Food has always been an integral part of Christmas in Singapore. It is the time when restaurants and cafes suddenly have buffets galore and those with the feasts are peppered with even more festive specialties. And with 2010 being a very exciting year for the F&B industry, with big name line ups opening its doors to guests, I felt it was fitting to also have this year’s Christmas dinner rejoicing in both the season and my Mum’s 50th birthday at RISE, Marina Bay Sands.
My previous visit brought me to The Line at The Shangri-la Hotel, and while Melt – The World Cafe might have been my next to visit on the list, the dinner at RISE this Christmas is especially chosen because of the majestic ambience of dining under the stars yet within the soothing comforts of the hotel as experienced before.

The line up at the festive buffet table features traditional seasonal favourites such as Foie Gras, Black Pudding and Venison, Honey Baked Ham, yields of Chestnuts and Turkey Stuffing, and an even more extravagant array of Cheeses, all on top of the fresh select choice of seafood, Western and Asian dishes, a Japanese sashimi, sushi and cocktail section, Salad range and of course the desserts.
