This Butcher Boy knows how to grill!

A hop and a step away from his fine dining restaurant Cure, is Chef Andrew Walsh’s latest project – Butcher Boy. Creeping cholesterol levels had kept me from rushing to the place, considering that the moniker presents the Asian-inspired bar and grill as being nothing short of a meat-lover’s paradise, but on a whim on […]

The Butcher Burger Dog

The Butcher’s Kitchen – value for money meats

Already familiar with The Butcher retail stores, where I occasionally buy fresh meats from the Parkway Parade branch, I decided to check out their new (and first) full-fledged restaurant, The Butcher’s Kitchen, at Suntec City last week.

Naughty Nuri Platter

{Closed} Killer ribs at Naughty Nuri’s Katong!

Update 8 December 2016: Naughty Nuri’s Katong has closed and has been replaced by Wicked Grill.  Naughty Nuri’s hails from Ubud, Bali and is most famous for its barbequed ribs, rather than more classic “Indonesian” fare. And with good reason. Sticky, sweet, fall-off-the-bone meat with scrumptious burnt bits (aren’t burnt bits the best?) – even […]

Camp Kilo Ribs Chicken

Camp Kilo Charcoal Club

Last weekend I went for a buddy’s backyard BBQ. Well, not quite. Not my buddy’s BBQ but Kilo’s new joint – Camp Kilo Charcoal Club at Kampong Bugis. Previously occupied by Loysel’s Toy, home to many a caffeine sesh with my ex-colleagues, Camp Kilo is the latest in the spurt of BBQ joints sprouting up in […]

Wakanui Fillet

Wakanui Grill Dining

The New Zealand beef at Wakanui isn’t called Ocean beef for nothing. Raised on grass and switched over in the last few months to grains while enjoying the ocean views, the cows are relaxed, which makes for a more tender beef. So the manager said. (Well, I don’t know if the “ocean views” really play […]

So after some frantic searching online, we decided to head on to Red Eye Smokehouse, a new smoke shack along Jalan Besar. UPDATE: Camp Kilo just opened at Kampong Bugis, so we’ve got another great option […]
