Office Christmas parties aren’t going to be the same this year, no thanks to Covid-19. So, if you’ve been tasked to plan one, we completely understand the pressure. Although large-scale, company-wide events with the usual buffet spreads may not be all that feasible, a memorable while safely distanced celebration is still very much possible with set.

Need ideas for your corporate event food orders for the company Christmas lunch, or festive meal boxes dropped off to each employee working from home for a virtual get-together?

Here’re 8 bento deliveries from restaurants in Singapore that’ll surely fit the bill for an x-tra Xmas party!
