Tofu never looked so exciting to eat! Fried tofu egg cake adorned with lots of grated peanuts and sweet spicy soy - tasted like rojak but with tofu. I loved that the outside was crunchy with its fried skin, and the inside was soft tofu.

Great for sharing as it is quite big and strong tasting. It was also something sweet to alternate with the other spicy dishes we ordered, as this one wasn’t really spicy at all.

We visited on a weekday lunchtime and there was quite a bit of a queue even though we were slightly early. Fortunately we were just two people so we managed to get seats. Towards the peak lunch hour, there were already people standing around and waiting for seats.

Not too bad to try if you’re around the area and craving for Indonesian food.

Karaage was deep fried till golden and crisp. It was really tasty with the spicy sauce which tasted similar to sriracha sauce - creamy and spicy, spicier than we expected actually (which was a good thing to us). Bowl was easy to hold and eat on the go!

Thank you Burpple for the media invite!

The grilled cheese sandwich was pretty on point. Bread was fried crisp on the outside, yet still chewy and substantial on the inside. In between the two thick slices of bread, you have a good amount of torched cheese, which makes a great cheese pull for the ‘gram. I enjoyed the sandwich, it was a convenient eat at a fair like Artbox, where you can walk and savour the yummy grilled cheese sandwich easily - they cut it into finger food sized pieces!

The Frozen Mango Margherita was a great accompaniment to the otherwise salty and savoury sandwich, with its cold, refreshing sweetness. Had a small piece of mango at the bottom of the cup as well. Worth it with the 1-for-1 deal.

Thank you Burpple for the media invite!

There were supposed to be 12 different flavours, but for some reason half of them weren’t available which was kind of a bummer, seeing that we visited on a Saturday evening and were their first customers of the day. They gave us one extra dumpling to make up for it.

The dumplings were strong tasting and flavourful, I really liked dipping them in the salsa and sour cream. The skin is thick so they filled us up pretty quickly.

The set also comes with 2 drinks, a main and salad/soup “of your choice” - but they told us we could only have Borscht soup for the salad/soup option and Zharkoe (Pork Stew) for the main - which were essentially two soups. Not sure if you’re just not allowed to choose or everything in their menu is unavailable. The deal says “of your choice” under each section so I’m just going to assume the latter. But yeah, another bummer! Without Burpple, this set is $32.

The couple running the store was very friendly, came to our table and talked to us a little about the food and their stall. Overall it was not bad an experience, other than the lack of choice (which was promised in the deal). Good to try once but I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to visit their store again.

The dumpling skin was so soft and silky, and the meat fillings so juicy and fragrant! Along with the slight spiciness of the chilli oil and sourness from the vinegar, this dish made my tastebuds very happy. It effectively fulfilled both my dumpling and spicy food cravings at once.

We visited on an early evening on Sunday, which was slightly before the peak dinner crowd. Waited about 30 minutes for this, which was acceptable I guess. Any longer would probably be a no for me. There isn’t any sort of automated queue system so you would have to stand to queue until you reach your turn to place an order.

This plate of char kway teow is surprisingly “healthy” tasting..? The flavours weren’t heavy on the lard. It wasn’t very salty or oily either, though you can still taste the wok hey. I guess you sacrifice tastiness for healthy eating - though I think I still prefer my char kway teow much more flavourful and unavoidably more unhealthy. After all, it is a sinful dish to begin with, so why not indulge yourself while you’re at it?

We visited on a Sunday in the early evening (slightly before the peak dinner crowd) and there wasn’t too much of a queue or wait which was honestly the biggest draw for us!

Do you like fried mantou? Do you like xiao long bao? If your answer is yes to both, then you absolutely must try these fried buns. I loved that the outside of the bun is slightly crisp, and the bottom is pan fried till golden. Better yet - the bun still retains its softness on the inside. I also thought that the sesame seeds on top really added a great fragrance to the pastry. And of course we have the tasty broth that oozes out when you bite through the bao. Overall a very satisfying dish!

We visited on an early evening on Sunday, which was slightly before the peak dinner crowd. I enjoyed the buns very much however the 70 minute wait was a little too long for my liking. I’m happy that I tried it but I don’t think I would wait 70 minutes for buns again. It helps that the store provides you the automatic queue beepers that sound and vibrate whenever the food is ready, so at least we could find some seats to sit down while waiting.

An old school pau shop - taste and standard wise I would think pretty normal (we tried char siew bao, da bao, and siew mai) but somehow there’s something about these paus that make them so irreplaceably nostalgic! Perhaps receiving them all packed into a plain cardboard box also plays a part in its exuding of old school vibes.

Think old school places like these may reduce in number over time, so I treasure my every visit here.

A standard bowl of Hei Mee. Flavourful broth with springy yellow noodles, a classic no frills hawker dish done well. Prawns were fresh too.

Not too long of a queue and wait on a weekday morning, which was nice as we were hungry!

Cravings for fries: Satisfied! ✅ Super sinful, crispy fries with with salty toppings of your choice. It’s perfect if you’re really craving for some savoury comfort food. Its saltiness was very addictive, I think I couldn’t stop after my first one, and I ate until my tongue and the roof of my mouth hurt. 😂

Great for sharing as well, the bowl is huge. It is definitely wallet friendly with the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal, and they allow you to pick different flavours for each bowl. Do note the shop is only for takeaways only.

Fairly average Taiwanese food for a food court standard. However with the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal, it’s really a steal - you wouldn’t be able to get such food at half of the $6.80 pricing. Definitely would be my go-to meal if I’m around the area and looking to fill my tummy while saving money.

Do note that only cash is allowed, so come prepared. The Kopitiam card is not accepted here as that gives you another 10% off.

The dory fillet was fried till crisp and delicious, I didn’t even need any sauces to accompany it. The sambal was good too though - it had a good level of spice for a nice kick but not overwhelmingly too hot for the average Singaporean tastebuds. I liked that it was thoughtfully packed separately from the rest of the meal. Rice was fragrant too.

I think everything in the box came together well, and it was overall a pleasant meal. The shop is a takeaway stand at the basement of AMK Hub, so there’re no seats for dine in. With the Burpple Beyond meal, it’s really a steal. I’ll definitely be back to use up all my 1-for-1 deals here!
