Food Haunts : Saveur & 黑丸嫩仙草

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

I had a little meetup with my two favouritest sisters about a week back.

What I wore that day

Glad suggested we have Saveur for some affordable French cuisine.

Yucui ended work late so Glad and I ordered a Duck Salad to share while waiting for Yucui.

Shredded duck confit, mesclun tossed with homemade lemon vinaigrette, quail egg, orange segments, and cherry tomatoes. I love their vinaigrette. It gives a very zesty feel and boosted the flavour of the duck and greens.

The main courses that we ordered to share.

Duck leg confit, homemade mashed potato, sauté shiitake mushroom, orange segments,and orange infused natural jus. Duck was crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. The only downside was that it was slightly too salty but I think the orange segments kind of take away the saltiness.

Pan-seared sea bass, diced sauté potato with crabmeat, french beans, and caper vinaigrette. Sea bass was soft, albeit dry and the diced potato were crispy and goes very well with the protein.

Chicken thigh roulade stuffed with foie gras-infused chicken farce, creamy basmati rice, and parmesan sauce. Chicken roulade was really tender and the basmati rice was awesome beyond goodness.

So all the food that we tried were really good. I would definitely go back there again !

After our dinner, we headed to Raffles Hotel for a mini MissFayne photoshoot

Followed by 黑丸嫩仙草 for some sweet tooth satisfaction.

Hugeass cup of Taiwanese drinks. L-R, Red Bean Ice Blended 鮮奶紅豆, Sour Plum Tea 酸梅湯 and Lemon Wintermelon Tea 檸檬冬瓜. We all thought the Lemon Wintermelon Tea had a unique aftertaste to it. We didn't expect the drink so be such a big cup though. It is equivalent to the size of a large Koi thereabout ? Definitely too big a cup for us when we just had dinner and wanted something light and sweet. Nonetheless, I managed to finish my drink, being the true blue 水桶.

We ordered a "Mix & Match" to share. You can mix and match any four toppings and for your dessert you get to choose between 冷 熱 燒 冰沙. Do note that cold meant fridge cold and not ice cold. We ordered the wrong one, only realising that ours does not come with ice when we received it. But it is still very nice la. The server advised us to add in some creamer for a more flavourful taste and it is definitely much nicer with the creamer.

Lastly, a group photo before we met our chauffeurs for the night

& thank you to the boyfriend who came to pick me home despite his busy schedule ^.^
