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.
