I worked at Central Market about 4 years ago so I know how crazy expensive it is. I usually gave a good portion of my paycheck back. I'll save up for a membership at Costco and get it. Everyone says the meat is so good.

We mainly go for the cheese. Mr Chaka and the little miss are particular about their cheese (the LM is not even 2 but don't you dare give her 'yellow' cheese. She's already a cheese snob...)

Chocolate we buy in Switzerland. Brought back 10kg on the last trip.

Just to say as an ex Houston resident, I have bought leg of lamb at Wholefoods, and it wasn't cheap though good.

When I wanted lamb neck filet I tracked down a Lebanese shop who sold it. They had Mexican butchers and my Spanish wasn't great especially on butchering terminology!

I just got back from the Commisary on base and saw some lamb there. It wasn't cheap, but just thought I'd pass it along!
