Samy’s Curry Restaurant (Dempsey)

Samy’s Curry has been at Dempsey for the longest time. I had my very first Nasi Bryani and Flower Crabs here when I was about 7 or 8 years old? (And since it has been a while since I was that age, Im guessing this place must have been around for quite some time now!) Anyway this place brings back so many nostalgic memories. I remember the days when the curry and masala used to be so spicy for me, I had to down mugs of lime juices and suck on ice cubes but I have improved much since then… I am glad to say that the taste has not changed much over the years and bryani is best served on banana leaves :)

Although, prices are a little steep..we paid $70+ for 3 people

Fish Head Curry (Small)
Plain Naan
Nasi Bryani
2 Flower Crabs

The service and atmosphere definitely makes up for it. But honestly, how cheap do you expect the prices to be when the restaurant is located in Dempsey??

Margarita’s @ Dempsey Hill

Came here with the family for my birthday dinner! Heard that it was difficult to do walk-ins or even get a booking on the day itself but we were lucky enough to get a table though we only called on the morning itself! :D

I did try the branch at Faber Drive about 3 years ago and so I was curious to find out if the original branch here at Dempsey was any better! :)

Chicken Grande Taco Salad $18– Huge tortilla basket filled with with lots of crisp vegetables, beans, cheese, tender grilled chicken fillets, guacamole and sour cream

Grilled Fish Burrito with Chipotle $24

Kitchen Sink Burrito $20– The tortilla with everything but the kitchen sink! Chicken, beef, refried beans and rice in a large flour tortilla with salsas, cheese, guacamole with sour cream

Food was really good and I loved the ambiance. Very pretty :) Got a few nice family photos taken here :) Even daddy and mummy who are not really fans of Mexican food enjoyed their meal so I guess that says a lot!

PS. Cafe @ Harding Road (Dempsey)

So we took a cab here from Casa Verde because we were craving for good old chocolate desserts and PS. Cafe never fails to deliver in their desserts. It’s like a fail proof go-to place whenever one has a dessert craving.

*NEW* PS. Chocolate Mousse (made with 72% Valrhona Chocolate) $14.90

Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie served with Vanilla ice-cream

Check out the many pecans in the layers!

Though the desserts here are always awesome, prices are a little on the hefty side. Total bill for 2 desserts and 2 teas came up to $50.81 which was more expensive than dinner ($43). So while I really do love PS. Cafe with their food, delish cakes and pretty ambiance, cant afford to go there as often as I would like to! :(
