UNDERCOVER RESTAURANT REVIEW: The Butcher's Dining is the casually cool mod Korean diner that Singapore needs.

Great Pulled Pork Kimbap, Cutlet By Ex-Meatsmith Chef At Korean Café & Butcher’s Shop

Waitaminute — did we magically land in Seoul despite not having the stomach for travelling during the pandemic? Did we miraculously bypass the mandatory assault on our nasal passages and stumble upon a breezily stylish eatery-cum- butcher’s store and gourmet grocer in Baum-Dong or one of the city’s more affluent neighbourhoods? Nay, we’re very much in Singapore, on Havelock Road, beside Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh.

But we can fantasise, as we wander past the sleek glass doors of The Butcher’s Dining. The month-old establishment is an oasis of contemporary Korean charm amid the sea of greasy K-barbecue joints, teenybopper cafes and unmemorable mom-and-pop places common in Singapore.

For all Singaporeans’ love for Korean pop culture, our country only boasts a handful of fab and cool K-establishments, usually fancier fine-diners like the exceptional Nae:um, Meta, and to a lesser extent, Anju.
