Get the burrito as it is so much more filling than the kebab and cheaper than the daily bowl.
Chicken is the best choice out of all the meats. The impossible meat is pretty disappointing

Food was pricey, quantity was small and quality far from expected. The fish was dry and hard yet so expensive. Soup was bland and didnt have alot of ingredients for the price. Did not come with any side dishes and no kimchi at all. Would say that it is very disappointing and will definitely not return again

Chinese rojak stall just next to famous yong tau foo stall in tiong bahru. Surprising nice. The water chest nut cake was surprisingly nice as was really not expecting much. Chilli was nice but would be better if they had the traditional pink sauce as well.

Ambience: small little restaurant that resembled an izakaya in japan. Clean and cosy.
Food: superb food. Beef was tender and cooked right in front of you. Rice sauce wasnt too overpowering and rice was moist and fluffy.
Price: for $17.55 (nett), you get a chawanmushi, beef bowl with onsen tamago as well as free flow pickled cabbage and radish. Worth every penny


Food was ok but they weirdly take a very long time to prepare this considering there wasnt a need to cook anything. Waited about 30mins for food to come. Otherwise egg is as fresh as they claimed it to be. But this small bowl of rice with a few pieces of salmon for $8.80++ is rather ex. Wished it was $2 cheaper.


If you are tired of queuing up for putien, do give this restaurant a try. Seems like their food is rather similar to putien and makes me wonder if the chef used to work there. Nevertheless, it is worth a try

Located in seletar mall B1, the porridge here is flavourful and savoury. There was also alot of liao and not just porridge. Pork was tender and juicy without the overbearing pork smell. Will recommend!!

Had the cordon bleu. Portion was so small it was almost kids sized. Food was average as well. Paid $18.90 for it. So not worth it. Even with burpple 1 for 1, I feel that it is not worth it. Would direct you to the hawker centre at kovan. The fish and chips there are so much better and fuss free.

Sponge is soft and bouncy but not as moist as Le Castella cake. It is a satisfactory alternative to Le castella as the queues are shorter and near neighborhoods.

Most branches are in the neighborhood shopping centre so convenient for a quick meal or when catching up with friends. $20+ per portion does seem a bit expensive though and not sure if this spicy chicken place is the most value for money place. However, for students, they have a lunch time promotion so do check it out!

Burpple beyond promotion does not include takeaways. In the end bought one since travelled all the way here. $5.90 for the yuzu swiss roll. Was plain indeed. Yuzu taste not strong. The jelly in the middle of the roll didn’t have a strong yuzu taste. Was not tarte enough. As there was alot of thick cream, couldnt really stomach the whole roll.
Good points: sponge is soft, moist and fluffy. Cream a smooth and fresh
Overall: Will only buy if there is 1 for 1. Otherwise will give it a miss

Chomp chomp has known to be very crowded during meal times. Best is to avoid peak hours. As much as the food is good, not sure if it is worth the wait for seats. Actually had to wait 40mins to eat these bbq seafood.
Verdict: worth travelling to serangoon gardens for it but maybe not the extra waiting time for seats.
