After trying the delectable brunch at Burpz Cafe, I was back again. This time, I came with my best friend for dinner. Apart from the usual local eateries like coffeeshops and food centres , it is great to have something different and unique for a change in the Ang Mo Kio neighbourhood. Furthermore, I love this tranquil and cosy ambience where I can dine and catch up with my friends and family. It is indeed a great place for gatherings.

We ordered a bowl of mushroom soup, which was the soup of the day. The soup, filled with mushroom bits, had a nice aroma of mushroom fragrance. By smelling this aroma, I was already salivating. This was a scrumptious bowl of soup and was highly recommended. (Food rating: 4/5)

If you love fries but were watching your weight, why not order yourself a portion of oven-baked truffle fries? The fries were baked in the hot oven and then drizzled with truffle oil. So what are truffles? Truffles are fungi that grow underground. As the truffle matures, the fungus dispels aromatic compound that attract animals. It is this marvelous aroma that gives truffles their flavour and makes them so desirable. When the truffle fries were served, the rich truffle fragrance filled the room. The size and thickness of the fries were just nice. Each piece was evenly drizzled with the oil. The fries were crispy on the outside and soft in the insides. It was simply divine that we could not stop eating it. (Food rating: 4/5)

Seafood Marinara Pasta, comprised of spaghetti, prawns, squid, mussels and Burpz's homemade sauce, surprised me. The pasta was perfectly cooked in the al dente style, just the texture I love. The tomato sauce was delicious and mildly sweet. The pasta did not need any garnish or condiments as you could just eat it on its own. As for the seafood, the prawns blew us away. The freshly cooked prawns and squids were crunchy. You would know that they were fresh at one bite. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

We could not resist ordering a half portion of Beer Can Chicken as we had never eaten chicken cooked this way. The chicken was very moist and tender, when served. The chicken breast was not dry at all and the chicken was easy to pull apart. We attacked the chicken skin immediately and the marination was nice. The skin could be crispier. The Beer Can Chicken came with fries and garlic-sauteed carrots and broccoli. (Food rating: 3/5)

Imagine two women feasting at the table full of food like a buffet table, we were almost done and could not eat anymore. Finally, the last dish - Lamb Shank in Guinness. WOW! I must say that this was a gastronomical delight and was worth the wait. This plate heaped with carrots and ambrosial lamb shank. The lamb was soft and moist, and it disintegrated very easily. The carrots were very soft and the sauce was very heavenly. Even when we were almost full, we emptied the lip-smacking dish. It was the highlight of our entire dining experience.

Recommended by my friend, I met a group of ex-colleagues for lunch at Burpz Cafe and Bakery. I was greeted by their warm and friendly staff. As for the interior setting, the simple and cosy atmosphere made me feel warm and comfortable. The restaurant used wood materials as part of their decorations and furniture that gave a modern and contemporary setting. Next to the counter, you can see and smell the nice aroma of the three freshly baked types of bread which were available for sale. These include the baguette, walnut and raisin bread, and white bread. A simple modern setting that advocates self-service where customers can pick up condiments like chilli, etc and ice water at the self-collection point.

We ordered four entrees and one dessert to share. As we were indecisive, we asked the staff to recommend for us. Apparently, brunch was served between 11.30am and 2.30pm. We spent SGD68.25 for four persons.

I really love the tranquility with ambience at Burpz Cafe and would love to go back again soon.

Look at the freshly baked loaves of bread in front of the counter. Baguette, Nuts and Raisin bread, and white bread were on sale today.

Americano Long Shot

Camomile Dream Tea was so relaxing and gentle to the stomach.

If you like Korean Kimchi pancakes, you should try Burpz's Special Korean Pancakes. The dish was comprised of pan-fried pancakes topped with grilled bananas and chopped nuts and finally, drizzled with syrup. It tasted both savoury and sweet. The chopped nuts gave the savoury pancakes the extra crunch. Liked the texture of the pancakes! (Food rating: 3/5)

Beer, sausages, peas, carrots, onions, and mashed potatoes are the ingredients to make this Beer Braised Sausages and Peas with Mash Potatoes. Did you just read "Beer"? Yes, you did. The beautiful boiled sausages and delicious mashed potatoes in the yummy beer sauce. The mashed potatoes were rich with a couple of small potato chunks. Of course, you will not get drunk after that. I could taste the juice seeping out from the sausage when I took the first bite. (Food rating: 3/5)

One of my favourite brunch or breakfast dish is the Eggs Benedict. I ordered a Smoked Salmon Egg Benedict which comprised of poached eggs served over smoked salmon and toast and topped with homemade Hollandaise sauce. The smoked salmon slices were delicious. I loved having a small portion of toast, egg, salmon and hollandaise sauce all at once in my mouth. It was delicious! (Food rating: 3.5/5)

The highlight of today's meal was Burpz's Savoury Beer Tart, which comprised of beer, onion, mushrooms, leeks, mixed cheese on puff pastry. The crispy puff pastry topped with mushrooms and mixed cheese were aromatic. The beer tart blew me away. I was immensely addicted to this tart. I ate most of the entire tart, forgetting to share with my friends. :P (Food rating: 4/5)

Never finish a meal without a sweet dessert, says I. We ordered a slice of Salted Caramel Mud Cake to share after a sumptuous meal. The two layer cake comprised of a mud cake topped with salted caramel. I was blown away. The mud cake was very rich in chocolate - my favourite. Initially, I thought that the caramel would taste too sweet. Instead, the sweetness was just nice. Eating both mud cake and salted caramel custard/mousse together was heavenly. This lip-smacking dessert is a must have!! (Food rating: 4/5)
