Christmas Eve & Christmas Day Buffet Dinner At Eastin Hotel
I would gladly give Christmas Turkey a miss for a hearty Beef Wellington and Yorkshire Pudding done right. The Chefs at Eastin Hotel Penang win me over with their warm flavorful, incredibly indulgent and luxurious Beef Wellington.
I had that with a serve of Christmas Turkey dribbled over with giblet sauce, no less and cranberry jelly. Nothing is more decadent than the two beautiful Tiramisu in a chocolate cup. I washed that down with 2 cups of hot latte and concluded that, for me, it was the best Christmas Dinner.
Traditional Christmas Turkey, Beef Wellington and Yorkshire Pudding
Yes, the old favorites are certainly still on the menu as it is with all international buffets. I remember the ghost of Christmas past when I cooked and an abundance of roast vegetables. Reduce the pan juices and Strained it twice to make gravy. The only thing missing at the buffet line up was probably my favorite, goose fat roast potatoes. You press this on a hot cast iron skillet so that the spuds caramelize on the edges. The crispier the better. I would make this for the family once a year. Then we would eat dense fruit cake marinated in brandy and drink limoncino.
The list of hot dishes is a good balance with curries, meats, fish, and poultry. There’s Salmon Fish Head Curry, Fragrant Prawn with Nutmeg Mayo Sauce, Chicken Gordon Bleu, Homemade Chicken Roulade to name a few. The Roast Lamb is perfectly cooked, both tender, soft and surprisingly delicious.
Lots of Christmas dessert with Chocolate Truffle Cake, Christmas Log, Classic Cheese Cake, Crème Brule and Floating Island with Almond and Cereal. The Floating Island tasted like air. It was so soft and melting.
