Nothing brings people together more than a table brimming with food and drinks – and these festive treats by Paradox Singapore Merchant Court at Clarke Quay promise to be the key to achieving your best spread yet.
For a grand feast at home, opt for the Local Touch of Christmas bundle, which incorporates Asian and Peranakan ingredients to an otherwise traditional Christmas feast. Kick off the meal off with some Home-Made Scallop Otak-Otak and River Prawns in Singapore Chilli Crab Sauce, before moving on to the Roasted Dry Rub Nyonya Sambal Turkey and Lemongrass and Hoisin Glazed Gammon Ham.
Alternatively, take a well-deserved pause in the afternoon for nibbles at Crossroads Bar, where you can tuck into a Nutcracker-Themed afternoon tea. The Sugarplum Fairy, for instance, is a peppermint meringue with macadamia sable and a healthy dollop of coconut frosting. Savoury bites include hand sandwiches and treats like the Prawn Thermidor Tartlet and the Smoked Salmon and Leek Quiche.
Crossroads Bar is also serving up celebratory drinks in the form of mocktails and cocktails. A shade of striking green, the Pine n Snow mocktail is a creamy concoction of green matcha powder, vanilla ice cream, and yuzu juice. For a more pronounced and spicier taste, indulge in the deep orange Kisseltoe mocktail.
Eat all you can at Ellenborough Market Café’s Festive Buffet line-up to enjoy some Duck Rillette and Foie Gras Pate. There’s also the Thai-Style Pork Collar with Pickles, fresh from the live grill station, then end the feast with a selection of desserts ranging from Gingerbread Panna Cotta and Speculoos Cheesecake, to a Rose Lychee Log Cake and Chocolate Ginger Log Cake.
Finally, add on these tapas plates for the full festive experience: their Smoked Salmon and Leek Quiche is sure to whet your appetite, while the Gratinated Oysters, topped with cheese, bacon, spring onions, and vinegar shallots are far too good to not share.
