Been a few years since we patronized Marche and glad to say that the popular rosti is still the standard we remember.

Perfectly fried to have crispy top and bottom, and fluffy soft potato strips. Paired with luscious sour cream and spring onion (latter is available at the self-serve counter). The smoked salmon is a pricey top up but generous portion of 4 big slices. Chewy and tender, and well-marinated with fragrant dill that added an enjoyable herbaceous finish to the potato.

We also added on a perfectly fried egg ($1.90) with an oozy center yolk and lightly crisp white edges for a more complete and creamy meal.

Whole range of uniquely flavoured gourmet hotdogs available. The buns are soft and fluffy, and the sausage while pretty standard, was elevated by their pairing of ingredients for satisfying and balanced bites.

Fiery chic bolognese ($8.50) - Tangy tomatoes with fiery undertones from jalapeños, balanced by creaminess from the mayo and cheese for a hearty savory mix.

Heavenly Yuzu crab ($9.50) - The Yuzu wasn’t the most obvious but provided a refreshing citrus undertone that brightened the richer sausage, and the juicy pops of pomegranate sealed the deal. Paired with succulent crab, lettuce, and pickled cabbage. A flavour profile I’d return for.

For bigger eaters/ protein lovers, check out their jumbo hotdog (+$2) that escapes the bun. We added on a combo for +$3.50 to get a choice of side and regular iced drink. The nachos were quite standard but glad to say they stayed crisp even with the melted cheese, and liked that the carby potato salad wasn’t too creamy. Their iced drinks were generously sized and rich in flavour, and we appreciated the bits of barley and lemon within our honey barley and honey lemon.

Originating from Chiba, Japan, these freshly baked banana cakes are healthy-tasting without compromising on taste. More on the dense rather than fluffy side, with distinct banana fragrance. The cake is free of preservative, and is less sweet and oily.

In my last visit here right before the chicken export ban, we only managed to try their basic nasi lemak without ingredients and left with great impression of their fragrant rice and sweet-spicy chili. Glad to see chicken back on the menu and that queues have shortened (20-30 min wait on the weekend).

The chicken was undoubtedly the star of the show although the sambal was a close contender. Chicken was well-marinated with spices and fried to have crispy skin and crunchy bits while retaining a juicy fragrant interior. Choose between the fried chicken leg ($9.20) or boneless thigh ($4.20).

The half boiled egg, peanuts, ikan billis, and cucumber were standard, and the rice could be fluffier. But the chicken is one I’d return for.

Great elevation of classic duck rice with the introduction of succulent duck confit and creamy onsen egg. The rice was a delight with the flavourful soaking up of the herbal broth.

Honestly had higher expectations for this dish that propelled her home business to stardom. While I liked that it was lighter on the palette (not too rich in coconut), and decently flavoured with various spices, the overall profile was unmemorable (especially when compared to the other dishes).

Flavourful dry mee siam (from $6.90) with mild spiciness, and extra fiery kick from the accompanying sambal. Enjoyed the juicy and generously sized meatballs and fish cake. These ready-to-eat meals are ultra convenient (simply microwave/boil), and can be kept frozen for up to a month.

As a fan of minions, these were too adorable to resist! Ji Xiang is among our favourite ang ku kueh shop and happy to say that beyond the endearing design, they delivered in consistency and taste. The skin was thin, smooth, and chewy. Generously filled with the special flavour incorporating banana (minions’ favourite fruit) with sweet mung bean. The two came together splendidly with the distinct banana aroma and actual banana bits reminding us of a yummy goreng pisang.

Do note that these are for a limited time only and they change the minion designs weekly! Slightly sad that their clothes aren’t the standard blue outfit, but still so cute!

One of the more popular JB restaurants with a perpetual queue specializing in fish curry. Served piping hot in a claypot, the curry was complex with its mix of spices and rich seafood flavours. A good level of spice that was addictive without being too numbing or rich.

Served with crispy taupok that soaks up the curry, and various vegetables - cabbage, lady finger, long beans, and tomato. The sea bass head had dismal amount of meat, but what we could scrap off was fresh and tender, enhanced and not overpowered by the aromatic curry (just wished there was more!).

Have the curry with a bowl of rice and it’s so satisfying. Worth sweating it out in the non-air conditioned section of the restaurant (p.s lucky ones might get seated in the newer air-conditioned section).

For those who don’t want to make the journey/ queue in line, frozen curry packs of this famous gravy is being sold in Singapore 😂 .

𝐁𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐨 𝐜𝐨𝐝 𝐡𝐨𝐫 𝐟𝐮𝐧 ($23) - Perfectly baked creamy and tender miso atlantic cod and crispy fish maw with wok hei hor fun. Served in a light black cod broth.
