Festive Buffet Lunch and Dinner – 17 November to 30 December 2018
You must give PARKROYAL on Pickering’s Hainanese Poached Turkey with Fragrant Rice a try. The tender turkey is inspired by our national dish – chicken rice. The fragrant rice boasts the familiar flavours of garlic, ginger and scallions. Accompanied by dark soy sauce and homemade chilli sauce, the turkey with rice will definitely win over the older folks too, as they won’t find this Asian-style turkey too ‘ang moh’. It will be a winner at your Christmas dinner.
If you still prefer the classic turkey, the Roasted Turkey with Chestnut Stuffing is perfect for you. It is roasted to perfection — succulent, tender and flavourful. You can choose the traditional sauce or sze chuan pepper BBQ sauce to go with your turkey. All turkeys ($118/each) are available for takeaway.
The Beef Rossini, which is only available during dinner, is a wonderful surprise. It is a very tender and juicy cut of beef!
Besides the turkey, some of my other favourites at the buffet counter include Oven Baked Pork Prime Rib with Spicy Tomato Paste, Baby Lobster Laksa, Pistachio Dusted Lamb Chop and Christmas Pasta with Chilli Crab Sauce. The Baby Lobster Laksa gravy rocked a nice vibrant orange. Imagine tender and sweet lobster flesh that has sufficiently absorbed the thick and mildly spicy gravy which carries a strong dried shrimp flavour. So good! If you need a refreshing thirst-quencher, the Jiggly Lime Christmas drink will do the trick.
Lunch: $68 (Monday – Saturday), from $98 (Sunday) and Dinner: $98
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Brunch & Dinner – 24 & 25 December 2018
With the celebration reaching a crescendo by this time, Lime Restaurant is pulling out all the stops with brunch and dinner seatings available on both days, and carollers performing live.
Joining the extensive Festive Buffet line-up are Italian Bocconcini with Cherry Tomato Salad, Roasted Beef Cheek with Juniper Berries, Red Wine Jus & Red Pepper Corn, 12-Hour Slow Roasted Rack of Lamb in Garlic & Thyme Jus, Honey & Citrus Glazed Gammon Ham, and Wagyu Beef Sirloin with condiments.
The 12-hour slow roasted rack of lamb blew my mind. The marriage of thyme and lamb was subtle but beautiful. No, it didn’t have any gaminess! Instead, it was very savoury, and had a mineral taste, like that of an aged steak. The lamb was really delicious! Still not a fan? The Roasted Thyme Peppered Duck Breast with Orange Duck Jus might tickle your tastebuds.
A festive feast is never complete without Christmas desserts. With no less than four variations of Christmas log cakes, those with a sweet tooth might have a problem deciding which is their favourite. Fans of the Pandan & Coconut Logcake, and Durian Gula Melaka Yule Log from last year’s catalogue can look forward to their return. Lime is also introducing the Black Forest Yuletide Log and Belgium Dark Chocolate with Yuzu Yule Log for those who have a penchant for the classics. These are available for takeaway as well.
I’m a huge fan of their Pandan & Coconut logcake because it is soft and eggy, with an enchanting fragrance of kaya. I experienced love at first bite with it. But little did I know that the Black Forest Yuletide Log was going to be even better. Stealing the limelight, and the show, the new creation is built with extremely moist chocolate layers that literally melt in your mouth.
Making a special two-day appearance on the buffet line is the Christmas Pavlova, Yuletide Logs, and Pannetone Pudding with Gingerbread Vanilla Sauce. The pavlova is as light as feather, and loaded with colourful fruits. It is the perfect meringue dessert for the festive season. Take the indulgence up a notch with a boozy upgrade that offers bottomless Piper Heidsieck Champagne, house pour wine, beer, juices and soft drinks, from $158++.
