Roast Turkey and Yule Logs and Prime Rib and Champagne, oh my! It’s the most wonderful time of year: our roundup of the best festive dining for Christmas and New Year’s in Singapore!
If you won’t be going away or traveling home this Christmas, mama, we highly suggest treating yourself to a decadent meal or two over the holidays. There’s no better way to celebrate with family and friends than to come together over well-prepared classics like turkey, ham, roast beef, and of course sweet treats like fruit cake and yule log.

Start making those bookings, and check out our gallery for some special perks for Sassy Mamas!
We’ve long loved SuperNature for their wide range of healthy and organic fresh fruits, veggies, meats and other ingredients, but did you know they’ve got a special holiday range as well, mama?
