Open since last week, Star Halal Meat and African Grocery is a family-owned butcher shop providing authentic West African products and halal meat. The family opened their first location in Takoma Park and decided to pursue a second location in the Hollywood Commercial District along Rhode Island Avenue. Their butcher shop carries a selection of beef, chicken, goat, and lamb that can be cut to the customer’s specification. Additionally, they have a charcoal grill onsite, where they’ll cook any meat purchased for patrons and serve it with rice and a spicy sauce. Beyond halal meet, the store carries dried spices, herbs, seasonings, palm oil, clothes, and other daily items.
Star Halal is located at 4936 Edgewood Road in the shopping plaza with A-1 Pawn and New York Deli.
