In theory, @ashessgburnnit Pulled Brisket Burger is pure perfection. At $6.90 (nice) for the regular, and $9.40 nett for double the beefy brisket bliss, this is a brilliant bargain. The Australian beef brisket is braised in what is probably a marvellous mirepoix for twenty four hours, which is why all that’s needed for it to fall apart are these hands. That’s right, no knife or fork needed to pull the brisket apart, only hands.⠀

The salty, rich & unforgettably umami brisket is heaped into a ponderous pile on a leaf of lettuce, which itself is perched upon the bottom half of a charcoal burger bun. A quick drizzling of Ashes’ ‘signature sauce’, which seems to be a cheese sauce, is the last element that goes on the burger before the top half of the bun caps it all off. Supported by a side of French fries that can be upgraded to either cheese or truffle fries, and it’s ready for showtime.⠀

However, in practice, it definitely did not go according to plan. The scintillatingly savoury & tender beef brisket was so maddeningly moist & saucy that the bottom bun was disintegrating on its own. The protective barrier that was supposed to be the lettuce was definitively breached by the deluge of glorious gravy from the brisket, and the bun was absolutely no match. Another persistent problem was the lack of a backstop. Every time I took a gargantuan gnaw of the tasty burger, a cascade of brisket would blow out her back.⠀

Forget the knife, this is definitely a fork & spoon affair. Unless Ashes manage to find a way to fortify the burger buns from the onslaught of the saucy beef, this burger is probably better when deconstructed into its delicious components. Perhaps stuffing it all into a bun that isn’t sliced all the way through is a start, so that there’s a burger pocket to trap all the brisket that’s attempting a prison break from my jaw.

Still undeniably unctuous though, and it’s a hell of a tasty burger in my books.

Memories of hong Kong flashback after each bite of this.

Really reminds me of Yee Shun Milk pudding near the place I stayed at Yau Ma Tei

Worth that 90min queue. Orhnee not too sweet and the gingko nuts gave a good chew bite as well. So good!!!

Love this!!! Definitely will be back!! Also super worth w burpple 1 for 1!

Lamb was flavorful and juicy. A unique aspect is that the dishes are flavored with lots of traditional herbs, except spicy ones, which we were super happy about as we are not spicy lovers. Hope to dine in in the restaurant which has been decorated so authentically and fancifully😋

One of the best croissants in SG - with unique flavours like red velvet, black forest and almond. The gouda and ham is savory and delicious too. Cinnamon bun is great too!

Had been taking away bottled coffee to enjoy over the weekends during this Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) period — perhaps more of an attempt to bring the cafe experience back home considering how we aren’t able to dine-in as yet and there isn’t any cafes offering things like that near me; decided to go to the ones nearer to the workplace since a visit to office has to be made.

Had brought back Curious Palette’s (which mum loves, and is one of my go-to in the immediate area) and The Assembly Ground’s renditions, but the ones from Gather are slightly different because they aren’t cold brews but bottled mochas instead. Came across these on social media but I was especially impressed by the Wicked — the bottled mocha here comes brewed using the same beans roasted by Genovese Coffee as the ones used in their usual specialty coffee, but the Wicked stands out because of how it is sufficiently creamy and chocolatey — that magic ratio of milk, coffee and chocolate that works (since most places don’t do a nice mocha; too chocolate-y, if not too milky). Spiked with mint, the Wicked tasted like as though Christmas really came early with its refreshing and cooling finish that comes after the caffeine and chocolate-y notes — very festive, and a mood booster to all the things that have been happening around.

In retrospect, the Generra would be more for the acquired taste buds. It used the same base as that of the Wicked, but the Generra is an orange-infused version that comes with a slight hint of citrusy and gingery that make work well with some. It is a different kind of “refreshing” when compared against the Wicked — something that is slightly more zingy and zippy which takes away the richness of the chocolate pretty aptly.

While Gather’s bottled coffee selection isn’t quite the usual cold brew that other specialty coffee joints offer, I like how they have seemed to be a little more adventurous on their take on bottled coffee — experimenting on bottled coffee with interesting infusions that may have been tested and proven by others before, but still presents itself as a refreshing change from the usual — probably planning for a revisit when dine-in resume!

🍗 Spicy buffalo lollipops ($12++): made for easy eating and the BBQ sauce taste was strong, abit too much drenched in sauce though!

Pizza night with pizzas from @happyendingpizza !

🍕 Mushroom madness ($27++): comes with some truffle taste with gooey cheese and 3 diff types of mushrooms. Wished the truffle taste was stronger!
🍕Hawaii Five-O ($27++): special in the sense that it has one whole caramelised cinnamon pineapple ring in the middle. And comes with pancetta instead of the usual ham.

What is special too about this pizza parlour is that they provide pizza dips! The one we got was the sweet chilli pineapple for the Hawaiian pizza pairing. But I thought it didn't go quite well. I would have preferred other sauces! Was also given another sauce dip but it tastes more like haebeehiam chilli sauce to me, also weird for a pizza dip 🤔

Decent rendition/clone of the NYC halal guys (but of course halal guys is still the best). Pulled beef is nice and tender. Falafel was abit of a surprise as it didn't taste the same as the usual ones. Rice is moist and tasty. Local Sambal is very spicy!

I saw this on Tess Bar & Kitchen’s delivery menu and I knew I had to have it.

The whole lobster tail tagliatelle wasn’t just a treat for the eyes but for the palate as well.

It was wonderfully balanced: the saltiness of the trout roe, the sweetness of the vodka rose sauce as well as the tartness of cherry tomatoes, just made this an incredibly appetising dish.

Extra points as they packed the roe and additional sauce separately to keep the texture on point!
