The food here lived up to its expectations! Scallops were fresh and went really well with the Mentaiko on top - a perfect appetizer to our delicious beef bowls after!

The Burpple set includes 2 Truffle Sukiyaki rice bowls, 2 Mentaiko Scallop appetisers, and 2 drinks of your choice (Asahi or non-alcoholic drinks). All of this for $50 before GST - this came up to $58.85 after the 10% and 7%. Pretty worth it for good quality food.

Service was good. The restaurant is very spacious with both outdoor and indoor sitting available. Marina One is a really nice place with great views. We visited on a midweek evening and even though Marina One was quite empty, this restaurant was quite filled up! You can make reservations on Chope here.

This lived up to its expectations! The beef sukiyaki was so tender and my oh my, the fragrance of truffle was divine - surprisingly its taste was not strong at all despite smelling so, allowing us to savour the sweetness and saltiness of the beef while enjoying the subtle truffle accents accompanying it. The 62 °C egg tied everything together, making the rice bowl creamy and very palatable.

You can’t go wrong with mentaiko! A pretty simple gyudon but very tasty and satisfying for its price point with the Beyond 1-for-1 deal. Perfect for small to average eaters with its average serving size.

Mentaiko was creamy and salty, going well with the beef and onions which were sweet and savoury. Most importantly, for me personally, the beef was moist - its juices made the rice flavourful, and not too plain or dry. I tend to find many rice bowls quite dry, and usually have issues finishing the rice, but it wasn’t a problem for this one (though to be fair the rice wasn’t much). I liked the combination of textures - creamy mentaiko, chewy beef and crunchy tenkasu, generously lying atop a scoop of fragrant Japanese rice.

Overall a very satisfying meal - made even more affordable with the Beyond 1-for-1 deal. There’re actually waaaaaaaay (not an over-exaggeration really) more choices at the in-store menu than the ones on the Beyond menu, so do go down to the store to take a look at the options.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and easily got seats for the three of us - the top floor of the mall didn’t seem very populated at all when we went. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would come again with the deal. :)

I tend to find many rice bowls quite dry, and usually have issues finishing the rice, but it wasn’t a problem for this one (though to be fair the rice wasn’t much). I liked the contrast between the chewiness of the beef and the crunchiness of the tobiko and tenkasu.

Kafe Utu’s Pulled Pork Breakfast was a very strong tasting yet refreshing twist to the usual breakfast platters we’re used to. Familiar yet unfamiliar, the usual ingredients of pulled pork, avocado, potato hash and salsa were all spiced up for that extra flavour and kick of spice. I liked the house smoked bbq sauce, it was really tasty with the pulled pork shoulder.

The cafe was beautifully done up, you can tell a lot of thought has gone into each and every detail of its decor. I loved that the staff were also dressed in African-print clothes too. It’s great that they are quite serious about the whole African theme and are sticking to it. Though, it was a pity there was no African music playing in the background, that would’ve added the cherry on top.

We visited on a late Sunday morning and was lucky to get seats with no waiting time - we saw a little bit of a queue as we were leaving in the early afternoon. Best come a little earlier to avoid having to wait in the hot sun. Cafe is dog-friendly too with a few seats outside.

This is an East African spiced coconut bean stew that was super filling and extremely flavourful! Spices were quite strong (could be a little bit spicy for those with a lower spice tolerance) but its heat was softened with coconut cream, as well as the accompanying paneer and egg. It was really delicious and reminded me of a cross between curry and chilli con carne.

The large amount of beans made the dish very substantial, I couldn’t finish it on my own. You can choose to pay more to add smoked pork sausage and bacon to the dish too.

Overall - a pretty good pick if you’re feeling something spicy but want something a little bit different. Of course, if you like curry and chilli con carne, this is definitely something you should try!

And I was like, damn right, it’s better than many places I’ve ever eaten at. 😍

Thank you Burpple for having Breadyard on Beyond 1-for-1 deals, without it I wouldn’t have discovered this amazing place! Usually I’d scroll through Beyond partners to get some inspiration as to where to go or what to eat, so I was lucky I chanced upon this wonderful gem. And what better than to enjoy such amazing food at such affordable prices?

On both the occasions I’ve had brunches here, none of them disappointed, and I’ve always found myself wanting to come back again. Ingredients were so fresh and food was delicious! I liked the atmosphere of the cafe - high ceilings, wooden tables, natural lighting (makes your pictures look goooooood).

