Christmas is the time of gifting, receiving, and most important of all, feasting. Bring your loved ones together for a meal this Christmas season – from the usual turkey and log cakes, to steak and seafood and everything else between. These specially curated Christmas menus will surely get you in the festive mood.

Autumn/ winter 

The best of the season lands on the table at Vue. Head up to the breathtaking restaurant, located on the 19th storey of OUR Bayfront, and settle down by the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook Marina Bay. The menu has been tweaked to showcase autumn and winter produce. A four-course prix fixe dinner might start with appetisers of Japanese mackerel, brightened with pickled apples and horseradish-tinged yoghurt sauce; or Norwegian red king crab salad which flips the usual ratio with a generous handful of shredded meat, its natural sweetness balanced with baby zucchini and marinated watermelon. Then, whet the appetite with tempura-style fried root vegetables, dusted with sweet paprika; and signature uni risotto that packs intense cheesiness and creaminess in every mouthful. 

Mains remain equally hearty. Barramundi fillet is cooked within parchment paper to seal in all its natural juices, while Grilled Iberico pork is laced with pineapple-spiced marinade and dressed with an Abode-Inspired tangy sauce. Then, round off the meal with a Mont Blanc parfait or French acacia honey cake, and toast to the prime sunset views with a basil-scented spritz ($24) or the delightfully floral Ispahan ($22) shaken with raspberry-infused gin and rose and lychee liqueur.

From Nov 20 to Jan 2 2022

Missed the free-flowing food from buffet lines? Beach Road Kitchen is bringing that back with its festive Chefs-on-Show Buffet (from $78) from Fridays to Sundays. Partake in unlimited servings of artisan cheeses and cured meats, seafood on ice, and freshly baked pasta. As its name suggests, swing by the carving stations for slivers of roasted turkey and honey-glazed ham; or check out live cooking stations where bowls of pappardelle or char-grilled meats are prepped fresh upon order. 

Nearing Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the menu comes further lavished with Norwegian salmon wellington, pan-seared foie gras, roasted truffle duck with black lentils, and more festive pass-arounds. Be sure to come in loose pants.
