If you’re planning to spend the holidays on the red dot this year, you don’t need to dedicate your whole time to cooking in the kitchen. Along with options for dining-in at restaurants, many of our favourite eateries are offering a Christmas dinner delivery and takeaway service in Singapore to take the stress out of food shopping and to put all the fun into eating. From the full-meaty-works to traditional side dishes and Santa-approved sweet desserts, let the good times come to you. After all, it’s been a heck of a year. Cheers to spending the season near your sofa!
