Christmas Celebration at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel
Christmas is coming! Whether or not you are a believer of Christmas, this is perhaps the only time that you get to once again tuck into your festive favourites. Surrounded by the galaxy of enchanting lights in Orchard, Marriott Café at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel might be just the right place for this occasion.
Head down for its Festive Lunch & Dinner Buffet, which is dazzled with Christmas delicacies such as Roast Turkey with Dried Fruits & Chestnut Bread Stuffing, Australian Roast Beef and Bourbon & Honey Glazed Leg Ham. While Roast Turkey is usually there for a symbolic reason, pairing it with dried fruits & chestnut bread stuffing does stir up the merry mood. Up for something with an Asian twist? You may consider bringing home its Asian Salt Spiced Turkey with Mandarin Jus (4.5- 5kg, $188 nett). Marinated overnight with star anise, cinnamon, cloves, Sichuan powder, white pepper and glazed with honey, the aroma and spices become even more pronounced when the turkey is fully roasted.
With a glass of red wine in hand, the quintessential Australian Roast Beef speaks with its juicy and tender meat, and a drizzle of the beef jus elevates its natural beef flavour. What really amazed me is the bolder-than-usual Bourbon & Honey Glazed Leg Ham, that is amazingly moist and juicy, lined with a thin layer of seasoned fats.
Indulge in hot seafood highlights such as Lobster Thermidor, Oyster Florentine and Gratinated Prawns, where savoury cheese and heavy cream liven up the cold crustacean shellfish with decadent textures and flavours.
Asian delicacies also join in with popular dishes such as Singapore Chilli Crab; Salted Egg Prawns; Braised Pork Belly with Light Soya Sauce etc.
Christmas desserts are definitely one of my favourites, simply because most of them have elements of alchohol infused ingredients. The Baked Speculoos Caramel Lotus Cookies Cheesecake (1kg, $68nett) is a crowd-pleaser with its light and fluffy texture but what stood out for me is the Steamed Plum Pudding with Brandy Sauce. I love its dark and chocolatey notes and hints of winey flavour that permeates the pudding. While Santa’s Amaretto Tipple is generous with its mini Amaretto shot, English Sherry Trifle wins with its Sherry soaked cherries.
Relive the yearly tradition with this year's Coffee Praline Dulcey Yule Log - the core lies almond dacquoise sponge that is supported with a layer of crispy praline. A slather of a layer of rich white coffee chocolate mousse binds them together, before wrapping all up with premium Valrhona dulcey chocolate cream.
