[Review] Festive Buffet at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore

December 07, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Savouring good food is a national pastime in Singapore.

And what better way to celebrate this Christmas than to enjoy a festive buffet with loved ones and at the same time demonstrate kindness and generosity to the less fortunate? We tried the latest Festive Dinner Buffet at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore on a Thursday night, and it was a great prelude that set our Friday mood right.

Christmas 2018/ New Year 2019 Buffet

At the buffet restaurant, Makan@Jen, we found the presentation of the food to be a feast for the eyes and could not help snapping photos of the food before we ate them. A commendable effort by the dining team indeed. Their passion was certainly evident in their almost flawless presentation.

Something unique about this year's menu is how the classic dishes are infused with herbs freshly harvested right from the hotel's Level 10 secret garden manned by Senior Sous Chef Boon himself.

Meat Lover's Heaven

Despite the herbs taking centrestage, meat lovers will certainly be in for a treat. The buffet menu highlights include Roasted Canadian Whole Turkey with Garlic and Baby "Herbs Stuffing", Oven-Baked Australian Leg of Lamb infused with "Mint" Honey Mustard, Sweet "Basil" Truffle Maple Glazed Bone in Gammon Ham and the 8-hour Roasted "Rosemary" crusted Australian Angus Prime Rib. All the perfect traditional Christmas goodies in one place.

Seafood & Local Delights

For those who prefer seafood, it may be worth noting that on Thursday evenings the restaurant offers a seafood/ lobster themed buffet, with a wide selection of various seafood dishes that are sure to delight individuals who have a strong affinity for the delicious crustacean. Honorable mention should go to the lobster bisque and lobster paella.

Sweet Treats

Dessert lovers will get to savour a fine selection of Black Sesame Yuzu and Thyme Yule Log Cake and Pandan, Red Bean and Matcha Yule Log Cake. It is certainly a more ambitious, unique take on the the traditional Christmas logcake and perhaps transcends over the chocolate variation of the aforementioned offering. Top marks for creativity. At the end of your meal, order a sweet warm Mulled Wine and your stomach will thank you for all the indulgent feasting.

Giving Back to Society

This December, Hotel Jen Orchardgateway celebrates the yuletide season from the heart through its community involvement programme and sustainability.

In collaboration with Make-A-Wish® Foundation (S) Ltd, the hotel will see two Christmas trees decked with bauble ornaments and information on how to make a donation. All proceeds will go beneficiaries adopted by Make-A-Wish® Foundation. Additionally, the trees will feature handmade trinkets made of upcycled materials, demonstrating the hotelier's corporate social responsibility. Do join in!
