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

The Populus strikes gold a second time with their grain bowl. This limited edition seafood bowl ($22.50) was a work of art and tasted as good as it looked :)

The seafood consisted of roasted cod loin, Japanese scallop and flaky crab meat. It was garnished with ginger, pickled cabbage and cucumber and sat atop some Japanese brown rice with mixed grains (quinoa, bulgar wheat and barley).

It tasted really flavorful and just filling enough. The rice grains were just perfectly cooked with a significant bite to them, without being mushy. The cod was a tad dry but still flaked easily with a fork. The Japanese scallops were my favorite; aburi-ed to perfection, sweet and very flavorful. And the vegetables were a delicious medley of crunchy and soft, sweet and sour.

My dining partner was very impressed by this cafe indeed. As was I.
