Ribbery and Wine Co.
Get your ribs fix here; choose from pork ribs, beef ribs, lamb ribs (from $20), as well as other items like hot wings ($10) and sticky date brownies ($12). Old World and New World wines (from $30 per bottle) are also available.
The buzz: There’s a new ribs specialist in the Bukit Timah area, and this one doubles up as a bottle shop.
The vibe: It’s a super casual, family-friendly joint that caters to the neighborhood’s residents. With a TV mounted high up in a corner of the eatery, the first floor feels homely, while the second floor has more of a restaurant feel. If you walk around the place, you’ll notice chalk-scribbled charts on the walls to help you choose your wine according to its heaviness.
The food: On offer are 12 variants of pork, lamb and beef ribs, such as BBQ pork ribs ($20), sherry stewed lamb ribs ($32) and braised beef ribs ($32). Bibs and wet wipes are provided so feel free to use those fingers. Ribs-free options like mac and cheese ($18) and light bites like honey fried cheese ($15) and Louisiana hot wings ($10) are also available.
The drinks: Founder Wong Yin How also runs the Vintry group, so this is one place that takes its drinks seriously. The wine selection consists of over 200 New World and Old World labels, with prices starting as low as $30 per bottle, while house pours are priced at $9. You can also choose from a range of other drinks, like coffee cocktails (from $14). Don’t forget to ask about the daily special; each day of the week there’s a different drinks promo, like Friday’s “Whiskey Night”, with 20 percent off all whiskey bottles.
Why you’ll be back: You can’t possibly try all 12 types of ribs in one visit, can you?
