We finally decided to do so during the Circuit Breaker and we honestly regret not giving them a try earlier. The duck pizza exceeded our expectations and came with a generous amount of duck slices. The beef bourguignon, on the other hand, was a little too tomatoey for our liking, but this was made up for with the chunky cubes of beef which were fork-tender and very juicy. We will definitely be back!

Working Title has been on my radar for quite some time but I don’t know why I never bothered trying their burgers before, and I’m pretty damn pissed with myself for not trying them earlier. Finally got the push I needed to head down and get my hands on one of these masterpieces because I saw that they were on Burpple Beyond and let me tell you this, if I try something on Burpple Beyond and after that say that I would pay full price for it, you know this shit be banging. Was skeptical about the duck burger but decided to YOLO and give it a go and hot damn it was a good YOLO. Idk what they did with the duck but the marinade was on point and it was wedged between two ultra crisp and fragrant charcoal buns that didn’t lose their texture even after I spent a solid 15 minutes snapping photos of my food (what a insta hoe I am). The fries just sealed the damn deal for me. They were THICCCCC and outrageously crispy yet the potato insides were oh-so-soft and fluffy, UGH. Will be back. I miss their burgers already.

The first time we visited this cafe when it just opened, we honestly were not impressed by the food and vowed not to patronise the place ever again. However, after chancing upon their 1-for-1 deal on Burpple, we decided to give them another chance. And we were glad we did! Got the Duck Confit and the Beef Cheek, both were not bad. Duck confit is a hard dish to execute so we were pretty surprised to find that the duck was well cooked and quite juicy. The beef cheek, on the other hand, was superb. It was fork-tender, broke apart easily and was dripping (literally) in juices. We don’t mind popping by again! .

Have been wanting to try this place out for almost a year now and we finally got the push we needed when we saw that they were on Burpple Beyond! They specialise in hearty British fare such as fish and chips, pastas etc. Got the Bangers & Mash ($17.90) and Carbonara Duck ($18.90) and sadly, we were quite disappointed. The Bangers & Mash were average and we found the sausage a tad bit too salty for our liking. The mash was all right and had a good creaminess to it, but if you don’t like lumpy mash, this isn’t for you. The duck pasta in our opinion, even after the Burpple 1-for-1 deal, was completely not worth it. You can easily make a plate of this at home yourself for less than $7. The pasta sauce tasted like it came from a jar and the pasta wasn’t cooked to a nice al dente. The duck slices were okay but they honestly didn’t add much value to the dish. Went back later on to read the reviews and realised we weren’t the only disappointed patrons and they seemed to be consistently pushing out subpar plates of food. What a waste. The staff, however, were very friendly and nice, which is pretty much the only plus point of the experience. We hope they buck up soon and the food quality will improve if we ever come back!

Subpar food, the meatball Mac and cheese wasn’t even Mac and cheese, it was Penne and cheese. Pasta was dry and not seasoned enough, it was rather bland. Eating the meatballs was like eating a mouthful of rock and salt. Disappointing because we read a lot of good reviews on this and were eager to try it. Not sure if this was a once off mistake, hopefully. The miso salmon was all right but could have been more tender. Sauce was good though. Props to one one of their service staff, we didn’t catch his name but he is a tall, skinny bespectacled boy. Very polite and efficient, great attention to detail. Cashier staff was very rude though. Very mixed feelings about this place, a shame because the ambience is lovely.

Second time here and it never disappoints! Tried the quinoa bowl with salmon and it’s a great choice for people who want something healthy and substantial. The papa joe burger is also really good and the beef was incredibly tender and packed full of umami. The place is in a library so it’s a great place to head to after studying!!
