Derek chose a beautiful autumn afternoon to launch his newly renovated shop selling imported meats and a few new accompanying products. He’s retained the same brand name Foodies Gourmet.
The space is a little smaller but he’s somehow managed to pack more into the fridges.
He had a wonderful spread of canapés which included German sausages, some caviar on a small vol-Au-vent, roast suckling pig, steamed chicken, smoked salmon on crackers and figs with various deli hams. Fresh juices quenched the thirst and made all the canapés taste better. Thanks for the delicious snacks Derek!
Derek is moving towards a delicatessen style of shop, he’s got the dried goods and some nice meats in cans and jars. The shop has a false wall behind it where their back kitchen sits. It’s too bad that we can’t see the sink and cutting table anymore, I rather enjoyed watching the sushi master (Derek) prep the salmon and wash his knife and boards… just gives you confidence in the cleanliness. Oh well.
I forgot to take photos of the canapés, but here are the meats and accompaniments he sells in his shop.
On the right as you enter are the dried goods.
On the left, he’s filled it wall to wall with freezers.
Then he’s got a small chest type freezer for the carbs.
And of course the chilled meats section where you can buy top grade Japanese beef, New Zealand lamb and Norwegian salmon.
Derek is super helpful and will marinade your meat for you with advanced notice, so that all you have to do is bung it in the oven or pan fry it to perfection.
He’s taking orders for his specialty, baby turkey for thanksgiving or Christmas. It takes 10 days advanced notice for best results. He’ll defrost it thoroughly and marinade it with his special seasoning and heat seal it all in a bag for you to take home.
I bought one last year, it fed 5 people and was perfect in the oven with Derek’s instructions. Tasty, tender and thoroughly recommended.
Yes, you can tell I’m a satisfied client.
His contact number remains the same. 🙂
Find him on Stone Nullah Lane, more or less opposite the Blue House and Samsen. It’s across the street from those two, between a school uniform shop and a hk style coffee shop.
Oh yes, if you live in Kowloon or HK island, Derek will deliver to your door FOC as long as your bill exceeds $600 HKD. 👍
