Toa Payoh has the most number of bubble tea shops that I have ever seen in a neighbourhood. Amazing Hoki being one of them, has its own bold creations to offer despite not being at the most prominent location as its competitors. You gotta walk a distance to locate it.

Boasting of its potent antioxidants for health benefits, the purple romance made using butterfly pea flower and lemonade was a refreshing choice for me on that scorching hot day to quench my thirst. However, for those who do not enjoy the lemon acidity, this might not be the one for you.

The brown sugar drinks series comprised of the fresh milk, matcha milk and cocoa milk. While the matcha milk that we had was pretty ordinary with a balance between the bitterness and sweetness, the chewy pearls coated in the sweet caramelized brown sugar sauce were worth mentioning.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 drinks at the price of 1! Taste even sweeter when you get 50% off ;) Join me by signing up for premium Burpple Beyond membership and access 1-for-1 deals at nearly 600 curated restaurants!

I finally understood why the queue at Biseryu was perpetually long. Other than the limited seating capacity, the no-fuss bistro offers an extensive menu of Japanese fusion food from burgers, to omurice, black curry and many more. Took quite some time to even decide what to get as I was really
spoilt for choice. Highly recommended to make a reservation or else be prepared to queue!

Built using Kuroge wagyu beef patty topped with bacon, cheddar cheese and tomato sauce, the bf was really satisfied with the patty and its texture which he felt like it was handmade. You don’t have to worry about making a mess as a burger wrapper is provided so that you can enjoy holding the burger in comfort. Each burger comes with potato wedges and onion rings.

I chose the pork loin cutlet set from the Tonkatsu Kagura menu where specially selected pork from the Kagoshima prefecture is used. For a substantially big pork cutlet that’s served with rice, salad and 2 side dishes, it’s really what you would call value for money. I especially enjoy sprinkling some pink salt on the crispy bread crumbs while biting into the juiciness of the pork meat.

Thanks to Burpple Beyond, we enjoyed 2 main dishes at the price of 1, which comes with a drink each! On a side note, perhaps they could think of improving their service as the staff wasn’t too patient when we wanted to clarify the exclusions and payment method.

Homegrown brand Collin’s serves affordable western cuisine of an extensive selection at more than 23 outlets islandwide. We had the Collin’s mixed grill, featuring chicken chop which I felt more like a piece of succulent roasted chicken and paired pretty well with the pesto cream sauce, summer Kabana pork sausage, and pork chop that was far from tender. Thankfully the black pepper sauce made it more chewable. Served with seasonal vegetables and what we enjoyed the most, mushroom potato au gratin. We were surprised that the mushroom potato au gratin, that contained potato chunks, were executed pretty well, without being too dry nor salty. The gratin especially was delicious.

Thanks to Burpple Beyond, we enjoyed 2 mixed grills at the price of 1, extremely worth it for meat lovers! The portion was huge (I didn’t manage to finish my serving) albeit the tough pork chop.

While this wasn’t a hot favourite of the night, the use of nagaimo (Japanese yam) for the espuma was rather unique. Although there wasn’t much flavour to it, the slimy texture was peculiar. Made with cold somen, herbs diced chicken breast, nitamago, ikura. Overall impression of the dish was a clean eat, but the best part was the shoyu goma and vinegar mix dressing as it wonderfully imparted a fragrant nutty aroma to the noodles.

Check out this huge fatty slab of house grilled unagi that’s bound to have leave you satisfied. The (almost) boneless unagi was nicely grilled with a hint of charred smokiness, drizzled with a slightly sweet teriyaki sauce that could have been more to drench up the rice a little better. Although you can always break the onsen egg to have the rice soak up the runny yolk. Served with onsen egg, shimeiji mushrooms, and pickled cucumbers. A delicious option for those who don’t take beef like myself.

It’s surprising that a cafe specializing in cream buns actually serve rather decent grain bowls. They really don’t disappoint, just like this chef recommended Fatty U grain bowl. Ah that smooth fattiness of the chestnut pork belly, all thanks to the 20 hours sous vide. I am one who’s afraid of biting into extremely fat pork belly but I am glad that this had a good meat-to-fat ratio and pretty flavourful. Served with nitamago, shimeiji mushrooms, pickled cucumbers and truffle slices that weren’t exuding much of an earthy aroma that I was expecting. A very filling grain bowl you have there!

