Pheww, I can't believe it that it's November already. Which means that we are approaching the end of 2015. To welcome the year-end festivities, Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel is offering an extensive and exciting array of festive buffets.
Highlights of the Marriott Thanksgiving and Christmas Magic Menu are: Roast Turkey with Chestnut Stuffing. The turkey was evenly roasted as I tried both the breast and thigh meat. Both were tender and succulent, yum! While stuffing helps to seasoned the turkey, it also soaks up the juice from the turkey when it was roasted. If you are a fan of turkey stuffing, I must say, it was one of the better one. Shaped like a meatloaf or pate, it goes will with bread or with the meat itself.

Prune & Pancetta Stuffed Roasted Pork Saddle. Pork crackling, one of my favourite festive food. The prune and pancetta flavours are infused into the meat and thanks to the skin that cover most of the surface of the meat, it retain its moist and tenderness. Not forgetting the crackling was thin and crispy. Yum Yum

San Daniele Parma Ham, Pork Rillettes and Foie Gras Royal & Fig Coulis. No introduction needed for this parma ham. It is smooth, paper thin and lightly salted taste make a good companion for the sliced rock melon. The pork rillettes have a nice balance between the intense flavour of the meat and fats. Instead of feeling yucky from the fats, it act as binder to the shredded pork and make it stick to anything that you applied it on. The Foie gras royal is just Yum. Smooth, velvety and creamy, the fig and foie gras just work well together.

Mash Potatoes and Lobster Bisque. The mash here is one of the smoothest and creamiest mash potatoes that I ever had. It is addictive, and most of us on the table went back for second servings. One of the best dish of the night. The lobster bisque is robust with a hint of bitterness, just as what you expect any good lobster bisque.

For desserts, Marriott Kaya Namachoco Yule Logcake and Strawberry Cream Raspberry Lychee are a must try. Although the kaya flavour in the logcake is very subtle, the asian inspired choco flavour was just a delightful with the log cake. The Strawberry Cream Raspberry Lychee Jelly is easy on the palate and will definitely be a crowd favourite.
