From the Burpple community

Cozy cafe with soothing vibes! Great for all occassions! The truffle pasta was delicious,though a little jelat (too creamy) towards the end. Overall a pleasant experience.

Was in the area today and decided to have brunch here! Here’s what we ordered:

• The Assembly Brunch (smoked salmon)
• Umami Prawn
• Osmanthus sencha
• Iced lemon tea

Not included in Burpple deal: Sweet & spicy pork bites (We added this on separately to share!)

Total bill: $47.10 (incl. GST & Service charge)

It’s not my first time here, I like their food and have been to both of their outlets a couple of times! My first time ordering their brunch option though – be warned that it is a VERY generous portion. My boyfriend couldn’t finish it 🥲 Have ordered the umami prawn a couple of times and it has always been consistently good! Hint of umami, butter and seafood. Portion was a little big today though. As for the sweet & spicy pork bites, I’m glad to announce that the reviews did not disappoint! It was crisp and juicy, and not very fatty. It paired very well with the kicap manis dip! (In fact, the kurobuta sausage from the brunch paired very well with the dip too)

Last but not least, the ice cooler osmanthus sencha was so good! (Can’t say the same about the iced lemon tea though) The drink was light and floral, and sweetened perfectly with honey. I really enjoyed this drink 👍🏼

Second time ordering this after being very impressed the first time and having given a great review previously. However, consistency may be an issue here and the beef this time was somewhat ... lacklustre and didn't taste as great as before. The beef wasn't as juicy, and appeared to be of an inferior cut. Hope this was simply an anomaly. Service was good though. Rating: 6.7/10


Pasta is done al dente and its sauce is nice and savoury which goes well with the beef.


ordered the truffle carbonara and miso pork. pork was really tender and well seasoned. generous portion for the pasta and the egg was cooked perfectly with a runny yolk. would be back!

THIS. Order this. You won't regret it.
Quite aside from the generous portions, this isn't your usual minced beef patty. Rather, you get two sizeable cuts of (purportedly) wagyu beef that's very tender and juicy. For the price of $25, this is value for money. Will most definitely come back simply for more of this 😋 Rating 8.8/10
