New addition to Keong Saik Street, Butcher Boy, serves up Asian-inspired treats with a cool cocktail menu to match. Here’s what we’ve been sipping on…
Where are we bringing our crew for a Friday night drink in Singapore? Butcher Boy – the Asian-inspired grill and bar that recently kicked off on Keong Saik –looks set to become one of our regulars for good food and good times.
Butcher Boy is the new baby of chef-restaurateur Andrew Walsh of Cure; award-winner Knut Randhem is the man behind the bar. His Asian spin on the cocktail menu serves up seriously refreshing numbers (think Thai basil and lychee), but he knows how to bring the intensity too. We suspect he has a thing for Dictador rum, so expect a few cameo appearances in his cocktails.
Since this is Friday and we’re ready to unwind, we’re up for Butcher Boy’s signature Street Side Milk Punch ($18), inspired by a traditional Thai milk tea. Yes it’s served in a plastic bag, and yes it packs a punch thanks to generous pour of cachaça. A hit of salted caramel syrup makes it go down quite like dessert.
