It's got nothing to do with that infamous Cecilia Ahern romance novel, but PS Tokyo is a love letter to Japanese flavours and culture. Decidedly minimalist, the dessert shop at SS2 goes for industrialist design in a big way: think naked light bulbs strung chandelier-style, simple wooden tables with pitch black stools and cushions, and walls devoid of wallpaper or paint (we spotted a large space at the back perfect for #ootd shots). While you’re at the counter, tip the little No-Face figurine with a 50 sen coin.
PS Tokyo's claim to fame is its soft serve ice cream, specifically the hojicha and matcha flavours using tea imported from Uji, Kyoto. You can also add toppings to your soft serve for RM3 each, but you're better off enjoying the ice cream on its own to savour the rich tea notes.
Aside from soft serve, PS Tokyo offers a range of cakes sourced from Project C, and you really shouldn't leave without trying the tofu cheesecake with ginger syrup. Other cake flavours include hummingbird, rosy mango, matcha milk chocolate and black sesame tofu cheesecake. At the moment, the menu may be quite sparse with only soft serve, cakes and Japanese-imported drinks and snacks like canned UCC Coffee and banana milk, but expect an expanded menu with waffles and affogato in future. There may even be new soft serve flavours like sakura, wasabi and squid ink added.
No café is a trend-worthy one without its Instagram edge, and PS Tokyo has it. Take a pic on your visit (this can be of anything from ambience and soft serve pics to even your #ootd shot), Instagram it with #pstokyo and get it printed on the spot for free to add to their photo wall. PS Tokyo plans to have the Instagram print counter for as long as possible, but there's no guarantee that it’ll be a permanent fixture.
