[quote=“Hobart”]At Costco, they sell various kinds of Futong brand unsliced luncheon meat. I think it is a Taiwan brand. Surprisingly good actually. I tried most of them and the Futong boneless ham and Futong Australian beef, both sold at Costco at about NT$200 for 1 KG!! Very affordable prices.
You will need your own meat slicer though. I purchased one the last time I was home. I think you can get some seriously nice ones here that are for restaurant use, but they are kind of big.
I saved a lot of money with this meat slicer. The prices for luncheon meat at the delis of G&G (Tianmu), Breeze or Jason’s is too much.
Finally, does anyone know where I can find big Virginia style Hams in Taiwan? Maybe I can call this Futong company. I want to purchase something like that humongous ham hock that you see them carving up at Breeze at the regular price, not their inflated price.[/quote]
Actually, I can get you all the stuff you mentioned for a good price I think. I own an eatery down in Sanxia (Sanshia) though. I have a huge deli slicer and will have most of the Fulong brand meats for sale if requested… and yes Virginia style ham is one of them. Even imported cheeses and meats are and will be available if requested.
I also bake incredible good breads which are for sale at my place. I didn’t make any advertising until now, because I thought all is taking care of by the big guys but as I can read here it’s not.
If anyone is interested PM me for more info or directions. It’s actually easy to get here. Got to go, I’ve got to care for my bread and prepare lunch.
