PS. Café #1
28B Harding Road
Christina and I met up for a late dinner at Dempsey Hill. This is our first time here and it can get quite confusing with the many different roads. It also doesn’t help that there were minimal streetlamps and signs to help us get our bearings.
After some wrong turns, we finally found PS. Café. It’s really quite secluded but the traffic level is still very high! Since we didn’t make any reservation, we were lucky to get a table at the lounge after waiting for about 25 mins.
The Coconut Crusted Sea Bass ($28++) was excellent! I’m so glad I chose this. The sea bass fillet is pan seared perfectly and all the juices are retained. Usually I don’t eat the skin of any fish but I ate the skin this time since it’s so crispy and fragrant with the coconut bits on it. The spicy curry sauce and tangy green apple chutney complement the sea bass so well!
Another thing I like is the sweet potato vanilla mash which is not buttery yet smooth enough. The vegetable pakora (a sort of Japanese vegetable tempura) is too salty though. Nevertheless, this is a must try! It’s so good that I polished off everything on my plate.
But the creamy and savory cheddar sauce gets overwhelming after some time and the strong flavor covers the freshness of the fish. The dressing of the side rustic salad has a very nice tangy taste and the greens are very fresh.
The Double Chocolate Blackout ($13.90++) was a mind-blowing experience. The cake is very dense and decadent. Eating it topped with the New Zealand vanilla ice cream is just pure bliss. I love the dark, slightly bitter chocolate that doesn’t even have a hint of milk in it.
This is the most chocolatey cake I’ve ever eaten! Trust me, this sinful, mile-high chocolate fudge cake is made for serious, hard-core chocolate lovers. Even Christina (who is the ultimate chocoholic) agrees that this is a very intense cake. This is a dessert meant to be shared and savoured slowly to prolong the ecstasy.
Service was generally efficient even though the place is packed to the max. Our waitress was a little unfriendly though as she never smiled at us the whole time we were there. Even though it was past 10pm, there were still many people waiting for a table which testified the popularity of the café.
Granted, this place is a little pricey but the quality and portion of the food is top notched. The ambience is great with soft lighting and candles on the tables. Note: Photo taking is not allowed here and I was prevented from snapping a photo of the mouth-watering desserts displayed on the counter by the entrance.
