Experience New Scandinavian Flavours at Triple Three, Mandarin Orchard's award-wining buffet restaurant, from 24 March to 3 April. It's a great way to be introduced to Nordic dishes and flavours featuring ingredients like herring, smoked haddock and cloudberries (no, these will not make you feel like you're floating. Moohehe).
Here are some of the Nordic dishes from the buffet spread:
Herring on Rye Bread, a canapé with the cured, briny flavours of the herring and punchy, tanginess of mustard against dense rye bread. Pair it with a cocktail made with the classic Scandinavian spirit Aquavit, lime juice, syrup, sparkling wine and blue curacao. The tipple's strong body and herbaceous flavours match the herring nicely.
My personal favourite dish of the evening was this Salmon, Vanilla Mash with Capers and Brown Butter. The salmon was lightly seared on one side before being very gently baked in the oven to produce a wonderfully moist, almost confit-like texture. Nuttiness from the browned butter, saltiness from the capers and a perfumed sweetness from the vanilla mash all combined for a pleasant foil to the salmon. A mix of traditional European cooking with a modern touch.
Moore smoked fish! The Smoked Haddock with Leek and Cauliflower offered simple flavours that came together quite nicely. The milk or cream-based sauce tapered the smokiness of the haddock.
Besides unlimited servings of Nordic specialties, diners can also tuck into the regular favourites from Triple Three's buffet spread. Think seafood on ice, French and Irish oysters, roast beef, honey baked ham, tempura, naan and curries, sashimi, teppanyaki, cheeses and a dessert counter.
New Scandinavian Flavours ($118 per adult) is available for dinner daily and also for lunch on Sundays during the promotional period of 24 March to 3 April.
