The Classic Beef Burger - $5
Comes with lettuce, cheese, pickles and homemade sauce. Toasted Bun was sightly burned. Hand Cut Fries is $1.50 can be bought but I wouldn't recommend as it was overcooked and dry. A hour wait during the weekend lunch was not worth it. Try their Crispy Pork Belly Burger for better enjoyment

Patties look so yesterday as compared to what is given in the Crispy Pork Belly Burger (S$5.50), because you will get a few thick pieces of "sio bak". As I really enjoyed the crispiness of the pork belly (especially that skin!), I can't help but wonder if the pork might be a tad too tough for the teeth. Thankfully it's not too dry.

Perhaps being the most hip food stall in the Food Centre, waiting time can be a bit ridiculous for this burger. Worth it or not, I reckon it's worth that queuing once in a while, but the add-on of Fries (+ S$1.50) can be passed unless you must have chips to go with the burger.

Lies a very quaint cafe, in The Hillford. A hidden gem with a nice ambience. Was there for brunch with my little girl on a Friday morning, it was pretty quiet (perhaps the location played a part). Waffles ($15) were a tad too crispy to my liking but the Honey Lavender ice cream that came with it was certainly something to remember. Their cutlery are from Loveramics and just super pretty. The lavender latte was nice too ($5). They also serve cold pressed juices ($7). Place accepts only NETs and Cash. No service charge or GST.

Always on a look out for authentic jajangmyeons ever since the month long stay in Korea and so, it was a no brainer to get this! At the time of our visit, Bab Muk Ja has only opened for a week and this bowl was coincidentally, also the first Jajangmyeon out of their kitchen. The sauce was fried with cubes of potatoes and pork, drenched all over the familiar bed of yellow noodles. Noodles were chewy but a hair overcooked and we would have loved for the dark brown sauce to be stronger in its sweetness (maybe due to the lack of onions here). Decent, more of a very homely version.

Would have liked to see this come as a full bowl of soup, but with what we got, this was still satisfying. Making use of their homemade kimchi, the stew here was smooth and less acidic than those we've tried before. Spice was manageable. I always appreciate well cooked rice, so thumbs up to the one served here.

For a healthy and satisfying lunch, head to this stall at Bukit Timah Market and Food Centre for a bowl of hearty vegetarian Thunder Tea Rice (from $4). We hear the friendly owner's a karaoke fan who's not at all shy about breaking out into a tune! While dried shrimp and ikan bilis are obviously absent, the dish more than makes up for the flavour thanks to the medley of toppings β€” chopped greens, peanuts, preserved radish (chye poh) and peanuts. The accompanying basil and mint soup is also spot-on in terms of flavour, and we appreciate the tiny details, such as the optional green chilli sauce made with apple cider for those who like their food with a bit more kick. Pro tip: Take Burpple Tastemaker Fabian Poon's advice to go easy on the rice, as the addition of red beans in the mix will fill you up.

Upon seeing such a massive crowd each time, I decided to buy some. Muffins aren't usually my thing so I was initially hesitant, but the troves of people carrying bags filled with muffins convinced me otherwise.

From first bite I was hooked. Moist, fluffy, and with a surprise filling inside. It's a good afternoon tea-sized portion. Only $1.65 ($9.90 if you buy 6, otherwise $1.80 each) each for a delicious snack after lunch. It's cheap AND good. What's not to like? I've been buying 6 pieces every time I see their stall at Heart Centre (just outside the food court). πŸ˜„

Check out the cross section for banana flavour - a chocolate muffin base with banana filling inside! It's very hard to stop at one... πŸ™Š #Burpple

Bukit Timah, during weekend is always over-crowded, this hakwer offering numerous food choices including the vegetarian Thunder Tea Rice, and the owner will sing the song out loud.

Missed out on this last time, because I was overseas during the launch.
So I'm only trying this for the 1st tine, which I guess makes me a late adopter.
Verdict - ok ok. Not sure what the fuss is about.

Mangoes were a mix of sweet and tangy, but we would have appreciated a softer texture and stronger coconut fragrance for the glutinous rice.

The parents liked this dish, hor fun fried in black soy sauce with veg, eggs and chicken. Hor fun was springy and fragrant, but it was just a little too oily for our liking.
