Thinking of giving mum a treat this Mother’s Day 2022?
Held on 8 May 2022, Mother’s Day ought to be an extravagant affair. After all, your leading lady has worked hard and sacrificed so much your whole life, and while she should be celebrated everyday, this special occasion is the perfect excuse to completely indulge her.
Most of the superwomen in our lives tend to lean towards being practical, which means they like to say you don’t have to get them a nice gift for the occasion. While a bouquet of flowers and a little special something wouldn’t hurt (jewellery is always a good idea!), we think the best way to show your love is through a nice meal. After all, you get to celebrate them and spend some much-needed quality time with her too.
To help you along, we’ve rounded up some the best menus on the island that are made just for Mother’s Day 2022. If your mum is pretty low-key on celebrations, don’t fret. We’ve also included dessert options that you can order in for a quiet, intimate session at home.

There’s no way better to say “I love you” to a seafood-loving mum than with this Burger & Lobster menu for Mother’s Day 2022. The Seafood Medley Cartoccio is a sharing feast packed with a generous serving of signature wild live Canadian lobster, freshly sourced clams, king prawns and green mussels bathed in an aromatic white wine, fennel and cherry tomato broth — complete with the restaurant’s signature toasted brioche, of course. To make it a meal she won’t forget, top off the indulgent treat with the Thank You, MAMA! cocktail, a concoction of Botanist Gin, apricot, citrus, pineapple, blueberry, and bubbles.
For mums who enjoy Chinese cuisine, 5 on 25 is a great option to consider.

Meadesmoore, formerly known as Fat Belly Social Steakhouse, has a vision up their sleeves, and that’s to treat mum to an experience that harkens the grand steakhouses of the early 1900s. The Babette’s Blinis, for instance, comes in a silver platter of buckwheat pancakes, Amur caviar by Caviar Colony and finely chopped chives and shallots, grated egg white and egg yolk, and crème fraîche. After a serving of Hand-Dived Scallops, dig into a plate of Beouf a la Ficele or the Truffle & Mushroom Stuffed Coquelet, before finishing up with the Red Velvet Eton Mess.
Meadesmoore’s Mother’s Day menu will be available from 5 – 7 May 2022.
Chef Marvas ties inspiration from his own mother with a six-course menu fit for a queen over at Path.

The palm-sized Okinawa Brown Sugar Madeleine and the Baijiu-laced French Canele will round up your night beautifully, making it the perfect sweet end to the meal.
The Mother’s Day menu at Path is available from 2 – 7 May 2022 for dinner only.

If mum prefers a laidback celebration, head to Thirty Six for its three-course meal. Kick off the meal with the Home Cured Salmon served with corn salad, yuzu puree and dressing, and charred tomatoes or the Tuna Tartare with warm, crust sourdough toast.
Hearty mains include A Chilean Seabass, with a housemade caper sauce, charred broccolini and olives or the Grass-fed New Zealand Ribeye (230g), grilled over charcoal and served with potato puree, a burnt butter emulsion smoked asparagus. Steering clear of meat and seafood? The Mushroom Risotto coms with fresh burrata, parmesan cheese and smoked asparagus. Conclude with desserts like the 36 Beer Crème Brulee that includes a custard infused with Lion Brewery Co’s Straits Pale, and kick back with a beer or two.
Treat your mum to a delectable meal over panoramic views at Zafferano this Mother’s Day. The Mother’s Day Brunch at Italian restaurant Zafferano will offer a celebration to remember. A few of the dishes are tributes to the women in the chef’s life. The appetiser of the octopus salad, served with potatoes and black olives, is one of the favourite dishes of his mother and wife.
The primi pasta dish of the Grandmother Lasagna is his iteration of his grandmother’s own classic. Based on her belief that a good lasagna must be at least 10cm tall, his take is 20 layers of house-made pasta sheets filled with wagyu beef ragu.
For mains, three choices are available, including a black cod with scampi cacciucco and confit tomatoes, that is a contemporary spin on the Tuscan stew; the first dish Chef had cooked for his mother-in-law. The whole meal can be accompanied with unlimited champagne, sparkling and house wines.
Available on 7 May
