Sundays

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 (':

When a Japanese restaurant serves unabashedly thick slices of sashimi, you know they are confident about their produce.
That is exactly what you find at Ten Sushi; in addition, mind you that you get 1 for 1 with Burpplebeyond for ala carte, non-assorted sashimi orders.
The salmon, salmon belly and tuna we had, were approved by my sashimi loving family and we have definitely bookmarked Ten Sushi and Marusuya outlets to satiate future Sashimi cravings.

A recent lunch I had with a friend who recently subscribed to burpple mentioned that some establishments can be found on eatigo or other food platforms “and you don’t pay for those...” he commented. But I quickly raised that there are those places that you’d hardly get any sorts of discounts at but burpple and South Union Park (SUP) is a prime example.
I’ve been here twice for brunch then dinner and was only very impressed on the first visit; dinner here fell short of expectations with an underwhelming baby back ribs main we had. But with Burpplebeyond I was determined to return and sooner than expected I found myself revelling in what I first fell in love with; SUP’s chicken liver pate. Shortly after everything I’d wished for on plate: poached salmon that had not one trace of what I always feared in slabs of fish, sapless poor textured white meat. The fish sad on a bed of spinach and zucchini swimming in a shallow pool of sorrel cream that I polished off the plate.
Another note: SUP hand makes their pastas which means you definitely should try them because handmade wet pastas are quite recherché at least in my sphere of the SG F&B scene.
Lastly, the fish and chips here employs a barramundi fillet as opposed to common dory/ sea bass fillets; this along side an in house coleslaw with red cabbage, a testimony to SUP’s emphasis on using good quality ingredients, something I look for in every menu earnestly crafted by chefs.

My 2nd visit to introduce the delicious pizzas here to my extended family. An amazing “good for groups” option, I beamed pridefully when across the table everyone nodded in approval of how these pizzas were a mark above many other commercial pizza places. I’d like to think it just brings me great joy (and pride) when my loved ones enjoy good food (I suggested) together. 🙊

The pizzas at Chef Icon redefined the stereotypical view that pizzas are “junk food” because what we get is a vegetarian and clean tasting rendition of the Italian staple. While this tasted nothing like the usual Italian/ American pizzas, the unique bread like base with a pastry like crisp crust was noteworthy.
The toppings of mild cheese, curry powder, a soy based vegetarian ham and healthy fresh tomato chunks were contributions to the clean character of this 6-inch pizza.

My to go flavor at Mr Bean found its sibling in a wholemeal, healthier choice version.
Sadly the batter on its own, because Mr Bean pancakes are thick, was slightly unpalatable imho.
Sticking to the usual batter I am familiar to, healthier choice or not.

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

My general reaction was “oh no I only have 2 pizza/pasta vouchers and we’ve used them all up”.... because I really want to come back for more!
Another burpplebeyond win right here- those good looking pizzas didn’t just looked the part they were way better than average pizzas, with some well baked crisp crust that no one on the dining table left over. The pastas here were also good for a commercial joint which further brings me to my point.... I need more vouchers hahahah 😂

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.

Eat to live, live to eat. Alternating between the 2 all day err day?
