Dinner @ Butcher Boy

November 26, 2017 in Asian, Chinese by thywhaleliciousfay

Was instagram-surfing when I chanced upon Butcher Boys; An Asian-inspired grill and bar. Interested to find out if it would be similar to Burnt Ends, I decided to check it out with my friend. And reservation was made for 2 via Chope. With only 2 seatings, I chose 8.15pm over 6.30pm since it’s impossible to reach at 6.30pm.

(Though it seemed they’ve since removed the 2 seatings from Chope. Instead, reservation before 8.15pm are subjected to a dining period of 1 hour 45 minutes to accommodate the next seating.)

And from the menu, my friend and I ordered:-

1) Crispy fish skin, $6 (above) – Nori salt, sesame tahini.

2) Kanpachi sashimi, $24 (above) – Soy, tokyu turnip.

3) Fried squid, $20 (above) – Curry, burnt onion.


4) Fried chicken bao, $18 (above) – Yuzu kosho, kewpie.

5) Duck banh mi, $18 (above) – Liver pate, sriracha.


6) Butcher boy bacon & cheese burger, $28 (above) – With fries.


7) Peanut butter and berry ice cream sandwich, $10 (above)

Unfortunately, Butcher Boy was nowhere close to Burnt Ends in terms of food. Butcher Boys’ core wasn’t grilled meats (which I arrived at the restaurant hoping so) since they offered buns, etc on their limited menu. Would I recommend Butcher Boys? Hmm… Not really. The place was too noisy for my liking considering that my friend and I met to catch up over food. The space was separated into two where the second (and slightly elevated) half was the bar. And one can also say I was surprised at how the drinking crowd was strong and rowdy on a Tuesday night.

So no, I wouldn’t recommend Butcher Boy. But I reckon it would be a fun place for drinks.
