Sasha’s Fine Foods provides high quality, ethically sourced, clean and fresh meats and fish from Australia and New Zealand. Their fish selections currently include fresh salmon from Norway and New Zealand, tiger prawns and barramundi. While they are always looking to expand their selection, they are commited to quality, tracibility and sustainablity above all and will only bring new products if they meet their strict standards. Shop online only and get your food delivered the next day if you place the order before 5 pm. Closed on Sundays.
Specializing in Barramundi, Kuhlbarra farms their fish right here in Singapore to give you some of the freshest and cleanest fish on the island. The water in which the Barramundi is raised is tested every 10 minutes to ensure it meets the most rigid standards and their fish only eat the highest quality fish food. Guaranteed hormone-free, antibiotic-free and low in mercury, Kuhlbarra claims the “best tasting Barramundi” in Singapore. They harvest to order, process and vacuum pack the fish within hours. Free delivery for orders over $50.
