The Yuzu Butterfly Chicken ($18) was my favourite dish. The meat was cooked to perfection, juicy and tender. The crispy savoury skin was a nice contrast to the texture of the meat. The yuzu was well-infused into the meat and to my surprise, the flavour worked really well with the chicken!

I enjoyed the Bouillabaisse as well. I usually shy away from seafood but this soup blew me away! The seafood was very fresh, did not taste fishy at all. The prawn and mussel were soft and tender, not rubbery at all as it sometimes can be. The soup was thick and flavourful. Some might think its a tad bit salty but it worked well for me!

We also got the Pork Ribs ($20) which had a nice thick batter. Some parts of the meat were tender, falling right off the bone but some parts were a little tough. Maybe this could be something they can work on.

The Pork Katsu ($11) was quite good as well. Very crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I really liked the garlic chilli sauce that came with it.

I was on a Burrple Eat-up for their new menu, and being my first time here at this restaurant, I'm very surprised by the standards of this restaurant located in humble katong.

First thing first, their ambience is great to have a chill dinner here with your friends, as they have soft lightings, chill music, and of course, we-bare-bears to hug.

Food wise, their plating skills are superb. Each dish arrived are beautiful and insta-worthy. Some of the new dishes that we tried were the Pork Ribs ($20) and the Yuzu Butterfly Chicken ($18). The Yuzu Butterfly was perfect, as even the chicken breast was moist and flavourful. The Yuzu touch lifted the dish to a new level due to its citrusy profile.

The Pork Ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender, but the batter was a tad too thick. Not that it taste really floury, but it's just filling. With that aside I believe this dish can be their speciality, as the flambé makes it extra insta-worthy and its succulent ribs are great for as well.

In a nutshell, The Communal Place has great food, great ambience, and has sharing dishes for a family. Can't wait to bring my friends here for dinner and drinks!

The ambience was nice with good service. Was served a delicious welcome drink. The Miso Salmon that I ordered had a nice flavourful sauce. The portion was really reasonable too.
