Burp Kitchen & Bar is located at one of the livelier HDB clusters along Bedok Reservoir View where Refuel and ARTEA are. It exudes comforting and friendly vibes, kinda reminding me of Refuel which is located a few minutes away. But the menu, inspired by Asian and Tex-Mex cuisine, is vastly different.

Asian and Tex-Mex fusion dishes

For Asian fusion, we have the likes of Garlic Soy Tofu Burger ($12) and Chicken Rendang Burger ($13). On the other hand, we’ve got Tacos.

The food at Burp Kitchen & Bar is generally inexpensive, at an average of $13 per plate.

We got the Burp’s Beef ($14) which is a classic cheeseburger and the Beefy Three Cheese ($16), the cheesier counterpart.

The beef patty for both burgers were equally excessively salty, completely inviolate of its natural beefy, meaty flavours. While the melted cheese would’ve been a heavenly indulgence, it only made the burger saltier.

Meanwhile, the Grilled Unagi Aglio Olio, the most expensive item on the menu at $16, was also rather disappointing. Before I criticize, I should credit them for the plump and properly grilled unagi. But that’s where the compliments end.

Just to clarify I wasn’t the one who ordered this because I found the combination rather odd. Garlic-infused olive oil was just too delicate a sauce to share the same plate with something as umami and robust as the unagi sauce. But it didn’t matter in the end. The pasta was dry and barely fragrant.

The only thing worth on Burp’s menu worth mentioning is the Korean Beef Taco ($14). Tender, lightly-marinated beef with dollops of gochujang aioli. It’s simple, yet comforting.

Verdict

The food here is decent at best. It really has more of a ‘I just wanna cook a meal at home’ vibes.
