The Butcher’s Kitchen– Indulge in organic, hormone and antibiotic free meats

If the recently opened The Butcher’s Kitchen sounds familiar, it’s because it is opened by renowned butchery The Butcher which has been in Singapore for 14 years. This is one of the rare few places in Singapore where you can purchase your favourite meats to cook at home after sampling them for lunch or dinner.

The Butcher’s Kitchen’s philosophy is to retail or serve meats that are certified organic from naturally raised animals, free from antibiotics, hormone promoters and steroids. The Butcher works directly with award-winning accredited producers, visiting their farms and processing facilities to authenticate the farm to table experience.

Being a person who cares about eating clean and natural foods, it is always good to be able to have more organic options. Although it naturally costs more to go the organic route, at least such options are made available, and hopefully this means more people become exposed to the philosophy of knowing what goes into their food.

When at The Butcher’s Kitchen, one naturally has to check out the meats. The meats are prepared by grilling or pan frying with minimal marinating to focus on the quality and not the sauces. But actually, their menu is quite wide, and they have also have fish, pizzas, pastas, pies and even ice-cream, 2 huge counters worth in fact!

Dallas Restaurant & Bar– Affordable Atas dining!

Frequent visitors to Suntec City over the last decade or so would probably have remembered its rooftop garden, good for taking a respite after hours of toting heavy shopping bags, and a vantage point for viewing the Fountain of Wealth, but nothing more. Well the rooftop garden has undergone a massive makeover to become the Suntec City Sky Garden, boasting numerous spacious new restaurants featuring roof to floor glass walls. It feels as if you’re dining al-fresco, but in the comfort of air-conditioning.

Dallas Restaurant & Bar - (7)

I had the opportunity to dine at Dallas Restaurant & Bar a couple of weeks back. The restaurant is housed in an exquisite glass house-style design and is next to an eye-catching shimmering pool feature. An impressive island bar takes centre stage with its gleaming black marble top, ceiling to floor bottle display and slick leather high-chairs.

With a name like Dallas Restaurant, and having already perused the menu prior to arriving, I was expecting a casual, laid-back restaurant and as a result, I walked right past the restaurant! It is the sort of decor you would expect of a restaurant where you would not be ashamed to wine and dine your business clients. Or to have a romantic and quiet time with your other half.

And the best part is, the prices are that of a casual restaurant! Burgers and sandwiches cost about $25 while main courses such as the Roasted Crispy Chicken cost $26 and BBQ barramundi cost $30. Guys, if you’re looking for a posh looking but affordable place to impress your girl, Dallas Restaurant & Bar would be a good choice, just don’t show her the menu prices!

PasarBella Suntec City – What to eat?

Although PasarBella touts itself as a farmer’s market, I don’t really view them as such, as there’s hardly any local produce being sold and it’s mostly eateries instead of a good mix of retail and food. But whatever the name, it’s quite enjoyable going to the PasarBella outlet at The Grand Stand (former Turf City). Guess what, they’ve now opened another outlet at Suntec City so it’s much easier for those without private transportation to get a taste of what PasarBella is like.

PasarBella is located at the ground floor of Tower 1

If you’re familiar with PasarBella at The Grandstand, PasarBella at Suntec City isn’t exactly the same. The PasarBella at Suntec City is much smaller, think 1/3 the size? Also, out of the 13 stalls there, 12 are eateries. In fact, PasarBella at Suntec City strikes me more as a grungy and urban foodcourt with an overdose of graffiti laden walls and neon coloured lighting. Order from any stall that you please, collect your food and sit where you will. It’s a pricey food court though, let’s be upfront with that, be prepared to spend at least $10 for lunch there. And there’s no ubiquitous drinks stall selling canned drinks or mineral water, so that’s another $4 or so for a cup of coffee or $6 for juice.

Still, I’m sure it must be packed on weekdays with office workers looking to have something different to eat, minus the fuss of deciding on a specific restaurant to go to. The food that we tried was quite good (not thinking about the price), and I would definitely like to go back again to sample more stalls.

What to eat at the newly renovated Suntec City?

I had a quick walk around Suntec City after dinner at BreadSociety. Have you been to the basement of Suntec City? It’s totally revamped!!! I must say it looks pretty cool now, and the space is better utilised. The mega Fountain of Wealth is still there but the main difference now is that there are cafes and eateries lining around the Fountain of Wealth, in addition to the original circle of restaurants! So double the number now, with many cafes to choose from! Don’t worry, you won’t get wet from the fountain because the original glass walls are still there.

Most of the cafes and restaurants will be familiar to you (which is a little disappointing because I would have liked to see more new names). The familiar favourites and previous restaurants that are still there include Paradise Inn, Crystal Jade, Ichiban Boshi and Muthu Curry.  Food Republic is now the new food court and sports a very open concept as compared to the previous food court which I thought was a very linear and enclosed thing. Cafes wise you have CoffeeBean Beanstro, Gelare, etc. Pack’d from the Les Amis group is new, and so is BreadTalk Cafe and All Things N’Ice, both by BreadTalk. Together with Food Republic that is also owned by BreadTalk, BreadSociety and ToastBox, it looks like the BreadTalk Group has practically taken up half of the F&B space at Suntec! With their recent grand opening of the BreadTalk Headquarters, they really are going places!

Anyway, enough of talking, and just enjoy the pictures.Oh did I mention that Carrefour is no longer, and Giant is now the supermarket of choice?

BreadSociety – You can get hot meals here too!

You may be familiar with Bread Society as a bakery selling pretty breads and pastries, but did you know that you can also get hot meals at BreadSociety? The latest BreadSociety branch at the newly renovated Suntec City presents a refreshing cafe and boulangerie concept that allows customers to dine in and enjoy the European-inspired freshly baked treats  as well as a menu selection of all-day brunch specials, soups, sandwiches and desserts. I’m not sure about you but for me, the idea of eating a few buns to fill me up as a meal doesn’t cut it. I am a traditionalist and if it’s not a main meal type of dish, I just feel unsatisfied.

I was invited to sample some of their cafe menu dishes. There were some hits and misses but I would definitely recommend the Katsu Sandwich if you’re looking for a filling lunch/dinner option.

Bread Society - Katsu Sandwich $13.80 (Tonkatsu pork loin, shredded cabbage, tonkatsu sauce between dark rye multi-grain toast)

Bread Society – Katsu Sandwich $13.80 (Tonkatsu pork loin, shredded cabbage, tonkatsu sauce between dark rye multi-grain toast)

Everyone agreed that the Katsu sandwich was indeed worth trying out. I love how the whole sandwich tastes so well put together. The lovely tonkatsu sauce with a light mayonnaise base went perfectly with the tonkatsu pork loin, helped along with the nicely crisp thinly shredded  cabbage. I could finish a whole sandwich by myself! There aren’t all that many katsu sandwiches available in Singapore. The only other time I’ve tried some was at Ginza Bairin at JCube. I think I like BreadSociety’s Katsu sandwich even more than the Ginza Bairin one! The meat more or less tastes the same, but it’s the special tonkatsu mayonnaise sauce and the better tasting bread that makes Bread Society’s version a winner. Smile
