12 Reasons Huber’s Butchery Is Better Than Your Local Supermarket

hubers-exterior

Singapore’s favourite premium meat and sausage purveyors Huber’s Butchery has moved to a bigger and better premise — from its previous location at 18A Dempsey Road to across the road at 22 Dempsey Road, boasting a 13,000 square feet space.

The track up Dempsey Hill is worth it because it’s Huber’s Butchery we’re talking about. Huber’s Butchery gives you more than what our local supermarkets would offer.

Huber’s Pte Ltd was founded by Ryan and Andre Huber, which first started in a factory in Pandan Loop for wholesale selling meats, manufactured sausages, hams and assortments of cold-cuts.

The transition to consumer retail began in 2008, as Huber’s Pte Ltd opened its first butchery under the moniker, Huber’s Butchery.

Huber’s offers a wide variety of meats that can be prepared just the way you want it. With an online website where you can place order from, Huber’s is probably the most modernised butchery in Singapore right now.

I mean, we’re talking about game meat, freshly made in-store sausages, a gargantuan selection of cold meats, cheeses and also available butchers to toss you ready to eat meat.

Here are 12 reasons exactly why Huber’s Butchery is so friggin’ amazing and you should really be buying from them (whenever possible), instead of neighbourhood supermarket.

1. Better quality meats with an in-store dry aged chiller

hubers butchery-9218

The fresh meat department of Huber’s is sectioned neatly, which also features information about the farms where the meat came from to educate customers.

A dry ageing cabinet will also be available for on-site customisation service, and customers can choose how many days they want their meat to be dry aged for, which will produce a deeper flavour of your preference. Just ask and it shall be given!

Huber’s Butchery is also an exclusive retailer of the highly popular Rioplatense Argentine Beef, Toriyama Umami Wagyu, Primrose Farms’ Canadian pork and marbled Mangalican pork.

With an in-store chiller, the freshness of the meat is guaranteed because the entire process of handling the meat is done in-house. The only time it isn’t in utmost care is the journey back home from the store, which isn’t really a problem unless you live in Johor Bahru. However, free ice packs are available for the journey home.

2. Wider selection of cold cuts, including some that are produced locally

hubers-jamonserrano

Wider selection is an understatement when it comes to Huber’s Butchery because they’re all set out to wow you away. Freshly sliced meats are available on the second floor of the supermarket, which is accessible via a ramp from outside the bistro.

Be thoroughly spoiled for choice with panels after panels of cold cuts, and choose from the whole jamon leg to kurobuta ham slices, do note that the jamon is not made locally.

hubers-meatloaf

If you’re craving for some salami, go crazy with their numerous variations or just settle for the chorizo. Also, get yourself some homemade meatloaf — because everybody loves meatloaf.

There will always be something for any occasion and you’ll be damned for choice.

hubers-coldcts

Available for purchase, the 1.5kg cold cut platter requires an advance three days pre-order, yums!

It takes considerable time and effort to create these thinly sliced beauties, but Huber’s is up for the challenge.

3. Find rare, exotic game meats

hubers-lamb-hearts

European cuisine especially, has many dishes involving game meat that cannot be found in your local supermarket. If you are exploring this side of gastronomy, Huber’s Butchery should be your first choice.

hubers-eel

I must admit, I’m a huge fan of game meat and I’m not sorry for that. Rabbits are cute, but they’re also pretty delicious. Don’t be hatin’.

hubers-pigeons

If you have tried exploring the frozen wastelands of the local supermarket, you’ll know it’s quite hard to find these exotic gems in Singapore – Huber’s Butchery has alleviated that problem with their frozen selection of rabbit, pigeon, lamb hearts, quail, kangaroo and many more.

4. Choose from over 100 types of cheeses

Situated on the second storey is an extensive cheese section, complemented by the daily baked breads and large selections of crackers.

I know there are cheeses in our local supermarkets, but when pitting against 100 over kinds of cheeses in Huber’s Butchery, everything else pales in comparison.

The selection of fromage has further increased to 150 variations, making Huber’s Butchery’s cheese selection the largest in Singapore – something that all cheese lovers will rejoice in.

There’s tons of brie, a good selection of blue cheese, truffle cheese and goats cheese. Grab a few of them; throw in some wine, fruits and cheese platter.

5. Personable butchers behind the counters

Many of the butchers at Huber’s are also trained-chefs, and are equipped to give helpful tips on selecting your cut of meat, as well as tips on how to cook them.

Help is everywhere; the friendly butchers will give customers the best advise on what meats fit your recipe perfectly, a delicious recipe or two to take home. You no longer have to depend on Google for your carnivorous needs.

Huber’s Butchery is the only Singapore retailer of Stockyard Beef, the most awarded beef brand in Australia as well as the 10 Vetas Jabugo, Spanish Ham used by El Celler de Can Roca, one of the top restaurants in the world. These guys know their meats and aren’t afraid to show it.

6. All your gourmet cooking needs in one place

Singapore is extremely globalized and our local supermarkets try their best to bring in different products from all around the world so everyone gets a share of it.

But it can get pretty annoying when I’ve to travel to multiple places just to get specially imported sauces and condiments.

This is when Huber’s Butchery is ready to kick some serious ass with their wide imported products and condiments from all around the world. You can finally get French butter, marrons puree (chestnut puree), and herring, eel and other fancy products without travelling around Singapore.

7. Turn into a masterchef easily with all the work already done

Another highlight at Huber’s Butchery is the longest meat and sausages counter in Singapore, measuring at more than 40m long.

There’s a sausage machine in store that will churn out fresh sausages, which you can stand there and watch the magic happening live before your eyes. Their raw sausages, which are aplenty, are made fresh in-house with no added MSG and preservatives, so you’re in good hands.

If the quantity is large enough, with a minimum order of 5kg, you can even customize your own sausage recipe and get Huber’s to produce it for you.

9. More than 90% of Huber’s meat and meat products are growth hormone free

hubers-marinated

Around 90% of the meat and meat products that Huber’s Butchery sells are growth hormone free, so you don’t have to worry about the overconsumption of these additives, which may or may not affect your personal health; some studies show that growth hormones used in animals increases the risk or cancer, while others claim its perfectly safe.

They say it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

10. Most meats are all imported chilled, not frozen

hubers butchery-9252

The meats available in Huber’s Butchery are freshly imported from various locations, bringing you the best selection and it is always done chilled, not frozen.

Frozen meats tend to lose moisture when defrosted, causing them to be less tender as compared to chilled meats.

hubers-slicing

The meats at Huber’s are kept at their optimum quality and nothing is compromised with the more labour-intensive chilled treatment.

11. Air-flown vegetables from Australia

hubers-greens

We’ve mentioned a lot about the meats, but Huber’s also offers a balance of greens as well.

12. Dine at the bistro while grocery shopping
