it was creamy and filling! sauce is cheese and very flavourful, however not much truffle taste but it was full of umami flavour! would order it again. ($18.95++)

☆7.5/10☆

• Fettuccine Carbonara •
the pasta have a nice bite to it and the sauce is creamy and not cloying. nothing amazing but a good plate of carbonara. ($17.95++)

☆6.5/10☆

• Truffle Fries •
Strong truffle flavour! fries were crispy and not oily at all. serving size is alot too! (ate some before the picture 🤭) would order next time round. ($11.95++)

☆7.5/10☆

the service was great! very friendly and attentive staff. Would recommend making a reservation before dining there!

The pita bread was so soft and fluffy. I like that it was generously filled with falafels, tahini and salad to make it that much healthier. Each bite was a beautiful medley of flavour, guaranteed to leave you wanting more.
Overall I find the wrap tastes really deliciously authentic and a great value for money.

Head to Haji Lane for an authentic Turkish feast at this cozy restaurant! From Lamb Kofta ($24.90), Spinach Pide ($19.90) to classics such as Chicken Shawarma ($16) and Falafeel ($17.50) wraps, you'll be spoilt for choice. Take Burppler Shiba Yukari's lead and indulge in their Mix Grill Kebab ($44.90 for 2 Pax), which "tasted good, the lamb was well seasoned and not gamey."

This beautiful stack of malted pancakes, blueberry and maple compote, whipped vanilla and mascarpone cream is an utter joy to tuck into. Fluffy as hell, like the most tender-crumbed cake with a just little chew to it, the pancakes themselves won me right over. Then you’ve got that chunky blueberry compote of plump, juicy, whole blueberries, that actually tastes like the real damn berries and not some cheapass purée. And don’t even get me started on the mascarpone cream: exceedingly creamy, slightly tangy, rich yet paradoxically light 🥰🤤💕 I would’ve liked the malt to come across stronger — I honestly couldn’t taste it — but with all the amazing components here, this girl ain’t complaining.

The lamb and chicken dishes with chef recommendations were tasty, but portion size not super big. Enough for a lady but not quite for a man.

Really good rice bowls. The chicken was nicely seasoned and the white sauce had the right amount of tanginess! Love it will come back again!

Nostalgia is one powerful emotion to appeal to, but works only when used wisely.

Brotherbird were known to have closed for one entire year in light of the pandemic last year. Some people, including myself, were worried about the future of their store.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It seems like they’ve taken a step back to reflect on the operations before they put a cap on it in April 2020, evaluated what worked and what didn’t, and came back stronger.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before they closed, they did away with the Mochi Donuts with Softserve, a mainstay that was a crowd magnet, whether you were a regular or an acquaintance. They traded it with some honey toasts and gelati, which felt like a step forward too fast.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This time, they brought it back to what worked for them and even paired it with 2 other variations (ie waffles with softserve & fried croissants with softserve). Let’s get one thing straight though - there was nothing inherently wrong with what they did last year.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yet, many can admit that that, in contrast to this, pointed to a pace of the brand’s evolution that was easier for the crowd to follow and appreciate.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They still kept some of the new, which can be found among their savoury mains. They had found the perfect balance of bringing in the new and retaining the classic, which teems with nostalgia.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been back twice now, and it’s full house on both occasions. A lot of items are sold out with 2 hours to go to closing time. It’s as though they never left or closed shop.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They’re one of the few examples of F&B establishments that have tapped on the concept of nostalgia perfectly. All I can say at this point is: I’m happy they’re back.

Fried croissant coated in cinnamon sugar, sitting on a bed of raspberry coulis, served with Brotherbird’s signature cookie butter softserve, some diced strawberries and granola. Boy was this an utter joy to devour. Let’s start off with the fried croissant: what an absolute stroke of genius! Their take on churros I’d think sees their widely sought after croissants fried to a beautiful crisp, its inner layers becoming a hot, greasy mess that’s as sinful as it is delicious. Put that with their tasty af cookie butter softserve (best biscoff-flavoured frozen treat I’ve tasted btw), tangy coulis, and sweet vibrant strawberries, and you’ve got yourself a fabulously well-composed dessert. Granted, there’s still room for improvement here. I’d much have preferred the cinnamon sugar topping to be coarser, much like the good ol’ classic churros, and for the croissant to be a touch less greasy. But hey, it’s their third day of ops since they reopened their cafe after a year’s break; so I’m not complaining. It’s innovative without being over-the-top cray cray, exciting while still comforting.

For a very reasonable $9.90/$10.90 (chicken/beef), you get a generous bowl of their signature yellow basmati rice, fresh pita, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, housemade white and red sauces. Before we touch on flavour, let me just kindly point out that when I say this is a generous bowl: I actually mean MASSIVE. There’s a mound of rice in there, and most importantly enough meat to keep you going as well. “What about the taste,” you ask? OOF. The rice was perfectly cooked (read: grains still fully intact) and well-seasoned too; meats flavourful, juicy, and tender; and man were their sauces on point. The white sauce is tangy, garlicky, and cool, while the red sauce packs quite a massive punch; so together they balance each other out to create an absolutely delicious and satisfying meal.

Utilised my Burpple Beyond 1-for-1, ordered Black Tea with creme brûlée & Creme Cheese Foam Black Tea. The deal is excluding toppings. My choice of toppings: extra mini tapioka & extra mini taro balls. Total bills around $9 with GST.

The creme brûlée is a better choice compared with creme cheese foam black tea (too bitter to my liking).

To be honest it’s considered very expensive if you don’t have Burpple Beyond. Even with it, it’s definitely not cheap. Unfortunately they don’t have indoor sitting area, the shop is relatively small with only 4 chairs outdoor.
