relishin' some radish While this modernised version may not appease lovers of strictly traditional fried carrot cake, XYT Chai Tow Kway ($16) is a somewhat deconstructed take on the iconic Singaporean dish, with scrambled eggs, cubes of moreish crispy-edged homemade radish cake and radish slices (staying true to the main ingredient here I see). In my opinion, the trio of spicy minced pork, dried shrimp and XO sauce takes centre stage here, with a hint of sweetness as well, giving the eggs additional oomph. This is a dish easy on the eyes, and also on the palate; an interpretation I can totally swing with. ☺

unagive me a break Arguably their most popular brunch dish, the Unagi Benedict ($16), consists of a low temp. egg drenched in yuzukoshô hollandaise with a slab of gorgeously glazed unagi (the soft, fatty kind) on top, sandwiched between fried mantou. Sounds like a perfect combination, but while I liked the Japanese-esque flavours used, the richness got rather overwhelming. Quite an acquired taste, I guess??? Came with a side of fried prawn & potato chunks (like croquettes), as well as a light ebiko-flecked kewpie mayo salad which helped to balance out the greasiness. Get this to share (trust me on this) and with a drink from their vast selection of cocktails, mocktails, coffee and the likes on standby, as this tends to get very jelat, with some possibly experiencing an 'oily aftertaste'.

Thai Curry Gai( Aka Chicken) 13.8++ Wasn't expecting something so hearty for a fusion restaurant but damn their gravy is rich thick and has a kick. Was skeptical before but after tasting it i can see why it goes well w pasta. It's so thick it's slightly difficult to drink but it's not too good for homely Thai restaurant so it's still rather overpriced without the promotion

Som Tam Carbonara 13.8++ They weren't very sure of the burpple deal and needed some convincing. Also apparently you have to place a reservation using choose before u can use the burpple offer so luckily I did that. Otherwise this was less of a carbonara than a dessert salted egg yolk sauce +pasta+lup Cheong+bits of actual salted egg. First thing you notice immediately is thats it's seriously as sweet as the salted egg yolks desserts and the naturally sweet lup Cheong doesn't help. However I can't say I disliked this. Try it if you dare lol I definitely can't guarantee that you'll like it but some people might be able to tolerate it. Either ways the sauce is extremely rich and I regretted ordering the soup immediately after finishing this even though I'm q a big eater

Salted Egg Chicken This is the best! And I don't even like salted egg usually. I like how the salted egg is smashed and you can get chunks of it in the sauce, which isn't the outright grainy ones but more of a paste? Nicely coating the fried chicken chunks

Knots Cafe and Living Knot's Macaroni & Cheese | $9.90, paired with a cup of Pearl of the Orient (Jasmine Green Tea with Rose Petals) | $6.20《2/5 ⭐️》— The Mac & Cheese got a little "gelat" with every bite, and was a tad too oily for me towards the base. I also decided to order an additional Mushroom Soup | $5.90, from their menu to complement it with the garlic bread that came with the Mac & Cheese. Bad decision. The soup tasted very much like a bowl of mushroom soup infused with coconut milk (?), which I didn't really fancy. Nevertheless, totally love the ambience of this cafe! Really quiet and quaint, and oh, if you love flowers, this is the place for you. 🌼🌸

Nutella Dessert Pizza A unique creation albeit its steep price ($18.90). The mint leaves added a refreshing taste to the pizza and the fruits were not sour at all (thankfully). Also ordered their coffees and cookies&cream icecream which were not too bad. Another quiet place with beautiful interior design (decorated with plants and furnitures) + wifi available = perfect place to do work. Will be back definitely :)

Supreme Pizza Supreme Pizza ($14) For a relaxing Saturday afternoon brunch, consider @knots_cafe_and_living located along Paya Lebar road. Be inspired to decorate your home with little pots of succulents and various other plants greeting you at the entrance. Do also pop by Phylux next door to check out the hipster lights and wide array of ceiling fans available. The Supreme pizza was topped with minced beef, red/green bell peppers, cheddar, mozarella, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni and olives. Overall quite chock full of ingredients so I’m not complaining. Pizza tasted good! Remember to flash your @burpple app if you’re there after 4pm to get 15% off pizzas and pastas, applicable daily.

Knots Wings Knots Wings ($7.90) I picked the spicy option. The Knots Wings looked great against the backdrop of the cafe. I loved how flavourful the skin was seasoned. Great for a mid-day snack!

