beef just sitting in a box on the floor near the back door entrance.
    Then when someone placed an order for ginger beef, the chef takes a serving from the big plastic box on the floor and throws it into the wok to finish cooking it up for the take-out container.

    GOOD TIMES... Ok have a good weekend everyone

    Do most people think their food is more carefully prepared than this?

    Anyone buy meat at Basha Foods?
    They appear to have a lot of stuff on sale regularly.

    Whole striploin $8.87/kg.
    Brisket $4.99/lb.

    I see their flyer on my FB feeds.

    Bought some insanely cheap beef ribs from basha a couple years ago. Actually that might be in the BBQ thread cheap because there was no meat or fat on em. musta been some sick old cows. Basically just soup bones.

    EDIT: Yeah, was 2018, and beef ribs were $1.99/lb, and results were not inspiring.

    Quick update for Wah Hing:

    Ordered online, only payment method is "pay in store". Got to the store. Line up. Busy place.

    Got to the store, learned they don't even track online orders (or they were too busy), they just asked me to reorder at the counter. 5LBs of brisket turned into 8Lbs with a smiling "close enough!" from the lady at the counter. 5Lbs of pork belly became 6LBs, and 5LBs of drumettes became 7LBs.

    Close enough!

    The brisket is frozen, you're paying by the frozen weight. Pork belly is bone-in (doesn't that make it side ribs or spare ribs? I'm no butcher). Drumettes were large.

    Cash, packaging, and raw meat are handled by the same pair of gloves. Don't go here if you're squeamish of that. There was another lady trying to break apart a Clarke Griswold size bundle of frozen pork chops by smashing them on the ground (but she had a sheet of cardboard for food safety).

    Photos uploaded for reference: https://imgur.com/a/Nry8Ksw
    I totally forgot to mention they oversell like a mofo In the summer i bought a a bunch for me and my mom and i dont recall how much extra exactly but they definitely upped it on every item. If i was paying regular price then yeah that aint happening but thats for me its too cheap to be complaining. I also but extra to vacuum seal and freeze so not a biggie if i have some extra. Dont be going here or any chinese meat shop for that matter if you're squeamish about food handling.

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    ^^Nice! It's gonna be a full on pork week...

    Costco has pork shoulder roasts for $5.99/kg with $6 off per pack. Works out to like $12 for a 6lb pack. Awesome cut, fatty enough that you can't mess it up no matter how you prepare it.

    Thanks. Got a few. They are previously frozen but still a great deal. Already separated too which is convenient.
