Let’s admit it, December is the month of the year when we decide to concede in our never-ending fight with our urge to eat. Aside from the countless Christmas parties we attend, there’s one particular occasion that sparks our appetite: Noche Buena. Whether it’s tradition, or simply because the food is that good, it seems like Noche Buena will always have a spot in our hearts and tummies. However, prepping for a feast like this is no joke. You may as well cancel any plans you have on December 24 because you will have your hands full the whole day. If you wanna skip through the part of the whole-day cooking, we suggest you come over to our country house and focus on spending time with your loved ones instead because we’ve prepared a Christmas Eve dinner buffet for you.
Featuring a Roast Beef and Cochinillo carving station, this is a feast that’s guaranteed to delight meat eaters. But that’s not all. Just like in any physical activity, it’s important to warm up first before indulging ourselves with the sumptuous food to come. Warm up your stomach first with a serving of Bouillabaisse, a rich seafood stew to prepare your appetite. Then head over to the cold station featuring a Salad Bar, Cheeseboard, Chicken Galantine, and Chilled Fresh Chucked Oysters. Make sure you’re still hungry when you try our main dishes of Paella, Vegetable Mousakka, Pork Stew with Chestnut, Tamarind Glazed Chicken, and Fish Provencale. In comes the carving station of succulent meats. Since it’s Noche Buena after all, we can’t really forget about dessert! Apple Puffs, Classic Chocolate Cake, Pear and Star Anise Bread and Butter Pudding, Coconut Panna Cotta with Salted Caramel, and Homemade Tablea Ice Cream are the choices for the sweet ending of this wonderful feast. Try any, or all of them if you’re still not stuffed from the food you’ve eaten.
For a delightful dining experience, be sure to book your seats as early as today, and don’t forget to come in hungry!
