If you’re spending the holidays in the city this year, it’s good to plan your agenda beforehand so that all you have to do is relax and you don’t have to think about what to prepare because someone else will do that for you. If you’re planning on leaving your homes for the night, bring your loved ones because here are some of the things you could do on Christmas eve!
Spending Holidays at Pig & Palm
Loving the City Vibes? You can celebrate the holidays with flexible spaces and a sumptuous holiday menu right in the heart of the city at Pig & Palm. If you’re lucky, you might meet the Michelin-starred chef, Jason Atherton. For starters, you can choose from Prawn Cocktail with dill dressing, sun dried tomato and sourdough crisps or Chicken Liver Parfait. Christmas Eve dinner would not be complete without their main entrées which includes familiar favorites on the menu, but with the season’s twist such as a Roasted Turkey Breast and Pork Cutlet with caramelized apple, sage crumble and picked carrots. Finish your Holiday dinner with a Sticky Toffee with Christmas pudding ice cream.
