Burp's Beef Crabby Patty Pork Carnitas Tacos Sloppy Joe (sandwich with ground beef) Salted Egg Tofu Fries
Review (9)
Burp Kitchen & Bar is a neighbourhood cafe situated just next to the Bedok reservoir. It is housed under the void deck, at a very secluded area, definitely great for a night chill out with friends.Salted Egg Tofu Fries ($8)I am a great fan of tofu and I actually had quite high expectation for this dish. It seems like an innovative dish that we had not tried before. However, to my disappointment, I couldn't really taste the tofu as the fries were overwhelmed with the very salty salted egg sauce and the skin was rather dry and tough. Another option is that you can request for wasabi mayo sauce to go with the fries instead. However, I do wonder whether tofu nuggets will make a better dish? Next we were served "Duo of Wings" (Burp Kitchen Wings - $10 and Salted Egg Wings - $14)Burp Kitchen Wings, their house wings, were marinated with special adobo sauce, probably inspired by the Philippines cooking style and air-fry. The sauce was flavoursome and I kind of like it. It was tangy and sweet, a bit salty and also tasted a bit garlicky. According to the female boss, Sarah, the sauce was made of apple cider, vinegar, soya sauce and garlic. The chicken wings were tender. However, the marinade did not go beyond the skin and the meat was bland. If not, the wings would taste even better! I overheard the gentleman sitting next to me, advising Sarah to try poking the wings with fork so that the meat can absorb the marinade.The sauce was the same salted egg sauce used in the tofu fries. Same issue as the above, the meat was bland. In fact, I would much prefer the burp kitchen wings marinated with adobo sauce than salted egg sauce. If I am not wrong, the salted egg wings cost $4 more."Duo of Burgers" (Crabby Patty - $18 & Burp's Beef - $16)Crabby Patty - Battered softshell crab, lettuce, salted egg sauce (again!), curry leaves and chilli padi sandwiched between the squid ink buns. Indeed, it is a very instagramable dish. Probably we had too much of salted egg sauce that night. As such, I still prefer having the crispy battered softshell crab on its own without the sauce. It was also served with potato salad. Burp's Beef - At one glance, it looks like an ordinary burger but it tasted good. This was one of my favourite dishes for the night. The burger was made of brioche buns with beef patty, american cheese, caramelized onions, pea sprouts (aka "dou miao") and spicy mayo sauce. The idea of using pea sprouts in burgers is uncommon but it definitely gave you the impression that you are having a healthier burger. I guess for every good dish, there is always room for improvements. I found that the minced beef patty didn't really hold well. As I cut through the burger, the patty sort of fell apart.Chicken Quesadilla ($9)Being a cheese lover, this tortilla wrap with slow-cooked shredded chicken and cheddar/ mozzarella cheese worked well for me. Dip it with the homemade salsa sauce for a more refreshing taste.Duo of Tacos (Pork Carnitas - S12 & Baja Fish - $12)Pork Carnitas - Slow-cooked BBQ pulled pork, coleslaw and salsa fresco. According to Sarah, the pork was slow-cooked for 8 hours! Overall, the taste was sweet. Baja Fish - Battered Fish, Coleslaw, Salsa Fresco and Spicy Mayo. This is probably the most value-for-money dish. Big chunk of battered fish meat wrapped in soft taco skin. I like this dish as well but was too full to savour it all. =)Thank you very much for to OpenRice Singapore and Burp Kitchen & Bar team for the food tasting invitation. I will probably be back this Saturday with a few of my friends after the "Carnival Run" at Bedok reservoir =)Burp Kitchen & Bar740 Bedok Reservoir Road #01-3165S470740 continue reading

Burp kitchen has a nice location at the neighbourhood of Bedok, great for those living in the east and near Bedok reservoir! I'm a westie so definitely it was a challenge to come here. One of my favourite dish would be the Baja Fish Tacos, fish was fresh and it was like Fish and chips (chips being the crispy chips) - $12 Another great dish would be the Crabby Patty - $18, I love soft shell crab and salted egg so this was like the best of both worlds, all in a charcoal brioche bun! I felt a tad too much salt went into batter of the soft shell crab but this can be tweaked and I hope to taste a better burger because this burger has so much potential! Cheese lovers you must try the Chicken Quesadilla, it's so cheesy you will be so excited when you see the cheese stretch! It was kinda salty though. For more salted egg items, check out their Salted Egg Tofu Fries, thickly fried tofu sticks and drizzled on with generous salted egg sauce. Salted Egg wings, a lil overwhelming I'd prefer their Burp Kitchen Wings, sweet and tangy Adobo sauce, Filipino recipe and it's refreshing!  continue reading

