When renowned restaurateur Ahmed Al-Bader first opened the Butcher’s Den, he also envisioned making this concept more accessible to people so that they could enjoy the best cuts of meat within the comforts of their own homes. Also considered as one of our favorite food haunts for delicious steaks, the bazaar team was overcome with joy upon finding out that these premium, mouth-watering cuts of meat are now available for purchase at The Butcher’s Cut counter at The Sultan Center in Al-Shaab.
You’ll find the pristine Butcher’s Cut counter decked out with the freshest cuts of meat, sourced from Australia, Argentina and the US. Behind the refrigerator, the black chalkboard showcases the different cuts of beef that are neatly packaged and labeled, all laid out in an organized and easy-to-read manner. A simple glance at the different meats will suffice, however, as the heavy marbling, specifically apparent in the many different Wagyu cuts, signifies the higher grades of beef. All of the packaging, reminiscent of the restaurant, The Butcher’s Den, will serve as a delicious reminder of an unforgettable dining experience. The restaurant itself, evocative of a butcher shop, already boasts an astounding variety of meats sourced from different parts of the world. Today, you can find these specialty meats only at The Butcher’s Cut counter in Sultan Center in Al-Shaab or at the restaurant located in Al-Bida’a.
Unlike other steakhouses, and in this case, butchers, you will find Australian Wagyu of varying grades (usually starting at Grade 8, 9 and above), Argentinian, Organic, USDA Certified Angus beef, and US beef from choice grade and super prime grades. The Butcher’s Cut also has a special assortment of pre-marinated meats simply waiting for your inner-chef’s direction once you reach your own kitchen. Think burgers, steaks and sausages to start with, and even fully marinated strip-loin and rib eye cuts or chicken skewers or thighs simply waiting to be roasted, grilled or braised—the options are endless.
A new arrival to The Butcher’s Cut and The Butcher’s Den throng of specialty meats is the Australian kiwami, a rare and delicate type of Wagyu that is exceptionally tender and melts in the mouth. Considered as Australia’s finest Wagyu beef, kiwami delivers a combination of silky flavors, it is extremely juicy and tender, boasts a marbling grade of at least 9 and above and is also lauded for its fine presentation and texture. The science behind this beef is amazing; as it is derived from Wagyu pure bred and cross bred cattle of the finest Japanese pedigree. Although it is considered as the most expensive, its marbling grade of 9 and above makes this purchase totally worth it. Both of the Australian Wagyu and kiwami beef available at The Butcher’s Cut come from livestock that are fed the finest grains, organic natural milks and cheeses and given the purest drinking water that comes from Australia’s Great Artesian Basin. They are also raised and cared for in a low stress environment, where they can completely remain relaxed and at ease. All of these processes assist in tenderizing the muscles of the animal, ensuring an incomparable delivery of juicy flavors after they are slaughtered.
