DUSK Restaurant & Bar @ Mount Faber!

(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.”

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.

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.

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!
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!
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!

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

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.

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.
Its opened till as late as 2am on Fri, Sat & Public Holiday.
Pretty good to have a chill-out session with your pals there.

    2018 KIA Sorento GT Line [Car Review]

    New Design and in-car technologies for the
    Upgraded 2018 KIA Sorento 7-seater SUV


    - Revised exterior and interior design for the spacious seven-seat SUV
    - Addition of new sport-inspired GT Line variant to Sorento range
    - New eight-speed automatic transmission improves driveability and lowers emissions
    - Upgraded 2018 Kia Sorento on-sale from November 2017

    Singapore, 24 November 2017 – Kia Motors has announced a range of upgrades to the Sorento, the company’s seven-seat flagship SUV, which will feature a refreshed exterior and interior design. The Sorento is also available as a new GT Line variant, with both models featuring Kia’s latest safety and in-car connectivity technologies.
    Mr Alvyn Ang, Director of Kia Operations - Cycle & Carriage Singapore, commented that, “The current model has a broad appeal among buyers, with a combination of high practicality of a MPV and handsome design of a SUV. Upgrades to the car’s exterior and interior design, safety, and in-car technology all add to the appeal of the car and will ensure sales remain strong.”

    Design: updated exterior and interior design
    Kia’s designers have made a series of modifications to the Sorento’s exterior design. These include revised front and rear bumpers, new LED head- and tail-lamps, and a new dark metallic finish to the ‘tiger-nose’ grille. The result is a more sophisticated and purposeful front-end appearance. New Rich Espresso and Gravity Blue exterior paint finishes are now available, as well as a new design for the Sorento’s 18-inch (SX) and 19-inch (GT Line) aluminium alloy wheels.

    The new Sorento features an increased proportion of soft touch materials and leather for a more premium cabin ambience including a newly-designed steering wheel and driver instrument cluster display. The driver and front passenger seats are equipped with four-way and two-way adjustable lumbar support respectively, to enhance seating comfort.

    Powertrain: lower emissions from new eight-speed automatic transmission
    The new Sorento is the first SUV from Kia available with the company’s new eight-speed automatic transmission. The transmission boasts 143 newly-patented technologies and delivers a slick-shifting, more decisive drive, while reducing emissions slightly.
    Compared to other automatic transmissions, Kia’s new eight-speed unit requires fewer control valves, enabling a more direct mechanical link to the engine. This allows the transmission to shift more quickly than the outgoing six-speed automatic transmission. The greater choice of gears enables more decisive acceleration, while reducing CO2 emissions from 174 to 159 g/km.

    The new transmission offers four different drive modes: Eco, Comfort, Sport and Smart. Drivers can select their preferred mode with the Sorento’s electronic Drive Mode Select system. Each mode enables the driver to customise the powertrain’s responses to driver’s inputs, enhancing fuel economy or acceleration characteristics depending on driver’s preferences. The Drive Mode Select also adapts the weight of the rack-mounted power steering system, for more relaxed or more immediate, engaging steering responses. The new Smart Mode is designed to understand and anticipate the driver’s steering preferences, automatically switching between Eco, Comfort and Sport modes. This enables the Sorento to adapt to the driver’s steering behaviour as road conditions change, pre-empting the driver’s preference for different speeds and driving environments.
    Smart Technology: The Future of Kia
    Kia has equipped the new 2018 Sorento SX and GT Line with various advanced smart features like Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS)- with parallel and perpendicular parking support and a keyless entry system. Both models also come standard with Kia’s 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay connectivity.

    Introducing the GT Line: new sport-inspired Sorento GT Line model
    Kia has introduced a new GT Line variant to the Sorento, further enhancing its sporty appeal. Inspired by the appearance of Kia’s higher-performance GT models, the Sorento GT Line features a range of upgrades for added style and on-road presence. The exterior features four-lamp LED fog lights, red brake calipers, a more prominent sill step, and subtle GT Line badging designed to distinguish it from other Sorento models. In addition, the new GT Line variant features unique gear shift paddles, Dynamax All-Wheel Drive (AWD) for added stability, a passenger seat Work-In system, and a series of satin chrome highlights throughout the interior.


    The interior of the GT Line includes improvements in both functionality and design - featuring quilted seats, finished in black leather with contrasting grey stitching and GT Line embroidered emblems.

    On-sale from November 2017
    Backed by Cycle & Carriage’s industry leading standards, the upgraded 2018 Kia Sorento is sold as standard with 10-year engine warranty and 5-year unlimited mileage warranty. The 2018 Kia Sorento will be on sale from 25 November onwards.

    The latest Sorento GT Line is indeed very good looking with the curvy clean lines it has..

    The 19" alloy rims are nice too.. with the red brake calipers.

    The intelligent Dynamax AWD All-Wheel Drive (AWD) adds stability when rounding corners, and eliminates unintended over- and under-steer.

    The interior looks pretty clean and nice too.. not too much of the buttons to make you confuse.

    And the rear passengers leg space is spacious.

    With air-con vents for the rear passengers and as you can see.. there are two buttons for driver or anybody at the rear to help the front passenger adjust the seat. This makes it very convenient if your front passenger is unable to adjust the seat himself or herself.. be it he or she is a handicapped or busy with sth.

    As I hold on to the steering wheel.. I feel that the grip of the wheel was very good.. test-drive it and you'll know it.

    Controls at the top to open the panoramic sunroof.. and there's a sunglasses holder above as well.
    The rear mirror sport an anti-glaring function so that the lights from the cars at the rear wouldn't be too glaring to the eyes at night.

    You can just open the visor of the sunroof.. so as to let more light coming in.

    Or just open half of the sunroof..

    The last row for the rear passengers is pretty spacious too!

    Smart power tailgate with memory function.
    The tailgate opens when the smart key is detected nearby. With its memory function, your favourite opening angles can be stored.

    I feel that the Sorento GT Line is a great 7-seater SUV which has many features and it feels solid. The drive was very smooth and going on a diesel engine.. it doesn't feel laggy at all.

    Get your hands on for a test-drive at the KIA Showroom located at 

    239 Alexandra Road, Singapore 159930.
