From the Burpple community

The name is rather misleading as this dish is actually a single, large, supremely fluffy hotcake served in a pan. ($20) There's a mixed berry compote underneath that layer of cornflake crumb, drizzled with passionfruit curd and more fresh berries on top, for a delicious sweet fruity explosion as you put that first bite in your mouth. It comes with a nice big chunk of butter and a thyme-infused maple syrup by the side.

I loved the fluffy, kinda earthy, grainy buckwheat texture however it was too dry for my taste. But nothing that can't be rescued with maple syrup. And that soft, airy crumb along with the beautiful floral-themed presentation is just too delicious for me to be mad at the dryness.


Populus’ food has remained consistent throughout. If noodles aren’t your choice of food for the day, their seafood grain bowl is a great choice too

Price is steeper than other joints serving a similar thing and it does not taste very truffle-y. However there are more veggies that they put in so it feels like a more balanced meal. I shall stick to the usual fares next time (the croissant definitely does not disappoint!).

Labelled as a Populus Special Edition. It was smooth & milky, but a little too sweet for our liking.

A sweet, satisfying frozen treat of Black Forest sundae waffle ($18++) that’s perfect for ending a hearty meal at Populous. Seems like it’s a limited edition item so not sure how long it’ll last.

Emulating its cake equivalent, the sundae is made up twist of velvety dark chocolate and Tahitian vanilla ice cream, dark cherry and kirsch compote, blackcurrant coulis, mocha sauce, rich dark chocolate cake and popping candy. 🍰

This tasted as though I’m eating a real black forest cake with the cherry and kirsch compote and the blackcurrant coulis. I love the fullness of this dessert, the sweet and sour flavours and how’s it laden with chocolate. 🍫

The best way to enjoy this sundae entirely is none other than some freshly baked, crispy waffles (additional $5++). 🧇

It’s a rather rich and filling and I recommend that to share this with someone unless you’re eating this on an empty stomach. You’ve been warned.

Great food and great place to chill over a weekend brunch session
