TME – The Meat Experts is in Bukit Damansara, lodged in a corner.
You have a nice little parking space with lots of shady trees right beside it.
This outlet caters to those who are buying cuts of meat and selected cheese from around the world. Restaurants and eateries also get their supply from TME. And why do they call themselves the Experts? Because through years of experience, they know exactly what gourmet meat lovers appreciate and want. In other words, they know which meat makes the cut!
This is the general layout of the outlet. It struck me as a clean, no fuss place.
Psst… The TME Privilege Card gets you all these …
The meat is well laid out and this gives the chance to take a good look at what you are buying. There is meat from around the world and TME stocks one of the most expensive meats in the world! There is Streaky Bacon, Mortadella Pistachio, Proscuitto di Parma, and various types of salami.
Proscuitto di Parma (R) – This is cured ham made from the hind legs of pigs. By law, only meat that is cured in the hills around the city of Parma can bear the name Parma. This meat is best savoured thinly sliced, eaten with melon.
Prosciutto Stagionato (L) – This is a large pork leg. And fully cured, weighs a whopping 10 kg!
Jamon Serrano – This is ham made from a breed of white pigs.
Jamon Iberico Bellota – TME actually stocks this! It is world renowned for being rare and super expensive. It is considered as the finest of all hams. You get this meat from free range Iberian pigs which feed mainly on acorns. (I didn’t get to take a picture of this )
Bresaola I.G.P – This can also be called beef prosciutto. It is a raw and air-cured beef product made from lean beef.
Salame Nostrano – Salami that comes seasoned with salt and cracked pepper.
TME also stocks of cheese from all over the world!
Queso Tetilla (front) This is also known as Nipple Cheese. (if you have to ask why, you are too young to be reading this ) It is made from goat cheese, rennet and cheese culture, ripened for a minimum of seven days. The unique shape helps in the maturing process.
Murcia al Vino (R) – The rind gets its colour from the red wine. This is a semi- soft goat cheese.
Manchego Cheese (L) – Is a delicious Spanish hard cheese made from sheep’s milk.
TME also boasts of Award winning sausages ( Johansville, Edwards) which is a definite for sausage lovers! I spotted some pork sausages which come in different flavours. Leek pork sausages, honey flavoured, jalapeno cheddar, chilli cheese, chilli sizzler, country herbs and lots more.
You can also pick up some bottled items like olive oil, pickled gherkins, onions and jalapeno.
And before you leave, grab a gelato!
