[F.T] Christmas with the Intercontinental Hotel Group

Christmas is just round the corner! Have you decided on where to head to for christmas night for a lovely night with your loved ones? :) I was invited to attend A Sparkling Christmas with the Intercontinental Hotels Group namely Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Holiday Inn Atrium, Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre amd Intercontinental Singapore to have a first taste on what they have to offer this festive season! And I must say I'm quite surprised by the menu!

Tandoor from Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre served up an Indian X Christmas menu that was interestingly attractive. This Christmas Mince Pie a la Indiana is a crusty tart filled with dried fruit pudding and topped with a huge star is available on their Festive Gourmet Menu ($58) from 28 November to 1 January!

Tandoori Turkey & Roast Turkey($88++ Each) were baked with aromatic Indian spices for the wonderful flavour, definitely a different take on turkey this year!

Man Fu Yuan from Intercontinental Singapore has chose to Embrace the chinese in us (if you are a chinese) this festive season by serving up their Winter Solstice Festive Menu. Heartwarming dishes like the Claypot Rice ($12++ per pax) which allows diners to customize their own claypot rice with the many toppings available, for example: salted fish, Chicken, preserved duck etc.

If your elders do not like turkey, have a switch and try this Stew Duck with Yam! Tender pieces of duck meat and the melt in your mouth Yam pieces are sure to please them! 

The Nonya Assam Chilli Turkey by Chef Eric Neo of Intercontinental Singapore was my favourite that night! Surprisingly tender and flavourful turkey which taste a little like our Curry chicken. Yums!

For a Seafood Lover, I could not resist having seconds at the Holiday Inn Atrium The Melting Pot Cafe's Booth that night. Their Pan-seared Scallop on Fennel with a hint of Pernod Cream was refreshing and Huge! Yes, the plus sized scallops was topped with crispy rice krispies which added an additional punch to it!

And Of course, Which Christmas Party could do without a Log Cake? Festive Sweets are available as well, do check out what the Intercontinental Hotels Group have to offer!

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport's White Forest Log Cake ($62) is as good as it sounds! Velvety Smooth White Chocolate Mousse, filled with dark Cherries and Vanilla Beans, mmmm.. Sounds good enough for me to dive in!

Are things sweetening up this christmas for you? Personally I can't wait for christmas to come!
Merry Christmas Everyone! :)

With Love, M
