Spuds & Aprons at Mount Faber

Last Friday, I was invited by the lovely people from Mount Faber Leisure Group for a dinner at Spuds & Aprons!
Spuds&aprons
A PLACE WHERE FOOD JUNKIES GET TOGETHER

When the hunger pangs peak and you just wanna dig in without a care, there’s only one thing to do – let yourself go and indulge in some wickedly sinful food! We promise we will tell no one.


What’s more, at Spuds & Aprons you will find yourself at the top of the hill at Mount Faber with other food junkies. Get high on the eating, let the greenery relax you and drink in the view of the running cable car line, the Harbour and Sentosa Island.

Complimentary cable car ride was arranged for Jj and I! 
It's been sucha long time since both of us last sat a cable ride in Singapore!

I was welcomed by Chelsea upon alighting from the cable car and was led to Spuds & Aprons, which I fell in love immediately due to the welcoming and cosy Al Fresco dining concept!

For a start, we had the Lychee Martini ($15) as well as the Sexy Strawberry Milkshake ($8)!

One of their 'Die Die Must Try' Milkshake is the Dom Pedro ($13), consisting of Whisky, Bailey, Milk, Cream, Vanilla Syrup & Ice Cream, which is essentially an alcohol-based milkshake!! Pretty interesting isn't it?? But because I had the Lychee Martini already and I didn't want to be overwhelmed by alcohol that night, I went ahead with the Strawberry Milkshake instead which was also really refreshing and good!!



Now comes my favourite part - FOOD !!!!
If you know me, I love food and I can be a little greedy at times~ Hahha I really wanted to try almost everything off the menu that night :O But well, the capacity of our stomachs can only be this much... so we had the highly recommended dishes!


APPETISERS:

Long touted as happy food, lift your mood with the humble potato fries, wickedly lashed over with thick, hot gravy and 6 types of cheese - Wicked Fries & Gravy ($8)

Chilli Crab in a Tux ($12) - Chilli Crab Stuffed in Potato Skins

Can I say I major love the Chilli Crab in a Tux!!!!
First, NO PEELING/CRACKING of crab shells and NO DIRTYING of our hands!! WHOOOPP!!!!
Second, it was really a real deal. I was expecting the sauce to be sweet>spicy but I was blown away on my first bite!! The crab meat was filling and the sauce really tasted like those authentic seafood chilli crab kinda sauce yknow!

Since our main dishes required another 10 minutes.. Jj and I took the opportunity to walk around the whole place!

Crispy Pork Belly ($26)

I really really... really love eating pork, especially pork belly!!! NOMZ.
So I would say I know my 'pork' really well HAHAHA :p

And this... WAS AMAZING!! The skin was sooooo crispy I can't even...
I was told by Chelsea that this is one of the chef's speciality dish! He would first boil the pork belly before pan frying it till the skin becomes crisp-perfect! 
Not to mention, the homemade pineapple pickle and salad really complemented the pork belly well! :)

Guilty to say this... but I finished the entire Jar of Happiness ALL BY MYSELF. ~_~
But I guess that just goes to show how good this Jar of Happiness was! Hehe :p
And I also have to say this... the strawberries are SO SUPER SWEET!!!??!! I never liked strawberries alot because most of them are always sour! But this was surprisingly sweet and fresh! 


Ahhh what a perfect ending dish to this perfect dinner at such a perfect romantic place!!
