Meet 4 Meat

We’d probably be just as excited as Burppler Kris Lim if a coffeeshop stall run by an ex-Wooloomooloo Steakhouse chef sprung up in our hood. You can tuck into fresh pasta (fettuccine or cheese ravioli, from $6) prepared four ways: aglio olio, carbonara, three-hour bolognese and pesto. There’s also a small selection of charcoal-grilled proteins to look forward to, such as butter poached pork chop and marinated lamb cutlets.

Eng’s Wantan Noodles

Missed the springy noodles and fiery chilli from Eng’s Noodles House? You’ll be pleased to know that they’ve reopened as Eng’s Wantan Noodles in the same location with the original chefs and kitchen crew, not to mention the same prices too ($4.50 for medium, $5.50 for large)! If the queue gets too long, you can leg on over to the other offshoot, Eng’s Char Siew Wantan Mee, which will pop up across the street very soon. Try both and tell us what you think!

Easties can now get their burger fix from this Burpple Hawker Hot 100 2018 (Central) winner’s new outlet within Centuries Food Court in Viva Business Park. There are a few items on the menu unique to this outlet including the Korean Bulgogi Burger ($5.90 for single, $7.90 for double) and The Viva Classic ($5.50 for single, $8 for double), which comes slathered in marinara sauce and mozzarella. Burppler Zul Latiff couldn’t stop singing praises about the latter and its winning combination “that packed a two-Mach punch of taste”!

Trust Burppler Xing Wei Chua to unearth this Vietnamese gem in its new location in Toa Payoh. Previously located in the CBD, the one-woman show stall dishes out home-style classics made with lots of love. These include the Bun Thit Nuong Cha Gio ($6.90, grilled pork with fried spring roll noodles), Pho (from $6.50) and Banh Mi ($6.50).

Donya Japanese Cuisine

Next time you’re craving for Donya Japanese Cuisine’s pocket-friendly bowls, head to their new, centrally-located outlet in Bugis instead. The beauty of this outlet is that since the other stalls don’t operate for dinner, there are plenty of seats! Thanks Burppler Seanna Lim for sharing this great alternative! If it’s your first time, take her advice and order the Unagi Tama Don ($8.80).
