Our fourth night of dinner on board the seven-day Norwegian Getaway Cruise was at Savor Dining Room at 5:30 p.m. We were early again this time and finished dinner service by 7:15 p.m. So awesome!
Savor Dining Room was located right across from Taste Dining Room and look practically identical. All the main dining rooms serve the same food, so it doesn’t really matter if you go to Tropicana, Taste, or Savor. However, looking back, I did enjoy dining at Taste or Savor more because the dining rooms were smaller which meant that the food came out faster than at Tropicana (the waiting time there was significantly longer for sure).
We ordered four appetizers: Escargot Cassoulet, Lime & Dill Shrimp, Peking Duck Salad, and Asparagus & Artichoke Risotto.
The Escargot Cassoulet was interesting. I actually expected a lot of baked escargots in a dish like usually eat them in a restaurant but I guess I neglected the “cassoulet” part. The cassoulet was a light pastry and acted as a pie for the escargots. I loved the escargot meat and the burgundy sauce.
The Lime & Dill Shrimp was amazing and a perfect appetizer to begin the meal because it was a bit sour and helped to open up the appetite. I am a big fan of seafood and shrimps for appetizers! 😀
The Peking Duck Salad was all right. The Peking duck was a bit too chewy and fatty.
Omg, the Asparagus & Artichoke Risotto was soooo good! I love risotto and they made this just right ^_^. A bit lemony and so tasty! In addition, I love artichoke so this made the entire dish just right for my tastebuds.
We ordered three main courses to share: Oven Roasted Australian Rack of Lamb, Mediterranean Calamari Salad, and Oven Baked Cornish Hen.
Just like the sushi from the other night, once everyone saw that there was rack of lamb available on the menu, almost everyone at the table ordered this. (Who doesn’t love lamb?!) The Oven Roasted Australian Rack of Lamb was done medium rare like I requested and quite gamey. I liked the seasoning though. I also liked the small touch of the French green beans being wrapped in bacon.
The Mediterranean Calamari Salad had nicely battered and fried calamari, but I wished they were a bit more hot from the fryer. By the time we dug into this, the calamari rings were not crispy anymore and kind of lukewarm. The rest of the salad was all right.
The Oven Baked Cornish Hen was all right as well. I really like the apple and fig stuffing that it came with. 🙂
We ordered five desserts to share and finished them all… kinda scary when you think about how much we could eat.
The White Chocolate Mousse & Red Velvet Genoise (“Italian sponge cake named after the city of Genoa and closely associated with Italian and French cuisine”) was amazing. The white chocolate mousse actually had a white chocolate taste and was so smooth. The red velvet sponge cake at the bottom was so moist and delicious too! ^_^
The Sacher Torte (a “specific type of chocolate cake, or torte, invented by Austrian Franz Sacher”) was a chocolate cake that was decadent and delicious. Yum! ❤ Simple classics. The vanilla schlag was a “whipped cream, used especially as a topping for cake, coffee”. (Oh, the things you learn while blogging about a meal!)
The Coconut Souffle was interesting and yummy with an orange sauce and crispy edges. 🙂 It was really soft too.
The Fresh Fruit Tartlet had an incredible smooth cream. It was so good and had a simple pastry. 🙂
The English Cherry Trifle wasn’t that great and I didn’t like the crumbly jelly at the bottom..
I was so hungry that day that even after all that food, I didn’t feel that full. The digestive enzymes certainly did help though. 🙂
Keep staying tuned for the rest of my blog posts outlining my trip on the seven-day Norwegian Getaway cruise! I was a bit bummed already on this day that we were already halfway through the trip! :O
