Planning that Christmas Dinner 2019

Christmas is fast approaching and if you’ve decided not to fold up your sleeves and slave away in the kitchen, we’ve got some options for you to either dine out or order for a meal in! It ranges from the traditional to the ones with an Asian twist. After all, when you’re in Singapore, why not taste the whole melting pot in a meal! So here’s our list of places to go to feast this Christmas that ranges from Asia, the Americas to Europe!

American feasting

Wolfgang Steakhouse

Bring on the Christmas cheer with a New York-inspired festive dinner at the renowned steakhouse with their special menus:

Christmas Party Menu (S$188++/pax; available until 1 January 2020)

Start with a Seafood Platter of Maine lobster, crab, jumbo shrimp (or prawns as we call them here in Singapore) and Fine de Claire Oysters. For entreé, diners can opt for either the USDA Prime Porterhouse Steak (dry-aged for 28 days in an onsite aging box) or the Chilean Seabass and a selection of sides. End the meal with a traditional New York Cheesecake, which pays homage to Wolfgang’s Steakhouse’s home.

Christmas Menu (S$138++/pax; available on 24-25 December 2019)

Begin with a choice of Clear Chicken Soup or Chopped Salad before the seasonal mains of Honey Baked Ham or the flavourful dry-aged Prime Porterhouse Steak. Pair these mains with classic sides such as Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Cream of Corn and Sauteéd Mushrooms with Spinach. Finally, end the meal with a zesty Pumpkin Orange Mousse for that ultimate New York Christmas experience.
