When you need to please everyone: Han’s (#01-51/52/53)
For almost four decades, this household brand appeals to everyone, from your family clan to your girl squad.

When you are craving Japanese: Teppei Syokudo (#B1-50)
Take the alternative route and enjoy a delicious Japanese meal at the newly-opened Teppei Syokudo–the casual dining arm of Teppei Omakase–for Christmas instead. Enjoy a delightful of bowl of Kaisendon: a generous serving of cubed sashimi toppings like salmon, swordfish, tuna, scallop, whelk and ikura, tossed in a scrummy housemade sauce and served together with a bowl of fluffy Japanese sushi rice. For something heartier, try their Pork Katsu Curry. Made with a variety of spices and special sauce, the curry follows a uniquely developed recipe that’s tweaked from the traditional Japanese curry.
When you have to refuel: Wrap & Roll (#B1-26/27)
This restaurant chain from Vietnam delivers authentic Vietnamese grub handmade the traditional way. Warm your bellies this chilly December with Wrap & Roll’s Vietnamese Beef Hotpot featuring thin slices of sirloin beef dipped in a tantalising Vietnamese vinegar broth, which you can later roll together in rice paper with an assortment of vegetables. Order their sinfully good Crispy Prawn Pancakes on the side. Blended into a paste are fresh prawns and pork that are then steamed, wrapped in rice crepe skin and pan-fried to crisp perfection.
When you’re done with work: MOA Tiki New Zealand Bar & Grill (#01-70/71)
As the name suggests, MOA Tiki New Zealand Bar & Grill carries a wide range of MOA craft beers as well as wines from Marlborough, Hawkes Bay and the Central Otago region. Highly recommended for beer enthusiasts is their MOA beer flight that lets you sample four out of the nine beers on tap. The food menu is just as extensive with over 50 mouth-watering dishes. Guzzle down a bottle of crisp MOA Methode pilsner with fork tender BBQ pork ribs; the citrusy aroma and spicy undertone of the beer elevate the taste of the lightly spiced ribs. The Sirloin Cube, which is presented over sauteed mushrooms in cream and wine, makes for a great side to share with friends over a bottle of Pinot Noir. Swing by during 7.30-10.30pm from Tuesday to Sunday and take delight in MOA’s diversely curated live performances covering rock songs dating back to the 60s, oldies, as well as Top 40s.
