It is the perfect dish to bring to a party of 10 to 12 guest. Another favourite of the night is the Gammon Bone-in Ham (S$158+, 6kg). Glazed with a sweet and tangy homemade sauce and baked to perfection, the skin is crisp and the meat is tender and juicy.
For desserts, do not miss their Merry Berry Cheese-mas Yule Log Cake (S$68+) which features a moist Manjari chocolate sponge cake layered with luscious raspberry cream cheese frosting. The tanginess of the frosting was a nice complement to the sweet chocolate sponge.
