Premium Choice – Every Type of Meat

PCME01

BBQ season is upon us and burgers are always the easiest choice for me. I am always on the look out for different meat vendors and this time around I found Premium Choice. I picked up some Rib-Eye Steak and some burgers, and the amazing Potato Bun that is very hard to find, they have other types of steaks available but this is always my preference.

I have to pick up fresh cut cheddar cheese for burgers, that honestly makes a world of a difference, I really don’t like using Kraft Cheese since they taste horrible compared to how well the meat tastes. And this meat looked really good, and the smell was killing me, I forgot about the rest of lunch and only wanted to eat the burger right off the grill. I prefer using a gas grill when I’m BBQing, in my case its the Weber, coal grills give amazing taste but it’s hard to control the cooking temperature of the meat.

I got the Potato buns out and they were perfect, at least now I will have a constant supply of good buns, the ones you can find in the Co-ops are ok, not great, they do the job but this is the burger buns that complements a good burger. Threw it on the grill for about 2-4 minutes to get it a bit toasted while I waited for the cheese to melt on top of the Burgers.

What I liked about Premium Choice is that everything was online on their website and delivery was quick. They do same deliveries if the order is done online before 5 pm, or it would go to the next day, but in my case I ordered around 10 am and got it by 1pm, makes for a very simple process. I had the Steaks one night at home when I felt like a steak and a salad, that Rib-Eye really hit the spot, nice and tender.

Burgers & Meat – The Kuwait Selection

Burgers

I always like to grill steaks, burgers, hot dogs, and all other kinds of meats, its something that I love doing and especially since a few specialty places opened up in Kuwait. Grilling is an art form, and I know everyone loves ordering their meat well done but thats so wrong, you don’t get the taste of the steak or burger, and sometimes in Kuwait they burn it so it drives me nuts. So I prefer to cook my own when I can, and if I can’t then I go to either OFK or Meat Co because they are the only ones that get it right every time. But if your like me and want to grill at home, then these are your choices for meat supplier, each one has their own taste and some are better then the other but I can’t just can’t get enough of the grill so I will always keep trying to grill whenever I can.

Specialty Places (Ranked Top To Bottom):

  • PrimeCuts – Best Steaks Available from Every Cut you can think of, my favorite is the Rib Eye Wagyu 200 Gram, and the burgers are really good, they come in any size, you can have the Wagyu or the normal, but I prefer the normal because its juicier.
  • Fuddruckers – They only have burgers and their burgers are very juicy when cooked right, and their bread is out of this world. It’s a matter of prefrence but I prefer PC burger over Fudz.
  • RareCuts – I recently saw them and wanted to try them out, their steaks aren’t bad but aren’t as good as PrimeCuts for some reason, I don’t know why even though I tried different steaks, PC was better. The burger I had from them was too salty, and strangely chewy, and I cooked two burger differently but they just didn’t get the right consistency for my taste.

Super Markets

  • Lulu Hypermarket & Sultan Center – Before the specialty spots opened these were the burger sources for decent burgers and their burgers are still good, as long as you order burger meat with about 20% fat 80% lean so you can get a juicy burger when on the grill. When ever we are in need and nobody can provide these guys always seem to get it right. And my supply for lamb chops is always from Sultan Center, they always have the New Zealand Lamb Chops in stock and they are the perfect choice for the grill.

    A Bite @ Meat Company

    During the one day trip to Dubai to check out TAM Auto Engineering I met up with some friends to get a bite to eat and go to the movies. They didn’t have a place in mind so I directly went to Meat Company, they have been very consistent with their food, specifically the meat, and the service. We were all ridiculously hungry by the time we got to the restaurant, it was a simple order, lots of beef ribs for apetizers then straight to the steaks.

    One of our friends was so hungry we was staring intently at the Kabab that came hanging on a skewer. I perfer the Rib-eye for the best steak, a combination of juicy and tasty, and on their menu I order the Wagyu Rib-Eye which is a satisfying 250 gram steak. It really hit the spot for us, cold cokes to cool off and the steaks to fill up. I’m happy they have kept up their level over the years, and will continue to go their when I’m in Dubai.

    Meat Co

    I always have this craving every once in a while for some really good steak and this time around we had it. As soon as we were done walking around we went to have lunch at Meat Company in Midenat Jumeriah. I had the ribeye steak in mind, and those succulent beef ribs that I couldn’t wait to taste. It was pretty damn humid in Dubai, and I wanted a nice cold coca cola as soon as I sit down.

    I ordered about 7 orders of Beef Ribs for the whole table and some beverages were ordered right away because Meat Co is a bit slow with the food so to get those out of the way while people deliberate about their choice of steak. As soon as we were done with the steak orders those amazing beef ribs came out, I didn’t even bother using my hands, things got very messy very quickly, and I just loved those ribs. 15 minutes later the steaks show up most of them were cooked to medium or medium rare and I was very happy with the Wagyu Ribeye, it was tasty and extremely fulfilling then we were off to the movies.
