The woman who claims she never needs or wants anything, worrying about you regardless of your age and unconsciously loves without expecting anything in return. Have you planned anything for your mum on this Mother’s Day? Time flies, this year’s Mother’s Day falls on 13 May 2018, Sunday. Run out of ideas? We’re here to help you do better, though, with a list of Mother’s Day dinner where we’ve dined recently.
The list below is not in chronological order.
Royale Restaurant at Mercure Bugis Hotel
Over 40 Chef’s speciality dishes available at the buffet and a cosy 45 minutes cake decorating workshop with mum. A picture is worth a thousand words, but creating memories are priceless. The cake decorating workshop is suitable for all even for those that have no idea about baking. Pastry Chef Man is very patient and encouraging. Celebrate this special day in the joys of decorating a cake and creating beautiful memories with your mum together.
Mother’s day buffet starts with Seafood on Ice including Alaskan snow crab legs, live oysters, poached prawns, Manila clams and more! The Alaskan snow crab legs were fresh! I’m able to pull out a solid piece of sweet, juicy, succulent meat on my media visit. One piece is definitely not enough.
Double-boiled ginseng chicken soup with wolfberries and red date. This is a very nourishing soup, especially for mother. The chicken soup has a hint of ginseng flavour and elegantly light in texture.
My favourite main go to Braised Beef Cheek with Madeira Wine. I had it once it’s served. The beef cheek was meltingly tender and the taste was richer with Madeira wine. Mashed potatoes with the sauce are tasty and I can’t help cleaning all the sauce off the plate!
Who can resist mentaiko sauce? The slipper lobster was topped with a voluptuous blanket of mentaiko sauce then oven baked. A lovely combo that marries savoury mentaiko and sweet lobster.
I’ve also tried Oven-Baked Salt Crushed Whole Seabass Fillet. The presentation is on point! Whole seabass fillet was carefully prepared and buried in the comfort of salt crust. It was fun to watch the salt crust being cracked open, exposing the cooked fish. The seabass was dry in texture and had a fishy taste which I don’t enjoy it personally.
An assortment of delectable dessert and other sweet treats including Durian Creme Brulee, Bird Nest Egg Tart, Candied Almond Tart, Strawberry Short Cake and Tiramisu Mousse
Honestly, cake decorating is not my speciality and I have zero confidence. Many thanks to Pastry Chef Man and my foodie sis Cecil for their encouragement and tips in making this possible for me! The cake tasted even better with our fruits of success.
Cake decorating sessions are prioritized based on first come first serve basis. Complimentary limited to 3 pax per family.
