PS.Cafe (Palais Renaissance)

Average: 3 (1 vote)

A beauty through and through, the interior of this dining spot looks like a museum. On offer are creations like mushroom wellington and banana pancakes. Go for options like the green goddess pesto pasta if you're feeling super hungry, or try their famed truffle shoestring fries.

If you think the first two branches of PS. Café are pretty, this outlet at Palais Renaissance takes the cake in terms of classiness and design brilliance. The interior is awash in rich black hues with beautiful imported European floor tiles, while the outdoor area overlooks lush greenery. The food, however, was not as impressive. Our appetizer, the poached salmon with char-grilled asparagus was a let-down with its meager portion and average taste. The roasted roma tomato soup fared better—we liked how the robust, tangy flavors complemented the slightly pungent chunks of sheep feta cheese. Our main course, the crab tart with lime and peppercorn sauce was nice but hardly rave-worthy, given its price. But our dessert saved the day—the Maltese-topped chocolate crunch doorstop cake tasted as luscious as it looked, with a paving of walnuts sandwiched between rich chocolate mousse on top and dense fudge below. With its gorgeous ambiance, to-die-for desserts and warm service, we'll pass up a proper meal here but not a chillout session with sweet-toothed pals.

Who needs breakfast or lunch? Brunch is the meal du jour. These are our favorite places to have brunch in Singapore.
