Crossroads Cafe – New Menu available including Impossible burger!

Marriott Crossroads Cafe - Steak Frites T-Bone (900gm-1kg) - $168

Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel’s Crossroads Cafe has recently launched new items to its menu. As the name suggests, Crossroads Cafe is located at at the crossroads of Orchard Road. It’s so conveniently located that it’s always bustling no matter the time of the day. Even the tourists and Marriott’s hotel guests who flock to the cafe know that it is the place to people watch while downing a cold drink or having a meal. It may be called a cafe but with its East-meets-West menu, you can get proper meals here such as steaks, pastas, burgers, local delights like hor fun, salads and even oysters.

I was recently invited to sample the new dishes that Crossroads Cafe has come up with. Scroll down to find out more.

New and unique dim sum dishes only for a short time at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Wan Hao Restaurant

[Media Invite]

Hands up those who looooove dim sum???? I did a poll recently and most people voted that dim sum is good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I certainly could eat dim sum at any time of the day. But the thing is, most places these days stick to the tried and tested dim sum dishes, so it is quite exciting to be able to find something new when it comes to dim sum.

For a short time only, April to be exact, Wan Hao Restaurant at Marriot Hotel will be offering up some unique dim sum creations that are worth checking out.

Christmas 2018–Attractively-priced Festive semi-buffets at Four Seasons Hotel

Gosh has it been 6 years? Four Seasons Hotel will always hold a soft spot in my heart because that’s where we got married just under 6 years ago. I’ve only been back once since, for my cousin’s wedding a couple of years back (the elegant Grand Ballroom’s floor to ceiling glass wall is just hard to resist). So happy to be able to revisit once again. I hear the rooms have undergone a refurbishment, I would certainly be keen to check them out. I remember being very impressed with the classy decor back then.

What’s impressive too is the Christmas spread that will be dished up to diners during this Christmas festive season. If you’re having any of the festive buffets at One-Ninety Restaurant, you must check out things like the duck liver parfait with Jamon, the chestnut soup, the fresh seafood spread and the turkey. I don’t think I’ve ever come across chestnut soup before, but the chestnut soup that night was so memorable, it’s a wonder why this velvety and earthy soup isn’t more widely available. It was so good, I’ve since bought a packet of chestnuts to hopefully recreate a similar tasting soup at home. The seafood spread needs no introduction except for me to say that it was very fresh. And as for the turkey, don’t skip it because this is one very tender version. The buffet spread also features high quality imported cheeses from France and Italy.

If you feel a full buffet is just too much to indulge in and too painful on the wallet, Four Season’s Festive Semi-Buffets are worth considering. For example they have the following semi-buffets in addition to full-buffets and set courses:

  • Festive Semi-Buffet Lunch (3-30 Dec 2018 except Christmas/New Year’s  Day) – $58/adult
  • Christmas Eve Semi-Buffet Dinner (24 Dec 2018) – $128/adult
  • Christmas Day Semi-Buffet Dinner (25 Dec 2018) – $88/adult
  • New Year’s Day Semi Buffet Brunch (1 Jan 2019) – $88/adult

I’ve been looking at Christmas buffet pricings of various hotels and for a top-tier hotel, this is a tad cheaper than if you were to go for full buffets! So you still get to bask in the Christmassy atmosphere but at a “discount”. Scroll down for a selection of photos from the Christmas buffet.
