Cheeseburger @ $19.90

Great place with good food and awesome service!

Came on a Sunday afternoon for lunch and it was very quiet which is really nice and was able to chat much. The manager was very attentive and served us iced water when we were seated (the weather was very hot so iced water is very much appreciated). When we were done with the meal he also continued to top up our water without us asking.

Onto the food, this cheeseburger is not bad, but not sure if it's cuz I ordered medium well so it was a little dry.

Also had baby ribs ($24.90) which is nice and juicy. Both dishes came with fries and salad.
We asked for ketchup and chilli sauce and the manager also offered mayonnaise which is really awesome!

Drinks wise, we had classic milkshake ($7) but it was quite a small glass, and honey lemon ($4) which came in a pot.

Spent a total of $39.90 with burpple beyond, which is really a good deal!

Cornflake chicken @ $8

Was looking for a place to explore at the Woodlands Industrial Area and came across this, so decided to give it a try.

Might have been cuz there was certain expectations from the novelty, but the expectations are not being met. While the cornflakes do give a crunch to the chicken, the entire taste is actually quite bland and mild. Think can do with more seasoning for the chicken.

Quite reasonable in terms of pricing though. Might consider coming back to try the cheesy chicken cutlet but probably not so soon.

Pulled brisket burger ($7.50 for single patty)
Added $2.50 for cheese fries.

It's really tasty, the menu says the brisket has been cooked for 36 hours and I do believe it. No complaints there, hands down.

There's a reason why fork and knife are provided for. It's so juicy that the bottom burger is sooooo soggy and basically has disintegrated. There's no way it can be picked up by hand and it's kind of disappointing that the experience of eating a burger by hand is taken away from you.

Also, they mistook my order for takeaway and hence it came in this packaging and I wasnt able to take a photo of the frontal view with the meat.

But back to the taste, it's really good so will be back to try other flavours!
And the cheese fries is good too! Good texture and generous amount of cheese 😋

Super huge portion for the price, can have it for lunch + dinner. Tastes quite decent and would have it again or try other items on the menu.

Yummy juicy patty is the key to a good burger and this definitely qualifies. First time having it and would definitely go back again, but only when we feel like indulging as it's really quite expensive.

Difference between a normal Bacon Cheeseburger ($17) and a Little Bacon Cheeseburger ($15) is that the former has double patty and the latter is single patty. Extra $2 for another patty, I'd say go for it.

Toppings wise we went for All The Way which has a standard 8 toppings (mayo, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, mayo, mustard, grilled onions and grilled mushrooms). Great combination to make the burger really good. There's other toppings for selection/customisation too.

We also got a milkshake in peanut butter flavour ($10) and is delicious, but again, expensive. And a little to thick to really drink properly.

Cajun fries ($7) was served in a relatively good portion and not bad but a little too heavily seasoned.

Probably our fault that we didn't check the menu properly, but we weren't aware that the spicy chicken burger does not come in the ramly burger style with the egg wrap and sauces and all. So it's already quite disappointing to start with.

And then it's called a Spicy Chicken burger, but I wasn't able to taste the heat at all, which is even more disappointing.

This single patty is $4 ala carte and it can be made to double with additional $2, while a set meal with fries and drinks is $6.50.

Waited 30mins for this, really ain't quite worth it. I'd rather get McChicken burger at $2.50.

Sorry for the terrible photo, ordered this for takeaway as we didn't really want to wait in the queue.

Love the truffle fries! The seasoning is really great and they seemed to have made it slightly burnt for an extra "smoked" taste? I would say this is one of the best truffle fries I've ever had.

Price is a little steep though, but probably quite reasonable for this portion. Wish it came in a smaller portion for a lower price as it's quite a lot for 2pax to share. And for this portion, it would have been really nice if they had provided more sauce too.

Loved this dish! The sauce was extremely well done, not too much that make u sick of it and not too little such that it's too bland. The handmade tagliatelle has a very nice springy texture to eat (almost like meepok) which is really really good. There is also a good portion of bitesize prawns.

Just thought the price is a little steep though.

They allowed us to use beyond 1 for 1 for takeaway, but had to charge the extra 10% for service charge (at first they told us it was an extra $1 admin fee). Probably have to train the staff to get the facts right. And they took the price of the dish off, the additional $3 for the handmade tagliatelle is still fully paid for.

Will go back to try other dishes, only with the 1 for 1 deal.

The beef cheek was nicely cooked and it came with mashed potatos and sautéed mushrooms and bacons, which all came together rather nicely in terms of taste and texture.

Price is a little steep though for the amount of beef in the dish.

Posting the photo of the only item that is of any good at this place - Kalua Pulled Pork ($30). It is very flavourful and putting it in the pineapple added an extra flavour that complemented the entire dish very well.

What made this a disappointing experience include:
- Made a reservation and requested for indoor space, but the only seats left were under the beach umbrella and the service staff told us the seats may be wet as it was raining. Well, we don't have much choice, do we?
- Asked the service staff if the fish was raw or cooked, but she wasn't sure and was seen going around asking 2 or 3 people before she came back to us.
- We were told there's 1for1 promotion this month and it's applicable for Main and Bowl. But when we placed order for 1 main + 1 bowl and other sides, they told us it had to be from the same category. We were okay to pay the full price but the service staff kept asking if we want one more main or one more bowl. So we changed our orders to 4 mains instead.
- When the staff put the food down on our table, it didn't look anything like what we might have ordered, so we asked what was it. Surprisingly she didn't know what is it and had to go check with the kitchen.
- When we finally asked for the bill, they did not key in the 1for1 discounts and charged us full bill. When we asked about it, the staff started questioning one another - why was the order keyed in like this? Is the 1for1 applicable for mains?

The food might have been mediocre, but the service was really terrible. Some staff training might help salvage the situation. Or maybe it's just us, the other customers looked quite happy with their beers and bar bites.

Other food include:
- Fish and chips ($25)
- Huli Huli Chicken ($20, but it's just chicken in teriyaki sauce, though the grilled zucchini is excellent)
- Hapu U Pu ($25, a very very small portion of sea bass)
