The F&B industry holds a strong belief that forming good relations with butchers is important as it helps you to get the best deals and the best cuts. You also get to learn something new from time to time which is never a bad thing.

Whether you’re looking for a thick, gorgeously marbled filet mignon or a humble rump, here are 5 gourmet butchers in Singapore to get restaurant-standard meats.
MEAT THE BUTCHER
Fresh meat should never be frozen if you are particular about quality so kudos to this humble butcher for ensuring that all its meat is flown in fresh from its source and never frozen.

It goes without saying that Huber’s Butchery and Bistro at Dempsey is one of the best gourmet grocers on the island and the massive crowd it draws on weekends is a testament of its popularity. This European-style butcher flies in only premium meat and makes its famous gourmet sausages on site.
Huber’s Butchery features two levels of meaty goodness—the second floor has a stunning array of cured meats, sausages, hams and cheese, and the first offers liquor from spirits to wines and possibly the largest deli counter we have ever seen!
Marvel at the amazing spectacle that is massive slabs of dry-aged beef being carved from over the counter—bet you will not find steak cuts as thick and well marbled at any commercial supermarket.
