Expected Much More Ordered platter for 2 ($90) which comes with a pickle platter, nashville fries with an add on of yuzu slaw ($4). First of all, why call it yuzu slaw when you can’t taste yuzu? 🤔 And the pickle platter is a joke; with musty jalapenos and soft cucumbers...everything seemed to have been brined by the same mixture. Cornbread was ok but the honey on top .. what is that?? 🤢 Fries was nicely seasoned but i felt like breaking my jaw eating the fries, it was super hard 😠 On the platter, 2 brisket spring rolls were given and it was ok, better with the sauce. Still bearable. 2 small portion of pork belly was a tad too soft and mushy despite the nice seasoning. The alleged favourite of many, the burnt ends pastrami was not bad but quite charred and left and undesirable burnt taste. The buffalo wings was pretty good but nothing to shout about. Onto the major stuff, the brisket was soft. But too soft. The pork ribs was also soft to the point it was appalling to eat it due to the overly soft texture🤮 The flavour was nice though. Moral of the story: don’t bother eating here. May sound harsh but i was expecting quality food. Extremely disappointed after looking forward to eating at one of the best barbecue place in SG but only left with regrets, despite using my Chope vouchers. Sigh...
Homemade Lemon Meringue Tart ($7++) Pretty decent tart (though more slanted towards the mediocre side). Liked that the lemon meringue was not too sweet, with a texture that was foam-like and very light. However, the tart base leaves much to be desired as it was just a dry untasty biscuit 😥😥
Honeycomb & Vanilla Ice Cream ($7++) Nice simple dessert and well worth with burpple’s 1-for-1. Vanilla ice cream had visible specks of vanilla bean but was on the sweeter side, but really did enjoy the honeycomb!! (Which was bitter with just a slight tings of sweetness 🤤🤤) Chocolate fudge was nice cause I’m a personal sucker for choc, but cheapened the whole feel of the sweet treat overall.

🎶It’s getting’ HOT in here, so take off all your clothes~🎶 Dinner with friends = HOT pot time! ✌🏻 Inspired by @eatbooksg who ordered everything on the menu at places like Shake Shake, A&W & The Alley (honestly we were just being gluttons 🐷🐷🐷), we ordered almost everything on the menu of @upinhotpot. 😂 After hours of feasting (& we did a decent job in finishing most of the food, it cost us $50 per pax (for 6 ppl), which I felt was very reasonable! 👌🏻 [NOT SPONSORED!] . We ordered the dual yuan-yang pot with their signature Tomato Soup 🍅 & Butter Soup (essentially Spicy Mala Soup 🌶 with blocks of butter!) for $18++. Honestly speaking, it was extremely intimidating looking at the amount of butter (& dried chillies)  floating atop at the start 😱 - I could already feel my arteries choking up. But as they melted, the fragrance of the butter enhanced the soup base, which became a faint aroma especially after topping up soup. 🥣 . We ploughed through the wide range of food items they offered & was delighted with the variety. 😍😍😍 Meats (prime beef $15 🥩, black pork $12 🐷, pork belly $8, mutton slices $10 🐑) were tender with no gamey taste, mash shrimp paste $12 🦐 was fresh, meatballs (we had cheese beef balls $12, mushroom meatballs $8, handmade pork balls $8, sweet corn pork balls $8) were firm yet bouncy. 💕 . It was Fear Factor (Upin edition) 😱😱😱 with exotic items like Beef tripe ($12) & Swine throat ($12) but these were 2 items that we wouldn’t recommend as they were too tough. 🙅🏻‍♀️ Pig’s Stomach ($10) & pork liver ($6) were alright though! 👌🏻 . Not only was it a gastronomical experience, it was also a cultural one - there was Sze-Chuan 变脸 (face-changing) performance 💯, as well as Dancing Noodles performance, just like at Hai Di Lao. 😊 . Will we return? The answer is Yes! ✔ Mental note: do not over-order next time!
Decent Hotpot Good For Groups Portion here is huge. They do not have half portion so it will be better to come in a group so that you can try more! Pales in comparison to BIAP and Haidilao but overall still decent. Service was good. Allowed us to cancel the dishes after ordering.
Upin Hotpot ($16 For 3 Bases) 🌶 Situated at Clarke Quay Central & Orchard Gateway, Upin Hotpot is a rival of the famous HDL, but in a pocket-friendly way. They have popular soup bases such as mala and tomato soup, which is cooked daily to ensure its freshness and standards. You’d be able to find the typical favourites such as shrimp paste ($12), Fried Beancurd Skin ($6) & the usual meaty suspects, Pork Belly ($8) & US Beef Slices ($12). Portions all come in full sizes as half sizes are not available (yet), but still remains fairly affordable at <$30 a pax, ensuring that you’re filled to the brim.

Le Omm, Raspberry Yuzu ($9++ Per Slice); On Burpplebeyond with Drinks One foot in the glass doors of this beautifully furnished dessert boutique cafe and I knew the longing to visit this place with mum, after a friend introduced their sliced cakes to me at a dinner gathering (at that point in a takeaway box), was not unfounded. The dainty cakes here goes into my category of “nice to admire and nice to fork on”; I personally favoured the Raspberry Yuzu flavor over the Le Omm (Matcha). The refreshingly citrusy moist sponge of the former outshone the pale tasting latter.
decadent desserts Tried Nesuto’s tiramisu ($11.85) the first time I visited, and I’ve come back for this every time since :”-) the mascarpone is light and fluffy, layered with shortbread soaked in coffee & alcohol (a mix of rum, kahlua and marsala wine) and topped with dark chocolate rocks. Nesuto may be a little pricey but its well justified by the quality and portion! Also an incredible deal with burpple beyond (1 for 1 cake + drink).
Chocolate Cake, C3 Cheesecake 3rd time here hahaha seems like a routine where I will have my beef bowl at Rakki followed by desserts at nesuto 😂😂😂 This time round I ordered a different cake > LE’ MMM which is decadent chocolate cake. On first bite, it was heavenly because the top layer was this cold harden chocolate followed by the chocolate sponge and cream. Subsequently, I got abit jelat even tho I was sharing this w a friend. Would highly recommend their c3 cheesecake more !!!! As for the tea, go for their peach oolong instead of their milky oolong.
