Spruce at Fire Station

Spruce at Bukit Timah has taken over the old Fire Station, converting the space into a 3000 sqft dining area which is able to accommodate up to 150 people in indoors. The old building has been built way back in 1956 and each time as I pass by, my attention will all be drawn on those big giant red doors which were retained.

Concept of Spruce was laid-back, serving unpretentious modern American Cuisine.

Beside serving signature dishes and  the occasional wine dinners, they also feature a bakery with freshly baked pastries and breads which was made inhouse daily.

Paper mat for the Table
Location is perfect with just a stone throw away from Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. However due to its location, it might be a tad inaccessible if you are taking public transport. For those who are driving, do make sure that if you do not miss the turn into the carpark or you have to make a long way through before making a U-Turn.

Interior
To keep the atmosphere lively, there are live bands available at some of the nights adding joys to chill outs sessions for the diners.

Bar Counter
Chef Signature, surprisingly comes with tender braised beef cheek stacked under a bed of Polenta accompanied by french beans and carrots.

Chef's Special
One of its chef recommended mains to be ordered, Spruce Burger. Buns was slightly toasted and with some crisp at the circumferences topped iwth both white and black sesame, interesting!

Signature burger
Beef patty was juicy and comes with homemade pickles, cheddar cheese with herbed flavoured thick cut fries by the side.

Spruce Burger - $18

Ambience is good for relaxing and unwind ourselves after a day of work, not to mention that the hospitality of the servers were great too. On top of that, this restaurant is kids friendly thus suitable for family gathering and meals.
