There is something magical about the Christmas season that makes people want to dance, to laugh, to sing, to love, and to make merry. Then as night falls, and the streets brilliantly sparkle with the millions of Christmas lights against the velvety darkness, a calm descends and a warm, fuzzy feeling envelopes you, and you definitely would not want to miss out on a heartwarming Christmas dinner with your loved ones. But the dilemma of finding an affordable restaurant that serves delectable dishes worthy of the festive occasion can put a damper on your Christmas spirit since many restaurants put an exorbitant price-tag on their specially crafted Christmas menu. However, thanks to Breeks, you and your closest friends and family members can still celebrate the joyous season by indulging in a divine feast that will not burn a hole through your pocket.
For this upcoming festive occasion, Breeks has put together a gastronomical delight just for all you merrymakers! Guaranteed to pleasure your tastebuds and keep your pockets hole-free, the menu will run from 16 December till 31 December 2013. The Christmas set menu that has been lovingly created by Breeks' master-chefs focuses very heavily on the enchanting aspects that Christmas has to offer. Each set is a 3-course meal that consists of a bowl of soup, one main course and the dessert. Set menus range from $25.90+ to $26.90+ respectively, depending on the selection between the two main courses: Roasted Turkey Harissa or Fillet of Norwegian Salmon.
Soup Of The Day: Mushroom Soup or Asparagus Soup
You can't really say that you had a hearty meal if there was no soup at the beginning of your feast. What else is better than whetting your appetite with a nice, steaming bowl of creamy soup especially during the cold Winter season to warm your soul? The Soup of the Day will either be the buttery Mushrooom Soup or the savoury Asparagus Soup, both extremely slurp-alicious in their own right.
Main Course: Roasted Turkey Harissa or Fillet of Norwegian Salmon
Roasted Turkey Harissa:
The Roasted Turkey Harissa is truly a wonder to behold. This Moroccan/Mid-Eastern dish consists of 2 thick, juicy slabs of turkey breasts imported from the U.S. that are generously slathered with a special Harissa marinate before cooking. The Harissa marinate is a mix of Arabic-Tunisian spices which gives off just the right amount of spiciness for that extra kick. The meat is firm yet tender with both sides slightly charred to perfection. A stream of cranberry sauce winds alongside the turkey breasts as a dip, and the combination of the tangy, succulent meat with the candy-sweet sauce makes such a remarkable fusion of flavors that no other words except “SHIOK” can describe this match made in heaven. A spectacular taste of the Mediterranean, the Roasted Turkey Harissa is also accompanied by stir-fried seasonal vegetables, and chunks of roasted pumpkin and potato.
Fillet of Norwegian Salmon:
Not only is salmon a pure and rich source of fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids that provide you with a wide array of health benefits, it is incredibly delicious as well! The pink, air-flown Norwegian salmon is pan-fried on its skin-side to a crispy excellence that crackles in your mouth, and comes soaking in a puddle of irresistible coriander butter which very magnificently complements the crumbly salmon flesh. The two chunky salmon pieces come along with a salad side and a handful of well-seasoned, soft, and juicy prawns comfortably nestled in a bed of diced carrots and pickles.
Dessert: Salted Caramel Brownie with a scoop of Ice Cream
Have you ever thought about how miraculous it is that no matter how full you are, your tummy always has room for dessert? Well, once you take a bite into this sweet, chocolatey brownie, you will devour everything on the plate and maybe still crave for more. Served warm with a sprinkle of chopped almonds, you need not worry about this brownie being too sweet for your tastebuds. This brownie pairs divinely with the cold vanilla ice cream, and once it touches your tongue, you will experience an exquisite burst of flavors and textures. So while the brownie is both rich in its bitter-sweet and slightly salty taste, the vanilla ice cream subtly cools it down and prevents it from being too overwhelming. Only dark chocolate of superior quality is used in Breeks' brownies, and they are handmade with no preservatives added. The Salted Caramel Brownie from Breeks is only exclusive to this Christmas season, and once we welcome in the New Year, you would have to bid farewell to this glorious masterpiece until Christmas comes round again, so you better have your fill of it now while it lasts!
Christmas Drink: Brown Noel
This drink is not included in the Christmas set menu, but it is a MUST-MUST-MUST-TRY. I cannot emphasize enough on how you cannot pass up slurping down this quintessential Christmas drink. For only $5.90+, the Brown Noel is practically Christmas in a cup, a sip of this will send you spiraling down Christmas lane lined with candy-canes and happy elves singing Christmas carols. Thick, frothy and chocolatey, the Brown Noel is a holiday dessert drink that will make you imagine you are gulping down a chocolate cloud. A sinful concoction of chocolate, ice cream, and other secret ingredients, this creamy beverage is further sweetened with a puff of fluffy whipped cream, a piece of honeydew and strawberry chocolate, mini marshmallow toppings, and then finished off with a dusting of coffee powder.
Breeks' Signature Brownies-In-A-Box will make the perfect gift to treat your family members, friends or corporate clients this Christmas. With 7 different varieties of smooth, rich and velvety brownies to choose from, you can spoil your loved ones at just $38+ for a beautiful box of 16 brownies.
