A pizza from Marché

Yeah, this was the other restaurant concept of Marché at JEM (50 Jurong Gateway Road, #01-03, JEM, tel : +65 6694 2501) where you do not get issued cards and there are no individual stalls for your food order. This one works like a regular restaurant that is serving pretty much similar stuff from the regular one that we're used to. So here's a pizza from them, with goat's cheese, walnuts and grapes. Sounded good on the menu.

I had thought that they would slice up the grapes and perhaps toast them with the pizza halfway through to help release the sugars which would have been great - rather than just scattering them whole on top of the pie. Those were pretty nice grapes though. The goat's cheese was creamy but the pungence was a little tame. And those walnuts, they were just shy of being rancid. It's rather appalling at how careless restaurants can be with the quality of their nuts. And for what they were charging inclusive of service, it's almost criminal.

I didn't dislike this so much, I just wanted to rant about how it could have been a lot better if they didn't treat this like an afterthought.
