Good food, average service

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.

One of the better cafes!

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.

Probably The Best Cafe for 2014!!

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!!

Interesting breakfast items

Absolutely loving the cafes popping up in my hood and the latest addition is Sunday Market at Lim Tua Tow Road. This cool spot serves up an Asian-inspired fare of Sirloin Rendang Toast ($15.90), Roasted Duck Pancakes with garlic hoisin sauce ($12.90) which gives diners something other than the usual Eggs Benedict for brunch.  We had to get ourselves the famous Bangkok Toast ($10.90) which was a cinnamon thick sweet brioche toast with Matcha Green Tea custard, served with Thai milk tea ice-cream. This is the first time i've had Bangkok Toast and i had absolutely no idea what to expect.  Well, it looked pretty much like a regular french toast. That is until you cut it through and bite into it!  The fluffy brioche was soaked in a sweet milky liquid (probably condensed milk) which would satisfy any sweet tooth. I love every component of this dish, be it the intense matcha custard or the candied exterior of the toast. It also comes served with a Thai Milk Tea ice cream. Sadly, that was a little more icy than milky. Anyway, LOVE LOVE LOVE this one.  Another stellar dish was the Pulled Duck Sandwich ($13.90) which is a shredded duck confit paired with creamy slaw, orange brown sauce and crispy duck skin. The serving was d*** big and we were stuffed by the end of it.  Even though the toast looked really heavy and huge, it was actually very airy and i found the meat to bread ratio to be perfect. This brioche is more buttery and savory compared to the Bangkok Toast and the meat was juicy and very savory. Another must try at Sunday Market.    Other savory dishes that i tried included the Smoked Salmon and Avocado waffles. Interesting cheese ice cream but the waffles are kind of flat. The Duck Confit was yums as per the sandwich and the Teriyaki Chicken wasn't too bad as well. 

Sunday Market also does other homemade ice-cream with Asian inspired flavours such as Honey & Fig, Yubari Melon Gelato, Yuzu Sorbet, Kyoho grape, all at $3.50 per scoop. You could do it with waffles too ($6). Adequate coffee, nothing fantastic. Give their milk tea a shot instead. But whatever you do, make sure you at least get yourself a Bangkok Toast!

only for creative food experience

Decided to head to Sunday Market for dinner since it’s just walking distance from my house! Pretty crowded on a Sunday evening. Waited for quite a while before we got seated. Cafe filled with quirky furniture and has that market feel due to the decorations. It has a bar top filled with baskets of things from glass bottle to free apples! But surprisingly, not many take the free apples!

The menu has quite a decent variety of food choices. Food is pretty unique and creative. Kind of fusion style with asian flavors as the main character and infused it into the various dishes. But all prices are subjected to 10% service charge and prevailing GST.

Cafe Mocha ($5) and Skinny Wings & Truffle Fries ($6.90) served with Aioli and Thai chilli sauce. Lack of truffle taste for the truffle fries, but skinny wings is not too bad. Crispy and well marinated with herbs.

Seafood Aglio Olio ($14.90): Mixed seafood spaghetti tossed with chilli oil and topped with fish flakes. Pasta is al dente with crunchy prawns. A lil towards the spicy end. The fish flakes are like the shredded cuttlefish tidbits that we munch on while watching tv but undergone deep frying! Didnt add much flavour to the pasta i guess, probably just there for creativity or unique form of garnishing.

Crispy Duck Leg Confit ($17.90): Served with baby potatoes, salad and drizzled with orange brown sauce. Crispy outer skin but a lil tough on the meat. Meat not as soft or melt in your mouth kind, unlike Saveur. ):

Smoked Salmon & Avocado ($14.90): Not the usual sweet dessert waffle but the savory style. Topped with salmon, avocado and cream cheese ice cream. Pretty much like the cream cheese ice cream, kind of creamy smooth and has a salty note. Exterior of waffle is not crispy but interior is kind of fluffy and waffle itself is kind of plain. But paired with the savory items, it’s pretty alright. Not an astonishing dish but quite an interesting burst of flavors.

For some creative food experience but definitely not those mouth watering dishes that you will expect.
