Dish: The Jumbo beef burger delivered what it promised. Portion was big and the patty was so juicy and flavourful. Presentation also made it look very appetising. I would compare it to MacDonald double cheeseburger on steroids (in a good way). Drinks were horribly bland though.

Price: Great value with the 1 for 1 deal. My friend and I paid around $11 each for meal and drink. Drinks aside, I would say the non-promotional price would be acceptable for the quality of food we are getting.

Verdict: Can’t wait to try the voucher with the cake. Will probably visit it with or without the voucher if I’m feeling fancy cafe food but I don’t wanna travel to town.

Dish: We got the Fish Taco, Corn Bread, the Wagyu Hanger Steak and a Gin Sour. The Fish Taco was served as 2 bite-sized pieces and was just okay. The wagyu steak was delicious, melt-in-your-mouth goodness. However, the star of the night got to be the cornbread with smoked butter. I don't know what magic is in the smoked butter but I really liked it, maybe even more than the steak. The Gin Sour wasn't that great of a cocktail, perhaps abit too diluted.

Price: Despite sharing the steak, the bill racked up to over $110. As I don't fine dine often, I am not able to make a fair evaluation of the value of the meal, compared to other fine dining places.

Final Verdict: Skip the Fish Taco and just go with the cornbread, or even 2. It was a great meal but the price point is just way out of what I can afford, so I doubt I will visit Meatsmith again unless there's a promotion.

Dish: I ordered the Black Pepper Chicken Chop while my friend ordered the Truffle Shitake Linguine. There was nothing special about the chicken chop but the fries were great. The truffle shitake linguine was pretty decent. And I would point out that they were generous with the mushroom and the mushroom was really good. The mains were average at best.

For dessert, we both got the tiramisu. It was more like tiramisu cake than actual tiramisu but still good cake. As quoted by my friend, it was better than her birthday cake.

Value: Using the 1-for-1 main and dessert deal on burpple beyond, the meal was definitely value for money. But I would find it difficult to recommend dining at Lowercase without any discount.

Final verdict: While the food we had wasn't particularly outstanding, the menu is extensive and I would try their more popular menu items like the egg bens the next time I return.

All in all, it is a very nice environment to catch up with a friend or even do work, with free wifi and power points to charge your laptop.

Dish: Ordered the Beef Onsen Egg Curry Udon while my friend ordered the Black Garlic Tonkatsu Ramen. The Beef Onsen Egg Curry Udon was perfect even for a non-curry and non-udon lover like me. The curry wasn't too thick or heavy and tasted great, and there was just enough meat for each spoon of udon. My friend, on the other hand, found the Black Garlic Tonkatsu Ramen underwhelming but that's what you get for ordering ramen at a udon place. Tempura is so-so.

Price: We got the main, tempura and drink using the burpple 1-for-1 deal so it was really worth it. Even without the deal, I think the price range is decent for the mains.

Final verdict: Get the udon, not the ramen. The mains are satisfying on its own, so I'll say go without the tempura unless you are using the 1-for-1 deal.

Dish: Shared a fish quesadilla and pork quesadilla with my friend. They used a pretty good quality fish for the fish quesadilla. While it was supposed to be battered and fried, the fish was pretty mushy in the quesadilla, which could make or break the dish. I personally liked how the flavours of the fish blended with the dish, but also disappointed in the lack of texture. The pork quesadilla was definitely more delectable. Though lacking a bit in the flavour department, the pork was tender and plentiful. Tried a bit of my friend's steak burrito too. The steak was tender too, but even less flavourful than the pork.

Price: Had 50% off the entire bill as they were having a promotion for frontliners. It was definitely great value for what we paid ($6 for 1 whole quesadilla). The serving sizes are huge. Get the burrito if you are super hungry.

Final verdict: Would come back without the promotion to try the burrito! Get the pork filling if you are craving meat and the fish filling if you want something healthier :)
