A recent lunch I had with a friend who recently subscribed to burpple mentioned that some establishments can be found on eatigo or other food platforms “and you don’t pay for those...” he commented. But I quickly raised that there are those places that you’d hardly get any sorts of discounts at but burpple and South Union Park (SUP) is a prime example.
I’ve been here twice for brunch then dinner and was only very impressed on the first visit; dinner here fell short of expectations with an underwhelming baby back ribs main we had. But with Burpplebeyond I was determined to return and sooner than expected I found myself revelling in what I first fell in love with; SUP’s chicken liver pate. Shortly after everything I’d wished for on plate: poached salmon that had not one trace of what I always feared in slabs of fish, sapless poor textured white meat. The fish sad on a bed of spinach and zucchini swimming in a shallow pool of sorrel cream that I polished off the plate.
Another note: SUP hand makes their pastas which means you definitely should try them because handmade wet pastas are quite recherché at least in my sphere of the SG F&B scene.
Lastly, the fish and chips here employs a barramundi fillet as opposed to common dory/ sea bass fillets; this along side an in house coleslaw with red cabbage, a testimony to SUP’s emphasis on using good quality ingredients, something I look for in every menu earnestly crafted by chefs.
