Affordable french restaurant

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!

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.

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.
