‘Tis The Season For A Holiday Feast: 7 Yummy Food Finds To Make Your Tummy Extra Jolly


Aside from gift-giving, the top highlight of any Christmas gathering is the flavorful and mouthwatering food that fills our tables. To prove our unparalleled love for holiday feasts, we even have the traditional Noche Buena—a special Christmas Eve celebration solely dedicated to enjoying good food with our loved ones. 

If you’re looking for festive treats to serve on Noche Buena or any holiday party, check out these seven Christmas food options that are perfect for sharing and spreading the yuletide cheer!

Holiday table must-have

Gather your family for a filling Christmas feast with the Mesa Crispy Pork Belly Holiday Bundle, a house specialty that features deliciously marinated, sous vide, and deep-fried belly served with fermented rice and dipping sauce. Each order of this bundle includes side dishes like cucumber sticks, wansoy, leeks, and fresh romaine lettuce or malunggay crepe to add flavor and texture to your meal. 

To guarantee enough servings for your loved ones, you can choose between half slab (P750), full slab (P1,495), and family slab (P2,950) when ordering the Mesa Crispy Pork Belly Holiday Bundle at Mesa in SM malls.

For a happy ham-liday

Christmas feasts aren’t complete without ham—and to make the celebration even merrier, why not savor a whole platter of it with your fam? Get your dose of holiday ham from Bigby’s jam-packed Ham Platter, which includes a succulent selection of prune-infused ham, savory pinwheels, bruschetta, pesto canapé, and assorted fruits and vegetables. 

Get the Ham Platter for only P499 when you dine in at Bigby’s in SM City Cagayan De Oro.

A sprinkle of sweetness

To sweeten up your yuletide celebration, don’t forget to include a dreamy dessert like Cafe Mary Grace’s Christmas Brownies on your holiday spread. Shaped like a Christmas tree for an extra holiday feeling, these fudgy chocolate brownies are decked in festive candy sprinkles and served with a popsicle stick to complete the look—making it a sure favorite among your party guests, especially kids and those with a sweet tooth!

The cutest Christmas cake

Cakes are a must for any celebration, especially a very festive and memorable one like Christmas. If you’re looking for the perfect confectionery to suit the season’s cheerful mood, we recommend Goldilocks’ Merry Cherry Choco Christmas cake. It has three layers of moist chocolate cake with a medley of cherry and whipped cream filling, topped with luscious icing and sprinkles in festive Christmas colors. From its looks to its flavor, this dessert truly suits the Christmas atmosphere—but hurry, because it’s available for a limited time only!
