Naughty Nuri’s, Singapore…pigs needn’t die for this dish

One of the most anticipated openings this year in Singapore, Naughty Nuri crashed and burned right out of the gate.

Naughty Nuri’s signature ribs were a whole of impressive-looking but dull tasting, not-even-warm and indistinct ribs. For me, pork ribs should have an exterior that’s caramelised and a little firm, giving way to a smoky, tender and moderately moist interior. The indistinguishable ribs served here should have been saved for someone’s pet dog. Pigs needn’t die for this dish. The saving grace is that the subtly spiced beef rending – slowed cooked short ribs in coconut milk – is really delightful.The falling-apart-tender meat and the thick, rich sauce was a heady combination.

Naughty Nuri’s calling card is, after all, the half rack and full rack sticky ribs. I don’t care for that and neither should you. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
