Stepping into P.S. Cafe Palais Renaissance makes one feel away from the hustle and bustle of Orchard and into a chic, classy cafe in the Colonial era.
Having heard so much about P.S. Cafe and its truffle fries, we decided to visit it during teatime on a weekend.
As you can see from the photos, P.S. Cafe at Renaissance has high ceilings and drawdown windows. The whole ambience is consistent to its theme from flooring to furniture.
As you step into the restaurant, you will be invited by a row of cakes on display. The display of cakes totally whet our appetites and make us want to try every cake that is on sale.
The highlight was the Shoestring Truffle Fries ($15). Being a huge fan of truffle fries, we were delighted to see a huge pile of fries atop the plate. It is best eaten immediately after it's served. The fries are golden brown and topped with cheese. I would prefer a little more cheese with it though. The truffle taste is not consistent throughout the whole dish as some parts had more truffle oil while others were rather bland. This is recommended for sharing! Not the best we tasted, but, reasonably priced we feel.
Sticky Lemon and Chewy Florentine Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream (about $10) was our choice for cake. The lemon flavor we felt, was not very strong. The sticky walnut and some preserved fruits was sweet and thus went well with the cake. The vanilla ice-cream accompanied the cake well. For those who want to try something different from P.S. Cafe, this cake would be a good choice! It goes well with some coffee and tea.
Overall, we really enjoyed the time in P.S. Cafe as we could really enjoy our teatime amidst a fairly nice and peaceful ambience. I guess when there's a crowd, the ambience might be different. We will be back to have tea sessions and try their other desserts!
