Buttergrill @ Tanjong Pagar, Singapore

April 15, 2016

Buttergrill has a brilliant hook, promising recipes paired with an inventive variety of butters, infused with the likes of foie gras, spicy salted egg yolk, red wine & figs, orange ginger, lemon chilli, mustard or spicy miso. We tried the first three - there turned out to be a disconnect between what we expected (creamy, luscious butter, with nuanced flavours) & the reality (melted butter that would be better described as butter sauces, all unctuously oily & not quite coalescing with their additives). The butter proved a distraction for dishes like the spaghettini with grilled portobello & white truffle paste ($20; too cloying to finish), Vietnamese king prawns ($36 with a choice of one butter; costly for rudimentary prawns) & Canadian Primrose Farm bone-in pork chop ($30 for 300 grammes with one butter; our favourite of the bunch, a potently fleshy-fatty sacrament of succulence).
