While waiting for a friend, we had some spare time around Plaza Singapura and Hubby Ro suggested a crepe place to get some dessert. We headed to Saybons which was inspired from the French phrase- C’est Bon which means ‘it’s good’ in French. To make it a little easier and unique, the people behind anglicized the phrase and added a ‘s’ at the back to make it easier for people to pronounce their brand name.
It was pleasantly surprising to know they have been working with the health promotional board to promote and make good and healthy wholesome food since 2008. Most of the dishes ranged from $3.50 to $8.50 and you could top up more for a complete set meal. They serve all day soups which everyone was digging into when we were there, savory and dessert crepes, salads and breads with homemade butter.
All the soups come in mug cup size and with no spoon. We ordered a tomato soup $3.50 regular cup size and the taste was tangy and less sour that I expected which was good. You’re supposed to drink the soup as it’s blended so smooth and kind to the throat. We thought it was quite a fun way to enjoy it just like how the french does it.
And the star was the crepe. We had nutella and banana crepe $3.70, 4 times more expensive than the one I had in Bangkok but the filling was rich and the crust was really crunchy. Such a perfect end to a rainy saturday! We can’t wait to return to try more soups and their savory crepes as well (minus the cheese of course).
