𝐈𝐜𝐞 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝐬𝐜𝐨𝐨𝐩𝐬 ($3.70/$6.70)
Overall ⭐️ 3.5/5 ⭐️
The general favourites were 1) Baileys & Brownies (+$2 gourmet) for its punchy alcoholic kick and brownie bits and 2) Kochi Yuzu (+$1) for its refreshing citrus flavour (albeit slightly icy). Personally enjoyed the Ricotta with pistachio nuts (+$1 premium) that was light and creamy with bits of pistachio seeds but this might not suit those who prefer stronger cheese flavours.

We were less fans of the CNY special pineapple tart (+$1) with its artificially sweet pineapple taste. Chrysanthemum with cocoa nibs (+$1) had a distinctly strong floral taste but it leaned towards the artificial side, redolent of Yeo’s chrysanthemum tea 😅. The large amount of cocoa nibs embedded within also made it difficult to taste the floral notes and detracted from the smoothness of the gelato. Cereal milk had a more forgettable malty flavour.

𝐆𝐨𝐥𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐖𝐚𝐟𝐟𝐥𝐞 (3 ⭐️; $5.50)- Not sure if it’s because we went quite late in the evening but the waffle was disappointing. While crispy and airy, it had a strong buttery and rancid flavour that overpowered the ice cream.

I may not have a sweet tooth, but I can have the Pulut Hitam Tart ($3.20 each) any time any day! The buttery tart is filled with a layer of black glutinous rice, a layer of coconut panna cotta and topped with toasted coconut flakes. The contrast in textures, coconut aroma and level of sweetness are on point - love it!

The Brownie Speculoos Cookie Butter Tart ($3.20 each) is not bad too - the chocolaty, biscuity and buttery flavours complement one another and the sweetness is balanced by a hint of sea salt. Having said that, if I have to pick one item that stole the show, it will definitely have to be the Pulut Hitam Tart🤤

Charcoal Grilled Salmon ($18) 1-for-1 deal from Homeground Grill & Bar courtesy of Burpple Beyond! Also topped up $2 for black truffle salt to be paired with my steak. Lovely place for a dinner date with a wide selection of drinks and bar bites.

Ordered the Homeground Mixed Sharing Platter with beef on the side. (my friends couldn’t take beef) Food was delicious & the beef was super juicy. The prawns was fresh & yummy too. The sauces provided went really well with the food & the service was beyond excellent. They are vvv attentive & polite. Highly recommend! Awesome ambience too but just a little quiet.

Apart from the traditional and more familiar min jiang kuehs, AAA Pancake has these smaller curry puff-shaped ones. There’s a whole range of fillings to choose from - from the familiar peanut and coconut, to more unique ones like coffee and pandan. Went with the pandan and found the filling slightly too thick. The sweet paste tasted similar to pandan flavoured lotus paste. Filling aside, I did like the skin that was soft and not too thick or doughy, especially when it was served warm! Would try the others next time.

Been only going to this restaurant cause it’s near my place. But after consistent bad service I have restricted my trips to get tea only from there. Today, while getting tea which should be one of the easiest orders to fulfil the person firstly looked super displeased when I asked for it to be served in a cup instead of plastic container and also looked super upset that I wanted a second cup which I had already stated at the start of the order. The service is just getting worse. Hope they improve soon!

Creamy and savoury. Chicken was very tender and pasta was nice.

Surprisingly good.

Chee cheong fan(char siew) :definitely best dish i had today.

Also had the tom yam siew mai(unique) and loh mai gai, both so so only.

Har gow was bouncy and juicy. 👍

Used burpple beyond 1-for-1 so quite worth it. Topped up $2 for the truffle sea salt which went well with the steak. Steak itself was okay, it has no whisky taste at all. Ordered medium rare doneness but my steak was mostly medium. Overall 3.5/5 for steak.

Also ordered the Sweet Potato Fries with Rum Mayo ($10). The mayo really has slight rum taste, goes really well with the fries. Super good!!! 5/5 for the fries.

Ordered the salmon and crabmeat aglio olio. Salmon was nice but slightly overcooked. Sauce and sides for the salmon were good though! Aglio olio was okay but got boring after a few mouths. A bit too pricey as well :(

Just about 7 mins walk👣 from Boon Keng MRT Station, @homeground.grill is a grill bar that feeds your soul😌, offering charcoal-grilled meats🍖 and fresh seafood🦐 paired with alcohol-infused marinades and special house-made sauces. Thanks to @Burpple Beyond, we got 2 similar steaks🥩 for the price of 1☺️!

👉Charcoal Grilled Whisky Ribeye - SGD26
200g NZ🇳🇿 ribeye marinated in whisky🥃 and fresh herbs🌿, paired with salad🥗 and red wine🍷 reduction (with black TRUFFLE salt +SGD2)

Boasting a nice pink centre😍 (Swipe left👈), the steak was grilled to a perfect medium rare. Juicy and tender, it went really well with the black truffle salt👍! I swear🤞 you won’t regret paying that extra $2...

P.S. Hmm am I supposed to taste some whisky notes? Cause I didn’t managed to😂

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

One of the good BKT I tasted for quite some time.

Perfect on a rainy day.

Soup was delicious.

Also added on a small intestines, but it was not very fantastic.
