More unusual meat: Camel tenderloins now for sale at Jungle Jim’s

Earlier this month, Jungle Jim’s International Market offered customers the opportunity to purchase alligator fillet.

Next up for the grocer at both its Fairfield and Eastgate locations: camel tenderloins.

The off-beat offering features “the most tender and delectable cut of a camel” for $14.99 per pound.

Scott Severs, Jungle Jim’s Meat Operations Manager, said he is excited about the rare international delicacy, which can be a conversation piece for any dinner party.

“This is a first for both of our Jungle Jim’s meat departments,” Severs said. “Farm-raised camel tenderloin steaks and roasts from Australia is simply an item you don’t come across everyday”
