Tiong Bahru is no stranger to cafes. An abundance of them already sitting pretty along the streets of the neighborhood district, attracting crowds on the daily. But a recent new opening that you certainly should take notice of is French cafe-restaurant Merci Marcel. Opening its doors next to the unmissable Tiong Bahru Bakery, this dining hybrid concept serves up delicious brunches in the day and doubles up as a tapas bar once the sun sets.
The inviting interior is only a teaser for the gastronomical experience here. Their vast menu options include the eye-catching Black Pepper Tuna (S$25) and Ceviche of Red Snapper (S$22) for heavy appetites. If you’re feeling for something lighter and would rather share with a group, then opt for the Tarte Flambee (S$24), a pizza-like dish topped with cured bacon, apples and rocket leaves; or the Merci Marcel’s Pork Tenderloin (S$24), a French-styled meat dish with a dash of local influence. Kids with a sweet tooth will particularly enjoy the dessert choice of Creme Brûlée with Passionfruit (S$9), with the vanilla custard perfectly complementing the restaurant’s savory dishes. For a slice of Parisian vibes and delicacies, Merci Marcel is where to be.
The dishes served here are suitable for sharing, which makes it a great location to book for big groups and gatherings.
Just about anyone, from brunch mates to families looking for casual but authentic French fare.
The restaurant houses three main spaces – namely the Lounge, Café Chic and Garden Patio. Take your pick depending on the time of day and occasion of visit.
