Traditionally, Hong Zao Ji is a dish served during confinement due to the use of red glutinous rice wine, ginger, and black vinegar which can help to expel wind and improve blood circulation for women who have just conceived. The rich aroma and taste of the rice glutinous rice wine, coupled with the bright reddish-brown color, is probably the reason behind why this dish can be polarising.

A Hakka traditional dish, the Hong Zao Ji served here was indeed aromatic with the generous amount of rice wine used in a small claypot filled with chunks of tender chicken meat. Despite so, we all agreed in harmony that the rendition by Enjoy eating house was a tad too salty, such that it is difficult to have the dish on its own. If you wish to order it, it is highly recommended to request for white rice to go along with.

It is very seldom that I come across a whole deep-fried fish served with thick sauces like this. But this deep-fried barramundi was well executed, beginning with its freshness since it’s being delivered to the restaurant daily. The fish is then skillfully filleted, so you actually get to taste the fish chunks by the skeleton hassle-free. What was really stunning in this dish was Chef Joel’s red coconut-based curry sauce, exuding nothing but Spicy notes alongside coconut milk. It is rich, creamy and comes with long beans and onions, topped with saffron-like red chili strips. A unique interpretation of fish curry. So good that it would really have been wiped out if there was rice to go with.

A new appetiser on the menu is the Har Jeong Sotong Kia made by deep frying baby squid coated in a fermented prawn paste batter. I adored the crisp and slight fishiness added to the mollusc, but like many others on the table, perhaps the batter could be reduced as it felt like we were tasting more batter than squid. In fact the accompanying dip was intriguing; a custardy sauce that had the tart and tang of mayonnaise coupled with oyster sauce. I was actually taken aback by the fact that the briny flavour was pretty evident.

Star of the night was definitely the ugly cabbage in fish sauce as everyone was in awe by how its unassuming looks (therefore ugly) delivered a heavily wok hei-infused flavour. Besides, the inherent sweetness of the crunchy cabbage complemented with the savoury flavours from the fried garlic and fish sauce unexpectedly. Addictive umaminess explains why its so good that I can simply just have it with a bowl of rice.

@enjoyeatinghouse has been around in the F&B scene known for serving comforting zi char with a modern twist, some dishes even being family recipes handed down such as the Grandma’s Te Kah Bee Hoon. This is my first time at the Stevens outlet other than the Kam Leng Hotel outlet that I have been to.

Delightfully, the taste of the silky egg seafood crispy hor fun is still as how I remembered it to be. It’s an interesting play on texture, and it’s 1 of the 2 places that I know serving crispy hor fun so far. (The other being The Dragon Chamber). Flat rice noodles deep fried to a crisp akin to crackers while soaking in a rich egg sauce topped with prawns, pork, fish fillet, squid and shiitake mushrooms. The trick to enjoying this dish is to savour it immediately upon serving, as the fried hor fun can turn soggy rather quickly. Some might find it a little pricey due to its portion though.

The other main that we had was the Schweinshaxn burger, or pork knuckle in malt bun. Although the malt
bun didn’t really taste very different from the usual buns, the huge meaty pork knuckle chunk with crackling skin made up for it. The meat was also cooked till tender and easily bitten off. In fact, it was as if the entire dish was translated into a burger as there was also Sauerkraut, a traditional sour shredded cabbage salad and pickles. Served with fries.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 mains at the price of 1! Super value for money!

Hands down this has to be one of the best Burpple beyond deals to consider if you are dining in a group! Excluding the platters, there’s so many choices that you can use the deals for, for instance dishes under the house of schnitzel, the house of brotzeit and many more. Besides, Brotzeit is known to be generous with their food portion, even in a group, you will be so well fed!

The Huhnerschnitzel features a huge slab of breaded chicken breast, pairing with a choice of fries, side salad, potato salad or parsley potato. While some parts might get a little dry inside (not surprising also because it’s chicken breast), the breaded batter was tasty, not overly thick nor greasy. It comes with a side condiment to dip in, the sweet cranberry sauce. Although the sauce would help in reducing the dryness, I didn’t really find it complementing as it was too sweet fruity for the chicken. Given the portion of the schnitzel, I couldn’t finish the shoestring fries.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we had 2 main courses at the price of 1! Will definitely utilise all my deals at Brotzeit! Too value-for-money to not do so.

