Fusion Food & Organised Chaos

Full Sunday Market (Cafe) review: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2015/02/sunday-market-cafe.html


Tucked away in a quiet corner off Upper Serangoon Road, Sunday Market (Cafe) appears non-descript from the outside, but don't be fooled. This hidden gem of a cafe offers adventurous fusion food, blending elements of Southeast Asia cuisine with classical American and British influences. Sunday Market (Cafe) is definitely unafraid of pushing boundaries!

Ambeince at Sunday Market (Cafe) is one of the highlights. Some have described the place as quirky, which seemingly doesn't encompass what it is... an organised chaos. Decor is urban street grunge, meets anti-establishment, meets elegant sophistication. Rough brick and unfinished cement walls stand opposed to clean white and red walls. Industrial metal and wooden furniture line the floor, while creeping plants fill the corners, and a bright red bicycle hangs over the dessert counter. Suddenly, there's an elegant gold chandelier and a giant bird sclupture too. Even the music is random, you could be listening to upbeat mandarin pop one minute, followed by a mellow jazz number the next.

Service at Sunday Market (Cafe) is pretty good. The young staff are upbeat and proactive, quick in seating you and taking orders, as well as being able to recommend items from the menu. I like that Sunday Market (Cafe) offers tableside service, they even help top up your water glass! They even come around to warn you if the parking attendant shows up, which I understand happens rather frequently in this area!

Food at Sunday Market (Cafe) is fusion, Singapore style. Each dish is creative, with many items here being handmade. However, taste can sometimes be hit and miss, and is rather subjective as their food is experimental. Portions are big enough for 1 person, and prices are at the upper end for a cafe, budget about SGD $29 per person for a meal at Sunday Market (Cafe).

The Beef Rendang Toast (SGD $15.90) is only available as a weekend brunch dish, and is well worth ordering. Chunks of tender beef striploin, marinated in a savoury, spiced rendang gravy, extremely tasty and flavourful! Served with crisp buttered brioche toast strips, which you dip into the incredibly fragrant and aromatic rendang gravy / curry before eating... Highly recommended!

The Bangkok Toast (SGD $10.90) is the house signature dessert. A thick slab of sweet brioche toast, filled with a sweet milky cream, dusted with cinnamon sugar and topped with strawberries, is the star on the plate, and good enough to eat on its own. Alongside is a smooth green tea custard garnished with blueberries, and I'm surprised it doesn't have that powdery texture usually associated with matcha desserts. The weakest element is the Thai milk tea ice cream, while the home made ice cream retains the flavour of an authentic Thai milk tea, it had more ice crystals instead of a smooth milky texture.

So far this is the first cafe that can impress me as i usually find cafe food very boring. But here, most of the food are quite interesting that i think it's not common to find at other cafes. If you're those adventurous type, come & try their special food items here! 

The food and dessert was quite good here. Service was average without any smile.. I think the staff were probably quite stressed to handle many early bird customers including me once they opened at 11am. Can you imagine the cafe was almost full within 30mins! The only disappointment is this cafe charged both 10% service charge and 7% GST as some small cafes they don't charge these.. Nevertheless, this will not stop me from visiting as long as they can create more special food!

The cafe has two seating areas, one "outside" another "inside". I would recommend sitting "outside". We were offered seats "outside" but the companion requested to move in.
 Either the seating location was in the direct blowing direction of the aircon vent or, I found myself seated, facing the entrance of the toilet. And yes, if any user comes out without closing the door behind him/her, I get a view of the toilet bowl. I don't even want to talk about the smells. (thankfully, I did not experience any foul smells in the visit)
 We were there early, about 6pm, the cafe was still pretty empty; there was only another table of 3 diners. We placed our order for a serving of Truffle Fries and Skinny Wings and a flat white.
 Meanwhile, we were served with 2 glasses of cold water.
 The not so good about seating inside, at such an early hour? It was difficult getting the attention of the staff. Adding to the point that they were hardly attentive to us. Our glasses of water never got re-filled till we asked. When it came to a third serving, I got up to self-serve.
 Service was a little slow for that crowd. It took almost 10 minutes for a Flat White to arrive.
 Good marks are given though, to the food. The fries are good! Nicely salted, with generous amounts of truffle oil.
 We had a waffle with 2 scoops of ice-cream. The waffle was not very crispy but still satisfactorily appetising. Pistachio-flavoured ice-cream in my opinion, was a little strange. Most certainly will recommend the sea salt caramel flavour.
 The cafe does get crowded when it gets a little later (after 7pm) so, be there early or probably make a reservation prior to arriving.
 Good for small groups of friends.

