PS.Cafe – Stunning Outlet At Raffles City, Styled Like A Glasshouse In The Sky
Homegrown PS.Cafe has opened its 10th outlet at Raffles City Level 3, shortly after the One Fullerton branch with that waterfront view.
This again may sound superficial, but this PS.Cafe is very CHIO, meaning gorgeous, beautiful, and stunning.
Can I add photogenic as well?
The enclave is located on the 3rd floor of Raffles City atrium, which used to be filled with mini-exhibitions.
The exterior is designed like a green-house, with ample planters, glass panels and monochromatic coloured features, which make it stand out immediately once you get there.
Complete with the natural sunlight from the glass ceiling.
Food wise, the menu retains the PS.Cafe favourites of salads, nibbles, sandwiches, mains, pasta and cakes.
Also remaining are its more-expensive-than-average prices.
You can look out for the Buttermilk Fried Chicken ($26), Baked Greek Spinach Pie ($27) and Norwegian Smoked Salmon Sandwich ($25) which may not be available at all outlets.
Exclusive to this branch is the Mushroom & Fennel Sausage Conchiglie ($27.00) – a type of shell pasta, which I thought overall had some Asian (specifically Thai) influences.
Unfortunately, the pasta dish was too salty, somewhat oily, which the service staff commented they were trying to fine-tune. To be fair, he did offer to change to a new dish which I declined because I was already half-way through it.
Not known to many, there are some “Street Food” available, without the street food price.
You can expect the PS Crab & Prawn Laksa ($26), Szechuan Chilli Pepper Fried Rice ($25), Thai Chicken & Basil Bowl ($23), PS Prawn Noodle Soup ($23) and Chopsuey Beef Pho ($28).
Somehow, every time I come to PS.Cafe even with a different person, my friend would always order the Suzy’s Spaghetti Crab Mee Goreng ($26).
Even though it lacked of a strong wok-hei, ingredients of king prawns and fresh crab were generous. I think this is generally a safe dish to try.
The ‘star’ of PS.Cafe – the Truffle Shoestring Fries ($15), had been lacklustre on previous tries. It was either not crisp enough, or lacked the truffle aroma. A pity, really.
Or perhaps the other brunch places and cafes have caught up and offered pretty-decent versions.
Talking about pretty, this PS.Cafe is likely to pack in diners as the vibes are welcoming, offering an escape after a rushed day of shopping.
Reservations, especially during peak hours, are recommended.
