Oven Roasted Medley

The verdict? We particularly enjoyed Roasted Tom (male) Turkey which is also the Christmas special. Turkey may taste plain compared to chicken but if you pair it with side dishes such as chestnut and apple stuffing, brussel sprout roasted baby potatoes, carrot vichy, dress it with a layer of giblet gravy with mushrooms and cranberry sauce, believe us, it will turn into a heavenly delicious dish.

Festive Take Away 2016 Order Form

Fresh Oyster with Salsa

Of course, Fresh Seafood on Ice is always our favorite thanks to the fresh seafood in which anything fresher, you have to catch it yourself. During Christmas/New Year, premium seafood such as fresh and juicy oyster is made available so be sure to grab some before they are gone. Do not forget to grab some bites on the limited hot seafood as well such as Oysters Gratinated with Special Sauce.

Yong Chow Fried Rice with 'Silver Fish' in Lotus Leaf

Call us “Asian” (we really are, anyway) but we found the Yong Chow Fried Rice with “Silver Fish” in Lotus Leaf delectable. Maybe it had been a while since we enjoyed 5-star Chinese cuisine and we really missed the aromatic smell and taste from the premium ingredients in the fried rice.

Liquorice Cream Brulee on Chinese Spoon

Due to overwhelming food selection from fresh seafood on ice, Japanese corner, hot trays and action stalls, we usually had little space for desserts but still, we enjoyed mini desserts on spoons prepared by pastry chef with love.
