Ho Ho Ho! Christmas is just around the corner and to celebrate this joyous occasion, Goodwood Park Hotel Singapore has once again created a delectable savoury and sweet takeaways that is perfect to any gathering at home. For those that prefers to dine outside, you can also consider the festive menus as well as tempting buffet spreads at the hotel's dining establishments - Coffee Lounge, Gordon Grill and L' Espresso.
Last year, the hotel created the 12 treasure turkey. Sticking to its tradition of creating Christmas feasts with Asian flair, this year the hotel presents the Soy-braised Turkey ($238, good for 8-10 pax) served with toasted spiced almonds and homemade chilli sauce. This is inspired by the Hong Kong style soy sauce chicken. What surprised me is how tender and juicy the chef manage to execute the dish, slow cooked for no less than 2 hours with aromatics. I probably would have mistaken it as soy sauce chicken if it was a blind folded tasting.
Slow Roasted Iberico Pork Belly
If you are not into turkey, you can try the Slow Roasted Iberico Pork Belly ($338, good for 6 to 8 pax). The slow roasted pork belly comes with pickled cabbage, apple sauce and pork jus. The skin is really crackling and crispy while the meat is cooked until so soft and tender. This is limited to 25 orders per day.
Mini Turkey Char Siew Po Lo Buns
Another new treats this year which we all enjoyed is the Mini Turkey Char Siew Po Lo Buns ($15 for 6 pieces). It is basically like your po lo bun but mini version. However the texture is even softer stuffed with sweet savoury turkey meat.
Yuletide Blossom Log Cake
For the sweet treats, we have the Yuletide Blossom Log Cake ($82 for 1 kg). The hand-piped butter cream flowers are set against a snowy canvas of white chocolate mousse that coats strawberry chiffon sponge, yuzu infused pear bits and a crunchy hazelnut Breton sable middle.
Jolly Chocolate, Blackcurrant and Cherry Savarin Cake
The Jolly Chocolate, Blackcurrant and Cherry Savarin Cake ($68 for 1 kg) is a sponge cake-bread hybrid creation that uses meringu as a rising agent. Inside the cake, there are blackcurrant and cherry curd, with dark chocolate encasing the whole cake.
Goodwood Mao Shan Wang Durian Christmas Log Cake
For the durian fans, you may not want to miss the Goodwood Mao Shan Wang Durian Christmas Log Cake ($75 for 500g). It comes with lashings of creamy Mao Shan Wang durian goodness within the layers of vanilla sponge. There is also the D24 Durian Christmas Log Cake ($80 for 1 kg).
Whiskey Profiteroles Chocolate Tart
Making a come back is the Whiskey Profiteroles Chocolate Tart ($52 for 600g). The choux pastry profiteroles are piped generously with whiskey custard and prettily stacked up in a cone. It is then decorated with caramelised pistachios and icing snowflakes, followed by chocolate hazelnut cream piped near the base which is made of chocolate sponge surrounded by an Oreo crust. The whisky comes a bit quite strong for me but it is an ideal drink for party isn't it? Oh I mean dessert for party.
