The army stew was rather thin and light tasting, similar to the type of soup you’d get in instant noodles. I was expecting a heavier, stronger tasting one. It’s still overall an okay tasting soup though, if you think of it just as a fancy instant noodle soup of some sort. Could do with more of them thicker chunkier spam instead of thinly sliced ham too. The stews comes with a small bowl of rice as well by default but feel free to pay more for additional noodles.

As part of the Burpple deal, you get a drink (choice between canned coke or canned ice lemon tea) and an ice cream (melona, supposedly).
But the owner didn’t tell us when we were ordering that there was no more ice cream, so only after we’ve paid and finished our meal that he told us there was no ice cream left and offered to give us a can drink in replacement. Which was SO not worth it btw, but honestly what can we say!? We’ve already paid - my opinion is that he should’ve checked and made sure we were okay with the replacement before he took our payment. Otherwise, the staff was actually quite nice.

We visited on a Thursday evening and there were not many patrons. It was easy enough to get a seat although the shop is small with limited capacity - a table for 4 and a counter-facing table for 2-3. Wouldn’t be suitable for big groups.
In conclusion an alright choice for the price and location only after the Burpple deal. Would only get it if I happen to be around the area and am craving for some Korean stew but don’t want to pay too much for restaurant prices.

Quite the typical Taiwanese rice dish, everything tasted pretty normal. You order a Taiwanese dish at the food court and this is what you get. I think the braised pork could be braised longer to become more tender and flavourful but I think the current standard that it is is good enough for the convenience you get at the food court.

Definitely extremely reasonably priced with the Burpple 1-for-1 deal, it’s difficult to get cheap food in malls nowadays. We visited on a weekday to redeem the deal. They didn’t charge extra for takeaway so that was convenient for us.

Bean paste was quite strong tasting, although the stew was more towards a thinner consistency. There was a fair amount of ingredients in the stew, and we added some tofu noodles as well at an additional charge. The tofu noodles were actually just long strips of tofu skin, which was an interesting idea but I personally felt it didn’t feel like noodles at all.

A classic fried chicken thigh, topped with cheddar cheese, coleslaw, honey mustard mayo in a brioche bun.

I would’ve actually said that this is a quite a delicious chicken burger BUT the fried chicken thigh was small - significantly smaller than the brioche bun itself. That’s such a huge disappointment for a burger! I personally also would’ve liked it more if the chicken thigh was slightly oilier so that it would be much tastier.

I think overall it’s still a pretty nice chicken burger, and definitely a great pick for the price point after the 25% off Burpple Beyond discount.

It was worth a try seeing that the place was fairly talked about for a period of time - but I doubt I would be back, unless either the quality and taste of food steps up or the price goes down. I find that it’s stuck in a vague middle ground where I’d rather go for something cheaper or something tastier. Especially being in a competitive mall like Funan where there are so many other food options!

We visited on a weekend evening and there were many seats available. The ambience is very much like your usual fast food chain.

Pretty solid Japanese curry, accompanied with carrots, potatoes and chicken karaage. Comforting for a cold day. We really enjoyed the chicken karaage, they deep fry it right on the spot before serving so it’s very freshly cooked!

Serving size is slightly on the smaller side but worth it for the price after Burpple 1-for-1 and also for its standard. Presentation-wise I found the mini tray and all very cute! Do note that you’ve to pay an additional charge for changing rice to udon, as this is originally a rice dish.

Not too bad with the Burpple deal especially in the CBD area where food can be quite pricey. You’ve to also get a drink along with the main dish if you want to use the deal.

Service was good. We visited on a weekday evening and managed to find seats for two quite comfortably.

Would I be back? Yes - only with the 1-for-1 deal!

This was delicious! I love that the rice was seasoned with furikake, it made the rice bowl extra tasty.

Quite a standard burger, overall I would say it’s slightly above average in taste but definitely a great pick for the price point after the 25% off Burpple Beyond discount.

The ground beef patty was actually a good balance of oily/tasty and dry/healthy, if you get what I mean. It definitely wasn’t oozing and dripping, but it wasn’t dead dry and tough either. Complementing it was the shop’s secret Wolf sauce (every burger shop seems to always have their own secret sauce), cheddar, sautéed onions, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. All of this goodness packed between two sesame seed brioche buns.

Salmon was good - slightly crispy on the edges and tender on the inside. I really appreciated that there was not one, but two slices of it! Tofu and salad were pretty fine sides. The whole bento tastewise is great for the price you pay.

Overall - worth it with the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal! And guess what, there was no GST charged. With such amazing prices, I can see myself coming back again.

We visited on a midweek evening and surprisingly this place can get quite bustling! Fortunately we came slightly earlier and managed to get a seat for two. Service is great, the staff are all quite friendly. I like the mobile ordering system here, it was easy to use and convenient.

A very satisfying bowl! The beef strips and fish skin crisps were really tasty and the creamy onsen egg just tied everything together beautifully. Yum. I wouldn’t classify this as a healthy rice bowl since well, it didn’t come in a bowl and there weren’t any veggies. It’s definitely a guilty pleasure though.

The Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 set also comes with miso soup and a drink. The miso soup was average, didn’t have any ingredients in it. We had a choice between canned coke or ice lemon tea for the drinks.

Overall - with the Burpple deal, this is an affordable and delicious choice for the Tanjong Pagar area. We visited on a weekday evening and managed to get seats for two. There is a small seating area in the shop, but we noticed most customers were getting takeaways, so seats were easy to get. Service was great too.

The egg mayo sandwich was rather dry, and the bread was tough, but still not bad tasting. The hashbrowns were pretty good. The set also comes with an oatmilk latte. For two sets of this, $10.90 is a reasonable price!

I visited on a weekday morning - there was a little bit of a queue and everything took about 20 minutes (including waiting for food) so that was a little bit inconvenient if you’re planning to have a quick bite before work. The staff were very nice though.

Essentially braised pork rice / lu rou fan - but change the rice to ramen. And instead of ramen broth, you have thick braised pork soy sauce gravy. Dish was super flavourful, definitely more towards the salty side but in a good way.

I’ve never really seen braised pork with ramen before so this was a very welcomed change, since I’ve always been more of a noodles person than a rice person. Heheh.

The food was served really quickly and that was great. Staff were friendly. We managed to get seats for two pretty easily on a weekday evening!

A standard bowl of chicken mee sua, pretty yummy. I liked that they were quite generous with the shredded chicken!
