This year, switch things up by going for familiar fare with a fun twist. Keep reading to discover the best, most unexpected dishes to cater this Christmas.


Vietnamese Christmas Catering Roast Chicken1. Vietnamese roasted whole chicken

Forget dry, overcooked roast turkey and go for the Christmas roasted chicken from Wrap & Roll. The contemporary Vietnamese restaurant is serving up a seriously juicy whole chicken for the festive season, roasted and dished out on a carving board for that rustic, holiday feel.








2. Korean turkey bibimbap

Want turkey for your Christmas party but don't want the trouble of having to carve up a huge roasted bird on the table? Try Dosirak’s turkey bibimbap. Moist sous vide turkey slices are served with Korean pesto — a blend of spinach, pine nuts and fragrant sesame oil, finished with smoke — in Dosirak’s signature bibimbap tubs.







3. Penang turkey pineapple fried rice

Combine a Christmas favourite with classic Asian home-cooked fare and you’ll get Penang Culture’s turkey pineapple fried rice. This homely dish will please the palates of guests both young and old and is a great option for those who aren’t meat lovers but still want a taste of Christmas turkey.


4. Italian roasted prime Angus ribeye

Hosting a group of carnivores? Get Kucina Italian’s Arrostita di Manzo, roasted prime Angus ribeye with pepper sauce. This hearty, meaty, authentic Italian roast made by Kucina’s Italian chef will fill the stomachs and hearts of your guests.


5. Thai coconut ice cream

There’s no better holiday dinner party dessert than one that brings back memories of an actual holiday — a vacation in Bangkok, to be exact.

While not the most obvious food choice for a typical Christmas party, Nara Thai’s I-thim Nara or coconut ice cream will be a colourful and fun addition to any festive spread. Served with a selection of crunchy and chewy condiments, it’s will also be great fun for both kids and adults to build their own coconut ice cream sundae.
