AustWine - nice ambience and food

My colleague recommended this interesting chillout place, Aust Wine @ Farm Mart near the West / North-west area, so I decided to give it a shot this weekend. Farm Mart is, by the way, a rather huge area comprising of coffee shop stalls, tables for dining, and rows of pet shops, fresh eggs wholesalers and geomancers.   Offering a relaxing ambience for both indoor dining and breezy alfresco dining, Aust Wine is frequented by families, couples and groups of young friends all enjoying drinks and good food on an unhurried Saturday evening. The service is rather good, and they don't even charge service charge for such efficiency and politeness!   We dined outdoors, letting the kiss of the winds and sounds of nature set the ambience for a fun dinner.    We had  the Popcorn Chicken was served. Note that we only ordered this item as a before-meal munchy because the main course we ordered would take 30 minutes to prepare, so I thought of having something to chew on while waiting. The popcorn chicken were served in bite sizes, and the outside was crispy while inside, rather tender.    The main course was the Pork Knuckle - served with lots of sides such as potato wedges, carrot sticks, sweet corn, brocooli and fresh lettuce platter. The pork knuckle was very crispy on the outside (the skin) and the flesh was quite tender; it was very easy to cut, and was not too salty.    The potato wedges were scrumtiously crispy, and I enjoyed the sweet crisps of the fresh vegetables accompaniments.   For more detailed information and photos, do pop by: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/02/dinner-at-aust-wine-farm-mart.html

Aust Wine @ Farm Mart - awesome

My colleague recommended this interesting chillout place, Aust Wine @ Farm Mart near the West / North-west area, so I decided to give it a shot this weekend. Farm Mart is, by the way, a rather huge area comprising of coffee shop stalls, tables for dining, and rows of pet shops, fresh eggs wholesalers and geomancers.

Offering a relaxing ambience for both indoor dining and breezy alfresco dining, Aust Wine is frequented by families, couples and groups of young friends all enjoying drinks and good food on an unhurried Saturday evening. The service is rather good, and they don't even charge service charge for such efficiency and politeness!

We dined outdoors, letting the kiss of the winds and sounds of nature set the ambience for a fun dinner. The Cream of Mushroom soup came first -  looking deceptively plain but tasting rather redolent of button mushroom's flavor. A hot delight on a cool night as such

The main course was the Pork Knuckle - served with lots of sides such as potato wedges, carrot sticks, sweet corn, brocooli and fresh lettuce platter. The pork knuckle was very crispy on the outside (the skin) and the flesh was quite tender; it was very easy to cut, and was not too salty. 

 The potato wedges were scrumtiously crispy, and I enjoyed the sweet crisps of the fresh vegetables accompaniments.

Good wine in the middle of nowhere

AustWine @ Farmart   Ever craved to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city? 
 
  Well. you can't get any further away than this. Hidden ( and I really mean well hidden) in Farmart, deep inside Sungei Tengah, just behind Qianhu Fish farm lies this gem.
  
 For such a location, even for a Friday night, the place was rather packed. 
 
 
 
 
   Nice Chill out ambience , light jazz in the background. And surprisingly a pretty good ( and reasonably priced wine cellar!
 
 

As the name implies, the restaurant specialises in australian wine. Me and the missus share a bottle of Sparkling Moscato.
 
 A hint of strawberry and citrus with a crisp sweet floral aftertaste. Very nice.
 
 
 
 Crispy pork knuckles. Not exactly exotic but a pretty reasonable rendition here. Crispy skin, with fork tender meat. Not the very best pork knuckle in Singapore of course, but worth a try if you're there.

 Bangers and mash. Seems like run of the mill store bought sausages with limp vegetables and horrors of horrors, powdered mash? Very disappointing. 
 
  All in all a pretty decent gem. A couple of hits and misses on the food, but the cheap wine and nice ambience makes it worth it.

Best Pork Knuckle in Singapore

After having Port Knuckle from Werner's along East Coast Road, Paulaner Brahaus in Millenia Walk, Baden Baden in Holland V, Brotzeit in Vivocity, I still go back to Austwine in Farmart (not Formart) for my pork knuckle.

Good sized portion with loads of sides, will recommend you to order one portion for 2 people with some side dishes. Never 2 mains. Most importantly, priced very reasonable.

The best thing is the wine list is so extensive and inexpensive.

Best kept secret I believe!

Short Review

A group of us went over late night to chill and try out their food. Service was pretty good as the service crew explain to us that we can still sit around after they had closed. Ambience was quiet and cosy too... apart from the cat's 'whining' or chasing around at times. You can choose between sitting under the fan or inside the restaurant.

The food was generally ok, though nothing appealing. We ordered Chicken Chop, Bockwurst Sausages, Seafood Spahetti Tomato, Potato Wedges, Spring Rolls, Honey Prawn. One item that we should not have ordered is the Spring Rolls. The spring rolls taste not nice at all.

Unlike the previous review, THERE IS GST in our bill. But there is no additional service tax though, which is good...
