Strongly recommend their Thai Tom Yum Seafood Pasta and After Morning Pizza! Very value for money with Burpple Beyond 1-1.

Ordered Oberworks ($21), the Original Rosti ($13) and a side of Jalapeño Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese ($8). Used Burpple 30% of mains which doesn’t cover add-on’s and sides. Rosti was seasoned well but a bit too oily and not as crispy for my liking. Quality was overall decent but if not for Burpple deals, I don’t think I would come as often because of the price. Would not order the mac and cheese again though as I felt there was nothing special about it and the cheese sauce tasted a little flat.

Introduced by my friend, it was my first time dining at South Union Park. Burpple’s 1-for-1 definitely made it much more affordable as the food there is generally quite pricey! We had Short Rib Ragu ($23) and Seared Prawn Mentaiko Tagliatelle ($23). The Seared Prawn Mentaiko Tagliatelle wasn’t super heavy on the mentaiko taste but instead was really savoury. For someone who isn’t a big fan of mentaiko and mayo, this pasta dish was suitable for my palate, delicious even! The Short Rib Ragu I felt paled in comparison. Although still umami tasting and they did give quite a decent portion of beef, I felt that the flavours could be elevated - maybe bringing out the beef flavours a little more. Ended off with Brownie with Salted Caramel Ice Cream ($11) which to be honest was nothing fantastic. Overall, not too bad. Would come back if I do have the means to spend a little more on food!

Typically not a fusion pasta girl but am back here at The Assembly Ground for Burpple’s 1-for-1 pasta deal and came out with a happy belly! Not sure what exactly is in the sauce (kind of taste like there’s some oyster sauce working in there), but I really love the savoury and umami sauce that’s coating the linguine for the Tempura Mentaiko. The fusion flavours really worked for that one! The Umami Prawn was not too bad too with their really juicy and succulent prawns. However, it’s not my favourite and I felt like perhaps the other seafood pastas might be more worth for the price. Will be back to try out the rest of the pastas in time to come. (:

Always eating.
