I run the MBS loop once in a while, & I've noticed this black & orange food truck fairly often on my evening runs. Naturally, I was very excited when Burpple's invitation to taste The Goodburger came in.

Fun Fact: Not all impossibleβ„’ burgers are the same. The "base" Impossibleβ„’ meat is the same, but each place has control over what they mix in with it to create their dishes. Fortunately, the ones I've tried so far are delicious & had great texture, so I had high hopes for these burgers.

Their food truck shuttles between Bayfront Link next to Marina Bay Sands (near where the light show/Black Tap is) for weekday dinners, & The Promontory during lunch all week. They're closed on Mondays & may be elsewhere for special events, so check their Instagram/Facebook for the latest updates 😁

Stay tuned for reviews - thanks Ken & Sophia for the hospitality, & Burpple for the invite! πŸ’•

The Mushroom Aglio Olio ($14++), on the other hand, is strikingly different as it is a warm capellini dish. A good vegetarian-friendly option, I wasn't too bothered that this dish doesn't have meat or seafood in it.

Most importantly, dang that flavour. It punches you right in the face! Chilli padi BAM. Finely chopped garlic BOOM. Earthy mushrooms YAS.

The pastas here look simple, but are good. Both are very different, so take your pick based on your taste/preference/mood.

The Cold Truffle Somen with Hotate & Caviar ($16++) was such a delight to slurp at the end of our meal... Not just because it's cold & smooth. The light truffle flavour proved to be sooo refreshing on the palate. Very welcomed after an evening of varied specialty cocktails, taste explosion appetizers & crazy flavourful skewers.

The cold slices of scallop were of a nice thickness to lovingly sandwich between your tongue & the roof of your mouth... Before comfortably sinking your teeth into them, thereafter letting out a breathy "ahhh." πŸ˜‚

The Cartilage ($2.80++) was interesting - nice & crunchy, a texture that I was intrigued by & appreciated. Something I haven't had before, actually. But it was unfortunately too heavily salted with the combination & heavy-handedness of both sea salt & togarashi.

Gave feedback about this & they took it into account. I would hope they've fixed this since then. It's always nice to speak to chefs/owners/staff that are open to feedback.

If the price of the Wagyu Beef is too premium for you, consider ordering the Chicken Thigh ($2.80++) or Sweetpork ($2.80++); they too are hella juicy 😍 My preference of the two is the sweetpork as it has a sauce of Thai spices & honey, & is a pleasantly tender sweet one to indulge in.

What better way to pair your evening drink with some skewers to munch on. Good variety of >30 options here, with the Wagyu Beef ($6.80++) being my favourite.

Soft & tender, you can taste the natural juices & flavours of the beef. The fattiness absolutely melts in your mouth... Very shiok.

Le Coq is a Burpple Beyond partner - so you can get 1-for-1 lunch or dinner mains here. They have a fairly large menu that you can order from. Perfect for the office crowd, their drinks menu includes beer, wine, hard liquor & house cocktails. In this collage, you'll see some of their cocktail concoctions that we sipped on through the night!

Happy Hour runs daily from 5 - 9PM, giving you a single glass of Grant's Triple Wood Blended Scotch Whiskey or Hendrick's Gin for $X at X PM, where X = 5, 6 or 7. At 8pm, it's $10 a glass which is still okay, but the earlier the better fo' sho. Also, Ladies Night is every Wednesday 😍

Le Coq's California Maki Dip with Crisps ($12++) was surprisingly popular; I attribute that to how refreshing & clean it is. It's essentially a deconstructed California maki roll. Sounds simple, tastes great.

The crabmeat used is fresh & flavourful, tossed together with avocado, mayonnaise & crunchy fish roe. IMHO, though, what makes this super addictive is the thin rice paper crisps on the side. Use them to scoop up the dip & comfortably crunch away. That's pretty dang unique to me.

Folks who want to take the heat up a notch will enjoy Le Coq's Mala Chicken ($10++) appetizer. It isn't too wild, but it certainly has the numbness & spiciness that one seeks in Mala, I suppose?

I'm not a Mala expert, nor do I eat spicy food regularly. But I found myself picking slices from this silky smooth appetizer to pop into my mouth for that shiok feeling 😍

Served on a plate of 3, Le Coq's Uni on Toast ($15++) got me all hot & bothered. Firstly, look at the size of that hunky sea urchin. Secondly, that bread is actually a bed I want to sleep on. Pillowy soft, yet slightly crispy on the outside so it doesn't get soggy.

Loved the textures & flavours of this one. I was left dreaming about this for days.

Hard to believe these Fresh Oysters are only $2.50++ a pop. These New Zealand babies are creamy & decadent. Have them your way - with a squeeze of lemon or a dash of tabasco sauce. Or without anything at all; yes, they are that fresh.

At $16++ for a half dozen, $30++ for a dozen, that's pretty dang affordable for the good stuff.

For those who aren't about the creamy life, try the Italian Torta Di Limone ($13++), a lemon tart with strawberry ice cream. In theory this sounds like it'd be hella sour - but no! It was actually quite a balanced dessert.

The lemon flavour was slightly tart (as in, sour) indeed, but the slight sweetness of the tart base & strawberry ice cream made it more pleasant. I recommend having a bit of each on your fork/spoon each mouthful.

Thanks Casey for hosting us at Trapizza! πŸ’•
