Marché, VivoCity

It's been quite some time since I've walked into Marché. I had actually thought that they had departed the local food scene with Vila'ge being more visible in town but apparently, they still are around in Vivocity (VivoCity, 1 Harbourfront Walk, #03-14). Things apparently have changed a little on the menu. The old favorites like the rosti and the savory crepes are apparently still around. The food doesn't seem to be as tasty as I remember them to be except for the greasy rosti with their greasy sausages. The banana crepe had rubbery skin thicker than prata and for something that comes from a hot pan, the bananas actually arrived cold. Wtf?! The pasta drenched in some weak cream sauce is apparently not to my liking if you can realise from the picture that it's smothered in cheese flakes and chilli powder.

The pleasant surprise is that Marché actually has König Ludwig at rather inexpensive pint which I found was a rather good substitute for Hoegaarden during the shortage period some months back where everywhere was serving them with extra thick foam with some other places charging more while at that. But that's for another day.

Well, I don't really think much of their food apart from certain favorites of mine there from the past, like the savory crepes and the rosti. I haven't actually tried their grilled meats before so I cannot really comment on them. Apart from those, I haven't really eaten that much from Marche. Have never been to vila'ge and probably will never go on my own accord.

They used to be a nice idea, but didn't quite evolve with the times for me.

sori can ask whether marche only serve steak?

There is also turkey (might be seasonal for that), lamb chops and pork knuckles in the grill section.
