People watch with Tortilla Wraps at Marriott Hotel’s Crossroads Cafe

[Media Invite]

You know they say much has changed in Orchard Road as compared to a decade or two ago. Aside from the fact that so many new malls have sprung up, and the older malls having had a complete facade overhaul, even long standing shops have moved on and been replaced with newer ones.

But one place that has retained its prominent spot along Orchard Road is Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel’s Crossroads Cafe. I can recall walking pass the al-fresco Crossroads Cafe numerous times when going to Far East Plaza was then the in thing. It was always chockfull of people and still is even until today. If you think that the F&B industry is fickle, take a leaf out of Crossroads Cafe’s experience!

However, even though it looked like a great spot to people watch, it never crossed my mind to enter this place. I had this impression that you’d only go there if you wanted an alcoholic drink, given that so many Caucasians frequent Crossroads Cafe, and are often seen holding wine glasses or beer bottles.

But recently, I found out that Crossroads Cafe serves a full-fledge bistro menu. Think dishes like salads, burgers, pasta, steaks, breakfast and even local food such as Hokkien Mee and Char Kuay Teow! The menu is pretty extensive actually, you can purview it on Crossroads Cafe’s website here.

Marriott Crossroads Cafe - $Iberico Pork Secreto $35

If you feel like you might now want to visit Crossroads Cafe, now’s a good time to go because Crossroads Cafe is currently having an Indulgent Tortilla Wraps promotion from now until 30 June 2018. For about $30 – $35 ++, you can select from one of 5 different tortilla wraps. The torilla wraps will be served platter style to facilitate sharing, with the tortilla sheets separate from the ingredients so that you can customise your own tortillas.

The five flavours on offer are

White Asparagus season again at Marriott’s Pool Grill

[Media Invite]

Is it White Asparagus season again??? Because if so, it’s time to eat more while it’s still available! If you love green asparagus, you will love the milder, sweeter and more tender white asparagus even more. If you don’t love green asparagus, why then you will change your mind after you’ve had the white version! Might I also add that asparagus is high in antioxidants, B vitamins and iron? Btw they are white simply due to the growing process where they are covered fully in the dark and hence they lack chlorophyll.

[Media Invite]

Kam's Roast - Whole Roast Duck, Iberico Char Siu, Crispy Roast Pork

Prosperity Trio (Whole Roast Duck, Iberico Char Siu, Crispy Roast Pork) – $108 (Takeaway only)

How about living it up this Chinese New Year by getting Kam’s Roast Golden Duck flecked with 22-carat edible French Gold Flakes? Kam’s Roast usual Roast Duck costs $66, but if you want the Golden Duck, it costs $88. OK I guess most people would go for the original Roast Duck to save $22, but the Golden Duck might actually be a good gift for your business clients if you had to get a CNY gift for them!

[Media Invite]

Are you a fan of the MasterChef series? Ever wanted to dine with the accomplished chef participants, or even with the judge? Well now you can spend a culinary evening with Audra Morrice. She was a finalist on MasterChef Australia in 2012and is now a resident judge on MasterChef Asia. Since then, she’s gone on to start her own catering business, launched a range of natural, gluten-free jams, and even authored cookbooks.

From 26 October to 29 October 2017 only, you can enjoy a 5-course Wine pairing dinner featuring the best of Australian produce prepared in Audra’s signature eclectic Asian cooking style. The ever friendly and bubbly Audra will be mingling amongst the diners, taking pictures and signing autographs of course. And in case you were wondering why Audra isn’t cooking, well remember that much of the food needs to be prepped even prior to the dinner service.

Pool Grill, Level 5
26 to 29 October 2017

5-Course Wine Dinner
6.45pm to 9.30pm $128nett per person (Inclusive of canapés and wines)

$128nett is really not a bad price considering it’s Marriott Hotel, and you get 5 wines. Quite a deal actually! Check out sneak peeks of the food I tried yesterday. Needless to say, the food was really enjoyable, and the star of the show for me has got to be the melt in the mouth beef short ribs. I’ve dined at Pool Grill a number of times, and never have I had a bad meal there. Scroll down for the video for exactly how tender the beef was.
