Meat your match at Lekker, the UAE’s coolest butchers

South Africans are experts when it comes to a Braai (that’s a BBQ to you and me) and they’ll tell you it’s all about the meat from Lekker.

The South African butchers Lekker know that getting the best meat is key to having the best braai in town. And they only import the best Halal beef and lamb from South Africa and Australia using responsibly sourced channels. 

About Lekker

After spotting a gap in the market for premium quality meats at affordable prices, they’ve been welcomed with open arms – and mouths – by thousands in the UAE. 

And if you’re a meat lover, you HAVE to check out their 6000 sq foot flagship store in Al Qouz. Or their brand-new store opening in Abu Dhabi on Thursday 29th July.

They have all the cuts you can think of and more including Ribeye, Rump, Prime Rib, T-bone. Plus a huge range of marinades and spice blends including Afghani, Curry, Sosatie, Malai, Sweet and Spicy, Lemon and Herb, Moroccan, Mint and Herb and their infamous Portuguese Prego or Moroccan

But while you’re waiting for Braai season to open up once the weather has cooled down, they have plenty of amazing meat cuts and treats you have to try out. 

Their dried meats, Biltong, Droewors and Chilli Bites are perfect snack material. 

And if you don’t know what some of those words mean, here’s a quick intro! 

Biltong is Dutch for meat strips. It uses a process invented by the Dutch in South Africa centuries ago and preserves the meat.

It’s quite literally a strip of carefully cured and dried meat. It’s higher in protein and lower in carbs than jerky, making it the perfect post-gym snack.

Droewors are dried thin sausages – so they’re similar to Biltong. And like Biltong, they’re packed with protein, essential fats, vitamins and iron.

And if you want to pack a bit of a punch with the flavour, try their Chilli Bites which are fuelled with heat and flavour. The DubaiLAD team are addicted!

Plus, you can either head down to their main store or order online with next day delivery. 

Open daily 9:30am to 19:30pm. Warehouse 3, street 23 25C, Al Qouz Dubai, www.lekkershop.ae
