Overall enjoyable and well-executed for a burger from a non-specialty place - 2 small soft shell crabs, a runny yolk sunny side up, caramelised onions and generous pepperings of furikake, sandwiched between buttered brioche buns. The soft shell crabs were crisp but not over-fried.

It’s pricey for the portion but the quality is good!

I think this cookie has a cult following LOL so it’s reputation precedes it. Cookie preferences are quite idiosyncratic, so I’m just gonna describe the cookie (after a 3 min heat up and some cooling time for it to crisp up).

It’s a hefty, chewy-type cookie with crisp tops and edges. The thickness in the middle means that the insides are quite underbaked, so if you’re squirmish about raw cookie dough, this might not be for you (note however that chewy/soft textures usually are only achievable through slight under-baking). I wouldn’t clearly call it a chewy cookie, but it’s definitely not cakey (like ben’s cookies).

The quality of the ingredients are ok but not particularly high, and I would have preferred cookie butter to the dulce de leche they used for the centre of the cookie. Enjoyable indulgence, but abit too pricey. I personally don’t need that extra lotus biscuit and a half on top, but I get that it’s a presentation thing.

I actually expected ricotta curds based on the dish name so I was surprised that it more closely resembled a dip. Nonetheless I really enjoyed the creamy, sweetish dip with the lightly toasted ciabatta. The drizzle of olive oil (over the toasts), in concert with the yogurt-like dip, reminded me abit of the likes of Greek/Mediterranean-type cuisines

I love burpple beyond!!!! This beautiful sous vide turkey sandwich is so worth it with the app!! And it’s huge so I ate it over 2 meals. The turkey is unbelievably tender and juicy and the bacon adds a flavour punch. Such a good sandwich I can’t stop raving about it.

Really wanted to like and support this place cause they’re always so empty but I’m sad to say that this wasn’t good :(

The set is comes with a soup + salad + sandwich + drink. The french onion soup and iced lemon tea were pretty standard, not good but not terrible. The salad was a few of leaves topped with a ready-made sauce squeeze from a tube. But the sandwich though - baguette that was likely to be frozen and thawed in the fridge (it wasn’t even reheated) and 2 slices of super dry roast beef. :( wish cafes would take more pride in the food they served!!

The set is SO worth it!! Only available at around 2pm onwards tho I think. The ondeh ondeh cake was not bad, though it was nothing special - the cake layers could be fluffier and more moist. And they offer gryphon tea!!

This was pretty good!! The sweet potato flavour is reminiscent of roasted, caramelised sweet potato. I don’t usually get sweet potato flavour stuff so I’m not sure if they usually taste like that - not savoury and pleasantly sweet. Overall a really balanced drink, the sweet potato goes well with the cashew nut milk.

My first time trying this legendary mochi donut and I LOVE IT!!! If u’re into mochi, there’s not much far wrong you can go with ordering this. Chewy and crisp and sweet 🤤 the flavour of the soft serve is not bad, tho I don’t feel like there was a distinct cream cracker taste.

Was SO excited to chance upon this place because it’s so rare to see non dairy drink options at such affordable prices!! The tea latte is amazing, the homemade cashew milk was so creamy and the flavours were perfectly balanced. 10/10 would recommend and I see myself coming here very often :)

Had pretty high expectations but I felt like the pancakes could be a lot fluffier. They were a little dense so I realised most tables couldn’t finish their stack. The chocolate melts when you pour maple butter over it tho so that was really nice.

The fried chicken was really good!! The batter was so tasty and the chicken was really tender and juicy. The waffles were underwhelming though - not particularly crisp or fluffy.

This bagel is topped with a spring onion schmear and smoked salmon, and finished off with capers. They were generous with the smoked salmon but if I’m being critical, it’s just the smoked salmon you can buy from ntuc, nothjng wrong with that just nothing to shout about. The real issue is with the bagel itself - I know they’re supposed to have a chew but these were a little too hard. I expected more from a bagel specialty shop.

I love food and I give honest reviews!! Check out my Instagram @dugongeats for more 😋
