The festive season is just around the corner, and what better way to spend the most wonderful time of the year than by indulging in a spread of holiday classics? This year, Grand Hyatt Singapore has lined up five mouthwatering buffet concepts at its restaurants to usher in the festivities, as well as a wide range of takeaway offerings and customizable artisanal hampers at its exclusive Christmas shop.
With its indulgent à la carte, buffet dinner and brunch selections, mezza9 is inviting patrons to show their taste buds some love this holiday season. Guests can expect to enjoy generous bites of luxury, as highlights will include red king crab, scallops, butterball turkey, black Angus tenderloin, and grass-fed lamb rack. Thanks to the recent expansion of the restaurant’s Thai kitchen, an array of dishes inspired by the cuisine will also be on offer. For a taste of Italy, head to Pete’s Place, where a varied assortment of antipasti will beckon alongside handcrafted risottos and wood-fired pizzas. Mains will include a Christmas turkey and porchetta with rosemary and garlic, while desserts will range from log cakes to pistachio ice cream. Free-flowing champagne will also be provided, further adding to the year-end festivities.
Meanwhile, StraitsKitchen is set to grace its dishes with authentic local touches. Fusing Chinese, Malay, and Indian classics into scrumptious creations, standouts will range from double-boiled Chinese herbal soup served in a whole coconut to Indian lamb shank with long-grain rice. On top of these mouthwatering selections, guests can also enjoy poached tiger prawns, Boston lobsters, and Alaskan crab legs at the restaurant’s sustainable seafood corner. Come Christmas Eve, the leafy Oasis Restaurant will host a poolside barbecue buffet dinner, luring meat and seafood lovers alike. The carving station will whip up roasted turkey with chestnut stuffing and grass-fed Australian beef sirloin, while the seafood bar will feature steamed king prawns and fresh oysters. Those wanting to end the night on a sweet note will appreciate the restaurant’s variety of sweet treats, which will include Christmas pudding, stollen, and cookies.
An afternoon tea at 10 SCOTTS is a lavish affair—Manila clams, freshly shucked oysters, and bite-sized Vietnamese rice paper rolls will prove difficult to resist—while a buffet dinner at the elegant space is sure to leave guests wanting more. On Christmas Eve, the communal dining table will overflow with beloved classics, including roasted organic turkey, baked salmon in brioche, artisan cheese, and steamed plum pudding in brandy sauce. Over at Santa’s Shop, guests will be able to customize their own dinner menus, gift boxes, and hampers. And with options that include slow-roasted tom turkey, sushi and sashimi variations, ombré butter-cream rainbow cake, and champagne truffles, it’s no doubt that they’ll be spoiled for choice. Meanwhile, homemade treats such as gingerbread cookies are certain to be a hit with the little ones, as well as adults yearning for a sweet taste of nostalgia.
