Mother’s Day only comes once a year, so make your mom feel extra special and go for a lovely bonding time in these Instagram-worthy brunch places:
Tea for two
Avoid the crowds and go for something warm and cozy with TWG’s exclusive Mother’s Day set menu.
Start the meal with lightly pickled sliced beets with a blue cheese mousse infused with Napoleon Tea, topped with tomato confit, fresh radish, tomato emulsion, smoked cucumbers and ciabatta crumbs. The poached seabass served on romaine lettuce in a kombu broth, accompanied by summer vegetables and basil pesto with Matcha oil is perfect for a light and refreshing lunch.
The best part comes the dessert with a strawberry mousse dome with dark chocolate and honeycomb bits, paired with a hot cup of Jasmine tea.
Their table settings are just too perfect for words.
