This was delicious! The tiger prawns were pretty big and its breadcrumbed layer was cooked well till crisp. The whole presentation of the dish was very pleasing to the eye as well. I love the colours and the way the prawns were angled - it kind of looks like waves in the ocean. We cleaned the entire bowl really quickly once it was served.

I would definitely come back again - Misato’s concept of delivering great quality Japanese food at affordable prices is right up my alley!

It would be wise to come a little earlier or on non-peak periods to avoid having to queue.

Pretty decent ribeye! The sides were a little miserable however, with that one tiny baby potato at the side. 😅
Definitely not worth it without any deal, but with 1 for 1 it’s pretty alright. Just note that there’s still GST and Service Charge on top of it all.

We visited on a weekday evening and seats were readily available, though you can also make a reservation with Chope if you’re worried. The ambience was very casual actually, the place had a modern eatery (slightly canteen-ish vibes) aesthetic. Service was exemplary, which was something that pleasantly surprised me.

A safe pick - the ramen was springy, the pork bone broth was silky and full of flavour. The place has free flow bean sprouts and hard boiled eggs as well. For this price, I think this bowl and its unlimited accompaniments is very worth it!

No wonder there are always snaking long queues during dinner times - fortunately we came at about 6pm, right before the crowds started filling in, so we didn’t need to queue at all.

This is somewhere I’d definitely go to if I’m starving!

Pretty good, met our expectations. Skin was crispy, meat was tender. Dips were great too, there was raspberry sauce, calamansi chilli, and yellow mustard. All had a different flavour profile and it was nice varying the dips with the duck meat.

We visited on a weekend so we could get 15% off our bill with Burpple Beyond. If you visit on a weekday (Monday to Thursday specifically), you can enjoy 30% off the bill!

Despite its atas menu, the restaurant looks quite unassuming, and the atmosphere is more of a cross between a restaurant and an eatery. Great for casual occasions!

Want to feel like a tourist? Well, head down to Menbaka Fire Ramen where you can see your bowl of ramen light up in flames right in front of you, and have the entire experience plus your reactions video-captured on your very own mobile device. The staff kindly also help you to take a group photo with the bowls of ramen thereafter.

Kinda gimmicky, but honestly quite a fun experience with friends. We felt a little bit shy when the whole restaurant’s staffs applauded at the end of the fire show, since we were seated in front of the counter wearing the white bibs they provided, waiting for our ramen to be cooked. It was a nice laugh and giggle though, as we waddled back to our table after the “Fire Experience” was complete.

Tastewise, the ramen broths were a little too oily for our liking but nevertheless quite tasty - you can taste the charring from the fire experience too. Charsiew and ramen were both standard. I do wish the serving size for the ramen was slightly bigger - more meat, more noodles, to make it more worth it. The set also comes with 2 hard boiled eggs, 6 pieces of gyoza, 2 cups of ocha, and 2 scoops of sweet milk sake ice cream. Do note that water is not free here, so bring your own water or be ready to pay for it!

Service was really spectacular I have to say, the staff were very friendly and thoughtful. We initially got a small table and had to squeeze a little, but once another group beside us left, they cleared the table and brought it over to us, to make us more comfortable, and provide us with more chairs for us to place our bags in. I thought that was a nice gesture of them.

Overall - an experience and meal I was glad I tried with my friends! I’m not sure if I would come back again unless someone wanted to go through the experience again, since it was more like a “been-there-done-that” sort of thing for me. I don’t think I would pay this price just for the food, without the experience. But it’s definitely worth a try, just for fun :)

We wanted to use the Burpple deals here but actually the menu itself already had the 1-for-1 set deals, so no Burpple Beyond is needed really. We visited on a weekday evening and it was rather busy - fortunately we managed to get seats for three of us!

Behold, 800 grams of pure indulgence. The ribs were well seasoned with the restaurant’s signature spice blend, and glazed with their house-made barbecue sauce. Each bite of the tender, grilled meat was nothing but tasty.

The sides - fries, coleslaw and ranch-style beans - were very welcomed, to give my taste buds a break from the strong tasting barbecue sauce hahaha. The sides were all quite standard.

I was so excited when I found out that you could use the Burpple 1-for-1 deal on these ribs! It made it extremely worth it. If you’re planning on giving yourself a treat, this is a great place to head to.

The ambience was great, it was quite busy even though it was just a mid-week evening, but that created a nice bustling atmosphere amongst the social distancing measures. Being avid fans of rock music, we enjoyed the music there, only a pity that the song request system didn’t seem to be working.

Overall, Hard Rock Cafe is more than just a restaurant, it’s an experience, made affordable with the Burpple deals. I definitely see myself coming back for such attractive deals!

A solid unagi bowl, yum! The saucy unagi was great, and the onsen egg really added that creaminess to the dish. I thought that the ratio of sauce and seasoning to rice was perfect - the amount of it was such that the Japanese rice was adequately flavoured and moistened, but not to an overwhelming amount.
I appreciated this very much, because sometimes with other bowls, I find myself struggling to finish large amounts of white rice with no more sauce to accompany it with. But over here they did it well!

Worth it with the Burpple deal - you can pick any 2 dons from the donburi category and any 2 alcoholic drinks from the beer/highball category.

We visited on a weekday evening and it wasn’t too crowded although I did notice a fair amount of reservations in the indoor seating area. I actually preferred the outdoor seating, as the ambience was amazing, with the Japanese lanterns hanging at the top and all. Service was great too, the staff were very friendly.

Pretty average, quite salty and slightly spicy - typical of your usual Chinese BBQ. Definitely worth it for the price with the Burpple 1-for-1 though. You can mix and match any skewers however those that are priced below $2 will require you to buy at least 2 of each.

I would’ve preferred if we could vary the spices between the skewers because after awhile everything started to taste similar since the spices used are all the same. I was so thirsty after the meal, so maybe you should bring along plenty of water! (No tap water provided)

We visited on a Monday evening and managed to get seats for two. It did slowly fill up as the evening progressed but nothing too bustling, so I think it’s a pretty safe pick if you don’t want to reserve in advance or queue. Service was pretty good!

The pork cutlets were slightly tough to chew, there wasn’t much egg and the rice was quite dry and tasteless. I wouldn’t recommend this dish - perhaps give the others a go.

We got this with the Burpple 1-for-1 deal, which makes it very affordable. It comes with a small bowl of miso soup as well. Do note the prices on the menu do not include service charge and GST.

Staff were friendly, and the decor of the place is pretty cozy and Japanese-themed. We visited on a weekday evening and easily managed to get seats for two.

Nothing outstanding, just a bowl of comforting udon in soup. I loved that it was served piping hot, every sip of the warm dashi broth sent a gentle, soothing wave through my body. The fried tofu, fish cake and scallions were great accompaniments.

The name says it all. A healthy version of an apple crumble, in an oats bowl form. It was a sweet and comforting breakfast bowl, made of apple chunks, raisins, cinnamon, oats and honey. You can’t go wrong with this combination!

Would recommend giving this place a shot if you’re into health foods. We visited on a weekend afternoon and easily managed to get seats for three - there’s a second floor which is suuuuper cozy to hang out at. Burpple has a 20% off the bill deal, which makes the food slightly more affordable!

I said this in my other review, but I’ll say it again - the portions here are really generous! I genuinely enjoyed the scrambled eggs and all its healthy accompaniments. You can choose between halloumi cheese or multigrain toast.

I really loved the combination of the saltiness of the halloumi and feta cheese, with the sweetness of the cranberries - and the creaminess of the scrambled eggs and avocados sorta brings the different tastes altogether. Who knew that healthy eating could be this delicious?
