All our meat hails from award-winning producers in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan and USA. You can ask us anytime where your meat is coming from.
YES. By law we cannot receive or sell non-halal meat in our store in Mushrif Mall. If you have any doubt you can ask us to see or send a photo of the halal slaughter sticker of the item being purchased, which will show the official Halal Slaughtering Body used to certify the meat as halal, the slaughtering, production and expiry date.
All our meat comes from award-winning producers and is wet-aged in vacuum seal packs from source. Meat benefits from some aging after rigor mortis due to slaughtering.
No, we only specialize in beef and lamb!
We are working on a marination facility, but at the moment, no! There are very strict rules in Abu Dhabi emirate on marination. In the meat market, we are only allowed to display and sell chilled beef and lamb.

Click here for La Carne's suggested best practice for meat handling, storage and cooking.
We do not have the ability to sell the remaining part of tenderloins therefore we sell them as whole slabs. You can have them trimmed and vacuum sealed though and they freeze beautifully.
We ensure that our meat is safe for human consumption by following strict cold chain handling for all our meat according to Local and International Food Control and Safety Standards and best practices. No bare human hand ever touch your meat from the first cutting and vacuum preparation from originating country to packing and delivery to your doorsteps.
The liquid in wet aged vacuum sealed meat items is NOT blood. It is called weep, also known myoglobin, which is a protein that ressembles blood but is naturally found in muscle tissue binding iron and oxygen. Weep is naturally found in vacuum sealed meat items during the wetaging process. Simply drain and pat dry when opening a vacuum sealed meat product, and allow 5 minutes to air out.
We treat all feedback with utmost seriousness and will act accordingly when needed. Simply email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call/whatsapp message 0585006328 if urgent.
We do pre-orders regularly for customers. Just whatsapp us and we can assist you if it is available for pre-order. Kindly note that most of our pre-orders are sold by full slabs.
Sorry, orders are non-refundable. However you may still email us your cancellation request at email@example.com and our management team will get back to you as soon as possible. See our full terms and conditions here on cancellations.
