If the thought of scouring Singapore to source a traditional feast to serve up at home brings you out in a cold sweat, although we’re half way around the world, there are plenty of establishments offering Thanksgiving themed dining. So, instead of making dinner this November 22, make a reservation.
The Fullerton Hotel
Two of the Fullerton Hotel’s restaurants are laying on Thanksgiving dinners. Town Restaurant, with its panoramic views over the Singapore river, will be hosting a Thanksgiving buffet dinner, while The Lighthouse Restaurant and Rooftop Bar is offering a four-course set dinner. Both sittings are between 6:30pm and 10:30pm, but if the latter option appeals to you then be sure to make your reservation when the clock strikes either 8pm or 9pm so you can catch the light show over Marina Bay.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel
Just across the road from its neighbor, The Fullerton Bay Hotel also has two Thanksgiving offerings. For lighter bites, The Landing Point bar will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving themed three-tier English-style afternoon tea with a mini-buffet and bottomless cups of coffee or tea from 3-5:30pm. For the full dining experience, intimate restaurant, La Brasserie, will be serving its four-course set Thanksgiving dinner with dessert buffet from 6:30pm until 10:30pm.
The Four Seasons Hotel
The One Ninety restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel celebrates the holiday with a semi-buffet. Choose one entrée from oven-roasted organic turkey, roasted Atlantic cod or slow-roasted Westholm wagyu striploin, then indulge yourself at their chilled seafood bar, French cheese and charcuterie stations. Reservations can be made between 5:30pm and 10:30pm.
Marriott Café at Tang Plaza will be offering an array of cuisines at its Thanksgiving buffet. Traditional highlights include roast turkey with Chestnut Bread Stuffing, slow-roasted Australian beef prime rib and maple-glazed leg of ham, as well as seafood offerings of oysters, Boston lobsters, crayfish, snow crab legs, prawns, yellow fin tuna and Salmon Sashimi. The buffet is inclusive of free flow of sparkling wine, red and white wine, beer and mocktails.
The American Club
The American Club will be taking the sting out of fussing over the turkey and agonizing over what’s for dessert by hosting a buffet dinner with two sittings at the Galbraith Room from 5-7pm and from 7:30-9pm. The 2nd Floor restaurant is also laying on a set lunch between 11:30am and 2:30pm and a set dinner from 6-10pm.
If casual dining is more your speed, Brewerkz, Riverside Point, is putting on a buffet dinner with two sittings, from 5-8pm then 8-11pm with free flow soda and happy hour prices on their beers. Tuck into seasonal fare, such as roasted turkey breast, oatmeal stout roasted beef, roasted lamb and roasted gammon, accompanied by cauliflower salad, as well as their butternut squash soup and cheese selection.
The Pan Pacific hotel has it all covered this Thanksgiving. In addition to traditional favorites such as Old Bay roasted whole turkey, pineapple glazed gammon ham, Edge will be offering an Asian twist with its apple glazed mirin turkey chirashi as well as its healthy bar, its incredible selection of seafood and regularly featured western and pan-Asian dishes.
If you’d rather save yourself for the weekend, then Edge will be going for round two of Thanksgiving celebrations on Sunday 25 with its brunch, offering an impressive selection of eastern and western cuisine, rounding the occasion off with pumpkin-based sweet treats. The brunch is inclusive of Champagne, red or white wine, premium gin, passion fruit cocktails and fresh juices, although guests can opt out of the alcohol.
