We went to Savour 2014 last Sunday as a treat after a very busy weekend of workshops, meet-ups and running around the city. It was our first time at Savour and we were very excited to try the wonderful dishes we’ve heard so much about.
The first dish we tried was from Chef Emmanuel Stroobant of Saint Pierre and Blue Lotus. The lamb dish was tender on the inside while the crunchy Five Spice exterior enhanced the natural flavor of the meat.
We had to try the pork dish from Chef Kentaro Torii of Forlino next. The suckling pig dish was tender however I was expecting a more savory dish. It was not as flavorful as I expected and the meat looked pale underneath the harsh sunlight.
The aged roast beef from Chef Mark Sargeant of Oxwell & Co and Rocksalt really intrigued us. I’ve never tried Yorkshire pudding before and the puffy pastry complemented the 32 day aged Sirloin quite well.
The homemade honeycomb was crunchy and the fresh cream combined with the dark Valrhona Pudding was surprisingly refreshing on such a hot day.
Since it was so sweltering, we wanted to try another cooling dish and the crab and potato dish from Chef Daniel Chavez from OLA fit the bill. It was refreshing and delicious. Perfect for such a hot day.
We could not pass up the cheese and bread from Chef Christope Paucod of Lugdunum Bouchon Lyonnais. The fresh cheese with chives, garlic and parsley was a great dip for the fresh baguette.
The best dish of the day belongs to Chef Christoper Millar from Stellar@1-ALTITUDE. The short rib was so tender and savory that it blew off all the other dishes we’ve tried.
Some of the other dishes we were eager to try were already sold out by time we got there. We would recommend going to this event on the first day at dinner, if it will still be held at the same spot, so you can enjoy the excellent food in the cool night overlooking the stunning Marina Bay vista.
