If you are a Singaporean foodie, you would have heard about Burpple. Built in Singapore, Burpple is also known as the Instagram for food: users can download the app and easily use it to discover and share all food related content with the Burpple community.
As a new mobile app update, Burpple included a whole new feature: Burpple Hot 100, which showcases Singapore’s top hot spots over the past month. The Burpple Hot 100 is based on actual app and site activity data generated by over 200,000 locals in Singapore alone who use Burpple every month to discover and rediscover great places to eat and drink in the Red Dot.
“The “Burpple Hot 100” shows the hottest places in the city, a simple way to show off where the latest action is. Whether they are good, great or awesome, we leave it to your own tastebuds. Because, when it comes to eating, everyone’s an expert. We use an objective set of data including recent reviews, lists that have been created, views, and other relevant factors. Burpple users (we affectionately call them “burpplers”) are the ones who determine what’s hot by photographing what they eat, and writing all about it.” – Burpple
For the month of May, the top 2o of Burpple’s Hot 100 list is as follow:
- The Sushi Bar
- Comestivel Desserts

Other than the month top 100 list, Burpple now also features both curated guides written by food industry insiders as well as lists crafted by everyday Singaporeans who share their raves about where they have eaten. To date, there are already half a million lists created by tens of thousands of hungry and thirsty burpplers. Here are some fun examples:
Steve, an accountant by day and foodie by birth, shares his favorite street food found in Singapore.
Veronica, creative director, shares her favorite cafés found in Singapore and Hong Kong.
The Wedding Scoop, Singapore’s leading wedding portal has created a list on Burpple for hip and cool restaurants to celebrate your nuptials. Brands are using Burpple in creative and inspiring ways. Selected world class brands include Standard Chartered, Marina Bay Sands & Between.
“Our vision is that with Burpple, you can eat like a local in any city around the world. It’s exciting to see the strong adoption in Singapore. It’s an eventuality that people will switch from searching on traditional directories to being easily guided on Burpple. With learnings and valuable data collected over the last 2 years, we already have over half a million lists created in thousands of cities. Starting with Singapore, we aim to guide people to the best food through a smart and modern platform,” shared Dixon Chan, Co-founder of Burpple
