I am not a fish person at all, but everyone on Burpple were raving about the Barramundi so I had to try it and boy IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. It was moist and tasty, served with a bed of creamy mashed potatoes, exceeded all expectations!

I think I found myself a new love.

Didn’t know burger bun could be this pillowy soft. Yes I’ve had pillowy burger bun before but this felt like a whole new level of softness, I really looked forward to every bite of the bun.

This is Single Truffled Mushroom Burger, look at the thick slab of patty. I had Single SRF Wagyu Burger as well, don’t be fooled by the thin-looking patty, the meatiness taste was definitely present.

Is it too greedy to say I like them both equally much?

Single Truffled Mushroom Burger $12
Single SRF Wagyu Burger $13

I just had to post this to ditto Burppler Kaki @cweizhi 👽😛

Half the time at this quaint cafe with honest in-house bakes, I wondered what took me so long to visit when school was nearby in the past.

Have been to Tom’s Palette for quite a while ever since their days at Shaw Tower, but plated desserts are something that I have not seen them do until now — got intrigued by some posts over social media about the release of their festive special which runs from 20 November 2020 to 9 December.

Being an item which is part of the limited run of the Thai-inspired menu, The Longtail features elements such as Mango Soft-Serve, Thai Sweet Chili Caramel, Black Rice, Choux Pastry and Coconut Tuille. It’s probably one of the first few times that Tom’s Palette is exploring soft serves here, considering how they have been known for their ice-cream which are served in scoops — the Mango soft-serve was enjoyable however; carried the sweetness of said fruit without being a particularly milky or creamy flavour unlike how soft serves are known to be. The soft-serve also held itself well to the heat, considering how it actually took some time to melt as well. Sitting atop a choux pastry, the pastry is the vehicle here that gels the soft-serve and the black glutinous rice together; a spongey, light and airy pastry that was sufficiently moist, while the black glutinous rice carries an earthy note that is almost identical to that of Pulut Hitam without being particularly sweet. The Coconut Tuille over the top provides a good crunch and a hint of aromatic, coconut fragrance that is rather refreshing against the other elements. Most peculiar would be the Thai Sweet Chili Caramel; almost like a toned down version of the Thai Sweet Chili dip that we often get to go around the fried dishes at Thai restaurants, it may sound like a strange idea, but the sweetness works well against every single element — even to the extent of binding everything together, whilst carrying just a very light hint of spiciness at the end to tingle the taste buds that most folks should be tolerable to for a slight quirkiness to the dessert. As weird as it may sound, but it was actually rather appealing and surprisingly complimenting.

I always liked how Tom’s Palette carries their experimentation of flavours far beyond one can imagine — that’s exactly how ice-cream flavours like the White Chocolate Nori (my favourite btw) came about; an adventurous mix of flavours that is hard to imagine, but comes off together so perfectly despite how bold it may sound on the menu. This had also become something that shaped the character of Tom’s Palette over the years — somewhere that takes pride in the art of ice-cream making above and beyond with its new and inventive flavours. Looking forward to their next series that is to be launched in December; always enjoy a good plated dessert after all!

Dark chocolate and truffle. There’s a good portion of truffle cream in the middle which is really intense if eaten alone. But together with the dark chocolate mousse, they go really well together.

Comprising of black sesame, yuzu and matcha. Super cute since it looks like a potted plant. However, the yuzu was really overpowering that it masks the black sesame. And I couldn’t really taste the matcha, which comes in as a crunchy element in their dessert.

Freshly baked on order, these were super fragrant! Was a tiny bit cakey in the middle but still an enjoyable treat that were not sweet.

Buttermilk waffle drizzled w honey-Tabasco sauce, served with warm maple butter. The highlight is the fried chicken actually! Well seasoned and stays crispy after turning cold. It goes very well with or even without the waffles. A must order on top of their pancakes which are huge in serving

[Bugis] 4/5 ⭐️

Not the best but definitely one of the better burgers in Singapore.
If you’re here to get burgers, go for it. 👍🏻
If you’re here for the atmosphere, then nope. 👎
Perhaps if the vibes of the place could be checked, the overall experience would’ve been better.

A very well balanced burger that wasn’t overly Jelat. The buns were quite different from most burger places we’ve been to.
Twas more pillowy, chewy and definitely more buttery! LOVE IT!😋
