Without a doubt, Millenia Walk’s Plentyfull has reason to draw on- and off-peak crowds. High ceilings, organic colours, lots of greenery and sunlight make this place the respite it aspires to be within the mall.
While Parable’s interior ingenuity has made its point, grub is most of, if not the entire point of interest. Plentyfull brands itself as an all-natural, honest-to-goodness kitchen, with every dish and condiment made from scratch.
The grocer’s corner stocks all kinds of snacks for grabbing on the go, and ingredients for patrons to whip up meals that are just as wholesome in the comfort of their homes.
What I find audacious is the many sections rolled together in one cohesive space – a grocer, hot deli, pastry counter, bar and table service into the night. I got to try two dishes from the brunch menu over the weekend; hardly a gauge of overall dexterity, but I would definitely pay another visit to cover the rest of their adventurous menu. Alongside their take on a cocktail classic, perhaps.
Plentyfull’s Brunch Plate ($24) is the full works – duck sausage patty, organic scrambled eggs, crispy house-smoked bacon, plum tomatoes, stacked potatoes and toast. The taste of duck sausage was as intriguing as the idea of it, so this stood out alongside beautifully brined plum tomatoes and stacked potatoes. I mean, look at that texture. It was like lasagna of potato!
Not gonna lie, this makes quite a carbo-laden plate, so move on along if you’re prone to food coma.
Here’s an equally luxurious vegetarian option. The Fried Organic Eggs & Kin Yan Mushrooms on Sourdough Toast (S$16) is a masterpiece of taut, earthy mushrooms complemented by burnt scallion yogurt, pecorino cheese & cress. Sour, savoury, and not to mention gooey from the buttery yolk, this is the kind of thing you can’t stop eating even when stuffed.
Generous portions balanced with clean flavours make this a departure from regular greasy or processed brunch foods. At the same time, unexpected creations come from seasonal ingredients, so the menu can be fluid and subject to palate.
If you’re a picky eater, you can utilise the market table luncheon spread which I hear is delectable. Choose one protein and two sides for $17+, or three sides for $19+.
Coupled with a seating format that can be both communal and closed off (booths are the cosiest), there’s more than enough space for you, me and the weekend crowd!
Next on our to-try list: Pumpkin Gnocchi, (their take on) Indonesian Chicken Porridge and Buckwheat Crepes.
