Swiss Butchery

When it comes to the level of customisation for your meats, no one does it better than Swiss Butchery; they even offer marination services with your personalised recipe if the order is large enough. With two retail outlets around Singapore, the speciality butcher pioneer brings in everything from gourmet sausages (over 80 varieties) and house-smoked bacon to premium dry-aged beef from the world over – prepped to your specified portion and cut. The meats here come from places like Tasmania’s King Island and Produce of Heaven. At the Tanglin store, you’ll find their restaurant Feedlot delivering top-notch steaks and wines at amazing value.

Swiss Butchery is located at 30 Greenwood Ave, Singapore 289230 & #01-02, 56 Tanglin Rd, Singapore 247964. Open daily 9.30am – 8pm and 9am – 8pm respectively.

Huber’s Butchery

Just like Swiss Butchery, Huber’s was one of the first entrants to Singapore’s gourmet meat scene, specialising in meats from farms like Stockyard and housemade hams and sausages produced in-store. Service is fantastic, and all the butchers will be able to give you tips on cooking and selecting your meats. Huber’s European-style bistro means that your meats can be cooked fresh, also offering indulgent grill platters that come with marinated rib eye, lamb chops, and an assortment of spicy and cheesy sausages.

Culina

Another option in the Dempsey compound is Culina, which distributes its meats to many smaller butcheries and various NTUC Fairprice stores. Known for its competitive pricing and excellent after-sales service, the focus here is on premium Australian beef, offering a wide variety of steak cuts and cattle breeds including the bone-in tenderloin Ranger’s Valley beef, or the bone-in rump Cape Grim. And how does some Blackmore MBS 9+ wagyu or full blood Robbins Island grass-fed Wagyu sound, used by Waku Ghin’s Chef Tetsuya himself, sound?

Online store: No

Culina is located at #01-13, 8 Dempsey Rd, Singapore 247696, p. +65 6474 7338. Open daily 11am – 11pm.

Sasha’s Fine Foods

For top of the range ethically-sourced meats, look no further than Sasha’s Fine Foods. While you won’t actually get to see the meat you’re buying (they don’t have a brick and mortar store), every item on the website is well-photographed and perfectly described in the information box along with the meat’s provenance – whether it’s the free-range Australian pork, New Zealand salmon, or Tasmanian grass-fed steak you’re looking at. Everything is hormone and antibiotic-free, which makes Sasha’s especially popular with the new wave of conscious eaters. Our only gripe? There’s a minimum order of $100.
