Bay Hotel Singapore, 50 Telok Blangah Road, Singapore 098828, +65 6818 6681
Operating Hours: 6am to 4am, Breakfast - 6 to 10.30am, All Day Dining - 11.30am to 10.30pm
Earl Grey Tea & Ginger Lemongrass Tea, $6 each
(Their teabag is really cute. The string attached to the teabag is a wire in the shape of a leave, so you can twist the wire & hang it on the tip of the cup without having to worry the teabag will fall out when you drink from the cup. Innovative~)
For a start, have a go at their complimentary bread basket with olive oil & balsamic vinegar. Totally love their bread assortments.
Tom Yam Flair $18
Crayfish, Scallops, Mussels, Squids, Thai herbs & wine in a mild Tom Yam cream
(This is not part of the buffet menu, but the organiser say we MUST try it because it is their in-house recommendation. So totally agree~ Mild tomyam flavour in their cream sauce which doesn't make you feel 'gelat' after a few mouth. I can so eat the whole plate at one go!!)
So now, introducing to you the 6 exclusive special dishes for this upcoming Christmas & New Year Glitter Buffet menu.
Langoustine with Thai Pomelo Salsa
Like fireworks on your palate, the natural sweetness of the langoustine paired with an explosion of juicy pomelo pulp, citrusy lime juice and Thai spices are sure to start your celebration on a sizzling note.
(This has a very refreshing unique taste, does well as an appetiser)
The Asparagus & White Fungus Barigoule
An inspiration from traditional French style Artichokes Barigoule. The sweetness of asparagus, and the white fungus crispy crunch is accompanied by white wine for more depth and flavour, making this a refreshing appetizer
Tandoori Turkey Breast
Marinated overnight with a generous amount of tandoori spices then oven-baked to the perfect level of tenderness, you can expect a succulent, savoury and tandoori-perfumed fowl that engulfs your taste buds with every bite. A cucumber & mint raita makes the best match for this turkey.
(This is my FAVOURITE of the 6!! A pleasant surprise when I had a bite at this. Tender juicy turkey meat with the hinge of the Indian Tandoori flavour, a dish with a unique Asian twist)
Oxtail with Guinness Stout & Espagnole sauce
The tender oxtail is drenched with a mix of demi-glace with tomatoes and a caramelized mixture of minced carrots, onions and shallots gives you a thick, dark and flavourful gravy. For an extra boost of flavour, port wine and Guinness Stout are added to give a bitter-sweet aftertaste
Bread & Butter Pudding with Ginger, Longan & Vanilla Brandy Sauce
This heart-warming pudding has longan cubes with ginger puree added for a sweet, gingery twist. Oven-baked till golden brown, the exposed edges of the bread are crispy and fragrant. Pair this with our homemade vanilla brandy sauce, we are certain this will put a smile on your face.
(A good dessert to warm the tummy after a hearty meal, love the slight gingery fragrance)
Durian Trifle
Made from fresh durian pulp, durian custard and layered sponge
(Rich Durian sponge cake, totally for the Durian lovers)
