We loved the Ravioles de Royans ($18) - Creamy, decadent flavourful bite-sized pasta was al dente, filled with Tete de Moine cheese, and topped with more cheese! Not sure if it might be jelak (tho I think I could’ve easily finished by myself) so it’s probably good to share, amongst so many other yummy food on the menu.

The Tarte flambée ($25), a crispy thin crust pizza with asparagus/ apple/ blue cheese, ham and rocket leaves, were an interesting combination of sweet and savoury! The blue cheese was surprisingly mild.

We really liked the Apple Pie too! The caramelised apples were not too sweet, though it wouldve been nice if the pastry was a little more crisp. We preferred it to the Nun’s puffs which were kinda like doughnuts - a little too doughy for my liking but was not bad when it was piping hot and sweet all thanks to the hazelnut drizzle.

If you happen to be heading there over the next two days, get their Chai Latte! All net proceeds from the chai lattes will be donated to Mercy Relief.

My favourite was the Grilled Avocado with Herbs & Cheese ($15)! Crispy thin layer of cheese for you to roll the soft avocado with sakura ebi for contrasting textures, a tad greasy but I loved it.

Tamagoyaki is something I’ll always go for and the dashimaki tamago ($10) certainly didn’t disappoint. We also had Crab Cream Croquette ($12) and the very plump Mie Prefecture Oysters ($22 for 3 pieces) were so creamy, well-balanced with the accompanying slightly tangy vinaigrette dressing.
Salad options include the Seafood Aburi Salad with Caesar dressing ($13) and Teppan Yakiniku Salad ($15), not a greens-person😛 but they were refreshingly good starters, be it the no-frills torched slices of fish or beef.

Thank you @teppankappoukenji for having us and #burpple for the kind invite!

Most importantly, its distinct characteristic - using seasonal and fresh ingredients. There’s also a counter where you can watch the chef at work!

Our dinner was rather beef-centric (I’m not complaining!). Smoky, while retaining its juiciness, the Wagyu Cubed Steak ($30) was so easy to eat and the accompanying sauce and garlic chips paired really well!

Personally really liked the Gyusuji Tofu ($22), a comforting sweet beef stew with soft tofu but some may find it too sweet. Would’ve loved to eat this with a bowl of rice.

We also had Salad, Gyu katsu ($22) and Stewed Wagyu Hamburg ($15) - flavours were full-on and I loved the vegetables in it! Plenty of choices for the meat lovers here - enjoy 1-for-1 with #BurppleBeyond for Seafood/Agemono/ Meat Steak (only for Premium).

These thick cuts of tuna/ flounder/ yellowtail were so incredibly sweet and fresh, it was a pretty obvious indicator that the rest of our night was gonna be good 😛

Switching it up from their classic lobster roll, the split-top bun is packed with snow and blue swimmer crab shreds in both chili crab/ black pepper crab flavours so the indecisives can get to try both - but of course if you already know what you like, you could always request for a full one-flavour crab bun! Should you go for the halfsies, start with the savoury-sweet chilli crab half before black pepper as the latter is more overwhelming with a bit of spicy kick. I’m not as big a fan of crab as I am of lobster so the lobster roll is still my favourite out of the two. Special mentions to the the crisp chunky fries, and the pairing of refreshing coleslaw served alongside!

The Kopi Chendol, which I absolutely loved works as both a dessert/ thirst quencher. The concoction of 2 espresso shots (but felt like it could do with a stronger taste of coffee) with fresh + coconut milk and gula melaka sourced from Melaka, was not cloying, with a generous amount of pandan jelly and homemade coconut sable so there’s some contrast of textures.
Thank you #burpple for the kind invite and @dgoodcafe for the kind hospitality!

This was surprisingly satisfying to me! Buttered buns wasn’t the best, not exactly crisp, nor fluffy and soft like their original cream bun but overall wasn’t too dry thanks to the appetizing sweet/sour sauce & homemade tartar. Fried chicken was very crispy and juicy without much greasiness and the vegetables also helped to cut through any signs of it. I liked how the sliced tomato and generous amount of refreshingly crunchy cabbage didn’t make the bun soggy + was very thinly shredded so I don’t feel like a bunny.

Truffle fries were essentially fries (remained crispy for quite awhile) with truffle-infused mayo dip. Could do with more truffle.

Pretty good western food here!

Got the mixed grill of chicken chop + pork chop which set us back by $8.50. Having had too many dry, tough pork chops, the one here was pretty well executed and took me by surprise - tender and juicy. So was the chicken! Both were well-seasoned without any excessive saltiness, a problem I have with many western food from kopitiams🤷🏻‍♀️, and nicely grilled. Served with toast, fries and baked beans guaranteed to fill you up.

Not one to go for mala and subject myself to the numbing spiciness, but this is one that I probably wouldn't mind coming back to. The numbing creeps up slowly, and so does the heat (got the medium spiciness) which was surprisingly acceptable; so it might not be enough for people who love spicy food. Left it all to our mala queen @cweizhi who picked the ingredients well too! I loved the freshness of ingredients here with the crunchy lotus roots, tender pork slices, and how it wasn't overly salty.

The perpetual queue may be daunting but worth it.

Not only is it affordable with most desserts going for $2, they're tasty, pretty generous with the ingredients and simply heaven-sent with the sweltering weather - thank goodness for this dessert shop during our journey to the west yesterday!

If you like to rainbow-anything, get their mango/ durian ice kachang. At least it's guaranteed to satisfy. I usually shy away from this and go for chendol instead, but surprisingly I preferred the ice kachang here. Every part was generously covered with the fruity mango/ durian (didnt taste too artificial to me!) and syrup without that cloying sweetness, and I loved digging for all the ingredients within the heap of ice.

Fret not as it is helmed by Chef Tomita has over 30 years of experience, and the torafugu used goes through careful preparation and stringent checks.
Set meals offered here starts from 5 to 9-courses at $88 / $100 / $138 / $168, which allows one to try the torafugu and snow crab in different ways - sashimi, grilled, deep-fried, boiled; or you can just go for the ala-carte menu just to get started.

I enjoyed every dish here - especially the snowcrab sashimi and very comforting hotpot with porridge. Nothing too complex, using minimal seasoning or only simple dips so you still get to taste the natural sweetness and freshness that shines through.
Thank you @cweizhi for extending the invite!😊
