Christmas is one of the biggest events of the year and we know how much of a headache it can be to organise a get-together, be it a private dinner with your loved ones or corporate parties involving hundreds of guests.
When it comes to Christmas parties, one of the major components when it comes to planning is food—and it can make or break your party! Having to please everyone’s taste buds is not an easy task but yes, we are telling you that it is possible to have a fuss-free Christmas party without going through much hassle.
For Christmas this year, Orange Clove Catering is collaborating with Celebrity Chef Eric Low who is leading the festive theme buffet ‘A Christmas Full of Life’, with six exclusive creations that are bound to impress your guests. Who says that catered food has to be boring? We beg to differ!
The Midtown over at Upper Serangoon Road is fast-becoming another foodie haven with the exponential setting up of new eateries within its premises—a godsend for nearby residents and office workers.
Otoko is one of the newest additions to this Hougang enclave. This humble Japanese eatery first started out as a stall in a coffee shop at Sultan Plaza offering quality and comforting Japanese Donburi at affordable prices.
The menu at their new branch at The Midtown features a wider spread of items, like tendon as well as a mix-and-match menu for their Japanese curry rice in which diners can choose to stack on more of their preferred items. Otoko may not rank as high up as the greats but considering the affordability and the quality of the food they serve, this makes it an ideal spot to get your fix.

The bakery is so successful among their loyal customers that it currently has four stores in Taiwan and six outlets in Malaysia.
Great news for all west siders! Original Cake will be opening its first outlet in Westgate. This is the second Castella cake shop located in the west of Singapore, after the launch of Ah Mah Homemade Cake in Bukit Panjang Plaza. READ ON
Opus Bar & Grill is an intimate and modern grill restaurant which also happens to serve some of the best steaks in Singapore.

If you reside in the buzzing Jakarta, you may stay at home during the weekends and wait for travelling street food carts to come by so that you can order lunch.
The Mie Bakso sellers approach the neighbourhoods with a stick and a wooden hollow shell to produce a string of hard knocks to create an echo satisfactory to cut through the chattering, residential neighbourhood.