For the full review, click / copy the link below to your browser:http://www.chubbybotakkoala.com/2016/03/burp-kitchen-bar.htmlBurp Kitchen & Bar ('Burp'), a little cosy gastropub located at corner of Block 740 Bedok Reservoir Road. When you are seated inside Burp, you can enjoy the scenic view of Bedok Reservoir Park. Opened up by three buddies, Sarah and Ronald are the culinary team in charge to serve you the American with Asian fusion inspired meal at Burp. Following the recent salted egg craze in Singapore F&B scene, Burp offer 3 version of its own salted egg dishes. Salted Egg Tofu Fries ($8); Salted Egg Wings ($14) and Crabby Patty Burger ($18).Rather than using the commonly available French Fries, Burp created their healthy version of fries using tofu. A quick glance it can be mistaken for luncheon meat. After a quick bite tasted like the pipa tofu served in Chinese restaurants. For the chicken wings, it was well fried with crispy skin and succulent meat. The two bases that I mention above is actually pretty good and can be eaten without the salted egg sauce. However as soon as thick salted egg sauce (loaded with chopped curry leaves and chilli padi) are added on top of the tofu fries / wings, it just go haywire. They just do not mixed, like oil and water. The salted egg did not absorb into the wings / tofu, feels like you are eating two different dishes. I feel it will be better, if Burp made the sauce thinner, tossed the salted egg sauce together with wings / tofu when they just come out from the deep fryer. Just like how the Korean do their KFC. It might not look pretty, but it gives consistency to the dishes. Crabby Patty Burger, an unique creation by Burp. Squid ink bun, lettuce, battered soft shell crab, salted egg sauce, curry leaves, chilli padi. Unlike the two dishes above, this crab burger is actually pretty decent. Soft and crisp bun, juicy soft shell crab patties with salted egg sauce. The pores in the batter and crab, allow the sauce to sip into the patties and you get all the ingredients in each bite. Instead of fries, you actually get their homemade potato salad, which was very comforting. Cheese lovers will like the Chicken Quesadilla ($9). The chicken and duo cheese fillings (cheddar and mozzarella) in the tortilla. Tasted like crispy pocket pizza. The tanginess from the tomato salsa verde on the side helps to balance the richness from the combo of duo cheese here. Burp's Beef Burger ($16). A solid beef burger with thick, juicy and meaty beef patties. The crisp brioche bun and spicy mayo really holds the ingredients well together. I personally like their touch of using pea sprouts (aka Dou Miao). A burp signature unique twist that provide the crunchy and healthy taste to the burger. It can do with more caramelized onions and fries (not the potato salad) but overall it was a darn good burger for me. Burp Kitchen Wings ($10), fried wings with special Adobo sauce. Specially created by Sarah, who has Philippines and Chinese blood as a taste that really resonate with her. The sweet and garlic combo in the sauce reminds me of garlic and soy sauce version in Korean FC. I will pick this anytime over the salted egg version. For a truly taste of Taco Tex-Mex, we sampled their Pork Carnitas Taco ($12) and Baja Fish Taco ($12). Two servings of 6” tacos with corn chips in each. The Pork Carnitas uses slow cooked BBQ pulled pork, where you can see each strand of the meat well coated in the BBQ sauce. A squeeze of lime add freshness and tanginess to the delicious dish. Baja Fish Taco is my favourite. I actually went back to try this dish for the second time after the tasting session. Nicely fried crunchy battered fish fillet, wrapped with spicy mayo and salsa fresca. When you bite into it, you will experience multiple texture (crispy, moist, juicy) and flavour (spicy, creamy, fresh, tangy) dancing in your mouth. Definitely a dish that worth to get your finger dirty. On the second visit, I also tried their Blueberry Pancakes ($8). A medium size pancakes, served with blueberry compote and maple syrup. Pancakes was fluffy, airy however there is a bit of stickiness to it making it hard to swallow after the second piece. The serving of blueberry compote is generous. A touch whipped cream or a mini cubes of butter will make the pancake so much better. I have to admit, when I saw Lemon Lime Bitters ($4) on the menu, Burp directly got extra marks from me. My favourite drink from my Uni days down under but not so common in Singapore. The other mocktail, Frozen Willy ($5.50) which has blended mango juice, orange juice and Grenadine is pretty awesome as well. The settings of Burp is simple, rustic, cosy with an industrial touch. Burp is surrounded by glass windows which allow patrons to see the natural view of Bedok Reservoir Park and also attract passer-by to peek into Burp. Overall, I find Burp is a terrific cosy Gastropub located in the heartland and best it's open till midnight. There are little fine tunings that can be made on the food item, but you can see the potential of this place. Good Food, Good Drinks, Reasonable Price, and friendly atmosphere are the ingredients of a successful place. So if you are around Bedok or east of Singapore, give Burp a try. Cheers!! Thank you very much for to OpenRice Singapore and Burp Kitchen & Bar team for the tasting invitation. Chubby Botak Koala paid for the food and drink consumed during the second visit. continue reading

