Taking over the space at Bottura at Suntec City Mall is The Butcher's Kitchen by the renowned butchery, The Butcher. With 14 years in the market, The Butcher works directly with award-winning accredited producers, visiting their farms and processing facilities to authenticate the farm to table dining experience. Customers can truly enjoy their meat with a peace of mind. The new outlet also offers an array of handmade burgers, pizzas, pastas, pies and a premium gelato parlour.
Gourmet Sausages 4.2/5
We started with some light bites with the gourmet sausages that are handmade in-house using Australian meat. Diners can choose 3 out of the 7 homemade sausages to make a combo platter. Available on the menu are Country Style Beef Sausage, Beef Chorizo, Honey, Mint & Rosemary Lamb, Traditional Pork, Chicken Sausage, Cumberland Pork and Apple Sage Rosemary Pork. The platter also comes with grilled garden vegetables. Among the trio I tired, I preferred the beef chorizo as the flavour is more robust.
Grilled Chicken 4/5
The Grilled Chicken ($16) comes with a choice of thigh or breast, served with grilled vegetables. For the sauce, diners have a choice of sriracha, teriyaki, tandoori or honey mustard sauce.
Lamb Rack 4.5/5
The lamb at The Butcher's Kitchen is sourced from Lake View. The Lamb Rack ($25) is perfectly grilled and served with grilled garden vegetables in balsamic dressing and premium homemade brown sauce.
Pork Ribeye 3.5/5
While the Pork Ribeye ($29) from the multi-award winning Bangalow, Australia is known for its quality and taste, it has a porky taste that I did not quite enjoy. However I have to say the piece of pork was well cooked, tender and juicy.
Beef Ribeye 4.5/5
For the beef, we had the highly sought after Australia shorthorn breed, from Thousand Guineas. The Thousand Guineas Grain fed Ribeye ($38) is well grilled, tender and juicy. It has a nice buttery flavour too.
New Zealand King Salmon 4.5/5
For those that has a preference for fish, one can opt for the New Zealand King Salmon ($29) which is wild caught from the cool, deep international waters. Cooked to a nice pink with crispy skin, this is probably one of my favourite dishes besides the meats.
Besides the grilled meats and seafood, The Butcher's Kitchen does offer Italian fares on the menu such as pasta and pizza. The Carbonara ($15) tossed in a creamy sauce with crispy bacon and egg yolk was flavourful and enjoyable. However I thought the pasta was soft and overcooked.
Burger Dog 4.5/5
A must try at The Butcher's Kitchen is the Burger Dog ($10) which comes with a choice of beef, pork or lamb sandwiched in freshly baked ciabatta bread. The burger dog started from the butchery at their river valley outlet. It becomes so popular that it brought it to table at Suntec City Mall. I tried both the pork and beef. While the pork was tender, I felt that the beef patty is more flavourful and the texture works better with the homemade bread.
You can finish your meal at The Butcher's Kitchen on a sweet note with hand-crafted gelato from third generation of artisan Italian gelato markers. Besides the classic flavours such as vanilla and tiramisu, there are unusual flavours such chendol, salted egg and chilli crab.
