With the weather being extremely unpredictable these days, you might prefer to spend your Easter Sunday at home.
Easter Sunday is coming soon and what better to celebrate in Singapore than with a cosy, at-home feast that includes frozen lamb takeaways! Opt for these quality butchers when buying your lamb takeaways.
1. The Farmer’s Market
The Farmer’s Market, a leading online butcher in Asia, is ALL about providing sustainably-farmed, antibiotic- and hormone-free, quality meats (and seafood!) sourced only from the best places in New Zealand and Australia. They even gave a thorough breakdown on how to choose quality meats on our recent magazine issue! Speaking of, The Farmer’s Market offers an array of lamb cuts, sourced from Amelia Park Lamb in Western Australia and Thomas Foods in South Australia. That’s not all, even if you’re a newbie to cooking, peruse its recipe list (for all types of meats) for inspiration on how to cook up a mean feast this Easter! One useful one we think you may like? Its Roast Lamb Loin Chops recipe. Tip? Enjoy free shipping on orders above $150.
2. The Fishwives
Don’t be fooled by its name! The Fishwives is also known for supplying some of SG’s best cuts of lamb. What’s great about its lamb? The Te Mana sheep are sustainably reared to roam free in their remote South Island hill stations, where they graze on wild grasses and chicory pastures. The end result? A really delicious meat that works well with roasting, BBQing or slow cooking and has naturally high levels of healthy Omega-3 and polyunsaturated fats. For this Easter, Te Mana – its supplier for delicious New Zealand lamb – is running a really special promotional price on its back straps and racks are when you shop instore or online now. Double Racks which are now $55.80 a packet (formerly $68 per packet) and a packet of Lamb Backstraps is now $36 (down from $42 ). This offer is only valid until the 16th April. Oh, another tip? For every purchase of Te Mana lamb, you stand a chance to win a dinner for 2 at the swanky, Bar-A-Thym. (To add to the Easter feast, shop its Easter egg collection here too!)
Extra tip? The Farmer’s Market‘s Emma Pike and The Fishwives‘ Rebecca Forwood has joined forces to launch SG’s first alcohol-free bottle shop, Free Spirit. Both founders passionately believe that those consumers should be free to choose a sophisticated adult drinking experience and not be restricted to just sweet sodas and mocktails. If you’re into that? Consider ordering from them to complete your stay-home Easter feast.
The Fishwives, Cluny Court, 501 Bukit Timah Rd., #01-05B, 259764
3. The Meat Club
What makes The Meat Club special? (Apart from its quality and sustainability, of course.) Its “auto-pilot” demand model only sources products its members want. This means, less food wastage. So, worry less while enjoying cruelty-free lamb takeaways from this online butcher store in Singapore. From minced lamb ($25.50 for 500g) to lamb shoulder ($93.70 for 2kg) and frenched lamb racks ($75 for 750g), its selection of lamb cuts are all free-range. Also, have a go and try its online recipes for any occasion (yes, we’re talking dinner parties, kids parties and even recipes for a girls’ night in and tv dinner!) if you need a little inspo.
While not lamb-related, The Meat Club is now offering an Easter Bundle Special (now $100, down from $200) that’s complete with free-range Lamb Rack, free range Pork Thyme Sausages, cage-free Chicken Thigh, Aussie Beef Burger Patty and, check this – a free kilogram of Smoked Salmon! (It’s also gluten-free and halal.)
4. Oh Deli!
Boasting superior Dorper Lamb from Australia, let Oh Deli! treat you this Easter. Because the Dorper lamb sheds its wool, the result is clean, fresh taste with low aroma. Some faves? The Dorper Lamb Burger Patty ($4.50 for 120g) and the Boneless Dorper Lamb Shoulder ($4.39 for 100g). A must try! Shop its lamb takeaways online or at its East Coast outlet in Singapore (free delivery for orders over $100).

5. Meat The Butcher
Sourced from the finest pastures in Australia and Wales, Meat the Butcher sells crazy-popular Welsh lamb. With the distinction of having a PGI rating (Protected Geographical Indication), the Welsh Lamb’s traceability and safety are of the highest standard (on par with Parma Ham from Italy). Shop online (with free delivery for orders over $150) or at their Bukit Timah store.
Meat the Butcher, 615 Bukit Timah Rd., 269716
