From the Burpple community

Meat was tender and juicy; spice mix on point. The mushroom somen ($6) was a meal on its own - sauce is very flavourful; somen soft and tender.

Vegetables were bursting with flavour. It was very filling; staff very attentive.

Heads up, fans of funky fare! This diner doles out mains with a modern twist on old comforts. Take the Braised Beef Meatballs ($25) served with herb celeriac, wood ear fungus and lemon sauce for a tangy finish! Their Garam Masala Chicken Drumsticks ($24) is reminiscent of tandoori chicken with the fresh spices and herbs. Order the umami house-made Miso Cream ($5 each) to pair with anything on the menu, and don't forget to end your meal with the highly recommended Pandan Pana Cotta ($7).

Juicy meatballs with herby celeriac mash and crispy fried black fungus

Alittle tashi’s grilled lamb ribs ($26++) was probably the least aesthetically pleasant dish that nice, but it was arguably the most delicious dish on the table that night.

Marinated in mint yogurt, these ribs are slow cooked for 6 hours before being plated alongside a serving of pickled beetroot. The result is outstandingly juicy and tremendously tender meat that slides off the bone with its semi gelatinous fat. It’s mildly gamey, not quite enough to be off-putting, and the flavors within are moderate. There’s a nice bit of char, which lends a nice bit of smokiness to these tender ribs.

These lamb ribs might not be the most radical, reality altering ribs in existence, but they’re addictive enough to eliminate the concept of a ‘paiseh’ piece and result in a hunger game over the last luscious lamb rib.

Alittle tashi is built from the ground up on a tapas/sharing plate concept, so the Baked River Prawn ($32++) does raise a whole lotta eyebrows as it seems to be in complete rebellion of said concept.

A colossal river prawn is butterflied right down the middle and baked, and is then draped atop a bed of crispy shiitake garlic rice like one of your sexy French girls. Ginger scallion sauce is then squirted right down the prawn’s crack for a little extra excitement and flavor. It wasn’t as fresh as it should’ve been, but it ain’t all that bad in all honesty.

The crispy shiitake garlic rice would be better off with a more pungent garlic flavor, but other than that, it was pretty decent. Sure, the rice is kinda hard and crunchy rather than soft & fluffy, but they did put ‘crispy’ right there in the menu so you had ample warning of what to expect.

The real reason why I thought this dish was rather weak when considering alittle tashi’s foundational concept of Asian fusion sharing plates was mainly down to that river prawn. It’s large enough to be shared between two, but when you’ve got a ménage a trois or more, that prawn is under equipped for said task. And when you consider the fact that this dish is $32++, it’s real easy to believe that you’ve been cheated. Especially if you don’t use #BurppleBeyond.

Tasty? Yes. Worth it? No. Hotel? Trivago.
