Beast & Butterflies is a social space inspired by influence of East and West. Strategically located in M Social Singapore, it sits by the bank of the Singapore River in Robertson Quay. A peek at the Robertson Quay Beast & Butterflies would reveal an artistic setting.

Dishes seamlessly meld influences from East and West, showcasing a style of border-less cuisine or “food for all”.

We had the Simply Scallop ($24) to start the lunch with. The Hokkaido scallops sliced carpaccio-style are refreshing and make one feeling light-hearted. It is accompanied with Japanese yuzu and ginger marinade, and topped with fragrant shallot oil.
The salad that we ordered to start our meal is called Crabs and Leaves ($22). Though not the salad of salads, the dish has amazingly fresh Alaskan crab and the perfect serving amount for 2 to 3 to share.
My favourite dish of the afternoon would be the Mee Tai Bak Laksa ($16). Well… not just because it relates to my personality but because the thick and spicy gravy added a layer of excitement to the dish. The dish was also smartly dress with loads of ingredients, it is impossible for us to hold and not to indulge.
We had Chicken & Chorizo ($26), composed of the most tender sous vide chicken breast and sided with mash potato and chorizo sausage croquette. They are very tasty and certainly very good choices for families with kids.
Robertson Quay’s Beast & Butterflies is certainly an amazing new restaurant to explore in Singapore. Every dish created good memories for us. Each of them was dishing out quality ingredients and flavors. Robertson Quay Beast & Butterflies, you had done well for the great food!
