One Faber Group launched a new hilltop garden dining concept. Used to be Spuds and Aprons. Now it is rebranded as ARBORA.
ARBORA is an eponym for the latin word “Arbor” which means trees. Located on Faber Peak Singapore, it boasts of a gorgeous view and flanked by Mount Faber Park. The all day dining menu comprised of 35 items ranging from starters, entrees and desserts created by Executive Chef Kenny Yeo.
We were invited to the opening and appended below are some of the dishes that we got to try. These were presented in bite size portions.
Braised Beef Cheek (actual portion $36++)
Marinated for at least 8 hours, then slow braised in red and port wine. It was extremely tender and alittle sweet. Comes with mashed mousseline Idaho potato and roasted root vegetables. Beef and mash, a classic and perfect combination.
Chargrilled Lamb ($36++)
Lamb chops were chargrilled. Chef Kenny concocted a special sauce for this dish. Instead of the common mint jelly, prune juice mixed with bell pepper and lemon provided that bit of zesty mouthfeel. The lamb chops does not have the gamey aftertone due to this citrussy flavors.
Prawns were sweet. Not overpowered by the garlic but still had that garlicky balanced aftertone.
Botanic Zest ($15++)
Inspired by all things botanical, this cocktail meets east and west. A mix of Roku gin, juniper berries, line, fresh young julienned ginger infused with honey. Sparkling tonic water was added for that fizzy finish. Quite a light refreshing cocktail.
To celebrate the opening, the restaurant is offering a complimentary snack or salad to diners who order any two mains off the menu. The signature Arbora craft beers is going at the promotional price of S$30++ for 3 bottles (usual price $36++).
ARBORA is a restaurant that will wow tourists and locals with its lush and relaxing surroundings. Its dining menu caters to those who love meats, cocktails and craft beers and to the health conscious.
