7 Best Butchers in Singapore to Get Quality Steak, Pork, Chicken, Seafood & More

When it comes to our diet, vegans are correct to say that a plant-based diet can be healthy, varied and hugely satisfying.

Not to mention that this type of diet is generally more environmentally friendly and will spare animals from the cruel fate of being part of the human food chain as well.

I am all for eating less meat and have respect for people who made that choice not to do so. But, I doubt that I would ever give up meat completely.

In my opinion, nothing comes close to the taste of quality meats like tender grass-fed steak, juicy free-range chicken or stuffed gourmet sausages that are a cut above what you can find at the supermarkets.

If you are a meat lover like me and want to get something for your weekly BBQ or prepare a nice steak dinner for date night; you are in the right place.

Here are some of the best butchers in Singapore that will satisfy your cravings for meat.

Do save this article for the next time you are planning a BBQ or meal!


1. Ginkakuji Onishi SG (By Astons)

First up we have Ginkakuji Onishi SG, a Japanese meat shop opened by Aston Soon, the owner of Aston Specialties.

Ginkakuji Onishi SG | Facebook

Soon has stated that he was a big fan of the original Ginkakuji ONISHI: a long-established meat shop in Kyoto that has connections with popular Japanese Wagyu brands, Murasawa Beef and Kyotamba Hirai Beef.

Soon loved it so much that he decided to bring this traditional Japanese speciality meat shop to Singapore.

This is good for us as the shop offers grade A3 – A5 Wagyu beef from Japan with a large selection of prime secondary cuts that are not readily available elsewhere.

This includes cuts like tenderloin, ribeye and sirloin steaks, chuck short ribs, Japanese pork and some ready to eat food as well.

Here is their latest item list for reference:

Do note that this item list is dynamic as what they sell depends on what they have in stock.

But what caught our eye was the A3 Wagyu ribeye steak that goes for $17.50 per 100g.
