New Year’s Eve set menus that won’t leave you in a food coma

December is a great month of festivities but come New Year’s Eve, it’s been a month of overeating and drinking, and you might not be feeling up for yet another massive feast. That doesn’t mean you need to stay at home like a hermit! Here are some New Year’s Eve set menus that are on the lighter side so you can still usher in 2018 in a big way without needing to reach for Gaviscon at the end of the night.


Bayswater Kitchen

Set in Keppel bay with peaceful views of the marina, Bayswater Kitchen is a great alternative if you’re looking to spend time with family and friends without having to deal with the hassle of dealing with traffic and a million other people.

Bayswater Ktichen specialises in seafood. The dishes are kept simple to allow the seafood to take centrestage but the clever use of subtle spices and fresh herbs help to keep the dishes interesting and modern.


But perhaps the most charming thing about this hidden gem is the service. Attentive without ever being intrusive, the service staff strike that elusive balance between being professional and personal.

For NYE, Bayswater Kitchen is offering a six-course meal. Highlights include cured Hokkaido scallop topped with avocado, tomato dressing and caviar, and hand-rolled linguine (something that’s rarely seen in restaurants) with blue crab, red pepper and crispy shallots.

Como Cuisine

Como Cuisine might lean towards clean eating but trust us, there’s nothing punishing about eating healthy here. In fact, if there’s something Como Cuisine does well is packing flavour and textures into their well-composed dishes.

The menu features some of the most popular dishes from the Como hotels around the world so you get a borderless menu with European, Asian and Australian influences.

Which works perfectly well for us. Cos in their NYE omakase dinner menu, we were eyeing the kingfish sashimi with cucumber and ponzu, and fish curry.

From the moment you step into the small dining room that’s filled with natural light, repurposed wooden furniture and little vases of flowers, you feel like you’ve entered someone’s home.


The food here is described as “wildly creative fusion food.” While such a grand statement might turn some off, Morsels is one of the rare cases where the claim is not an overstatement.

At the core of chef Petrina Loh’s food is great ingredients. Her influences are familiar – Japanese, French, Singaporean, Korean … but it’s in the unexpected but successful ways she melds these influences that justifies the claim. How else would you describe a dish of charred octopus, squid ink risotto, salted egg sauce and tobiko? Or lamb ribs with bittergourd pickle, crispy beehoon and green romesco?

It can be easy to be a jaded and cynical diner. But we say give it a shot, and it’ll restore your faith. This New Year’s Eve, Morsels is serving brunch, communal dining style. To see the full menu, click here. But urm, how can you possibly not be intrigued by Galangal Panna Cotta with Gojujang Caramel or Burnt Cabbage with uni miso sabayon and home-cured bresola?
