Butchers in Singapore: 14 stores for quality meat on the island

By: Ashley Rogers

Being able to have a barbeque at any time of year in Singapore is probably up there in the top seven things about being an expat. Just after having a pool and before having most of your pals half a mile away. It’s important, therefore, to be able to nip to a high quality butcher in the neighbourhood for the Sunday afternoon ‘meat run’. Whether you’ve nabbed the condo BBQ pit, are hosting a roast or simply planning your meals for the week ahead, it’s really worth spending a bit more on a trustworthy slab – generally freshly shipped over from overseas.

Not sure where to start? Allow us to step in and take it from here with our guide to butchers in Singapore (it was always heading in this direction).
