Ellenborough Market Cafe is synonymous with excellent Peranakan cuisine, but did you know the buffet offers splendid Christmas dishes too? From now till 31st December 2017, bask in jubilation of the holiday season and indulge in divine yuletide offerings, which are available for both lunch and dinner.
Awaken your palate with a bowl of smooth and sweet Pumpkin Soup. Upping the luxe factor is generous chucks of succulent crab meat which lent more sweetness to the healthy soup.
Braised for hours to melt-in-the-mouth tender, the Oxtail Stew captivates the taste buds with its medley of herbs and spices.
My dining companions and I took fancy to the Roasted Sze Chuan Flavoured Tom Turkey, a new dish that joins the buffet spread this year. The Sze Chuan marinated bird is paired with a sauce reminiscent of Hainanese Chicken Rice Chilli sauce, which definitely made its warm presence known. Truly a smack down on flavours! If you prefer a traditional turkey, there’s Roasted Turkey Breast with Cranberry sauce and turkey jus.
There’s nothing groundbreaking about the Honey Baked Ham with Pineapple Glaze, but there’s no denial that this is a classic Christmas dish that exemplifies timeless comfort.
Do save some tummy space for other superb dishes such Fresh Seafood on Ice, Ayam Buah Leluak, Homemade Kueh Pie Tie, Stired-fried Slipper Lobster in Black Bean Sauce and Herbal Prawns.
Complete your feast on a sweet note with the Strawberry Yogurt Yule Log, which is light on the palate but weights heavily on the mind with its teasing combination of zesty strawberries and tangy yogurt. The Christmas Stollen is a must for foodies with a sweet tooth.
Apart from Christmas sweet treats, Ellenborough Market Cafe also offers their signature Durian Pengat, a rich and intense dessert that will send your taste buds dancing with elation. Certainly worth the calories!
