There’s nothing quite like the feeling of sinking one’s teeth into a juicy steak, unless you’re vegan of course, which in that case, we’ve got alternatives for you too.
After being stuck at home for so long during the circuit breaker and Phase 1, many of us must have honed our masterchef skills. There’s also no real need to rush out to steak restaurants and contribute to the crowd to satisfy our meat cravings.
So we’ve compiled a list of gourmet butchers that offer delivery services. If you’re planning a carnivorous feast, these quality butchers will provide you with a plethora of premium meats — including grass-fed and free-range options — to delight the palates of your household.
