French inspired dining with a twist this festive season at Sofitel So Singapore

Trevor Paulo, the head culinary designer of Sofitel So Singapore's gastro-bar dining concept restaurant, Xperience, is commemorating his first saison de Noël (Christmas season) at the hotel with a four-course Christmas Eve dinner.

The dinner will start with an amuse bouche of blinis topped with dill yogurt and herring roe, followed by an entrée that resembles a miniature garden - house-cured Salmon Gravlax on a bed of edible truffle, mushroom soil and pickled shallots.

For the main course, Chef Paulo will personally carve a hay roasted savel chicken at the guest’s table. For dessert, a deconstructed version of the classic pear tarte tatin will be served: layers of poached pear and warm cake, lightly spiced with cinnamon ice cream and peppered with honeycomb from bees that have been fed on longan fruit alone.

In addition to the Christmas Eve dinner, a buffet lunch on Christmas Day has been prepared. Choose from meats like slow roasted lamb leg, cranberry & fig stuffed savel chicken and Christmas breads like stollen and panettone. Desserts include croque en bouche, a specialty of Chef Paulo's.

To usher in 2016, Chef Paulo has created a New Year’s Eve menu sectioned into Revelation, Celebration, Jubilation, Countdown and Resolution. 


Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Dinner will be available on 24 and 25 December 2015 at S$88++. Christmas Day Lunch on 25 December 2015 is S$128++ while the New Year’s Eve Dinner on 31 December 2015 is S$98++.
