Jouer’s Christmas Feast ($2,888 serves 8-10 diners) highlights the best of winter's ingredients. Offering a playful twist on the traditional Christmas feast, Jouer transforms the signature Chinese dish eight treasure duck into a maple-roasted duck with eight treasure stuffing, while the classic beef Wellington gets upgraded to a Wellington Iberico pork, and side dishes like the lap cheung (Chinese sausage) potato gratin offer a distinctly Hong Kong flavour. We recommend ending the meal with the sticky toffee pudding, but the newly launched roasted figs and blueberry pie are the perfect vegan and gluten-free dessert option.

Each feast is lovingly made to order so allow for five business days to prepare (orders placed after 2pm require an extra day). Order online here.

Since opening about six months ago, Yakinikumafia has quickly become a neighbourhood favourite when it comes to Wagyu. If you’re not a huge fan of turkey, try replacing it with the premium Ozaki beef offered in Yakinikumafia’s Christmas takeaway bundles for two (from $2,080) or four diners (from $3,280). Featuring a platter of fatty, medium-fatty, and lean wagyu cuts (known as ‘FML’ altogether), bottles of yuzu IPA, as well as various sides like fresh goma salad, truffle salt edamame, and more, these bundles are your food tickets to Japan this Christmas.

Don’t have a grill at home? Fret not friends, as an Iwatani gas grill can be purchased with these sets for an extra $600. For more information, contact Yakinikumafia at 3105 1250, or order these bundles on Deliveroo.
