Hotel Christmas Buffet 2016 | Millennium Hotels & Resorts

Hotel Christmas Buffet 2016 from Millennium Hotels & Resorts

Phyllis Diller once said, “Christmas is a time when everybody wants his past forgotten and his present remembered.” And we all know that the way to anyone’s heart is through his stomach. So here’s a curated article on some great hotel Christmas buffet for 2016. If you hadn’t been good for the year, do read on, because, after a good dinner, one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relatives. 😛

~M Hotel | Café 2000~

I’m not cooking any Christmas feast, neither had I been a bad girl, but I’m still gonna stuff foodie Peps with all the hotel Christmas buffet feasts invites. I had the opportunity to review M Hotel earlier this year and was impressed by the dinner buffet Derrick See had with his wife. So now it’s my turn to visit CafĂ© 2000 with foodie Peps to check out their Christmas goodies!
Hotel Christmas buffet M Hotel Cafe 2000 Tiffany Yong Peps GohCafĂ© 2000 was all ready to celebrate the festive month with jolly Father Christmas when we arrived at M Hotel. As there are too many dishes in each hotel, I will be sharing the festive highlights so that this article won’t overflow!

M Hotel Cafe 2000 Christmas Buffet Soup Bread PepsThe cafe serves soups to go with bread, for those who want something light while waiting for your friends.

M Hotel Cafe 2000 Christmas Turkey Baked HamOtherwise, go for the traditional festive meats. The two star Christmas dishes are the Turkey Honey Baked Ham Cheese Nut Stuffing as well as the roast beef.

Hotel Christmas buffet M Hotel Cafe 2000 Christmas Buffet Seafood Peps GohAny seafood lovers? Peps was drawn automatically to the fresh juicy oysters. There are 3 different dips: thai chili sauce, red cocktail sauce, sesame dressing and lemon wedges for you to try.

M Hotel Cafe 2000 Christmas SeafoodAny OCDs out there? We went a little crazy when we saw how neatly the seafood were arranged. With cold prawns, oysters, snow crab legs, mussels and clams, those need something refreshing can help yourself to the fresh seafood.

M Hotel Cafe 2000 Christmas Buffet Steam Crabs Tiffany YongSingaporeans will be familiar with our national dish: chili crab. But most people don’t know, that to steamed crab is the most classical art of crab cooking. It enhances the original flavour of the crab and preserves its appearance, aroma and marvellous taste.

M Hotel Cafe 2000 Pasta CornerThis is one of the Chef’s recommendation. If you are a pasta lover, you get to customize your own pasta by picking the pasta type, the ingredients and your sauce. The chef will cook on the spot for you for a piping hot dish.

~ Orchard Hotel | Orchard Café ~

Next on the Hotel Christmas Buffet list, it’s Orchard CafĂ© from Orchard Hotel! Despite it being really close to Lovmor (my evening gown partner) at Delfi Orchard, it was my first time visiting Orchard Hotel.
Hotel Christmas buffet Orchard Hotel Orchard Cafe Peps Goh Tiffany YongWe were super duper impressed with the extensive decoration as well as the whole transformation of the cafe to fit the festive theme.
Orchard Hotel Christmas Buffet Turkey and HamPresenting to you: Slow cooked turkey breast with giblet sauce and Okinawa Black Sugar Glazed Ham with Red Cabbage Casserole from the Orchard Café. Need a closer look?

Orchard Hotel Orchard Cafe Christmas Buffet Tiffany YongThis is how big the leg of ham was #BiggerThanMyFace. I was really impressed with the presentation of the meats and was so tempted to post all the 10 different photos Peps took from different angle!
Orchard Hotel Christmas Seafood SpreadWhen I first saw this seafood-on-ice station, I felt as if I was on a fishing boat, and tasting these catches directly. All the seafood were nicely labelled, so aside from Alaskan King Crab, Boston Lobsters and freshly-shucked Oysters, there are many more options for your indulgence.

Orchard Hotel The Orchard Cafe Christmas BuffetOrchard CafĂ© presents an indulgent array of traditional festive favourites, as well as Asian and Western specialties to keep you merry throughout the year-end festivities! There’s the freshly-fried tempura (star dish in Orchard CafĂ©), sushi, rendangs, sautĂ©ed clams and many more~

Orchard Hotel Orchard Cafe Pork Belly BunFor those who prefer a more Chinese twist to your Christmas, you will definitely love this traditional Kong Ba Pao with steamed buns aka Chinese pork burger aka Braised Pork Belly with Flower Bun. I’m not a fan of the fatty pork belly, but the meat looked so well-braised and delicious with the dark soy sauce! I was (almost!) salivating when I took this photo!

