JYPSY, a spin-off, offers the same relaxed modern vibe, Japanese-style.
PS. Cafe regulars know it for its truffle fries. Naturally, like any younger sibling, its new sister restaurant JYPSY has its take on the snack. Called Nest of Fries, it’s crispy shredded potato with white truffle oil, wasabi mayonnaise and teriyaki balsamic sauce. It’s not only a reinvention of the traditional kakiage dish of chopped tempura vegetables, it also offers a taste of how JYPSY is inspired by the nomadic and the free-spirited.
Helmed by the same three fellows behind PS. Cafe (Singaporeans Peter Teo and Philip Chin, and Briton Richard Chamberlain), the menu, created by Chef Taka, mirrors the latter’s training in both authentic Japanese cooking and modern concepts, blending whimsy with serious produce. There’s classic sashimi (air-ﬂown, with nama wasabi and shoyu) as well as his JYPSY sashimi creation, and some dishes draw on the chef’s childhood – such as Obasan’s Sticky Beef Sliders, from his mother’s recipe. - HIY
The sunlit 65-seater is as expansive and homely as any PS. Cafe.
Nest of Fries ($11) is to JYPSY what truffle fries are to PS. Cafe. In the evenings, pair it with a yuzu gin fizz ($17) or turmeric pisco sour ($19).
