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.

Nice Special Food at Hidden Gem Cafe!

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!

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.
