Never understood why they took this sinfully mouthwatering salad off the menu at PS.Cafe. Other than the signature truffle fries, this is one dish i would order again and again at PS.Cafe if they hadn’t taken it off the menu. So this is kind of a tribute to an ingenious salad with an Asian twist. I was completely taken with the fragrant peanut sauce, crispy tofu noodles and cashew nut crunch atop a healthy mix of red cabbage, potatoes, sugar snap peas, avocado, bean sprouts and quail eggs. I say bring back this Gado Gado Salad already, PS.Cafe!

We ordered the must-order har cheong pork kerepok, hae bee hiam spaghettini, mushroom and double cheese beef burger and some fries with bonito flakes and chives. The most memorable dish was the har cheong pork kerepok which was basically paper thin strips of pork belly marinated in shrimp paste then deep fried. They should just bottle this and sell it as a CNY snack already cos the umami pork belly crisps were really addictive and I had never tasted anything like this. It would be a perfect CNY snack and a welcome change from the usual boring salted egg fish skin and potato chips. The burger and fries were meh. The hae bee hiam spaghettini would appeal to those who like spice.

Came here to celebrate one of my bestie’s birthday and it was the perfect choice! We ordered a total of 6 dishes including a chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream (not pictured) and all hit the right notes! We ordered the white bait with chili salt, cauliflower florets with spicy mint aioli (not pictured) sakura ebi angel hair pasta, 36 hrs duck confit with truffle emulsion and lemon mustard vinaigrette; grilled striploin with garlic ponzu. We would be hard pressed to select a favourite cos all were soooo good though I am slightly partial to the striploin just cos I’m a beef lover. The dessert paled in comparison to the appetisers and mains which were the real stars (I went back on another visit and tried the pear tart and would rate it as good as its savoury counterparts) Significant damage but totally worth it cos it was for a bestie’s birthday. Service was impeccable too. They will advise if you order too many dishes.

I would order this again and again. This fanciful name of a potato skins deserve special mention for its expertly deep fried texture without being greasy and cloying. It comes with bbq dip and a honey and mint yogurt cheese dip. The ambience is also perfect for a romantic date with the awesome waterfront views though it can get rather hot if you sit near the windows. Best to go during dinner. Oh and don’t forget to make a booking! Expect this place to be jam packed and jumpin’.
