Though Christmas is over, the festive mood is still strong as we will welcome the new year in another few days’ time.
If you are thinking of a cosy and unique dining experience to usher in the new year, Sunrise Bistro & Bar, with its revamped a la carte menu and communal dining by the beach concept, is an excellent choice. Helmed by Chef Vincent Teng, Sunrise Bistro & Bar serves casual French cuisine with an Asian twist at affordable prices.
The Sumptuous Festive Meal ($99++ per set, add $38++ for Lobster Maine) is a 3-course festive sharing platter featuring a seafood platter, a meat platter and a dessert that is available till 1 January 2016. One can choose to dine-in or takeaway.
Start the 3-course communal meal with Chilled Assorted Seafood Platter. A wonderful selection of fresh seafood served with three types of condiments — Thai Style Roasted Tomato Dip, Japanese Mignonette with Japanese Brown Rice Vinegar and Shoyu with Wasabi.
The Japanese Mignonette with Japanese Brown Rice Vinegar sauce pairs well with the freshly shucked plump and creamy Australian Coffin Bay Oysters. The Thai Style Roasted Tomato Dip, our unanimous favourite, goes very well with the White Wine Blanched Live Prawns, Australian Blue Mussels & Venus Clams and of course, Shoyu with Wasabi is the default sauce for Salmon Sashimi.
The ‘main course’ is a meat platter comprising of Whole Red Snapper with Cereal Crust, BBQ Black Angus Beef Ribs and Crispy Pork Belly with Five Spice Salt. The meat goes well with the specially prepared sauces — Homemade Apple and Smoked Tomato Ketchup, Sweet Chilli and Pineapple Salsa and Honey Mustard Sauce.
The platter also comes with sides like smooth and creamy Pumpkin and Potato Mash, Truffle Fries and Seasonal Sauteed Vegetables.
End the meal on a savoury-sweet note with Salted Egg Yolk & White Chocolate Fondue. A communal pot of warm ‘liquid gold’ with a variety of accompaniments for dipping. Marshmallows work best with the molten salted egg yolk custard in my opinion; though I wish there were hot mini steamed buns for me to dip into.
The Sumptuous Festive Meal is good for a small, cosy gathering of 2-3 pax and for those who prefer a feast away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
