Enjoying my Burpple beyond experience!

A dish at @enjoyeatinghouse that got me all excited with its twist of fresh prawns cooked in Singapore’s very own famous chilli crab sauce. Swimming in the thick sauce were a whole lot of seafood gems including squid 🦑 and plump, juicy prawns 🦐 that were already de-shelled for diners’ convenience. Personally, the sauce was tangy and slightly sweet instead of a spicier kick that could have probably made it even more flavourful. Despite so, I would still gladly mop up the sauce with the crispy deep-fried mantous that should not be missed. •

I have always wondered, if pairing watermelon with fried rice, would be a delightful taste or a peculiar one. While the Gin Khao Special watermelon fried rice, or Khao Phat Dtaeng Moe, was generous in portion and seafood ingredients, it was a little strange to savour warm watermelon balls, which could also be an interesting sweet twist to savoury. No doubt the watermelon contributed further to the sweetness of this dish, with pork floss and cashew nuts, I guess I would stick to my pineapple fried rice. Note that the serving in a watermelon bowl is only applicable to 2 pax portion.

The Khao Phat Kaneng Khiew Wan, or signature fragrant rice stir-fried in chicken with special green curry, was contrastingly savoury. There was no lack of onion slices, eggs and some vegetables though chicken meat was slightly lesser, but the tossing of rice in green curry resulted in an overly-moist and mushy texture of the rice. Also, it would have been more delectable if the green curry flavour was stronger instead of being monotonous.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, I was even more motivated to check Gin Khao Bistro out for dining by the sea, despite the long travel!

Hidden at Blk 125 Bukit Merah Lane which occupies just half shop space, Moocha can be described as a small and simple bubble tea shop with no fanciful interior design, in fact there’s only a sign hanging on the wall written Moocha in Chinese calligraphy.

On a rainy afternoon, I asked for a hot Pi Pa Gao Oolong Tea with an additional white pearls topping. The familiar cooling minty flavour was soothing to the throat but didn’t quite blend well with oolong tea which was bitter. The white pearls were a disappointment as they just felt like some soggy starchy balls.

What came as a shock was the double pearls brown sugar milk tea; I mean, brown sugar milk tea these days meant the brown sugar streaks on the wall of the cup but I guess it’s entirely different here. It appeared as a cup of normal milk tea but the taste of brown sugar was evident. Good save there, though aesthetically suspicious. Again the double pearls had white pearls with a mix of the black ones, which were way better in terms of chewiness though tended to the firmer side.

Probably one of the most worthy deals on Burpple Beyond. Look at the char-grilled river eel fillet that sits elegantly on top a bed of fluffy Japanese rice. Smokiness on point with a gleam of sweet glaze, accompanied by an oozy onsen egg. Do note that, however, there were quite a bit of little bones which were prickly. Of course, you can just pick them out.

Truffle-infused wagyu striploin, served with pickled greens, onsen egg and fluffy Japanese rice. I can’t comment on the taste as it wasn’t my order, but the pinkish-red meat surrounding the rice was already looking like a true indulgence.

Check out the Single Origin Dark Chocolate series, especially comforting on a cooling day like this. I have always enjoyed @discoverthedark’s fine quality of cocoa, an indulgence that I am willing to dive into. As a dark chocolate lover, I am glad that the Tanzania 75% Dark chocolate didn’t disappoint. With a subtle acidity, a strong body of fruitiness and intense bitterness, the chocolate flavour was further lifted by a hint of spiciness, which would probably pair well with berries or nuts. Boyf had the Venezuela 72% Dark chocolate that displayed heavy woody notes. Robust, but somehow slightly creamier in my opinion. Recommended pairings are bergamot, caramel, hazelnut.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we had an even sweeter indulgence of 2 beverages at the price of 1! I know I would be back to try the other desserts that they have to offer. Join me by signing up for a 20% off all-day Burpple Beyond membership and access 1-for-1 deals at over 490 curated restaurants!

Thanks to Burpple Beyond, I always get to try different drink combinations at Hollin, at both the Suntec and Toa Payoh outlets.

There wasn’t really too significant difference between the earl grey milk tea and the earl grey tea latte, but generally I enjoyed both their smooth creaminess and the aromatic bergamot flavour that comes through the creaminess with a hint of floral. Taro paste came in generous chunks with real taro bits which added a little powdery texture, possibly enjoyable for taro lovers. Rock salt pearls had a complex contribution to the overall flavour of earl grey and taro so if you like simple flavours, stick to their lightly sweet honey pearls that’s available everyday.

