That kinda comfort carbs that one wakes up to!

Cheese was thiccc, macaroni was cooked to al-dente (glad that it wasn’t too hard!). My pet peeve for mac n’ cheese is dry, cold, plasticky macaroni, especially for such rendition where it wasn’t baked with cheese but drizzled and mixed with cheesy cheese sauce. The ‘exposed’ macaroni non-drizzled with cheese is likely to taste dry and plasticky but it’s nothing like this here! There was a v generous spread of cheese and cheese powder toppings to round that perfect bite!

No wonder every table had a serving of this!

I was incredibly excited to finally be back at Marché for their crepe but my oh my, budget me went for the lunch special (mushroom spinach crepe) @$10.90 + Black Forest ham (+$5.90) cos it worked out to be $15.90++, still cheaper than the black forest ham crepe priced at $17.90 ++, without the free drink.

It was pretty disappointing as the shrooms were peppered with loads of black pepper (EEEW) which masked any fragrance or aroma from the eggy crepe folds, the cheese, and the blackforest ham too. The muchrooms were a tad too salty too. All in all was a disappointing meal. Not worth the sodium!

Galettes No.4, priced at $17++
Side salad priced at $3++

Not the cheapest around and is it tasty? Yes.
Is it the best? Perhaps yes, in terms of ingredients
Is it worth the price? Perhaps yes if you consider the ambience but definitely no if it’s solely on the food.

Touted as one of the best sellers, I do agree it’s possibly one of the most ig-able, ingredient-filled galette on the menu. However, it’s a tad too salty. Saltiness from the ham, the cheese, and mushrooms (what a pity!)

Nothing screams brunch like Benedicts! We got a set of each Benedict - Brooklyn and Rodyk. Sounds like a pair of brothers 😂 Rodyk comes with stewed beef - great for those who wants a stronger element of animal protein with their sunnies. Brooklyn comes with smoked salmon, in the good ol’ traditional way. A pity there wasn’t an option with prosciutto! Also, a special shout out to their mocha chai! Love the hint of chai that comes along with each sip!

That kinda sinfully sweet mornings that you’d wanna wake up to

Yes you got that right, oxtail! A twist in the typical ham / smoked salmon. Great for those who’re looking for a different benny

Good value for the price but do not expect anything like those of Wild Honey's. Instead of amazing chorizos, Bread Yard's version uses sausage-shaped minced beef ('Kofta') - grilled and served whole. In terms of flavour, nothing particularly that screams but in terms of execution, definitely done well - not overcooked (phew). As for the shakshuka, the spicy sauce was a tad too tomato-ish and sourish in my opinion. However, the addition of Basil Pesto saved the day! Love the added dimension of minty-taste to the otherwise overly-sourish dish. Bread wise - not sure if toasted sourdough slices were the best complements. I'd have preferred a thicccc brioche that does a great job in soaking up the 'sauce'. Nevertheless, without the comparisons against Wild Honey, this was a rather decent dish at a decent price point. If you've the budget, Wild Honey's still the place to go for a more authentic Shakshuka experience!

Many twists to the good ol' traditional eggs benny here! For one, it's pulled pork instead of ham. Pulled pork was well-pulled, fork-tender and well-marinated. The flavour was intense! The second twist would be the sides - instead of typical salad with garden greens, it's a mix of arugula (wow, bitter!), mixed corns, pinto beans and diced tomato mixed in salsa sauce. The tangy mix was a nice balance to the bitter arugula. For those who prefer additional spice, a dish of peri-peri is provided on the side as well. I particular love how the hokkaido toast was toasted with the pulled pork in the oven before the beautiful eggys were placed on it. There's crunch on the edges of the toast and the beautiful charred strands of pulled pork tasted slightly different from the ones found elsewhere on the bread!! Who wouldn’t wake up to this?

This was named “Eggs Benedict with pulled pork” on the menu. But I think it should just be renamed as how I’ve titled this review. There’s no hollandaise to go with the ‘eggs benny’ and also, who pairs eggs benny with pulled pork?! (Ok yes there’s the option for smoked salmon but I just wanted pulled pork and so this was what I got) My colleague had the smoked salmon version but there was no hollandaise too! Whatever the name is, the runny yolk and pulled pork combi on pretty fluffy toast + some furikake and sesame seeds were pretty awesome to start your day with. Tho with pulled pork, it’d probably work better with a sunny side up 🍳 ‘Also comes with some avocado 🥑 mash across the toast for some healthy fats!

Tis' the perfect brunch! Scrambled in golden hues of sunshine, fluffy like a blanket - this looks like the kinda bed (or rather dish) that you would want to sink yourself in - and don't want to get out from - every morning. I had bacon chop (the other option was smoked salmon) to go along cos ... nothing like a piggy comfortably settled in a warm, fluffy blanket. A pity I couldnt quite capture the bacon chop comfortably wrapped in the eggy blanket - it was amazing! Unlike most breakfasty joints that serve bacon strips that tend to be overly oily, or overly salty and dry, the bacon chop was pretty thiccc! Approx x5 the thiccccness of the typical thinly-sliced bacon served alongside big breakfast. All these goodness, enclosed within a buttery, lightly toasted croissant. Beware tho - there's pretty high chance of being sent back to bed (thanks to food coma) with this brekky!
PS: +4 for fries, or +6 for truffle fries. Both fries come in the fashion of macdonald's prosperity fries. I'd say, give it a miss if you aren't too hungry. Nothing extraordinarily good (unlike the 🥐 ,🥚, 🥓 chop combi) to shout about.
