Had high expectations for this place. Wanted to try one of their beef bowls but all sold out. So I got the truffle butadon. Meat was pretty tough and hard to chew. Rice was rather clumpy and hard. Marinades were good though, I can see potential.

Amoy has a lot of more modern food from young hawkers and this is one of them. Tbh wasn’t expecting much but eh not bad sia. I got the salmon Wagyu combi and Wah, I was expecting either one or both of the proteins to be dry but no leh. The Wagyu beef was extremely tender and juicy. A little under marinated but this was necessary because the mentaiko sauce it was slathered in was already quite gao. The salmon also was very tender, felt like a sous vide texture. This also came with blue rice (for the lagoon feelz) and I liked it. Price point is very steep for hawker food ($16) but idm eating it again lah if I’m feeling rich.

Gourmet burgers from a hawker stall are becoming a more common sight, and one of the newer ones in the market is Ashes Burnnit.

We chanced upon them at their Alexandra Village Food Centre outlet, which was a surprise because we always thought that they were only at Golden Mile Food Centre.

Got the Ashes Smash Cheese Burger ($5.90 for single patty, $8.40 for double patty) which came with a handcrafted beef patty, American cheese, lettuce, fried shallots and their signature sauce that were wedged between 2 very fluffy charcoal buns. We really liked the beef patty which was juicy and well marinated, but the buns were a little too thicc for our liking and they overwhelmed the other components. Overall, however, it’s still a decent burger for the price point! We definitely will be back to try their other offerings.
