For Indulgent Pleasures: Asian-Fusion Feasts
Everyone’s go-to for a night of drinking and feasting, this restaurant in CHIJMES is well-known for their Prawn & Seaweed Aglio Olio ($25), which Burppler Maureen Ow describes as “juicy tiger prawns with pasta tossed in crustaceans-infused oil and topped with Japanese seaweed”. Perfect for sharing would be the Mushroom & Truffle ($23) and Okonomiyaki ($25) flatbread pizza, which sees a rendition of the Japanese okonomiyaki atop a crispy flatbread. Use your second Burpple Beyond deal for 1-for-1 Heineken or switch it up with a non-alcoholic choice.

PPP Coffee: 1-for-1 Espresso Soft Serve (save ~$6.50)ppp coffeePhoto by Burppler Vanessa Kou | *Deal Expiry Date: 30 Sep 2022    

For Sweet Pleasures: Creamy Espresso Softserve
Looking for a sweet, caffeine kick in between the SWF events? PPP is your place. Unwind over a round of Flat White ($6.50) and signature Papa’s Iced Coffee ($8.50), featuring a twist of the classic iced latte with homemade coffee jelly. Don’t miss out on the Espresso Soft Serve ($6.50) that had Burppler Vanessa Kou raving about the “perfectly flavoured” swirls. “The aftertaste was pleasant as well, as the distinct astringency of the espresso was gently masked with a delicate milky sweetness. Paired with almond brittles and granola (with dried cranberry) bits, the added textures were very much welcome.” Sounds like the perfect perk-me-up!
