If you have nothing to do this weekend, I highly recommend visiting Savour 2014 at the Marina Bay Promontory. Itâ€™s a mish mash of famous restaurants of Michelin starred chefs and other illustrious restaurants in Singapore, all located in 1 compact and convival setting. Tickets are not cheap. Dinner tickets, if bought online are $65, and gets you only $30 in Savour Dollars, which you use as payment for the sampling dishes. Most sampling dishes from each of the restaurants are around $15! Itâ€™s definitely not cheap, but itâ€™s also a great way to eat your way through many of the restaurants youâ€™ve always wanted to try, in a short span of time.
If youâ€™ve been to Savour 2012 and Savour 2013 which were held at the F1 Pit Stop, the biggest difference you would find is that the area has been scaled down. But I really think this is a good thing because for one, this area is not as hot as the scorching tarmac at the F1 Pit Stop, and also, the very compactness facilitates the idea of hopping from restaurant to restaurant to savour the petite bites. In fact, the focus seems to be on the restaurants more than the small retail stores. To cut it short, it just feels like one big party, right in the heart of Marina Bay.
Famous restaurants included in this yearâ€™s Savour 2014 line up include Christophe Paucodâ€™s Lugdunum Bouchon Lyonnaise, James Knappetâ€™s Bubbledogs, Bruno Menardâ€™s La Cantine and Julien Royerâ€™s Jaan to name a few.
The huge meteor like glob in the middle container is actually Emmanuel Stroobantâ€™s head.
Nespresso always takes up a huge booth for each Savour event.
Itâ€™s definitely so much more convenient for Savour to be at the Promontory. Itâ€™s right across all the offices. Many people came with their colleagues in tow!
Free sex anyone?
