Mum will be spoilt for choice

Mum will be spoilt for choice

Mothers come in all shapes, temperaments and quirks, so a Mother’s Day meal cannot be a one-size-fits-all situation.

Find out what she likes and feed her accordingly next month.

Here are our suggestions:

CAKE

What about starting off with a gorgeous cake?

Bakerzin’s Pure Love cake ($55.65) is a delicious choice. It boasts a dramatic bright pink dragonfruit sponge cake, and the white cream cheese complements it perfectly.

Order at www.bakerzin.com for self pick-up or delivery.

CHINESE CUISINE

If impressing your mother (or mother-in-law) is a must, Man Fu Yuan (InterContinental Singapore, tel: 6825-1008) will do nicely.

On May 10, it’s serving an eight-course meal with dishes such as braised fresh crab roe with bird’s nest soup (above) and stewed prime ribs from $108 per diner (minimum four to dine).

Bonus: A carnation will be presented to every mother and each table will receive a family photo.

Peach Garden is holding its Mother’s Day dinner in the Flower Field Hall at Gardens by the Bay on May 10.

It is priced at $88 per person (minimum four diners) and has signature dishes such as glutinous rice in roasted suckling pig (above) and braised ee-fu noodle with baby lobster segment.

HIGH TEA

TWG Tea’s Mother’s Day Brunch is as refined as you would imagine.

It starts with a white wine cocktail infused with Pink Flamingo Tea and the highlight is the pan-seared Hokkaido king crab legs.

It will be available from May 8 to May 10 at $75. Call 6735-1837 (Ion Orchard) or 6565-1837 (The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands) to book a table.

BUFFET

UNA’S Mother’s Day Brunch (from $108) is made up of appetisers, mains and desserts, served from 11am to 3pm.

It will be a delicious European feast with melon charentais and jamon, figs with ricotta cheese, and beef carving with chimichurri.

It’s a great and cheap way to bond.

SEAFOOD

The halal-certified AquaMarine (Marina Mandarin Singapore, tel: 6845-1111) is known for its seafood buffet spread but it’s outdoing itself with its Mother’s Day spread. Expect the likes of lobster popiah (above) and baked jumbo prawns.

Mothers will get a cake, and the whole family can take part in a lucky draw.
