Best gourmet butchers in Singapore
What started out as a butchery three years ago has since expanded to include a fully-fledged restaurant and bar, and a coffee place. On the butchery front, you’ll find a fab range of premium beef including Kagoshima ribeye A3 and New Zealand Canterbury grass-fed ribeye. There’s also USDA Prime ribeye, dry-aged with or without sake on site. Produced in-house, the dry-aged cuts are infused with anything from truffle to whisky. A signature is the 60-day sake dry-aged USDA Prime ribeye; the elaborate process involves soaking a cheesecloth with sake, wrapping the block of meat, and placing it in the dry-ager for the ageing process to take place under controlled temperature and humidity. To ensure that the meat is packed with sweet, umami sake flavours, the team then brushes the meat with sake every week until the sixtieth day.
Don’t miss out on other meaty options, too. From melt-in-the-mouth Iberico pork cuts to juicy sausages in flavours like spicy Italian, you’ll find all you need for a fun barbecue or fuss-free one-pot wonder.
Delivery details: Enjoy free island-wide delivery when you spend $80 and above. Same-day delivery is only available for selected items when you place your order before 12pm.
Sasha’s Fine Foods
For an impeccable range of top-quality meats, seafood and fine food products, check out this online grocer. Founder Sasha Conlan was one of the first online grocers in Singapore back in 2011. She personally visits all of her suppliers, making sure everything she brings here is from suppliers who adopt the highest standards of animal welfare, traceability and sustainability.
One highlight is Rhug Estate organic meat products, including premium lamb and beef cuts. A multi award-winning organic farm tucked in the idyllic Welsh mountains, Rhug Welsh meats are sustainably farmed with the highest animal welfare standards. Raised without chemicals, Rhug Welsh lamb has been awarded PGI status, which guarantees top quality and traceability. In fact, Rhug Estate is the only farm in the UK to be granted the Royal Warrant, a true testament to their passion for sustainable farming. Other popular picks include Wicks Manor pork products, which come from a family-run farm in Essex, England with over 50 years of experience raising pigs. Raised on nutritional, hormonefree feed and plenty of clean water, the pigs are free to roam about and mature naturally, so you can expect clean, healthy and delicious pork.
Delivery details: Next-day delivery is free with a minimum spend of $100; otherwise it’s $10. For orders $150 and above, free same-day delivery is offered from Monday to Friday!
This family business was founded by Aussie mum Emma Pike in 2016 as a personal quest to find quality Australian meat and seafood in Hong Kong. Since moving her family to Singapore in 2019, the online store has grown to supply health-conscious families across Hong Kong and Singapore with sustainably farmed, natural, affordable meat and seafood. Emma is as fussy about what’s sold in the store as she is about the food on her family’s plates, so you can trust that all of Farmer’s Market’s farm-fresh produce is 100 percent traceable, ethically and sustainably farmed, and free from hormones, antibiotics and other nasties.
Popular picks include the amazing grass-fed beef, which is sourced from farms on the southern coast of Australia and in New Zealand. Grass-fed beef is leaner, tastier and higher in nutrients than intensively farmed beef, and is also completely free of hormones and antibiotics. The team also recommends the fresh New Zealand salmon, directly imported every week from NZ King Salmon farms that are scattered through the cool, deep waters of Marlborough’s pristine Pelorus and Queen Charlotte Sounds.
Delivery details: Farmer’s Market delivers six days a week with no minimum purchase. Order before 12pm from Monday to Friday for next-day delivery. Enjoy free delivery when you order over $150; otherwise, delivery costs $20.
This online grocer, which also has five outlets island-wide, carefully sources its meat from award-winning family farms in Singapore and Australia. At the butcher counter, available online and at River Valley (#01-20 Valley Point, 491 River Valley Road), the team of friendly butchers will help you choose the perfect cut, whether it’s grass-fed, free-range or antibiotic-free meat you’re after!
For an easy weeknight dinner, check out the ready-to-cook honey-and-garlic chicken steak, or the gluten-free breaded chicken schnitzel, freshly marinated and prepared by the butchers. For top-quality beef, Little Joe from Australia offers freerange and grass-fed ribeye and sirloin. These all-natural beef products have a minimum marble score of four – a feat near impossible to replicate! For wagyu cuts of OP rib, Tomahawk and sirloin, try Darling Downs Wagyu, one of Australia’s most prestigious and awarded beef brands. Darling Downs’ cuts contain the high levels of finely distributed marbling that are highly sought-after by beef lovers worldwide.

