[Media Invite] Winter Wonderland @ Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Be mesmerized by this year's Christmas decorations as Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel has specially flown in replica of famous trains in Switzerland like the Bernina Express and the Rhaetian Railway. A first in Singapore.

Walk into the lobby and one could view an elevated platform of snowy alps with railway tracks running through it, complete with gingerbread houses (non-edible!) and a Christmas tree perched atop the white mountain.

It was pretty fun (possibly therapeutic) watching the train moving on its track before it disappears out of view and then back again. Love the tiny fir trees decorating the snowy mountain.

Food Capital - Dazzling Festive Buffet

Executive Chef, David Toh and his dedicated culinary team have prepared a dazzling array of festive delights to tantalize our taste buds.

Honey Baked Ham
Bone-in Gammon Ham

I love love the bone-in Gammon Ham. This is one of the item that I look forward to, during Christmas feasting. Succulent, moist and so yummy. Leftovers, makes a darn good sandwich.

Baked Australian Lamb Rack

My goodness, the baked Australian lamb rack was so delicious. Pinkish meat, baked to tender perfection, tasted of natural flavours and non gamey. Delightful chew. Paired well with delicious, juicy red wine.

Roast Beef Sirloin with Mixed Spices
Thick slab of medium cooked roast beef. Topped with red wine jus reduction. What a meaty galore! This would rank at the top 3 choices of meat from this festive buffet.

Traditional Marinated Whole Turkey

I tried the Baked Cordon Bleu Turkey which has portobello mushroom, turkey breast and wrapped in puff pastry. If I didn't look at the menu, one might not know that there's turkey meat in there.

And, it is an absolute must to try the dessert.

Traditional Valrhona Alpaco 66& Chocolate Log Cake

I adore the Valrhona Chocolate Log Cake. The crunchy bits were so satisfying. The green tea pound cake makes a good pair with hot coffee. Rich and buttery.
