1. The location, which is atop Mount Faber, is just spectacular
2. It's new so I was curious what the food was like there
So going there, had to take a cab up to the Mount Faber. When my friends and I arrived at the restaurant, we were quite impressed. It was like a tree house and the floor was made out of wood planks. There were also real trees which add to this ambiance. Anyway, I made reservations so we got seated right away.
What we ordered were:
1. Wicked Fries for sharing
2. Pasta Vongole - for long life
3. Oven-roasted Marinated Mustard Chicken
4. BBQ Baby Back Ribs
5. Crispy Pork Belly
6. Grilled Char Siew Lamb Rack
There were nothing stellar about the dishes. All of them were just plain average and didn't wow my palate. The fries were thick cut and were drenched with BBQ sauce and Cheese. It wouldve been better if maybe the sauce was separate so at least the fries were crispy.
The Pork belly was good too, the skin was very crispy and it was the first thing which everyone went for.. since all of us shared the dishes. The lamb was a bit gamy so I didn't even finish my share.
We had these dishes with beer. There was a 1-for-1 promotion until 8pm and we were there at 730pm, Just in time!
