Love the fusion dishes here, and how the Masses team take the time to explain the concept of the dishes. Ps. Hope the below dishes will stay, as they rotate their menu every 4 months

Tender angus beef cheeks in claypot that comes with "bourguignon" which is essentially it's braised sauce with onions, carrots and thick slices of non-fatty bacon (thankfully), also it comes with creamy mash. All the flavours come together not in an overpowering salty way, but executed smoothly and slightly reminiscent of your chinese claypot styles - full of gems and tastes. ($24.90)

The duck confit deserves a shout out too, we wished there's more of the wokhey horfun, and that it comes piping hot (was slightly lukewarm), but matched with the salted egg and tender duck confit, simply irresistible. Also one of the rare dish where I felt the salted egg complement it well and wasn't too loud. ($19.90)

Was slightly sad that their Ochazuke was no longer on their menu!

Time after Thanksgiving feels like Xmas already, and indulged in one of the places with best Xmas vibes: Marché

Must haves includes the crepe where we tried their pulled turkey in cranberry cream cheese sauce ($20.90). Best paired with their light cream sauce.

Also the half pork knuckle truly made it a festive feast. Crissspppy and heavenly crackle. Plus their mash potatoes are my favourite kind, includes many small potato bits. ($25.90 + $3.90 mash)

A marriage of sweet and savoury makes for a delightful and refreshing appetiser. Prosciutto may be too salty on its own, but became mild with the sweet melon.

With burpple one for one takeouts, we happily settled at the tables around the "fountain" with our truffled rosti meal + ribeye + spatzli. While rosti and sour cream is delightful, the truffle scent seems missing. Ribeye gave a good combi of fats but may be on the tougher side. I miss spatzli (an egg pasta) from my time in Munich indeed - the egg taste is strong

(~$27 for two of this, fyi only the mains are one for one)

Got to be one of the most fun and creative dinner dates I've had: immersing yourself in the Harry Potter world of magical food and mystical setting.

This fire whiskey chicken was delightful, like being coated with whiskey jelly, and set on fire !! Love how the fire flickers between orange and blue (like the Bluebell flames). ($18)

Favourite part has to be how we can dress up in these wizard and witches robes, swish and flick, swish and flick.

Elotes - or Mexican street food: grilled corn on a cob sprinkled generously with chili powder, grated cheese and doused with lime, makes for a very appetising opener at our dinner.

Also loved the beef brisket tacos and quesadillas! Plus, perfect view of the city in it's night time glory

Perched on the 43rd floor of Ocean Financial Center, it gives a grand view of the city and especially so during the golden hour.

This dish is a charcoal grilled Angus beef tenderloin and you can definitely taste the intense smokey charcoal taste in your mouth (like it's still on the grill). Wiping up the tender cuts with the rich porcini mushroom and mash potato is just perfect.

Paella de Marisco - traditional seafood paella. Must say my favourite part is scraping the crispy paella bits, doused with lemon juice and filled with juicy seafood. Together with sangria, endless conversations

Also learnt the difference between a prawn and a shrimp (no. of legs with 3 claws differ) very interesting

Truffle and unagi goes make an irresistible pairing, and it fits well in this Japanese inspired KOMA setting: the finest and most sophisticated Japanese food here. Dining here is like a scene from Pontocho Alley, Kyoto back in the times - dark, mysterious and exquisite.

This plate of edaname hummus is unbelievably irresistible. While its taste is reminiscent of bak ku teh, the consistent creaminess and hints of edaname makes it a perfect side. ($8 for small), will always order this when i'm back!

I savoured every bite of this steak, still juicy and paired very well with the melted butter (although its slightly more than medium rare). It also comes with a generous portion of truffle fries, which scent is on the lighter side. The steak is memorable, though i would also wish for its fats to be more melt-in-your-mouth kind of tender. Most of the menu is western/indian/middle eastern fusion.

($28) came here on labour's day eve, hence didnt get to enjoy the 1-for-1. Nevertheless, we left with happy bellies!

Its something about its cosy rooftop bar overlooking the shophouses and cityscape, its delightfully juicy steak and truffle fries, and most importantly, its screening room featuring old school movies complimentary to all its diners. Its a gem of an hideout in Ann Siang hill, and i would say catching a movie in the screening room after a dinner at their rooftop scores a memorable first date, a place worthy to be waxed lyrical about.

Additional perks that its on burpple beyond! (~$34 inclusive of GST for two)
