We were glad the Kuhlbarra Barramundi (1st pic) with Truffle pasta ($20.90) fared far better than their Teriyaki Salmon (2nd pic) with Truffle pasta ($10.90) and proved to be at least worth the price difference. The Barramundi was light and fresh where the Salmon had a strong fishy smell and taste.

The Chendol ($5.90) was simple & boring and lacked the strong flavours a good Chendol should have. Perhaps they were looking for a 'Healthier' version 🤔. The Caramelized Goreng Pisang (Banana Fritters) with Vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce ($8.90?) was commented to be hard, with the banana lacking the sweetness banana fritters should have with an attempt to coat the sweetness through the caramel syrup. The ice cream was a basic ice vanilla ice cream with less bean notes.

Lesson to be learnt: Order the Mains, spare the desserts. (Perhaps try their appetizers OR spend those calories on Mr Teh Tarik SG drinks instead!) #Burpple #BurppleSG #tenderfresh #tenderbest #makcikmarket #localfood #SGrestaurants #Halal #foodie #SGfoodie #Burpplereview

Sheikh Haikal knows his burgers I'm guessing! @fatpapas was a treat. The sesame seed buns were soft yet had enough texture to hold the beef patty when knifed. The beef patties were juicy yet held enough to not crumble. Very flavourful. The option of customizing the burgers came as a treat though the optional add-ons were rather pricey ($1 for 5 pickles! Yes, I counted). The sauces offered were plentiful and rather unique (peanut butter and sambal? 🤨🤔) and the overall experience of eating at the diner was pleasant.
The ambience was accommodating and the staff were rather attentive and helpful (no service charge guys!) Which made the whole experience enjoyable. Came in not expecting much and left with a desire to return.

Found myself comparing this to the recent Kava's Coffee burgers... Kava's don't qualify a fight.

Is a Japanese-style pub. This means you'll have alcohol as well as food, but instead of everyone receiving their own main dish, the standard procedure is for everyone to order lots of small, typically inexpensive dishes that are shared by everyone around the table, ordering subsequent rounds along with accompanying drinks.

The grilled meat platter is solid (not literally). And @hararu.izakaya is one of the few places where you can get Halal Beer and Japanese food in SG. Great place to hang with friends after a work day (like the Japanese do) eating and drinking your heart away. Watch out for the smoke from the grill though. It will attract attention from everyone else in the room who's NOT in the mood for smoke.

Keen to be back to try more.

#Throwback to Mother's Day dinner in Ramadhan a day before their Ramadhan menu.

Food was decent, spread was limited and the only thing thoroughly enjoyed was the Sticky Mango Rice and Coconut Soft Serve.

Ok lah... #Burpple #BurppleSG #bluejasmine

Crisp, flaky exterior typical of a croissant with a buttery, chew-worthy interior. Their croissant dough are mixed with mochi (rice cakes) laboriously for hours to produce these large sized treats 😋. The Matcha was a match-ah for me. Rather decent matcha flavour glazed atop the croissant, hid away layers of rich, dark chocolate within.

It proved to be a hit in my buds in comparison to the Lemon Curd, which I found to be too 'curd-y' sour.

They even have Bubble Tea flavours for those adventurous enough or have a fondness for all things bubble tea to try. Outlets are limited and baked sold out early so be sure to get your hands one 1! Or 2... or in this case, a box! They're 👍👍. #Burpple #BurppleSG #brotherbirdbakehouse #mochicroissants

The Sashimi grade salmon had a crisp layer of skin, tender fish meat that was not too under or over cooked and best of all, no fish smell or taste! 😋 The accompanying Crispy Salmon skin was a welcome addition 😍 but it was not as crispy as I expected.

The bed of mashed potato provided a good base as it balanced out the meat with some comforting carbs + charred broccoli was 👍. It was good! #Burpple #BurppleSG #foodie #foodexploration #yishunparkhawkercentre #yishunparkhawkercentre

Sceptical at first, but YOLO - The marination of the chicken thigh in Kopi Gao paid off.
The robust aroma of the kopi whiffed in the air as I took it out from the microwave. Earthy aroma with a full, thick body.

The chicken itself was tender and seemed to melt away in the mouth. The smooth texture of the juicy chicken thigh provided for less chew and complimented the overall flavour of the kopi marinade.

Reminiscent of the Peranakan style of cooking, this Yummy Kopi Chicken would be 1 ☕ in terms of strength, and 2 👍👍 in terms of satisfaction!

I'm a big fan of sandwiches and Roast Beef just echoes out to me. Most roast beef sandwiches however fail to impress with skinny steaks of beef and having a bread > meat ratio. . @thecoffeeshot does really decent sandwiches with crisp breads, right amount of rockets and fair portions of meat.

Coffee is great, place is nice and cosy.
I'm eyeing those cakes. Will return! 😁

Citrus-crusted Barramundi with Paella Rice and Roasted Cauliflower.

Omega-3 in the Barramundi, Nutrients soaked in by the Paella Rice and a dose (need more here!) of Cauliflower fibre.

Opted for citrus-crust and accepted the extra kcals versus the Harissa version. Skipped the sauces and thoroughly enjoyed the Heart-healthy wholesome meal.

So the next time you're out for a meal, remember, you always have a choice for the most Nutrient-vs-calorie dense option.

Whatever choices you make, accept it, embrace it and move on!

1. Box of different flavoured buttered Toasts.
2. Box of fried banana fritters with layers of cheese, chocolate and condensed milk.
3. Pack of Shihlin XXL Chicken.
4. Netflix and chill.

Because we all need some downtime and food coma sometimes. #comforr

Though more a crepe, than a wrap, this egg batter 'wrap' conceals deliciously crunchy peanut butter. Crepe-like egg batter, Peanut Butter? Genius.

I'm not one for snacks but this is definitely my idea of tea-time (though I Never get tea) 💙.
My only gripe is that the wrap disappears in under 5 minutes. WHY?! 😩
