Bobby's Christmas Set Menu

Bobby's all set up for Christmas
Bobby's at Cuppage Terrace recently unveiled its Christmas menu to media and bloggers at a tasting session. It's rather nice to think about Christmas, isn't it? Especially amidst this recent financial gloom and doom. Some cheer for the spirit, perhaps. Of course, it might be a less festive Christmas, if there's less money in the bank. But one would be rich if you still have family to enjoy the season with. Togetherness above mindless expenditure, I say.

Festive Tossed Salad with Honey Baked Ham
But wallet-friendly feasting is always a plus. Let's take a look at Bobby's three-course menu (S$35++ per pax, from 15-23 December). It begins with a Festive Tossed Salad with Honey Baked Ham. Colourful, for sure, with the baked ham chopped into fine pieces like confetti. However, I think it might have been better in fewer pieces but larger slices, as the tangy vinaigrette overwhelmed the ham's delicate flavour.

Tasting portions of dory and beef
For the mains, choose between:
- Grilled dory fillet with sorrel cream sauce atop a bed of pumpkin mash (far right). This was delicious. I ate the steamed vegetables (centre) with the sauce as well.
- Fillet of beef wtih signature mushroom sauce (far left)
- Grilled turkey breast topped with chestnut stuffing and giblet gravy side with cranberry sauce (not served, so not in photo).
I'm sorry I can't show you what the full portion is like - these are merely tasting samples.

Fillet of Beef with Signature Mushroom Sauce
Here's a clearer photo of the beef, which was quite tender. However, I am never fond of Western-style brown sauces, so I ended up preferring the Dory to the beef.

Chocolate Log Cake
Rounding off the meal is a piece of chocolate log cake - light yet dense, not extremely sweet or chocolatey. I have never taken to log cakes, despite their popularity. Besides the reminder that you might be eating a piece of fireplace fodder, the taste itself is generally rather bland. Discussion at the table turned to brownies, lava or fondant cakes and other forms of chocolate delights. Aaahh.

The Christmas set menu is available from 15-23 December 2008, at S$35++ per pax.

Sample of Bobby's signature BBQ ribs
However, if you'd rather have a house party than dine out, you can still enjoy Bobby's treats. Their signature BBQ babyback ribs are available for takeaway, sold by weight (I'll include the prices later when I get them). Pop them into the oven just before serving.

Daily Set Lunch Choices
If you aren't into the festive menu, there are other choices. Bobby's offers affordable lunch sets from S$14-18, with free-flow Coke/Sprite. These actually look more interesting to me, but I reckon portions will be smaller than the a la carte versions.

Check here for Keropokman's review. Southernoise was also there (I'm still waiting to link to his writeup). We met Yung Yih of HungryGoWhere too!

  1. Wow, an exclusive coverage on Bobby's Christmas Menu. I like their baby back ribs, not overly sweet and tender.

    The beef fillet looks so yummy but not sure what they have on the menu since it is subjected to changes. At least, the menu offered on my previous 2 visits at Chijmes are different.

    I notice this menu is only available till 23rd Dec, did they mentioned what will be available on Christmas Eve and Christmas?

  2. Hiya :) erm is Bobby's = Bobby Rubino?? haven been there in ages!

    ESBM :P

  3. isn't kind of early to think of xmas? but then again people always start early having promotions and sales. lol!

    i like your dory fillet picture. nice shot : )

  4. Delicious BBQ babyback ribs!

    You have a nice blog with beautiful photos...

  5. Fen: nah, not exclusive. It was a media/blogger event, so quite a few others were there. Keropokman's review is out too. Southernoise also went. You might see more in print/radio later on. Yeah, agree their ribs are not overly sweet. The beef fillet should be on the Xmas menu during those days. Hmm, they didn't mention what they will have during Xmas eve and Xmas itself.

    ESBM: Yes, Bobby's used to be Bobby Rubino's but they got bought over. So under new management, new branding and all. But food and concept is more or less same, I think.

    Btw, you can use the OpenID or Name/URL option when commenting. :)

    LIC: thanks! Actually, not really early. Dept stores are already playing Christmas carols!

    cklam: thank you!
