Tif, Evan and I met up on a Sunday morning to have brunch at PS Cafe, Palais Renaissance.
I've been to this branch on two separate occasions but never in the day time. It was always too dark to notice the beautiful decor of the restaurant.
Do you always wonder who writes those chalkboard menus? I do. I admire their handwriting in chalk. That was the first time I see the writing in progress.
We had a very satisfying and filling breakfast. PS Cafe usually serves very generous portions.
After our meal, we chatted over pots of tea.
It is really lovely to catch up with friends on a lazy Sunday.
I was posing with Evan's Louis Vuitton Damier Berkeley as it was one of my dream city bag for a while until I carried hers and realized how heavy the bag was even without its contents.
We chatted and shopped till the sunset after which we parted ways for our own programmes.
For dinner, I headed over to L'artisan Bistro & Bar at Orchard Towers to meet kh and family. It was a day before my mil's birthday and instead of the usual Chinese family dinner, we decided to tease their tastebuds a little by opting for authentic European cuisine after our very favourable experiences here and here.
The second link would lead you to pretty detailed review of this place during my first visit there with kh.
My parents-in-law both felt that the dishes were quite unique and very different from our usual eats but they also agreed that the food was good.
These were what we ordered for starters.
These were all the mains.
When it comes to ordering dishes, it is the same for mine and his family. We tend to each order different dishes so that we could all snitch from one another and get to taste more dishes.
As mentioned before in my review, you can see that presentation of food is not on the top of their priority list. However as cliche as it sounds, "don't judge a book by its cover". In this case don't judge a dish by its presentation coz all the food was delectable and we finished every morsel of food on the plates.
Their desserts are to die for!
From left to right: hazelnut ice cream topped with kahlua, marinated strawberries with rum/kirsch (and other secret concoction), apricot sorbet... all home made.
Signing off with love,
