RESTAURANT REVIEW: THE BUTCHER'S WIFE - GLUTEN FREE IN SINGAPORE
Updated: Apr 23, 2020
When our beloved dairy-free and gluten-free Tiong Bahru eatery shuttered its doors, we were relieved to see The Butchers Wife quickly pop up in its place, offering peace of mind for those of us with celiac disease or gluten intolerances. The warm, homey environs with its open kitchen and wooden tables are reflective of the hearty, bistro-style fare, and as such it's become a mainstay in our weekend brunching routine.

The entire menu is free of wheat and gluten, with dishes indulgent enough to please even the most skeptical of foodies. Made with bean, potato and chickpea flour, the warm Focaccia with caramelised onions and tomatoes is moreish to the max, such a pleasant surprise after enduring so many gf bread fails around Singapore. The pancakes fooled a friend who didn't even notice the entire menu was gf, and whilst we're savoury people when it comes to brunch, we found our forks wandering over more than once to sample the goods.
We're also big fans of the Full Breakfast, which consists of organic eggs in any style, lamb sausage, sweet potato rosti, grilled mushrooms, ham and brioche gluten free bread as well as the Organic Poached Eggs with House Cured Salmon. Don't miss the decadent warm chocolate cake.
The restaurant is helmed by Chef Diego Jacquet from Argentinian restaurant Bochinche, so you can expect to see some pretty serious carnivorous options on the menu.
