PS. Café #2
28B Harding Road
6479 1588


For an after dinner dessert, Hui Yi, Wen Yi and I walked over to PS. Café since Qian Wen had to leave after dinner. Even though I’ve just been here the day before, I’m not complaining as I really like this place.


Not surprisingly, we had to wait for a table since we didn’t make any reservation. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait too long. Even though they prevented me from taking photos yesterday, I still managed to snap a photo of the desserts counter this time.

The PS. Profiteroles ($14.90++) were awesome! Choux pastry puffs are filled with balls of vanilla bean ice cream and drenched in chocolate sauce topped with almond flakes. Even though I generally don’t like pastry puffs, these are great as they are very soft and light. The dark chocolate sauce is another plus since it’s not sweet at all and has a slightly bitter taste—the way I like it. I think the profiteroles are much nicer than the ones at Valentino!

The Sticky Date Cake ($12.90++) is my birthday cake! And clearly a misnomer. It’s actually just a very dense cake with studs of embedded dates. It’s not sticky at all and tastes like a typical raisin cake.

Don’t order this if you are expecting something akin to the sticky date cake from Marmalade Pantry. The vanilla ice cream also tastes a little too milky.


This is Iced Lemon Peach Tea ($7++) which is brewed Ceylonese tea dusted with crushed lime and lemon wedges.

I had the PS. Digestive Tea ($7.50++) which is an original herbal infusion created to aid digestion. Marigold, honeybush, organic lemon myrtle, vervain, ginger and orange peel are used in the concoction of this tea. I like it! This is very herby and fragrant. But Hui Yi doesn’t like the taste.

The tea set comes with a very pretty English tea cup! I think it looks lovely.

Service was again very efficient. The waitress who served me the previous day also remembered me. This time though, the waitress serving us was very tall and handsome! Cute waiters aside, I like the wide space of the café and wall to ceiling glass paned windows.


This is a little haven tucked in an obscure place. But PS. Café more than compensates for its inaccessibility with its great food and ambience. I will be back again for its other delectable offerings.

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
