PS.Cafe has opened its latest outlet at One Fullerton, and I must say it is gorgeously chio, complete with spacious interior and waterfront view. Time for an afternoon of tai-tai (or man-tai) meal and coffee.
The PS.Cafe brand has quite a following since 1999 – it has been around for that long.
With branches at Harding Road, Ann Siang Hill, Orchard Paragon, Palais Renaissance, Martin Road, Petit concept at Tiong Bahru, Choy Suey at Dempsey and Martin Road… One Fullerton makes its ninth outlet.
I know of people who are huge fans (yeah, Truffle Shoestring Fries), while I am more on the neutral side as I had favourable experiences in some, but not all the time.
The Fullerton outlet has a design which supposedly evokes a beachside boathouse ambience, with bespoke furniture, display of greens, different seating sections which can possibly create a varied experience every time you come.
There is an open air terrace where most of the diners I noticed were seated at, well to enjoy the cool bay breeze. I chose the air-con side for obvious reasons.
My main gripe about some cafés is the lack of space (can’t help it in land-scarce Singapore), but this PS.Cafe has a 5000 square feet area and tall ceilings. On the flipside, they probably need to station more staff for diners who are seated at more obscure corners.
Brunch favourites include Salmon Royale Benedict with poached eggs, gravlax, avocado and hollandaise on focaccia, and PS. Fluffy Pancakes with homemade banana jam, blueberries, passionfruit curd and fresh cream.
The exclusive new dishes here include Chargrilled Skate ($34) with green harissa and broccolini, Moules Vin Blanc ($28) with crusty dipping bread, and Chargrilled Chunky Prawn Sandwich ($27) with spiced pickled mango, kaffir lime aioli, shoestring fries and house sourdough.
Lighter options and desserts include Baked Greek Spinach Pie ($27) with ricotta, feta, mint and house pesto, Poached Chicken Salad ($25), with lentils, buckwheat, pomegranate, hazelnuts and smoked yoghurt, Crème Caramel Orange Cake and Mrs. J’s Trifle Bomb.
I initially wanted to order the predictable PS. Truffle Shoestrings Fries ($15), but the server recommended me to try the Crispy Smashed Potatoes ($12). I trusted her because she bothered to run through a significant part of the menu with me.
It turned out to be quite a worthy choice, with crisp and deep-fried till brown potato pieces dipped in an addictive sticky BBQ dip and honey & mint labneh.
This is the type of nibbles that you could not stop reaching out for the end remnants.
The Poached Chicken Salad ($25) wasn’t quite what I was expecting, and wished it was a notch less creamy as much of the greens were covered with smoked yogurt.
I never had Asian food before at PS.Cafe and thought I should give the Suzy’s Spaghetti Crab Mee Goreng ($26) a go.
While it is considered expensive hotel-restaurant price, I enjoyed that there was significant chucks of fresh crab meat and king prawns. As spaghetti noodles were used, there was less of the rich alkaline taste that some yellow noodles would have.
PS.Cafe One Fullerton probably has the whole package together, from space, interior, a comprehensive menu, to that view. Food is considered expensive, but guess people are willing to pay that price for the ambience.
