Creamy, very earthy and loaded with a variety of mushrooms of different textures! Loved this for how well seasoned it was, how the rice was cooked perfectly and that it wasn’t too heavy. Only gripe was that the portion was much, much smaller than we expected.

There’s Burpple Beyond here, but make sure you call to reserve before dropping by. They’ve also recently swapped to 1 for 1s on a smaller fixed menu.

While the mash was smooth and creamy, it lacked a bit more butteriness. The truffle wasn’t as strong in taste, compared to its aroma.

Was looking forward to this the most but it was very disappointing ☹️ Gnocchi with Gorgonzola cheese, parmigiana reggiano in cream and walnuts. Gnocchi weren’t as light and fluffy as we hoped for and the whole dish was overwhelmed by the stale walnuts.

Was most looking forward to having this schiacciata again! Unfortunately, while the schiacciata had a good crunch, was quite disappointed that it wasn’t as stuffed as we remembered from the last time, hence pretty thin.

Saved this spot for a long time and just got to pop by to try! Went with the set lunch and it was very value for money. Apart from this carbonara, they have 4 others to choose from - Creamy Chicken ($9.90), Puttanesca ($9.90), Arrabiata ($11.90) and Ragu Ala Bolognese ($11.90). Each also comes with a refreshing cup of cold brew earl grey tea infused with lemon and rosemary, originally priced at $5.90.

Tipo serves handmade pasta and you get to pick from 3 daily offerings upon order. I went with the squid ink mafalde. You also get to choose to top up parmesan cheese, chilli flakes and olive oil at no extra costs, unless you want an extra portion of any. I added the first two and enjoyed my plate. Would have just liked the mafalde a touch bit less soft, but the cheesy and creamy sauce coated each strand nicely. The chunky mushrooms came in a satisfying portion as well!

Pasta upsize is at $3, and set lunches are available from 12pm to 4pm on weekdays, excluding PHs.

These were lightly battered and tender.

The Big Breakfast had slices of bacon back, potato, vine tomatoes, egg and baby spinach. Decent pizza, though their crust is more biscuit-y, and I like the chewier and crunchier sort. We came by with a Shopback promo for 1-for-1 pastas and pizzas.

Risotto with seasonal mushrooms and parmesan cheese. A tasty vegetarian option to go for - it wasn’t mushy at all, was creamy, sufficiently cheesy and had a great bite. Enjoyed the variety of mushrooms for both their earthiness and textures.

Went with a béchamel based pizza - topped with mozza, guanciale (Italian cured pork jowl) and egg. The slices of pork jowl had a really nice crisp around its edges and added a nice savoury touch. Found the crust a little too chewy for our liking though, and would have liked it a teeny bit less burnt.

Really enjoyed this Mac & Cheese and we think it’s one of the best ones we’ve had thus far! Though no meats, it came with forest mushrooms, truffle oil, crunchy breadcrumbs and very generous amounts of cheese. It was seasoned well, not overwhelmingly salty, but sufficiently cheesy. It didn’t get too heavy too, so it was actually ok for one to wipe clean!

Bed of mascarpone pearl barley risotto with soy and coriander cured Norwegian salmon fillet, plus sweet peas. Salmon fillet was flaky, moist and very tender, pairing well with the cheesy base. Liked the added ikura and tobiko that gave extra pops of savouriness.

The Carabineros prawns were slightly overcooked, but we slurped down that delightful savoury broth that was done with white wine, garlic, chilli and garlic butter. It was also served with two slices of toasted ciabatta that were good for dipping.
