Re-savouring Saveur Art
Just a quick update with this re-visit to Saveur Art.
Saveur's pasta, chorizo, grilled prawn, chopped kombu, chilli oil
The pasta starter here is different from the one at Saveur. This one had diced prawns and chorizo while the other has chicken. Both had very nicely timed noodles with a firm bite which I liked.
spiced pumpkin velouté, chive cream
A sweet spiced pumpkin soup. I couldn't tell that it was chive cream. Even if it was regular cream, it was a little too little to make much of a difference.
egg confit, truffled potato mousseline, macadamia nuts, brown butter
I remembered liking this a lot from the last visit. I still like it a lot. The bits of macadamia nuts were aromatic and had a very good crunch which really worked with the egg and potato mousse.
roasted stuffed quail
This was definitely my favourite plate from the dinner. Quail was roasted medium well-ish and was stuffed with foie gras. On the side, more of that grilled foie and some mushrooms.
sauteed forest mushrooms
As it says, mushrooms.
grilled pork belly, provençal artichoke barigoule
I remembered that the pork belly wasn't bad at all, but there was a little too much fat on some of the pieces and I'm now at a loss for how to further describe it.
