Best Restaurants For A Festive Gathering

Best Restaurants For A Festive Gathering

The best reunion, yet

The Song Of India

The restaurant’s twist on the festive menu isn’t new, but we never fail to look forward to it year after year. There are kebabs, Masala puff pastries, legs of lamb… but our favourite remains The Whole Tandoori Turkey Stuffed with Moral Briyani. While most oven-baked turkeys are shunned at dinner parties due to their dry, overly-roasted meat, this one hits the spot in all the right places. It’s marinated using spices such as mustard oil, cumin, Kashmiri chilli powder and tandoori garam masala overnight, before being grilled in the tandoor oven. Catering for a large party? The One-Michelin star restaurant has designed a hamper that features chef Manjunath Mural’s signature dishes.

Monti at 1-Pavilion

It’s high time we shake these Christmas brunches up a little, and what better way than with a glorious spread of good old Italian fare? Monti will be serving Italian cuisine in the most honourable form this Christmas, and that includes the freshest of seafood, decadent cheese platters and charcuterie, house-made pastas, carved-to-order meats and of course, traditional festive desserts. Did we mention you and your loved ones will be serenaded with live jazz tunes while you satiate your festive cravings? If that’s not the deal breaker, then we do hope the package’s complimentary cruise ride around Marina Bay will prompt you to make reservations now.

The Summerhouse

Have your best Christmas dinner yet under the stars, you hopeless romantics. For a more intimate dining experience with your other halves, The Summerhouse offers just the perfect setting for you through a private, air-conditioned clear igloo dome amidst the lush greenery of the Seletar countryside. Frolic over mouth-watering aperitifs such as the Snow Crab Egg Benedict and White Prawn Cocktail before you dive right into the premium beef, turkey and ham roasts. Our only advice is to save the desserts and Champagne for the star-gazing session- we really can’t think of a more heavenly way to indulge in nectarous fruitcakes, pudding ice cream and Christmas cookies.
