Christmas Turkey in Johor from Niniq
Niniq Christmas Traditional Roast Turkey RM268 (10% early bird discount before 30 Nov 2013)
I can feel Chistmas Day coming :D
Rachael from Niniq invited me to visit their outlet in Taman Setia Tropika (Niniq has another outlet in Taman Pelangi). She wanted us to try Niniq's traditional Christmas turkey.
Niniq's roasted golden brown plump turkey is made with 4.5kg to 5.2kg USA Halal certified birds.
Angela, Niniq's owner, carving the juicy big bird.
I had one of the huge roast turkey drumsticks :D
The surprisingly juicy carved roast turkey breast.
The secret of Niniq's sweet and juicy turkey revealed :P Instead of the traditional bread crumb stuffing which tends to leech out the natural juices from the turkey, making it fibrous and dry, Niniq uses chopped unions, carrots, celery and other juicy vegetables. The juicy vegetables release their natural sweet juices during roasting and blend with the turkey's juices.
The result is a tender and juicy turkey breast that has that unique turkey flavour brought out by the vegetable juices. I love it :D
Roasted chunky potato wedges.
I love Niniq's cranberry jam which is made from scratch with real cranberries. I can taste the cranberries and feel the fleshy pulp of the berries. Naturally sweet and mildly tangy without the sugariness of factory jams. Goes really well with the turkey.
Aiyoh.... the brown sauce was soo.... good, I was slurping spoonfuls of it neat. Made with drippings from roasting the turkey, it has the body and full flavoured savoury goodness of the bird's natural juices plus the juices from the vegetable stuffing. Savoury, sweet and not overly salty at all. Love it.
Niniq is offering this roast turkey with roast potatoes, garden salad with cranberry and brown sauces at RM268 each.
