there was a queue at the entrance at 6pm. the entrance tickets were S$69 for each person and had S$30 stored-value on each ticket. i guess that means entrance fee was S$39. i think we topped up another S$60 each.
i guess i had read about savour but never really paid attention. now that we were going, i kind of read up on the participating restaurants, decided on a few to try.
one of the restaurant stalls we were interested was ku de ta.
wife not interested in belly pork (which is so common these days in fine dining), so we picked the sous vide duck + angus beef plate for S$18.
beef ok but then we can do anytime. no attraction.
duck pretty good too. again you can buy smoked duck from ntuc, mmmm, even qoo10.
certainly competent. no great motivation to go sky high & pay sky high.
the other restaurant stall we wanted to try was stellar at 1-altitutde. used to be on amex palate but seems that no more. i wouldn’t really go there w/o palate discounts.
there was a good crowd. we were early at about 6pm. later the crowd & queue were longer & we did not have enough interest to stand in queue for other food.
i thought stellar’s wagyu burger was quite good, and S$18 price was quite fine too. when i was in the queue, a young mother was just ahead of me. she had bought 1 already & was ordering 2 more & telling the server she wanted it more cooked as her young child could not take the medium rare.
bought 1 & ordered 2 more. that gave me some confidence haha!^^
wagyu & onions were tasty with simple seasoning. the brioche also quite nice. 1 of my wife’s friend couple came so we shared & had a quarter each. 🙂
i quite liked this wagyu burger. it’s something that worked for me.^^

great ambience & vibes!
we decided to try another stall. this time we picked midsummer house, a UK 2 michelin star restaurant.
the pea veloute was pretty ok. i think it was S$12. always like pea soup.
that was our last tasting as we were not attracted to the other food, and the crowd & queue built up after that. 🙂

so we didn’t spend much of the S$90 each, and used up all the money buying groceries, like japanese strawberries, yuzu, italian iberico ham etc.
would i come for this again? for myself, probably not. don’t think my wife interested either. with some friends, not so hot but don’t mind doing too. there were other food we could try. 🙂
