In KL, the best places to get the meat you need is a wet market. I firmly believe in this.
Whenever I need pork for my roast pork, I go to the Bangsar Wet Market and find my friend the "chuee yoke loh." Heaven knows what his name is. I've asked him a couple of times. But he says "kiu ngor "chuee yoke kor" tuk ke le."
In any case, the pork I get from him for my char siu, roast pork, or what have you is usually divine. Just enough fat and marbling.
With that in mind, I was truly awed when I saw what Fogal's Meat Market in Plaza Damas had to offer. My friend, P, had recommended this place before but it wasn't till we were to help a friend, J, move his antique cabinet that we actually had the chance to dine there.
Not only does Fogal's sell meat but they also serve good, hearty, very Australian inspired food.
The meat they sell is brought in to Malaysia from Australia and raised in Kluang. On their own farm and with their own processing facilities. They feed their livestock whole grain for a few months before they slaughter and process them. This from Dave. One of the chaps I was talking to at Fogal's. Friendly fellow.
Since then, I've been itching to go back to try their meats and sausages ( which are all made in the store.)
For Brunch on Sunday though, J, Allan and I had some really good food. If you're a carnivore, this is the place for you. Even if you're not, there are offerings aplenty in a menu that is surprisingly extensive.
With wines even!
