In-mall dining is about as romantic as a Saturday afternoon in IKEA, but even though the latest PS Café is stationed in the Palais Renaissance, this third, demure outlet surprises with its charm. The space – think colonial conservatory with rattan seating – is divided into three sections: a bar/patisserie where the famous PS cakes are displayed; a large, dimly lit section favoured by hip media types; and the pièce de résistance, a whitetiled terrace with colossal windows that open onto a view of the verdant Thai Embassy grounds (though blinds shoot down at the first sign of rain). Try the café’s famed Chocolate Crunch Doorstep Cake ($15.90) and onion-heavy PS Steak Burger ($28).
NB - Taxi drop off point at rear of Palais in Claymore Drive - book a cab before leaving to avoid walking your date past Orchard Towers cab rank.
