Food was great and affordable (under $10 for the normal pho dishes) even without Burpple. I tried the eggplant chips with honey mayo twice and both groups really enjoyed it. This is also one of the rare places offering banh mi with pâté, which I really miss from Ho Chi Minh.

Do note that service is pretty slow, with the service staff disappearing at times into the kitchen.

The carrot cake has really nice charred bits, and you can taste the incredible wok hei which so many carrot cake stalls lack these days. The black version has lovely crispy caramelised bits. I really enjoyed the black version, generous with eggs, and goes well with a heap of spring onions. It was so good but I forgot to take a photo, and had to borrow photo of the Aunty sitting in front of me.

Every tonkatsu set meal here comes with a fried half-boiled egg, rice, miso soup and Japanese pickles. The restaurant also positioned itself in serving a healthier version of tonkatsu, thanks to the state-of-the-art fryers with Water Molecule Control technology. Apparently, 50% less oil is absorbed into the meat during the frying process as compared to tradition deep-frying methods. I would say taste the texture are not comprised in the new method of cooking.

A taste of premium goodness. So much ootoro in a single don, I teleported to Japan.

Definitely more value for money with 1 for 1! The cheese and the scrambled egg is soo good.
Will go for it again ✨

Good amount of chicken and egg.
Requested for less sauce.
Rice too hard
Damage: $10

1 Mentaiyaki tamago kaisendon and 1 Kei Signature kaisendon.
Reasonably good tasting kaisendons and each set comes with 1 hot green tea, miso soup, simple lettuce salad, 2 chicken drumlets and... free flow of hard boiled eggs!
Good value using Burpple app.
Service was good and ingredients used was fresh enough!

All set meal comes with rice, miso soup, half boiled fried egg and access to their salad and sauce bar. Simply mind blown at how well the katsu was done. The batter of the hard boiled egg was so crispy on the outside and the yolk flow was still there upon breaking. And that ain’t even the main items in the meal.

1 for 1 Burpple Beyond offer. My friend ordered the Mentaiyaki Tamago Kaisendon while I had the Kei Signature Kaisendon.
The Burpple Premium set comes with 1 miso soup, 2 drumlets, 1 serving of salad and 1 main of choice, 1 hot/cold drink with free flow of hard boiled eggs, very much to my delight!!
The kaisendons were yummy! Decent amount of rice with good array of fresh sashimi!

Shared the Burpple premium set with a friend ($30.90, no extra charges), which came with two dons, salads, soup, drinks, and four pieces of chicken drumsticks (not pictured). The soup had radish and salmon pieces, besides the usual seaweed! Was quite surprised by the generous spread, plus the free flow eggs. I found my mentaiko salmon unevenly cooked - one half was moist and tender, another half was slightly chewy and on the dry side (I just had to start on the nicer side first T_T). Otherwise filling and delicious!

Service was fast and good, especially cos we dropped an gooey egg haha. Downside is that it’s a small eatery, so you’re seated elbow-to-elbow with other diners.

My all time favourite spot for collagen soup for premium hotpot! Queue is not insanely long like HDL at peak hours and ingredients are all fresh and reasonably priced. The star of the show will always be their collagen soup, which I can drink like 5 bowls on its own lol. Its so rich and hearty, making you feel like all of your organs are nourished. Other than the wide range of dipping condiments and sauces available, the side dishes were of good quality and variety of fresh fruits were provided too. Last but not least, the complimentary dessert ,the yuzu ice blended drink, always steal our heart. Being so light and tangy it makes you feel refreshed after a heavy meal.
