2. Oriole Coffee - 3 course meal for $38

 

Unlike the other sets in this list, the one at Oriole Coffee contains a drink instead of an appetiser as one of its 3 courses. But don’t be too quick to dismiss it as “cheapo” - each of the 3 limited-time yuletide concoctions you can pick are worth $8 a la carte. And since the roastery-bar specialises in their own brews and blends, you know you’re in darn good hands.

Caffeine-lovers, slurp up a satisfying Gingerbread Latte, or, for something a little richer, a Grinch Frappe - a blend of espresso blended with peppermint, topped with a candy cane, whipped cream, and a dollop of Vanilla ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery. If you’re more of a chocolate person, there’s the belly-warming Orange Spice Chocolate.

For fine French food at wallet-friendly prices, Saveur is a top pick in our books. The unpretentious decor parallels their honest-to-goodness offerings which come artfully plated in decent quantities - none of that chichi stuff with itty bitty portions.

It’s a limited-time special, so try it while you still can! Not fond of fowl? There’s also Beef Rossini - a steak wrapped in bacon and served with crouton, foie gras, and beef jus.
