Criteria for Xmas dining:
(a) Christmas dinner has to be Western food.
(b) it has to be fine dining or at least above-mid-range dining to celebrate a year’s of hard work.
(c) it has to be fun and Christmassy.
In no particular order,
1. White Rabbit (Fusion) – See review
Reasons: great and fun ambience in an old church, good for groups of friends and making new friends, great food, great service. Prices range: $48 to over $100. (If you need the festive menu, you can email me.)
3. Bronte (Australian/ Fusion) – See review
Reasons: Do Australians celebrate Xmas since it’s summer in Australia? Although the restaurant is a little out of the way, Chef Justin Wong gives us his interpretation of Xmas by a 7-course menu at only $70! Children under 14 eat at half price. Menu available on Facebook.
4. Brasserie Les Saveurs (French/ buffet) – See review
Reasons: A palatial restaurant that makes you feel like royalty. Well-crafted buffet selection, specializing in French cuisine. But nothing beats these three words: I LOVE YOU. Kidding. It’s “Free-flow alcohol.” Prices from $150++. Email me for Xmas eve dinner and NYE dinner menu with a glass of champagne. Xmas and New Year are buffet style, open bar.
5. Gunther’s (French) – See review
Reasons: #14 in Asia’s top restaurants list on Miele Guide. A dark and sexy restaurant, a place you’d likely see starlets and their sugar daddies. Mindblowing food. Price range: $380. (If you need the festive menu, you can email me.)
Special Mention (Mid-range dining):
Brotzeit (Bavarian/German) – see review
Reasons: casual dining for large groups, and seasonal food and beer make it very Christmassy.
Disclaimer: We may not have tasted the festive menus for these restaurants but over the past year or two, we have personally visited these restaurants. We don’t churn out lists based on research or hearsay.
