Chopsuey Cafe

Adira Chow

Time Out says

Nestled in a quiet corner at Dempsey Hill sits Chopsuey Cafe, a brand and concept under PSGourmet group, the folks behind the wildly popular PS.Cafe chain. But instead of dishing out shoestring truffle fries, Chopsuey Cafe endeavours to bring something entirely new to the table – Anglo-Chinese cuisine. 

Lovingly named after the American-Chinese dish chop suey, the restaurant pays homage to comforting and classic Asian fare you might find in Europe and abroad. Expect to see your local zichar favourites taking on a different accent thanks to Chef Wai’s signature East-meets-West style. 

A nod to PS.Cafe’s iconic design, Chopsuey Cafe sports a similar colonial-themed black-and-white outfit, with ornate furnishings and decor. The breezy, expansive space allows for a generous seating area with both indoor and alfresco options. To top it off: floor-to-ceiling windows with unobstructed views of the luscious greenery outside.


The portions at Chopsuey Cafe are equally generous. Start off with the Crispy Duck Pow! Pockets ($17), which come with shredded duck confit and pulled roast duck wrapped in fluffy steamed buns with a warm sweet bean sauce. Those who love some variety should opt for the Dim Sum Basket (from $19), which lets you munch on six to nine morsels of delight, including fried pumpkin skin and white skin siew mai. 

For the main event, General Tso’s Pork Ribs ($32) fares well with the regulars. A zesty, tangy sauce made from fresh orange juice coats each bite. Another crowd favourite: the Szechuan Pepper Chilli Chicken ($24). A milder take on the fiery classic, you’ll find chicken tenders tossed in wok-fried dried chilli, garlic flowers, tofu, cashews and a friendlier version of Szechuan pepper sauce. Chopsuey Cafe might not be for the purists, but its unapologetic take on Anglo-Chinese fare has earned it its own fan base over the years, whether it's for languid lunches or a hearty dinner affair.
