Deadfall at Barbary Coast has been transformed into Christmas on Canal pop up till 27 December 2020 with over the top festive décor and new seasonal food and drink menus. Even the staff are decked in Christmas sweaters or cute tee shirts.
The transformed venue is great for those who are not able to travel to a wintry destination for Christmas. One of the rooms reminds me of the living room of an American home that has been decked out for a white Christmas.
We appreciate what the team at Barbary Coast has done to brighten up an otherwise very dull 2020.
The glassware have also been picked for the festive season. The Christmassy mugs for the Hallelujah Hot Chocolate that comes with a choice of whiskey, bourbon, tequila or rum with melted dark chocolate and marshmallows are way too adorable.
The Ho Ho Holy Sh!t It’s Christmas cocktail of Monkey Shoulder, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Pimento dram, maple and burnt pecan bitters comes in a glass with a Christmas tree on the glass.
The Drunk Uncle Mulled Wine is an addictive one. The warm mix of red wine with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, triple sec, pear, citrus and spices is perfect during this wet cool weather in Singapore.
The Egg Nog is also a winner. Almond milk is used instead of full cream milk so it is not too filling. Why didn’t we think of this earlier.
The festive cocktails are priced at S$20++ each while shots of Christmas Scofflaw and Santa’s Godfather are available at S$10 a pop.
Chef Heryadi has prepared a menu of favourite Christmas dishes. The Argentinian Christmas Carpaccio with spiced pulled pork, red cabbage slaw and smoked gruyere (S$15) as well as the Grinch’s Gratin Dip with brussels sprouts, a selection of four cheeses, apple wood bacon and chestnuts (S$14) are great for sharing.
We highly recommend the Santa’s Helper beef wellington served with mushroom forestiére, sauce chasseur and celeriac puree (S$28) and the traditional Fruit Mince Pies with short crust pastry and port géle (S$10).
