From the Burpple community

Dined here on a rainy Thursday night and the place was quiet and cosy. The Menu link on the Burrple redemption page is broken so I just thought to mention that there are 3 main dish options for the set menu — Sous Vide Chicken Breast, Porky Bowl and Seafood Aglio Olio, with 2 beverage options, being Ginger Lemonade and Iced Lemon Tea.

Boy: Chicken Breast (UP: $18.90). Found the chicken tender and the mash potato a pleasant homemade touch. Said the mash was very creamy, with peanuts that give it some added nuances. Overall 8/10.

Girl: Porky Bowl (UP: 17.90). It was a nice don-like rice bowl, laden with a thick egg omelette and bacon. Sweet sauce infused with the rice gives it a Japanese flavor. Whilst serving is large, I would say it's mostly an Eggy bowl. Bacon serving was rather small and it was mostly egg + rice. Would rate 7/10.

Verdict: nice ambience and decent food, but both Boy and Girl agree that the overall 7.5/10 rating is valid because of the Burrple deal. Would otherwise be lower if we were paying full price. Still worth a try if you are around the vicinity! Also note; cost for set was $28.25 after taxes.

Ordered the seafood aglio olio under the Burpple deals (2 for $24++) with ice lemon tea.
Adequate portion served came w 2 large mussels and prawns. overall the pasta is not dry for an aglio olio.

Food was not very tasty and service can be better. Ambience was good and the theming is unique

Healthy and vegan option with arugula, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, beetroot and balsamic dressing. It's a great starter but could be used as a small main.

Finally got to try this uniquely located cafe. Located amidst the industrial buildings. Walkable distance from the bus stop. This homemade buttermilk waffles is really a good choice for a butter sweet dessert. Each heart waffle is thin and crispy on the outside yet moist in the inside.
Had a choice between chocolate/vanilla icecream to go along. The ice cream really complements the waffles crispiness. 🧇

Dropped by Wheeler’s Yard since we were exploring the hawker choices within the area; not much of a place that I would make a special visit down by my own considering how Whampoa/Balestier is not quite a neighbourhood that I do visit; but definitely helped that the vibes here do suit the festive season very well.

There wasn’t much dessert options available at Wheeler’s Yard save for the waffle and the cakes apart from this item. Serving their own rendition of an Orh Nee in a deconstructed form, the Crazy About Orh Nee features elements such as Yam Ice-Cream, Yam Cubes, Pumpkin Purée, Gingko Nuts, Coconut Cream and Homemade Butter Crumbs, the dish is a rather conservative attempt as a plated dessert considering the composition of the elements involved, though rather expected coming out of a cafe. Being a seemingly predictable dish, the Yam Ice-Cream carried a slight earthy note without being too sweet — well-balanced with the light coconut cream that results in a flavour that replicates that of Yam Paste and giving it a slight richness as well. The cubes of yam provides a bite, while the pumpkin purée came fibrous — personally would prefer the yam to be a little softer while the pumpkin purée to be more of a mash, though it could be an attempt to add a more textures to the dessert. The gingko nuts gave a slight bitterness for a flavoural contrast — also an element usually found in the traditional Yam Paste, while the homemade butter crumbs gave a slight cookie-esque crunch for a slightly western touch considering how its supposed to be a modern variant of the classic Teochew dessert.

Personally not too much of a fan of Wheeler’s Yard considering that there are many other places that does their food from scratch that appeals to me more, which explains why I hadn’t been pretty much here all this while, but I can tell the reason why some have them as their cafe of choice — the food is generally faultless with a few standouts that are actually pretty good (don’t kill me, but the Truffle Fries are rather decent for folks who are easily satiated with their truffle oil). The strongest draw factor however has to be their decor — that rustic, industrial look within an old warehouse just looks so apt; cosy and pleasant without being too jarring especially against the minimalist, white interiors that cafes absolutely love of the late. It’s undeniable to say Wheeler’s Yard has come quite far since being the new kid on the scene; from a Instagram checkpoint, to a favourite of its own audience that it appeals to — a place good for casual brunch, occasions and catch-ups alike that one should check out at least once.
