DUSK Restaurant & Bar @ Mount Faber!


INTRODUCING THE ALL-NEW DUSK RESTAURANT & BAR
(Re)Discover an All-Time High Hilltop Dining Experience at Faber Peak Singapore, 100-Metres above Sea Level


Singapore, 8 December 2017 – For the best sunset on a hilltop, European tapas and specially curated wines and cocktails, visit Dusk Restaurant & Bar, the latest dining concept by One Faber Group, when it opens for business from 7 December.

Located 100-metres above sea level at Faber Peak Singapore and surrounded by lush rainforest, guests can experience splendid sunsets at the hilltop restaurant, while savouring European tapas created by Executive Chef Kenny Yeo, who possesses over 30 years of French culinary skills.

Guests get to chill at a place like no other in Dusk Restaurant & Bar, where its alfresco setting provides an atmosphere perfect for conviviality. This quality is enhanced through various touch points in the restaurant, from the tastefully appointed interior to the tantalising menu and wine list, all tailored for communal dining.

“Dusk Restaurant and Bar caters to the PMEB (Professionals, Managers, Executives and Businessmen) segment who seeks new experiences that can be shared with friends and loved ones. We are confident that our unique location, coupled with a menu and wine list, will put Faber Peak on the map as a one-of-its-kind, must-visit dining destination in Singapore,” said Jessie Tan, Director, Business Operations, One Faber Group.

“One Faber Group’s brand tagline ‘One Escapade, Countless Experiences’ is further reinforced with Dusk joining our suite of offerings. It brings a new option for the local community to reconnect with Mount Faber, a familiar place where they can (re)create new memories and experiences.”
 

 
ON THE DESIGN
 
Perched on top of Faber Peak, Dusk Restaurant & Bar offers patrons a vantage point for panoramic views of Harbourfront and Sentosa Island. As night falls, patrons can look forward to the sunset in its breath-taking hues of vermillion and violet against nature’s lush green rainforest.
 
The restaurant is divided into an alfresco-dining garden section, which seats 40 persons, while the sheltered section seats 80. A 9.6 metre bar near the entrance overlooks the entire restaurant, where a gallery of custom-made dining tables, plush sofa seats and intimate spaces beckon with the anticipation of cosy comfort.
 
Design accents include a generous use of wood surfaces that blend the restaurant with its natural environs, while neon art pieces and an embellished floor art punctuate the monochromatic palette to add visual variety and contrast.
 
Just a 15-minute drive from the city centre, Dusk Restaurant & Bar is a spacious 400 square metre area where urbanites can escape into nature for a wine and dine experience, and end their evening on an all-time high.

 
ON THE MENU
 
The menu has been created entirely by Executive Chef Kenny Yeo, a master chef who is trained in French culinary skills for over 30 years. There are 36 items on the menu which distinguishes itself with European tapas featuring all-time favourites from Spain, Italy, France and Germany. Having honed his skills at Le Centenaire, a Michelin 3-Star Hotel in France, as well as the French kitchen of JQ Concepts Pte Ltd in Taipei, Chef Kenny Yeo gets to wield his culinary repertoire in different forms of European cuisines and serve them all under one roof at Dusk.

Like an artist putting final touches to his work, Chef Kenny has added twists to some of his creations.

“Communal dining is about creating shared experiences and memories through food that people can relate to and enjoy. While most of my dishes are European in origin, I have incorporated Asian ingredients into some of my creations to offer something unexpected, yet familiar, to pique the palate of our local audience,” said Executive Chef Kenny Yeo.

These Asian-inspired dishes include the Tiger Prawn Capellini tossed in lobster infused oil and Japanese seaweed, and Premium Sea Scallops with Ikura.

The menu is designed for sharing, so patrons are encouraged to explore and order a variety of dishes. The menu selection comprises 12 Tapas, 9 entrees, 4 snacks, 3 sharing platters and 3 desserts; there is also a Sunday brunch menu with 3 choices for adults and 2 for children. Prices start at $10 for tapas and $19 for entrées.
 
 
ABOUT THE BAR

Dusk Restaurant & Bar offers a variety of wines selected based on three criteria: exclusivity, quality and affordability. Whether an aficionado or a novice, adventurous wine lovers can look forward to Dusk as a new hangout in Singapore.

Request for the sommelier to recommend suitable wines to pair with your dishes, or pick from the wine list designed to complement the menu; Dusk wants to make wine drinking more accessible by helping patrons navigate a world of wines effortlessly.

