Had to drop by Orchard for some last minute shopping for gift, was already pretty late by the time we settled down for dinner. Decided to eat at Saveur Art for convenience since we were in ION.
One of us had the Set Dinner while another ordered ala carte. Entrees from the set include Salad of haricot verts, chevre blanc and Egg Confit truffled potato mousseline, macadamia nuts, brown butter. I didn’t appreciate the salad cos of the cheese used but the egg confit was pretty nice.
Main we opted for Butter-poached lobster lobster ravioli, tarragon, poached leek, oyster beurre blanc sauce. Lobster was chewy but the sauce was too rich for my liking.
Ending with dessert Poached Pear pain perdu, vanilla pastry cream, coffee. Nice but once again didn’t really impress me much.
From the ala carte, we tried the safe bet of Saveur’s Pasta chorizo, grilled prawn, chopped kombu, chilli oil. Oddly though I enjoyed this dish more at their other 2 outlets than the version served here. I think this version has additional or larger chunks of bacon bits? It certainly had more ingredients than the ones I’ve had before but were more satisfying than this one.
Crispy duck leg confit was not available so we ended up with Grilled Pork Belly provencal artichoke barigoule. The meat was soft and tender with good portions of fat to meat ratio. But again I didn’t liked the sauce…
Overall I left the place wondering why the food seemed too different from the other two eateries. Perhaps the dishes in the menu were too uncommon?
