Christmas bells ringing, baubles glistening

Indulge At Park @ Grand Park City Hall, 10 Coleman Street Singapore 179809

I was honored to be invited to grace the occasion for some early Christmas feasting, albeit a tasting review session. Presented at the buffet spread was purely holly jolly Christmas themed selections; and they’re rolled out for the entire mount of December.

Given the widespread festive selections, I would consider the pricing to be quite a good deal. You would find the pricing towards the end.

Here’s a glimpse of what are the goodies for the foodies for the night:

grand-park-city-hall-seafoodSeafood on ice was already something of an eye opener, fresh shucked Canadian lobsters, mussels, slipper lobsters, live prawn, king crab legs, flower crabs etc

Sushi & sashimi featured cuts like; tuna, salmon, octopus, hamachi & several maki rolls.

Appetizers came in the form of; sesame crusted salmon tataki, smoked duck breast w/ kumquat chutney, live prawns w/ mango salsa

grand-park-city-hall-appetisersThere was also quite a neat variety of Internationl cheese, accompanied with dried fruits, nuts, house baked breads & crackers

The salad bar was not as typical, for it featured quite a bit of rare greens, roots & pickles, as wells as oils & dressings

grand-park-city-hall-beef-foiegrasExpect to be pampered with tongue whetting delights in the likes of  the  ala minute; pan seared foie gra w/ maple balsamic & sautéed apple strawberry, and/or, braised wagyu chuck short ribs w/ horseradish potato foam & rosemary olive caviar

Christmas will not be Christmas without the joys of every meatarian;

grand-park-city-hall-meatsSlow roasted Spanish baby suckling pic w/ apple sauce is apparently a hot favorites, I’d admit that I was among the culprits for sweeping the platter fast.

Slow roasted beef ribeye w/ truffle & Yorkshire pudding is a pretty filling dish, so remember to pace yourselves if you’re going for mileage.

In my opinion, the Asian flavored roasted turkey w/ cumin & hazelnut sauce was my winner. It’s familiar, yet not so familiar, and the doneness of the flesh was all good. I could’ve gone all night cleaning the meat off the bones.

5 spices glazed boneless gammon ham is another familiar highlight during Christmas, crunch is good.

Other hot mains on the line I find mention worthy are as follows:

grand-park-city-hall-hot-mainsApple glazed pork neck wrapped w/ pork fat net – nobody watches their weight & waistline during Christmas! Eat & you shall live!

Oreo & macadamia nut crust coated rack of lamb – something with a twist, not too sweet, yet, not as gamy as you’d expect.

Braised stuffed rabbit leg w/ walnut, presecco, dried cherries & apricot – for once, it’s not needed to be in survivor mode to finally taste rabbit

grand-park-city-hall-dessertsAnyone with a sweet tooth would be spoilt rotten with the abundance of confections & desserts laid out. I suppose is something unique, because it’d be sure to keep the young ones rooted & stuffing their faces.

What you’d be expecting to be splashing to enjoy the above mentioned. I’ve been given to understand that there will be special cuts & additions to the spread for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & New Years Eve.
