Savvy–a New Dining Hot Spot at Harbour City

Lede: This month,we visited Savvy,a newly opened lifestyle restaurant,bar,and lounge at Prince Hotel,for a culinary treat.


Harbour City,one of the city largest shopping malls is also a top dining hub and home to dozens of F&B outlets. The just opened Savvy,the flagship lifestyle restaurant at Prince Hotel at Harbour City,is the latest eye-catching addition destined to be the next social and dining hotspot.


Savvy,which operates as a bar,lounge,and restaurant,serves a medley of Chinese,Asian and Western cuisines. The décor of this large venue is modern,sleek,and striking. Each of its three zones is distinctive–chic ceiling design of the bar near the entrance,bright and garden-like lounge perfect for a relaxing afternoon tea,and a restaurant area offering comfortable and spacious seating behind the open kitchen and two sleekly furnished private rooms for larger gatherings.


Savvy is guided by a team of six chefs led by Chef de Cuisine Derek Ng,a seasoned chef with 28 years of culinary experience who earned his stripes at some of the city’s most iconic dining establishments. The other chefs include Pastry Chef Jeff Lo,Indonesian Chef May Ng,Thai Chef Nontra-Udon Buapha,Indian Chef Yadav Sanjay,and Chinese Chef Lau Man Ming–quite an impressive line-up.


Savvy serves an a la carte menu,a lunch special,a set dinner,afternoon tea delights,bar bites and a full drinks menu. We were there for the Set Dinner($468 Mon -Thu/$528 Fri–Sun,PH)which includes an appetiser buffet from the Cold Table,a main course,and a dessert from the Savvy Dessert Trolley.
The appetiser buffet comprises a smorgasbord of salads,seafood such as shrimp,conch,and mussels,Japanese cold noodles,plus soup–plenty to choose from. As is for the main course which we selected a few for sharing. Among them is Tom Yum Kung with Fresh River Prawns which is elaborately prepared and presented. The ingredients of the cooked soup are drained;the broth is poured into a flame-resistant glass bowl and heated till boiling;another bowl filled with garnishing is coupled to the bottom bowl to allow the boiling soup to rise up and soak in the flavours of the garnishing–quite a show.


Other dishes we chose included North Indian Chicken,Traditional Condiments,baked Naan another which handsomely presented dish,Ayam Goreng Kunyit Nasi Kuning,Turmeric Chicken,Yellow Rice–anther tasty dish;and Australian Wagyu,sauteed Zucchini,Purple Potato with Pepper Sauce–the nicely marbled wagyu is tender,moist,and juicy.
We wrapped up our filling meal with several mouth-watering desserts presented on a dessert trolly including Blueberry Cheesecake,XXX,and XXX.


Savvy also serves a sophisticated menu of cocktails and mocktails. We tried Pome and Plum($108),a sea-salted Brazilian plum cachaca mixed with juices,Yuzuvvy($108),a umeshu or plum alcohol based cocktail,and Purple Love($98),a refreshing juice mocktail seasoned with soy sauce.


 

We very much enjoyed our visit to Savvy which offers an excellent selection of cuisines and dishes and a vibrant ambience. If you are looking for a hearty meal with your friends or family or a weary shopper eager for a relaxing respite,Savvy is an excellent place to visit.
