I have been to Burpz Cafe twice. Once on a weekend afternoon (4pm) with a group of friends and a second time on a weekday evening (530pm) with my ex-colleague. However, my experience on my second trip was not too pleasant.

On both visits, the cafe was pretty packed although the cafe is not located within walking distance from the nearest MRT station. As I was sitting alfresco on my second visit, I was able to witness people arriving, only to leave as there were no empty tables. Yes, the cafe is this busy. The menu has also changed for August 14.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Luncheon meat fries, $6 – This is a new addition to the menu. With 2 choices for dip, we chose honey mustard over dijon mustard. This was pretty normal. Thankfully, not salty. However, my ex-colleague could not help but comment that it’s pretty expensive since we know the cost price of canned luncheon meat.

2) Egg benedict with proscuitto ham, $14 – This was ordered on my first visit. On the newly revised menu, one can choose their egg benedict to be served with prosciutto ham, smoked salmon or bacon, with either hollandaise sauce or avacado hollandaise sauce at a revised price of $15. The egg benedict was okie, although I felt the sauce was lacking. The presentation was a little messy too, since they piled the vegetables on top of the egg benedict instead of placing it at the side.

3) Seafood pasta, $14 – With choice of tomato, cream, aglio olio or rose sauce and either spaghetti or penne pasta, I went with tomato sauce and spaghetti. Mussels, prawns and squid were used. We thought it was a little too salty.

4) Burpz’s fish & chips, $13.90 – This is unfortunately not available in their revised menu, which is a pity cause this was impressive. The size was huge. Almost every table were ordering this dish too.

5) Rainie heart, $7 – Strawberry cake with slices of fresh, cold strawberries between the layers of sponge. I liked the cream, although the texture of the sponge cake was a little coarse.

6) Cafe Latte, $4

As mentioned earlier, my experience on my second trip was not too pleasant. We waited for an hour before our main (seafood pasta) was served. The food took longer than normal as the stove was down. However, we were not informed about the delay till 50 minutes into our wait. Burpz Cafe should definitely improve on their management of customer’s expectations / damage control. Of course, it did not help that we came when the sky was bright but our food was served after it got dark.

Other than that, Burpz Cafe is definitely a welcomed addition to Ang Mo Kio. They are probably targeting residents and students from neighbouring schools as they revamp their menu regularly for increased variety.

The cafe stated the opening hours as 10.30am. We reached at 10.40am and was told that the chef will only reach at 11am (shouldn't chef be here before the restaurant hours?) We decided to wait and when we were placing our orders, we were told we need to wait 40 mins for an egg Benedict (we had only 2 options for breakie) We decided to leave... It was quite a surprise to find a cafe in our neighborhood, but when such service standards, I doubt I will ever return. (And I am giving a star becos I have no choice)

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
