1/5 Como Cuisine
Continue the merriment until brunch on Christmas Day. Chef de cuisine Tshering Lhaden makes it worth the trip with a brunch menu that includes reimagined Christmas favourites. The panettone is presented as French toast, stacked with mascarpone, clemetines and raspberries, while the turkey has been remade as a thick burger heaped with gruyere cheese, cabbage slaw, pickle onion chips.

If you don’t feel like preparing your Christmas eve feast, take your family to this Italian restaurant instead for a delicious meal. After a luscious starter of caviar, almond and quince, you’ll also dig into the indulgent razor clam fettucine brightened by notes of yuzu, and the delectably cooked Challans duck bedecked with walnuts and persimmons. End the meal with the silky and sweet pumpkin pie.

3/5 Opus Bar & Grill
You can never have too much meat this Christmas, so just enjoy the restaurant’s semi-buffet offerings served on Christmas and New Year’s eve. It includes a selection of six main courses such as the slow-cooked smoked Australian Wagyu short ribs, basil-crusted black cod and turkey roulade stuffed with cranberry and brie. Don’t forget about the unlimited spread of seafood on ice, as well as the six-metre dessert showcase from D9 Cakery.
4/5 The Song of India
This Christmas, chef Manjunath Mural hopes to “create the same memories of warmth and homeliness that I experienced in my youth during this month”. And for him, the best part was when everybody came together to share food and drinks.
Which is why his signature tandoori turkey stuffed with morel biryani is back again on the menu. Mural prepares this by marinating the bird overnight in a blend of Kashmiri chilli powder, tandoori garam masala, mustard oil and cumin. It’s grilled in the tandoor oven and served with a tomato-based wine sauce.
5/5 Teppan by Chef Yonemura
For this festive season, chef Masayasu Yonemura has cooked up a special five-course menu, served until January 1. His signature Japanese-French style of cooking is evident in signatures like the Japanese flounder fish carpaccio elevated with creamy uni; Japanese mushroom soup redolent with notes of truffles; and A4 Kagoshima Wagyu beef steak cooked with much theatrics on the teppan grill.
