Even if you are not the butcher’s wife, you are welcome to come down to indulge in The Wife’s Feast.

The all-new lunch set at The Butcher’s Wife champions a hearty blend of South American flavours with a Southeast Asian touch. Even better, it caters to gluten-free diners without compromising on taste, texture and flavour.

Main feast of signature flavour explosions

Not only was it a feast for the wife, but also a feast for the eyes. Presented with a colourful smorgasbord of dishes, we started with the Wagyu Churrasco, an appetising taco-like bite that set the tone for the meal. The wagyu picanha skewer was incredibly juicy and its heavier flavour profile paired perfectly with light and refreshing romaine lettuce, fermented mustard seed, cucumber, carrot and chimichurri.

As seafood enthusiasts, we were delighted by the Prawn Vatapa – butterflied prawn topped with crab meat and dried shrimp vatapa, accompanied by a tangy wing bean salad. The vatapa added a creamy and umami layer, though the prawn could have been more fresh and snappy.

Tingling our tastebuds further, the Grilled Chicken Wings showcased more complex cooking techniques than expected. It offered anchiote-lemongrass glaze barbecue wings, deboned and stuffed with chicken meat, along with fermented papaya slaw on the side.

The Vegetable Moqueca took centre stage next — a Brazilian stew of banana blossom, pumpkin, mushroom and tofu. Having this was akin to receiving a comforting, warm hug, and the pumpkin contributed to a desirable level of sweetness to balance out all the other flavours. A serving of Garlic Brown Rice was the perfect complement to this fragrant delight.

Round up the flavours

To conclude the feast on a sweet note, the Mousse de Maracuja was a passionfruit mousse topped with mango-kaffir lime sorbet. By adding a touch of brightness and tang to the palette, it kept things light and refreshing to echo the first dish.

Enhance the experience further with a glass of natural wine, of which we tasted the Orange and Red. The former promised balanced notes of honey and orange peel, and we are not exaggerating when we say we have never tasted any wine like this before. The latter bodied hints of black cherry, cranberry and sandalwood.

The Wife’s Feast is available at $38 per pax, minimum two pax, from Tuesdays to Fridays from 12pm to 3:30pm. Add-ons for Mousse de Maracuja at $10 per pax and a glass of natural wine at $12.
