Eat, drink, and be merry this holiday season with festive specialties courtesy of Ellenborough Market Cafe at Swissôtel Merchant Court! Treat yourself to mouthwatering treats ranging from classic Christmas roasts, to Peranakan-inspired dishes and durian petit fours brought to your table.
Begin your holiday feasting with a Welcome Snack which simulates the experience of wandering through Christmas markets in Europe. Treat yourself to some crunchy Maple Candied Bacon, while sipping on Freshly Brewed Mulled Wine which warms from within.
Peranakan and other Asian inspired dishes are aplenty this year. Whet your appetite with skilfully plated appetisers like Prawn Salad with Asian Herbs and Lobster Cracker, Kueh Pie Tee, and Homemade Otak Otak – each of them fresh and delicately flavoured.
Hghlights of Ellenborough Market Cafe’s festive Asian dishes include Rock Lobster in Singapore Chilli Crab Sauce and Deep Fried Prawn in Creamy Salted Egg Yolk Sauce, whose vibrant colours and flavours will wow you and your guests.
Here to substantiate your pickings are Nasi Ulam and Nasi Bunga Telang, complete with toothsome Indonesian crackers. Order as a table to evoke memories of communal dining at your favourite grandma’s house!
If sharing’s not your thing, the EMC Signature Laksa is equally slurp-worthy, with fresh river prawn and clams that level up this classic comfort dish. The dash of sambal blachan adds just the right amount of heat to the rich, coconut-laden flavours.
Western leaning palates will delight in Ellenborough Market Cafe’s selection of Christmas Roasts. The Honey Glazed Gammon Ham & Cinnamon Apple Sauce and Black Angus Tenderloin cut like butter, and nothing says attention to detail quite like the Roasted Nyonya Turkey Breast. And not forgetting – the ever quintessential Yorkshire Pudding & Boderlaise Jus!
Conclude your Christmas feasting on a sweet note with Ellenborough Market Cafe’s sweets and desserts, which include Acai Banana Chocolate Cake, Raspberry Citrus Yule Log Cake, and Durian Petit Fours. As always, the durian petit fours do not disappoint, with every bite rich and chock-full of durian.