Wanpo Tea Shop, originated from Taichung in Taiwan, serves pretty fine quality tea of a wide variety. We had a boba taro milk which had chewy caramelic boba pearls in taro fresh milk of a thick consistency. It’s hard not to taste the huge chunks of taros, and it’s probably recommended only if you are truly a taro lover. We also had a tea based drink that was light and refreshing; the sugarcane baozhong tea. While the partner felt that it was like a diluted sugarcane drink, I thought it was thirst quenching as it is not as fermented as oolong yet falling short of the sharp green tea notes. In fact, the sugarcane had a lingering, delicate sugary sweetness.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 bubble teas at the price of 1! Wanpo was also flexible in allowing us to mix and match the different beverage sizes.

Opened last November, it is not difficult to spot 2nd serving located in Holland Village with its striking red vending machine door and a pastel pink interior. Funky-looking, though unfortunately it has limited seating and no one/system to man the queue outside for diners waiting for seats. We were lucky to have gotten the bar counter seats after 15 mins.

Many have reviewed about their uncommon flavors such as tau sar piah and kueh Bangkit, but they are also known for their tea-infused flavors. Noting the availability of tie guan yin and pu er, I asked for the difference and recommendation, and was told that Pu Er would be slightly more bitter. More so of a personal liking, I enjoyed the slight astringency of the Pu Er infused gelato as it wasn’t overly sweet, yet not compromising the tea aroma at the same time. It also complimented the sweeter cookie dough flavor that we had.

If you are a fan of Mochi or Mochi waffle, then you should really try their seasonal fudgy Mochi waffle before it goes off the menu after July! Although it wasn’t presented as aesthetically impressive that we thought it would be, its taste exceeded expectations surprisingly. It was dense, filled with chocolate chips and warm, stretchy Mochi. Even for someone like myself who don’t usually prefer Mochi, I enjoyed the Mochi waffle especially as the gelato melted to pair with the warm Mochi.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 single scoops at the price of 1! Do note that the additional charge for premium flavors are not entitled for the discount.

Isn’t it cool to have a zi char stall in the hood that partners with Burpple Beyond? Didn’t have a good impression of their food initially based on my first visit for the pao fan which has since been removed from the menu, but still decided to give their zi char a try since it’s on burpple beyond, and we have found it to be more than worthwhile!

For 2 people, we had a large claypot noodles which was indeed relatively big in size and generous portions of ingredients such as pork slices, prawns, fish cakes and a runny egg. We also had the French beans with dried shrimps for a healthier meal; even with a medium portion, it felt like the amount of French beans was never ending. Pretty tasty as I attempted to pick up all the garlic bits and dried shrimps, essence of the dish that gave its aroma.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 dishes at the price of 1, and we are now addicted to their food! Given the portion, it’s superb value-for-money especially when you are sharing for a group meal.

An unassuming small shop space located in the Bukit Gombak neighborhood, Coconut & Fam serves coconut shakes that could easily compete with bigger brands and even taste better than some of them! For every new coconut shake brand, I’d always give the original flavour a try for the very first time. Other than how value for money their coconut shakes are given the large was really larger than usual, the overall taste and texture were quite balanced. Creaminess was just right, and the coconut bits were generously added. You can also customise the sweetness level to your liking. They also provide 2 small tables in front of the shop space should you want to enjoy and chill over their coconut shakes.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 large coconut shakes at the price of just 1! Mindblowingly $5 for 2 large cups which meant that it was only $2.50 for such a quality drink! Found my new favourite coconut shake!

Having been to their sister cafe, Burnt Cones, we knew that we could get quality gelato here at Up in Smoke. While it has already been opened for quite a while, the queue seems to still be pretty long and the limited seating capacity that you would probably want to take note of.

We went for flavours that we hadn’t tried before. The ube, with its bright purple color was quick to catch one’s attention. The earthy, rooty taste of the Filipino Yam was rather intense, although it slowly became cloyingly sweet towards the end. On the other hand, the coffee, a limited time flavour, somewhat fell below expectations. It was in fact more caramelic sweet instead of the roasted coffee note that came through.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 premium single gelato scoops at the price of just 1!
