Saveur, previously of Joo Chiat fame, had moved to Purvis Street earlier this March. Like The French Stall, La Petit Cuisine and Le Cuisson, it’s doing the same not-yet-done-to-death concept of bringing affordable quality French cuisine to the masses blah blah blah. That’s great news for French-loving diners like yours truly, who can’t bear to patronise atas French restaurants every other day. I like the food here, especially the salmon confit which was as good as the first time I tried it (when Saveur was still a humble hawker stall in Ali Baba Eating House).
Be prepared to queue though (no reservations allowed), since when do Singaporeans not like anything cheap and good?
