From the Burpple community

Nestled away in a cozy neighbourhood at Kembengan, the food here at @southunionpark did not disappoint! We used our #BurppleBeyond here and enjoyed a 1-for-1 deal for our mains!

Pictured are the π’πžπšπ«πžπ 𝐏𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐧 𝐌𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐒𝐀𝐨 𝐏𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐚 ($23) and the 𝐏𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐏𝐨𝐫𝐀 𝐂𝐑𝐨𝐩 ($24).

Topped with generous chunks of juicy prawns, the pasta was cooked al-dente and coated generously in a smoky mentaiko sauce. Unlike other mentaiko dishes which can get heavy too quickly, the flavours were well balanced and I finished every last bite of my pasta. I loved this dish and would definitely re-order it again.

The pork chop was served with slices of apples and coated in a pommery mustard sauce. This was a very interesting and unique flavour combination, with whiffs of cinnamon yet paired delightfully with the pork chop. Overall, we enjoyed this dish very much as well.

These came as a little surprise treat for me, considering I have actually came across their social media pages and to know that they are offering these tarts during Phase 2 (Heightened Alert). Quite about time also, considering it has been way too long since I have last dropped by South Union Park for their pastas and mains which I loved so much ever since my first visit β€” still remembered how I walked in being so impressed with their Butternut Agnolotti (no longer on their menu); and have kinda stuck with them ever since.

Launched during the Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), the β€œA Tale Of 5 Tarts” consists of tarts in five different flavours (not available separately, and must be ordered in a set of five), namely:

- SUP Signature Lemon;
- Dark Chocolate Caramel;
- Sticky Pecan;
- Strawberry with Lemon Bavarian Cream; and
- Hazelnut Cream Cheese with Biscuit Crumble

Of the lot, the Hazelnut Cream Cheese with Biscuit Crumble and the Strawberry with Lemon Bavarian Cream will be the show-stoppers, while the Sticky Pecan, SUP Signature Lemon and Dark Chocolate Caramel are the β€œclassics” with a simple composition as compared to the other two. The tart base beneath comes pretty sturdy and holds up the elements above well, though does vary in terms of its softness (likely due to the various components that might have caused the tart base to have soaked up some of the moisture during delivery) β€” the tarts come off cleanly even when had with a fork, without the pastry disintegrating and crumbling into a mess.

The SUP Signature Lemon is a well-made lemon tart especially when it comes down to the lemon curd β€” it’s smooth, creamy and not in any way gel-like; suitably zingy and carries a tartness that makes it good as a palate cleanser with its tanginess that isn’t overly harsh to the taste buds.

The Dark Chocolate Caramel will work well with chocolate lovers; rich, bittersweet chocolate that also carries an earthy undertone β€” all paired with a sticky layer of toffee-like caramel for a contrasting sweetness across the two elements. It also comes with a light sprinkling of sea salt that attempts to neutralise the sweetness; pretty indulgent indeed.

Having had a pecan tart just a few weeks prior, the Sticky Pecan tart from South Union Park may seem to be a little stiff considering how it is laced with all that sticky sweetness β€” a little difficult to slice down, but it proved to be a favourite with how the pecan gives a soft crunch; a good balance of roasty, nutty sweetness that works great for something different from the usual curd-filled tarts.

For those who love their sour-ish desserts, the Strawberry with Lime Bavarian Cream is the one to go for β€” while the SUP Signature Lemon is the more classic item, the Strawberry with Lime Bavarian Cream is one that would capture the attention for those who prefer dainty desserts. The strawberries come sliced thinly; fresh with its light, natural sweetness β€” all that paired against a light pastry cream that hints of a zippy note being infused with lime (perhaps key lime?); one that is again light and refreshing, without being the same old combination of elements that one would usually find in the category of sour-ish dessert.

The Hazelnut Cream Cheese with Biscuit Crumble is probably the one that I found most intriguing, considering that most hazelnut desserts often see a pairing with chocolate; cream cheese does seem more like an adventurous move in comparison. That being said, we were especially impressed with how the combination was so well done here; the velvety smooth filling does come with that nutty and slight chocolate-y notes that is inherent with the nut, but I absolutely dig how the cream cheese gives the hazelnut more depth β€” gave the filling a slightly deep and tangy finish that was pretty alluring.

It has been a long while since my last visit to South Union Park/Eleven Strands (my last visit to Eleven Strands was around end 2019), but I am glad that they are still able to impress with their tart box β€” a curation of sweet treats that are done with the usual finesse that South Union Park usually prides themselves over their creations that we enjoy during dine-in. Have seen them come so far from the days that they have started; the pandemic certainly hasn’t been kind to many F&B establishments β€” while the β€œA Tale of 5 Tarts” box is available as an item to order on their website exclusively, their menu of hot food, desserts and beverages is available to order via Grabfood, with options to do self pick-up and delivery being available.

Eggs and mushrooms were average, sausages were good but it’s hard to go wrong with sausages. Croissant was really awesome, saved the breakfast in fact. Tried the latte, bone marrow and duck confit pasta too. Duck confit pasta taste was worth trying, the pasta was Q and the broth was flavoursome. The rest was really average, wouldn’t recommend without burpple. All these came up to $50 with burpple beyond. Ala carte croissant is $3.50 each, $5 for two.

The dessert that I've been looking forward to; frangipane is very moist; nutty & slightly sweet; poached pear is juicy, soft with slight crunch; sweet & sour with mild red wine taste; vanilla ice cream is mildly sweet with strong vanilla taste; drizzled with red wine sauce & sprinkled with crispy crumbles; good sweet-ending food..

Green tea taste > milk; not sweet not bitter; a good cup of strong brew green tea latte..
