Best gourmet butchers in Singapore
Sasha’s Fine Foods
This online grocer is known for its premium variety of meat, fish, fine food products and pantry staples. Founder Sasha Conlan has met with nearly every supplier and visited the farms personally. This ensures that every type of meat she brings in aligns with her ethos of working only with suppliers who adopt high standards of animal welfare, traceability and sustainability.
The meat on the site is all GMO-, hormone- and antibiotic-free. Every producer is devoted to caring for the animals in a humane and sustainable way. That means you can shop free-range chicken that’s been exposed to plenty of sunshine, daylight and fresh air, duck that’s hand-fed a natural diet, grass-fed beef farmed on organic pastures, and more. When animals have been farmed with such care, you can be sure that the meat will taste divine!
One popular pick is Green Meadows Beef from New Zealand. Known for its grass-fed Angus beef products, the farm is located beneath Mount Taranaki and alongside the Tasman Sea. The cattle are allowed to roam and graze freely; they’re fed grass as well as grass supplements (silage and hay) grown solely on the farm. This results in premium beef that has an outstanding flavour, colour and texture. Green Meadows Beef also owns its own manufacturing plant, where it slices, dices and minces its own beef for full traceability and quality control.
If you love duck, Irish farm Silver Hill produces the “wagyu of ducks”! Hand-fed daily, the free roaming ducks are full of amazing flavour.
Next-day delivery is free with a minimum spend of $100; otherwise it’s $10.
This online market was started by Australian businesswoman and mum Emma Pike as a personal quest to provide exceptional and reasonably priced meat, seafood and fine food products to families living in Singapore. Top products on the website include fresh Australian beef, lamb, pork, salmon and chicken. They’re all sustainably sourced from ethical and traceable farms that place a strong emphasis on animal welfare. Free of hormones and antibiotics, the high-quality meats are flown in directly from leading suppliers in Australia and Europe.
For everyday family dinners, try the grass-fed, free-range beef mince! There’s also delicious thyme and garlic pork sausages, corn-fed chicken and sustainably farmed salmon from New Zealand.
This butcher delivers islandwide from Monday to Saturday, with free delivery on orders over $150. Order before 12pm on Monday to Friday for next-day delivery.
On top of its wide range of chilled and cured meats, cheeses and gourmet products, this family-owned specialty store and butchers in Singapore also offers top-notch wagyu from New Zealand company First Light, which has been described as the “best beef in the world” by Forbes.
Highly prized wagyu beef is traditionally grain-fed. For example, in Japan, the cattle are kept in pens and remain rather immobile for their lives, while in other countries they’re typically kept in feedlots with limited space to move. First Light has upended this notion by practising just the opposite, yet collecting gold medals for two consecutive years (2018 and 2019) at the World Steak Challenge in London, as well as the gold medal in the Steak of Origin competition in New Zealand.
From the time they’re weaned from their mothers until their last day, First Light wagyu cattle feed only on grass from the lush pastures that they’re free to roam in. The reason is simple: co-founder Jason Ross strongly believes that cows don’t belong in cages, and that “happy animals will produce the best beef”. The result is GMO-, growth hormone- and antibiotic-free meat with abundant marbling in the form of fine specks.
Order before 12 noon to receive your goods the next day, subject to available delivery slots, and get free delivery with a minimum purchase of $100 in one receipt.
Acting as a global farmer’s market, Open Taste is an easy-to-use online platform that lets you shop everything from guava from Thailand to pasta from Italy, alongside organic grass-fed Australian beef and wines from around the world. The best part? Prices are wholesale, which means you save when you buy more.
A highlight on the site is the range of premium bacon from Fiora, a family business originating in Italy. Based in Australia, the company uses only the finest quality ingredients and traditional curing technique to cure its meats. The bacon is naturally smoked using Australian wood chips, resulting in fantastic flavour. It’s the perfect addition to your morning fry-up or pasta dinner!
Premium members (from $49.99 per year) get unlimited free delivery on all orders over $49, plus a 2 percent reward on all purchases. For non-premium members, delivery is free on orders with bulk items over $150 and orders without bulk items over $49.
This online butcher in Singapore has been supplying top-quality meats to hotels and restaurants for more than 20 years. What sets the company apart is the range, quality and consistency of meats that they import. Apart from premium cuts of beef, Meat Co also offers a fab selection of fresh and frozen chicken, lamb and pork.
Shop Wanderer beef, a free-range, barley-fed beef raised in Southern Australia. The cattle roam freely on the fields, resulting in a superior flavour that’s richer than most grass-fed beef. This unique and modern farming method provides a relaxed environment with the highest animal welfare in mind, and achieves year-round quality and consistency in marbling and tenderness. There are no added hormones or antibiotics in Wanderer beef, and the cattle can move beyond feedlots. Try it now in a 45-day dry-aged version!
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.
