Thanks to the great folks at Faber Peak Singapore, I won $100 Faber Peak dining voucher in their recent Facebook Valentine's Day
A brief background - Located at the top of the hill at Mount Faber, the premise was given a complete make over and transformed into a bright and colorful F&B joint. Spuds & Aprons
(what a unique name!) brands itself as a fun and playful F&B joint
serving up yummy east and west dishes
. My wife and I patronized this lovely place on 21st February 2015 (3rd day of the CNY). Upon stepping into Spuds & Aprons, we were warmly greeted by their service staff and bought to our reserved seats promptly. To make eating a comforting affair, you can opt to chill out at the air-conditioned Dining Room
or relax at the alfresco Garden
. Whatever you choose, both locations offer breath taking view of Sentosa and the alluring city.
Spuds & Aprons - Colorful Entrance!
Spuds & Aprons - Interior Dining Room
Spuds & Aprons - Comfortable Cushioned Sofas
We opted for the a seat by the side in the alfresco garden as we like the gentle breeze and the open environment. We made the right choice with dinner in the late evening as we managed to catch the beautiful sunset
from the comfort of our seats. Our neighbour diners were caught busy snapping photographs using their smartphone from their seats too!
Spuds & Aprons - Beautiful sunset
Perhaps the best feature of Spuds & Aprons is the scenic view of the cable cars
. Lights from the surrounding buildings and cable cars in the sky made the view even more picturesque. If you come to this place on a Saturday in the evening, you get to enjoy a bonus i.e. 8pm firework displays at Universal Studios Singapore. It was spectacular and awesome to watch the fireworks during CNY !!!

So much for the ambience, let's get started with the food and drinks!
For the starters
, at the recommendation of the friendly service staff (Wingo), we ordered the Chilli Crab in a Tux
. This dish was so appertizing! We did not realize that we finished it so quickly! The chef prepared hot chilli crab and stuffed it in potato skins. It was really delicious and if this is your first visit, I would recommend that you should try this dish.
Delicious! Must Order
For the main dishes
, again at the recommendations of Wingo, we ordered Oven-roasted mustard marinated chicken and Crispy Pork Belly
. The chicken was massaged and roasted till golden brown and served with homemade gravy and mashed spuds. The pork belly was soaked in a hot tub and slowly cooked until fork tender. It was perfectly crispy and yet tender
. It was served with homemade pineapple pickle and roasted spuds.
Lovely roasted mustard marinated chicken!

For the desserts
, we were undecided between two recommended choices i.e. Chempedak Bread
and Jar of Happiness Ice cream
. Finally, we left it in the good hands of Wingo who insisted that we should try something different. We ordered the Chempedak Bread & Butter Pudding.
It was a croissant with creamy custard and chempedak (hot)
served with Haagen Dazs Vanilla ice cream (cold)
. We ended the night with a nice and sweet comfort food.
Hot and Cold Dessert! Nice Chempedak Bread!
For the drinks
, we ordered the non-alcoholic mocktail and smoothies. My wife tried their famous Spuds & Aprons' Sodas With Nata D' Coco Jello and wild berries
. I tried their Minty Mango Madness
. The soda was refreshing and fruity! My smoothies was a fushion of mango mix, mango sorbet, yogurt and mint syrup. We enjoyed ourselves very much by sipping the drinks slowly while enjoying the beautiful sunset!
Refreshing and Fruity!
Smoothies for those who love mango!
We enjoyed our dinner at Spuds & Aprons!
