It is the time of the year for celebration with the festive season around the corner. At Mandarin Oriental Singapore, it has prepared a great holiday feast of Christmas roastery, bakery and goodies for the ideal gathering.
Clam Chowder Soup
Our Christmas celebration at Melt Cafe started with the Clam Chowder Soup. The comforting and creamy bowl of soup infused with the essence of the seafood, whetted up the appetite for the great feast ahead.
Apple and Walnut Salad
Parma Ham with Bocconcini, shaved parmesan, tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar dressing
Following the soup, we have some light appetiser in Christmas colour, the greens. We were served two different types of salad - Apple and Walnut Salad, and Parma Ham with Bocconicin, Shaved Parmesan, Tomatoes, Balsamic Vinegar Dressing. While the former was nutty and freshing, I like the latter for the complexity but yet balanced in flavour.
Honey Glazed Bone-In Christmas Ham
Mandarin Oriental Truffle Christmas Turkey
A must for every Christmas dinner is the ham and turkey. We have the Honey Glazed Bone-In Christmas Ham as well as the Mandarin Oriental Truffle Christmas Turkey. For those that is looking for an even more luxurious treat, Mandarin Oriental offers other festive items such as the Homemade Festive Foie Gras Terrine, Oven Roasted Suckling Pig, Roasted Australian Grass-Fed Rib Eye, Crackling Pork Knuckle and many more.
Chocolate Yule Log Cake
As of every Christmas tradition, the log cake is a must. The Chocolate Yule Log Cake, comes with dark chocolate creamier, chocolate Viennese sponge with chocolate crunch. Classic but delicious.
Christmas Apricot Pistachio Pie
For something for elegant and unique, there are the Christmas Apricot Pistachio Pie and White Forest Christmas Wreath. The Christmas Apricot Pistachio Pie consists of rosemary apricot pistachio cream, vanilla sable tart with orange chocolate mousse. The crowd favourite was the White Forest Christmas Wreath that is made up of caramel cremeux, amarena cherry coulis and almond cake.
