Modern interpretation of the traditional Korean rice dish of bibimbap served in a ice cream pint like tub. Choose a meat/veg base before adding 5 veg sides and a sauce of choice. Fresh seared salmon cubes were my choice and it goes really well with the vegetables and the sauce - a mixture of apple cider gochujang and soy garlic - try it! Their sauces were on point with a good blend of savoury, sweet, and spicy and not one taste was overly powering. Give it a good shake in the tub and enjoy!

Used the burpple beyond 1 for 1 deal for main dishes and got ourselves char siew and roasted pork which are their signature dishes. Served in individual bowls, the roasted pork belly came in 8 thick slices, they leaned more towards the fatty side which was surprisingly a tad tough for 1-2 pieces. Of special mention is the rind which is quite crispy. Otherwise, they were pretty ordinary. The cut for the char siew was pork belly. Sweet with a tinge of sourness and flame torched, nothing mind blowing (pun not intended) and just okay for me.

The fried wantons were oily - way over the top and too salty. It was also dense and too salty. Does not pair well at all with the XO sauce.

The noodles (mee Kia) were light, springy and savory. The chilli was sourish and did not add much to the dish. Pork lard was soft and a little rancid. Overall, a very disappointing dinner, too salty and one dimensional. Seems like the focus of this place is the drinks and not the food. Won’t be back.

Price: $10 for mains and $1 per bowl of noodles, $10 for fried wanton

The set comes with a soup, chose French onion and Clam chowder (top up applicable). Both soups were water like and lack how a good bowl of soup should be. The clam chowder came with just a couple of small clams and was unusually milky and I suspect thick cream was simply added to thicken the soup. As for the French Onion, it has lots of onion but still a lack down.

Ordered the Sesame chicken and the Thai style chicken popiah were quite unique and delicious albeit small. With roasted sesame sauce as it’s base, it is wrapped with veg and sprinkled liberally with peanuts. The Thai style chicken came with a mango (?) slice and was equally savory. Other than the popiah, the soups were a big letdown. Genmaicha from the tea bag was a nice touch to complete the meal.

Price: $9.80 for a set

Consisting of Irish Roast Duck, sweet corn, zucchini and spring onion, this is an ordinary plate of fried rice - albeit with some duck meat. On the salty side of the house, to be fair it was a decent plate of fried rice but nothing more. Perhaps they can fry it with duck fats or something to increase to umami which was non-existent.

Paltry amount of marinated US beef sits atop a scoop of Japanese rice. Lightly blow-torched and charred, it’s more sweet than savoury. Onsen egg and pickles are the accompaniments. The quantity is way too tiny and for that price, there are way better options out there.

Green lipped mussels sourced locally were used in this farm-to-table restaurant. Fresh and succulent, it’s the star of this dish. The curry, on the other hand, was unlike curry crab sauce as it’s more tangy and slightly spicy. Perfect for the dish but not quite suitable for the man tou as it lacks a more savory and balance texture. Pasta was al dente.

Price: $18

Uncle Kiisu, I suspect, is a rebranding effort and extension of its former self - Now Noodles. Both are at the exact same location. They now serve many dishes in an omakase style while retaining their signature dishes such as fried mee tai mak, dried laksa etc. Ordered the mee tai mak and one thing that struck me was how the portion has shrunk considerably. The wok hei flavors were still there, and the century eggs gave the dish a different dimension. It’s a tad too salty though as I find myself gulping down water after the meal.

Chicken thigh meat wrapped with minced chicken mixed with leek, shiso leaf and egg yolk. Steamed and then scorched upon serving. Sounded promising and looked so yummy but it failed miserably. It was blend and did not taste how it looked. Also, the charred bits did not add to the taste, while added to the expectations and resulting disappointment. Will not order again.

Price: $8.80 for 2 pcs

Using premium grain fed Angus beef that has been marinated in mirin and sake, and stewed in white wine, it is wonderfully melt in your mouth tender. The stock is on the sweet side probably due to the marinate of the beef and sweetness of the radish. The hand made noodles were springy though the amount is small.

Had the curry mussels pasta ($18), seabass pasta ($20) and roasted prawns ($16) but as the first two have been extensively reviewed, will share about the prawns. Deliciously sweet and tender flesh of the crustaceans complemented by a very yummy japanese-inspired nori cilantro butter and housemade shio kelp. The smokey bbq flavour added the perfect finish to these prawns. Was told by the server that the prawns we had were a bit smaller than usual but found them still fresh and oh so yummy. Only regret is that there weren't more of them.

Overall a great experience with fresh farm-to-table seafood, inventive yet local/ comfortable taste palate, and friendly service!

An interesting western fusion dish that actually resembled a nasi goreng dish instead. Overly salty without much depth in flavor, it only has small pieces of unagi which makes this dish highly disappointing. Ambience was casual and alfresco but due to the location, there were many mosquitoes and insects around the area making dining outdoors uncomfortable.
