Please note: This is NOT a 1-for-1 deal, the deal is misleading! The staff told me that it is only $13 off, as they referred to the estimated savings stated as $13 on the deals page - even though it clearly states with the 1-for-1 deal. When I tried to redirect them to the “1-for-1” phrase, they then said that only the lowest price item will be free - on the receipt they actually split the $17 dish into $13+$4.

I’ve redeemed hundreds of Burpple deals but have never encountered any merchant referring to that line.

I actually ordered two $17 dishes but they only deducted $13. Would be clearer if they renamed their deal to “$13 off” instead, or a fineprint somewhere that it is “up to $13 off”. This deal would only effectively be 1-for-1 if you ordered the congee, which is $13.

Food was otherwise alright, definitely very pricey for the small amounts served but I guess we are at an airport after all.

A local favourite - Hokkien Mee, with prawns, squid, and roast pork. Clean and healthy tasting, yet still retaining a very flavourful profile - the prawn broth really shone through in this one. Ingredients were generous and fresh, and overall the dish was fragrant and delicious despite not having that “burnt” taste (which some people associate with wokhei) that some would seek - the chef shared that he wanted to avoid that to create a clean dish. Definitely an interesting take on our familiar street food dish, which the chef skilfully put his own spin on.

This is a place to consider if you’re looking for some local dishes - but want the food to be more “atas” and “clean”. You can also enjoy the more premium local food in a cozy air-conditioned cafe setting, in which decor is also slightly reminiscent of the old days.

Burpple Beyond members can enjoy 1 for 1 deals here too!

Thank you Burpple for the invite!

Pork was flavourful and braised till very tender - really enjoyed its mouthfeel. It’s served with sauerkraut, shiitake mushroom, vegetables, braised lava egg and tau kwa, over a bowl of rice.

The restaurant’s signature pork belly simmered in an aromatic tamarind stew, served with tau kwa and chillies. A very flavourful dish with the spices really shining through. The pork belly was super fatty (more fats than meat honestly, and whether that is a good or bad thing is up to you), it literally melts in your mouth.

Burpple Beyond also has a set meal deal here - we didn’t use it this time as we decided to order ala carte.

If you ignore the fact that it’s supposed to be chap chye, it actually tastes quite nice and fragrant - like an ordinary vegetable dish braised in mushroom stock. However seeing that it’s named chap chye, I felt that it was lacking in the bean paste taste, that would’ve really made it much more flavourful. It’s still nice though, regardless.

Tasted like Singapore Curry Chicken in a sandwich, essentially, accompanied by refreshing tzatziki, corn & jalapeño slaw, as well as a runny sunny up egg to tie everything together nicely.

Visited on a Sunday morning and they were already quite busy - seats are relatively easy to get in the morning if you don’t mind the outdoor seating.

Loaded sandwich filled with chunky smoked spicy Italian sausage, succotash, avocado and nacho cheese. A yummy and filling sandwich, which had a nice breakfast yet snack-ish vibe to it. A treat with huge sausages like these, who can complain?

American-style burgers and fries - which also come in American-style serving size, it seems. Food was generally not bad and serving size was quite generous. Overall value for money with the 1-for-1 Burpple deal.

Service was good - the staff were so friendly. As always love the music they play at Hard Rock. Would come back if I were using the Burpple deal.

A standard Eggs Benedict but the Hollandaise sauce was pretty minimal and the poached egg was slightly overcooked, leading to quite a dry dish. We think their cakes are much better than their mains. Fortunately there’s the Burpple 1-for-1 Brunch deal so it made the food a lot more reasonably priced.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and the place wasn’t too crowded. The staff were friendly and the overall atmosphere of the cafe was warm and cozy.

Pretty standard breakfast set - each element was executed well. Nothing amazing or special though.

Honestly $28 seems quite high of a price tag for what’s actually on the plate, though there is no additional GST or service charge, which was a pleasant surprise. We used the Burpple 1-for-1 Brunch deal so it made it more reasonably priced.

Pretty yummy sandwiches here, a little bit towards the smaller side but alright if you’re not too hungry or if you’re planning to get some sides.

The Kurobuta Bacon was thin and crispy, perfect with the guacamole. The furikake aioli was a nice fusion touch. Along with the sunny side egg (there’s just something so satisfying about eggs in sandwiches), roasted pickled tomatoes and greens, the ingredients in this sandwich make it a great brunch pick.

The Sammies here are made with freshly baked Shokupan bread, which was soft and fluffy. I personally would’ve preferred if the bread slices were slightly thicker because well, I love bread!

The Burpple 1-for-1 deal made the sandwich quite an okay deal, otherwise I would’ve thought that the size of the sandwich is pretty small for its price. Wouldn’t get it on its own definitely. A pity there’s only one deal on Burpple Beyond for Sammies!

We visited on a weekend morning and it wasn’t too busy. There’s quite a bit of seating space on the second floor.

The tonkatsu was tender and juicy, went really well with the teriyaki mustard for some savoury zing. The pickled golden pear and greens balanced all the flavours in the sandwich out and added a refreshing crunch too. The Gouda cheese was a nice addition but it wasn’t melted in our sandwich which I found was a bit wasted - it was just a solid slice (on the menu it’s indicated that it’s supposed to be melted). Melted cheese in sandwiches is kinda the cherry on top for me.
