Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so whether you’re alone or with family this year, it’s time to start planning. Here are some Thanksgiving dinner ideas that’ll leave you satisfied.
Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza
Treat yourself and your loved ones to a bonanza spread of more than 90 Thanksgiving favourites at Marriott Cafe’s Thanksgiving dinner buffet ($128 per person, inclusive of free-flow wines and beer; $58 per child) on 22 November. Meaty highlights include roast turkey with chestnut bread stuffing, slow-roasted Australian beef prime ribs, maple-glazed leg ham, and roast pork saddle stuffed with pancetta, prunes and mixed herbs. Seafood lovers can enjoy fresh and grilled items including freshly shucked oysters, Boston lobster, crayfish, snow crab legs and sashimi; there’s even a dedicated salmon station with gingerbread spiced cured salmon, Dijon marinated salmon and more. Save room for dessert – there are over 20 to choose from! We’re particularly eyeing the maple dark chocolate pot de crème, spiced pumpkin yoghurt trifle and honey roasted pecan pie.
If you’d prefer bringing the party to your place, Marriott Café’s got an array of festive goodies to go, including lavender roast turkey with orange, apple and cinnamon (4.5-5kg; $198), traditional roast turkey with chestnuts, foie gras stuffing, cranberry and port wine sauce (4.5-5kg; $188 nett), honey and clove-glazed ham (bone-in) with cinnamon-pineapple sauce (5-6kg; $248), slow roast beef striploin with port wine and horseradish sauce (2kg; $198), peanut and cream cheese gateau (1kg; $62), brandy and chestnut torte (1kg; $62) and pumpkin pie (500gm; $32).
