Other than its popular Peranakan fare, the chefs have upped their offerings to include staples such as the honey-baked ham with pineapple glaze, roasted turkey breast with cranberry sauce and turkey jus, and strawberry yoghurt Yule log cake. For an additional $45++ per person, you can enjoy free flow of Moët & Chandon A word of warning: come with an empty stomach. Available from December 15 to 31. Call 6239 1847/48 or email email@example.com for enquiries and reservations. Enjoy a cocktail or two… with tapas You can never have too much food and drinks during the holidays, so a trip to Crossroads Bar is a must when you want to imbibe cocktails paired with gourmet tapas. Here’s an idea: round up your friends and order more to share. You’ve got the plump, pan-seared Hokkaido scallops; drunken mussels with fries; and the escargot à la Bourguignonne. Available from December 4 to 31. Call 6239 1847/48 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries and reservations. Feast on more food At Blue Potato, you can savour a four-course Western set meal comprising traditional festive favourites. The chef teases your palate first with appetisers such as the scampi and crab timbale with greens and caviar dressing, and the wild forest mushroom soup with truffle oil and parmesan biscuit, before going big with the mains. You have two options here: the wagyu beef mignon with all the trimmings or the seared black cod. It may be hard to choose, but don’t worry, both are equally delicious. Save space for dessert! Available from December 1 to 31. Call 6239 1847/48 or email email@example.com for enquiries and reservations. Have a pampering spa session You’ve given your family and friends their presents; now, it’s time to give yourself a treat with a spa session at Pürovel Spa & Sport. A perfect way to re-energise yourself after the Christmas madness (gift shopping, included), a treatment here uses essential oils from Alpine flowers and herbs from Switzerland that works in symmetry with its latest technology. Available from December 1 to 31. Call 6239 1780/83 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
