It should go without saying that Christmas is the perfect time for feasting with loved ones. The halls are decked with boughs of holly and it’s that time of the year when endless plates of festive food await.

Not everyone fancies cooking up a storm (and cleaning up afterwards), which is why we’ve gathered some of the best festive menus for you to savour from various restaurants this season. We’re talking meat platters, mouth-watering sides, and Instagram-worthy desserts—all of which can be found in Changi Airport and Jewel Changi Airport. 

From cosy and chic restaurants to family-friendly eateries, here’s how you can keep the spirit of Christmas flying high this holiday in Changi.

Delicious festive menus for a joyous, merry time

1. Swensen's

For generations (since 1979!), Swensen’s has been synonymous with memorable celebrations. Whether it’s birthdays or anniversaries, a trip to Swensen's is a delectable tradition with friends, family or loved ones. It’s no different this season; Christmas calls for an indulgent feast. Why not ring in the festivities with some whimsical nostalgia at the Swensen’s outlet in Changi Airport? 

The previous (and original) outlet first opened in Terminal 1, and while it holds a special place in our hearts, the current outlet at Terminal 3 has equally been a hit since its opening in 2020. Clearly, Swensen’s has stood the test of time.

Share a comforting and delicious meal with your loved ones during the festive season. From the Potatoes Au Gratin (S$31.90), a gratifying dish combining tender potatoes with a harmonious blend of mixed cheeses, to the Salmon Wellington (S$65.00), a slab of succulent salmon and tender spinach wrapped up in a layer of pastry, there is something to satisfy everyone’s tastebuds. If you’re looking for a more traditional western Christmas meal, opt for the Herb Roast Chicken (S$55.00) or the Herb Roast Brazil Turkey (S$168.00) if you’re hosting a larger party.

End the feast with sweet desserts like the Amber Ember (S$66.00), a log cake with a luscious core of Crème Brulee ice cream, encased in a layer of torched marshmallow. If you are more a fan of chocolate, give the Merry Giftmas (S$66.00) a try. It is made of Swensen’s beloved Sticky Chewy Chocolate ice cream, topped off with a decadent chocolate ganache crumble base.(

If you prefer the ‘surf’ in a ‘surf and turf’, they also have a Christmas Seafood Platter featuring white wine clams, grilled Argentinian red prawn, pan-seared salmon, grilled squid and Mediterranean cous cous. Don’t forget to end off your meal with their homemade coconut bread pudding, topped with creamy coconut ice cream. It is the best way to end off your feast!
