Like its name, Simplicity Cafe runs on a simple, home-styled Western-Fusion menu. What differs from the usual cafe fare is its signature Black Rice series... which the proprietor is happy and excited to share with you on the health benefits. It's easy to miss Simplicity Cafe... it can be found at Sandilands Shoplot, adjacent to the Cecil Street Market. There are a few shoplots right in front of the condominium but this cafe is the only food eatery there. The interior has a bold wooden element, from the furniture to decor, portraying an industrial chic design. The fact that the place dishes out generous food serving with affordable prices, it is worth a look.

We had Black Rice Chicken with Soup and Vege, one of the signature Black Rice dishes; the Rice was nicely cooked with a firm, bouncy texture. The Chicken was lightly seasoned but could be more tender. The accompanying Coleslaw and Borscht Soup were delicious though. The Western dish- Grilled Salmon with Apple Sauce and Mashed Potato did not disappoint. The Fish was carefully cooked and served over Mashed. Unlike the creamy-rich and silky smooth version, Simplicity Cafe's rendition carried bits of the Potatoes with a mild herbaceous fragrance. Not too shabby for the price that we were paying for.
