Its hard to find japanese food that doesnt hit the mark. Its always irresistable

This bowl of chicken cold reimen accompanies the BBQ well, refreshingly light on taste and with smooth glass noodles that you can easily slurp up. Especially glad that they split it into portions naturally for the two of us (great service!), and each of them is easily a one man portion on its own. The sprouts are on the raw side but gives it a very green taste 🌱 ($18)

burpple's deal comes with a generous spread of all kinds of meat: tonkatsu, ebi, fried oysters and chicken karaage 🐔🐖🍤🦪. First and foremost, the fried oysters are the bomb, we loved how crispy it is while keeping it naturally juicy and sweet.

Also, you get to pick your meat for the tonkatsu too (there's the trusty pork loins, or you can change to fish, chicken) and we added on cheese

Must say that the tonkatsu and fried fish are both consistently crispy, and coated well with a golden crust. Thumbs up to their rich miso soup as well


Had a feast of some of the freshest, with my favourites going to:

- scallop sushi
- basil cheese salmon sushi
- all time favourite salmon belly sushi
- jumbo prawn sushi (amazingly tender)
- everything aburi!!

Tried also their fatty albacore tuna which was thick and not fishy. For the sushis here, most of the rice stayed firm, but some broke apart while you picked up too. A pity some items we were looking forward to were out of stock e.g. snow crab sushi. Sashimi slabs.

Ps. Do make reservations with their app, so you don't have to wait long.

Pps. Random fact that each sushi can only travel 350m before being discarded.

(About $100 for 4, and we didn't hold back)

The soft shell crab salmon aburi rolls is a simply luxurious treat with the soft shell crab retaining its crunch, and the salmon mentaiko adding a nice finishing touch to it. ($18.90)

Be prepared to queue for about 30 mins for seats here if you're walking in, but the wait is well worth it

for generous and tender Kaisen Chirashi Dons and the Soft-shell Crab Aburi Salmon Roll - their Chirashi is well mastered, with thick slices of Salmon, Tuna, Yellowtail, Swordfish. +++, and also lovely, tender pieces of scallop. Fresh without too much traces of fishiness, each slice melts in your mouth. My only gripe was that the bed of rice was slightly too sticky and mushy. ($22.90/$26.90)

yesss! Their tonkatsu was well done, with a generous portion and a consistent crunch covering the tender meat. Plus, complementary dumplings with every main order now, as a welcome promotion! ($9.90, psa it's on shopback too - it's hard to find this quality and quantity anywhere else at this price!)

Definitely a nice place to hang out outdoors, with the chilly breeze (slightly wish the curry is hotter, a lil more). Will be back to support more of their dishes! 🌞

Remains a comforting place for a good meal, a delicate japanese eatery with a peaceful ambience - we went for the grilled salmon with garlic butter ($15). It is tender and oozing with naturally fragrant oils, and we had it paired with their garlic seafood fried rice ($15). This place definitely mastered how to bring out the best of their garlic and seafoos. Left feeling v contented.

Ps their garlic fried rice is a must have. Wished we had the teppanyaki bar seats but social distancing means there's limitations

Love how they capture the cosy and bustling japanese eatery vibes and even more so for their chirashi don! Served in generous chunks and so fresh (especially love their hotate). We were lured in by the irresistible scorched mentaiko smell, and I highly reco their mentaiko don.

With burpple beyond, you get a main + 2 honeyish teriyaki yakitori + miso soup + green tea ($32 nett)

This truffle garlic barachirashi is one of a kind that makes you go woah from the first bite - especially if you're a big truffle and garlic love like me. The chunky seafood (tuna, salmon, octopus) are topped with a rich truffle sauce, and peppered with garlic chips.

Please note to make a reservation before you go because the queues can get notoriously long. also shout out to their unique drinks with their happy hour - I had the gula melaka matcha milkshake that paired well with this bowl!

This generous slab of unagi nested upon the hidden wobbly egg and rice bed deserves many thumbs up. Particularly love how the unagi is crisp and slightly charred, and when mixed with egg, so delightful. ($15 ala carte with miso soup, or $25 with two Dons using burpple!)

This dish is... certainly unique. Called the Ultimate Egg Rice, it has a foamy whipped egg white with a golden center. Sashimi and avo may not be the freshest - but this dish is worth a try when mixed with soy sauce

$5.80 ultimate egg rice
$3 salmon add on
$1.50 avo add on
~ $10.30 (+gst)

It's beef bowl is indeed smokey, with it being slightly overwhelmed by the teriyaki sauce. The cod fish bowl was good too! A little taken aback by the miso soup with beef essence too. (On burpple one for one! ) Love the veggie ratio here!
