I think I’ve eaten this at least ten times over the past three years, no kidding. Anything at La Pizzaiola is great, but I especially love the carbonara- there is a bite that comes with fettuccine and the rich creamy sauce is offset by pancetta. You’ll be scraping the plate.

Prior to visiting I’d read reviews about the roll being a little small & stingy - they were right, but since we’re eating lobster in Singapore, I’d say the price point is very decent with the Burpple one for one deal.

We tried the four top flavors- original, Connecticut, cheesy and mentaiko. If you like eating bland lobster, the original is for you- if not, the $2 top up for something more savoury works well in your tastebuds’ favour. Skip the cheese- it cheapens your seafood.

This place used to be occupied by Crust and I remember being blown away by their Moroccan Lamb version. TWB didn’t disappoint - lamb was tasty, sufficiently gamey while not being smelly and the meat was very generous. I would eat this again on Burpple.

Ordered the two house specials, Beef Steak & Moroccan Lamb. While the beef wasn’t entirely steak I did appreciate that it was tender and tasted great. The accompanying tiger prawns, though overcooked, blended well with the red peppers.

Only downside? At $29++ for a 9” pizza, I don’t think I’d come here without Burpple Beyond.

I’ve been meaning to try this for years and this did not disappoint. Waffles were perfectly crisp yet chewy on the inside, chicken was AMAZING yet not too salty and went perfectly with the syrup sauce. I was a convert the moment my knife cut straight into the chicken with a satisfying crunch.

Stumbled upon this little joint at Jewel for its affordability compared to the other options. Their Poke Bowl had delicious chunks of salmon that you could really sink your teeth into and their stew (pictured) tastes much better than it looks. Their burger really surprised me with a tasty and generous salmon patty though it was a tad salty. Definitely a must try!

I honestly really want to like The Coffee Academics but I’ve been to this outlet three times and service was terrible.
Tried both all-day breakfast recommended items. The breakfast platter was surprisingly filling but my mother (new to this trend) was very upset I had dragged her away from a similar Ikea breakfast for this. The scrambled eggs were a huge letdown and I waited nearly fifteen minutes for salt and pepper. My vote goes to ikea, kopitiam or my own kitchen hands down.

The salmon poached eggs (pictured) on hash were decent. A tad too much dou miao taste but hash brown was perfectly golden and crisp. I wouldn’t pay for this again though.

Tried Italian dishes with a local seafood twist as recommended by the waitress - chilli crab pasta ($24) and golden fragrance seafood pizza ($22). The pasta was a tad salty but I appreciated the generous cheese shavings and decent amount of meat. The pizza my family found to be a huge letdown- sauce was decently local-tasting though a bit salty but the pizza dough was way too buttery and once we realised it tasted like prata, there was no un-tasting it. Probably wouldn’t go again.

Food was great and affordable (under $10 for the normal pho dishes) even without Burpple. I tried the eggplant chips with honey mayo twice and both groups really enjoyed it. This is also one of the rare places offering banh mi with pâté, which I really miss from Ho Chi Minh.

Do note that service is pretty slow, with the service staff disappearing at times into the kitchen.

Had the mentaiko pasta and Tom yum pasta. The former wasn’t hot and a little al dente resulting in a stomachache. Prawns were completely raw. Left in disbelief when they didn’t recook the prawns after I asked and left us waiting. The owner claimed I had told him I didn’t need it recooked. Staff barely apologised even after the situation had been clarified. Terrible cafe standards. This is my second time here and I was really disappointed because their sous vide bowls are not too bad.

Food was pretty decent- chicken cooked perfectly and flavourfully, pasta had a bit too much garlic but was generous on the creamy sauce. I did feel a bit cheated ordering the soup when it arrived in a teeny tiny bowl smaller than my palm (I’m fun sized, so imagine my horror). Worth it when they have their one for one mains (I didn’t have to use my Burpple Beyond).

For my new love of flowers and food
