It is that time of year again - Christmas. Probably one of Singapore's favourite festive seasons with lots of parties and christmas dinners. So where are the places which are having x'mas specials and promotion this year, this is one of them - Morganfield's
Morganfield's - Home of Sticky bones is an American diner which specialises in ribs and meat. I was fortunate to be invited for their X'mas media tasting and was blown away by some of their dishes which will only be available during this X'mas period. Also, for dinner parties and takeaways, Morganfield's will deliver their meats and christmas specials anywhere around our sunny island to your doorstep from 15 November to 28 December 2014.
The Christmas drinks

What's christmas without a drink or two? Morganfield's has a couple of X'mas selections from sangria to a litre's worth of beer. Santa's big mug as the owner calls it - a blend of american craft and kronenbourg blanc. If you are a craft beer person, santa's private reserve ale will be your best friend for the night - not really my cup of tea due to the bitter aftertaste.

Christmas Hazelnut Roast Chicken ($28.90)
A first time having hazelnut flavored chicken. Marinated with rogue hazlenut brown nectar and roasted until brown. Accompanied with potates and chestnuts. Quite a huge chicken as you can see, probably around 800g. Found the chicken a tad too dry for my liking.
Bourbon Marmalade Glazed Leg of Ham ($168.90)
Its name burdened the dish with much expectation and I would say, it did not disappoint. This whole leg of ham weighs approximately 4-5 kg and when it was displayed, drew the 'wahhs' and 'woahs' from the table. That outer glazed was fantastically yummy. Aside, its interior was juicy and tender. Probably the highlight of the night and I would come back here just for this. However, you need a large group because 4kg worth of ham is indeed a sight to behold and finish.
Morgan's Christmas Feast ($149.90)
If you prefer a mix of items, this platter will spoil you. As many as 11 different food - grilled sausages, two different type of ribs, the glazed ham slices, smoked turkey and siders (potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans and corn bread). This platter is probably good for 4. The Corn bread was especially good, seldom can you find this american dish here in Singapore, and i loved every crumb of it.
That incredible starter - beer candied bacon ($8.90)
This glass of heaven - the beer candied bacon. Perhaps the dish better than the leg of ham. Accompanied with the X'mas beers, you can finish this sinful treat in seconds. Glazed in Morganfield's secret recipe, I doubt you can find a bacon as good as this elsewhere.
Basketful of pork
Pork at their various ends. The beer candied bacon appears again! The pop corn pork was very floury. Sliced pork Bratwurst which was a real treat. Great for sharing and married with beer.
The interior - stewed cranberries and cubed peaches form the base. A portion of crumble (which was not enough) above, finished by a scoop of vanilla. Comfort X'mas dessert.
overall review: A great X'mas feats awaits. There items that lost the plot but there were the awesome ones like the beer candied bacon as well as that slab of glazed ham. Great for a large group to share. What's best, you can order those mains and Morganfield will deliver it to your doorstep. However, do order early as they may be sold out!
