This was bomb. Bomb because we didn't expect this to be the crowd's favourite. Quite an innovative take on sweet potato fries that actually worked well; crisp sweet potatoes that are naturally sweet and earthy that matches well with the umami flavour that Mentaiko is known for.

Reminded me of army stew and this was enjoyable. I probably took a little too much soup from my friend who was having this as her main. It went really well with my bibimbap. Nothing beats rice with soup!

This came with an assortment of ingredients such as spicy chicken carrots, spinach, mushrooms topped with gochujang dressing and sesame oil. I enjoyed it but felt like a dish that can be easily replicated at any Korean resto.

They pour whiskey on the chicken and set it on fire! It was delightful to watch and tasted pretty good and tender since it was cooked just right. At a price tag of $18, it was quite affordable.

This tasted like a Chinese noodle dish more than a Western one. It's likely due to the ingredients they use. Mix all the ingredients together and you’ll get a nice tiny crunch of the tobiko in between bites, along with shredded crab meat for texture. I did quite enjoy the al dente spaghetti tossed in beurre monte sauce.

You could smell the pesto sauce when the dish arrived. The sous-vide chicken breast meat was unfortunately quite bland. The pesto sauce was overly creamy and we couldn't taste much pesto at all. It may get a bit much if you aren't into creamy food.

This ultimately tasted like fries you can prepare at home by yourself. We couldn't taste the truffle at all, just a hint of smell of it. Skip this and get a dessert or a drink instead.

The pasta was covered in a creamy bechamel sauce that was cheesy yet not overpowering. The sauce itself was on the lighter side, making it the perfect base for the intensely-flavoured chilli crab which was equal parts sweet and spicy. The dish was also topped with sourdough breadcrumbs for an additional textural crunch. Overall, an interesting and satisfying take on the usual mac & cheese.

Definitely a fitting name for this dish. Featuring double fried french toast covered in cinnamon sugar, I could feel a layer of sugar coating my lips with each bite. Luckily, plain yogurt and fresh berries (you can also opt for bananas!) on the side helped to cut through some of the sweetness so it doesn’t feel like you’re eating a jar of sugar. The outside of the french toast had a nice crunch, while remaining soft and fluffy on the inside. Despite being double-fried, it was neither greasy nor cloying.

Was it extremely sinful? Yes. Was it worth the sharp increase in my blood sugar afterwards? Also yes.

Had it previously at Atlas Coffeehouse and this was equally good. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with salted caramel sauce. The buttermilk waffle was light and crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside.

This was a pretty rich and silky rice dish. The egg did help add a certain creaminess to it although I would have preferred it to be creamier. I'm not a fan of bacon but I understand why this was included since it adds a slightly salty edge but doesn’t overpower the risotto, and the fried enoki gave an added texture and sweetness to the dish.

Comprising a huge portion of pasta (we opted for spaghettini in place of penne), the chicken rossa would be a great choice for any carb-lover. PS Cafe does not scrimp on its ingredients, and the pasta had a good amount of chicken, bacon pieces, wilted spinach, and juicy mushrooms. The garlic tomato cream sauce was delicious, with an addictive garlic fragance. The use of bacon also added a nice smokiness to the sauce. The dish was completed with cheese shavings which had a nutty flavour and melted into soft, chewy pieces in the hot pasta.
