$10.90 for 2 half waffles (technically 1 full waffle) and 2 scoops of ice cream (which we paid $2 extra for 1 unique flavours). We got vanilla ice cream which was ordinary, and peanut butter and chocolate chips which a very unique flavour and taste! The waffles on the other hand were FANTASTIC!! The waffles were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and were made to perfection!! Will totally come back for more! :)

So, we decided to take the risk and celebrate our Valentine’s Day at this place that had not a single dinner review. However, the quality of the food and dining experience easily exceeded both our expectations.

This is a cosy little French patisserie-turned-restaurant just next to Hwa Chong. The French onion soup is by far the best and closest in standard to the one I’ve tried in La Jacobine, Paris. I must say that the chicken was also really well-marinated and tasty. It was served with Potato gratin. And for desert, while the mousse was slightly too sweet for me, the brownie/ice cream was amazing.

Well, the restaurant seemed a little understaffed as they only had 1 waiter that evening, but nonetheless, he coped really well with all the other customers’ demands, and was also really friendly. He even offered us a loaf from the bakery to bring home!

It was definitely a pleasant evening at Choupinette and was not too expensive (~$70+ after taxes), after burpple 1 for 1, for two sets of 3-course. So for those who have been waiting for a review, here’s your green light!

Highly recommend. Although food isn’t mind-blowing, this place deserves a second visit for its price!!

Love the Rosti & bacon, the shrooms & salad were awesome too!! Good coffee and chai latte :-)
Avoid mealtimes to avoid crowd. Or be prepared to wait.

Disclaimer: I came with expectations since this is one of the trending coffees in Sg for the last couple of weeks to months.

Coffee is in the cafe’s name but honestly, the $5 cafe latte I had was mediocre. Coffee could have been more aromatic.

Food portion is a little on the smaller side too. Gashouse egg was honestly quite disappointing. Sure, eggs, cheese and toast, what can go wrong? Exactly. It tasted like something I could have made myself at home.

Carbonara was good though.

$26 altogether for 2 mains and 2 coffees.

Ordered the Cod fish and chips. The battered was a bit thick and the cod fish was quite dry, probably not the best dish to order. The sides were good and the tartar sauce was nice. It can be quite gelat but still a hearty meal, though, I highly recommend the Pesto Fish. Ordered the battered mushrooms as well, its quite good too.

Ordered the Soft serve and Smores waffles. The thai milk tea ice cream was just right, not too sweet and the Hojicha for the soft serve waffles was light on the palette. Although it was hard tasting the flavour of Hojicha because other elements were much stronger tasting. The waffles were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Definitely worth coming down to give it a try!

Ordered Truffle Carbonara, Chilli Crab Pasta and Umami Prawn. The Truffle Carbonara can be quite surfeiting but the truffle flavour wasn't overbearing. There was a generous portion of crab meat in the Chili crab pasta and it's quite a straightforward dish. The umami prawn had quite a refreshing flavour. It was light yet flavourful. Quality food and i recommend the Umami Prawn.

Gotta say this is one of the best brunches I’ve had in SG. Love how every component in the dishes complement each other. Everyone knows eggs aren’t easy to master. But these eggs here are close to perfection. Just the right amount of wet & dry!

Would recommend.

Definitely worth it!! Portion was generous & view was good. Good ambience for a date night or special occasions definitely. Food: highly recommend the ravioli. One of the best mushroom soups & bread in Singapore. Pizza was also fire-oven baked. Portion was generous, and can dabao pizza home.
Only thing is, please make a reservation in advance. We made a reservation half a day in advance on a Friday and it’s definitely not enough. We were placed to sit at the bar and the crowd was quite rowdy. Then again, maybe we were just unlucky.

Well, we came to Thai’d me up only to realise Thai’d me up and Meat you here are the same company, and changed our minds from Thai to western.

Overall not a bad meal and is worth your $13.08 (incl GST). Chicken is charred (great) but a bit dry on the side. Sides (corn and coleslaw) was quite enjoyable though.

Note that you won’t be able to redeem a Burpple coupon from both Meat You Here and Thai’d Me Up in the same setting even though they’re listed on burpple as separate restaurants.

Enjoyed this dish a lot! Char siew had enough “char” and the rice was soft like the Japanese rice. I really liked the chicken rice garlic chilli that the restaurant provided at the side too. Service and ambience were both decent. Perhaps one of the better, if not best, char siew rice I’ve had in SG.
