I think if we ordered this burger with beef, it will be good but again my friends don't take beef so we had to choose chicken. Again its too salty for us. Gosh!. What a letdown..

My friends ordered this mac & cheese burger as we really love mac & cheese but on a chicken patty (friends don't take beef). OMG! It was way too salty!! The patty was all right.. am not really a fan of chicken patty when it comes to burger..give me beef anytime! The bun was good though cruchy outside and soft inside. Fries were crisp even after a while.

I think my burger was called sugar and everything (something like that). I chose wagyu as the patty, it was juicy but was hinder by the jam. I wish they didn't overcooked the egg! I was expecting the yolk to run the down the burger..sigh. Overall it was Good! Onion rings were good but I wished it was less oily. The batter soaked up lots of oil

I had the spicy tendon set. It came with a very normal udon and the star aka Spicy sauce Tendon. I read a review of a food blogger saying the sauce is spicy even for S'pore standard which is so not true though i would say the sauce is too salty. Surprisingly the chicken breast is still very tender and juicy even after all the frying. The rest of the items like the prawns, pumpkin, mushroom, long beans are pretty expected. Waited for about 30mins as the eatery has only a few seats. I still prefer Tendon Ginza Itsuki even though it has bad ventilation, their tempura taste "fresher" and it has that onsen egg- a big plus!

Usually specialized bbq/grill meat places do not have great desserts plus am not a sweet tooth person but surprisingly they do a great chocolate lava with smoked vanilla ice cream. Yes the ice cream has a smoky smell and taste.. we can taste hints of bacon. I was afraid that the cake would be overly sweet but to our amazement, they used dark chocolate hence the sweetness was just right for our palate and the "lava" really oozed out! Great choice my friend!

Sides: "Dirty" fried rice aka fried rice with chicken liver and chicken bits. This was such a chinese dish! Pit has that "wok-hei" a fried rice should have..definitely a must order.
Mac & cheese: a letdown..i would pass it of as a dried cream pasta. The cheese was way too little to declare it as mac & cheese!

Mains: i love the beef brisket! It was so tender, so succulent and oh so juicy!! I can even taste a hint of that milky flavor.
We ordered the dry rub pork ribs and they even gave us their house bbq sauce on the side. It wasn't as tender as i expected but still it was easily tore off the bone and i like it that i can gnawed on the bone. The seasoning was just right, not too salty and the bbq sauce was also just right.

Starters: Fried chicken bao! Its not a bad combi but the battermix was a tad too salty. The beef bone marrow was just so-so.. too oily for me though.
Skip the pork crackling, its just crispy and has that strong porky smell. The apple cinnamon puree which was at placed at the bottom though kinda camouflage the smell but it just an odd combi.

Just try the tacos and beef steak. Do order medium rare, its really tender and juicy.. best dish on the menu. Skip the buffalo wings, salt is free here till you can't taste the chicken. Brownie is not bad too but as usual its overly sweet.
It's a place to chill though.

A first! Soft serve with waffles!! We ordered salted gula melaka with gula melaka mochi and the earl grey lavender with biscuits. Both soft serves are rich and creamy however they are too sweet (if only the hold the sugar just a slight and it will be perfect). Waffles are good! Crisp on the outside and soft inside and its still warm! Sadly the condiments we ordered are quite a letdown; No gula melaka taste or smell in the gula melaka mochi.. disappointing.. Next time i will try the chocolate or if they have plain waffles that will be so good! Just hold the sugar!

The coffee is good. We ordered decaff since i can't take coffee but just want a sip. The fish and chips is not bad; crispy outside and moist inside but my friend said its alittle fishy. Pork belly is not bad too. Roast chicken is tender but on the salty side. Desserts are way too sweet for my liking, even for my friend who loves desserts commented that it was too sweet. The food comes in very small portion and in 3s so if you have more than 3 persons, you have to order another portion. We had to order a few extra dishes since we weren't full and their dinner menu is limited. For that kind price, its not really worth going again though i read their sunday brunch is good..maybe just maybe will try it. Coffee drinkers will like this place.
