When I was looking for a place for Christmas lunch with her, I wanted 1) Somewhere quiet, and 2) A place that did Lamb well.
I found both at Western Bar.

Disclaimer: This is a review of their Christmas Menu, which is totally different from their Regular Menu. The difference is the food we had that day isn't on the regular menu, and the price is double or triple of their regular menu. So I'm actually reviewing the chef's skill in this entry.

Western Bar was totally quiet on Christmas day... We were they only ones in the place for nearly an hour, until a group of youths came in.

Western Bar is rather secluded in Sembawang Hills, so I guess not many know about the place.

I heard that the Lamb here was pretty good, and on regular days, their food is very value-for-money due to the lower than average prices. The Christmas Rack Of Lamb didn't disappoint.

It was nicely crusted all round with herbs and breadcrumbs, which gave a nice texture to the medium-rare, juicy and tender meat within. The herbs gave the meat a nice infusion of flavour. The portion was quite large too. It was served with black pepper sauce, but honestly, it was good enough on it's own.

The Duck Confit was rather small though, but it was cooked to perfection. The meat wasn't tough, and the skin was crispy.

Service was average... Can't really comment because we were the only ones in the place.

I quite like the ambience and decor, the place looks like an actual bar you'll see in those old western movies.

Will come back on a regular day to try their lamb...


Update: Did come back on a regular day, and the food and service was great!

The staff just seem so happy all the time, and were friendly and polite. Now there's also a foosball (table soccer) table as well, to entertain kids, or those young-at-heart.

I like their White Truffle Mushroom Soup, it comes in a nice size portion, and there's actual wild mushrooms inside the soup.
