No Christmas is complete without a feast or two. This December, go big or go home (oh wait, you’re already there). Tickle your fancies with a range of casual dining bundles—classic roast turkeys, good ol’ pizzas, fries, and the occasional jazzy twist such as pasta stir-fried in Hong Kong style. You know the drill: Click to order and WFH (wait from home) as the hot meals arrive straight to your doorstep. No fuss, no muss.
Why choose between Asian and Western when you can have the best of both worlds? AMICI’s Raccolta Party Pack (from $108) flaunts a delightful roast turkey — we recommend the citrus lemongrass or BBQ tandoori flavours — while bringing an Asian twist to familiar favourites with the inclusion of fusilli pasta cooked Chinese style and tom yam roasted potatoes.
2. ChopS! Grill & Sides
The grand daddy of casual dining sets is the XXL Platter ($59.90) from ChopS!. No prizes for guessing what’s in it; the name says it all. Every surf and turf possibility is there — Grilled Cajun Chicken, Spice BBQ Lamb Shank, Panfry Norwegian Salmon, Australian Grain Fed Ribeye Steak and more. And they come with 10 delicious sidekicks too (mac n’ cheese, shoestring fries, coleslaw, aglio olio pasta, etc). No one could possibly leave feeling hungry.
3. Lino Restaurant & Bar
A go-to for authentic Italian food, LINO serves up some of the most delicious Italian plates out there. Have a buon natale (merry Christmas) with the LINO Quadruple ($90) set, which has two starters and a choice of four pizzas or pastas. Just reading options alone—Pork Bolognese Garganelli, Beef & Pork Meatball Tagliatelle, Carbonara Chitarra, etc—would make you salivate. Vegetarians, fret not, you’re invited to the party. There’re options such as Spinach Ricotta Ravioli ($25.70) and Mixed Mushrooms pizza ($27.80). Buon appetito!
4. Marché Mövenpick Restaurants
If you have always wanted rösti, sausages and eggs as a Christmas meal, but didn’t want to flit from stall to stall at the Marche Movenpick food hall, the solution is here. Order all that and then some with the Marche Movenpick sharing bundles (starting from $99), which comprise fried eggs, sausages, Swiss rösti, calamari, slow-roasted chicken and pork knuckle. Close your eyes for a moment, and you could be in Switzerland (don’t forget to jingle a cow bell for effect).
Fun fact: Do you know that Peperoni Pizzeria belongs to the Les Amis Group? Yep, the same people behind three Michelin-starred Les Amis restaurant. While both cuisines are as different as light and day, Peperoni’s unique wood-fired pizzas, especially the gigantic 21″ XXL ones, are hot weekend favourites. Now you don’t have to jostle with the crowd on Christmas to eat them. Simply order in Peperoni’s Speciale Combo for four ($80) which gives two pizzas and two antipastos (the Carne and Burrata & Prosciutto pizzas would add lovely red-and-green Christmas colours to the table). And go ahead to pile on the extra toppings (parma ham on top of the Carne pizza? Yes please!), nobody will be judging.
