Good food at affordable prices

When Saveur opened its branch at Bugis (Purvis Street), I've heard all about its offering at very good food at very affordable prices. But the hour-long queues always prevented me from checking the place out, until the opening of its branch at Far East Plaza, which has a healthy amount of patrons but no queue. I have been back three times since.

We started with the Mushroom Soup (SGD$4.90) which comes in a frothy, cappuccino style and served in a cup. Rich in dark mushroomy flavor and hot in its serving, this tiny cup of soup is definitely an appetite whetting choice.

This Saveur's Pasta (SGD$4.90) is my favorite! Despite its simple ingredients of just chilli oil, finely-chopped kombu, minced pork sauce, chives and sakura ebi, the flavor is just fantastic. It explodes in the mouth in a mixture of spicy and saltiness, with very springy angel hair pasta. One would not believe this delicious pasta goes at this incredible price for sure.

The Chicken Roulade (SGD$9.90) is another fabulous dish here at Saveur's - tender chicken thigh stuffed with buttery rich foie gras infused chicken farce, creamy basmati rice and parmesan sauce. Flavors are aplenty for this dish, and the teeth is treated to a good textures dance as well.

Fine Dining Defined at Affordable Price

Saveur is a French restaurant in Singapore that is known for their affordability as well as their divine meals. As of January 2015, the Saveur group has already opened 4 restaurants and all of them are always packed with lots of people, including the Saveur branch at Far East Plaza.    On the night that my family and I visited the restaurant, we had to wait for approximately 1 hour before we could grab a table. I think that pretty much explains how crowded it was.  Entree  Salmon (X’mas & New Year Special) (S$5.90++) Loveable crisp and just enough saltiness   Foie Gras (S$9.90++) Fine dining defined. Perfect tenderness combined with a slightly fruity flavor.

Strong on the flavour

My opinions are biased and based on my taste buds. Unless you love strong flavours, this place is definitely not a place for you. The chocolate & hazelnut is like dense cream on plate. The first.few bites are ok but not a dish which you can eat alone. You have to sharw it with someone all else you will be sick.of.it soon enough.

Worst experience ever

My friend and I were there for lunch today (9 Oct) at about 2 pm. The place was not crowded, less than 1/3 of the tables were occupied. Service was slow and sluggish, and staff were not rude but not trained well (slamming glass of water on table etc). We had a foie gras starter, and two mains -- seabass and beef. The foie gras was quite good, but the mains were disappointing. While I do think the chef has very good technique, the ingredients were not fresh. The fish and beef were both tender, but there was that distinct "stale refrigerator smell". My favourite was the potato gratin that accompanied the beef.

A lady having lunch on her own at the table beside ours ordered a starter soup, starter foie gras and starter pasta. She was served the pasta first. When she asked about the soup, she was told "Oh the soup is on the way". Halfway through her pasta, the soup came. She was served pasta, soup and foie gras, in that order.

Overheard at another table of two young ladies who just finished their lunch, "The standard here has dropped".

When we were paying the bill, it was a lady in short hair who came to our table to handle it. She looked like a supervisor or manager of some sort. Her manner was brusque, which I have no problem with, BUT she knocked my friend's Gucci sunglasses from the table to the floor, and the lens popped out from the frame upon impact. She nonchalantly picked the pieces up from the floor and put it on the table. NOT A SINGLE WORD OF APOLOGY.

Regardless of the fact that it was an expensive item, no matter what you cause to drop and break from the table that belongs to someone else, even a simple "sorry" would be basic courtesy.

Also note that this place charges customers for plain water. When we pointed out that we were not told beforehand, she simply said "it is written in the front of the menu".

Very, very unimpressed. Never going back again.

Quality and inexpensive French cuisine

I prefer this outlet than the one at purvis street. The food was tastier than the outlet. The queue was worth the wait. I love the Sakura shrimp pasta, duck confit and pistachio panna cotta. It is a must order for every visit!
