Christmas 2018 – An illuminating Christmas at Pan Pacific Singapore

Christmas is but just over a month away. Are you ready for all the festivities!??!?!? Based on years of experience, do not wait till Christmas Eve or Christmas Day to celebrate the day, because the precious day just goes so fast. IMHO, you need to get into the Christmas spirit now! Start soaking in the festivities now, because before you know it, January will descend upon us like a ton of bricks.

So that means meeting up with friends over Christmas afternoon tea and Christmas dinner, walking down Orchard Road to see the Christmas Lights (it’ll still be fun even if you aren’t a fan of Disney) and stocking up on Christmas cookies and log cake. If you’re thinking of buying a real live Christmas tree but not sure about it, I say go for it. The smell of fresh pine is incredible, and even if you do not decorate it with a single ornament, your house will still smell of Christmas.

In the next few days I will be featuring places to get your Christmas goodies or have your Christmas Eve / Christmas Day lunch or dinner. Scroll down to read more!

Fans of Edge will be glad to know that the dinner buffet has been revamped and now boasts the following additions:

  • Double boiled soups station – 8 classic double-boiled soups will be available on rotation daily (Ginseng Chicken Soup, Lotus Root with Cuttlefish Pork Bone, Apple-Pear Pork Soup with Bitter and Sweet Almonds etc)

  • Enhanced seafood station – You can now DIY your own seafood in a cup
  • New Amuse Bouche – Truffle Scented Green Soba, Udon with Goma Dressing and Unagi with Confit Potato

Edge - Revamped Dinner Buffet

I think the double-boiled soups and Teh Tarik in particular would appeal to the older generation, so if you are looking for a dinner buffet venue for multi-generational families, this might just be the place.

Hai Tien Lo 24 Claypot Specialities Promotion–It’s back again!

[Media Invite]

Fans of Pan Pacific Hotel’s Hai Tien Lo Claypot dishes will be glad to know that the claypot promotion is back again, but only from now until 31 August 2018. The last time it was rolled out was in 2016, so don’t delay or you might have to wait another couple of years. This time round, you can choose any 2 claypot dishes for $38.80, a few dollars more expensive than back in 2016. It’s actually not a bad way to sample a variety of dishes that Hai Tien Lo has to offer, as compared to ordering from the usual menu.

Hai Tien Lo - Claypot Specialties

I had the opportunity to sample around 10 of the 24 claypot specialities, and I have to applaud Executive Chef Lai Tong Ping because I liked all of the dishes I tried. If I had to choose, I would say that the Claypot Pork Shoulder with Assorted Bell Peppers in Truffle Oil is probably my favourite. The pork shoulder cut has always been my go to cut when I cook myself, as it is meaty and very tender and I’m sure this was the reason why Chef Lai used this cut in the dish as well. Tender pork plus crisp bell peppers with just a touch of truffle oil, I could have finished the entire claypot myself.