Burp Kitchen and Bar, located next to Bedok Reservoir with seating for 30, serves up a wide variety of American grub. You would be happy to know that there is no GST and service charge at Burp! Serving not just the typical burgers and fries, Burp seeks to introduce a local twist to their food. Riding along the recent food trend, Burp has been experimenting in the salted egg space! During the tasting, we managed to try a few of them such as salted egg fries, salted egg wings and salted egg burger (WHAT?), along with various other dishes.Out of the many dishes that we tried, my favorite would be the Baja Fish Tacos and Crabby Patty Burger.Baja Fish Tacos (SGD12)The Baja Fish Tacos have a generous amount of fried fish, coleslaw, salsa fresca and spicy mayo served with corn chips at the side. That fried fish was the star of the dish — fried to a golden brown yet so juicy and tender on the inside. The thickness of the fish makes this even more enjoyable as you can definitely have plenty of fish in every bite. Even though this was the last dish of the night and I was somewhat full by then, I couldn’t resist more helpings of it! The zesty apple slaw and salsa was tangy and made great pairings with the fish tacos.Crabby Patty Burger (SGD18)This is no ordinary soft shell crab burger — it is a salted egg soft shell crab burger! The Crabby Patty Burger has a whole fried soft shell crab as the “patty” with salted egg sauce drizzled over it and sandwiched between two squid ink buns. How innovative! The buns had no distinct taste, but the combination was great for me. Fried food and salted egg sauce, what could go wrong? This would be the choice for you if you’re looking for an alternative to the usual beef patty burger. However, it comes at the price tag of $18 which I find to be on the expensive side.Under the “Bar Grub” menu, we tried the Salted Egg Tofu Fries, Salted Egg Wings, Burp Kitchen Wings and Chicken Quesadilla.Salted Egg Tofu Fries (SGD8)Tofu fries? That’s a first for me! Tofu cubes are being cut into strips before being fried to a golden brown. Don’t they look like spam fries? Except that this is not processed meat but a much healthier choice! Salted egg sauce was then drizzled onto them. I found the skin to be a little tough and tasted more like tau kwa than tofu to me. Perhaps I was expecting a more silky inner layer when I think of tofu, but this was on the dry side. There was also insufficient salted egg sauce but thankfully the owners kindly offered more of their wasabi mayo which I really liked too. Their sauces are all home made, and I found the salted egg sauce just right with some bits in it. But personally, I thought there could be more chilli padi as I love it spicy!Burp Kitchen Wings (SGD10)Salted Egg Wings (SGD14)The chicken wings here are air-fried, making it a healthier for the health conscious! The Burp Kitchen Wings are coated with the Adobo sauce — a savoury sauce with sour tones. As for the Salted Egg Wings, they are coated with the same sauce used on the tofu fries. These would definitely make a great bar bite with some beer. For draught beer lovers, Burp serves Asahi Super Dry and Kronenbourg Blanc on tap.Chicken Quesadilla (SGD9)The Chicken Quesadilla came with a tortilla wrapping the slow cooked pulled chicken and melted cheddar and mozzarella cheese. This was a little plain tasting as compared to the other dishes, though the melted cheese was really satisfying!Other than the above, we also tried the Burp’s Beef under “Burgers” and Pork Carnitas under “Tacos”.Burp’s Beef (SGD16)The Burp’s Beef is made of two brioche bun sandwiching the beef patty, american cheese, caramelized onions, pea sprouts and spicy mayo. The folks of Burp have creatively replaced the usual lettuce with pea sprouts, or what we know as dou miao. The taste of the vegetables is definitely stronger here with a more chewy bite. However, I still prefer my crunchy lettuce! The buns were not as fluffy and the patty was not as juicy as I’d like them to be, resulting it to be rather dry overall.Pork Carnitas (SGD12)The Pork Carnitas is a dish of soft tacos wrapping slow cooked BBQ pulled pork, coleslaw and salsa fresca. The pulled pork is beautifully seasoned with sweet tasting notes as the juices flow with each bite. The strong flavors in this will definitely appeal to those who likes stronger tasting dishes.It might not be as accessible for those who don’t drive as a short bus ride is needed from Bedok MRT station, but located right beside Bedok Reservoir Park means that you can take a slow walk and enjoy the surroundings after your meal! I would definitely recommend you this place for you to grab a drink and some (baja fish) tacos!Find more reviews at http://feleats.blogspot.sg/ continue reading
