Smoked salmon eggs benedict:
- poached eggs were perfectly cooked
- hollandaise sauce was super tasty and not cloying
- this should be the minimum standard for an eggs benedict

Pumpkin latte:
- a decent cup but not something to shout about

Ambience+service were great. The servers were very polite and helpful. Would definitely visit again to try other dishes!

Wagyu beef omurice:
- beef had an amazing bite to it
- eggs were perfectly cooked and were soft and silky
- sauce was not to my liking but it went well with the rice and egg

Tonkatsu black curry:
- pork loin cutlet was well-breaded and fried, even the last piece that had sat in the sauce was still crispy
- black curry looked interesting. It was very flavourful and tasted absolutely delicious with the rice (I think it's a Japanese rice they used but I cannot remember the name)

Salmon soup:
- only 10 bowls a day!
- absolutely delicious, tasted very homely. Had a very sweet taste (they added Hokkaido milk) and the ingredients were fresh and well-cooked

Service:
- the server was polite and answered our queries patiently
- our food came to our table very quickly

Overall, Biseryu has great food with generous portions and a comfortable environment. Extremely worth it and I would definitely come back again.

The last time I tried Alter Ego was 2 years ago, and I still remembered that the food was decent back then. However, not only did my dinner last night not meet expectations, it was hands-down the worst meal I've had in recent times. It was so bad that I just had to write this review as an act of service to everyone else considering to eat here. DON'T!!!!
I haven't written many reviews even after 2 years of using Burpple Beyond. So the fact that I even bothered to write this review says a lot.

Seafood pasta:
- bland
- sauce was obviously canned sauce (and not a good one at that)
- seafood was chewy and definitely NOT fresh
- horrible sight to see the oil left behind at the end of my meal

Calamari:
- extremely oily
- rubbery and had no bite to it, almost choked on it
- unseasoned, no taste at all
- batter was flaky and did not stick to the squid
- sauce was generic

Service was terrible. We asked to shift to the tables outside because the music was too loud and the flickering Christmas lights gave us a headache. Server's first reply was simply "cannot". We asked why, her first excuse was "the tables are wet from the rain", but we knew they were not. Her second excuse was "we have reservations, all full." But at the end of our meal, the place was only 40% full.

Paid $36 for this nonsense.
My friend and I had to find another place for a second meal because this was so unsatisfying and made us feel sick after eating because of how oily the food was.

Don't waste your time, money or calories here.
Safe to say I will not be returning to Alter Ego ever again for the rest of my life.
