Strawberry Mulberry-Noir Tea ($7.10) (4.5/5) frm heytea taste like sourberries such as raspberries and strawberries and jasmine green tea combination. I really enjoy atas tea aftertaste but I got hard time to pop in straw into the drink. I let the cover drop on the floor and almost let drink spilled on others lol :") I didn't like the cover didn't secured well on the cup and got hard time to close properly.

Cold Brew Green Osmanthus (Bottle - $3.10) (3.5/5) frm heytea was really asethetic bottle tbh as my sister she really thirsty after cycling (halfway) and walking from changi airport to MBS. We were waiting for our turn to order heytea and a lot of people queued up for this. The taste for tea was slightly faint and not that strong after putting the fridge for a long time.

We are back at Cherki as we were pleased to find that the restaurant extended it's stay on Burpple Beyond, plus we really like their fusion peranakan cuisine. Today, we decided to try the braised pongteh lamb shank, which comes with a huge lamb shank served alongside a small serving of blue pea flower rice and achar. The lamb shank was braised for quite a long duration in a fermented bean paste and the meat was definitely no longer gamey, and the sauce covering the lamb shank had a slight nutty taste to it. However, we felt that the lamb meat could have been more tender, as parts of it were quite tough.

The rice was pretty fragrant although as in our previous reviews, we felt that the serving size could be larger to make for a more filling meal. The dish costs $24++ although you should use your Burpple Beyond vouchers if you have them to enjoy a discount. 😋

Cherki was packed to the brim on a Friday night and if you are ever thinking of visiting on a Friday nightz you need to make a reservation in advance!

Was at Cherki on a Friday night for dinner and the place was really packed. Thankfully, we already made reservations on Chope.

As we previously tried the lobster linguine and really liked it, both of us ordered the same dish again. The linguine was cooked to an al dente texture, and the laksa flavors were infused nicely as the gravy (which wasn’t too watery) coated each strand of pasta. The addition of tau pok pieces that soaked up the rich coconut-based sauce made this dish reminiscent of the hearty traditional laksa we’re familiar with.

Other than the half lobster that was served in the shell on the side, lobster pieces were also hidden in the linguine. The lobster was on the smaller side, understandably so because of the price. I found mine to be a bit fishy that day but the partner found his to be fine.

We also shared a side dish - chicken satay in peanut sauce encased in pappadom shells. While the name suggests that the chicken pieces are wrapped in regular tortilla found in Mexican dishes, the use of crispy crackers we enjoy in our Nasi Briyani was rather ingenious. The chicken pieces were coated in a slightly sweet peanut-based sauce, which was a bit sweet for my liking but would remind you of the traditional satay sauce. While novel, the price is a bit on the high side for the portion given. However, it can be something interesting to try in a group, where one can experience Indian and peranakan flavors all in one dish.

Such a Dinner is welcomed when you think of chalking 12K steps. First, the cold Shack Shack pale ale is thirst quenching, the dark meet chicken sambal burger has a satisfying crunch n punch, the shack smoked burger is tender n fragrant with bacon strips and the sambal fries… unbeatable!

Visited Cherki on a weekday evening and it was quite crowded so it’s advisable to make a reservation before heading down. In this dish, the rice was fried with foie gras fat and shredded duck, which gave each mouthful a delightful fragrance. One can also taste the wok hei in every bite. The piece of foie gras served above the fried rice was also nicely executed, with a rich mouthfeel that somehow complimented well with the Asian flavors of this dish. The chili on the side was also delicious, offering a decent level of spice. While the serving of dish may be on the small side for bigger eaters, it is highly recommended for a taste of Peranakan flavors with a modern twist that is not easily found elsewhere. Overall, the standard at Cherki is pretty high despite its steeper than average prices but being able to use your Burpple vouchers would surely help!

Burpple 3 course meal. Comes with a side (mentaiko scallop), main (waygu beef bowl) and drink (asahi). It was mind blowing delicious! And portion size was perfect.

Beef was juicy and slightly chewy but i would prefer the chirashi don. Chirashi don's ingredients all complement with each other very well. However, nothing too special about it. Slightly overpriced overall

*lobster and chirozo was unavailable and substituted with fresh oysters*

Finally tried one of the more $$$ deals as a teen in singapore. The place should consider giving a bread basket of some sort as all their bread items were out of this world 😮‍💨. Overall, the food and ambience were great, presentations wonderful, tho it felt more like a 4-course meal as the portion sizes for the first 2 dishes were way too small like 1 cheese bread and 1 oyster only per person cant satisfy me :((

Cheese bread 5⭐️: Totally can understand the hype. So good and addictive. Confirm a calorie bomb given the strong cheese taste and the amount of butter I spread per bite

Oysters 4⭐️: Really fresh but nothing special

Beef Tartare 3.5⭐️: The bread was really nice. Wished more bread was given as the beef got a little jelat over time eating it alone.

Scallops 4⭐️: Fresh and well seared. The taste of the butter sauce could be stronger.

Wagyu Beef Petite 3⭐️: A little tough; the sauce and the mushrooms had little taste. Could not detect the truffle at all but the addition of brioche bits was interesting and nice.

Hamachi 4⭐️: Simple and light asian-influenced dish. Fish was well cooked and had a nice texture but clams felt a little out of place.

Apple Mille Feuille 5⭐️: My favourite dish❤️❤️ Super crispy pastry and interesting smoked calvados ice cream flavour with a slightly complementary salty taste to balance the apple filling which had the right amount of sweetness.

The servers were really friendly and attentive and a mini cake was prepared for my friend's bday. Although sometimes I felt a little pressured to spend more: the usual still/sparkling water question and we were asked quite a few times if we wanted any additional appetizers, drinks and desserts.

Managed to stick to only $148++. Worth it treat once in a while :D

The house signature dish at this gastropub, befitting its British English and Indian roots.
.
Characterized by ample use of spices, including garlic paste, ginger paste, powdered turmeric, salt, ghee / clarified butter, coconut cream, and sliced chili, all in a thick rich tomato-based curry.
.
The boneless chicken chunks are marinated in yoghurt, then grilled, immersed in the curry, and served. Has a tender moist texture, and picks up the lovely meaty vegetal sweet savoury spice flavours of the curry.
.
With their attention to detail in each dish, it's clear why they've attained a Michelin Bib Gourmand award.

Norwegian salmon is lightly marinated with shoyu tsuke, then intermingled with coral lettuce, mizuna leaves, cherry tomatoes, crispy tempura shimeji mushrooms and tempura crumbs, tied together with a hot pepper seaweed sauce. I really enjoyed this! 😋
