This was our second destination for Restaurant Week! We managed to get a 10pm slot for dinner on a Wednesday night. Brasserie Les Saveurs is located in St Regis and I must really say that St Regis is very grand and beautiful! Situated on the first level, Brasserie Les Saveurs is not difficult to find at all.
So grand, we felt like royalty!
It was pretty dark and it was difficult capturing pictures of the food so pardon us for the lousy pictures!
Bread and butter. The butter was light and I really liked it!
The bread was too hard though.
Tomato puree with mozzarella cheese
Foie Gras Terrine- Duck foie gras terrine with roasted figs, balsamic vinegar and mesclun salad.
I'm a fan of foie gras so I really liked it! The balsamic vinegar added the right tinge of sourness to the foie gras and it was a delightful combination. Brioche was served along with the starter and I like how the simple brioche evened out the strong taste of the foie gras. Really yummy
Filet De Boeuf - roasted beef tenderloin, polenta sticks, sucrine salad, tomatoes, olives and red wine sauce.
The beef was pretty tender and was delicious with the red wine sauce. Beef and red wine sauce is always a winner! The polenta sticks with a salty and tasty coat and a plain centre were interesting. I liked the contrast in taste and I finished all the polenta sticks haha.
Vivaveau en piperade oven baked red snapper - with parma ham and herbs coulis
The fish was fresh and soft. The mixture of parma ham and fish was another contrast of flavours and we both felt that it was unique and tasty.
Chocolat - Trio of chocolate mousse with coffee icecream in pepper anglaise sauce.
The chocolate was rich, smooth and good. I liked the coffee icecream which provided a lighter edge to the dense chocolate. The coffee taste in the icecream is not overwhelming and does not shadow the taste of the chocolate mousse.
Pomme Verte- Slow baked apple with calvados custard cream green apple sorbet
The green apple sorbet does not possess the green apple sour and we couldn't decide if it was good or bad haha but I liked the sorbet as it is! The slow baked apple was flavourful and soft and it goes well with the sorbet. This was a lighter dessert as compared to the chocolat
Overall, we had a pleasant dining experience at Brasserie Les Saveurs. The place is pretty and the food is good. Will love to come here in the day time someday. Service was efficient. However, we were rushed into making our orders as they were closing. We were punctual and took our seats at 10pm. I felt that they should not have rushed us into placing our orders if they chose to open up the restaurant that late. Well, but we can't complain much as food was served quickly. Although efficient, the staff seemed cold and gave us the impression that they were not really willing to serve us.
For the price we paid, I would say that it was a steal to be able to dine here as their usual dinner menu is pretty expensive. If you're a fan of French fare and strong contrasting flavours, you definitely should give Brasserie Les Saveurs a go.
