The Find: Fresh, local goat meat
“Halal” is technically food allowed by Islamic law, but it also refers to the prescribed Muslim method of slaughter: one short, deep, artery-cutting incision to the neck. All goat, chicken, turkey, and beef at Beaverton Halal is locally raised and slaughtered accordingly. The store also offers the region’s largest selection of Middle Eastern foodstuffs, with excellent feta, yogurt, dried herbs, nuts, candy, and ingredients like pomegranate molasses, a wonderfully flavored staple of Persian cooking and an inexpensive substitute for balsamic vinegar.
