Their newest addition, Saveur Art, is located at level 4 of Ion Orchard - smack right in the middle of town. Upping their game this time, the menu seemingly feels a bit more first-rate, yet reasonably priced. With posh ingredients such as (freshly shaved) black truffle and wild game, the menu definitely feels a notch higher, as compared to their other restaurants.
For starters, the Egg Confit and Truffle was truly remarkable. We enjoyed every single bit of the truffled potato mousseline, packed with the texture and crunch from the macadamia nuts, with a lavish amount of freshly shaved black truffle atop.
A must-try in our opinion would be the Slow-Cooked Cod in Olive, which was fresh, came perfectly cooked, and moist within. Alongside baby squids, artichokes and paprika foam, we definitely enjoyed the flavours that complimented each other. Another well-prepared dish was the Asian Spiced Braised Short Ribs which was fork-tender and well seasoned, with fresh greens surrounding the very visually appealing dish.
We were pretty spoilt for choice after tasting all their desserts, but if we really had to choose which to recommend, the Chocolate and Pistachio wins hands down with a dark chocolate fondant, paired with an in-house pistachio ice cream - it felt a bit like heaven on earth. We were also fond of the Tropical -a passionfruit sorbet served with mango curd, roasted pineapples and coconut sable.
Also worth a mention is the dealcoholized wine Saveur Art has to offer, which we think is perfect for lunch dates, or if you need to be behind the wheel. We liked how each plate had a lot of appeal visually, and was faultlessly executed. It is after all Saveur we are talking about, and through the years they have honestly offered nothing else but fine and pocket-friendly French cuisine.
