Locals know best: Singaporeans pick Burpple’s top eateries

When it comes to eating, everyone is an expert, according to Burpple. And why shouldn’t it think so? Singapore is known for its variety of cuisine and who knows food better than the locals themselves.

Now if you’re slightly out of the loop in terms of eatery guides and have no idea what Burpple is about, it’s basically Singapore’s mobile and online discovery guide for locals who like to eat and drink. Except, you'll be flooded with pictures after pictures of glorious, drool-worthy food. Think of it as Instagram for foodies.

And in an attempt at educating people about the trendiest local chomp stations on our little red dot, Burpple has released its inaugural “Burpple Hot 100” – a list that showcases Singapore’s top eating and drinking spots over the past month.

But the list wasn’t just randomly conceived by Burpple. Instead, it was powered by the tastes of local Burpple users, aka “burpplers”. Burpple used an objective set of data from recent reviews, lists created, views, and other relevant factors from more than 200,000 “burpplers” to put together this guide.

Singaporeans have chosen, and you can review the “Burpple Hot 100” here.

“With learnings and valuable data collected over the last two 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,” Burpple co-founder, Dixon Chan, said. 

Along with the “Burpple Hot 100”, it has also announced a revamped Burpple, which now includes curated guides written by food industry insiders, as well as lists crafted by Singaporeans who share their raves about where they have eaten. Its iOS and Android apps have also been updated to include these changes.
