Spice up the dinner table with some Nonya-inspired festive dishes from The Blue Ginger. The longstanding Peranakan restaurant is putting a twist on the usual roast; spilt the ayam panggang roast chicken ($38), marinated overnight in an aromatic blend of spices. The smaller bird makes it the perfect addition for intimate dinners of five. Oxtail rendang ($48) is another great option, where for-tender meat comes slow-braised in a slick and spicy curry.

There’s also a rosemary and butter-roasted turkey ($158), cooked together with apples, apricots, prunes, and lemons to lend natural sweetness. Sweets are impressive too, with a hojicha yuzu block cake ($89) fashioned to resemble a log; and the butterscotch maple carrot cake ($68), a festive spin on Cedele’s crowd-favourite dessert.
