Other meaty treats to supplement, or replace the Christmas turkey.
Fusion mainstay restaurant Morsels is offering a szechuan pepper and peppercorn-rubbed nitrate-free gammon ham this year, which comes with a set that includes other goodies like truffled chicken liver pate, homemade heirloom tomato jam, and a bottle of Domaine Celine & Laurent Tripoz, Cremant de Bourgogne Nature. Don't forget to pick up some of the restaurant's signature pickles and ferments – like the umami-rich oyster mushroom kimchi.
If you want to sample from a wide range of restaurants this holiday season, 1-Group is offering customers the chance to build their own festive bundle with dishes across the group's stable of restaurants. Options abound, including Stellar at 1-Altitude, Summerhouse, and Monti. Meat lovers will appreciate the Christmas menu from the lattermost – a bundle that includes a fatty, meaty cotechino (an Italian-style pork sausage), honey-baked ham, and tender, crisp-skinned porchetta with fig jam and a morello cherry sauce. Comes with a side of roasted pumpkin mash, and tiramisu for dessert.
Skipping the turkey this year? Parkroyal Collection, Marina Bay Singapore's 1.5kg slow-roasted, spice-rubbed tomahawk will make an equally meaty centrepiece for your feast. The 180-day grain fed beef steak comes with sauteed vegetables and a red wine sauce. Also on the menu is a roasted lamb rack, which comes lightly coated in chocolate, brandied fruit, and nuts.
Bring a taste of fine dining to your festivities this year with Saint Pierre's festive takeaway. Indulge in options like green tea-smoked cherry salmon (great on some toasted bagels the next day); and Armagnac-marinated foie gras terrine. You can also get hearty mains like a 200 day aged Angus ribeye en croute; as well as a whole roasted capon chicken.
For a full beer-filled experience this season, look no further than Heart of Darkness' festive offerings. Highlights from their takeaway menu include a hefty Black Angus prime rib, and beef wellington that's given a lighter touch with filo pastry. Don't forget their moreish beer-marinated olives, and a selection of their house-brewed craft beers to complete your feast.
