Be warned and be fully prepared, and, by no means, come to Saveur while you are already starving and in no mood to wait in a length line. Saveur's current dining hours are almost blink-and-you-will-miss-them: from 6pm to 9:30pm. The queue outside starts growing long before the place opens, so expect to wait in line for about an hour, if not more.With that being said, the French food and the value that you will get for your money are almsot unbeatable in Singapore. S$8.90 for an entree of duck co
With that being said, the French food and the value that you will get for your money are almsot unbeatable in Singapore. S$8.90 for an entree of duck confit and mashed potatoes? I personally have not seen any decent duck confit concoction sold for under S$15, and I've searched far and wide across the city to find a good duck confit deal. An appetizer of fois gras (30oz) will cost you about $7.90. The portion is tiny and it will quickly make you realize that there is no such thing as amazing value for fois gras, but you will be more than satisfied with the succulent tenderness and a hint of outside sweetness as soon as you take your first bite.The salmon confit at S$8.90 is a true star among the appetizers, as it is tender to perfection, without any of the pesky fishy smell. A green apple side salad served as part of this appetizer is a wise addition as it distills the slight saltiness of the confit with its sweet-and-sour kick.My hope is that, with time, Saveur's dinner hours will extend to a longer period of time than just 3.5 hours and the waiting time will diminish exponentially. For now, be prepared to come on a full stomach and bring a book to read in line. You're in for a loooong wait!
