The store’s range of New Zealand lamb is our current obsession. It hails from the South Island’s oldest sheep station; at this Marlborough farm, lots of sunshine, coastal landscapes and careful farming practices combine to give the lamb unique flavour characteristics. Each lamb is hand-selected and pasture-raised without genetically modified feed or hormones. The result? Exquisite taste and consistency. So, make your weekend lunch or dinner extra special with tender lamb leg on the bone (available fresh or frozen, from $48.50) – perfect for roasting!
Shop a wide range of steaks from this online butchery, which has been supplying top quality meats to hotels and restaurants for more than 20 years. What sets the company apart is the 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.
New on the site is Wanderer beef, a free-range, barley-fed beef raised in Southern Australia. This cattle is allowed to roam freely on the fields, and are barley-fed, 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. Wanderer Beef has no added hormones or antibiotics, and the cattle are never confined to feedlots.

So, what’s on the must-try list? Firstly, the grass-fed wagyu beef from Open Taste’s private label of quality steak cuts. For $39.99, shoppers can get a two-pack of rib-eyes (400g total) with a marbling score of 3/4. It’s flown fresh from Australia, chilled and ready to cook.

Specialty gourmet butchery and grocer Ryan’s Grocery is a great go-to for those seeking healthier alternatives to the average supermarket selections. You’ll find a wonderful array of organic and free-range meats, and gluten-free and preservative-free foods. Items are sourced from small producers and farmers who are committed to ethical production. Order online at ryansgrocery.com, or visit one of the two store locations. The original shop is in Bukit Timah at 29 Binjai Park; the larger, recently opened branch is at Great World City (#B1-144/145, 1 Kim Seng Promenade) – complete with a restaurant, Ryan’s Kitchen!
Borrowdale pork is one of the bestsellers here, and for good reason. All the hogs have plenty of room to roam around as they’re raised. This low-stress environment not only gives the animals a better quality of life but also allows them to live longer – that means more time for natural flavours to develop, resulting in juicier, more delicious meat. Another fan favourite is the 100-day grain-fed Five Founders dry-aged beef, aged in Ryan’s Grocery’s own dry-age chiller at Great World City. Customers can choose their cut and desired ageing duration!
With a “no nasties” ethos, it’s all about unadulterated, sustainable food here.

All the red meat is grass-fed, the poultry is free-range, and the seafood is sustainably harvested with low impact on the environment. Founder and owner Rebecca Forwood deals directly with all the farmers. This ensures the brand meets her non-negotiable criteria of ethically grown products by way of animal welfare, and no chemicals or genetic modification throughout the supply chain.
You’ll want to add the shop’s 100 percent grass-fed Roaring Forties Lamb to your must-buy list.

Wooloomooloo represents the laid-back, food-loving ethos of Australia. This popular steakhouse at Swissôtel the Stamford (2 Stamford Road) offers premium steak selections and Aussie-inspired picks. The whole experience starts as you walk by the restaurant’s impressive chiller, where beef cuts are stored and on display; afterwards, you’ll get to see the culinary crew in action from the open-theatre kitchen. It definitely adds some extra drama to the meal!
Though the menu features prime cuts from Idaho to Ireland, what Wooloomooloo really prides itself on is top-quality Aussie beef. We recommend starting with the Australian wagyu beef tenderloin carpaccio ($26), thinly sliced and finished with rocket, Parmesan and seasoning. It’s the perfect way to sample the butter-like consistency and flavour of wagyu in its purest form. For the main event, opt for medium-rare with the Australian rib-eye ($79/340g or $105/450g); the 150-day grain-fed and four-weeks wet-aged cut comes from Stanbroke, Queensland. Also a hit is the bestselling beef wellington ($83/220g) with mushroom duxelles, Parma ham and foie gras.
