Thirty two dollars for a crab tart? You absolute madman! Look, everyone knows that @pscafe is one of OG overpriced cafés in Singapore, but still. Thirty two bucks. Bruhhh.⠀

Yes, I ordered their $32++ crab tart even though my rational self said the exact same thing. However, that crab tart was more the size of a particularly ponderous pie with a supremely satisfying buttery pie crust, and it was absolutely stuffed to the gills with blue swimmer crab meat. Don’t believe me? Just look at the cross section of it. Now watch it, drink it in. I swear you’ll never see anything like this ever again!⠀

Aside from the sweet taste of vindication from realising that the thirty two buckaroos were truly well invested, the crab within was subtly sweet and daintily briny, and it mainly relied on the lush lobster bisque for depth & complexity of flavours. It does get quite monotonous without the lobster bisque, but they’ve very cleverly included a dollop of surprisingly spicy harissa to make your affair a steamy & sweaty one. ⠀

Therein lies the Achilles heel of the crab tart: it was overly reliant on a brilliant element that was in short supply. Said lobster bisque was thick, rich and astonishingly addictive. Its unbelievable unctuousness left me craving for a lot more of it, and that was a craving that would unfortunately go unsatisfied.⠀

Tl;dr? @pscafe crab tart is simply stellar, and is worth the splurge to make your special occasion just that little touch more special.
