Every celebration begins with a sumptuous feast.
Presents and bonding activities aside, food and drinks are a tried-and-tested way to get the gang together on a cheerful note. Yet, festive dinners are an endeavour that can deplete a large part of your energy when it comes to planning and the actual prep work, but it really doesn’t have to be.
Two options await you if you’re not about to spend extra hours doing the legwork yourself: leave it to the hands of professionals and eat out, or simply pre-order your dishes and desserts and have them skilfully prepared for your home — you just have to plate them to fit your decor.
The best part? Everything is available at the centrally-located Raffles City Singapore. From a casual date night out with cocktails, mains and dessert at PS.Cafe to affordable, fuss-free feasts to take home from CS Fresh, it’s sure to be a night to remember.
From fuss-free dining to sweet and savoury takeaways for your merry feasting at home, Raffles City Singapore has got you covered this Christmas:

PS.Cafe is offering a medley of dishes this year that will whet the appetites of both traditionalist and adventurous diners. After a light but luxurious starter like the Petit Turkey Cranberry Caesar or Baked Brie, get ready to tuck into a menu of hearty mains. The PS. Traditional Christmas Dinner, for instance, has a little of everything that’s perfect for sharing – think succulent oven-roasted turkey, apricot-glazed leg ham, and chestnut and sage stuffing, served with roasted pumpkin, potatoes, and broccoli. Other mouth-watering options like the Lobster Rockefeller & Torn Prawn Linguine and Bacon Wrapped Beef Filet Mignon are also available.
No meal is complete without drinks and desserts. Enjoy a slice of decadent Christmas Sticky Date Pudding, before washing it all down with some yummy cocktails such as the PS. Christmas Cooler and St. Nick Negroni.
PS.Cafe’s Christmas specials will be available from now till 26 December 2022.
Christmas feasting is a fuss-free affair with The Providore. A jug of homemade Sangria is the perfect way to start a celebration, before guests get to dig into mains like Cod Fish, Pan-Seared Pork Cutlets, Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breast and Wagyu Skirt Steak. While we’re sure you’ll be stuffed to the brim with these delicious proteins and the flurry of sides they come with, don’t forget to end the meal with some cake. Cerise is a blush-pink slice that’s topped with decadent milk glaze and yuzu whipped ganache, and cuts open to reveal a juicy dark cherry centre with a tangy tinge of more yuzu.
The Providore’s Christmas menu is available from now till 31 December 2022.
If you prefer dining in the comfort of your home with loved ones, make it an easy affair with the offerings at CS Fresh. Simply pre-order the sets, reheat them at home and dig in — no need for hours of prep work and planning.

Läderach is famous for their opulent (read: sinful) large slabs of FrischSchoggi, and this Christmas, they’re introducing the FrischSchoggi in a snack-friendly form for all to enjoy.
