This is a like a stuffd kiosk, where u pick the protein, veg, and sauces. Their pita was flat like a wrap, just in a pita pocket shape. Not a fan. Thankfully, the filling was p decent - I liked the falafel, which was slightly crunch, nicely spiced and crumbly. For the fresh veg, I got tomato, purple cabbage, lettuce (not iceberg), cucumbers, black and green olives. They were crunchy and not too stale. There’s 3 sauces - hummus, garlic yogurt, and a homemade sauce. I got the non-spicy ones! They placed the filled pita on a panini press, making it piping hot when served. Overall I enjoyed it other than the lacklustre pita pocket (it feels like it’s from a supermarket packet), idm having it again but it’s not something I would crave for (unlike miznon 🤪).

Beef Ragout and Eggplant melting into each other. Tahini, Pickles, Chili and Parsley. Beef ragout was alright, flavour was good but I am not a fan of minced beef which was used. But the eggplant!!! Super delicious. Some were charred so it had that smoky flavour, all were soft and tender and literally melting into the beef ragout, vv tasty! There was a rly yummy creamy buttery thing in there too, think it was bechamel? Tahini added another dimension of flavour, while the pickles, chili and parsley provided a much needed refreshing element to cut through the heavier flavours. Pita was as usual, super fluffy and wonderful. It’s super saucy so it’s v moist, and I think they added olive oil too. Downside is that it can get pretty messy, and the pita becomes soggy at the very end. Nonetheless, yet another flavour they have done well and I will be back to eat my way through the flavours!

We got 5 dips/spreads (from left to right): spinach, eggplant, Persian yogurt, walnut, hummus.

In general, compared to greek ones, I feel like these were healthier, not as salty / strongly flavoured. Could be interpreted as plain, but as someone with a lighter palate, I liked it! I particularly enjoyed the spinach (borani esfanaj), which was very flavourful, probably due to the sweet onions within, as well as the Persian yogurt (mast), which was served cold and was rather thick with a pleasant sour flavour. The walnut (muhamara) was p good and rather interesting - nutty and sweet from the bell peppers mixed in. Kinda like upgraded nut butter. Hummus was alright, it’s tasty but I’ve had better, and the others outshone it. Eggplant (kash-e bademjan) was like babaganoush but more fibrous, would have preferred it to be more smoky but it was still rather tasty.

All the charcoal grilled items come with a bowl of rice! The basmati rice was very light and all the grains were separated, decently fluffy. It could have been more aromatic though.

We managed to feed 6 with this. Minced lamb was a bit gamey but was still alright with it bc it’s pretty juicy. Both the chicken and fish were tender and succulent, prawn was well marinated and firm, tho it did kinda taste like shrimp, not prawn? Beef was done medium rare, juicy and not tough. Came with some greens, which were decent. I liked that the meats were all properly done, none of them fell short!

Tono is now permanently closed, but they are back in the form of canchita at dempsey. Burpple would y’all please consider listing canchita on beyond? :)

I first discovered tono because it was available on burpple beyond. The ceviche in the foreground was the star of the outstanding meal at tono. This was composed of market fish which tasted very fresh; crispy baby calamari that had a very light batter so it didn’t feel greasy as all; purple potato where the natural sweetness shone through; smoked aji amarillo tiger’s milk (the sauce) which was really good. The smokiness + refreshing elements of the sauce really blew us away! The other dishes were also very tasty.

Also, the service is outstanding! The waiter was very friendly and kept coming by to talk to us / clear our plates / refill our glasses of water. He also gave good dish recommendations.

Truly the best meal I’ve discovered through burpple! :)

Each plate of mezze was pretty delicious, but I found myself reaching out for the babaganoush the most! It was smoky and flavourful. The hummus was tasty as well, and the crab tzatziki was refreshing as it was cold.

Okay we did not foresee ordering 4 bags of bread in total. But we couldn’t resist because the bread was warm, fluffy, with great texture. Good on its own, also good with the mezzes!

Crisp tater tots along with sour cream, coriander and garlic ghee - how can this not be delicious? This is like a slightly elevated version of tater tots because of the sauce. Great for sharing!

A pity they changed out the hashbrown cube, but this should suffice.

Cauliflower was tasty, and the rice was fluffy and flavourful too. I liked the addition of the pomegranates! Thought this was not bad, but I had expected much more.

Mixed feelings about this - whilst it wasn’t dry, I’ve had more tender pork jowl. But it was still decent, and a quick squeeze of the lime elevated the flavours. Some of my friends really liked this though, so to each their own!

Unlike the rest of Singapore I am not that big a fan of fried chicken because health :p But WOW this dish really impressed me with the crisp batter and tender chicken, coupled with the tasty garlic whip sauce. I was so amazed that even though the chicken was quite lean and didn’t have the fatty chicken bits that I usually peel out, the chicken was still super joosy. Possibly the best fried chicken I’ve had. Definitely a must-order!
