One of the best known butchers in Hong Kong, Feather & Bone is hard to beat when it comes to quality and sheer choice. All of its meat is carefully selected from award-winning Australian farms, ensuring each cut is of the highest grade. We love that Feather & Bone works directly with farmers and artisans; in doing so, this cuts out the middle men, allowing us, the consumer, to enjoy the best prices possible.

In addition to beef, you’ll find a tempting selection of lamb, pork, poultry and seafood.

Convenient delivery and wholesale prices? Argyle Black is spoiling us with its selection of affordable, quality meat. While this wholesale butchery stocks pork, poultry, lamb and even wine, it’s the beef that Argyle Black is really known for. This butchers pick sources the finest Black Angus and Wagyu Beef directly from the South West Slopes of New South Wales, Australia, importing it to Hong Kong by air on a weekly basis. Only the best is hand-selected for the store, with cuts requiring a marble score of 1-2 for grass fed or 2-3 for grain fed, before being wet-aged for up to 30 days for optimal tenderness. Don’t miss out on Argyle Black’s seafood selection either, which comes from sustainable fisheries in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

The Butchers Club
Did you know that burger joint The Butchers Club has its very own online butcher’s shop? The restaurant in fact started out as a butchery all the way back in 2013, and has been keeping us well stocked with quality meats ever since. The beef at The Butchers Club is sourced from its partner farm in New South Wales, with the cows reared to particular specifications in order to create different flavour profiles (that’s why it tastes so good!). The Butchers Club then dry-ages each cut of beef at its own facility on Hong Kong Island for different time periods, to highlight the unique flavours of each steak. Consider us sold. As well as beef, The Butchers Club stocks poultry, seafood and even plant-based alternatives – there really is something for everyone here!

We’re always impressed by the knowledge of the staff here – if you’re shopping in person at one of the stores, make sure to ask the team for cooking tips to get the most out of your meat!

In addition to this butcher’s online store, there are currently three butcher shop locations in the city situated in Mid-Levels, Happy Valley and Ap Lei Chau where you can pick up everything from Australian grass-fed rib-eye, homemade sausages, gourmet burgers and more. The barbecue and hot pot packs are our top picks for easy hosting, along with its deli specials of cold cuts, cheeses, dips and even Australian pies!
Hong Kong Wet Markets
There are plenty of bargains to be had in Hong Kong’s wet markets – if you can overcome the pungent smells that can accompany the meat sections! If you’re not fluent in Cantonese, then it’s best to come prepared with the Chinese translation of the cut you’re looking for to avoid any confusion. The meat available here is of course guaranteed to be both local and fresh, coming in at reasonable prices.