Burpple Tastemaker Eatup at Healthy Soba IKI Made a trip done to Healthy Soba IKI recently with a couple of Burpple Tastemakers for a Burpple Tastemaker Eatup and tried a selection of their healthy buckwheat soba offerings — they have a menu that boasts quite a good mix of Japanese as well as locally inspired creations such as the Laksa Soba. My personal favourites would be the Collagen Chicken Soba from the Local Signature section of the menu and the Avocado Kaisen Tororo Soba from the Cold section. The former was almost akin to eating chicken rice after the ginger is mixed into the collagen chicken soup base which is not overly rich; comes with a rather generous portion of poached chicken that is immensely tender and also chili oil for those who can't do without chili when having Hainanese Chicken Rice. The Avocado Kaisen Tororo is the crowd pleaser; marinated cubes of raw fish and a lightly savoury cold dipping sauce that is pretty good on its own. Dessert was pretty good — never thought that matcha would work well against strawberry but the Matcha Strawberry Pudding proved us wrong with the bitter aroma of Matcha complimenting and counters the tartness of the strawberries really well. Thanks Healthy Soba IKI for hosting, and Burpple for the invite!

Healthy Sobas & Japanese Rice Bowls I know this cafeteria specialises in soba noodles, but my friend and I found the rice meal offer on FAVE more value-for-money so we got ourselves the Avocado Pepper Duck ($14) and Kaisendon ($15) instead. Compared to other Japanese rice bowls at the same price, I must say that they're really generous with the toppings which are of a good quality too. The avocado was perfectly ripe and creamy, the pepper duck was tender and packed with umami, and the raw fish cubes were fresh. Unfortunately, the rice was a little dry due to a lack of sauce and they could definitely do with more vinegar.

Kaisendon ($14) Shit.. I've been having a lot of rice bowls lately.. Especially my chirashi bowls..anyway decided to heed my colleague's suggestion and get this for lunch.. It was pretty crowded when we got there close to 1pm but luckily we still got a seat :).. The portion of tuna and salmon was really generous! I finished my rice much before my fish..it was fresh and chewy as well :D The miso soup however was weird.. A hint of bitter.. Not my favourite chirashi, but don't mind going back for more :D Food 3.7/5 Oh, the staff was friendly too :D #burpple #kaisendon #chirashi #cbdlunch

Felt the urge to eat healthy tonight, so I went for this soba bowl with less than 500kal! Soba made of buckwheat cooked to al dente perfection, mixed with carrots, cabbages, pumpkins, tomatoes, avocados and peanut dressing. The soba is one of the best tried, we're certainly returning to try other options!

Bland Milkshake (again!) & Petit Fours I had a craving for avocado and decided to risk their milkshake again. This avocado and gula Melaka sounded simple enough but nope, failed again. No avocado taste. Just a creamy dunno-what. So I mixed the gula Melaka as best as I could and pretended it was gula Melaka shake. The mini cakes fared much better. From bottom left clockwise, kaffir lime choc heaven, lemon coconut cake, kaya financier, and apple carrot cake. The choc one was hubby's fav. The bitterness from the kaffir lime made the cake less sweet. Lemon coconut was my favorite. The top was crusty and coconutty. Lemon made it tangy sweet. Kaya was very sweet, but I enjoyed the cheesy cream on top. Apple carrot was so dense and soft with a hint of spice. Wonderful texture. Happened to be seated behind some people shooting promotional video, heard it was for STB. My fur-baby played with the crew and actors and developed a taste for stardom. I had to drag her off for a walk after she tried to video bomb them. 🙈 Sorry STB!

Terrible Cafe, Visit At Your Own Risk Terrible customer service. Found a blog review about them that was really negative but decided to take a chance. Turns out, it wasn't worth the risk. Firstly, when we arrived, no staff bothered to greet us or attend to us. This made us feel slightly at a loss of what to do. Next, we made a reservation so I had to find a staff to inform them about it but apparently, there were no tables reserved. Got thrown around to 3 different staff who did not know what to do with us and just left us standing there. One staff led us to a table which was already occupied by someone else, resulting in a small squabble. Another staff told us to wait outside for the next table but forgot all about us. After 30 minutes, there was a table vacant but they started to give it to a new set of customers that had came in. We had to go to the staff serving them and inform them we were waiting for the table, to which responded reluctantly to give us the table. They didn't even bother about the reservation nor do they pay attention to their customers. Terrible customer service. So next comes the food. This is the Grilled Chicken ($20) which looks terrible in terms of presentation. The earlier fiasco already dampened our moods and the food just didn't help. We will not go back again nor will we ever recommended this place to our family and friends. The effort to drive to such an ulu place was wasted.

Salty Mayo Fries Saw that they brought back the mayo fries, this time with truffle. Truffle scent was barely there but lots of Parmesan cheese. I haven't ordered their fries in a while and forgot to request for no salt. Sigh big mistake. This bowl of fries was really salty. I expected better quality, esp since they increased the price from $12 to $14. I had to sip my latte in between bites to wash out the salt, so even the latte had a salty taste.

Flower Power! They have a new menu! This new wildflower meringue latte intrigued me as soon as I saw the name. So pretty! They dusted hibiscus powder and floated an itty bitty meringue on the latte. I drank from the hibiscus side. The intense sour made me wince. So I grabbed the meringue to save my tongue. The hibiscus totally eliminated the sweetness of the meringue and made the latte sour. Full marks for presentation. Fail for taste. At least hibiscus was supposed to be healthy. So I made hubby finish it. For his health of cos.
