Concetto by saveur

Riding on the success of Saveur, founders Chef Joshua Koo and Chef Dylan Ong decides to bring affordable yet delectable Italian cuisine to the masses. The chefs use cooking techniques, gathered from past experiences in worldwide high-end restaurants, to produce promising dishes. Being Shatec-trained, our local chefs are establishing themselves pretty well in our competitive dining industry. The menu was a pleasant sight for me, dishes are categorised into Earth, Land, Seas and Light. IMG_2543Salmon: A nice piece of salmon fillet sits prettily on a bed of parma ham, pea ragu & bonito oil. The salmon skin shows off a good crisp and sear. However, it would have been perfect if the fillet was less done. I prefer my salmon slightly raw and pink inside. 
IMG_2551Duck Tortellini: Where do I begin? The pasta was nicely done, skin not too thick and cooked well. Yet, it would have been so much more satisfying if the more effort was put into the duck filling. Bland and dry, my companion and I could not hide our disappointment. Not to mention that the combination of the poached egg and parmesan emulsion was pretty distasteful.
IMG_2557Pistachio Panna Cotta: I strongly believe desserts exist for several important reasons. And one of them is to end off every single meal on a sweet note. Ever since my companion and I tried this dessert at Saveur, we fell in love with it. An explosion of flavours occurs with every spoonful of smooth, creamy panna cotta topped with crushed pistachio nuts. Perfecto.

  1. i agree with the duck tortellini, the filling lack lustre.. over all it didnt felt as good as how saveur is. ( we had 4 dishes and 1 appetiser) and i think saveur’s pistachio panna cotta is different and better than concetto’s =)

    1. Hi Kingsly,

      You’re spot on with the pistachio panna cotta. For some reason, I found the one at Saveur too milky to my liking. On the other hand, the one at concept fits me to a tee.
