Guy Savoy Singapore

Veg Pistou_new.jpgSingapore, Spring 2013 – For Mr. King’s birthday, we went to Guy Savoy at Marina Bay Sands for its relatively new lunch offering, Menu “TGV” – The Express, 60 minute experience, but oddly, lunch took nearly 3 hours (I mean it in a good way!).

Chef Guy Savoy requires no introduction. He is owner of the eponymous Guy Savoy restaurants in Paris and Las Vegas. Amongst a group of famous chefs who invented “Nouvelle Cuisine,” Chef Savoy’s style is defined by a lighter taste as opposed to traditional French cooking. Currently, he has 5 Michelin Stars under his belt, with 3 at his Paris restaurant and 2 at his Las Vegas one.

So we held high expectations for his latest creations here in Singapore. The lunch started off with the Amuse Bouche trio – foie gras & toast, cheese waffles and purée of green beans with an almond jelly custard with asparagus.

Happy Baguette_newThe home-baked breads were all delicious, but especially amusing was the “Happy Baguette” (intriguing name for a French baguette, isn’t it?).

Let’s take a look at the dishes:

“Ravioli” of Crab, Carrot-Ginger-Lemongrass “Nage”

– This was our favorite – with haricots, purple beet-root from Brittany and very generous serving of Sri Lankan crab.

Artichoke & Black Truffle Soup

Toasted Mushroom Brioche & Black Truffle Butter

– This is supposedly the signature dish, and we found it aromatic, creamy rich and distinctive. The Filo-pastry brioche with black truffles butter was excellent.

Shoulder of Australian Wagyu in two preparations

– One piece of Wagyu was braised fully cooked while the other was lightly seared. The beef was extremely tender, as if it melted in my mouth. An outstanding dish!

Overall, it was a good dining experience with excellent service.
