Savour the season of joy, giving and good tidings with a resplendent line-up of choice festive offerings curated for you and yours. From new and HFC’s signature take-home goodies to gastronomic buffets and festive-inspired high teas, herald the holiday spirit in epicurean style at The Salon and HFC Grand Marquee – Singapore’s largest of its kind in a hotel.

Amid the revelry, recharge and renew with the “Spa-cation in Style” package for a perfect respite from the humdrum of the city, while still being steps away from the heart of festive charm on Orchard Road

 GOURMET TAKE-HOME TREATS FROM THE PARK

Be it for home or office parties, make festive entertaining a cinch with The Salon’s contemporary and classic seasonal roasts, as well as charming confectionaries crafted to delight the sweet-toothed.

This year, the bird of choice for Christmas gets a satay-spiced upgrade. Bring a taste of heritage home with the all-new Satay Roast Turkey, the latest addition to our locally-influenced turkey collection that celebrates Singapore’s well-loved flavours.

Satay – a national dish synonymous with multi-ethnic Singapore – traces its beginnings to a bygone era of “The Travelling Satay Man” – roaming hawkers who peddled the skewered delights on the streets up to the late 1970s. Later, a collection of satay stalls known as The Satay Club at the Esplanade park came to be a popular dining spot among families until 1995. Today, the Satay Street that runs parallel to Lau Pa Sat, and Satay by the Bay are dedicated establishments that strike a chord with generations young and old.

Inspired by the eponymous dish, our chefs have put a distinct Singaporean spin on this festive centrepiece in homage to the humble beginnings of this beloved street eat.

To perfect its taste and texture, the poultry is first marinated overnight with an aromatic blend of fresh lemongrass, turmeric, galangal, cumin and coriander powders, enhanced with a touch of Chef’s secret ingredients. The rich spices are massaged into the turkey, covering all the nooks and crannies. Steeped in the spice-laden marinade, the turkey is slow-roasted for hours to achieve a caramelised and charred exterior, while retaining its succulent texture. A delicious house-made ground peanut dip and classic accompaniments of ketupat (rice cakes), onions and cucumbers are served to complement the turkey.

The Salon reprises two HFC signature turkeys namely the Chilli Crab Roast Turkey and Salted Egg Yolk Roast Turkey – Singapore-inspired flavours that are firm favourites among celebrants. Traditionalists with a staunch palate will relish the Traditional Roast Turkey making an anticipated return. Other delectable takeaway items include the Honey Baked Ham and Roasted Beef Striplointhat will sate the appetite of meat lovers.

Sweeten your celebrations with a selection of six luscious Yule logs that spell sheer decadence. Making their debut are intriguing flavours such as Beetroot, Matcha Sesame, Passionfruit and Purple Sweet Potato, that taste as good as they look – and make great festive gifts too.

Festive takeaway goodies will be available for order and collection at The Salon from 5 November to 25 December 2018. Selected credit cardholders and partners enjoy 15% off the takeaway items.

Please refer to Annex A for the list of Festive Takeaway Items.
