Sundays

My typical Sunday goes like this light breakfast > church service > lunch > a whole family day > dinner... Pretty normal except I have the best family that likes to eat.... A lot so sundays become our good food day and in this space I'd like to share the good stuff we have (':

My palate wants what it wants especially when I am sick. May be just me but I craved for random things after inhaling so many pills over a span of a week. The above was one on the list and Dad took effort to drive me to his favourite place for it at Parkway.
The protocol here is to choose a slab of fish charged per gram and they’d slice it up for you. Dad thinks they serve one of the fresher sashimi around; while I don’t have these often, I had my fill and was satisfied after I finished almost 2/3 the plate

[哇烤 Skewer Bar] Recent yakitori experience #2

Was convinced to give the place a shot when I witness the Chef painstakingly cooking these precious skewers on a hot grill.
Beaming with approval, the succulent chicken thigh skewer could almost pass off as foie gras for 5 seconds - that flavour and tenderness was applaudable. Then the well textured duck meat ball; whatever went into the meat ball mixture produced some beautifully handmade ones.
There is an option of a mix and match set with 7 skewers or fixed set of 8 items (skewers and sides) for $13; both of which I will be back for. Maybe with an order from the neighbouring burning oak for comparison sake? 😬🙊

P.s: how could I forget that non descript lookin balachan that packed a punch

Another I love burpplebeyond moment when we stumbled upon Alvin’s on the app and were treated to better than usual thin base pizza with a chewy crust towards the circumference.
Our chosen accompanying mains of lasagne (not pictured) was less well received with minimal minced meat, a tad too salty tomato paste and thick, slight cluttered pasta sheets. Sure bias toward the pizzas, the next time we visit ✨

Quite a traumatising dining experience when we waited 1.5 hours for a table on a Friday night (my fault since I didn’t make a reservation). These dumplings were interesting (I mean a curry puff tasting dumpling - think stuffed with warm potatoes for example) but not something I’d wait 1.5 hours for though.
That said I believe the place is a great marketing success, the food concept is novel and enough for millennials to appreciate (the whole population there that night had an average age of mine); so a visit and maybe just one is warranted.

Birthday meal means I can choose exactly where I wanted to dine ✨ I don’t think I’ll ever forget Mizuno okonomiyaki in Osaka so trying to find any close semblance of that experience in Singapore has always been at the back of my mind.
While I found the Okonomiyaki here good, Mizuno is of course in a league of its own for now. I’d suggest skipping the seafood platter and just coming for their yakisoba and okinomiyaki.
I’d be back for the soufflé pancakes and another thank you burpple moment for I would not have known of this place without my trusty pink App.

I was impressed with this seafood broth maybe because of a lack of expectations I would admit.
A helpful slit through the sweet prawn made it easy to de shell and delightfully taste; besides a prawn you get clams, mussels and a few slices of fish in this delicious umami stock. My favourite part was definitely mopping the broth clean with the bread slices.
Another good meal with burpplebeyond!

On my slew of burpplebeyond redemptions; there were hits and misses. Then for the pizza above I’d say they fall right in the middle- as comforting wood brick oven pizza. Not the best pizza there is out there but yet of a certain standard you’d return for. One indicator was the ease in finishing the thin oven baked crust, quite good I must say. However on my return visit I’d opt for other pizza flavours as the Pizza al Quattro Formaggi above felt like a slight overkill with its cheese and white sauce.
As for the pastas here they are cooked al dente unless otherwise requested, in good sauces like the crab Capellini al Granchio we got.

Might have to wait for the service here- but good Mediterranean food that’s worth it with burpplebeyond. I especially loved the salty and tasty pistachio lamb kebab that had deboned and slightly minced lamb meat. The grilled halloumi was plump with an interesting hint of rosemary flakes as pictured.
Pita bread here is interestingly thin and slightly addictive too because we managed to finish our basket of pita and the ones hiding under our mains.

This installation of Burpplebeyond was guided by tastermaker Jason Wong suggestion that one check out the Communal Place helmed by a Chef who used to intern at a famed Michelin star Chef restaurant.
First it was my mum and I trying out the miso salmon and chicken roulade. Then just dinner the next day was our family of 5 trying out an assortment of other dishes.
The menu here is not overtly extensive but just right. What mattered was how each item we tried were well executed with some outstanding ones. For the latter category, the beef ragout, miso salmon and fish and chips are worth travelling for.

A shout out component that resurfaced in many items was the smooth and quite iconic mash purée here at the Communal Place.
Also if your dining companions are like my family with big appetites, the truffle fries here sets you up for some luxurious carb loading at good value.
