Wickedly Sinful Food at Spuds & Aprons

Taking over the space that once housed The Altivo Bar & Glass Bar at Mount Faber is chill-out joint Spuds & Aprons. Mainly alfresco (the outdoor garden seats 160), this casual eatery is a myriad of colors with its large panel of multicolored aprons by the stage where a live band performs on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30pm. An air-conditioned indoor seating of 50 is also available for those who aren’t conditioned to our humid weather (we speak for ourselves).

Catering to families and tourists (after all, it’s a mere cable car ride away from Sentosa), the extensive menu includes both local and international dishes that are generously portioned—read: value-for-money. We reckon you’re better off leaving your diet plans at the door with starters like the wicked fries and gravy ($8)—doused in a tasty brown gravy and six types of cheese—obviously created to instantly eliminate hunger pangs (and weight loss).

While you wait for the entrees, quench your thirst with the signature Dom Pedro milkshake ($13)—an indulgent concoction of Whiskey, Baileys Irish cream, Milk, (more) cream, vanilla syrup and vanilla ice cream. Well, we did warn you about leaving diet plans at the door.

Must-tries include the fatty Wagyu oxtail ($22) that’s rubbed with five spice and braised for three hours; hence its meltingly sweet and tender meat, as well as crispy pork belly ($26)—cooked sous vide with homemade pineapple pickles served alongside. Heads up: the crispy pork belly sells out fast due to limited quantities, so be sure to call in and order ahead of time.

Also delicious is the tobiko crusted cod fillet ($28). Oven roasted before being topped with buttery sweet aged ponzu sauce and of tobiko, this appetizing beauty is placed atop a bed of green tea soba noodles.

If you’re lucky, this off-the-menu creation might just be available. The Wagyu steak (with a marbling score of six to eight) is a seasonal dish with a creamy mushroom ragout and a pinch of Austria rock salt from the Alps. We especially loved how the gravy enhanced the flavors of the beef.

If you’re an adventurous foodie, chempedek bread and butter pudding ($10) is just the thing for you—flaky croissants add a nice crunchy texture to the traditional dessert. Expect intense flavors of chempedek (a tropical Southeast Asian fruit similar to jackfruit) with chucks of chewy fruit.

A sweeter dessert option comes in the form of jar of happiness ($10). Shortbread biscuits with almond flakes, mixed berries and Ben & Jerry’s vanilla ice cream is topped with a thick warm berry compote—mixed layers of crunch and sweetness make for a delightful way to end the meal.
