The Story of Saga
Saga, the name that represents both Singapore and Sweden, holds a profound significance to me. Growing up in the warm and humid environment of Singapore, one of my favorite pastimes was picking saga seeds and preserving them in bottles to gift to loved ones. These beautiful red seeds, known as 相思豆 (xiang si dou) in Chinese, symbolize love across diverse cultures. Within the restaurant, you will discover a bottle of saga seeds lovingly handpicked by my late grandmother, a cherished memento I brought with me from Singapore. This symbolizes the deep-rooted connection between my culinary journey and my familial traditions.
At Saga, each dish I create tells a unique story. It is a tapestry woven from the fabric of my food memories, the flavors imprinted in my mind, and the lingering fragrances that evoke nostalgia. Having worked in a variety of dining establishments, ranging from vibrant brunch spots to esteemed Michelin-starred kitchens, I always find myself gravitating towards the flavors of my upbringing—the tastes that resonate with my soul. Singapore is abundant with produce all-year-around and after learning to work with seasonal produce, it naturally set me on the path down preserving the best of the seasons through fermentation. I have handcrafted miso, garums and soy sauce with exclusively Swedish ingredients. It is these flavors that I cook for you at Saga, blending my Singaporean heritage with the newfound inspiration I derive from Sweden’s natural bounty.
Allow me to take you on a culinary voyage where every dish not only satiates your palate but also tells a tale—a harmonious fusion of memories, flavors, and aromas. Welcome to Saga, where the stories of Singapore and Sweden converge to create an unforgettable dining experience.
