Singapore - Christmas Goodies from Vis-a-Vis and Centre Ps

Christmas... a time of sharing, giving, receiving, and of course like the good Asian in us, FEASTING! In this spirit, the need to have goodies of quality, festively packaged is ever so important.

I relied heavily on two places worthy of mention... one old, one new, nothing borrowed, nothing blue.

Vis-a-vis, a long standing veteran in the French dining scene in Singapore, and known for its Christmas roasts. Of worthy mention, the boneless turkey stuffed with foie gras, is as decadent as it sounds, but with none of that greasy badness, and still a winner after all these years. The roast US Sirloin encrusted with black peppercorn, garlic and fresh herbs, did not pale in comparison either and despite cooked ahead of time for delivery, retained its juices well and remained pink and tender.

Centre Ps' fruit cake was a winner with various sizes for gifting and is actually a delight to savour. Dense and moist, with generous amounts of fruit, and not a tad too sweet, embodied the right amount of holiday cheer. If you like your chocolate, their log cake is also one of the best I've ever had.

Happy Holidays and may 2009 bring more cheer and success to all!
