When a mate you know and trust recommends a meat shop, I sit up and take notice. For years I have shopped at the other butcher, back up the road on Xuan Dieu. Why the hell I've never been to this butcher/deli is quite beyond me! But thanks to my mate - I've discovered a little hidden gem.

Cochon D'Or here stocks a range of imported and local meats and sausages: beef, lamb, chicken, duck etc etc etc. The meat is stored in a standard display chiller and then, apparently, sent to the freezer after a few days if it doesn't all sell. Good hygiene and stock maintenance practice. This is the same imported meat you can get elsewhere: ribeye, beef fillet, tenderloin, lamb rack, etc. Best of all - it's MUCH cheaper than the competition. I was literally stunned, even after being informed of this fact.

Last week I bought about 400g of ribeye - only VND180k. Yesterday i bought a lamb rack - five pins - only VND175k. Astoundingly good prices for the same product and, I can confirm, excellent quality.

The service is also really good. Smiling, warm, friendly staff who communicate well and will cut your order to size - whatever you need. The owner, Dung (use the mobile number in the listing) is very helpful and professional. She does deliveries throughout Hanoi and, upon discovering I live far away, added me to her delivery list for future contact. She will contact me when coming out my way to see if there is anything I want - no obligation, just a great service. And I can order from them any time and they will deliver.

Suffice to say I'm impressed. As a rampant meatosaurous, it's great to have this option to satisfy my cravings. As I try other selections from their offerings I expect this rating to bump up to five stars.

Great business, great service, great products.

September 2013 Update
Had the need to have some steak delivered when the shop was out of stock the afternoon I visited. No problems, even as far as my place. Delivered on time, encased in a bag of ice to keep it fresh on a warm day. Superb service. Rating lifted to five stars.

After discovering this place by chance some months ago, I don't buy my favourite Australian ribeye steaks anywhere else.

Their meat selection (local and imported) is very good, the service is always excellent, they attend the customers with a smile which, as you know, is not usual in Hanoi even for a good looking guy like me :) and as a bonus, they can speak English. If they don't have something on stock right now, they offer to deliver for you for free later.

I went to Cochon d'or on the weight of the two earlier reviews and have little to add beyond my stars. It exceeded my high expectations. Good meat, good prices, friendly staff. Check it out!

Lamb Racks are very good, Steaks are best quality, even the duck I bought that was frozen, was excellent! and YES!!! much cheaper than up the road, we all know where we are talking about!

Update (November 2013):

went back today after 3 months, well nothing changed, the meat selection is really great, prices are ok, if they don't have they will soon for you! I have used a few people in between visits, it is the best,these girls make it a pleasure shopping there...........
