Celebrate the magic of Christmas at Hilton Orchard Singapore



Christmas has dawned upon Hilton Orchard Singapore, and with it, a magnificent festive spread from its esteemed F&B establishments - Estate, Ginger.Lily and Osteria Mozza graced the hotel with an air of seasonal enchantment.


Fresh Seafood Platter

Embarking on the festive celebration, we commenced with the Fresh Seafood Platter. A sumptuous assembly featuring Maine Lobster, Irish Oysters, Alaskan King Crab, and Scallops – a true indulgence for seafood aficionados, capturing the essence of the ocean in a single feast.

Pan-Seared Foie Gras

Next, we had the Pan-Seared Foie Gras. An ode to decadence, the foie gras was artfully paired with onion and chestnut puree, dragees alsace crust, and a tantalising balsamic glaze. This symphony of flavours elevated the delicate foie gras to a sublime experience.

Christmas Cravings

No festive celebration is complete without Christmas Cravings. A culinary voyage through the Classic Beef Wellington, Whole Roasted Turkey with bread stuffing, and the Honey Glazed Bone-in Ham, offering a trifecta of festive delights that beckon the spirit of Christmas to the table.

Smoked Turkey and Candied Bacon Pizza

Osteria Mozza contributed to the festive revelry by creating the Smoked Turkey and Candied Bacon Pizza. Adorned with squash, cranberries, and fried sage, this festive pizza danced on the palate, marrying unique holiday flavours with the joy of traditional pizza craftsmanship.

Grilled Sandwich

Adding a touch of warmth to the festive menu is the Grilled Sandwich, a treasure trove of flavours with layers of turkey prosciutto, Swiss cheese, pepperoncini, and pickles. The peppery zest of the pepperoncini harmoniously blended with the tangy pickles for a delightful finish.

Raclette Cheese

A personal favourite emerged as Raclette Cheese, beckoning to be savoured with bread, ham, and pickles. The rich, melted goodness of the raclette infused each bite with a delightful blend of textures and flavours.



Not to be overlooked are the Executive Pastry Chef's creations, offering visual delights and an exquisite array of log cakes with unique flavours distinct from the classic renditions. The festive sweet delights are tantalising for those with a penchant for confectionary delights.



In conclusion, Hilton Orchard Singapore has woven a tapestry of festive delights that cater to the eyes and promise a culinary journey rich in flavours and creativity. This Christmas, the hotel stands as a beacon of gastronomic joy, inviting patrons to celebrate flavours that encapsulate the season's magic.

Multi-layers of flavours work harmoniously together.

Shanghai-style Pan-fried Turkey Buns

Adding an Asian flair, the Shanghai-style Pan-fried Turkey Buns ($42 nett for 10 pieces) bring a unique twist. These buns are stuffed with well-seasoned minced turkey filling and a robust broth encased in a soft, pillowy skin with a crispy pan-fried base.

Snowy Splendour Log Cake
