Wondering where to go for a Christmas feast? Look at these options

Christmas is a time to socialise, and a feast is a way to please the crowd.

From an office gathering to a catch-up with friends, food makes it more fun. If you’re stumped for a place to eat, here are some suggestions.

Rempapa always has a good selection of dishes to welcome festivals, and for Christmas, it is chef Damian D’Silva’s take on British classics.

Available from now till Dec 31, and exclusively for takeaways, are four dishes.

The Roast GG French Poulet with Rempapa Spices ($90) is a whole chicken brined with Rempapa’s house-blend of spices in salt, honey, and vinegar for 24 hours, then stuffed with pandan leaves, fresh bay leaves, turmeric leaves, ginger flower, garlic cloves, and lemongrass before it is roasted. 

I love the Spiced Meatloaf with Sambal Mashed Potatoes ($90), which has pork, onion, carrot, and celery, cooked with nutmeg and curry powder. The winning touch is the mashed Australian potatoes laced with sambal.

Both main courses are served with Bubble & Squeak on the side. 

Rempapa’s version of the Sunday staple made with leftovers from the day before has Brussels sprouts, Bombay onions, roasted pork, shallots, and garlic. 

Fans of desserts, try the Spotted Dick with Gula Melaka Custard ($35). This is a steamed pudding served with creme anglaise sweetened with gula melaka. 

If you’re dining in, you can order these as a festive platter ($120, good for four).

For reservations and enquiries, call 9459-1603 or send an E-mail to papa@rempapa.sg.  You can also make online bookings via https://bit.ly/3NIuPq1 or place your orders through Oddle.
