Flavors Restaurant at Swiss-Garden Hotel and Residences is offering a traditional red and gold Christmas Buffet and the highlight of the feast is a carving stall with Oven Roasted Turkey with Chestnut Stuffing.
Executive sous chef Wong Yean Loong said the turkey was marinated for a day, steamed then baked for an hour to retain its deliciously juicy flavours.
The restaurants Chestnut Stuffing complements the Oven Roasted Turkey with its nutty graininess.
It is served with Button Mushroom, Giblet or Cranberry Sauce with roasted chestnuts baby carrots and brussel sprouts.
Another traditional Christmas delicacy is the scrumptious Roasted Herb Wellington Beef.
The lavish dish of grilled Australian beef is covered in crisp puff pastry and mushrooms and marinated in fresh herbs.
It is an added luxury to have the dish alongside the turkey as it symbolises grandeur, said Wong.
A sumptuously decadent Santas Winter Pumpkin Soup and the Pan Fried Salmon have a refreshing orange twist.
The soup incorporates a blend of fresh herbs, celery, onions and carrots, fresh orange zest, leek and pumpkin into chicken stock to create a fragrant, luscious soup.
The richness of the Pan Fried Salmon is perfectly balanced by the slightly tangy Orange Sauce.
The Christmas Buffet is definitely traditional, said Swiss-Garden Internationals corporate marketing communications manager Linda Evelyn Wong We believe Christmas should be celebrated traditionally but infused with contemporary elements, she said.
