Service staff was friendly and kindly gave us a short preview of their popular flavours. We had the smoked cheese (right) and ube (left). Scoops were rather generous. Personally preferred the ube aka yam in terms of taste, although it could be improved as there were some ice crystals within. Smoked cheese ice cream, which is quite unusual imo, was nice at the beginning but after a while it got a bit too overwhelming for me. Probably good for sharing not for solo. Total cost came up to $5 for 2 scoops 👍

Each All Star Combo Set was made up of 2 small portions of meat accompanied with rice, salad, pickled radish and a katsu dipping sauce. For the meats, we had the grilled lamb (spicy), sirloin steak, tonkatsu and sirloin katsu. Total bill came up to about $41 for 2 pax after GST and service charge.

Grilled lamb (spicy) had a nice gochujang-based sauce which went very well with rice. The breading for both katsu were light and crispy but not greasy, which made it very enjoyable. Sirloin steak was well-seasoned, almost melt-in-your-mouth kind of texture apart from some sort of ligament that was not removed and made it difficult to chew.

It's a rather small restaurant with very limited seating. We went on the night before Christmas Eve but it was pretty quiet with only a few dine-in customers. However, online orders were pouring in, as we stood outside the shop waiting for close to 10 mins to be seated. We eventually walked ourselves in.

Even though service was lacking at the beginning, the food definitely made up for it and we would probably return for the hamburg steak in the future and when I crave for a good katsu that doesn't cost a fortune (comes up slightly cheaper than some katsu specialty places). Side note: drinks might not be worth it.

Went on a Friday night. It was somewhat crowded although we didn't have to queue. Burpple beyond 1-for-1 deal was not really the case. We were told to order a dessert (in souffle or bingsu series) worth > $12 and get the Mango Sago with Pomelo (not applicable for durian) or Red Bean Paste for free.

Pictured here is the Mochi Snow Ice ($16.90) and the Mango Sago with Pomelo (worth $6.90). Total bill came up to $16.90 with no GST/Service Charge.

Mochi snow ice was a complete letdown - we expected something similar to injeolmi bingsu but it certainly took on a Chinese muah chee with peanuts style and to top it off, there was a lack of milk/sweetness in the shaved ice and tasted absolutely bland. But maybe it's our fault for being careless to assume it would take on a bingsu-like style. Beneath the shaved ice was some sweet yellow kids cereal. Vanilla ice cream certainly tasted like Wall's ice cream, not some sort of premium brand you might expect for this price tag. Mango sago with pomelo was probably the saving grace for the meal. It was pretty gao and not watered down.

Despite the insta-worthy environment with its neon lights, blue interior and ballpit, the food offerings leave more to be desired. Adhering to the Burpple deal is one for a start as we felt a bit scammed at the end of the meal by the limited food choices and the mochi "bingsu" itself. Certainly not a place I would return to.
