Mango Menus' Guide to Meat Shopping in Hong Kong
While you can buy local meat from the wet markets and imported meat from the supermarkets, for convenience, finer cuts, and organic, imported meat, Mango Menus recommend the following suppliers. There are also exclusive discounts for Mango Menus' readers.
Jett Foods is an online retailer selling premium frozen meats and seafood, all from overseas. Products include UDSA prime, US certified Angus Beef, Spanish Duroc pork, NZ lamb, NZ grassfed rib eye (Mango Menus highly recommends), sirloin and US 100% premium Berkshire pork mince, US organic chicken and seafood from all over the world. Competitive prices and 10% of first order, and a further 5% if you use the discount code mangomenus when you check out!

Delivers everywhere in HK apart from DB. Free delivery for orders over $1000 and no minimum spend or delivery charge for new customers. We highly recommend their lamb tenderloins, beef eye fillets, grassfed beef and lamb mince.
Farmer's Kitchen: This online retailer just launched in Hong Kong and delivers naturally farmed, 100% grass fed chilled beef and lamb 5 days a week around Hong Kong. With over 150 years experience in quality meat production and agricultural farming in Australia, they pride themselves on selling the highest quality beef and lamb that is hormone free, full of flavour and good for you. They also have a long standing relationship directly with the farmers in Australia that provide these quality products. Other fine food products are tried and tested before being added to their online store to ensure they only provide top quality products to their customers.

TC Deli, in Hang Hau sells a wide range of imported regular meats (mainly Aussie and American) including free range poultry, ostrich, kangaroo and a large variety of fish, charcuterie, bakery items and patisseries. If you don't live locally, Mango Menus thoroughly recommends making a short day trip there and combining it with a steak lunch at Lardos just next door, who will even provide your kids with colouring pencils while you kick back with a glass of red.
Lung Wah is a retail and wholesale meat supplier based in Shek Tong Sui whose latest product list you can download here in Chinese. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the English version. They sell mostly frozen food, but also have chilled meat. Provenance includes Brazil, US, New Zealand, Australia, Holland, Spain and Scotland and they also stock organic/natural and hormone free products. For most steaks, pork chops and fish, they can cut the thickness and amount according to your liking. Delivery is free of charge for purchases exceeeding $1000. They deliver to Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, the NT and Ma Wan, but not to Tung Chung or the outlying Islands.
Woo Hing Hong (Frozen Meats), Matheson St, Causeway Bay (2891 8215). For cheaper imported meat, but not organic, try this wholesaler/retailer on the corner of Matheson St and Leighton Road, across from the hotel, Crowne Plaza. Cash only. Mon-Sat 09:00-18:00 Sun 09:00-17:00. To give you an idea of prices in September 2014, the IBP brand (US Choice) of beef rib fingers (perfect for long braises, slow smoking or thin slice grilling) was $48/lb with each pack coming in at just under $100.
For slightly cheaper still, drive 30 minutes out of town to Sai Kung. Shek Kee Frozen Meat Company is a very basic retail outlet in 17 Kung Tack Lung Back. It is in the alley behind the bar called Steamers, just past Baboushka, the children’s clothes shop. It’s worth driving there the first time, so you can see what you are buying. Second time around (for orders over $2000), you can fax your order to 2792 1995 and have it delivered. Open 7 days a week, 8.30-5.30pm, shutting for lunch 12-1pm.
