If you’re in the mood for a spread of grilled sausages, steaks and all the trimmings, we’ve done the hunting and gathering for you. Bookmark our guide to the best Western-style butchers in Singapore!
Y’all, we love a good barbecue. Nothing beats Southern-style barbecue with some grits, cornbread, collard greens and pulled pork with a tangy barbecue and hot sauce. And let’s face it, as much as we love the Little Red Dot for being a food haven, it’s still hard to find the real deal (though several of our favourite restaurants have come pretty close!). But fret not, meat lovers: we’ve found the best butchers in Singapore who can make your meaty feast a roaring success. Even better, most do home deliveries, so all you have to do is break out your barbecue or piping hot oven!
The best butchers in Singapore: where to buy top quality meat
1. The Meat Club
New-age Aussie meat delivery business, The Meat Club, is one we’re big fans of, and it has incredibly tender meat and very cool flexible subscription options. Let us explain: these guys supply all-Australian beef and lamb, fly it pre-packed in meal-size portions into Singapore, and then deliver it to your door. The packaging technology it uses allows the meat to last in the fridge for 28 days (14 days for mince), so your meat is never frozen. You can shop as a single purchase or join any of the subscriptions where you can edit your basket before each delivery easily, ship your basket immediately if you’re out of meat or even skip delivery if you have too much! How handy is that? The best part: you can place a top up, one off order, independent of the subscription.We have tried and tested the product, and the tenderness is out of this world.
Does it deliver? Of course!
2. The New Grocer
Giving you access to some of the freshest and most premium, carefully sourced meats, The New Grocer often ends up on the plates of Michelin-starred restos. You know you’re in great hands when you shop for its beef meatballs, grain-fed lamb skewers, Oxford bangers and many other high-quality options. The ready-to-eat meals are great if you’re short on time. Check out their 2kg barbecue box with an assortment of pork and beef sausages plus skewers. Did we mention its artisanal beef sauce and black truffle sauce (yum!) to go along with the feast. You’re spoilt for choices when you check out the seafood and charcuterie options. Psst – you can even make special requests and queries via WhatsApp at 8768 1775!

A halal butcher that doesn’t just serve any steak – this meatery makes sure you know your source. With a copious selection of halal-certified prime meats that are sourced from some of the best farms in Argentina, New Zealand and other countries, you’re promised top quality meats. Free-range, grain-fed or grass-fed, The Meatery wants to cater to all preferences. If you’re conscious about the butchery’s ethical practices, be assured that they don’t promote the use of antibiotics, GMO or growth-hormones. We especially love the yakiniku set that contains a delish combination of full blood Wagyu, Australian Wagyu and in-house ponzo dipping sauce. What’s not to love?

The Scottish salmon are harvested from sustainable fish farms off Scotland’s rugged coast, and its gourmet sausages are impressive.

While you’re there, add some fresh produce, a bottle of artisanal Scottish spirits or a bottle of Australian red wine to go with all that flame-cooked meat.
