Dempsey welcomes its newest addition, Chopsuey Cafe, by the PS. Cafe Group.
Inspired by fond memories of westernized Chinese food while overseas as homesick students and travelers, as well as requests from customers of PS. Cafe, partners Peter Teo and Philip Chin decided to set up Chopsuey Cafe, their first foray into Asian cuisine.
Located in a corner black-and-white colonial house in Dempsey with an alfresco area, the spot serves up familiar classics such as General Tso’s Chicken Drumlets ($21) and sweet corn and fresh crab egg drop soup ($18), as well as contemporary items including twice-cooked citrus and spice beef short rib ($28) and Sticky Crunchy Baby Squid ($16).
There’s also a handsome cocktail menu organized by style—shaken, muddled or stirred—with cute names like Szechuan Mary ($18), their take on a Bloody Mary jazzed up with Sichuan spices, and the signature Chopsuey Mai Tai ($22), an intriguing mix of pineapple, mandarin, coconut and lemongrass backed by nine-spice rum and chili-infused white rum.
