The Fe(a)stive Season!

[ Christmas blogpost (part 2) by Tania H. ]

In part two of my foodie blogpost for Christmas, we move on to the festive themed menus around the restaurants this December. Give mom a break from the stove or your wife for that matter and take them out for a festive feast followed by a stroll to Singapore’s tallest Christmas tree at Resorts World.

A picture speaks a thousand words and I’m sure the shot below speaks volumes to your parotid gland. Are you salivating yet?

Grainge Black Angus Beef Striploin MS 3
Titled Grainge Black Angus Beef Striploin MS 3 with creamed chestnut, roasted artichoke, field mushrooms and bacon beef glace sand, this is one of Osia’s main highlights on the Christmas menu, available both on Christmas Eve and the day itself.  If you haven’t tried Osia’s cuisine by Australian celebrity chef Scott Webster, it’s a reflection of Australia’s cultural melting pot. Showcasing the freshest produce from the Land Down Under, beautiful ingredients are transformed into morsels of goodness on the plate with an adept chef’s hand which practices absolute meticulous finesse. 

Valrhona Hot Chocolate Soup

At $180++ per head, you’ll also get to taste Chef Webster’s legendary Valrhona Hot Chocolate Soup. It’s a larva cake but without the cake. Some guests have commented it’s better than S.E.X. Yum!

Palio turkey ravioli served with its own gravy topped with pomegranate seeds

If you’re looking for something hearty, the food at Palio will have you licking your lips all the way home. Serving authentic Tuscan cuisine, our Italian chefs have come up with a Christmas menu that’s exciting yet familiar. Featuring the Turkey ravioli as seen above, Pan-seared Monkfish served with fine beans in Prosecco wine and caviar sauce, and the decadent Pandoro Christmas cake served with Panettone flavored ice cream and warm chocolate sauce as dessert, your family will be pleased. The 5-course Christmas Eve set dinner is at $88++ per head.

Rib eye Tagliata with cannellini beans purée, roasted figs and brandy sauce
On Christmas day itself, Palio will be serving the Rib eye Tagliata and other delicious items on its 4-course set dinner menu at $68++.

If buffet is more your thing, Starz at Hard Rock Singapore has a wide array of seafood including beef carpaccio, baby octopus with sesame, cold appetizers and excellent Chinese food for the whole family. For Christmas, we’re throwing in a plump roast turkey stuffed with chestnut, my favourite stollen, pudding drenched in chocolate sauce and lots more. There’s even a dedicated Indian live station for those piping hot pratas and a Japanese station for fresh sashimi and sushi! Starz’ Christmas Eve international buffet dinner is at $98++ per guest and on Christmas day itself, international buffet brunch at $88++.

Not forgetting a place where you can party the night away and count the seconds to Christmas Day, come by the Rock Bar where a selection of luscious festive shooters is just an order away. Located at the lobby of Hard Rock Hotel Singapore, our shooters go by quirky names like Electric Blue, MYS-T-VIOUZ and Beary Holiday.

For a refreshing burst of lime, try Electric Blue, designed to jazz up your Christmas, after combining main ingredients of sambuca and bols blue curacao. For MYS-T-VIOUZ, it’s indeed a mysterious potion of Midori Melon, some grenadine syrup and a splash of creamy Baileys Irish Cream (and other secret ingredients), making it the perfect indulgent drink. To relive your childhood, order Beary Holiday, which promises to put on a smile on your face with nostalgic gummy bear lollies.

Performing every Fri and Sat from 8.15pm, you can also catch the live performance of homegrown artists, Zsa and Claire as they blow you away with their awe-inspiring percussion music.

So drop by Resorts World today and celebrate Christmas with us!
