We decided to go Melt the World Cafe for our Christmas buffet dinner. The elegant hotel was decked up beautifully for Christmas, and this added a festive touch to the usual sleek, chic settings. The multi-cultural buffet spread was satisfying, and I was happy to see the important things such as turkey, pork knuckles, logcake etc that contributed to the festive meal this season.
So, the exploration began with the station that serves the Turkey and Pork Knuckle - both looked tantalizing. I pegged this as the station I must go to. The pork knuckle was crispy. The turkey was very succulent to both our surprise - no joke, none of that rough texture we get usually when chewing on turkey flesh. The cranberry sauce was a fabulous accompaniment.
Then there were the Asian food sections - with their hearty display of traditional Indian dishes at one counter, Thai food at another counter, and then the Chinese food counter with soups as well. I had the irresistable bowl of Black Chicken Herbal soup - lightly infused with herbal taste, but the perfect thing on a cold evening as such.
Next, the Seafood section. I finally settled down with a plate of seafood comprising of lobster, scallops, oysters, crayfish, clams and prawns. The seafood was rather fresh.
Last but not least, my favorite Desserts corner - with a large variety of macaroons, waffles, cakes, tarts, pies, Chinese cakes (kuehs) and fruits etc. I had the Pistachio macaroon (had thought it was green tea- but turned out alot nicer!), a minced fruit meat pie, chocolates in shape of tree trunk sections, lemon tart, fruit cake etc. Everything was a delicious palate sweetener
