T iong Bahru is prov­ing to be more than just a pic­turesque en­clave that hip­ster-types are par­tial to – it’s also a fruit­ful fron­tier for in­no­va­tive fare.

Pre­vi­ously the home of Open Door Pol­icy, 19 Yong Siak Street has a new oc­cu­pant also by the SPA Esprit Group. The Butcher’s Wife per­pet­u­ates the gluten-free legacy of its pre­de­ces­sor, serv­ing up flavour­ful mod­ern Euro­pean cui­sine with de­light­ful mains like its Grilled Oc­to­pus ($28), which won over this writer, to desserts like the re­fresh­ing Pineap­ple Carpac­cio with curry crum­ble on the side ($14).

Look­ing at the long menu, and not for­get­ting, the ex­ten­sive wine list, it is dif­fi­cult to com­pre­hend why more restau­rants don’t ac­com­mo­date coeli­acs. Af­ter all, The Butcher’s Wife fits right in a so­ci­ety that is slowly, but surely, be­ing roused to the ben­e­fits of health­ier food. The Butcher’s Wife is lo­cated at 19 Yong Siak Street.
