In an blink of an eye, it is almost end of the year. Have you make plans to celebrate the festive seasons with love ones, family or friends? If not, then how about considering the 3 course festive set lunch, 4 course Christmas set dinner or an extravagant 6 course New Year's Eve set dinner at Xperience Restaurant, Sofitel So Hotel Singapore.
Smoked Salmon Tartare 3.8/5
I tried the Christmas 4 Course Set Dinner ($85 per pax) which is available from 24 to 26 December 2016. We started off with the Smoked Salmon Tartare. It comes with 2 slices of sourdough topped with salmon mousse, wild herb salad and citrus. A light and appetizing kick off for dinner. My only complain is that the sourdough was quite hard to cut. I would prefer the chef prepared it in bite size portion.
Roasted Pumpkin and Saffron Soup 4.2/5
Our second course is the Roasted Pumpkin and Saffron Soup that comes with a handcrafted pumpkin rose stuffed with fresh spanner crab. The sweetness of the crab meat swam lively in the velvety soup while the pumpkin rose provided the occasional texture bites. It is a bowl of comforting and hearty soup.
Cote de Boeuf 4/5
For the main course, the chef will crave a succulent Cote de Boeuf at the table. The juicy and flavourful rib eye is paired with truffle potato mousseline, root vegetables and dressed in a forestiere sauce.
Chocolate Yule Log Cake 4/5
Wrapping up the 4 course set dinner is the Chocolate Yule Log Cake. I am not a big fan of log cake but this was moist and good. I actually gone back to have a few more bites.
Besides the Christmas 4 course set dinner, you can also start your celebration early with the 3 course set lunch at pocket friendly price of $45 per pax which is available from 5 to 26 December 2016.
Note: This is an invited tasting.
