[From Wikipedia]

Lamb is often sorted into three kinds of meat: forequarter, loin, and hindquarter. The forequarter includes the neck, shoulder, front legs, and the ribs up to the shoulder blade. The hindquarter includes the rear legs and hip. The loin includes the ribs between the two.

Lamb chops are cut from the rib, loin, and shoulder areas. The rib chops include a rib bone; the loin chops include only a chine bone. Shoulder chops are usually considered inferior to loin chops; both kinds of chop are usually grilled.

Leg of lamb is a whole leg; saddle of lamb is the two loins with the hip. Leg and saddle are usually roasted, though the leg is sometimes boiled. Roasted leg and saddle may be served anywhere from rare to well-done.

Forequarter lamb meat includes considerable connective tissue and is best when cooked slowly using either a moist method such as braising or stewing or by slow roasting or American barbecuing. It is, in some countries, often sold pre-chopped or diced.

Tofu - I second your sentiments about their lamb. It was excellent the last time I tried it, I also had their lamb kofta, which was delightful. The owner and his wife are very, very nice... try the m'saka - roasted eggplant & chickpeas in a tomato & onion sauce with mint... delicious.

You're thinking to yourself... but this is your average shawarma place... i've been there, i've seen it etc. But ah.... what you may not know is, Les Grillades turns into a nice dinner place in the evening. We're talking waiters, menu's, the whole deal.

The bigger deal is the food. Its amazing. I got the lamb chops and they were amazing! Some of the best I've had in Ottawa. My friend had the chicken and she said it was amazing. Even the rice that comes with the meal is delicious. Even the hummus served with the bread is delicious. I've had a lot of hummus in my time... but there was something about this hummus. It was so delicious I asked the server to pack the rest for home.

I know I said it before but it warrants repeating... amazing lamb chops.

Pasanda Lamb - Morsels of lamb marinated in yogurt and cooked in special curry sauce.

AMAZING
this was everybody's favourite dish of the whole meal!
I know this is a horrible picture, and not that appealing (I'm not a food photographer clearly), but there is a little dollop of the lamb on the left.
(Beef on the right, shrimp at 12 o'clock, chicken tandoor in the middle and rice at 10 o'clock)

"The Man" likes the lamb served at Four Cuisines Bistro on Preston Street.

It is a "New Zealand Rack of Lamb with roasted garlic in a classic French Style with cognac and rosemary sauce. Served with fine vegetables and hand cut matchstick potatoes". All this for $ 17.95

Hard to beat!

The rack of lamb was highly recommended by our friends. Yes. Very good indeed with very nice presentation (should be their signature dish). Try this one whenever you are here for dinner.

Lamb shank!!! The lamb shank in this place is amazing! It comes in this gravy that's to die for with that amazing rice with dill and lima beans. That's all I eat at this place. Try it... you won't be dissapointed. Its the only reason to go to Persian cuisine express. Other dishes are delicious but the portion of meat seem small.

This is what my friend ordered which was one of the specials that evening. He got it medium well and he said it was delicious. Some mashed potatoes and steamed veg to round it out. I thought the presentation was pretty.

I had the Lamb Vindaloo Thalee for lunch and at 9$ it was a great deal. A nice portion of Vindaloo, salad, vegetables, rice and Naan. The spicing was nice and hot and the lamb was very tender and tasty.

My friend recommended the lamb shank to me on my first visit to the restaurant and I have been hooked ever since. I have stolen tidbits off other people's plates, so I've "tried" several other items on the menu, but this is still by far my favourite dish. The lamb was cooked just right, so tender, so flavourful. It was delicious. A wonderful meal like this only cost $12.00!!

The lamb burger (which is available on their lunch menu for $9.95) is a favourite of mine. It's topped with goat cheese, caramelized (red) onions and peppers. It comes with their house salad and yam chips or potato salad..choose the yam chips.
