Saveur : The Hundred-Foot Journey Menu

For foodies who know where to go for affordable yet palatable French food, Saveur should immediately ring a bell. Having been highlighted in the media time and again and best known for their pocket-friendly priced menu, Saveur will be offering an exquisite menu from 1 August 2014 to 14 September 2014 in line with the movie, The Hundred-Foot Journey. The elements of the menu features a fusion of Indian and French influence of flavours to create 3 different dishes, a soup, main and dessert.

For starters, they created a Seafood Bouillabaisse with aplenty of seafood such as sea bass, cod, mussel and clam. The soup is made from lobster and fish but had a very chalky texture which we personally didn't fancy. 

A choice of two mains, one can opt for the Lamb Shoulder braised and marinated in "curry de madras" served with coco bean cassoulet. Honestly, while there wasn't any curry going on in this dish, we did like how the lamb was tender with each bite and how the portion was generous.

For those who do not take lamb, the option to pick Saveur's most popular dish is also available. The Duck Confit with truffles mash (instead of normal mash) was simply divine. The skin was extremely crispy and the flavours of the whole dish complimented the house wine perfectly. 

The best part of the Hundred-Foot Journey Menu was probably dessert. The Tarte Au Citron (or you can also say deconstructed lemon tart) had so much colours and texture going on and was plated appealingly. The vanilla mousse toned down the acidity of the lemon curd and the tuile was thin and crisp. 

The Hundred-Foot Journey Menu is priced at SGD 36.90++. And if all that doesn't appeal, we still think their normal menu is worth every penny. The only downside is that the queue is said to be almost an hour long during peak hour. Bon Appétit.
