Located on the ground floor of Far East Plaza, is Saveur. It is right next to the Nasi Lemak stall.
To sustain their affordable prices, they have jam packed the dining area, so it can get quite loud, which ended up with me getting a migraine and feeling light headed, as it was very stuffy as well.
Make a reservation if you don't want to wait at least 30 minutes for a table.
At each table, you will find a order chit with a pen, you can tick what you plan to order and the waitress will come around and confirm your order.
It's always refreshing to see a bible verse on the first page of the menu :)
1. Mushroom Soup $4.90++
Served like a drink, it was very creamy and authentic, definitely not straight out of a can!
2. Pasta $4.90++
I really liked the pasta, it was al dente, even though there was supposedly chilli oil, I couldn't taste any spiciness. The crispy little shrimps added a crunch in every bite! Highly recommended!
3. Confit of Duck $13.90 ++
The mash was like a fluffy pillow of potato! Any baby would happily lick this plate clean of the mash! It was deliciously tasty! The duck meat was also, very tender and it pretty much fell off the bone! The skin of the duck was very crispy and slightly oily. The sauteed mushrooms was juicy and they really didn't give us enough of these perfectly cooked mushrooms!
4. Chicken Roulade $10.90++
This was slightly too cheesy for my liking, but the chicken tasted okay. I wasn't a fan of this dish though.
As the restaurant was very busy on a friday night, it took forever to get service. Everytime we needed either the order taken or the bill, it took forever. So please bring some patience and a very low level of service expectation and you will have a great meal :) The food is good and it is gentle on your POSB account!
