Saveur – the name synonymous with affordable French cuisine. From a coffee shop at Katong, Saveur has upgraded itself to a restaurant shop space at Far East Plaza – while still staying true to its motto of affordable French cuisine.

Saveur's Pasta

Saveur’s Pasta

Saveur’s Pasta was a simple, rustic pasta tossed with chili oil, fine-chopped Japanese konbu and sakura ebi with minced pork sauce. It was almost like an aglio olio, minus the garlic. There was a generous serving of sakura ebi, but not a lot of minced pork. In fact, there wasn’t much sauce. It was more of the chili oil which resulted in a smooth and moist pasta.

Chocolate and Hazelnut

Chocolate and Hazelnut

The Chocolate and Hazelnut consisted of chocolate mousse with crushed hazelnuts, broken raspberries, roasted rice puffs, chocolate tuile and praline. The Chocolate and Hazelnut was a plethora of textures. The crunch from the hazelnuts, juicy texture from the raspberries and the crispiness from the tuile, all found within the soft and melts-in-your mouth mousse. Though not exactly looking the prettiest, the Chocolate and Hazelnut was still pretty decent. The chocolate mousse wasn’t exactly of premium quality, but still chocolately satisfying with that burst of sourness from the raspberries. In all, the Chocolate and Hazelnut was like a deconstructed ferrero rocher.
