Burpple Beyond: Our Response to the Upcoming Dine-in Restrictions

This old-school joint is set in an industrial estate in Tampines, but that doesn't certainly doesn't deter the crowds (mostly families) who willingly make the trek down for its honest-to-goodness cooking and reasonable prices. This place is known for Johor-style Bak Kut Teh (from $5.50), characterised by its herbal soup base. However, like some Burpplers, you may be tempted to go for the Cabbage Whole Chicken ($16) instead. The weekend specialty sees a whole kampong chicken cooked in its own broth in a claypot lined with cabbage leaves. The soup is sweet, the chicken is tender and the melt-in-your-mouth cabbage pieces are divine. This alone is enough to pair with white rice, but if you're dining in a larger group, consider adding on the tasty Mongolian Pork Ribs ($10), Assam Fish ($22) or an unusual offering of German Style Pork Knuckle ($22), plus a vegetable dish of your choice.
Avg Price: $15 per person
