Can you believe Christmas and New Year are almost here? It's the season for parties, reunions, and of course—the time to eat LOTS of food. Speaking of which, you might be planning your holiday party menu or thinking of what to bring for your potluck dinner. Don't worry because we gotchu! Ahead, check out these delicious picks.
Kumori Pistachio Dream Cake
The thick layers of pistachio mousse sandwiched between moist chocolate cake will make you want to have this cake all for yourself. It's not too sweet so we're sure it will be a crowd-pleaser, too. We suggest you pair this with a holiday-themed drink—like hot chocolate or eggnog—to get the full festive foodie experience.

Isabel's Salad Platter
For the holiday season, Isabel's came out with a Salad Platter that will balance out all the rich dishes you'll be consuming this season. But this doesn't mean that the food will remind you to go on a diet: It has THICK slices of Christmas ham and walnuts, the dressing is super delicious, and the greens are fresh and crisp. Even non-veggie eaters would love this! Also, please don't sleep on their Queso de Bola offerings: The spread and pulvoron are addictive.

Poison Doughnuts Bicho-Bicho
We swear the crowd will go crazy about these bicho-bicho doughnuts! The dough is soft and chewy, plus the fillings are one-of-a-kind.