Hotel Christmas buffet Orchard Hotel Orchard Cafe Christmas Dinner BuffetThis place is definitely suitable for families, especially those with elderly or parents who prefer the more Chinese style of buffet. Aside from the above, there are items including Seabass with Otak Crust and Laksa Sauce, Beef Tomahawk, Balsamic Glazed Potatoes with Thyme Sauce and Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb, Grilled Capsicums and Garlic Mint Sauce. It’s a Christmas feast with flavours of Singapore!

Orchard Hotel Christmas CakesLeave room for a variety of charmingly crafted desserts, from Christmas Chestnut Mousse to Ginger and Cinnamon CrÚme Brûlée as well as Warm Yuzu Pudding with Mandarin Orange Compote and Vanilla Ice Cream at a live dessert station.

Third, it’s Grand Copthorne Waterfront hotel, the hotel which had recently underwent a $17 million makeover. You will get to experience the hotel’s Integrated Dining with a little festive touch to it.
Grand Copthorne Waterfront Food Capital Tiffany YongYou will be welcomed by plenty of avant garde mannequins, with hippy sunglass and headphones. Can’t help but be awed by their awesomeness! The place offers a multi-sensory buffet dining experience, with cuisines from around the world and theatrical show kitchens.
Grand Copthorne Waterfront Christmas AntipastiThe restaurant comprises of 3 sections: Food Capital, Grissini and Tempo (a trendy and dynamic bar). At Food Capital, the variety of antipasti surprised me. I won’t spoil it for you, but if you get to visit Food Capital, look out for the little surprises within these bowls.

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Food Capital Christmas Buffet Peps GohAt Grissini, the Christmas meats were all awaiting for fellow carnivores to devour them. Anything you need in a traditional Christmas meal, you’ll find them here.

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Christmas MeatsIf you are someone who doesn’t like to waste food, going for buffet during festive season will be a good way to celebrate the joy with other diners, as well as consuming only what you want (no leftovers!).

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Christmas DishesThe Food Capital consist of live stations serving Asian and international cuisines. You’ll get to see sashimi and sushi freshly sliced at the Japanese station, the rotisserie station featuring perfectly grilled Australian ribeye and boneless lamb leg and relish Asian wok-fried dishes and mouth-watering tandoori chicken freshly prepared in the tandoori oven.
Grand Copthorne Waterfront Christmas Buffet GrilledYou’ll definitely be spoilt for choices (I was!) as there are so many to choose from. From fresh seafood-on-ice, (including snow crab leg, New Zealand, green lip mussel, Canadian oyster, Chilean scallop with roe, cherry clam and chilled tiger prawn), to satay spread and ice-cream live station, you might just wish to stay there from lunch till dinner!

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Food Capital Christmas Log Cake Tiffany YongThe dessert here was an eye-candy. The log cakes were cute and I couldn’t help but take a photo with it!

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Food Capital Christmas DessertWhat I like most about the dessert here is how instaworthy they are! The banana crumble and custard sauce with alcohol, Christmas pudding, lemon curd with meringue cone all looks really tantalising!

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Food Capital Christmas Dessert 2There’s also many other bite-size cakes – bread and butter pudding, chocolate pudding, chocolate pecan tart, matcha red bean cake, baked cheese cake, Ă©clair and assorted macaroons. A spectacular finale to the meal.

  1. Out of everything here, I’d prolly pick Orchard Cafe because it has a pretty impressive seafood spread! Although, the log cakes at the other buffets look tempting. Hmm..

  2. Everything looks so mouth watering! This is definitely a perfect guide for those who would rather want to spend holiday outside. I miss dining in buffet restaurants. I love the desserts offered in every resto you featured here.

  3. Wow! All those food trips you did made me hungry! How come you never get fat? What is your secret? Really, I am interested to know. 🙂

  4. I have to admit that whenever we travel, my budget for lodging is usually budget. We want to spend more of our money on sight seeing and shopping than the hotel. However, occasionally we also want to be pampered when we travel so it is good to know options like this as well. – Fred

  5. Oh boy I’m TOTALLY hungry! I want to eat in those places. Buffets here is never like this. You’ll never see sumptuous desserts like these here. Oh my gosh the chocolate fondue seems out of this world.

  6. How do you eat so much and remain the way you are? Thanks for sharing this, I’m a real sucker for hotel buffets. Will check out the King’s Copthorne !
