$10 is a special & cheaper price with Burp’s affordable takeaway/delivery menu during the Covid-19 Heightened Alert. The usual price as indicated in their menu is $14.

I have always wanted to try Burp and it really took me a pandemic to finally get a taste of their food. With their special takeaway menu, their food becomes doubly affordable on top of their extremely wallet-friendly delivery prices. You would only have to hit a $30 minimum fee for delivery (which can be easily fulfilled with a meal for 2).

This spicy buffalo wings took me by surprise. Albeit delivered, it remained adequately crispy as it was lathered with buffalo sauce. I never thought spicy buffalo wings would live up to its name of being REALLY spicy. I’ve had a number which just tasted oddly sour with a tinge of sweetness. However, this really packed a spicy kick which elevated the flavour of your usual buffalo wings - even those that claim to be ‘spicy’. The side of lime mayo dip is an amazing complement for the wings, giving of a pleasant, creamy finish.

For the price, this burger was decent - perhaps even surpassing the expectations one may have for a cafe-standard burger at $10! The brioche bun was a tad crisp, and the beef patty was juicy enough for me not to be disappointed. Plus points for the caramelised onions! The only gripe I have - which is really more a problem than Burp’s, is that I wished I had an options for fries on the side rather than chips.

Their smoked salmon carbonara is definitely no authentic Italian carbonara. Rather, it may be described as the typical ‘Singaporean’ carbonara you grew up eating as a kid, thinking it is some form of cream based pasta. Then again, managing expectations, this is exactly the kind of carbonara one is likely to get in Singapore when not in an Italian restaurant.
Nonetheless, this ‘carbonara’ was a well-textured, smooth pasta that packs a really creamy punch - for the creamy pasta lovers. I enjoyed it because it was not only flavourful, the amounts of bacon and smoked salmon was extremely generous. In fact, I think the portion is very worth the buck. The creaminess thus fused well with the saltiness of both bacon and smoked salmon, which really reduced the propensity for one to get sick of the dish fast. In addition, the gravy-like cream surrounding which doused the pasta ensured an experience of slurpy goodness. For $12 and free delivery, this was worth it!

Honestly... this fell short of expectations :( the plating was absolutely beautiful and portion was generous, but taste and quality did not add up much to it. The butterfly pea rice was a tad dry, the beef cheek wasn’t as tender and extremely fatty (to me). Wouldn’t come back here for it, but it’s overall a small, classy cafe that one can sit here for coffee!

I was actually taken aback by this! I was afraid to order because I was worried that it would be like how some chilli crab gravies are — too sweet; I prefer a spicier sauce. Yet, this dish surprised me with their spicier over sweet combination. A good experience, but the thing with crab meat pasta dishes is that the flakes of crab meat will invariably seem unsubstantial :( which makes it feel like it isn’t that worth it. Nonetheless I do think it’s worth a try.

This was a decent plate of croque-madame. Runny egg yolk, toasted brioche with cheese and ham, all coming together well. However, it was definitely on the oilier side and it felt very heavy after that. Great ambience but very pricey for such a brunch.

Egg was runny when cut, but there was ham inside which kinda ruined it because of its texture. Just like a normal breakfast set with different ingredients combined. Wasn’t a fan of the turkey bacon.

This thin-crusted pizza was decent. The three types of meat were spicy chicken sausage, pork sausage and bacon. Couldn’t really make out the flavour of this dish, was pretty much just slightly sour from the tomatoes, spicy because of the meats and that was it. With mozzarella and parmigiana cheese, there was a cheesy finish to the pizza which was quite nice. Nonetheless, the pizza was pretty small for the price and I’m not sure I would come back for it.

Wagyu beef bowl which was really healthy - with wagyu beef slices, sautéed mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, kale, rice and truffle shoyu sauce. Would have appreciated a bit more of the sauce as it was not enough to cover the whole bowl of rice, as some parts of the rice were left tasteless. The beef was also pretty tough, while it looked pretty good, there was a lot of fat on the beef as well. And there wasn’t much flavour in the beef itself, which was why the lack of truffle shoyu sauce really undermined the whole dish. The best this dish could really do was to provide more of the shoyu sauce! The pretzel biscuit was a nice addition but really hard. I guess I was overexcited and overhyped by this dish, and it really fell short of expectations. But it was nonetheless still ordinary and a good try, especially because presentation wise it looked really great. I guess I did enjoy the taste of the rice with the sauce and the mushrooms more than the tough beef. Would give their other food a try because it looks good too!

Forever my go-to meal at refuel because when I am there I lose all sense of adventure, give in to vulnerability, and retreat back into my comfort zone to enjoy a plate of spicy, creamy pasta that I’m sure wouldn’t disappoint. I have to admit, the spiciness level has dropped, which made me a little sad, but I made that up with Tabasco so alls good. But I always appreciate the authenticity to its taste, light but creamy (you won’t get sick of it!), spicy but not the common tomyam taste you’d get from other fusion pastas. With a generous amount of seafood - fresh prawns and mussels, this pasta is an alternative take on tomyam pastas, as it still gives a spicy kick!🌶

The last time I ate this was before they revamped their menu. While I always believe a menu upgrade would elevate the experience, this dish fell short of expectations. They now use penne instead of macaroni, which is really odd because it is called macaroni & cheese for a reason.. I also feel like penne did not properly encapsulate the taste of the three cheeses they pride themselves on. They now add zucchini too, but placed them in large zucchini chunks, which was really out of place for this dish. Perhaps smaller slices would’ve sufficed. Nonetheless, the dish was adequately cheesy, and the base sauce was more bolognese, and there was a pretty generous amount of meat. However, the flavour got a little bit too salty at the end.

Another dish which was average, and actually slightly fell short of expectations because some reviews said it was really good. The batter didn’t have much of the beer battered flavour, so it pretty much felt like a fried fish fillet to me. Fries were crispy and seasoned well, so it was good though!
