The indulgent meat buffet offers a scrumptious spread of seasonal goodies with quality roasts flavoured with aromatic herbs and spices, including the 'diamond of the earth' itself, black truffle, as well as other earthy bites come by way of a harvest bounty of root vegetables, fresh greens and fruits.
Dingley Dell Pork Rack 4.2/5
Known for its marbling and tender texture due to the special cereal-based diet feed and stress-free environment the Dingley Dell pig is reared in, the pork rack is brined with Chef's Ian secret recipe brining mix for 12 hours to tenderise the meat and enhance its flavours. It goes well with the house made pineapple sauce which provides a tangy flvour to the dish.
Whiskey-Aged US Angus Beef Prime Ribs 4.2/5
Considered as one of the most flavoursome cuts of beef, its Whiskey-Aged US Angus Beef Prime Ribs flaunts a fine-grained texture and generous marbling. The meat is dry-aged in house for 14 days by being wrapped in a cloth soaked in bourbon, before being slow roasted to a perfect medium rare doneness, boasting tenderness and succulence in each bite.
Spit-roasted Chicken with Truffle 4/5
Pre-soaked for up to 24 hours in a special brine full of fresh herbs and vegetables, the Spit-roasted Chicken with Truffle is further slathered with house-made truffle butter inside and out which imparts a distinct truffle aroma and retains the succulence of the meat at the same time.
Beef Wellington 3.8/5
The Beef Wellington features a hunk of fillet steak coated with duxelles before being wrapped in a golden crusty puff pastry and baked.
Balsamic Braised Beef Short Ribs 4/5
The hot food section features several other glorious dishes for the enjoyment of diners, which includes the Balsamic Braised Beef Short Ribs. Coated in a flavourful gravy, the beef short ribs boast a soft tender texture, which fell apart easily in the mouth.
Yorkshire Pudding 3.8/5
To soak up all the luscious drippings and gravy, the Yorkshire Pudding is a welcoming addition on the plate.
