my dad has always wanted to try this place & we finally got to try it! i was honestly super surprised by the quality of food, service & vibe at this hidden place - they were all TOP quality. i got the ๐‡๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ฒ ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ซ๐ซ๐ž๐ ๐œ๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ง (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ—++), which was so tender and juicy ๐Ÿคค the sweet potato fries were also ๐Ÿ’ฏ - super nicely crisped! my dad got the ๐’๐จ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐ฏ๐ข๐๐ž ๐š๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ซ๐ข๐› ๐ž๐ฒ๐ž (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–++), which was tender & flavourful as well. my fav fav part about all their dishes is that they donโ€™t coat their dishes in sauces but the meat cuts are grilled to perfection & served just as they are. we used the burpple deal, so we had to get a mock tail each. from L to R: ๐“๐š๐ง๐ ๐จ ๐›๐ž๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ, ๐๐ž๐š๐œ๐ก ๐›๐จ๐ญ๐ญ๐จ๐ฆ, ๐€๐ช๐ฎ๐š ๐ฆ๐š๐ซ๐ข๐ง๐ž, ๐๐ž๐ฐ ๐ก๐จ๐ซ๐ข๐ณ๐จ๐ง๐ฌ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ—-๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ++) my fav is the Aqua marine (love stuff with a tinge of lime). imo, skip the Tango berry bc it tastes just like fruit punch haha. but anw the vibe overall was super nice & service was ๐Ÿ‘ love love def wna come again ๐Ÿ’“

sry have been rly out of it bc exams ๐Ÿ˜ฉ but anw here is a nice exam break with some good oโ€™ribs ๐Ÿคค tried the ๐’๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ฒ ๐›๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ฌ ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ซ๐ข๐›๐ฌ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++) with Garlic BBQ sauce and ๐๐š๐›๐ฒ ๐›๐š๐œ๐ค ๐ซ๐ข๐›๐ฌ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ“.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++) with Hickory BBQ sauce. (both full slab!) the spare ribs had more meat & i think was more fatty & tender too. but tbh i would be sufficiently happy with the baby back, so prob would prob just order that next time. overall pretty decent, maybe a bit ex but super shiok tho!!

hidden in an industrial building just a short walk from paya lebar mrt, this place is a gem๐Ÿ’Ž . this place is generally famous for their bbq stuff bc they know how to grill โ€˜em. the ๐†๐ซ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ž๐ ๐ค๐ฎ๐ซ๐จ๐›๐ฎ๐ญ๐š ๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐ค (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++) was charred so perfectly - it was fatty and melts in your mouth. we also managed to try their weekend brunch menu and would recommend the ๐๐จ๐ญ๐š๐ญ๐จ ๐ซ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++) Say real though, everything is worth it with the entertainer 1-1. Good food, good vibe โ˜บ๏ธ

Not the most accessible location without a car, but I love this cafe bc itโ€™s chill and pets friendly! Pictured is their ๐’๐ฉ๐ข๐œ๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐๐ฒโ€™๐ฌ ๐œ๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ง (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ—.๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽ++) pasta that was filled with chicken breasts (so awesome for that protein need) with just a slight kick of spice. It kinda reminds me of a tom yum flavour though not exactly it, but anyway tastes great. Pasta is al dente as well which I love. Would love to try the other pastas here ๐Ÿคค

Sawasdee Tom Yum Pasta (SGD16.90++): The pasta was so flavourful with a seafood fragrance ๐Ÿ˜ It was a bit soft for me though as I prefer my pasta a little bit harder on the al dente side, but my mom loved it. Overall, very well done!
.
Generally, I would say that all of their food is pretty good. Other things ordered were the Signature chilli crab pasta (SGD17.90++) and the Smoked salmon cheese rosti (SGD16.90++) - they all tasted really good. My sister said that the rosti tasted even better than Marcheโ€™s one ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and the cheese just made it all the better ๐Ÿคฉ
.
Was just sliiiiightly disappointed at their gelato bc there werenโ€™t that many flavours available. Taste wise was kinda the same as many other ice cream places weโ€™ve been to. Their waffles (SGD6) was amazing though ๐Ÿฅฐ Crunch on the outside and soft on the inside. Definitely not the same as the other cafes!

Spinat fladen (~SGD20++): Quite a decent spinach flatbread for the veggies ๐Ÿฅฌ Nothing to scream about, but generally quite well done.
.
We also ordered the Salmon Rosti (~SGD19++) but I personally found it too oily. The chicken cheese sausage (~SGD20++) was alright tho. Personally, I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll come here for the food, but maybe the beer ๐Ÿป The place has a nice & chill vibe, so it would be good for drinks ๐Ÿ˜Š Oh also we used burpple 1-1 for this, so the price wasnโ€™t too bad after that.

Cajun chicken (~SGD19++): Quite a low profile cafe, but itโ€™s actually pretty good! Would say that overall the food is a bit salty, but I guess thatโ€™s what makes it tasty ๐Ÿ˜› Chicken was tender and the mushroom sauce on it went well with it too. The vibe of the cafe is cute as well (science lab test tubes and beakers as utensils) and the lunch promo is not bad at all. Ate here with the burpple promo but even without burpple, it is definitely worth. ๐Ÿ‘
