Mother’s Day restaurants for you to show mum your love
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and what’s a better way to show your mum some appreciation than by treating her to a delicious meal? If, however, like the rest of us, you aren’t exactly ballin’, here are some top Mother’s Day restaurant deals we’ve found.
Some of these places have free meals for mum – even free buffets – while others offer free food as long as there are several other paying diners. If you’re not into buffets, there are plenty of other promotions to make the best of, and you’re bound to find something here that’ll appeal to the entire family!
Bring your mum to PORTA’s Mother’s Day Semi-Buffet Lunch if she has epicurean taste buds, and she’ll get to dine free with three paying adults. Highlights of the buffet include Channel Bass & Risotto, Roasted Duroc Pork, and 48-hour Short Ribs. Bring along some coloured pens and markers, write a message to your mum in one of their special Mother’s Day card, and stand a chance to win a weekend staycation at Park Hotel Clarke Quay!
MONTI offers a luxurious Brunch Buffet ($90++ onwards per pax) that is made complete with the scenic Marina Bay skyline. On 14 May, all mums are entitled to some special perks in celebration of Mother’s Day. If you have a mother at your table, you’ll get to enjoy a complimentary Fruitti De Mare (a seafood platter with lobster) that’s limited to one per table. Mums will also get a free glass of Mimosa Cocktail and free boat rides around the bay upon request!
3. Spices Cafe
On the Mother’s Day weekend, Spices Cafe is offering all mums a free Harvest of the Sea Buffet Dinner ($58++ adult, $22++ child). Expect a variety of seafood dishes – including at least six crab dishes such as Chilli Crab, Sambal Crab, and Salted Egg Crab – or enjoy their fresh seafood on ice. On top of that, each diner can pick a complimentary serving of Braised Baby Abalone with Broccoli and Mushroom, or 200g Lobster with your choice of either cheese, mentaiko or mushroom sauce. The only catch is the prerequisite of at least three paying adults for this promotion to stand.

For something more memorable, hop onto a cable car from VivoCity and head to Spuds and Aprons, which is located on the top of Faber Peak.

On the Mother’s Day weekend itself, mums will receive a complimentary signature main course, provided there are three other main courses purchased.
