Burpple releases its inaugural “Burpple Hot 100” in conjunction with upgrading Burpple as a new and improved way people discover local flavour in Singapore
Monday, 23 June 2014 - Today, Burpple is releasing it’s first ever “Burpple Hot 100™” showcasing Singapore’s top hot spots over the past month. Burpple, powered by the tastes of real locals, is Singapore’s popular mobile and online discovery guide for everyone who likes to eat and drink. Along with the Burpple Hot 100, Burpple is also announcing the launch of the new Burpple, with new features that make it easier and more fun than ever to discover local flavour.
The Burpple Hot 100
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.
