The Butcher’s Wife

Celiacs and gluten-free advocates rejoice, ain't no grain in Tiong Bahru's latest game. Taking over the old Open Door Policy digs in Yong Siak is this dedicated gluten-free restaurant that dishes up brave, contemporary cooking that will make your heart sing and your stomach smile.

The music, the ambiance, the decor – its all on beat, and the wine list is solid.

Our menu favourites are the Green Pea Hummus (sounds bland but its anything but, with grilled lamb sausage, yoghurt, mint and pistachios), the Carrot and Quinoa Tartare, followed by the Beef Burger (yep completely grain free!) and the Chestnuts Papardelle. The Strawberry Pavlova is also very good.

These guys have literally just opened their doors, so give them a bit of time to get the service right. The grain free movement is finally starting to gain some momentum in Singapore, so don’t be surprised if more cool little places like this open around the backstreets.

We shall be back!
