Customers are allowed to mix and match their combos. Choices include red rice , soba and pasta. As for the mains, the highlights include the unagi with mentaiko and salmon sashimi/ mentaiko.

For $9.90, it’s actually quite pricey. Some places would include an onsen egg as part of the meal. But this counts as an additional topping at 90 cents.

Overall, food quality was reasonable but it’s slightly pricey.

I think the only item memorable about this dish was the deep fried marinated pork.
Everything else was meh. I expected the pasta to be those short penne kind which you would get from salad shops but it turned out to be the normal long thicker noodle version. The miso was more of a soup than a sauce ?? Not very nice as well. Not sure why they actually decided to change their menu because the duck confit I had previously was excellent.

Their matcha latte was not too bad.

Shop unit was rather small and service was quite slow since there’s only 3 staff mending the outlet.

Food wise, the burpple set came with a main, miso soup, salad, hot tea and a prawn. The prawn was raw tho, would have preferred it to be cooked.

Enjoyed the unagi Don because of its huge portion and it was rather thick as well. Salmon was pretty good as well.

Major love for the tamogo with the mentaiko sauce !!! Yummy

The Burpple deal being $30.90 for 2 sets made this meal pretty worthwhile.

This place never disappoints !!!!!
4th visit here and the standard is pretty consistent.

Food was served quite fast and the serving of the beef was pretty generous. Love that it’s only priced at $14.90 per bowl which I consider it to be pretty affordable as well.

Never enjoyed such a good protein bowl in such a long time. Personal fave was the daily cut and I guess this place does give it a run for its money.

Priced at $11 for their small/regular bowl, the serving was very generous.

Opted the penne, beef, onsen egg, curried cauliflower, roasted sesame sauce and parmasan cheese topping.

Beef was similar to the sukiyaki kind, thin and tender. The cauliflower wasn’t over cooked and it still retained its bite to it.

Truffle taste in this dish wasn’t distinct at all. Not sure if it’s because I ate the truffle fries before this and it made this beef bowl rather bland.

However, they were pretty generous with the beef portion. Beef was tender as well.

In love with this affordable dining option located in SMU !!! Tried their chicken before and giving this beef bowl a try. Generous portion of the beef maybe cos they were closing for their tea break. Beef was on the sweeter side but I still loved it. Loved the onsen egg as well. The mentaiko sauce was FOC but I think it didn’t really match the beef as the sauce of the beef was already quite strong. The mentaiko with chicken combo was more favorable to me.

Generous serving of beef !! Taste is on the sweeter side but still loving the texture of the beef. It’s not tough at all.

Very generous with the mentaiko sauce. I expected the salmon to be like half cooked as I thought that it was going to be seared. However, they were raw covered with mentaiko. For someone that does not eat sashimi at all, I relished the entire bowl mainly because of the sauce. Would probably go for the beef one on my next visit !!!

Beef was tender and chicken was slightly on the sweeter side. Portion size is good if you’re not that hungry. But if you are, you can consume both the party bowls while leaving some rice behind :) Strongly recommend the beef.
