It’s been quite a year for mothers worldwide, whether they’re careerwomen or homemakers. After all, they’ve spent just over a year working from home – or dealing with those now spending far more time at home. What better way to show appreciation to your one and only mother with the best Singapore’s dining scene has to offer. Here’s our pick of 2021’s most exciting Mother’s Day menus.
Chef Keisuke Uno delivers a Mother’s Day menu, honed after two decades in kitchens around the world, that’s comforting and exquisite in equal measure. There’s Mikuni’s signature Kyushu onsen egg on a bed of lobster and abalone salad; a selection of tempura including kinmedai, shiitake mushrooms and shishito peppers; and a warm, soothing traditional Japanese hot pot, bolstered by king crab. Everything is rounded off by a green tea opera cake, kuzumochi ice and a macaron, and an optional – if encouraged – glass of Tattinger Brut or Rose.
Available for lunch, May 7 to 9.

For mothers with carnivorous sensibilities, there’s always Bedrock Bar & Grill. The award-winning steakhouse, apart from dishing out excellent nosh, promotes the conviviality of a good meal with their usual selection of massive steaks. For Mother’s Day though, look forward to slightly more individual indulgences, like Kuhlbarra barramundi, poached and served alongside oyster stew in a luxuriant veloute, crowned by avruga caviar and white rice puffs; applewood-grilled Australian Wagyu rib cap with a refreshing lemon herb sauce, sauteed haricot verts and oven-dried cherry tomatoes; and to end off, an exquisite strawberry tart.
Available for lunch, May 1 to 9

Dim sum and cocktails – what’s not to like? Executive Chinese chef Mike Tan presents bona fide Cantonese fare with free-flowing cocktails and hearty dim sum to celebrate Mother’s Day. The central six-course menu for dinner isn’t anything to sniff at either: there’s steamed egg fortified with uni and Alaskan king crab; braised Iberico pork alongside Japanese udon; and a centrepiece of a steamed Chilean seabass, with housemade ‘mama’ sauce in honour of the special day.
Available for brunch and dinner, May 8 and 9.

Sometimes, celebrating the occasion can be as simple as a seafood feast. To that end, head to consummate mod-Asian joint One-Ninety. It’s a semi-buffet format, which means you get a pick of an entree and a slew of complementary eats, including the likes of Maine lobster, avruga caviar and king crab. Apart from seafood, they’ve also got four ‘live’ stations to supplement your Mother’s Day Meal – think salt-baked whole garoupa with a zesty tomato salsa and yuzu soy; slow-roasted angus rib-eye; applewood-smoked Peking duck and roasted pork shoulder. There’s a ravishing selection of sweets crafted by Executive pastry chef Audrey Yee to end. Naturally, there’s also the option of unlimited reds, whites and Tattinger Brut Reserve.
Available for lunch, May 9.
