Restaurant Review: Say Hello To Affordable French Cuisine at SAYBONS
SHARE WITH FRIENDS!
The restaurant is handing out soup shots in lieu of its 10th anniversary
If you frequent Plaza Singapura, you might have noticed a modest soup and crepe kiosk at the basement leading up from the MRT. First launched in 2007, SAYBONS has come a long way (well, 10 years to be exact) in its quest to bring affordable and accessible French food to Singapore.
To celebrate its decade-long success, the French dining kiosk has not only updated its menu to include more savouries of soups, risottos and galettes, but also a slew of delectables from the ‘SAYBONS 10th Anniversary Specials’.
We recently visited the 30-seater outlet located at Plaza Singapura, and here are 3 dishes that left us wanting more:
1. Escargot Gratin with 3 Cheeses ($11 for 1⁄2 dozen)
Possibly the best hors d’oeuvre we’ve had in a while, SAYBONS’ escargot gratin features six plump escargots placed in deep wells of a casserole dish, before filled with butter and three different cheeses of Blue, Gruyere and Gouda. The escargots are then baked till gooey and served with crusty French bread. We couldn’t help but swoon over the taste profiles as a result of the melted cheeses and butter.
