went with wife for dinner at brasserie les saveurs at st regis on 4.8.2016. ^^
1st time coming here since amex love dining (palate) now included this restaurant.
though it is a brasserie the ambience is quite grand with double volume high ceiling.
quite nice la…
we looked at the dinner menu.
there was a connoisseur dinner semi-buffet.
the hors de eouvres buffet items quite limited, not even as good as the below par equinox i recently visited where the spread was like halved.
the main courses though looked better than equinox, and i was eyeing the prime ribs.
the captain advised that the prime rib for the semi-buffet was about 2/3 the serving c/w ala carte (S$76), but if one were taking that then might as well have the semi-buffet (S$73).
i may come back for this, but for this evening, i didn’t want the buffet so we did ala carte.
amuse bouche was a crabmeat wrap. ok nothing special but certainly a plus if they offer amuse bouche for regular ala carte orders. 🙂
bread though was poor, as in not bad but not the standard of this outfit.
the oyster platter was good.
nice sweet juicy oysters, and a good price at 50% love dining discount for 2pax.
lobster bisque looked good, tasted ok, indeed velvety, quite a bit of crabmeat but not that sweet. actually quite an average dish for me…
pan fried scallops were dry & below par. felt old, not fresh not gummy texture. i think very poor for a good restaurant standard.
even my own pan-seared hokkaido scallops was better than this!
we were a bit the non complaining type. the scallops were not spoilt or bad. but actually it would be better if i told the restaurant immediately whether they replaced it or not. it’s better to feedback to them.
fortunately the skirt steak was very good.
very flavoruful & tender enough, though some parts just slightly tendonous.
the mash, herb butter were good too. 🙂
this audtralian wagyu with jap name & a secondary cut so i was wondering how they prepare the steak as it would be tough with connective tissues. the captain couldn’t really explain or he didn’t understand the question, but anyway steak was good which was all that mattered.
dinner was S$161 for 2 after 50% discounts. the glass of wine wife had was expensive. i think S$29 no discounts. at this price even with discounts dinner was ok not great & could get much better value elsewhere.
but i will still come back for the prime ribs, and maybe also the tajima steak & oysters w/o the other items.
