For a worry-free Christmas holiday without having to think of which specific dishes to cook or coming up with a long list of items to order, you can also consider ordering pre-packaged festive bundles and set meals instead. You can have them delivered to your home or you can opt to self-collect if you wish. Many of the sets here run the whole range of a good festive meal – from starters to hearty mains and even desserts and drinks.
Without further ado, here are some of my recommendations (not arranged in any particular order):

For a local flair to your Christmas celebrations, Baba Chews brings some well-known local staples and incorporates them as ingredients in classic festive dishes. Their Kopi-C Spareribs (S$69.55) is a yearly bestseller while their Chicken Rendang Lasagna (S$83.50) is delightfully creamy and is a must for cheese lovers. I also particularly enjoyed their Sous Vide King Salmon with Thai Sriracha Cream Sauce (S$104.90). The fish was tender and extremely flavorful – one of the best festive dishes I’ve tried this year.