So thank you Burpple for giving me a new hobby of scrolling through food (instead of my social media) and bringing me on so many wonderful foodie adventures that don’t take too much of a toll on my wallet. Without you, I’d be twice as broke (thanks to the 1-for-1 deals). And thanks for bringing me to Breadyard, it was good.

Oh wow, I never knew tofu could be so soft, smooth and silky! It had such a soothing mouthfeel. The soup was really very very flavourful, and not spicy at all really. I enjoyed this very much.

We visited on a weekday evening, and it was really packed - we had to wait for an hour in order to be seated. Perhaps because it was the last day we could dine out before Phase 2 Heightened Alert kicked in, hmm.

With the combo, it came with a main meat dish, hot stone rice, and side dishes (the usual korean sides). Pretty worth it as we were using the Fuzzie app which gave us 30% off.

Only downside was that because it was so busy, the side dishes ran out really quickly and we couldn’t get anymore kimchi or seaweed (the side dishes which were refillable). I also sensed that the staff were quite stressed and slightly irritable, they tried their best to ignore me whenever I tried to call them. When they reluctantly came over to take our requests, we only got our requests fulfilled maybe half of the time despite them saying they’d get to it. They weren’t rude though, despite the peak rush period stresses, at least there’s that.

Service aside, food was really good, and that’s the most important part for me! 🥳

This was amazing. The chicken was grilled to perfection and the spicy sauce complemented it really nicely. I liked that it was grilled to crispiness on the outside, while the meat remains really tender on the inside. Tastewise, it was a delicious combination of slightly charred, smoky, salty and spicy. In case you’re worried, it’s not really very spicy, more of a mild level of hotness.

Take your pick from Spice Levels 0-10 - we picked Level 1 to be safe as my friend doesn’t take too spicy. If you want to challenge yourself, feel free to pick the higher levels! I’ve read that the highest level induces lots of numbness! Now moving on to the review of our safe Level 1 which we tried…

The soup was super thick and flavourful, actually didn’t really taste much like Tom Yam at all, maybe because we picked a low spice level? The peanuts taste in the soup was strong, making the soup quite sweet. Even though it didn’t taste like tomyam, it was still yummy. The egg noodles were quite standard.

We visited on a weekday evening and there was no queue for takeaways. I think it’s very worth it with the Burpple 1-for-1 deal - you get to pick an appetizer, a main, and a drink. Do note that this deal is only applicable Sun-Thurs and there’re extra charges for the takeaway boxes (30c each).

A toastie packed with flavour - beef pastrami, dijonnaise, roasted bell peppers, Swiss cheese and mozzarella - sandwiched between crispy toasted bread. All toasties come with salted potato chips and a pickle on the side.

I quite enjoyed the toastie, being a fan of mustard, as the taste of Dijon mustard came out quite strong, but went really well with the salty meaty beef pastrami and cheese. Unfortunately the roasted bell peppers were quite overpowered by its accompanying strong tasting ingredients. The potato chips were slightly too salty for my liking.

Overall - pretty good toastie. Wish it was slightly bigger given the price, but still not a bad choice if you’re around the area and are looking for a decent toastie takeaway.

Loved the vibes of the shop - a barber inside and a takeaway coffee/food counter by the doorway. You might just walk right past it thinking it’s just a barber shop without realizing that it serves great coffee and food too! It’s hidden within Hounds of The Baskervilles Barber Shop and have limited seating available.

We visited on a Saturday late morning and it wasn’t too busy, probably waited about 10-15 minutes for our toastie to be served. Staff were friendly.

Just your classic burger done right - natural grass-fed beef patty with oak lettuce, tomato and red onion, sandwiched between two fragrant butter buns. A no frills burger that hits all the right spots! Every ingredient here tasted very fresh.

We got this as part of a lunch set, where you get a burger and a drink for $15. It’s available on weekdays 11am to 6pm.

What we liked about the burgers here was that they were all very tasty without being greasy! Everything was very clean, fresh, and well executed.

We visited on a weekday early afternoon and it was quite empty! The crowd came in during peak lunchtime and the seats filled up pretty quickly. Would recommend you to reserve seats if you want to guarantee your place here. Staff here were friendly and helpful.
