[Media Invite] Festive Feasting @ Amara Singapore

Come on down to Amara Singapore at Tanjong Pagar to enjoy the festive feasting during Christmas eve, Christmas day, New Year's eve and New Year's day. Here is a preview of some of the festive highlights from Element.

My usual choice of starter from the buffet would be the cold seafood selection, and mainly oysters. Hence, the 'meatless' carpaccio was rather refreshing. Tomato, watermelon, arrugula, balsamic and cheese make such tasty combo.

For something to warm the tummy, the Celeriac Veloute Truffle Oil was rather comforting. Yummy much. At the buffet, diners are welcome to add as much or as little truffle oil as one desires.

With up to 7 live stations at Element for the festivities, I'd be queuing up for foie gras, prepared ala minute. Lovely, wobbly piece of creamy liver.

If you could take a bit of alcohol in food, don't miss out on the Baby Lobster Miso Yaki. This is one of those fusion dish that I actually liked. Chef added a dash of Chinese Rose Wine (玫瑰露) before the lobster is torched to release the fragrance of the wine. Lovely.

The slow-roast turkey with Sze Chuan spicy sauce was interesting. A touch of spice with a sharp edge yet it grows on you, the more we eat. Our dish was  beautifully plated by Chef Jason and it looked like a garden. Am not a fan of turkey meat, hence the sauce was handy to provide a tad of moisture to the otherwise, dryer meat.

For dessert, we had a taste of Japanese Cheese Log Cake. Soft and light, with a touch of matcha inside.