Wines by the glass are priced $13 to $18 for red; $13 to $18 for white; and $12 to $22 for sparkling wines. Also available by bottles from $69 for red; $69 for white; and $78 for sparkling wines.

The cocktail menu features the Nitro-frosting technique that is becoming a trend in leading bars in Singapore and around the world. It injects nitrogen into the cocktail through an aerator, and causes the concoction to stay chilled for longer periods of time compared to conventional methods of preparation.

This technique is applied purely for the benefit of the customers, as it ensures that they enjoy the cocktails in the best serving conditions despite the ambient heat.

Dusk Restaurant & Bar offers 12 cocktail concoctions for $15 to $16 each.
 
 
 
The cocktail I had was this DUSK TILL DAWN (S$16++)
Its a signature Dusk cocktail for all occasions.
Gin, Vodka, Rum, Tequila, Blue Caracao, Lemon juice, Peach syrup topped with Cranberry juice
 
Its like a Welcome Drink for me and my partner and it tasted really Great!
 
 
 
CITRUS FREMANTLE OCTOPUS (S$15+)
Chef Kenny cooks fresh octopus sous-vide style to 80% done in order to retain its succulence and flavour. Served drizzled with citrus oil with vine baby Pomodoro tomatoes and arugula. The octopuses are sourced from Western Australia’s famous Fremantle markets.
 
A hallmark of fine French cooking, Sous-vide is a laborious, time-consuming cooking process that produces meats with exceptional flavour.
 
I really like this dish.. the fresh octopus was cooked to the right level of tenderness, retaining the chewy-ness of the meat. Pairing it with the Pomodoro tomato and arugula vegetables was really a good choice!
 
 
 
FOIE GRAS AU GRATIN (S$20++)
Marinated overnight in sweet desert wine, the duck Foie Gras is then flame-seared and served on crunchy baguette slices, topped with truffle balsamic pearls.
 
This is probably the BEST Foie Gras I ever tried!
It has a nice taste of butter somehow.. and matching it with a toasted baguette slice.. its like so heavenly nice! A must try dish when you are there!
 
 

 
FOREST MUSHROOMS WITH SHERRY (S$14++)
Sautéed to perfection under controlled fire and precise timing, the rich Sherry wine cream sauce leaves a sweet aftertaste that brings a pleasant surprise for a mushroom dish.

This simple yet flavoursome dish is a testament to Chef Kenny’s years of experience and mastery in making basic dishes taste divine.
 
The taste of this was just right.. its not heavy and I can finish entirely on my own. :P
 
 


TIGER PRAWN CAPELLINI (S$28++)
Chef Kenny tosses the angel hair pasta in aromatic lobster-infused oil and Japanese seaweed to heighten the seafood flavours. Served with juicy giant tiger prawns sautéed Italian-style.

The tiger prawns served were very fresh and the angel hair pasta is something which I find it pretty unique.. as I seldom try it at other restaurants elsewhere.

 


COTE DE BOEUF (S$98++), serves two
A dedication to the true beef lovers, Chef Kenny uses only the best 700g Prime Rib (bone-in) cooked to perfection using sous-vide method, followed by grilling just before serving to enhance the flavour and presentation. Served with roasted marble potatoes, buttered garden vegetables and red wine sauce.

For a 700g Prime Rib.. you're able to get it at S$98++, its a pretty good price.
This was cooked to Medium Rare and the tenderness of it was perfect!
My partner seldom take a lot of beef, but that day she was able to take more than what she usually does. She commented that the beef was really soft and nice. I personally like the tenderness of it and the pairing of it with the roasted marble potatoes and buttered garden vegetables.




FLAMBE BAKED ALASKA (S$16++)
Rich chocolate cake and ice-cream topped with meringue and flambéd for the perfect finish

I like how the way the ice-cream was paired with the chocolate cake. It tasted very well when they were both eaten at the same time, and with the topping of the meringue and flambéd it just make everything so perfect!




Both of us truly enjoyed the dinner with a great scenery and after that we adjourned to take a cable car ride off to HarbourFront Centre and ended our night with bliss.

You can also plan a dinner this way and enjoy a cable car ride after the dinner by purchasing the cable car tickets at the Level 1 Ticketing Counter.

 

Here are the Opening Hours of the Dusk Restaurant & Bar.
