I’ve written several posts in the past that have mentioned where we buy certain types of meats but I thought it would be handy to have all of our favorites in one place.
This post will be pretty dry if you don’t live in Singapore but since my Chicken Man post is one of the top visited posts of all time, I think a few people here might just want to hug me for this one.
Some of you might have better options than mine so if you do, please feel free to comment. I love a good find and if it brings us quality meat for a cheaper price in Singapore, I’m all about it!
When buying meat at the grocery stores in Singapore it has usually come to them frozen (from some of the suppliers I’m listing below) and then thawed so you must use it within a few days or cook it up and then freeze it. Grocery stores will advertise if it needs to be used in 3 days or if it’s fresh. If it’s not clearly marked, always assume it’s been thawed and you should use it soon.
Fassler’s – Smoked salmon. They also have a range of other smoked fish and homemade products like healthy soups.
QB Foods – Beef (roast, steak, minced), Johnsonville Brats/Italian Sausages, Thanksgiving turkeys/hams, pork loin, pork ribs, minced chicken and minced pork, etc. We also buy most of our cheese from QB. I will also get a few Butterball turkey breasts, roast them and slice them up for lunchmeat. This freezes really well and is much healthier and cheaper than buying deli meat at the grocery stores.
Chicken Man – Fresh Chicken
I just ordered 20 big and juicy butterfly chicken breasts this week. The cost was $50SGD for about 8kg of boneless skinless, FRESH and ready to freeze chicken. And delivered right to my door. NICE!
Ben Foods – Frozen lamb, bacon, frozen fish and salmon fillets, etc. They have different things each week so it’s always fun to see what you’ll get.
I occasionally buy some meats from the grocery store, usually Cold Storage because it’s 4 minutes walk from my house. They will occasionally have turkey sausage links from the U.S. and I also get “lunch meat” aka pizza topping there.
Meidi-Ya – Sushi meat
I don’t buy much meat, if any, from the wet markets. I’m just not educated enough to know where to go or know how fresh it is. I do know that if I needed to go to a wet market for meat I would go to Tekka Market on Wednesday and only because that’s what my Singaporean chef friend told me to do.
Finding cheap meat in Singapore is impossible but finding quality and cheapER meat is definitely possible. Might take a trip here and there but if you plan ahead, it’s totally worth it!
