It was a rainy Friday evening and there was no one when we entered the shop. Very quiet place with nice piped in music. Ordered the premium ice cream - blue pea vanilla and roasted pistachio using 1-1 ($5.10 after discount). Added in a waffle at $5.90. Total payable was $11. The ice cream was a disappointment as it was very bland. The saving grace was the green waffles. They were warm and crispy. To get the crowd going, they need to improve on their ice cream ingredients. It’s a pity that they open till 2am yet are not able to draw in the crowd like other ice cream parlours. The dessert shop two doors away seem to be more vibrant with customers. Was initially excited about this new ice cream waffle late-closing joint in the East, unfortunately the OMO aunty serving us was not able to recommend or market their ice cream too. Thumbs up for waffles though!

This combo I have chosen cost $23. With the 1-1, the total cost is $30 as we ordered hazelnut cola and sour plum drink. There was no serving of water in this HDB setting. The cola is bitter, not as nice as can’t really taste the hazelnut. Didn’t realised it was a halal restaurant till we entered. For a weekday evening the crowd is quite good. The serving of the food is generous but the seasoning is not authentic how a Don is like in Japanese restaurants. Maybe the combo could not draw out the unique taste of chicken/beef. I usually love Japanese rice and will finish it all, but tonight I didn’t finish my bowl. Will not return if there’s no 1-1 as it is pricey in general (beef was not featherblade as advertised) and not exactly the taste which I expected. They should update their Burpple menu accordingly.

Bought the 1-1 pizza (10 inch/6 slices)for a picnic. Chose the American Salami and Hawaiian. This size is considered the smallest and costs $17.90 for one. I ordered additional nuggets and honey wings. With 5 pax for picnic, on average 1 pax ate 2 pizza slices, 2 nuggets and 2 wings. The portion is just right and so is the total cost of $37. The pizza though not oven baked were freshly baked when we placed our order. Not thin crust but comparable with Pizza Hut. The restaurant seems empty without sit-in diners. However, during the 15 mins wait, I saw a number of people there for takeaways. The promo without Burpple is 50% off 2nd pizza. Still a good deal, go support this local business if you can. Note that the carpark at Rock Wall is closed. Park at NTUC side and it’s not too far a walk from there.

This small bowl plus a cute bottle of cold tea is $10. The portion is just nice as this was our dessert. With the Burpple Beyond app it is definitely worth it for 2 sets. They use the Thermomix machine for their Acai, which is impressive. However, as there’s only one server, we had to wait for our turn to be served (about 10 mins) and there was no buzzer to alert us. Although it’s located at the front of the entrance in a little corner, you won’t really notice its presence. But we see a steady stream of teenagers coming to buy. Even the cleaning lady commented that she she likes it when she sees us eating it.

This new gelato place took over the former OCD. Business was brisk, with customers walking in every 15mins on a Thursday night. Used 1-1 to get Coffee and Waffle free. We topped up 2 scoops of ice cream, added 1 cup of gelato and a pot of tea. Total cost = $31.50 and also received a number of stamps for future visits. Seldom people drink beer with waffles, but they were selling it, not sure why especially now that no drinking is allowed after 1030pm. Wished the teapot could have been larger and lighter.

Back here second time cuz first experience was pleasant. The 250g seemed value for money with 1-1. Could choose truffle fries or mashed potato. The steak was more rare than medium rare. Had to do a bit of chewing. Maybe better if they put a sizzling plate. Waited third in Q on a Friday night. Was quite a fast turnover as they opened upstairs. Toilet is not well maintained. May not go back for sometime as standard has dropped by a little. The stretch of shophouses have a wider variety to choose from.

This place is awesome. My usual order is the herbal jelly with mango. The mango is super sweet and the herbal jelly super cooling. With 1-1, I pay only $4.80 for two bowls. Still crowded at 9 plus. The table seating upstairs before placing order can be improved. Went home with a satisfied tummy!

Wanted to try the extraordinary folded pizza. It was priced at $28 with mushrooms and pork sausages. Was really big and had to pack a portion home. Was tasty, not too dry. The serving of appetiser bread was only one set and was chargeable for the second. Total bill of one pasta, one calzone, one gelato milkshake and wine cost $51.80 with 1-1 Burpple. Indoors was full. We sat outside and ambience was great. Was told by the waitress that they are ending the 1-1 deal with Burpple on 31 March as they are focusing on Entertainer. What a waste!

This little gem at Telok Kurau is an ideal place for furballs. Most will do al fresco dining. We were there cuz of 1-1 deals and realised that we were the only tables without a dog. The servers are young and friendly, serving the dogs with water too. Must try their Nutella shake, not too sweet and comes with a nice Nutella bottle. For tea, you can choose 3 types of blends yourself. For food, we had 4 pasta and 1 bread for 5 pax at $81.80. Their pasta was good! Pictured here is Tom Yum Vongole with generous serving of clams at the right level of spiciness. Seated outside al fresco style is a great way to watch the world go by on a lazy Sunday morning. Will be back, this time with our furkid.

Friendliest staff here. With 1-1, we ordered one prawn and another beef (plus two cokes and miso soup) for $16.80. Between the two, the beef is preferred. Break the onsen egg and have the yolk drizzled on the beef... the taste was heavenly! The rice was good Jap rice and at the side they served with crispy fish skin. The place is small and packed with customers even at 2pm on a weekend. Go support them, they deserve all the attention, as the cafe is way underrated.

The lamb chops were not on Burpple 1-1, but couldn’t resist eating them. Rocket salad is generous. You can choose what gravy to go with your lamb chops. My second time back and the food here can’t go wrong. Call to book in advance cuz weekend is packed. Weekdays during lunch is still fine.

Read that it’s a fast food chain with only one server and ordering online is encouraged. As we had our orders planned out, and there were few customers, we requested to place order with the server. Total bill for 3 burgers, 1 wrap, 4 drinks and 3 sides were about $82 and we had 25% discount via Burpple. I chose the dry-aged burger (prob the most ex on the menu) medium rare and it was super good! Patty a little on the thinner side but it was yummy! For the drinks at $3, more worth it to choose from fountain instead of the canned.
