There are 12 months in a year and of all the months, December have always been like a marathon filled with delicious food for me to savour. We are only midways through the month and I’ve already lost count of the no. of buffets and festive gatherings I have attended. This time around I’m featuring the Christmas and New Year’s Eve buffet at Big Apple Restaurant in Berjaya Times Square Hotel. The buffet are served on selected dates only and are as follows ; Christmas Eve Buffet Dinner on 24 December 2017, Christmas Hi-Tea Brunch on 25 December 2017 & New Year’s Eve Buffet Dinner on 31 December 2017.
The Christmas Eve & Christmas Day buffet is themed around the characters of Pocotee & Friends, perfect for fans of them. However, if you’re not … fret not as there will also be lucky prizes to be won such as fashionable bracelets of finest artwork sponsored by 97’s, beautifully crafted madeleine dessert tower by L’ange Petit Patisserie, hotel stay vouchers and hotel dining vouchers.
The spread this year includes traditional Christmas dishes such as Roasted Whole Turkey with stuffing of glazed root vegetables- carrot, radish and candied sweet potato; Slow Roast NZ Sirloin Beef, Onion quiche, Vol Au Vin with Mushroom Ragout, Classic Lasagna Au Forno-Chicken. For the sweet tooths, there are plenty of desserts such as traditional Christmas Puddings, dark chocolate yule log, minced pie, stollen and pannetone.
Other than these, there are various other dishes from the spread with something for everyone! But my absolute favourite is the freshest seafood on ice which includes half shell fresh oyster, scallop, giant clams, green lip mussels, bamboo clam, prawns, salmon and tuna sashimi.
