We love clothes. And we love food and coffee. For us, a nice fitted shirt is just as important as a comforting, filling and reassuringly tasty Panini – accompanied by a good cuppa. So we decided to marry both, thus incorporating The Assembly Ground along side our retail arm. The Assembly Ground provides our customers and visitors a space to meet and exchange culture, ideas and experiences; offering a respite from shopping or just a casual place to hang out. Inspired by our roots in Melbourne and its cycling culture, a raw and warm atmosphere defines our casual café. With coffee blends from the best local coffee roasters, we serve up a mean cup of espresso and classic comfort fare from all day breakfast to weekend brunches.

Bburger had made its return ever since during the Circuit Breaker period as a delivery/takeaway option, but their menu now has a place in the menu of The Assembly Ground at The Cathay and Cathay Cineleisure — the familiar favourites such as the B Burger, Karate Burger, and Bom Chicka Wow Wow still being listed in the menu after all this while.

Went for the B Supreme — featuring Freshly-rolled Beef Patty, Portobello Mushrooms, Vintage Cheddar, Caramelised Onions, and Truffle Sauce, the B Supreme makes for a very good cheeseburger-esque offering on the menu here. They seem to get it right from the buns to the condiments — the buns all buttered and grilled for a crisp underside, but still remains light and fluffy, while the beef patty is absolutely flavourful without being particularly gamey; liked how the patty gives a good meaty bite without being too crumbly, nor was it tough or chewy. The mix of sautéed portobello mushrooms and caramalised onions were delicious — worked in hand with the other condiments with the mushroom giving a bouncy chew and all earthy, while the soft caramalised onions provided a good sweetness that compliments that stellar beef patty; all that while the truffle sauce adds a creamy touch and just a very slight whiff of truffle aroma that does not overwhelm the entire burger. Curly fries are an option here at no extra costs — absolutely loved how the curly fries here comes all crisp on the exterior and almost free from greasiness; a joy to pop in the mouth in between morsels of the burger.

Must say that I was not quite impressed with B Burger when they first started out as a physical outlet at Cathay Cineleisure a couple of years; possibly ordered the wrong items but quite sold by their comeback as part of the menu at The Assembly Ground. Surely they have lost quite some of the greasy, yet hip American casual fast diner vibes here but this works well as a delicious artisanal cafe rendition anyway with its presentation and environment now — something which I am likely to return to for more when the cravings hit!

Not the best carbonara esp for the price. It was a little dry but the mushrooms were juicy and good 👍

Oh apparently they have 1-1 pastas (not sure when tho, check their ig out to find out I Guess). Wouldn’t mind coming back to try the other pastas if it was 1-1 😁

For $10 (after burpple beyond), this pasta dish is extremely value for money. Comes with generous portion of fish and linguine was also quite well flavoured. Had a double shot latte and it was good too. 👍

Side note: Roasted Young Chicken was a big disappointment. Would not recommend.

bought the Hae Bee Hiam Seafood Aglio Olio ($23)
Umami Prawn Linguini ($23) with the 1-for-1 pasta offer currently ongoing at The Cathay!
Hae Bee Hiam Seafood Aglio Olio was an interesting fusion and creative dish. The spicy flavour was mild and not the punch-in-your-face kind that some spice lovers look for! Perhaps it was just our dish that had this issue but the clams were shrivelled up and not the plump, juicy ones we anticipated. Additionally, the pasta was dry and thus is given a 6.5/10 rating.
The Umami Prawn Linguini was flavourful and had a nice salty taste which we enjoyed! Both the sauce and the linguini complemented each other well, definitely a good dish to try out :") Did not feel jelak at all, a solid 8/10!
Both pastas came in generous portions and left us feeling satisfied! Overall a good purchase with the 1-for-1 but not worth the original price.

Truffle Spaghetti was disappointing because there was a lack of truffle taste, really limited that it taste like an ordinary cream sauce, probably 1 or 2 drops of truffle oil. It is expensive at $24++. Disappointing, won't eat again.

Rate: 2.5/10

The flavour of both pastas were slightly lacklustre as the spiciness and umami-ness of both dishes were not significant. The amount of crabmeat was rather little, and they came in such small pieces that we could not really taste the flavour of the crab too. The prawns, however, were sweet and succulent which we love!🤤 To be honest, we have tasted better for both dishes. Having said that, we hope that the cafe can improve their recipes after reading reviews like this and we look forward to trying their other dishes too!😊
