From the people that brought you unembellished English steaks for 30 years, comes its sister outlet, Fosters - an english rose café and restaurant. While restaurants in Singapore come and go, the flagship genteel Fosters with its ode charm has evolved form the Tudor beams at 25 Amber Mansion of old Orchard to the cosy interiors of Specialist Shopping Centre to the elegant basement of Palais Renaissance.
She has since sprouted a new bloom at 277 Holland Avenue, site of the old A & W in Holland Village.
Fosters, a new english café and restaurant is more contemporary and boasts an al fresco dining area with a garden trellis and fountain.
The interior is cosy with a dining area marked by comfortable English wing chairs and a mock fireplace that looks out to the al fresco area.
In keeping with its name, a red rose oil painting adds focus to this English café and restaurant.
Bathed in warm lights and with sponged yellow walls and teak furniture, it offers an ideal rendezvous for a leisurely meal or a cup of afternoon tea.
Having been around since 1957, Fosters is famous for their hearty wholesome English fare and luxurious Devonshire Cream Tea.
In tandem with its move to hip and happening Holland Village, head chefs Peter and Ian have added new culinary creations to cater to the younger crowd.
But still in keeping with its two generations of loyal customers, Fosters continues to serve up its famous grilled English steaks of which their pride is Fillet Fantastique - prime fillet on a bed of fried onions crowned with black field mushrooms and market vegetables. The Carpetbag Steak is also an old favourite which keeps drawing its faithful customers back since 1957.
All the meats are airflown from New Zealand and served with potatoes and garden vegetables.
Of deserving mention are their oven-hot scones served with butter, homemade strawberry preserve, cream, banana walnut cake and finger sandwiches which make up their luxurious Devonshire Cream Tea Set at just $9.00+++ with a cup of coffee or tea.
Also on the menu are pancakes the way mum does it with lemon and sugar, steak and mushroom pies, bubble and squeak (vegetables and mashed potatoes patties) which are a great complement for an afternoon cup of tea.
The new Fosters ensures that its food remains traditionally English and retain their original flavour.
The new Fosters will cater to the likes of a younger crowd and will introduce after-dinner cocktails and beverages like "Leprechaun Moonshine", Fosters own coffee liqueur creation, to cater to the pub-crawlers who enjoy our al fresco dining area.