From beans to bar, just as Lemuel as promised. Enjoy a cup of single origin hot chocolate at Lemuel Chocolate tucked away at Westway, their second outlet apart from the one at Star Vista. Cozy space to hangout or simply to chill especially on a rainy day, as the human traffic is relatively low in the area. Each cup of hot chocolate boasts of a distinct fruitiness, notably from the cocoa beans that they used instead of processed chocolate. Worth every penny you pay. In addition, they also serve chocolate pastries such as brownies, bonbons and tarts, as well as organise scheduled workshops. Do note that some pastries are outlet specific.

Thanks to Burpple Beyond, we enjoyed 2 cups of hot chocolate at the price of 1! Warmed our hearts so much on a rainy afternoon!

@shrovetuesday_sg, My new favorite ice cream place in the Toa Payoh neighborhood. Go for their signature waffles, especially the nyonya chendol waffle. Particularly delightful was the crispy waffle, which had a fluffy hollow interior. Indulge in the 3 luscious scoops of coconut, vanilla and gula melaka ice cream and dollops of red bean, chendol jelly and desiccated coconut. A splendid rendition of the original dessert. We also had the strawberry cream with charcoal waffle, stacked like a tower. Strawberry lovers, you will surely enjoy this jammy strawberry ice cream!

Located within the dining food court of Don Don Donki at Jem, Ajifuku specialises in Tendons of a wide variety. We chose the Ebi Ten Katsu Don that comes with a bowl of miso soup, fried chicken skin and soft drink. Sadly, we were only given Dasani mineral water on that day.

Sitting atop a bed of fluffy Japanese rice were 3 tempura prawns and several chunks of breaded chicken Katsu. While the prawns were pretty juicy, the chicken chunks were a tad too dry. Fortunately the sweet-savoury dashi sauce drizzled over made it more palatable. The half-cooked egg also reminded me of an oyako don rather than the usual tendon. The freshly fried chicken skin made a fragrant and delicious appetizer with the accompanying wasabi mayonnaise. Will be back to try the remaining tendons!

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, the 2 ebi tendon Katsu don sets at the price of 1 had us leaving with bloated bellies!

For bubble tea with healthier options, check out the signature mung bean series at @hopiisg! I was initially skeptical about how a mung bean drink would turn out to be, but I ended up wanting to drink it a second time before leaving the area if not for the lack of stomach space. Like many others who have reviewed previously, imagine an ice blended green bean soup. The medium-sized drink was already rich and filling, especially with their chewy pearls. Since mung beans are known to be ‘cooling’ in our culture, I have to say it is indeed a refreshing choice of drink on a scorching hot day!

I will always recommend Kajiken to people who have never tried mazesoba, the Japanese dry-style ramen casually known as the Japanese Bak Chor Mee, and it has never once failed. With Burpple beyond, it’s extremely value for money as the set comes with a small side dish of your choice (cold tofu/potato salad/chicken karaage), miso soup and hot/ice roasted green tea in addition to the mazesoba which you can also ask for a free upgrade of noodles.

As a loyal fan of the Taiwan mazesoba Nagoya style, I always love how flavorful it is with the slight spicy minced pork sauce and the heap of spring onions! Toss in the onsen egg with the chewy noodles for a moist texture. Go for the tender char siew slices as they tear apart so delicately with each bite. Comparatively, the original mazesoba seemed to be bland without the minced pork and spring onions, though it was served with bamboo shoots.

The friendly staff will also recommend you to leave some sauce at the end to mix in with a small portion of rice. Find out for yourself just how well the sauce goes with rice!

For an alternative to Nine Fresh and Blackball in Novena, head over to Yocha where you can get similar yet much more affordable desserts. While I don’t really understand why I am not allowed to pick the fixed sets, I wouldn’t mind customizing my own either! Since both bf and I enjoyed the desserts with Burpple beyond on 2 separate visits, I practically tried almost everything on the menu.

My favorite combination would be the brown sugar grass jelly with honey ai yu jelly, though the grass jelly had a tougher texture. I had the lychee coconut jelly which tasted like nata de coco, the q balls which were also on the tougher side and not as flavorful as those from their competitors, as well as the passionfruit popping pearls for my toppings. Generally enjoyed the liquid toppings, but if you would like something more contrasting instead of pure sweetness, I would recommend the lemon juice.
