HO HO HO SAY LIAO. It’s another round of Christmas feasting! From turkey to log cakes, to steak and seafood and everything else between. Here’s our specially curated places for a memorable Christmas in Singapore 2019.
First up Porta. This restaurant is a restaurant-cum-grocer serving modern European cuisine. The decor has a nice modern colonial vibe and the place is kids friendly. It is helm by executive chef Michael Suyanto who has spent 12 years cooking in the kitchens of luxury hotels and the Les Amis Group.
Its festive menu ($66 for four courses) is a non traditional Christmas meal, without the usual turkey and what not, but the meal is just as enjoyable and celebratory. Warm up your belly with a potato leek soup crowed with a Hokkaido scallop, then dig into the juicy Lobster Thermidor topped with creamy cheese.
For mains, choose between Black Cod in tangy tomato base,or a non-seafood signature that brims with intense umami flavour profile – a wonderfully braised Beef Tenderloin in Red Wine Sauce and king oyster mushroom, and end off your meal with a Christmas Cake dusted with cinnamon and gold powder for a sparkly, festive touch.
We recommend Brut Premier Cru as your wine pairing to elevate the taste for each dish.
Date: 23 – 25, 30 – 31 December
Time: 6.30pm – 10.30pm
Price: $66++ per person (without pairing) Add additional $50++ per person for Cattier Champagne Flight Pairing (a glass of Brut Icône, Dry Rosé and Brut Premier Cru)
