From the Burpple community

There are so many things to love about this place! The service was great, food and drinks came quickly. The cereal prawn burger was SO GOOD. We also tried their cocktails, Honey pot and All’s Well End’s Well (so worth it during happy hour!), and cute that the staff shared the drinks’ little stories/descriptions when they were served.

Delicious and tender back ribs that fall off the ribs cleanly and easily once you cut. Love the achar too, especially when paired with the prawn crackers. Also had cocktails - the cheng teng one was strong, the orh nee one will auto refill as the ice melts, and the milo one was my favourite.

We went for dinner and sat outside as the indoor seems very small. The outdoor area was rather dark and hot though there were fans.

🦞🫕Lobster bisque - I would except the color to be more orangey but it turned out abit pale and not tasty and it was served lukewarm ⭐️1/10

🦑Calamari Rings ($12) - took me by surprised.. thr rings were huge and Crispy ⭐️8/10

🐏Baba lamb ribs ($27) - nice but slightly salty for me ⭐️7/10

🦆Roast duck pizza ($24) - best dish for me 😋 ⭐️9/10

Mid autumn delight ($22) - for people who likes sweet drinks. I kena like it! ⭐️6/10

Overall I enjoyed myself and will come back again :)

Ordered medium rare but the steak doneness was not so even. Some parts were so cooked it was almost medium well. But taste wise was flavourful, with a good seasoning of pepper and salt. Mushroom went well with the steak too.

Dramatic presentation with an old school cigarette + hickory smoke, this was definitely one of the instagrammable drinks available in house. It's a lil too strong and bitter for my liking, but the fiance loved it v much. Accordingly, it's a tribute to the pot smoking ancestors who poured their blood, sweat and tears into the building of our nation. hmms. For one who prefers fruity notes in my alcoholic drinks, I can only say that the intensity of this cocktail brought me sweat and tears...

Food wise: 5 stars. Service wise, 1?
Commendable simmered beef - with rather pronounced taste of guinness in every bite of beef cheek. The veal jus was very savoury! Served with carrot bits and potato - bland carbs that were turned flavourful because of the jus. The garlic baguette was another amazing condiment on the side. This dish is indeed rich and gratifying as the menu puts it, but wouldnt exactly say it's satiable due to its puny portion size. It's rather steep and small-portioned for the $26++ price tag - be sure to utilize burpple deal to make your money worth.

Food aside- FYI on the service:
Waited 45mins for this pathetically small-portioned beef Bourguignon. Definitely insufficient to feed a growing teenager or grown adult. Service was exceptionally slow and unexpectedly disappointing.
