Victoria Adventure – Brunch @ Saveur

Saveur Restaurant Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Location: 658 Herald Street , City of Victoria

After a sitting in the ferry and on the bus for 2+ hours, the Molangs have finally arrived in Downtown Victoria. It was a cold and rainy Saturday, and we were craving hot food! Not gonna lie, we originally had our sights set on Jam Cafe, but the lineup there seemed endless. As we walked around the neighbourhood, we found Saveur

It was almost, but only one table was occupied. We sneakily checked their menu and reviews online, and we saw no red flags. What gives? Ahhh what the heck, just go in!

Ambiance-wise, Saveur reminded me of AnnaLena. It had a ‘modern’ decor with black being one of the prominent colours. The place was spacious, and there was an open bar and an open kitchen.

Let’s jump right into food…

Lavender and white chocolate scone (free!)

This little appetizer (?) was complementary. We were told the scones were freshly made every morning. I believe them because the scones we’ve had were warm and fluffy! Although it contained white chocolate, the scone itself was hardly sweet, but it paired well with the sweet and tangy blackberry sauce.

Southern Chicken Sandwich ($15)

This had a roasted chicken breast served with a pesto sauce and coleslaw. On the side was a simple green salad. That “brick” was a piece of hot & crispy hash brown 😛 (I love the presentation). I quite enjoyed the sandwich. The chicken was tender, and the pesto cut down the richness of it.

Duck Bennedict ($15)

Poached eggs, hollandaisse sauce, and duck confit. This dish was neither amazing nor lackluster. Every component was cooked correctly, but the dish as a whole wasn’t as memorable as the chicken sandwich.

Molang Scores & Verdict

Food: 4/5

Value: 4/5

Service: 4.5/5

Ambiance: 4.5/5

Total: 17/20

Apparently this was a new restaurant that opened ~6 months ago. I’m still a bit perplexed as to why it was so empty during meal time on a Saturday… Anyway, it’s still a solid brunch place if you ever in Victoria.
