Saveur is a place for French food for those on a budget. The queue on a Sunday afternoon was quite telling of how popular this place is. The restaurant is simple in layout. However, the acoustics of the space due to the narrow walls of the shophouse was a bit of a turn-off.
The portions are quite small, so we ordered a spread to share. Out of those that I have tried, I personally like the beef and the duck the most. The braised beef was tender and the essence of the red wine came through in the meat. The nutty taste of the rocket accompanied it well. Meanwhile the duck leg confit had the zesty taste of the orange infused natural jus.
The foie gras was a first for me, and the taste was almost similar to pig liver. The fatty duck liver melts in the mouth – truly an indulgence.
Overall, the food is nice and decent for its price. But if you are a big eater, the portions might not be enough for you so you might have to order more!
