What:
Key Lime, Banana, S’mores and Pecan Pie 🤤 (Left to Right)

My reorders:
Actly LOL I would get the exact same thing again, but just in case u need some help, I would get it in this order.
S’mores > Key Lime > Pecan Pie > Banana

Taste:
Love love love the base of all the tarts/pies 😭 super hard to recreate??
S’mores - Solid choc + lotus mix 🥲 can’t go wrong
Lime - Strong, slightly alcoholic tasting key lime
Pecan Pie - Tried Pecan pie for the first time and it’s AAMAZING 😍 defo an acquired taste, a lil date tasting imo
Banana - child-friendly, your regular sweet tasting pie

Price:
$15.1 for 4 Amazingly Baked Pies 😭
What is there not to like??
Not even kidding when I say I began my Burpple Beyond journey because of this and An Acai Affair (back when it was still on BB)

Location:
URGH got so stressed looking for this place because I was already. so. tired… but it’s actually inside the Excellente Grocery Store, closer to the cashier - facing the inner portions of the store and away from sight…

Food:
Go for the Poet’s Burger and the Fish and Chips! The batter’s better than most! Possibly THE BEST battered fish & chips imo! Sizeable portions, very worth it with Burpple Beyond. Beef Patty in the burger was also very well seasoned - kudos to the chef!

Price:
Paid a total of 40.66 for 2 (Burpple Beyond now requires u to buy a set. Which means main+drink (cocktail/ draught beer) so it’s slightly more pricey than before when BB was just for the mains. My recc would be to SKIP the cocktails here because it’s super watered down (not sure if it’s because we used Burpple) but yea, not a fan.) stick to the mains!

Thoughts:
1. Would definitely want to bring all my friends here! I love the food 😬 I’ve personally always wanted to try the ribs… but for some reason - all 3 times I’ve visited this place, it always ran out…

2. Waiting time varies… from 10mins to an hour… LOL book in advance because it’s always full house (back when bars could play music) and make sure your order’s in. Had a pretty traumatic experience once 😪

3. Maybe not so much for people with HUGE appetites… Ild say the burger is very filling for an average person (both girl and guy), fish… not so much

4. Photo’s pretty meh but the food is pretty good so don’t take my word for it - try it! Perhaps now with P2HA, no eating in/ atmospheric music… taking away wouldn’t be as nice… guess you’ll just have to wait for when the restrictions are lifted!

Location/ Accessibility:
About 10 mins walk from Orchard MRT
Bring an umbrella or you’ll be drenched if it rains

Burger was Worth it with Burpple Beyond,
Drinks not so much... had a few drinks (2 All-day Happy Hour house pour and 1 glass each that came with the Burpple meal)

Total damage: ~$66
Breakdown:
Burpple Beyond | Bacon Cheese Burger $16 (1-for-1)
Burpple Beyond | Aperol Spritz $16 (1-for-1)
Happy Hour | $12 Sparkling Wine (Bottega, Prosecco Italy 2018) x2

Review:
Burger had thic juicy patties, brioche buns were pretty special to me but also quickly absorbed the patty oil and became semi-soggy (Tip is to eat fast)
Drinks don’t get la lol, very much preferred the ale I had the previous visit! V smooth, get that instead :-)

Price:
~$40 for 2,
Ild say worth tho there’s literally 5 thick slices

About the food:
Flavour was on point, you’ld have to try it for yourself 🥩

What I’ld go back for (ordered):
double cheese burger ($16), steak ($40 for 2 with BB), IPA beer (comes w steak as part of BB), vibes, deep fried pig ear, bread platter was ok only... can skip

Price:
Less than $20 for 2 bowls of goodness

Food:
Scorched rice with Beef and Salmon Mentai Don pictured here, beef didn’t taste very marinated, was a lil dry... but the rice was nicely cooked, Salmon Mentai can feel a lil gelat w the onsen egg mixed in, would suggest sharing a bowl!

