SPRMRKT is fast becoming my go-to place for lunch. Having dined there thrice, I haven't been able to find any fault with any of their dishes.They consistently serve up good honest grub that's substantial and hearty, and it's a great place to hang out, post lunch, over a hot latte to de-compress before heading back to daily grind of work. FYI, this was Wednesday's menu.

The Warm Ratatouille Salad ($10) with grilled zucchini, eggplant, fresh mixed greens, seasoned with a tomato-centric ratatouille paste and balsamic dressing, is a deconstructed version of the classic French stew. And healthier as well. Great juxtaposition of warm and cold flavours.

The Pure Pumpkin Soup ($7) with pureed pumpkins, pumpkin seed and garlic croutons is a wonderfully kitschy reference to Halloween. Smooth and sweet, this was comfort in a bowl. A flavoursome crusty Garlic Bread ($1 $3) helped mop up any remnants of the creamy soup.

The Oxtail Penne ($18), tossed with freshly shredded stewed oxtail meat and homemade tomato sauce was rich and robust. A drizzle of aromatic olive oil provided libation while parsley lent a crisp freshness.

The Grilled BBQ Pork Ribs ($17) with paprika-seasoned shoestring fries, and a tangy balsamic mesclun salad was awesome. Generous portions, with fall-off-the-bone ribs that were thoroughly infused with the smoky sweetness of BBQ sauce, this made for a substantial and hearty meal. For the Professor who said that $10 isn't worth rabbit food in my last post about SPRMRKT, these tender and succulent ribs got both CC and Mr J's approval!

I love the concept, the look, but when it first started, I had a bad cup of mocha and was shocked that $10 got me a small cup of weird tasting beef broth. It kind of turned me off trying again (besides the fact that their bread pudding is to-die-for). So maybe I'll try this next time, since you've got so many good things to say :)
