From Mandarin Orchard Singapore
Much like how the three wise men traversed across the Orient to meet the baby Jesus, it’s said that loyal customers from around the region specifically head to Mandarin Orchard every year for its honey-glazed gammon ham. Yeah, it’s that good.
Available until December 31, advance order of three working days required.
From PARKROYAL on Pickering
Go traditional when you order a roasted turkey with chestnut stuffing from Lime. The bird is available in 4 and 6 kilograms, but for a fuss-free feast, go for the Wonder-full Celebration Set ($118), which comes with honey-baked ham, three log cakes and a pre-carved turkey.
Available until December 25, advance order of three working days required.
From The Carvery at Park Hotel Alexandra
If a whole turkey is too large for your party, opt for the spit-roasted chicken from The Carvery instead. The 1.8-kilogram bird can comfortably feed six people, and for $30 more, you’ll also get a bottle of wine with your order.
Available from December 9 to 29, advance order of three working days required.
From The Westin Singapore
Every Christmas feast needs a stunning centerpiece like The Westin Singapore’s apple-glazed turkey. The seven-kilogram bird is served with roasted potatoes, vegetables, chestnut stuffing, cranberry and port wine sauce – more than enough food to feed the extended family.
Available from December 1 to 31, advance order of three working days required.
From Ryan’s Grocery
Have a big Christmas party planned? This set from Ryan’s Grocery comes with a whole US roast turkey (5 kilograms), organic and grass-fed roast beef (2 kilograms) and honey-baked ham (1 kilogram) to ensure your guests will have more than enough to eat.
Available from December 1 to 31, advance order of five working days required.
From Park Bench Deli
If it’s a casual Christmas gathering you’re throwing, keep things simple by ordering a 1.7-kilogram log of Porchetta from Park Bench Deli. The Italian answer to sio bak takes the Park Bench boys 24 hours to prepare: it soaks in a fennel-based marinade before being slow-roasted until you’re left with moist flesh, a creamy layer of fat and a crisp crackling. It’s also available in sandwich form ($16), finished with caramelised onions and arugula, from the shop.
Available from December 1 to 30, advance order of three working days required.
From Punjab Grill
Shy away from the usual Christmas turkey and order a Tandoori-grilled one from Punjab Grill instead. Marinated with yogurt and spices, you can be sure that your bird won’t be bland, especially since it’s also stuffed with fragrant truffle rice, too.
Available from December 15 to 31, advance order of two working days required.
