East-meets-West Christmas Buffet

Full review on http://dairycream.blogspot.sg/2014/12/crowne-plaza-changi-airport-festive.html

The highlight of the yuletide buffet dinner is none other than the Festive Baked Turkey with Angelica Root, a unique creation by Chef Andrew who likes to infuse an oriental touch to Western cuisine and vice versa. Rubbed with Angelica Root powder, this massive 5-kg turkey is probably the most nourishing version I've ever had.  Fusion cooking here never quite lapsed into outlandishness as the Sweet Potato Marshmallow Gratin proved another experimental success. Another surprise was the Pan-Seared Scallops which might looked like those steamed garlic versions typically served at Chinese dining restaurants. 

Desserts The Yuzu log cake is composed on a smooth buttery Varlhona Dulce mousse which tasted unexpectedly light since it was inspired from milk jam, but I am contented with the sweetness and the subtly bitter yuzu gelee. Nonetheless, the hazelnut dacquoise was in a bit of excess compared to the thin feuilettine rested atop that delivered very little crunch. The Eggnog Pannacotta is spiked with Martell brandy. Every mouthful is magically light, creamy without being too rich or boozy, with subtle waves of lemongrass fragrance that envelops the palates.

Tremendous Black Angus Buffet

Visit www.celestialdelish.com/2014/03/Tremendous-Black-Angus-Buffet-at-Azur.html for more info.

This March, the award-winning buffet and ala carte resturant, Azur located at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport offers diners an all-you-can-eat Black Angus dinner experience with premium beef imported from the United States, cooked to perfection in a variety of styles.

The dinner feast will also include the finest seafood and a multitude of desserts.


Alaskan Snow Crab Leg 
Diners can also dig into fresh seafood on ice with the popular Alaskan Snow Crab Leg making a much welcome re-appearance at the seafood bar along with Poached Tiger Prawns, Dutch Black Mussels, Half Shell Scallops and Freshly Shucked House Oysters.

Sesame Black Angus Beef Salad with Red Radish 
Loves the thinly sliced medium-rare sirloin, which make it really tender and juicy. The fats are trimmed off after the sirloin is pan seared to avoid over oiliness. Dulcified with aromatic sesame sauce, crunchy red radish, lotus root and edamame. The combination lends a delightful twist and seemingly divinely intervened!

Wok Fried Black Angus Short Ribs with Black Pepper 
Sliced Black Angus Short Rib is succulent and tender. However it will be perfect if the Azur's homemade black pepper sauce could be more peppery and robust flavour.

Grilled Black Angus Beef Steak with Forest Mushroom Ragout
Rich and evocative of the forest, the mushrooms (portobello, champignon and trumpet mushrooms) will work their magic in everything from a creamy ragout to a earthy broth. Perfect for mushroom lovers.

Braised Beef Cheek with Root Vegetables 
Decadent, fork-tender beef cheek are a crowd favourite. It fills the house with mouthwatering aromatic root vegetables consisting of baby carrot, turnip, parsnip and celeriac. The beef exits the full-flavored, you will be rewarded with super tender and moist dish.

The The Tremendous Black Angus Buffet is priced at $68++ per pax from 29 March - 6 April 2014.

Best Buffet in Singapore

I have never liked buffets.  I tend to over-eat and the quality is never that great.  In other words, never very good value for money.  Azur has left a different impression on me, however.  It is my favourite buffet so far. Azur, as the name suggests, is awashed in calming shades of blue and aqua.  On the walls are terracotta vases. First off, they use Royal Bone China tableware. Wow, Royal Bone China tableware in a buffet.  The china is fine, not clunky like in many places. The buffet has a good mix of Asian and Western dishes—there is Chinese, Western Roast, Chinese roast, Japanese (cold soba, sushi, sashimi), Indian, Italian, Indonesian etc. The oysters, clams, mussels  are all very fresh.

The mushroom soup was very competently done. The bread was very good quality.  They didn’t overlook a small thing like bread.  Very nice. I also tried the Waldorf salad and squid salad.  Both are very nice.   Next was the sashimi.  It was very fresh. I tried the cold soba.  It was ok.  It could have been colder though. Seafood Jumbalaya—there were many tiger prawns and mussels in it and they were very fresh.

Azur @ Crowne Plaza Hotel

Well-known for its proximity to Changi Airport and its award-winning buffet, Azur Restaurant offers an extensive spread of Western and Asian signature numbers for both its local and foreign guests. The culinary team at Azur places strong emphasis on the quality and freshness of every dish; each being  freshly cooked in the kitchen before being served on the buffet counters.

Backlit shells on a table of ice make up Azur’s bunch of Seafood. Nothing too exotic but a little more than the expected luxuries are present: poached scallops on shell; poached prawns with shells in whole; mussells, poached too; skinny flower crab legs; oysters, the only raw creature in this section, considerably fresh; and surprise – fresh maine lobsters, tasty even if a tad overcooked. The lobsters were surprisingly untouched but more importantly, one wonders where their claws are.

Cooked till a nice warm pink centre, the Roast Beef buckled easily to the fork and knife- demonstrating its perfectly tender texture. Drizzled with brown gravy when served, it helped to endow the beef with an additional hit of richness but it could be well had on its own, given how gratifyingly meaty sweet it already was.

Well- liked by the crowd, the execution of the Baked Fish Fillet with Citrus Mirin Orange Zest was not particularly too heavy and the fish was soft and tender to the bite. The Honey Glazed Yam Potato with Onions and Dried Fruits, though did sound rather exciting to me, was probably done for a little too long as the chopped Yam slices turned out to be quite soft. Also, flavours were rather subdued.

The Asian dishes lay a much stronger impression on me. The Oven Baked Marinated Satay boasted a pungent savoury profile and fared just as well in the textural department, the chunky sauce added flavor and texture to every bite. The Wok Fry Kong Pau Frog Leg with Spring Onion was as good as some of those I have had elsewhere, featuring chewy and succulent meat that was thoroughly marinated with the right balance of salty, spicy and sweet notes.

I found it hard to restrain myself from both the Singapore Style Chilli Crab and the Fish Fillet in Mongolian Style; both that were my favourite numbers for the night. The former was a less spicier version than those available elsewhere, which was understandable given the many foreign tourists who would patronise the restaurant. I still found the sauce to be wonderfully comforting and many were spotted slathering it on their bread. Coated in an appetising tangy spicy dressing, the fish fillets were delightfully crisp on the outside while warm and moist beneath the skin. The Silver Fish Fried Riceboasted fluffy rice grains, but lacked the ‘wok- hei’ aroma most would take pleasure in.
