The Butcher’s Wife Review
The Butcher’s Wife serves unique gluten-free European food. Every dish we had here was like “Wow, what is that?” kind of feeling. They serve a variety of vegan, vegetarian and normal food inside which can cater to everyone. The highlight would be their chargrilled wagyu picanha, it was smokey, tender, and had a medium-strong umami flavor. Their dessert sticky white corn bruless was also surprisingly nice, not too sweet, and had a passionfruit sorbet to balance the dessert.
Things I like
- Food creativity, each food was something most had never experienced before in Asia.
- Chargrilled wagyu picanha, it was smokey, tender, and had a medium-strong umami flavor
- Sticky white corn bruless was also surprisingly nice, not too sweet, and had a passionfruit sorbet to balance the dessert
- Some food visuals in their menu. As the food here is rather different, it would help to have some visual representation.
The Butcher’s Wife Food & Price
This was our first time at The Butchers’ Wife, we always walk past this restaurant and finally decided to try one day. For starters, we order their Roots Salad ($16.00), which is a combination of fennel, radish watermelon & coconut, and fermented green chili dressing. It was interesting, a little sweet from the sauce, and refreshing from the fruit.
Next, we order their cassava chips ($12.00) with kimchi tartar sauce. Their fries here are cut into a unique shape and aren’t like your regular fries which provide a nice crust on the outside and flufflyness inside. I like this simple dish and the kimchi tartar sauce was surprisingly a good combination.
We order our 3rd appetizer Croquetas ($14.00) as it seems interesting to us. It is a crispy & creamy croquetas, fermented cashew-chili sauce, and sliced lime.
For the main course, we tried their famous chargrilled wagyu picanha ($49.00). We really enjoyed this dish, it had the smokey flavors from the chargrilled, the beef had a medium to strong umami flavor and it was quite tender.
To end the night of what felt like a food adventure, we had their twist on Creme Brulee, the sticky white corn bruless ($14.00). It is Brazilian white corn, coconut milk, passion fruit sorbet and it is also vegan.
The Butcher’s Wife Service & Ambient
The restaurant is usually fully booked during dinner time so best make a reservation prior to your visit.
The staff was friendly and prompt with a dim lighting atmosphere. Good spot to bring for dating.
