Glenn and I finally went to check out Saveur (sah-vere) at Purvis Street after hearing that they do French cuisine at affordable prices. We have yet to try French cuisine! There was already a snaking queue when we reached there. Despite being really hungry at 8pm, we decided to wait and see what is in store for us.We waited for quite some time before our orders came. Not forgetting that we were there on a Friday night, the restaurant was packed to its fullest even when it was nearing their closi
I was actually expecting tiger prawns and not DICED tiger prawn. But looking at the price, we would probably sound ingrate and cheapskate to complain. A mistake on my part for not reading the description of the dish on the menu carefully. Nevertheless, the tiger prawn and the caviar is a perfect match! I love how they complement each other so well. Angel Hair Pasta With Sherry Minced Pork And Sakura Ebi - $3.90 (4/5)
At first glance, the Sakura Ebi (hei bi look alike) looks disturbing, with the eyes looking back at you, but I am glad to inform you that its taste is nowhere near its looks.
From here on, our dinner experience started to go downhill when we realised that the staff had forgotten our orders. Crispy Pork Belly With 62.5 degree Egg With Diced Vegetable - $10.90 (3/5)
Glenn was thoroughly taken aback when the pork was served. I suspect that he is a Muslim. Or that the portion did not correspond to the price. Oh well, fine dining.
The best part of the pork belly is the crispy skin, but it wasn't very well done. Could be due to the rush to serve it to us, could be that it just wasn't nice. Half the skin was too hard, which made eating it difficult, and the other half was too soft, which got stuck onto my teeth. Other than that, there was something missing in the flavor of the pork belly. The poached egg was my favorite, though I did not like the lentils at all.
I thought the three put together were simply a mismatch.
Our Pistachio Panna Cotta never came and and all that's left were disappointment. No doubt that they were all smiles and ready to receive customers, but they failed to take care of the smallest details.
