Featuring their creations inspired from produce found in the proverbial Black Forest, some of the specialty includes US Black Angus Beef Prime Rib that is only available during weekends. Served medium rare, the beef is slow roasted and finished off in their wood-fired oven that resulted in a distinctive smoky flavour. The true slice of perfection was brushed with salt and pepper to enhance the natural flavour and the stimulating pinkness of the meat will leave you wanting more.
Another favourite item is the Crown Roast of Pork with Herbs and Mustard. Look at the spectacular pork ribs that were wrapped together to depict a crown! I was so tempted to grab the whole ribs and munch away the tender meat marinated with fesh herbs such as thyme and rosemary.
Spit-roasted Chicken with Tarragon is immersed in a mire poix consisting a pot of mixed vegetables and herbs for over 10 hours before it is roasted on a spit in the rotisserie. So can you imagine the robust flavour and soft meat, especially when the drippings from the chicken fat are evenly distributed? They have also included tarragon, a peculiar Christmas herb stuffed within the cavity and right beneath the chicken skin!
Many of us mistook this for salmon, perhaps due to the pinkish surface. But no, this is Spicy Maple Pecan Crusted Trout roasted in the wood-fire oven and garnished with roasted garlic cream. The subtle sweetness of the maple as well as the crunchy pecan simply elevated the flavour of the trout and we had at least 3 servings!
Other than the mains, they also have a few special sides such as German Potato Pancakes, Honey Roasted Beets Forest Mushroom Flatbread and Kenyan Beans and Chestnuts.
Yorkshire Pudding is available at dinner only, and this crisp shell and a fluffy pudding-alike center goes addictively well with their truffle butter!
While Pork Knuckle with Crackling is part of their usual buffet menu, it is worth to mention because the crispy skin was luscious with firm texture of the meat!
As for the desserts, Buckwheat Crêpes are made upon request, and you can personalize with your own favourite toppings. Look out for the special banana mango, as well as other Chrismas sprinkles. Oh, don’t forget to drizzle the all time favourite Nutella!
Black Forest Trifle is prepared with layers of chocolate sponge cake, chocolate sponge cake, brandy soaked cherries and tiered with dark Valrhona chocolate. The intense dark chocolate was thick and the plump cherries simply burst in your mouth.
Baked Apples with Walnut Stuffing is made with Granny Smith and red Gala apples. The apples were baked till soft and it was filled with caramelized center with nutty flavour!
