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”.
How long is the queue at Tsui Wah Clarke Quay, the new Singapore outlet of the famous Hong Kong tea restaurant or “cha charn teng”? We dislike long queues as much as we like to try new places. We had seen photos of the long queues on weekends and so we thought that it would be safe to visit Tsui Wah at an off-peak time – lunch on a weekday when Clarke Quay is usually quite deserted. But it seems that Tsui Wah has great appeal even on a weekday. There was a medium length queue of about 20 people. We decided to give it a miss and had lunch at Liang Court. We returned after lunch for a small bite and to recce the queue situation for future visits.
Sometimes referred to as the Killiney chocolate cake, the Belgium dark chocolate loaves by Freshly Baked by Le Bijoux are a hot favourite. Freshly Baked by Le Bijoux is a little bakery and cafe that occupies the first shop at the stretch of cafes and shops along Killiney Road (facing Singtel Shop Comcentre).
