Foodie Friday: Spuds & Aprons@The Jewel Box

Foodies rejoice! A new family-friendly modern restaurant has opened atop Mt. Faber. Many used to associate Mt. Faber dining with parking woes and stiff, pricey F&B options. Not anymore! We were pleased that with the opening of Spuds & Aprons, there is now DAILY FREE VALET for all diners (with minimum S$30 spending) and the restaurant has been 're-invented' to offer "wickedly" good food in a cosy, relaxed, fun ambiance.

 The best thing about dining at Spuds & Aprons has got to be its unblocked view of Sentosa and the alluring landscapes of the Harbour beyond. Come evenings of Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, there is a live band to serenade you as you chill, unwind and enjoy the company of your friends and loved ones in this breezy dining gem.

 You get to witness spectacular sunsets here...

They is a little floral arch with a relic of a large bell from an actual ship to ring in that special romantic occasion - be it weddings, engagement or anniversaries!

I used to live in the area and we always had trouble looking for a nice place that opens late for dinner. Too bad no longer in Singapore to try. :( The view and food looks gorgeous.

I are at the previous incarnation of this restaurant (can't remember what it was called) and I agree, the view is pretty spectacular! The food at Spuds looks good!
