From contemporary Italian cuisine to a New Zealand-styled grill bar and a Spanish tapas place, here are a few great places to cozy up with family and friends during the holidays.
My Little Spanish Place
If you like their Bukit Timah location, have a holiday meal at their new riverside outpost. Famous for their fuss-free, home-style Spanish dishes, they’ve got a $188 Christmas menu for two featuring classics like their roasted suckling pig, seafood paella and fried chorizo amongst others. 54 Boat Quay, 6532-0665, www.mylittlespanishplace.com.sg
The New Zealand-style grill is all about premium, grain-fed meats grilled using Japanese techniques. For Christmas, they’re doing an affordable set menu ($60), with dishes like poached prawns, charcoal-fired foie gras, roasted cod and fire-grilled lamb. Don’t forget to wash it down with a bottle of NZ wine. 70 Boat Quay, 6438-6321, www.wakanui.com.sg
The big draw here is of course the dizzying selection of 200 beers from over 80 countries, but check out their $68 Christmas platter, big enough for three: it comes with a beef Wellington with mushroom and truffle duxelles and ample sides of roasted veggies. 6 Eu Tong Sen Street, The Central #01-70 6222-1887, www.sque.com.sg
It’s an institution when it comes to raucous get-togethers, and Christmas is no different. Top off your ale-filled Christmas night with a special deal on their dessert: Harry’s Signature Sticky Date Toffee Pudding is $14—did we mention it comes with vanilla ice cream? 28 Boat Quay, 6538-3029, www.harrys.com.sg
The riverside steak and seafood joint has a special three-course Christmas menu for a very reasonable $68. Choose from dishes like their lobster bisque, Australian tenderloin, tiger prawn and salmon. Perfect padding for a long night out. You can wine and dine aboard Singapore’s last pair of surviving Tongkang boats. #01-06 Clarke Quay, 3D River Valley Rd, 6333-4868, www.hotstones.com.sg
Fremantle Seafood Market
You certainly don’t have to wait for a special occasion to chow down at this seafood stalwart, but they do have a four-course Christmas menu that’s worth a look. The $88 price tag includes your choice of the whole lobster Momay and the whole lobster
thermidor, and the meal comes with a special Freemantle Christmas Cocktail. #01-05 Clarke Quay, 3E River Valley Rd, 6337-1838, www.fremantleseafoodmarket.com.sg
Circular Road’s industrial-chic Italian restaurant has an extra decadent Christmas Season Lobster Pasta ($18), involving hand-made spaghetti, chunks of juicy lobster and a herbalicious tomato sauce. 23 Circular Road, 6223-5001, www.marcomarco.com.sg
