Saveur. Many people have been talking about it but only a few have tried it. My cousin queued all the way till closing time and still could not get a seat. After hearing all these great things of the restaurant, I just had to try this place at Purvis Street.
Mum and I started queuing for dinner half an hour before the restaurant opened (at six). We were not the first in the queue and by 5.45pm, the queue stretched past neighboring stores.
We placed our orders immediately after seating down. The food came relatively quickly for a place packed to its rafters.
The beef was not as great as expected. Mum and I ordered the same thing with high hopes of a juicy, medium done steak. But the beef was dry and the taste of the alcohol (sherry?) used to marinate the beef was very strong.
The three of us has nothing but good things to say about the next dish. Potato in garlic cream sauce that came with the beef. It was fantastic! We just couldn’t have enough of it.
Foie gras next. A 35g portion for only $8. Where can you find prices like this?
The chocolate hazelnut mousse is probably the most unappetizing things I have ever seen. Do not let looks deceive you because this dessert is so decadent and sinful. The pomegranate seeds added a bit of zing to the mousse. It was ssoooooo good!
On the way, we got bubble tea to tide us through the long walk back to the train station. Both sis and I ordered Yakult green tea from I Love Taimei but there was hardly any Yakult taste. I do have to say that the tea had a very nice fragrance to it.
