The new PS.Cafe weekend brunch menu has a free-flow drinks option that will turn your lazy weekend into a most pleasant and boozy one.
PS.Cafe is known for a great many things, the foremost being among the first F&B outlets in Singapore to have introduced the still-popular gastronomic oddity called truffle fries to an unsuspecting nation back in the day. In our opinion they also revolutionised the idea of wine brunches, and its all-new weekend brunch is yet another example of how they are constantly evolving the idea of how to a good time at brunch.
The new weekend brunch menu at PS.Cafe Ann Siang Hill essentially takes classic Western brunch fare – with some Asian twists – and turns them into small plates meant for sharing, so no individual needs to tank an entire full-sized dish by themselves if they so choose. That means a party of any size can order the entire menu and nibble their way through without too much gastronomic commitment.
Sure you can opt for the usual brunch suspects like Smashed Avocado Toast ($12++) and BLT Benedict ($14++), but we opted to kick our meal off in style with Gazpacho Oyster Shots ($14++). Their new Snapper Chowder Pie is absolutely delicious with chunks of fish interspersed with broccoli in a creamy base, while the mainstay Tiger Beer Battered Fish & Chips ($15++) is comforting if you’re not too adventurous. You probably can’t get away from its signature PS. Truffle Shoestring Fries ($8++) either.
Interestingly you’re better off with the Asian-inspired dishes. The Fried Laksa Noodles ($14++) tastes like a yummy mashup between laksa noodles and fried Hokkien mee, while the East-Meets-West Wok Smoked Paella ($16++) takes what are paella ingredients that’s then cooked on a wok over high heat for smoky flavours.
Some of the new dishes take the idea of the small plate to the extreme; both the Seared Sumac Sirloin ($14++) and the Green Harissa Chicken ($12++), while tasty and well executed – the marinated tomatoes accompanying the chicken were scrumptious – came on a single skewer each. Which, as you can imagine, is not quite ideal for sharing. For hungry diners, your bill can add up rather quickly if you’re not careful.
But the real reason you should come for PS.Cafe’s new weekend brunch menu is actually for its free-flow booze option. At just $60++ per person, you’ll have access to two hours worth of rather diverse boozing ranging from three cocktails – Lychee Bellini, Aperol Spritz, and PS. Bloody Mary – to Peroni on tap, and very serviceable wines such as the Langmeil Riesling, Nauta Crianza Monastrell, and even a Bertaine & Fils Rosé for that summery afternoon. We’re guessing though you’re just going to put away copious amounts of prosecco, in this case the Pasqua Passimento Romeo & Juliet NV, to cover the cost of the booze option.
Indeed what we recommend is to go all-out with the booze, while grazing on just a select number of brunch dishes. So rather heading for a hotel weekend buffet where you have to pay both a premium cover for food and also the booze, this way you can still have a wonderful time over drinks with friends without racking up too much of a bill.
The new PS.Cafe weekend brunch menu is exclusively available at PS.Cafe Ann Siang Hill from 9.30am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The two-hour free flow boozy offering will begin upon the first drinks order.