Sunday Market is one of those truly hipster cafe, with the warm, rustic feel to it. And just like most popular cafes these days, they do also have a bicycle mounted on the wall. I quite like the ambience of this place because of its brick walls and it really gives off really cosy vibes, even though it was full house with the bustling Sunday crowd. Yeah, these people, as cliche as us, visiting Sunday Market on a Sunday afternoon.

You can expect the usual brunch suspects here, with a twist. They’ve got your waffles, french toast, eggs benedict, all covered, but how often do you get Waffles with Fried Chicken, French toasts with bbq chicken, or a sirloin rendang toast? And of course, not forgetting their famous Bangkok Toast!

To rev up our engines for more food, we ordered the Skinny Wings with Truffle Fries. I mean, what’s there not to like about this dish right?

We ordered 2 mains. The boy had a Roasted Duck with Garlic Hosin Crispy Eggs. Wh..Wha.. What? Garlic Hosin Crispy Eggs? We’ve no idea as well, even after finishing the entire dish. Hahaha! We had the famous Bangkok Toast for dessert!

The food here was really good, and of course, pretty well plated. I enjoyed the ambience of the entire place, despite it being packed to the brim on a Sunday afternoon. The twist that they have created for their dishes worked, fortunately to their favor. However, one thing they could improve on, was possibly the service. We had to wait for a pretty long while for the toast to be served, despite reminding them twice. Our glasses were also not refilled even though they were left empty for quite awhile. Maybe it’s because of the overwhelming number of orders that have kept the servers busy, probably with time and experience, they would be able to deal with the crowd better.

First impression, from the outside, it is quite funky. The signboard is a combination of red and white is more like a Chinese restaurant instead of cafe. Once you are in, the décor is unique, minimalistic but making you feel like you are dining outdoor. The crowd just make it feels lively. Not sure why, but it seems to be in trend that lots of cafe like to hang oldies stuff such as bicycle, chair, TV, etc. from their ceiling.   So what are the must try items here: Crispy Duck Leg Confit ($17.90). Move over French Bistro, most newbies cafe in Singapore has mastered this dish. The same can be said here, nicely executed. The skin is crispy, the meat is tender, flavourful and not too salty. While duck confit supposed to be soak in duck fat during the marinating process, you don't feel the oiliness here. The potato is crisp, goes well with the brown sauce and salad.   Pulled Duck Sandwich ($13.90). Another well executed duck dish here, the use brioche bread packs more flavour to the dish. It was pan fried at first, so it is crispy, and you can feel the crunchiness of the duck in the sandwich as well. The creamy slaw and brown sauce bind the whole sandwich together. Good for light bite.   Bangkok Toast ($10.90). One of the best desserts here with awesome presentations. The brioche is flavoured with cinnamon (very light) and icing sugar. Green tea custard and Thai Milk tea ice cream are have a subtle hint of sweetness and very good to accompany the toast. Once the ice cream melts, it become a creamy milk shake.   Waffle with Ice Cream ($9.50 – double scoop). The waffle is thick and crispy. We tried Belgium Chocolate and Thai Milk Tea ice cream. Both are creamy and delicious, best of all it is not overly sweet. Yum Yum   For drinks, the caffeine is very average. Don't expect those artisan coffee, as it is not their focus here. (Hint to management, Can we get better coffee??). I personally like their Lemmy Lemonade ($5.90). This lemonade is just refreshingly tangy. Imported from New Zealand, this drink is organic (not that I really care) and it just tasted awesome. Thai Milk tea is also a favourite but it can be a bit sweet if you don’t have a sweet tooth.   Service is fast and friendly. After they took your order, they will provide you with the cutlery and the anticipation of getting your grub soon. From the way it looks, the utensils and cutleries are from Thailand.   Overall, Sunday Market is going to be our cafe of choice in 2014. The food is excellent and value for money. We really enjoy the comfortable atmosphere here and best of all you don't need to wait for long to get a seat. Since our first visit, Little Devil and I went back there three times in the past two months and we just can't get enough of the place and it is so near our place. Well, you definitely see us more often here. Cheers!!
