Mother’s Day Dinner Singapore 2013

Mother's Day Guide

Mother’s Day is just next Sunday, and if you are thinking of where to bring your family to celebrate the occasion, here is a guide on Mother’s Day Dinner 2013.


Aburiya Yakiniku

When it comes to yakiniku, few restaurants do it better than Aburiya at Robertson Quay. This is a great place where family and friends come together for premium meat and delicious drinks. The cheapest set menu (for 2-3pax) starts from $75.

Aoki Restaurant


If you have had Aoki’s Chirashi ($35) before, I am sure you will agree with me that it is happiness in a bowl. This is a nice place to bring your family to celebrate Mother’s Day in advance, especially if you are looking for somewhere to go for lunch on a weekday. Their set lunches ($35-50) are excellent value, and you can enjoy top quality Japanese food in a classy environment.

La Brezza Prosecco Brunch

La Brezza

Regulars to St Regis Singapore will be familiar with their signature restaurants like Yan Ting and Brasserie Les Saveurs, but not many people have been to La Brezza, a poolside restaurant that serves fine trattoria-style Italian cuisine.

On weekends, they have a Prosecco brunch ($98++/pax with prosecco, $68++/pax for non-alcohol) that features an enticing spread of antipasti and cheese. That is not all. The buffet also includes handmade pastas and main courses like striploins, seabass and prawns – grilled ala minute – with free flow of prosecco. It is definitely a treat for a special occasion like Mother’s Day.

Picotin Express serves simple, delicious and honest comfort food that you can eat on a regular basis. It is a place that I can go back again and again, and I think your mom will like it too.

Poulet Restaurant


French restaurants are aplenty in Singapore, it is not difficult to find good French food here. But if you are on a hunt for a pocket-friendly option, the options become considerately limited. Poulet at the new Bugis+, a casual French restaurant by the Thai Express group, might just be the place to bring your mom for a good and affordable meal.

Sky on 57

Sky on 57

Sky on 57 by Chef Justin Quek has one of the best views of Singapore’s skyline, and if you are looking for a restaurant to impress your girlfriend’s mom, make a call to reserve a table here.

The business luncheon menu ($50 for 3 course, or $60 for 4 course) is actually very reasonable. It offers some of Justin Quek’s signature dishes like Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao, Beef Broth, Singapore Sakura Chicken RIce, and Kaya Macarons. For the excellent view and good food, this is one of the best set lunches you can get in town. Note: There is a minimum spend of $50/pax during lunch, and $100/pax during dinner.

For an all-you-can-eat-stuff-your-face international buffet, go to Todai. The seafood and sushi buffet restaurant offers a huge variety of food ranging from sushi, to BBQ meat, to Korean food and desserts. What makes customers go back again and again, however, is the Alaskan crab. Free-flow giant crab legs? I am sold. On Mother’s Day 2013, both lunch and dinner buffets are priced at $68++/pax.