A favourite amongst local and expat families, Huber’s Butchery has established itself as a go-to specialty store for all things meat. If you’re a fan of lamb, try Margra lamb. This premium meat is from the pasture-raised Australian White breed of sheep. The result of years of careful breeding and research involving over 20,000 embryo transfers, this special breed has elevated levels of Omega-3 long-chain fatty acids and is exclusively available at the butchery. The meat boasts fine micro-marbling and thick subcutaneous fat, making its taste and texture superior to many of its counterparts on the market. Need more reason to try? Margra lamb ambassador and Australian celebrity chef Mark Best proclaims that it’s the best lamb he’s ever eaten!
Also available at Huber’s Butchery are Brisbane Valley Protein quails from Australia – the largest table quails in the world. Derived from the Coturnix Quail variety, the super-sized quails are the result of careful selection over time by Hunter Valley farmer Charlie Scott, who painstakingly picked bigger quails and effectively developed his own breed after 30 years. Instead of the usual 180 to 200 grams, these birds weigh 300 to 400 grams each, making them easier to cook and more enjoyable to eat. Raised in large, naturally ventilated barns in Queensland, the birds are also hormone and antibiotic-free. Purchase them at Huber’s Butchery or try them at Morsels, winner of World Gourmet Summit Restaurant of the Year in 2017.
This online platform gives consumers in Singapore the opportunity to shop perishable products from around the globe at wholesale prices. Prices here are often 30 to 50 percent lower than in supermarkets and specialty online grocers; plus, they’ll deliver your items within 36 hours of ordering.

Free of hormones and antibiotics, the free-range beef is a delicious and versatile addition to a wide range of dishes, including tomato-based pastas, easy stir-fries, and meatballs. There’s also a neat selection of premium grass-fed wagyu for days when you want to treat yourself (or your date!) with an indulgent home-cooked meal. Top tip: do your shopping by category – the meats are split into different groups like fresh poultry, frozen meat and sausages, which makes navigation a breeze.

Singapore-based meat specialist Meat Co is a familiar name on the scene; the online butcher has been supplying top-quality meats to hotels and restaurants for more than 20 years! The team sources its meat products from small-scale farms that practise ethical farming. Highlights include free-range, barley-fed and hormone-free Wanderer beef from Australia, Spanish Iberico pork collar, and organic, free-range chicken from New Zealand farm Bostock Brothers.
Another highlight is the range of nitrite-free sausages, freshly handmade in small batches using the same ethically sourced meat you see on the site. A best-seller is the sweet and spicy Italian pork sausages, mildly spicy on the palate and perfumed with fragrant herbs and fennel. Don’t miss out on the latest additions to the sausage menu, including innovative flavour combinations like jalapeno and cheese, and Sichuan pepper – we can’t wait to try them!
Delivery details: Enjoy free next-day delivery when you spend above $80 and when you order before 2pm.
As a full-service organic butcher and allergen-friendly specialty store, Ryan’s Grocery stocks a wide range of imported and in-house items, as well as a variety of organic, gluten-, preservative-, and allergen-free products from Australia, Singapore, Europe and the US. There are two locations in Singapore: Binjai Park, and a 4,000-square-foot flagship store in Great World. Meat fans will love the extensive range of products available at both, whether it’s the wholesome selection of organic and free-range meats, or premium offerings like WX Wagyu. If you’re looking for sustainable meats, try the carbon-neutral beef, lamb and pork: 100-day grass-fed Five Founders Natural Beef; juicy Roaring Forties Saltgrass Lamb raised along the Bass Strait; and Borrowdale Free Range Pork, winner of Australia’s Best Pork National Award 2018.
For butcher services, the Great World outlet of Ryan’s Grocery also offers quality dry-aged meats prepared in the store’s dry-ageing chamber; customers who wish to have their meats dry-aged for them can also do so for a nominal fee.
Alongside its range of seafood, The Fishwives has a butchery section that offers an excellent range of Australian grass-fed beef, New Zealand lamb and certified free-range pork from Gooralie and Borrowdale in Australia. For the latter, the pigs have full access to the outdoors, as well as fresh water and feed. This results in all-natural pork products that are flavourful, succulent and ethically produced.
If you love lamb, check out Te Mana Lamb from New Zealand, sold exclusively at The Fishwives. The superior sheep specifically feed on the pastures of the New Zealand high country, and the meat is known to be higher in omega-3 and marbling than regular lamb.
Cape Grim beef, raised on nothing but rich pastures, is another meaty pick. For a decadent date night at home, Altair wagyu combines the marbling and sumptuous texture of traditional wagyu with the clean minerality of pasture-raised cattle. This unique breeding creates a luxurious melt-in-your-mouth flavour.
