Saveur

A and I checked out this little cafe called Saveur on Sunday night.
We heard raves about the good food and low prices of the French food served at this cafe,
and also saw pictures of pretty food from my friend Cheryl’s Instagram,
so we decided to go take a look for ourselves!

I read about how Saveur used to be a kopitiam stall and after they moved to their new location,
standard of comfort, ambience, location went up, but the prices remained the same!

It was quite a big place and it was packed when we arrived.
They have two units along Purvis Road but they only opened one side of the cafe.
It was still very cosy though!
We were also very excited because there are alot of other yummy “kopitiam” style food along Purvis Street!

The menu looks pretty promising.
And the prices are REALLY affordable – like only $6.90 for a serving of pasta!
I like the drawing on the wall too. Very cute!

Look how it’s packed to the brim!
I don’t really like how the tables are really close to each other though.
The people at the next table just need to look over and they can see our pores.

We order bread and butter and it was quite bad.
We also ordered mushroom soup that came in a little coffee cup.
The soup is really frothy and it’s quite interesting!
We were a little shocked at the size of the soup though.
But I guess the serving size of the food here matches the prices.

And sorry, we finished the soup before I realized I should take some pictures first. Haha!

I had a prawn and caviar angel hair pasta!
The presentation is gorgeous! But the serving size is really small.
I heard the woman at the next table saying “好像吃不饱” too. Hahahaha!

Just look at the size of the spoon VS amount of pasta.

Sorry, no pictures of me eating again.
I was starving! Heh!

IMG_5906

But the most disappointing dish of all has got to be what A ordered.
This is roast pork with some beans thing with POACHED egg.
I have never seen a poached egg that looks like that.

IMG_5907

This is poached egg.

THIS is half boiled egg.

We (obviously) still had a lot of space for desserts but didn’t want to have anymore food there 😦
I guess Saveur is still pretty value for money, and this cafe is really cozy, bright and clean!
A and I are quite picky when it comes to food.
But I’m sure Saveur has such good reviews for a good reason.
Do check it out and see if the food is to your liking if you fancy French food!

We didn’t have desserts at Saveur but A made me the prettiest birthday cake I have ever had!
It was my birthday on Monday and silly A crept into the room at midnight to give me this.

LOVE!

Thanks baby for the yummy (very) homemade birthday cake! ❤

I guess as you get older, the simpler you want your birthdays to be.
Especially me, because I have a feeling that I am aging at an alarming rate. Hahaha!

A woke up early and made me mee suah with egg for breakfast!

We launched The Tiramisu Hero‘s website on my birthday too!
The orders started rolling in like 20 minutes after we lived the website,
so I spent the entire day doing tiramisu.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who checked out our website or LIKED our Facebook Page!
BIG THANKS to those who gave their support and placed orders too!
I IS LOVE YOU! ❤

We also came up with this little thing where we can help convey messages with our tiramisu via handwritten notes!
Cute right cute right!

A want to be mysterious too and she said she want to bring me to “somewhere new”
for a nice birthday dinner after a long day at work.
We popped by The Cliff at The Sentosa for a yummy dinner!

The food was REALLY, REALLY, REALLY fucking good!
Even the bread with olive oil was awesome.
There was a choice of 4 different types of bread.
The olive oil was fab! And they served it with some curry-flavoured powder too.
Delectable!

We went back to A’s place and immediately switched back to Tiramisu Auntie mode.
A’s Mommy made a cheesecake for my birthday too! Very love. Hurhurhur.

IMG_5927

Hahaha I know the decor is a little retarded.
A and me designed it. Hahaha!!

Here are also some pictures of me celebrating birthday with my family.
My Dad also share the same birth date as me!
I AM MY DADDY’s BIGGEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT! Hahahaha.
I’m so glad my family liked the tiramisu cake A and I made too!
It is the first time I made a cake for Dad too. ❤

Mommy look so pretty.
Can I be like her when I grow up? :p

IMG_5930

Oh! I also want to share this very exciting pack of goodies I got from Oh! That Shop.
It is totally god sent because I just welcomed quite a few pairs of new shoes,
and we all know not all pretty shoes are comfortable to be in.

Thank God for Oh! That Shop, I now have a lot more shoe accessories to fix all my shoes woes!

Screen shot 2012-07-31 at AM 01.38.07

I am so excited about the shoe stretcher!
My Mom used to tell me to bite my new shoes so they won’t “bite” me.
Now I can introduce this thing to her so we don’t have to bite our shoes anymore. Hahaha!
It was my first time seeing the bunion toe spreader too.
I think the most lethal pair of stilettos can be very comfortable now. Wee!
They have a lot many other products that are damn amazing! Go take a look too OK!

Thanks for dropping by my blog today!
Will be back with more updates. Meanwhile, let’s eat tiramisu!
Heh.

Peace xx

    happy birthday peggy!

    totally agree with your review of saveur. checked it out a few weeks ago and while the pasta was yummy, the serving was reaallly tiny! and we ordered the pork belly and chicken roulade.. unimpressive. maybe the duck confit was the star dish?

    btw the link to tiramisu hero site is broken! i think there is an extra “.
    good luck on your new business! 😀

    Hi Peggy! Happy birthday! I went to Saveur before, and while I agree the serving size is really small, the food was really delicious! I thought the duck confit was the best duck confit I ever had and even beat expensive french restaurants! Anyway, the duck confit is their star dish so maybe you should try it out! Queue there is really long though.

  8. Hello peggy! I dropped by Saveur and had some chicken foie gras thing, it was soooo crappy – a total waste of money. I should have opted for the duck confit!

    Anyway if you don’t mind me asking, what are you working as now? (Now that you have Tiramisu Hero) I remember you left your JobsCentral job awhile ago..

    My name also starts with A 🙂
