This Christmas, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has the festive takeaways and buffets in Azur not to be miss! Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has the exact location for travellers in airport to stop by for a meal or takeaways for holidays and celebrations.CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur

A whole roasted turkey is a must-have meat on the table for Thanksgiving Dinner. Azur has Yuletide takeaways from the Lobby Lounge. You can place your ease on cooking for the occasion and enjoy the meal with happy thoughts.  Here are the delicacies that I tried the other night for the festive celebration:


Pumpkin and chestnut salad with California raisin and pestoCROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur-3

It is an interesting combination of pumpkin and chestnut as the ingredients for salads. First time having chestnut in a salad bowl with pumpkin cubes to kick start the feast.

Fruits Salad with marinated artichoke and granny AppleCROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -4

With all kinds of fruits added in the salad bowl gives a refreshing taste before the feast.

Pan seared scallop with spinach, abalone mushroom and lemongrass brothCROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -5 CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -7

My favourite pan seared scallop nicely plated on each plate. The scallop was juicy sweet along with the lemongrass broth that lingers on my taste buds.CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -13CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -18

And also, desserts are not to be missing in buffets. There are egg nog pudding, raspberry yoghurt cream and ginger cream brulee. I would recommend to try the ginger cream brulee which I think the pastry chef did a good job in creating this recipe. The ginger taste wasn’t too overwhelming and surprisingly the combination was pretty awesome.



Roasted Turkey with Turmeric Coriander Spices and Spicy Coconut Cream Sauce S$135.00++ / 5kgCROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -2CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -8

Chef Boey Min Hwa is in action and served us with this slow-cooked turkey.


The slow-cooked turkey marinated with an oriental rub consisting of tumeric and a mix of fragrant spices was succulently tender and juicy. The turkey was cooked in low temperature at 70 degree celcius for 6 hours.The meat was soft that I don’t mind having it without sauces and still taste good with the marinated spices in it. If you want to have enhanced flavour, pair it with the spicy coconut cream sauce that has similar local curry taste. It’s more like an Asian-style of cooking flavours.


Sous Vide for 24 hours before being roasted in the oven. The beef short rib falls straight off the bone and it is absolutely tender and soft. As the chef cuts on the spot, I can feel the softness of the meat.


Ispahan-inspired Log Cake with Raspberries Yoghurt Mousse S$65.00+CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -14CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -17

If you are a fruity person, this log cake would be an interesting. It has the raspberry yoghurt mouse with frozen lychee bits and rose flavoured jelly in the cake centre.

Manjaru Chocolate & Hazelnut Praline Yule Log Cake S$65.00+CROWNE PLAZA® CHANGI AIRPORT -Azur -15

Chocolate log cake with crunchy scrumptious hazelnut centre and artfully sculpted by the Pastry Chef in log shape. The log cake decoration is complete with the enchanted forest edible arts. I enjoyed the rich flavours of the chocolate with nice balance of bitter and sweetness taste in it.
