In the LIME-light This Festive Season at PARKROYAL on Pickering

Parkroyal on Pickering Festuve

Are we already in December? Time slips by when we are having fun, but we should really take a little breather, slow down and savour the remaining moments of 2014. Bonuses are coming in, Christmas is round the corner, and soon before we know it, we’d be counting down to a new year.

What are your plans for the yuletide festivities? Have you started feasting already?

If you haven’t had an idea, we have (more) suggestions on how to pamper your taste buds. Well, we always do, and this time, it is at one of our favourite hotels no less. Be enraptured in all the warmth of festivities at PARKROYAL on Pickering, and spend the lasts of 2014 with traditional goodies in the lush iconic urban resort.

Lime Restaurant

Sitting adjacent to the historic Hong Lim Park, PARKROYAL on Pickering is fast becoming the icon of Chinatown. Its award-winning architecture is a sheer sight to behold, with greenery in abundance, and charming cascading plants that caress the building so mysteriously yet beautifully. And what lies beneath is a supremely gorgeous restaurant-in-a-garden that we fall in love with over and over again.

There’s always something very inviting about Lime Restaurant at PARKROYAL on Pickering, it makes us feel all warm and cozy like we’re coming home for Christmas. We always love a good meal there, and even more so when the culinary team helmed by Executive Chef Vijayakant is all geared up to pamper us with their bests for the year-end celebrations.

And here are some of our picks from PARKROYAL on Pickering’s festive menu 2014 – some for a scrumptious dinner at Lime, and some to take home to host our guests with the best party food.


From 12th to 23rd December 2014 and 26th to 30th December 2014, dine at Lime and receive a complimentary glass of Limeade – the signature mocktail and our perfect blend. The little ones get a cup each too.


Starring perennial Christmas favourites, Lime’s impressive buffet repertoire will include Lobster Bisque Soup, Roasted Turkey, US Prime Ribs, and our favourite Honey Baked Ham.


Now, this is hands down the BEST ham we have had this year. Nothing comes close to Lime’s rendition – the skin is coated with a copious amount of honey, then baked to a mild crisp, leaving a mild sweetness that complements the saltiness of the ham. It is like a perfect marriage of taste, and one that lingers in the mouth (and the minds). One serving is definitely not enough to satisfy!

Duck confit

And why, the duck confit with pan-seared foie gras is too lovely to be missed too! If any, we cannot resist a good foie gras that is pan-seared to perfection, with a beautiful crisp that cocoons the warmest creaminess. That’s why we really appreciate Lime’s ala minute stations. The passionate chefs are ever ready to whip up hearty dishes for your gastronomical muses.

Log cakes

There are many variations of yule logs in the market, but locals will dig Lime’s presentation – Durian Mousse with Vanilla Buttercream Log Cake. The nation’s coveted tropical fruit in a soft cake, generously covered with fragrant vanilla buttercream; such a decadent indulgence that even Santa would be pleased.


From the last we’ve heard, Lime is fully booked for Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, so if you are planning to try their festive buffet which runs daily from 12 to 23 Dec 2014, and 26 to 30 Dec 2014, make sure you book a table soon.
