The chye poh fries ๐ŸŸ charmed me with their subtle radish bits (tasted like the stuff in chee kueh) but could have used more radish to really sell its unique flavour.

The 10pc Har Cheong Drumlets ๐Ÿ— really impressed me with their crispy crumbs outside and tender interior. The prawn paste taste could be stronger but this was a good take on the classic har cheong gai!

If you're feeling adventurous, you can even add on to the set with kombu, umami, and Japanese curry mayo ๐ŸŒŠ to add some exciting dimension to your fries. I felt that the kombu was the best because it gave a hint of unique seaweed flavour that gave a more satisfying umami kick than the umami mayo itself.

Last but not least, the bundle is topped off with mala popcorn ๐Ÿฟ that isn't spicy but just peppered and flavoured to taste like mala sauce.

Taco feast bundle ($99) ๐ŸŒฎ 8/10

Believe me when I say this was a feast. This set includes: 12 Tacos + 2 boxes of Fries + 2 Sambal Mayo + 10pcs Har Cheong Drumlets + 2 Mala Homemade Popcorn!

Each taco was delightfully combined with Asian flavours at provided for an extremely satisfying and hearty meal. Pictured are the:

Ebi Fry Chilli Crab ๐Ÿค
Beef Pot Roast Taco ๐Ÿ„
Hoisin Duck Taco ๐Ÿฆ†
Vietnamese Cha Ca Cod Taco ๐ŸŸ
Nanban Chicken Taco ๐Ÿ”
Filipino Pork Soft Bone Sisig Taco ๐Ÿ–

I would say all of them taste really good -- the beef pot roast and cod were quite flavourful with the cod being quite spicy and exhillarating.

However, the nanban chicken tasted a bit strange with the chunks of chicken and achar, and the sisig was a bit too shredded and bland.

Firstly, the nachos took at least 10 minutes after our food to come despite being the easiest to make and repeated reminders. Secondly, I wasn't too impressed either because the amount of cheese in this is lacking. We already ordered extra nacho cheese in the dish but all I could taste was crumbly feta.

This burrito had a reasonable amount of chicken inside but wasn't much to shout about. Quite enjoyable if you like a stuffed chicken burrito!

This taco boasts coffee-braised beef but the coffee taste wasnt very strong -- only a semblance of a slightly nutty and bitter flavour remained. Some of the meat chunks were very juicy and tender but the parts with tendons were quite chewy.

Had to wait more than 1h and the waitress kept 'forgetting' that I was in front of the queue but oh well, the food was good.

The ban me tacos was quite full of flavour. The stringy beef was quite tender and I appreciated the fried onions at the side. The feta cheese gave the taco a bit of a Mediterranean dimension but it all came together quite well.

Ceviche ($25) ๐Ÿ™ 7/10

The first spoon of this gave me a shocking perk-me-up with the sharpness of the refreshing citrus juices the seafood is marinated in. I couldn't get enough of the electrifying sauce and even poured it on my burrito afterwards.

Ceviche involves slightly cooking raw seafood by marinating it in a acidic sauce and I must say that the seafood was actually quite cooked as a result. However, it comprised of mainly octopus and shrimp -- it could do with more fish in my opinion.

Oh and sorry for the out of focus pic, I guess I was too excited to dig in ๐Ÿ˜…

Arroz con pollo ($26) ๐Ÿ— 9/10

Didn't have high expectations of chicken and rice but this was done perfectly in almost every single way! The chicken was beautifully charred, and well-marinated to the point that every mouthful involved smokey tenderness.

Surprisingly, the rice was the real show-stealer. The Mexican rice grains were firm but not hard, and individually coated with the tart and almost creamy sauce. I also particularly loved the zesty hits of crispy capers and mild onions that covered the dish.

Also, 1 for 1 with Burpple beyond!

Pork burrito ($20) ๐ŸŒฏ 7/10

The pork chunks were of a fatty cut that definitely provided richness to the burrito. However, compared two the previous two dishes, I found this the least interesting. The rice wasn't very flavourful and there weren't a lot of sauce in the burrito.

There ain't nothing 'poor' about this scrumptious burrito bowl -- not in the taste, nor the price HAHA. Luckily I had #burpplebeyond to help me with 30% off the ENTIRE MENU, including drinks!

The burrito bowl came with the galbi short rib, which was well-marinated with slightly-sweet Korean spices. The meat itself looked unassuming as it was only about 1-2cm thick and looked like normal braised pork belly. However, the slices were surprisingly tender to bite into!

Also had the Kimchi Carnitas Fries ($19) here again but I've raved about it before so I'll refrain from sounding like a broken record.

The pulled pork was adequately tender but the quesadilla could use more cheese imo. But whatever -- at this price, it's an absolute steal!

We ordered every one of the tacos they had except for mixed vegetables -- chimichurri chicken, spicy chipotle chicken, fish and mango salsa, avocado prawn, chili con carne, and BBQ pulled pork. They were all quite fresh but some were hits and misses. Our favourites were the chimichurri chicken for its charred taste, and chili con carne for that tasty beef.
