59 Hutong Yakiniku has A5 Wagyu beef at Boat Quay
When it comes to writing about good meat, there’s a tendency for writers—myself included—to fall back on expressions such as “melt in the mouth” or “succulent”. Rarely, however, have I encountered meat that justified them to the extent of what I had at 59 Hutong Yakiniku. If this review sounds exaggerated and overblown at parts, know that it’s because the food was just that good.
Located along Boat Quay, 59 Hutong Yakiniku is a collaboration between local start-up 59 Restaurant and Taipei’s top yakiniku chain, Hutong. Beyond the premium cuts of meat and seafood, the restaurant has a lot going for it: the excellent alcohol, the comfy vibe, and the sights and sounds of the Singapore River. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect there.
