Last month, I was invited to a food tasting event to Saveur!
I first got to know Saveur through a show that Bryan Wong hosted and brought my girls over for a birthday lunch. Even though it wasn’t my first time dinning at Saveur, I was thrilled about the event because I got to try out almost all the dishes available on the menu!
This place is a restaurant that sells quality, yet affordable french cuisine! Hence, I believe I should properly introduce this great venue!
We had our bread and butter served with unsalted butter before the start of our meals. There’s a choice of either soft or hard rolls to choose from the menu.
I didn’t order this but took a bite to see how it taste like. It is a pasta that is tossed with chilli oil with Japanese Kombu (seaweed) and Sakura ebi (dried shrimps). I would suggest this to be shared among your friends, as the portion served is huge enough to become a main dish.
Foie Gras – $9.90
Pan-seared duck liver served with apple-infused port wine and vanilla bean
There are two versions of this dish but I ordered the one with port wine. This dish is a little on the sour side because of the apple-infused port wine, but it is an excellent pairing with the crunchy apple slices added.
Duck Salad – $5.90
Loved this dish! The duck confit, orange segments, quail egg and cherry tomatoes mix really well together. Personally I hate the taste of raw vegetables, but this is just right because of their homemade lemon vinaigrette.
Duck Leg Confit – $10.90
The first time I went to Saveur, I tried one of their popular mains – Duck Leg Confit. Tender meat paired with orange slices and sauteed Shitake mushroom instantly made this dish my favourite. But the second time I visited Saveur, this duck leg confit is a little salty.
Pork Belly – $10.90
If you are a friend of pork belly and soft boil eggs, you’ve got to order this to try. I ordered this during my second visit to Saveur. The pork belly skin is crispy and the meat is tender and juicy. I don’t like soft boil eggs but it pairs well with the green lentils.
Pistachio Panna Cotta – $6.90
I would recommend this to people who dislike sweet desserts!
Texture of Citrus – $6.90
This dish kept us guessing with the different kinds of citrus used! Blood orange jelly (red ones in this picture) served with orange granité, freeze-dried pineapple, feuilletine, citrus segments, and lime zests.
Chocolate & Hazelnut – $7.90
Every chocolate lover should love this as it is chocolate mousse with crushed hazelnuts, broken raspberries, roasted rice puffs, chocolate tuile & praline. However I find it a little sweet and I feel “jerlat” (sick) after eating a few spoonful of it.
