Top of the World Dining @ Spuds & Aprons
Ever wondered how will it feel to dine at the peak of a mountain and enjoy the top of the world dining experience?
It is a pity that Singapore does not have very tall mountains but Mount Faber is considered good enough for that elevated feel.. LOL.
Kriston and I decided to visit Spuds and Aprons at Faber Peak for brunch on a glorious weekend morning and we actually called to make a reservation as reservations are highly recommended according to online reviews.
Getting there can be a challenge especially when we do not drive and are not willing to spend the extra bucks on the cable car rides which is something most tourists would be doing. Hence we thought of a new solution – we took an MRT to Harbourfront Station and flagged a cab from VivoCity Shopping Mall… and.. guess what? The cab fare up was only SGD4++!

We opted to dine at The Garden (outdoor area) to enjoy the breeze on a hot sunny afternoon and to explore the outdoor area as well. The decor of the dining area is rather colourful and we kind of enjoyed the sky view outside 😉

The view was splendid and there was also a “Bell of Happiness” for us to take photos with and also to ring it. I think the sound produced by the bell did brighten our day somehow!

|The Menus are HUGE, CHUNKY and… HEAVY!|
|Chilling around whilst waiting for food to be served…|
We were told that our dishes need 20 minutes to be served but we waited for over 40 minutes and had to bug the staff before we finally get to eat. As this was supposed to be our brunch, we were famished and worn out from all that waiting by the time our dishes were served.
Joy Punch (S$8.00++)
Lemon Juice, Lime Juice, Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice, Grenadine
Don Pedro (S$13.00++)
Whiskey, Bailey, Milk, Cream, Vanilla Syrup and Ice-Cream

|Wicked Fries and Gravy (SGD8.00++)|
|How Soggy and Wicked!!!|
We were ultra disappointed with the fries as they are very soggy. I think the cheese fries served by KFC tasted way better (and cheaper too).
|Best Soggy Fries Ever!!!!|
Braised Lamb Shank, Provençale Style (S$25.00++)
Murray Brudge Lamb Shank Sloshed with Red Wine, Slow Cooked and served with Garlic Confit. Served with Mashed Potatoes too.
|Braised Lamb Shank, Provençale Style (S$25.00++)|
This dish tasted really bad. The gravy used tasted very similar to the one which KFC used for their whipped potatoes. Also, we had soggy potatoes overdose from the Wicked Fries earlier and hence felt disgusted instantaneously when we saw mashed potatoes served with this dish.
|Sorry to say but.. We really dislike this dish!|
|Posing with the Lame Lamb Shank…|
Braised Five Spiced Oxtail ($22.00++)
Wagyu Oxtail Rubbed with Five Spice and Braised for 3 Hours. Served with Mashed Potatoes too.
|Too Jelak.. Haix!|
