Lawry’s The Prime Rib | Celebrate Christmas / New Year’s with their Set Menus
Every Christmas and New Year, Lawry will roll out its set menus (a different set menu for Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year)! You can expect 4 different menus, with the signature prime rib present across all 4 menus.
We tried their Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve menu and here are some of the highlights from those menus.
Christmas Eve’s menu starts off with an amuse bouche of Salmon Gravlax with Chips. Cured salmon sits atop one cracker and the other features thai prawn mayonnaise.
The starter is an onion consommé – not the usual soup you expect at Lawry’s, but the sweetness from the caramelised onion is tempered with the savouriness from the baked cheese, with a brioche to mop it up.
The appetiser is a baked jumbo shrimp and rosemary duck breast with balsamic dressing drizzled over it.
As for the main, you can choose from yuletide tradition (a prime rib and turkey combo) – also our pick, or a roasted poultry with foie gras, or a yuletide seafood medley. The signature roasted USDA prime rib of beef does not disappoint. For Christmas, it is served with 100g of sliced turkey that was more tender than we expected. Later, the chef shared with us that the turkey was brined for hours which explains its tenderness. The yorkshire pudding and creamed corn is also something that I look forward to every time I visit Lawry’s.
Those who prefer seafood can opt for the Yuletide Seafood Medley, which features a baked lobster tail and grilled ora king salmon. The latter is flaky and moist, whilst the former is well-grilled with a touch of cheese atop.
The last entrée option for the Christmas Eve menu is the Roasted Poultry with Foie Gras. A generous portion of grilled quarter chicken is served with creamed spinach and foie gras. The chicken would be better if it was less dry.
For the New Year’s Eve menu, the amuse bouche is a golden soft shell crab. Crispy with a sweet glaze to whet your appetite.
The starter is a soup that I like at Lawry’s, the lobster bisque. You’ll find a lobster tail in the soup, with croutons added for texture.
The appetiser is the pan seared foie gras. The serving for this is generous, so definitely one for the foie gras lovers. Although I personally found the flavour a tad too rich. The port wine raisin sauce helped to tamper that slightly.
For my main, I chose the Signature Roasted USDA Prime Rib of Beef. For the New Year’s Eve, it’s a hefty 180g of Prime Rib – with choice of creamed corn, spinach or buttered peas.
The dessert is also different from Christmas Eve – you have the Latte Lover’s Dream, a vanilla sponge cake with latte cream and cocoa powder, or the New Year’s Bliss Mango Cake, a vanilla sponge cake with mango cream. All the cakes are made in house. You can take home a bottle of La Marca Prosecco / Scavi & Ray Moscato Spumante (depending on which day you visit Lawry’s) with a minimum spending of $500++. We recommend booking your seats in advance because this place is a popular choice during the festive season.
Budget per person: $193++ per guest
