At this time of year everyone is doing Christmas lunch. At work we have quite a few areas that will go out to lunch. I’m fortunate to be invited to quite a few of these lunches.
Today one section that I’m very close to had their Christmas lunch at the Hyatt hotel in Canberra. I’ve previously blogged about lunch there.
Tuesday 2013-12-03 12.49.45 AEDT Hyatt Christmas Lunch. It’s a buffet with a combination hot and cold servery plus a good dessert selection.
Tuesday 2013-12-03 12.43.56 AEDT Plate 1. I was told by a smorgasbord expert in Perth that you should always start with fruit because it aids digestion. It seemed to help me today.
Tuesday 2013-12-03 12.52.35 AEDT Plate 2 was mainly seafood. Oysters, mussels, bugs and salmon. It was all very nice.
Tuesday 2013-12-03 13.02.09 AEDT Plate 3 was more seafood this time some prawns, a fennel and fish salad and some Caesar salad.
Tuesday 2013-12-03 13.17.57 AEDT Plate 4 had some more fish and fennel salad, hot ham, tomato and Mozzarella, roast potatoes, bacon pieces and artichoke.
Tuesday 2013-12-03 13.31.23 AEDT Plate 5 was more Caesar salad, hot ham, artichoke, stargazer fish, blue cheese and more fish and fennel salad (because it was good).
Tuesday 2013-12-03 13.43.42 AEDT Plate 6 was the start of dessert. It had a chocolate mousse with lemon jelly, creme caramel, vanilla log and Tiramisu.
Tuesday 2013-12-03 14.03.47 AEDT Plate 7 was simply a meringue biscuit and a mint panna cotta (which was delicious).
Tuesday 2013-12-03 14.34.57 AEDT We had a Secret Santa and I got a Nerf gun with some antlers to place on my victim of choice.
The meal cost each of us $65 plus drinks and coffee etc. It’s an expensive meal so I made sure I made the most of the opportunity. The food is good but like any buffet it’s difficult to assess everything properly. I could have eaten plate after plate of oysters and that fish and fennel salad. The ham was good but I doubt I’d eat stargazer again.
