The Butcher’s Kitchen, one of the largest butcher retailers in Singapore with over 15 years of history, has launched Singapore’s first-ever Flaming Hokkaido Beef Bowl (U.P. S$23.90). Lauded as first-of-its-kind and doused with a Flaming cognac concoction for a culinary spectacle, contrarians would surmise that it is more sizzle than substance. But don’t just take my words, take it from the beef connoisseurs and gourmands and they are raving for it.
The reason? The meat’s origin – Hokkaido. Why Hokkaido? The island’s fairly low temperatures throughout the season allows the beef cattle to develop more fats naturally. Coupled with the fresh clean air, water and high-quality natural feed, making Hokkaido beef one of the highest quality in Japan. Rest assured that The Butcher’s stringent quality control ensures the meat imported are free of anti-biotic and hormone growth promotants (steroids).
Digging into this gourmet bowl is a delicious indulgence by itself. The beef slices are succulent, flavourful yet moist even after the flame. Topped with The Butcher’s Signature sauce and parsley for garnish, the cognac concoction imbues the premium beef with a subtle fruity and floral note. While you might not get drunk with this, the alcohol did elevate the taste profile and sensation of the meat.
And now there’s more cheer for your palate and pocket! As part of the Grand Opening Special, from 13 January to 14 February, The Butcher’s Flaming Hokaaaido Beef Bowl will go at 50% off!
Besides the star dish, there’s two other non-beef options: The Butcher’s Pork Bowl (U.P. S$12.90) and The Butcher’s Salmon Bowl (U.P. S$13.90). The Salmon features fresh Atlantic Salmon, which is farmed in Kvaroy, a tiny island off coast of central Norway. Lightly seared to retain moisture and a nice crisp at the edge, the salmon is something not to chomp down straight but to savour, every piece of it.
Liking The Butcher’s Pork Bowl is an acquired taste. Featuring The Butcher’s very own Thai-style Grilled Pork – the process of slow-roasting the meat allows the juiciness to be ‘lock-in’ while having the texture perfectly done. Imported from Linley Valley Western Australia, the Free-rang pork are of top quality and has a remarkable taste.
Overall, if you are looking for high quality, fresh and safe meat with a foretold knowledge of its origins guaranteed by the meat specialist, then you come to the right place. The Butcher’s Kitchen is quintessentially fine dining on delicious, top-notch meat without breaking the banks or the formalities.
