5 Best Restaurants For a Non-Traditional Christmas Meal

Here at Sassy Mama HQ, the Christmas festivities start early. Like, really early in October when we start planning our calendar for what’s to come, so by the time mid-December rolls around, we’re really tired of gingerbread men and we just want to pop that bottle of bubbly for a midday swig already. Luckily, there are a handful of restaurants in Singapore that put a new spin on the usual turkey-and-stuffing festive menu. We rounded up our favourites so you don’t have to stress your pretty selves…

Esquina
If you’ve never tried tapas bar Esquina before, you’ve been missing out. But better late than never, they say – and it’s better now because you get to sample some of the spot’s much talked-about Festive Dinner Tasting Menu which includes their Champagne & Eggnog cocktail and a Venison & Foie Gras Wellington. Sure you may not be in Spain and you won’t be served a traditional Spanish tortilla with your cerveza, but it’s definitely a spot you have to try before 2014 is over.

Oxwell & Co
We’re big fans of Oxwell & Co’s gin and tonics mama, and for good reason. They brew their gin in-house (in a cauldron in the back alleys of Chinatown, we imagine) and use a cornucopia of local spices. Their Christmas offerings don’t disappoint either; think Turkey with Truffle & Foie Gras Stuffing plus Blackforest Parfait? We’re sold.

The Disgruntled Chef
Located at the food enclave that is Dempsey Hill, The Disgruntled Chef offers both a change of scenery and a drool-worthy Festive Prix Fixe Three-Course Menu that includes Turkey Roulade with chestnut stuffing and Chocolate Chestnut Tart. They also offer festive lunches, so if you’re planning one for the fam, this is the perfect place worth leaving the house for.

The Royal Mail
If the festive season is an excuse for you to dress the family up in their Christmas best, The Royal Mail is where you should be dining at. Located at the Ascott, The Royal Mail takes its inspiration from a vintage brass mail chute – think Old World elegance of the days of yore where letter-writing and drop waist dresses were all the rage. Try their Christmas 4-Course Set Dinner – a hearty set which includes stand-outs like Chestnut Soup and Candied Hazelnut and Devon Cream Log Cake served with Warm Morello Cherry Stew.

The Study
The only studying you’ll be doing is that of the menu, and you’ll be tested on what delicious cocktail to order next. A hop and a skip away from a bunch of hipster bars and restaurant, The Study stands out for their attention-to-detail, with everything from service, to food and drinks. While we have spent a pretty penny on their alcoholic concoctions, their festive menu is one not to be missed. Forget everything you know about Christmas dinners, you’re going to be floored by their Jerusalem Artichoke and Chestnut Soup with Truffle Cream, Roast turkey and confit leg and the pièce de résistance, their Duck Fat Roast Potatoes, which are worth breaking every single diet for.

What are your weekend plans with the kiddos? Mine are usually spent trying to find outdoor activities for my boys to expend their energy. One of our favourites is spending time by the sea, in fact most of our family holidays are in tropical locations by the beach. My boys have never seen snow so I’ve been thinking I should take them somewhere cold for a change! Any ideas where? Don't forget to check IG stories to see what I am up to tonight!

What’s your personal mama style? Having been part of a fashion business over the last 10 years (alongside my mum and sister) at @luxe_fashion_boutique, I have seen so many trends come and fade away. I love classic and timeless maxi dresses which defines my style and personality. I also prefer to invest in quality pieces that will last the test of time. ⠀
