As Christmas approaches, many are looking forward to the time of rest from this grim year. With the festive season back again, there is no better time to cast your diet and health plans aside for the next couple of weeks. Christmas dishes may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there are a few restaurants in Dhaka that are made for customers to go all out. If you’re looking to dine with friends and family during this Christmas season, here are a few good spots here in Dhaka.
Elements at Intercontinental
Fine dining isn’t an everyday option for most of us, but when we choose to let loose, Elements sets the standard. The first most noticeable attraction of the restaurant is its spacious and relaxing ambiance that can house up to 144 guests. The venue is phenomenally lit and offers a massive buffet that offers both Bangladeshi and intercontinental delicacies – prepared by top chefs at their Live Cooking stations right in front of you. If buffets aren’t your style, Elements also offers an extensive alacarte menu. A neat bonus is that there is a private dining room you could reserve if you are intending to bring sizable company.
Favola at Le Meridien
Located at Le Meridien, Favola is one of the best Italian restaurants around if you’re feeling peckish for western cuisines. The restaurant doesn’t rely on any gimmicks to stand out, but instead presents authentic Italian cuisines made personally by Italian chefs to demonstrate the most premium of quality. Aside from excellent service, the restaurant has much to offer for those with dietary restrictions (vegetarian, Halal, Gluten Free, etc) If you’re looking to stick with comfortable classics, but made at the highest level, Favola will not disappoint.
Seasonal Tastes at Westin
If you’re looking to dine internationally this Christmas, Seasonal Taste at Westin more than lives up to its name. Whether you’re looking for kababs or sushi, the restaurant’s buffet has everything you’d think of craving for and then some. The restaurant also prides itself for having the only Molteni station in the country! To top it all off, Seasonal Tastes has the diet conscious in mind – offering services from SuperFoodRx and The Juicery to make dieting as enjoyable for the disciplined. The restuarant takes reservations up to 30 pax for their private dining rooms; a well-rounded destination for large groups of guests who have wildly different tastes.
Best Food to Cater for a Bengali Wedding
With all the grandeur on this list so far, sometimes the better approach is to keep things small with you and a couple of loved ones – which is where Bittersweet Cafe comes in as a solid recommendation. The ambiance is cozy and the cafe does a great job blending fine coffee with delectable bites that aren’t too hearty. The cafe keeps things safe by offering classic staples such as fried rice, sandwiches and pies. If you’re leaning towards a quieter Christmas, this cafe is a must!
