Celebrate the Holiday Season With InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG)
Like all previous years, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has brought together the different culinary teams from the different properties, showcasing the various offerings for this year's festive season. This year it is held at Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre together with Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Holiday Inn Atrium, Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre, Indigo Katong, InterContinental Singapore and InterContinental Robertson Quay
What caught my attention this year is the Har Cheong Roast Turkey ($168+, 6kg) from the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport. While the prawn paste flavour is not very prominent, the Cantonese style turkey is juicy and tender. What I find divine is the accompanying fermented beancurd sauce that goes so well with the turkey.
Other Asian inspired turkeys such as Tandoori Turkey with Masala Potato ($120, 4.5kg) and Roasted Assam Turkey ($128, 6kg) are available from Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre and Holiday Inn Atrium.
If you are planning to dine outside, Baba Chews at Indigo Katong offers a lavish dinner of seafood on ice, charcuterie, cheese board, a DIY section and hot mains prepared a la minute during the festive eve. A interesting take on the hawker favourite is the Baba's Oyster Omelette Soup. An golden onsen egg and oyster pancake wth foam of oyster soup, topped with Avruga caviar.
No Christmas is complete without a Buche de Noel. A few interesting fusion version of the log cake, combining Japanese and Asian flavours to the log cake arouse by sweet tooth, such as the Matcha Goma Yule Log ($75+) and Taro Coconut Yule Log ($75+) from Crowne Plaza Changi Airport.
Other interesting creations include Granny Smiths & Coconut Yule Log Cake ($78) from Holiday Inn Atrium, Matcha Sesame Yule Log ($70) from Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre, Memories of Childhood ($78) from InterContinental Singapore, Chendol Log Cake ($59+) and Ubi Manis ($62+) from Indigo Katong.
