  • COURTESTY OF HILLCREST ARTISAN MEATS FACEBOOK

December 1, 2011 saw the grand opening of Hillcrest Artisan Meats, a meat market and sandwich palace that has become one of the most beloved places for Little Rock carnivores to get their meat on. Master butcher Brandon Brown and crew have spent the last year introducing Central Arkansas to delightful creations like duck prosciutto, pork lung pastrami, and a braised beef cheek sandwich that has grown so popular that it's been nicknamed the "Get Here Early." On Saturday, H.A.M. will celebrate their one year anniversary by offering up some free nibbles, sweets, drinks, and a raffle to win other goodies from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

H.A.M. is an important part of our culinary landscape, not just because of the quality food they sell and prepare, but because the staff is so knowledgeable about what their business is about — and they're always happy to share that knowledge with folks who have questions. Many's the time I've stopped in, seen something in the case that I've never tried and had somebody slice me off a piece to try and tell me all about it. H.A.M. is also one of the only places in town where you can buy a Thanksgiving turkey and wind up in a conversation with both the man who smoked it and the man who raised it all at the same time. From locally produced meats, cheeses, and vegetables to fine imported mortadella, salami, or jamon iberico, the small Hillcrest butcher is a wonderland of interesting things to eat.

Hillcrest Artisan Meats is located at 2807 Kavanaugh Boulevard, Suite B. My fellow Eat Arkansas contributor Dan Walker and myself are both planning on checking out the festivities, so we hope to see you all there.
