Saveur

My colleagues and I agreed to have dinner together today after work and Serene, whom I have nicknamed "Living Food Directory", brought us to Saveur.


Saveur is the brainchild of two enterprising Lasalle graduates. Saveur's moto is "bringing you a culinary experience in our own modern interpretation" and they did.


This is their menu. It's simple and pleasing to the eye.


Printing announcements on table mat is an ingenious way of advertising.


Good stainless-steel cutleries are used.

We decided to start off with a few starters.


This Saveur Pasta is hugely recommended by a sales representative. The pasta is done aglio olio style but it is a little dry. Shrimps are added, making the dish very pleasing to the eye. I thought it was alright but my colleagues loved it so much they ordered a second serving.


Foie Gras with Creamy Lentils and Pickled Pearl Onion is recommended by the same sales representative and it was delicious. The foie gras is very very tender although the outside is cooked. Creamy Lentils and Pickled Pearl Onion went very well with foie gras.


We liked the Foie Gras with Creamy Lentils and Pickled Pearl Onion so much we decided to try the other version, Foie Gras with Apple & Raisin Infused with Port Wine & Vanilla Bean. The port wine is too strong and it overpowdered the foie gras. Foie Gras with Creamy Lentils and Pickled Pearl Onion is still the better of the two.


We all had Duck Confit for our main course, which is hugely recommended by Serene. I quote her "they have the best duck confit" but I beg to differ. The shiitake mushrooms are very well done, but I feel that the duck is too dry, there is not enough fats. I like the duck confit at The French Table better.

  
For dessert, we had Cookies and Milk. The ice-cream is hidden under the layer of milk foam. It is innovative but a little queer to the eye.


I ordered this Salted Caramel Lava Cake from the Special Menu and I am so glad I did. 


This is one level up from the regular chocolate lava cake. Just look at the salted caramel oozing out. The taste is the perfect combination of sweetness of caramel and saltiness of salt. This shall be my favourite dessert from now on.

This is another casual French restaurant where the prices will not burn a hole in your wallet and the food are decent. Salted Caramel Lava Cake is to die for!

Mikoto Singapore

Stella has been raving about Mikoto Singapore ever since she ate there. She brought her boyfriend and a few other friends there and they were all full of praises. Is it really that good? I started to wonder. I jumped at the chance when Stella invited me to have dinner with her boyfriend and her at Mikoto Singapore.


I started off with Red Plum Liquor. You can't really taste the alcohol probably because the alcohol content is lower, but the taste of red plum is refreshing.

This is Nitsuke. It looked so good on the menu, but it was a little disappointing. The only noteworthy thing is the sauce.

This is Chicken Nanban. The chicken pieces are perfectly deep-fried. Tartar sauce is made with Japanese pickled eggplants called shibazuke which gives it the pick colour. This is definitely the highlight of the meal!

This is Vegetable Stick with Anchovy Sauce. The raw vegetables are very fresh and they go very well with the slightly-salty anchovy sauce.

This is Ham Cheese Katsu and it is only …

I Am Cafe

Mariem wanted to meet for dinner and she suggested this I Am Cafe that I have not heard of before.



Located at Haji Lane, this cafe  swaps air-conditioning for casualness and down-to-earth prices. It is not certified halal, but it is owned by three Muslim brothers.


The waitress recommended Cheezy Bombs and it was really delicious. Deep-fried chicken meatball with melted cheese, they explode in your mouth and will burn your mouth if you are not careful. 

I ordered Charcoal-Grilled Juicy Beef Burger. The beef patty if very juicy but a little under-seasoned, the addition of the pineapple gives the burger a totally different experience. However, it would be great if the beef patty can be made into two thinner ones, so that the burger can be eaten in halves, most girls don't have such a big mouth.

Mariem had Fish 'N' Chips. I had a few bites and it was alright, but I can still taste the taste of the fish, which should not be the case in a good Fish 'N' Chips.
For drinks,…

Awfully Chocolate

I have a sweet tooth, but I am not a big fan of chocolates because I find them too sweet.

However, if I ever have craving for chocolate cake, THE place I will go to is Awfully Chocolate.

I can't remember who introduced me to Awfully Chocolate, but I have been hooked ever since.




The Salted Butterscotch Brownie is really good. You can taste the butterscotch in every bite, but it is a little too sweet for me.
The Super Stacked Chocolate Cake is the one for me. It is super chocolatey, yet it is not overly sweet. It is the most popular item for a reason.
The White Choclate Creme Brulee Tart is too sweet, but otherwise delicious. 
Don't take my word for it - go and try them for yourself! I promise that you will not regret it.
