Where to eat on Christmas and New Year’s Eve: Feast Village Starhill Gallery
'tis the most wonderful time of the year
Feast Village Starhill Gallery is one destination with options aplenty and that stands truer this festive season. Round up your loved ones, family and friends, to indulge in a hearty, joyous spread of gourmet specialties and favourite holiday foods. Three of our favourite spots to hit include Shook!, Fisherman's Cove and Sentidos Gastrobar, each of them offering a culinary experience like no other.
For a true festive feast, opt for Shook!'s Christmas Eve Golden Starry Night Dinner Buffet with over 50 varieties of signature dishes such as Prime Ribs with Yorkshire Pudding, Freshly Shucked Oysters, Grilled Seafood and Steak, Minestrone Soup, Fresh Sushi and Sashimi, Dim Sum, Pizza, Lasagna, Christmas Stollen and an assortment of festive Pastries, Cookies and Desserts. But really, the spotlight should be on both the Roast Turkey and Live Lobster Risotto. Perfectly roasted with tender meat, you'll be wanting seconds of the turkey while the tempting presentation of the lobster risotto certainly won't disappoint in taste either.

If you're tired of catching the countdown fireworks, Shook! is throwing a little something called New Year's Eve Big Balloon Drop, which includes a Celebratory Dinner Buffet and Toast.

Not so much of a turkey or roast person? Seafood lovers will easily be lured to Fisherman's Cove for their indulgent four-course Christmas Eve Oyster and Alaskan King Crab Set Dinner. Start off with Gratin Pacific Rock Oysters and Alaskan King Crab before simmering down to a rich, heartwarming Seafood Soup enriched with flavours from grass prawns, blue mussels, Venus clams and squid. The main event is a Braised Wagyu Cheek with Truffle Risotto - fragrant and tender with a pleasant texture. The dessert, Ginger and Lime Crème Brûlée, is a surprising, tangy twist with a strong hint of ginger that grows on you with each spoonful.
