Who We Are

Our mission is to service San Diego with the highest quality halal meat at an affordable price with outstanding customer service. We pride ourselves by offering a wide variety of meats ranging from cow/beef, chicken, goat, lamb, and veal. Additionally, we offer a curated selection of international patry products from different regions of the world such as Somalia, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, India and more.


Established in 2007, our humble store started as Ebes Marketplace and Deli previously owned by Ibrahim Ramona. It changed owners over the years, but the mission stayed the same: to provide the highest quality dhabihah, halal meat in San Diego.
