Butcher's Block at Medan Damansara: Meat market review
Damansara Heights’ new cavern for carnivores is a treasure trove of Charolais rib eye steaks, Wagyu briskets, French duck breasts and Dorper lamb loin chops. Choose a cut and bring it back home or have it cooked for you here – the grain-fed tenderloin, for example, costs RM36.80 per 100 grams for takeaway purchases, or RM38.80 for dine-in purposes within the cosy space of this ‘gourmet meat market.’
An a la carte menu is additionally available: Our three best bets to represent this venue are the Tasmanian grass-fed striploin (RM72, with two complimentary sides), the charcoal-grilled free-range peri-peri chicken (RM30 for a quarter, also with two perfectly portioned sides) and Spanish octopus leg (RM75 for the smallest serving). The proteins are capably prepared, furnishing the necessary flavour and tenderness that underscore a commitment to solid produce and honest cooking. The chicken is reputedly raised on corn, passion fruit leaves and organic feed, supplied by a farm in Kuala Kubu Baru. Each of the sides is pretty tasty too – our hands-down favourite is the cauliflower mash with truffle oil, uncomplicated but irresistibly addictive. The grilled capsicum and zucchini with hazelnuts and lemon dressing, roasted beetroot and feta cheese with Italian herb dressing, and asparagus with tomatoes and avocados in lemon mustard dressing all master their roles as well in making this a satisfactory meal. Wine is offered by both the bottle and glass. Service is thoroughly warm and efficient.
Trivia: Butcher’s Block is spearheaded by the man who was formerly one-half of Jarrod & Rawlins.
