The debonair and indomitable Travelling Gourmet TM goes to fabulous Food Exchange to savour the…

MERRY Festive Buffet featuring international specialities to tempt even the most jaded palates. Apart from the delicious food, I also like the spacious and cheerful ambiance of the restaurant. It is also “coool” to feast beside the swimming pool al fresco. The hazard of buffet dining is over-eating…so my humble recommendation as The Travelling Gourmet TM is:

Be selective and do not eat big portions. If you eat slowly, savouring the food and have degustation (tasting) portions, you will be fine. Practice “Mindful Eating”!

Carving Satay Turkey!

SATAY Roasted Turkey!

Classic Traditional Roast Turkey and Boneless Honey Baked Ham are some of the stars of the show. The moist and tender ham was excellent.

Satay Turkey with Root Vegetables and Brussels Sprouts

However, there is a new star…Satay Roasted Turkey! Most innovative! The turkey is marinated and seasoned with Satay spices like Lemongrass and galic…Turkey meat with the mildly spicy Satay sauce is very yummie. There is also Schweinshaxe or German -style Pork Knuckle with crispy crackling which I love.


I always like that old joke: I am on a seafood diet…when I see food I eat it! Ha! Ha!

Scallops, Snow Crab and more!

The Seafood on Ice section is always appealing with big Prawns, Scallops on the half shell, Mussels, Oysters au naturel, Clams, Snow Crab and more!

Lovers of Indian cuisine will find Tandoori Chicken lovingly cooked in the cylindrical clay oven called…the Tandoor. This dish was created by Punjabi Kundan Lal Gujral in Delhi in 1947. Marinated in yoghurt and Masaal spices which comprise Pepper, Paprika, Ginger, Turmeric, Garlic and more…I like to enjoy it with green Mint Sauce and Sweet Mango Chutney. With Naan Indian bread…

Ooo-dles of Noodles!

At the live Noodle Bar Station, traditionalists always enjoy good ol’ Prawn Laksa and Tom Yam Seafood Noodle Soup freshly cooked for them. There are several types of noodles for your choice. There is Char Siew, Roast Pork with Crunchy Crackling and Roast Duck with sweet gooey Plum Sauce too.

Satisfy your sweet tooth!

Sexy Christmas Sweeties Santa Claus is edible Wahahah! πŸ™‚

Desserts! I love desserts especially Christmas desserts. Sweet treats are an integral part of Christmas.

The goodies include luscious Christmas Pudding with Brandy Sauce, rich Christmas Log Cake, Lemon Meringue Cake, Potong Ice Cream Bars, yummie and rich Christmas Fruit Cake, aromatic Festive Lebkuchen or Gingerbread Cookies and more! The Chocolate Lebkuchen in the shape of Gingerbread men and cute Tannenbaeume (Christmas trees) are very delicious. Lebkuchen are very big in Germany and Austria.

Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes Neues Jahr! (Joyful Christmas and a Happy New Year in German)
