From the Burpple community

Returning to this place for the 1000th times, that is how good their food are.

Recently, they have announced their closing down, and I decided to bring my family to once again try their wide array of dishes (we nearly ordered their whole menu 😂)

So what stood out particularly are as follows:

1) Appetizers

i) Baked eggplants—Nothing particularly stood out but it was a homely sort of comfort food

ii) Baccala cake with sea urchin (Must-try)— Just loved how the cakes go so well when dipped in the thick, flavorful sea urchin paste

2) Mains

i) Duck Confit—A little too dry for my taste...but still worth a shot

ii) Sea urchin carbonara—-There’s something so alluring about their sea urchin sauce

iii) Kale Ravioli— Ravioli not too chewy, has the right consistency. Bursting with umami.

iv) Wagyu beef cheeks (Must-try)— Wagyu just melts in your mouth. Paired with mash potato, the flavor is elevated. But on its on, Wagyu is good enough!

3) Desserts

i) Molten Lava cake paired with vanilla Gelato — The lusciousness of the molten chocolate cake paired with a refreshing gelato elevated this dessert so much! Chocolate cake’s outer layer has just the right tinge of crispness too!

ii) Mango cheesecake— Love how the different layers of the cheesecake come together, very harmonious flavor profile

iii) Tiramisu—something a cut above the rest of the tiramisu, accentuates a very homely feel

[MEDIA] Aromatic truffle paste and melted smoked cheese come together with sautéed shimeji mushrooms to yield earthy flavours with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, with a luxurious shaving of fresh truffles adding a finishing touch. [$15]

[MEDIA] SONS deserves credit for its tasteful presentation of its dishes, like this Duck Leg Confit with Cannellini & Cherry Tomatoes [$26]. While the golden crispy skin is delightful to crunch into, it is however let down by the dry meat within. A touch (or a few) more of moistness in the meat would have done the trick.

Located amongst the heritage-chic shophouses along Nankin Row (at @chinasquarecentral) is @sons.singapore, a buzzy rustic trattoria-style bar and restaurant that serves classic Italian fare with a touch of modernity. They also have a curated list of Italian wines🥂, craft beers🍻 & cocktails🍹 to enhance your dining experience.

It was my first time having this Sicilian twisted tube-shaped pasta which actually holds the truffle pesto sauce pretty well. However, I didn’t exactly like the texture of this pasta as it was kinda doughy for me. Overall, it was still a pretty decent meal.

Wanted to try their Spaghetti with Sea Urchin Carbonara but most reviews stated that the flavour was quite one-dimensional, with not much hint of sea urchin.

Ordered the Casarecce with Truffle Pesto and Porcini Mushroom and Wagyu Beef Cheek with Roast Peppers. I've always like chewier pasta but the one served today was abit too hard even for me. I says today cause the previous time I came the pasta was always perrrrfectttt. The sauce was abit thick but good. The beef was practically melting in my mouth with the sauce tasting like the chinese dan gui herbs. But that's it. Had couple of Paulaner Lager as well. Full and Satisfying. Paid $68.30 in all with a burpple one for one for the mains.

Popped by on a Friday evening, and was really happy to see a live band playing some tunes. As per the reviews on Burpple, I ordered the hot favourite - the Wagyu Beef Cheeks for my main.

The portion is humongous, this particular cow must have some huge cheeks (I wonder which ones in particular) for they were certainly sizable and very very filling. And as advertised, the meat was indeed very tender and parts easily under the knife. However, there was a strong gaminess that accompanied the meat, and that may deter those who isn’t a fan of such a flavour. I, for one, was overpowered by the umami flavour and the sauce was pretty salty as well. To quell that, id suggest pairing it with the mash and roasted peppers at the side.
