It was a Thursday, you know, that day of the week where it’s almost the weekend, and you wish it already is, but it’s actually not. And yet I found a slow Sunday afternoon at Mister Sunday, a café created by Yusuf Yap and Fergie Sutanto, founders of the graphic design studio BrownFox. Here’s the story.
Concrete walls and warm lights gleaming through its windows, it’s hard not to be drawn to Mister Sunday on a rainy Thursday afternoon, a café located on the second floor of the BrownFox studio. Stepped in, Maroon 5 greeted me with “She Will Be Loved”, and my friend and I were guided to a table at the corner of the room surrounded by glass windows.
There was also a collie, blissfully sleeping next to his owner who is busy working with her laptop. I agree with him. With a place this comfortable, it is hard to stay awake. And if you’re wondering, yes Mister Sunday is pet friendly.
Most of the dishes are of Asian-Western fusion such as the pork belly brioche with sambal matah or Thai chicken bites with bacon. To accompany our slow afternoon, we chose their signature brownies with ice cream (yes! ice cream on a rainy day) and their recommended salted egg fish & chips. Unfortunately, the recommended dish is not up to its expectations as it was lacking the salted egg flavor other than the crunchiness it offers, but brownies to the rescue! Known for selling homemade brownies before they opened a restaurant, Mister Sunday knows their expertise, which is making perfectly rich and moist chocolate brownies. The additional vanilla ice cream made the dish even more perfect, melting with the brownies at each bite.
Hours passed and the raindrops trickles. The Collie beside us looks like it didn’t want to leave, still resting soundly while occasionally nudging its owner. We agree with him. Now I want a pet dog…Not long after, a reminder popped up in my phone, snapping us back into reality.
There goes a short Sunday afternoon during the midweek. It was amazing how Mister Sunday could teleport you into another time where you can slow down with your pet or a friend. Although they didn’t have separated smoking and non-smoking rooms, I would still comeback just to take a break. Rest assured, you can have Sunday anyday at Mister Sunday.
