How many of you have started the Christmas Feasting? Some like our family, will roast our own Turkey(s) every year and have it with at home with our family.
I know many can't cook or do not have the time to cook, and prefer to dine out. A few days ago, on the invitation of PARKROYAL on Beach Road, we had a Christmas / New Year buffet at the Plaza Brasserie.
Maybe for some of you who wants to head out for a Christmas lunch or dinner, this might be an option that is not that expensive.
You probably have read previously what they serve on their usual buffet, from the 15 to 31 December 2011, they have additional festive food for their Festive Feasting.
There's the delicious chicken rice, sashimi, laksa, soft shell crabs, spicy stir fried beef that makes you salivate. There are many more, but I shall focus this post on their Christmas and New Year offerings.
The 'live' station where a selection of "Roasted Turkey with Sausage Meat, Chestnut and Mushroom Stuffing", "Roasted Honey Glazed Ham with Pineapple and and Cranberry Sauce", "Roasted Ribeye on Wagon served with Herbs Sauce" and "Duck served with Chili and Plum Sauce".
Last Saturday when we were there, we had the Turkey and Honey Glazed Ham.
Their specialty, the Roasted Turkey and the Roasted Honey Glazed Ham.
If you have been to their buffet last Christmas, the hotel continues the tradition of having 12 signature sauces to complement the Christmas Turkey.
Sauces include Laksa Sauce, Giblet Sauce, Cranberry Sauce, BBQ Sauce, Rendang Sauce, Thai Mango Sauce, Satay Sauce, Black Pepper Sauce, Mustard Sauce, Tong Gui Herbal Sauce, Sichuan Sauce and Pineapple Sauce.
My favourite sauce of all? The Thai Mango Sauce!
If Turkeys, Hams and Roast Meats are not the thing for you, you can just feast on their Christmas cakes and cookies.
Yes, I was the 'first' to go for desserts while others are indulging on other food. Probably my 3rd log cake this year so far.
Christmas Fruit Cake. One of my favourite cakes around is the fruit cake.
They also serve the Christmas Pudding with Brandy sauce. I did not see it though, probably it's for dinner or yet to be displayed out.
Ginger Bread and other assorted Christmas Cookies were also served.
Tempted? I was, that's why I took some first!
I snagged the corner piece with the chocolate. I should have gotten some ice cream and have it together with the cakes!
So how much does it cost? Depends on what day and whether it's lunch or dinner.
Quite affordable I reckon.
