The highlight of the season would definitely be at the Carving Station especially on the Authentic Roasted Turkey with Classic Ingredients and Condiments. Do watch out for the Yorkshire Puddings which would be great with any meat items. One thing great about the turkey was that it was prepared perfectly with the right roasting, tenderness and juiciness.

EASTINXMAS201502 photo EASTINXMAS201502_zpsuyxblppm.jpg

For Hot Delicacies, you would be treated with Chicken Roulade with Pomegranate Sauce, Spanish Butter Rice with Nut, Poached Seabass with Saffron Sauce and more. Well, I quite like the Chicken Roulade with Pomegranate Sauce as it was one dish that you could hardly get from other eateries. Pomegranates are loaded with important nutrients that may lower the risk of all sorts of diseases.

EASTINXMAS201504 photo EASTINXMAS201504_zpswu9roccg.jpg

HRHXMAS01 photo HRHXMAS01_zps298f87e1.jpg

If you are not a fan of seafood, there’ll always be the Seared Rare Beef with Roasted Pumpkin and Pesto. Not a bad combination though but I would prefer some beef jus added to add in more flavors.

HRHXMAS02 photo HRHXMAS02_zps1158e096.jpg

The highlight of any Christmas meal will always be the roasted turkey, what more it’s organically fed without added antibiotic or hormone. We were treated with Roasted Turkey with Giblet Gravy with Cranberry Sauce, Glazed Nuts Stuffing, Sweet Potatoes & Seasonal Vegetables. Oh My… This is the best turkey I ever had and the meat was juicy and tender unlike others. Combined with the condiments of gravy and sauce plus the stuffing, it was a perfect meal for the whole season.

HRHXMAS03 photo HRHXMAS03_zps5e939853.jpg

HRHXMAS04 photo HRHXMAS04_zpse52c6451.jpg

The next dish which was the Hawaiian Crab Cakes with Green Pea Puree and Grilled Pineapple was awesome. Soft in the inside will the juiciness of the seafood combined with the crusty outer layer was perfect for any party.

HRHXMAS05 photo HRHXMAS05_zpsfb0ec9a9.jpg
