Chef Yoo was very systematic in sharing his recipes for 5 dishes and though he spoke through an interpreter, the Korean spirit of diligence and fun shone through :) Here's the famous Samgyetang (Korean Chicken Ginseng Soup) where the chicken is stuffed with rice and several herbs. Interestingly, Koreans consume soups in summer and cold dishes in winter!
Cold Korean Chicken Soup - not to be confused with Samgyetang, this dish took the longest time to prepare, and by then we were most happy to just sit back and watch the chef wield his mastery! Note the 5 colours used for garnish - red (chilli), green (cucumber skin), yellow (egg yolk), white (egg white) and black (mushroom).
A delightful end to the tasting session with my fave, Sujeonggwa (chilled sweet drink made from cinnamon, ginger and sugar) :D

P.S. I love you!
Tucked away in a secret corner of Singapore's last pockets of wooded areas, PS Cafe is a gem of a place indeed and an unbeatable location for an urban escape. The cafe expands on the quirky, retro-ish feel found in its Paragon outlet and has a lovely outdoor patio. Imagine having brunch in the cool morning air and truly enjoying that sense of freedom that nature evokes...
After skimming past the pancakes and muesli, I finally located what I'd came for - Bacon & Eggs (beautifully poached)... served with tomato, beef sausages, baked beans and two slices of toast (with a yummy tomato/garlic spread). Top that with a banana smoothie. Mumtaz and Yen Lee can vouch for the grin that went from my left to right ear :D PS Cafe is only open for brunch on weekends (9.30am to 3pm) and lunch/dinner on weekdays.
