Jypsy Martin Road is a new cafe concept by PS Cafe. 38 Martin Road (near Mohamed Sultan) was formerly occupied by another member of the PS Cafe group – Chopsuey. They have transformed the space into a casual Japanese restaurant. In keeping with their ability to churn out one stylish cafe after another in Singapore, the new restaurant Jypsy PS Cafe is another lovely place that looks like no other in Singapore. The place is less lavish and more relaxed but it is certainly no “gypsy”.
There are many choices available for an Orchard Road set lunch on a weekday. One venue which is quite attractive is Mezza9, Grand Hyatt Singapore. The options include some healthy set lunch options starting from $32++ which are pretty good value for money. If there are available credit card promotions, then it gets even better. Recently we were there armed with a UOB Infinite VISA card which has a “one dines free” deal. This equates to a 50% discount for a party of two which means $16++ for lunch at a 5-star hotel at Orchard Road Singapore. Not bad right? Do note that credit card promos often change from time to time so please check with them on the current offers at the time of reservation (which is something you need to do because it is often full at lunchtime).
Saboten Millenia Walk is one of those Japanese restaurants we can go to when we want affordable quality tonkatsu. Saboten has mastered the technique of consistently making very good deep-fried pork cutlet for the masses. Though the popular restaurant chain founded in the neighbourhood of Shinjuku in Tokyo is best known for their breaded and deep-fried pork cutlet, there are other delectable items on their menu too.
