The Master Butcher Experience

There are butchers and then there are ‘German Butchers’. Tucked away in an unassuming building on the corner of South Street and Carrington is a meat-lovers dream. The signage reads in bold letters MASTER-BUTCHER and is an indication of what lays within. As you slide the manual double door open, the aroma of smoked meat immediately arouses the senses. You know Germans do things with meticulous care and skill, right? Well this little enterprise is no exception and upholds the traditions of old. The produce is of the highest quality, like Porsches, Mercedes, and Volkswagens but better because you can have this fine time-honoured German fare without the expense but feel as fortunate. The service is friendly, courteous and matter-of-fact. If you were German I’m sure it would feel like home. A number of condiments and sweets can be found to enhance the experience. Do yourself a ‘flavour’ and go to Hela Smallgoods – you won’t be disappointed.

    I lived in Hilton for 3 years and never went into this butcher as the faded old graphics left me thinking it had closed down.

    Hi Sharon, it actually took us a few months until we went to check it out, as the sign really doesn’t look inviting. But once you’re inside the shop it’s a totally different story. Izzy

    Truely, one of the best German meat experiences in Australia. Went again today and love it. Try the smoked “speck”. If you like hot dogs, do yourself a favour: go and buy some real German Frankfurts from Hela.

    After having lived in Germany for 12 years, Hela is one of the finest Metzgers in the world and the families produce is always superb and fresh. A great visit if you have not been there.

    As a German I can tell you, stepping into the shop feels like going home! Having just gotten back from a visit in Germany ( Black Forest) I can tell you their Black Forest Ham is better than the one we had in the actual Black Forest. But the star of the show must be the cooked ham! Trust me you never tasted anything like this before!
