‘Tis the season to be jolly! With Christmas just a few weeks away, we’re making a (nice) list of all the best Christmas food in Singapore and places you can head to for some festive cheer! Here are some of the places we think are worth the calories:
Goodwood Park Hotel
This year, check out the Soy-braised Turkey served with Toasted Almonds and Homemade Chilli Sauce for takeaway at The Deli in Goodwood Park Hotel. The turkey is slow cooked for about two hours to achieve its juicy texture and strong flavours.
Also available for takeaway, try the Breaded Turkey Rillettes ‘Cheong Fun’ with Creamy Tarragon Dip, as well as the Mini Turkey Char Siew Po Lo Buns. They’re extremely addictive and are great as a party snack!
Mercure Hotel Singapore Bugis
Here’s another Asian-style turkey dish. The 7-Spices Turkey with Homemade Chilli Sauce is making a comeback at Royale in Mercure Hotel Singapore Bugis this festive season. But be warned, the chilli sauce that comes with this is pretty spicy! Available as part of the Santa’s Christmas Circus Buffet from $48++ per adult, don’t forget to book your table online here.
Novotel Clarke Quay
Like to keep your turkey traditional and simple? Head over to The Square Restaurant in Novotel Clarke Quay for a classic Roasted Turkey with Cranberry Sauce. As part of the festive buffet, make sure you try out the other festive dishes, such as the Salt Crusted Sea Bass, Roasted Beef Strip Loin with Grain Mustard Sauce, Roasted Lamb Leg with Rosemary Sauce and the must-try Roasted Honey Baked Ham with Pineapple & Orange Herb Sauce.
Delifrance is your one-stop spot for everything you need to have a magical Christmas meal. From its Traditional Roasted Turkey ($128), Roasted Beef Striploin ($85) and Honey Glazed Ham ($58), to its Gingerbread Loaf with Icing ($15.90), Christmas Muffins ($16) and the Joy of Delifrance log cake ($68), get ready to stuff your bellies!
Christmas is all about the spirit of sharing. And what better way to celebrate this than at Brotzeit with its Christmas Platter that has a bit of everything and something for everyone. Expect a large serving platter with honey-baked Christmas ham, venison and veal sausages, oven-roasted pork roulade, and Brotzeit’s signature oven-roasted crispy pork knuckle, served with a side of truffle mash and winter vegetables.

Don’t miss out on Pezzo's five brand-new gourmet local pizza flavours: Hainanese Chicken Rice Pizza, Kebab Boom Boom! Pizza, Fiery Hot Chick Pizza, Satay Sedap Pizza, and Santa’s Surprise Pizza. We especially love the Hainanese Chicken Rice Pizza, with fragrant chicken rice, roasted chicken, fresh cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, topped with chili sauce and melted mozzarella cheese. The pizzas will be selling at $5.90 per slice, and $29.90 per pan.
Eggs 'n Things
Enjoy Christmas brunch over at Eggs 'n Things! We especially loved the Eggs Benedict with Foie Gras and Caramalised Banana, which was simply luxurious! Or feast on a selection of classic traditional delights on the Eggs 'n Things Christmas Platter, featuring red wine grilled chicken, smoked turkey breast, baked honey ham, truffle mashed potato and roasted pineapple. Don't forget to end your meal on a sweet note with the Apple Crumble Pancakes and the surprisingly yummy Candied Bacon Chocolate Milkshake.
