If you are searching for a restaurant and bar to experience some of the best hilltop views in Singapore, look no further.
Dusk Restaurant & Bar by One Faber Group located 100-metres about sea level, provides al fresco dining with a panoramic views of HarbourFront and Sentosa Island. Check it out.
Getting here wasn’t too difficult – you can always cab or GRAB up, or even take a cable car from Harbourfront or Sentosa.
When was the last time you experienced the views from the cable car or sat on one before?
Somehow when you get up and seated down, there is this calming effect watching the cable cars go to and fro, along with the natural scent of the green rainforest.
The recommended time to visit is when the sun sets, during the magic hour when the skies turn to a different hue. So, so beautiful.
I must say this hilltop restaurant is good for a casual yet romantic nights out, or after-work gathering with colleagues and friends over sharing platters, tapas and drinks. An added bonus is the beautiful views that can be seen from here.
As for the food conceptualised by Executive Chef Kenny Yeo and team, there is a wide range from Main Courses with a touch of Asian, European Tapas, Sharing Platters, Snacks, and Desserts.
You can also expect a Brunch Menu of Eggs Benedict ($17), The Breakfast Plate ($21) and Swiss Rosti ($22) on Sundays.
Here are some of the recommended favourites from Dusk Restaurant & Bar:
Tiger Prawn Capellini ($28++)
Our table’s favourite dish. This contains angel hair pasta served with juicy tiger prawns, tossed in fragrant lobster-infused oil and Japanese seaweed.
The pasta was pleasantly al dente and springy, and lightly aromatic with that intricate seafood flavour.
The other pasta dish you can order is the Spicy Spaghetti Amatriciana ($19++) with crispy bacon and shaved Parmigiano.
Côte de Boeuf ($98++)
In French cuisine, the Côte de Boeuf is a bone-in rib steak, considered a more flavourful cut and marbling which makes it suitable for grilling.
Over at Dusk, the Côte de Boeuf is a 700g bone-in Prime Rib suitable for 2 to 3, first cooked using the sous-vide method, followed by grilling just before serving to enhance the flavour and presentation.
The huge slab is served with roasted marble potatoes, buttered garden vegetables and red wine sauce.
A popular choice for groups, I would recommend getting a medium rare for better succulence and tenderness.
Citrus Fremantle Octopus Tapas ($25++)
There are 12 tapas dishes available at Dusk, ranging from Jamon Iberico & Cheese on Sourdough ($12), Chorizo with Marble Potatoes ($14), Forest Mushrooms with Sherry ($14), Beef Cheek with Port Wine Demi Glaze ($19) and Parma Caesar Salad ($18).
The octopuses are sourced from the famous Western Australia Fremantle market, cooked sous-vide style to 80% done to retain its succulence.
The seasoning is kept uncomplicated, with simple drizzling of citrus oil so that diners can savour the natural freshness and sweetness.
Foie Gras au Gratin ($20++)
Flame-seared duck foie gras served on baguette slices and topped with truffle balsamic pearls. A good contrast of buttery melt-in-the-mouth foie gras on crunchy bread.
Beef Meatballs in Cherry Tomato Sauce ($16++)
Homemade meatballs in a rich cherry tomato sauce. I thought that the marinara sauce was slightly on the heavy side, so this could be suitable to pair with some drinks.
Flambé Grand Marnier Tiger Prawns ($25++)
Sautéed tiger prawns topped with Grand Marnier sauce served with mesclun mix.
The prawns were crispy and succulent, and you get a touch of that citrusy and alcoholic element that may need some getting used to.
Ricotta Cheese Cake ($14++)
Rich Ricotta cake served with Chantilly cream and fresh wild berries.
A creamy and not too rich cheesecake which has berries included to help balance out the sweetness. Interesting, there is a crispy ‘crown’ on top for that added crunch in the dessert.
Flambé Baked Alaska ($16++)
An attractive Neapolitan style Baked Alaksa with strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla ice cream as its centre, surrounded by rich chocolate cake and topped with meringue.
Flambéd for the perfect finish.
Dusk Restaurant & Bar also offers a variety of wines selected based on three criteria: exclusivity, quality and affordability.
Wines by the glass start from $13 for a red; $13 for white; and $12 for sparkling wines. Also available by bottles, from $69 for red; $69 for white; and $78 for sparkling wines.
Nitro-Frost Caviar Martini ($16++)
The cocktail menu features a Nitro-frosting technique which injects nitrogen into the cocktail through an aerator. Other than an ‘instagrammable’ effect, practically the drink stays chilled for a longer period of time.
I would recommend the refreshing and fruity Nitro-Frost Caviar Martini, which comes topped with fruit caviar. Flavours include original, lychee and passionfruit.
Dusk Till Dawn ($16++)
The Dusk signature cocktail, presented in an inverted lightbulb, containing a combination of Gin, Vodka, Rum, Tequila, Blue Curacao Lemon juice, Peach syrup topped with tangy cranberry juice.
For romantic dates, friends’ night out or birthday celebrations, Dusk Restaurant & Bar is divided into an alfresco-dining garden section, a sheltered dining area, and bar for drinks. You can pick your favourite section.
Also look out for credit card promotions with UOB and Mastercard for a further sweet 10% OFF the total bill with $80 spend.
