Wholly concur with the chef’s recommendation! The tiger prawn capellini ($28++) features angel hair pasta tossed in lobster oil with fresh chilli. The charred spring onions really elevated its aroma! Would have liked the prawns to have a stronger grilled smokiness, but they were sweet and succulent. Dining at Dusk was certainly an experience, especially with the great views and excellent service!

The duck confit ($33++) won us over with its crispy skin and flavourful fat. The portion is a little small, but it packs a punch especially with the balsamic glaze! Paired our dishes with wines from Argentina and Australia, which our server recommended.

Expected more from the tomato swimmer crab linguine ($18+) - whilst the portion of crab was generous, I found the sauce rather one dimensional. Would have loved for the white wine and garlic to be more prominent! Also, it wasn’t spicy at all, despite the inclusion of chilli slices.

The signature chilli crab pasta ($16.90) features a plethora of seafood - squid, clams, prawns and blue swimmer crab. The portion was great but it could have been fresher! The sauce is starchy and sweet, but lacks spiciness.

The premium truffle breakfast pasta ($16.90) wasn’t quite as premium as it’s name suggests - the sauce is reminiscent of a Campbell mushroom soup, and the processed food was a touch overcooked.

As part of the burpple beyond set ($32++), we had the Latino pasta. The tomato sauce is earthy and a tad sweet, vastly distinct from the typical Italian sauces. It was really interesting! Could do with more crab meat and a larger portion, since this plate is meant to be shared amongst 2.

Took a gamble with the risotto di caprese ($16.90) - might be that we picked the wrong combination but I’d be sticking to their pastas the next time! The rice had sufficient bite, but the pesto sauce was more cream than basil. The buffalo mozzarella was also strangely chewy.

The garden city linguine (16++) came as part of the family set which you can order on FFT’s oddle page. This was surprisingly delightful - a medley of roasted vegetables tossed in a tangy tomato sauce. It was a definite crowd favourite!

Ordered this prawn aglio oglio as part of burpple beyond’s set ($20+ for 2 mains & 2 drinks)! The pasta could afford a spicier kick, but it is fragrant with garlic and a tinge of white wine. The prawns were a letdown - clearly frozen, and neither firm nor succulent.

Eleven Strands has won me over 😭 it has been on my list of places to try for the longest time, and I’m happy to say that it surpassed my high expectations! Ordered their crab meat pasta in red sauce ($25+). Would have liked the sauce to be a little creamier, but it is tangy with a nice hint of spiciness. The crab meat is broken up into smaller pieces and mixed in! The tomatoes and spinach lent dimension to its flavour and texture. Opted for their handmade tagliatelle (+$3) and it is worth every cent - the pasta had a great bite, and it’s thicker width paired well with the sauce!

Nassim Hill does a decent rendition of the chilli crab pasta ($25++), our local favourite! Their sauce is more starchy than most other places, but packs a fiery punch. Spaghetti was al dente and the portion of crab generous.

The sakura ebiko capellini (20+) features al dente pasta tossed in chilli oil, with a faint briny taste. The bonito flakes overwhelmed the ebiko, but this was still delicious!
