Once again, wasn't expecting good food from a bar, but I was blown away by these 2 dishes.

The BBQ Pork Ribs ($25 added $2 for cheese fries 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) was pretty tender, not fall off the bone tender, but was good enough. The sauce wasn't overpowering, and the meat was really flavourful! There's alot of meat in this one; definitely great for sharing! The cheese fries were great as well; crispy and fluffy.

The herb crusted fish ($22 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) was really good as well! The fish was so soft you probably don't need teeth to eat this. The dill from the cream sauce comes through very nicely, making the dish really flavourful! Definitely coming back hehe

One of the newer bars around, #WLJK offer a good range of meats, and definitely an extensive range of alcohol. I had the striploin ($30.80 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) and it was a decent steak for its price. The steak had a good flavour and the char on it was on point. The only downside was that it was just slightly tough. The truffle fries at the side though, although the truffle flavours were abit too faint, the fries were so darn crispy and fluffy that they were super addictive 😍

They told us the cheesecake ($6) is popular and that it is must-try. They were right 😂 the cheesecake was smooth, creamy and the cheese wasn't overpowering. One of the better cheesecakes I've had!!

The service is superb, and you can tell the waiters have the passion to serve.

A famous place for drinks, Tipsy Bird has an interesting take on local dishes. The XO Fried Carrot Cake ($12) has the wokhei you're looking for and paired with the sakura ebi and other condiments, this dish is packed with umami! The chilli power packed, be careful 🤣

The Truffle Beef Hor Fun ($23) indeed has that truffle taste, but sadly the beef steak was tough and slightly overcooked. Probably a miss on this!

Other than that, it's definitely a good place for drinks 😁

Now I really wasn't expecting much of food from a bar, but Tipsy Penguin gave me a wonderful surprise. The Gyudon Beef Bowl ($16) was really mind-blowing; the beef slices itself, although not many were given, but they had such a good smoky char flavour and they were so tender as well. The mushrooms were very beautifully sautéed, with such a strong umami flavour 😍 definitely will be back again!

Banger and Mash ($22 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) I must say, I wasn't expecting much of the food from a bar but this is really one of the better I've had. Really creamy and smooth mashed potatoes with peppery flavourful sauce, juicy sausages and crispy onion rings. The vibes of the place is fantastic, perfect for a chill night with friends, or even a date 😏

Just phenomenal. We ordered a variety of skewers (1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) including pork, beef and mushrooms. The pork belly skewers were so darn juicy and the beef skewers were very tender. Both were flavoured well with Chinese 5-spice! The mushroom skewers were so good as well, as they were grilled till they have a crispy crust.

The stir fried pork and kimchi ($7.90 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) was so good as well, as the kimchi really provided the refreshing taste I was looking for from all the meats.

To top it off, the Kirin frozen beer ($15) was just FANTASTIC because the frozen beer foam makes this beer like a slushie, perfect thirst quencher indeed.

In need for some Korean fried chicken with beer or soju? Take a little trip down to Seoul Good at the Punggol East Container Park that has nice vibes for some good chi-maek! The soy garlic special chicken ($17.90 for 12 pcs) has the sweet savoury kick that you are looking for. The shoyu chicken ($9.90 for 6 pcs) in fact gave me the best impression, as it remains its crispiness with the slight saltiness from the shoyu.

The sugar mummy tower (yogurt soju) we got was $69.90. Overall, its a pretty chill place for some drinks with friends! Best of all, no gst and service charge 🙃🙃🙃

The Rebel Company Cafe & Bar offers a wide selection of food items, and we ordered the Hungry Rebel Beef burger and the Rib-eye steak. The burger surpassed our expections, with 2 wholesome juicy patties that had full-on flavour. Paired with bacon, cheese and guacamole, the burger was near perfection.

The steak on the other hand was tough, although it had some flavour.

These were available on burpple beyond (meat lover set for $39.90 for 2 people) and it included bottle beers!

Now this place really do live up to its name. The Chaota Belly Good ($18 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) is beautifully charred, with the outside forming a satisfying crust while keeping the inside incredibly tender and succulent. You can smell the smoke within the meat itself. To me, this meat doesn't need the pairing sauce and its one of the best I've tried.

The Asari Clams Aglio Olio ($18 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) has the beautiful reduced clam stock as its sauce and it coated around each strand perfectly. Not too heavy tasting, this dish can be a good pairing to the Belly Good!

Visited this bar for my first time and it will be a bar I know I will visit often.
The truffle mushroom linguine ($22) was so fragrant and the truffle taste was very strong. Portions are rather big as well!

The beef brisket ($32) had 4 thick slices of beef brisket which was so succulent, tender and flavourful.

The Stoner burger ($24) boast a very juicy patty that went well with their house sauces. Wished that the patty can be a little bit softer though!

The Moby burger ($22) is my personal favourite and the fish fillet given was so darn meaty and fresh! In fact, it is one of the best I've tried.

All of the fries and onion rings provided are one of the best I've tried as well, and I could not stop eating them! And did I mention that all of the mains stated are available 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond? This makes such a quality meal so much more worth it 😍😍 thank you @mischief.sg for such a good meal!

Came into the bar not expecting much, but left with a full heart and stomach.

I ordered the burger with aged Cheddar and bacon ($17), and it was perfect. The patty was thick and juicy and full-on flavour, the aged cheese gave the extra earthiness, and the other vegetables and sauces used in the burger were really fresh and complemented the patty so beautifully. The sourdough bun held everything together and soaked up whatever juices that leaked from all of the ingredients.

Steak fries ($10) were really fluffy and you can really taste the potato.

For drinks I had the gluckbringer ($14), which was a tad too sweet for me, but should be fine for most people. I love my cocktails a little more sour, hence the mojito ($14) would have been a better choice.

TAP boasts many different varieties of craft beers that come straight from the chilled taps (not from bottles!). Each craft beer ($10 per pint 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) have their own unique characteristics, and I would say that the critus and fruity flavours are safe for most first timers.

Their bar snacks do have quality as well, and their truffles fries ($12 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) did give the truffle kick we all craved for.
