A Brilliant Christmas (and New Year) Feast | Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel


Christmas and the New Year is round the corner again and there goes another year
Have you arranged for a festive feast yet?


I attended a festive tasting session at the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel last month which showcases the various delicacies being served over the festive season including Christmas and New Year. I shall not go on the details of the dish as Christmas feasts are quite standard with the classics like Roasted Turkey, Baked Ham and Logcakes, many of these are covered extensively by fellow food bloggers and magazines too.


So, I am going to show you some pictures!
Such as cupcakes, appetizers that you can look forward to....


Like yummy prosciutto to enjoy with some melon slices. They also have a delicious meat pate.



But the highlight of the buffets and feasts at the Marriott Singapore Tang Plaza Hotel are these:
delicious Oyster Florentine with plump oysters and cheese gratin and spinach,


or salt-crusted baked salmon served in a delicate cream sauce.


or a Seafood Paella complete with mussels and prawns. However, these are only the appetizers, to the real stars I feel,


The star of the upcoming Christmas eve, Christmas and New Year feasts are these: the Signature Roast Pork Saddle stuffed with Pancetta Prunes and Mixed Herbs for example. 


If you enjoy pork, this is pretty good, with a nice crackling skin and tender meat.


Then there is the Rosemary Roast Lamb Leg served with Mint Demi-Glace.


What is a festive buffet without some good old classic Slow-Roasted Australian Beef Prime Ribs?
This should go with a good glass of red wine. The dinner buffets on the 24th and 31st December as well as the lunch and dinner buffets on the 25th December include free flow red and white wines too! New Year's Eve Dinner Buffet even comes with champagne :)


My favourite however, is the Honey & Clove Glazed Ham, good ham, great sauce. Juicy, tender, yummy, all the synonyms you can throw in for "delicious" is in there, or maybe I am just drawn to the warm comfort of a good ham that reminded me of the lively family festive dinner my family used to have long time ago. Like the Pork Saddle and the Lam Leg, you could still order it but it has to be 3 working days in advance.


Hmmmm, good ham.


Too much meat and too heavy for the palate, there are creamed spinach, roasted vegetables and potato mash to go along with it. (and maybe more alcohol)


Okay, done with the meats it is time for the sweets.


There is a new chef in town so he has brought us some new pastry creations for the festive season.
It is a bit of a hit and miss to me though, however if you like any of the flavours, it might be something you would enjoy more than me. If you like Raspberry, then there is a Raspberry Gula Melaka Coconut Log Cake. I myself prefer the Roasted Pistachio Cream Cheese Log Cake which is a little less sweet, and there are pistachios :) . Flavourwise, the Raspberry Gula Melaka Coconut Log Cake is more conventional than the Pistachio one.


That is not all, if I really want to pick, then the White Forest Bûche de Noël is my favourite among the cakes I had from Marriott. Not too sweet, pleasantly presented and something enjoyable by the everyone in the family too. I enjoyed this with a cup of kopi, it went quite well together.


The year is coming to an end soon, do check out the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel's festive offerings. You can find out more here at their website with the pricing and all:
