Treat mum to gourmet meals and cakes at home this Mother's Day
Celebrate Mother's Day with gourmet meals and cakes
Just because we are in the middle of a circuit breaker does not mean that Mother's Day should be ignored.
Paying tribute to mum could lift your spirits - and will certainly elevate hers. Here are some treat ideas for mum on her special day on May 10.
It is nearly impossible to get a table at Michelin three-star restaurant Odette, but now your mother can enjoy the experience at home.
Its delivery menu consists of iconic and seasonal plates, such as Pithiviers Grande Cuisine ($198 for two) and the Bresse Poularde au vin Jaune ($128, for two). It will be a feast worthy of the most important woman of the day. Visit odette.oddle.me/en_SG/ to place your order.
THE BLUE GINGER
Bib Gourmand-listed The Blue Ginger also delivers, so you can send your mother a traditional Peranakan meal on May 10.
The restaurant has four set menus and each menu includes one of two exclusive "off-menu" desserts of pulut hitam and bubur cha cha.
Prices start at $150 for four, and dishes include Ayam Panggang, Babi Pong Tay and Ikan Masak Assam Gulai.
For those who do not want to head out to buy flowers, you can add that to your meal at $50 a bouquet.
To order, call 6235-7042. An advance order of 48 hours is required for flowers.
Can't take mum on a trip to Thailand? Have Thai food instead.
Blue Jasmine's eight-course Mother's Day set is at a wallet-friendly $50 (good for four). Dishes include the popular Cha-Om Fried Egg, Basil Chicken Kaprao and Spicy Lemongrass Fish Fillet.
The set is available on May 9 and 10, and you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 6824-8851 to place an order.
Not only does SPRMRKT provide the ingredients, it also provides the tools if you need them.
Its DIY kit (from $165 with cookware and $98 without) just requires you to combine the ingredients and cook it.
It also includes a kimchi dip with house-made flaxseed crackers, bread rolls, housemade chicken fingers and spaghetti pomodoro.
For the protein, you get a choice of seafood, sea bream or chicken.