Thanks to Burpple Beyond, we got to try these drinks from Ice Fork on National Day. First time trying a Gula Melaka version of the usual brown sugar fresh milk, and the main difference is the sweetness of the Gula Melaka that’s not as indulgent as the usual brown sugar. Also, you can taste a hint of roasted coconut, though lacking of the sticky sweetness of the brown sugar. The pearls in the drink are comparatively smaller, but still chewy.

For a refreshing treat, try their recommended pineapple passionfruit tea. Good balance between the sweet and sourness, with real chunks of pineapple and passionfruit to be enjoyed. A tropical drink that I wanted to quench thirst.

Still the ever consistent Hojicha soft serve that left a deep impression on me ever since my first visit at Twenty Grammes, with its light aromatic roasted tea flavour and the edible flowers. Topped on a crispy Belgian waffle with banana, berries and chocolate hazelnut sauce.

The Isabelle waffles was a first time for me, it has no soft serve or ice cream, but replaced by Greek yoghurt. Served on charcoal waffles, alongside toppings such as peaches, berries, banana, granola, pumpkin seeds and maple syrup. It seemed rather healthy, but the yoghurt with waffles match didn’t appear to work out well, especially with a strong fermented taste and didn’t quite melt into the waffle. Felt like a really heavy dessert and I would rather stick to ice cream with waffles in future.

Having tried the Chahan Unagi on the first visit, I thought the fried rice here was somewhat similar to that garlic fried rice even though it was stated as a Buah Keluak Fried Rice. I appreciated its fragrant wok hei with a spoonful of mashed buah keluak and chili paste akin to hae bee hiam (or spicy fried shrimp sambal) which really added a spicy kick.

Fried with shiitake mushrooms and chicken chunks, I was surprised to find that the chicken chunks were added separately instead of tossing in the buah keluak paste, which I felt could have been done so to enhance the overall buah keluak impression.

@kookscreamery does wonders, especially by fixing a disappointing dinner. I underestimated how popular it was until I witnessed the never ending crowd despite limited seating space.

Although there were only 2 options for the lava cookie, signature chocolate and matcha, they have quirky ice cream flavours such as the mermaid spirulina, and the blue chai Hokkaido milk. Surprisingly, the lightly floral blue chai Hokkaido milk flavour was a perfect marriage of flavours with the slightly bitter matcha lava. While the other set we had was a chocolate explosion, as the cold classic rich dark chocolate melted into the warm milk chocolate lava that was oozing out of the warm cookie.

Each cookie is made upon order, hence a short waiting time should be expected. It breaks instantly as the scoop of ice cream sits on top, and watching the molten lava oozing was quite comforting. While I enjoyed the chewy texture and a buttery aroma of the cookie, I also noticed the different toppings they had for different ice cream like cookie crumbs and corn flakes. Each #burpplebeyond set comes with a serving of tea, ranging from black, green to fruit tea, which we welcomed for cleansing palates. I am happy to have found my motivation to travel to Serangoon. 😄

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, I got to enjoy 2 cookie lava sets with drinks at the price of 1! A huge favour done to help me eliminate the dilemma of which cookie lava flavour to choose since I can enjoy both!

The strong release of wok hei here reminded me of that in a plate of Penang Char Kway Teow. Mousetail noodles fried with rempah, century egg, minced pork and prawn, shiitake mushrooms, spring onions. Very much a dish packed with heavy savoury flavours. It was the spicy rempah that, in my opinion, labelled this with a peranakan fusion identity. Only point to note was its saltiness, could be less heavy-handed.

My first visit to @bccteastudio was unpleasant due to the impolite service, but the team was quick to respond for a follow-up, which I truly appreciated!

As compared to the first time when I had the brown sugar boba with fresh milk which I felt was average, I enjoyed the Cheeky Beeru of the Fantasies series which was recommended. A peach flavoured fizzy drink topped with a thick layer of creamy milk froth, made to look like beer. Delivered as per description, non-alcoholic, and goes really well with the lychee jelly recommendation. Only thing was that the milk froth got a little jelak till the end.

First sip of the brown sugar boba with Jasmine milk tea had me on a sugar rush, from the warm brown sugar. Thankful for the floral jasmine tea to counter that Despite that, the brown sugar was lacking smokiness and could have been caramelized further.