What I would order:
Truffle Beef Don >
Salmon Mentai Don (+Chilli Padi on the side) >
Salmon w Chilli >
Scorched rice with Beef

Note:
bring umbrella ☔️ because if it rains, you’ll
1. Be stuck here
2. Be drenched - either ways, not good

Here for the Burrata Cheese, I can no longer go back to mere torn and sprinkled pieces of Burrata cheese served elsewhere.

Note that it’s served with thin crust, and can get oily because of the pesto but it’s all worth.the.calories 🤫

price: ~ $28 for 2 pizzas
when would I come back: whenever I crave pizza
what I would order (ordered): Burrata, Prosciutto, Truffle Mushroom (can feel like mushroom bread...)

You have to try it for yourself la $31 for 2 huge delicious soft springy-enough buns, impossibly seasoned patties layered with aioli sauce 🤭 crisp onion rings, and a drink (they ran out of coke lol so it came with a can of New Zealand water...) worth!

Back here again for more, Lecoq consistently delivers! Pictured here: Beef Wagyu Don and Iberico Char Siew Don

The Baby Back Ribs was a huge yes for me, searched thru my archive for this cause I thought the review section didn’t give it enough credit👌🏼 the wagyu Beef (not pictured) was pretty meh, not much texture

Beef was cooked to perfection, foie gras was perfectly marinated to enhance the original flavour and the Onsen egg made everything come together nicely. Really recommend this place! Nice ambience and not too crowded on a Monday night! Super worth it with BB

Tried the Rösti with Veal(calves) Bratwurst and Chicken Chop! Big portions, kinda oily but generally worth the try! The rösti falls apart when picked up tho

Babasan really does fusion really well, everything I’ve tried’s been real impressive

Belly Roll Mee, $13 (front)
Category: Main
Rate: 10/10
Visual: 10/10
Wow Factor: 10/10
Review: The Chefs really did it!! Their take on the classic Porchetta using Mee Siam as the stuffing, is really something else!! Very interesting dish, sounds odd but tastes Amazing. Is a must try when u come here!! This fusion food is so well thought out and really different from the rest!!

Oversized Salmon Skin, $11 (back)
Category: Appetiser
Rate: 10/10
Visual: 10/10
Wow Factor: 9/10
Review: another must try! Didnt think getting salmon skin for an appetiser would’ve been worth it but after the chef’s recommendation and trying it for ourselves, the crabmeat Ikura wasabi dip is what rly makes this dish different from other restaurants. (Tho the salmon skin itself was pretty oily)

Buah Keluak Wok Hei Fried Rice with Chicken, $10 (left)
Category: Main
Rate: 9/10
Visual: 8/10
Wow Factor: 9/10
Review: first time trying a Buak Keluak dish so reviews are not comparing to other Buah Keluak dishes but the wok hey is real! Every rice grain was nicely coated and an interesting taste!

Huevos Carbreados, $14 (I think) (right)
Category: Appetiser
Rate: 8/10
Visual: 9/10
Taste: 100% resemblance to Hainanese Chicken Rice, Fries version
Wow Factor: 8/10
Ingredients: Homemade chilli and garlic mayo, chicken, onsen egg, sloshed over shoestring fries.
Review: The fusion of the earthly ginger tgt with Chicken with fries is truly amazing!! Am a fan of the Hainanese Ginger taste as it makes eating a bowl of fries feel less sinful. Note that having the chicken and sauce on top of the fries make them soggy quickly so don’t spend too long taking photos, eat!

Ended off with Dessert (not included in BB)
Yuzu Muah Chee, $12
Category: Dessert
Rate: 7/10
Visual: 9/10
Ingredients: Oversized yuzu infused muah chee with soy bean and sour plum powder, served with coconut icecream
Wow Factor: 7/10
Review: Claims it’s good for 2 but Actly more than enough for 3 cause having dessert after all that good food, and muah chee in general’s also pretty filling. Really a fan of muah Chee but it did get a bit gelak towards the end. The flavour profile’s also pretty confusing with all the infused flavours...

Overall, the mains are their specialty and the food is really worth travelling down for! Will come back to try the others

[Update: went back to try the other dishes and was disappointed, the previous Chef left and new fusion dishes didn’t leave me awe struck]
