Mark your calendar for 10 May! That’s when we’re celebrating the first ladies in our lives: our dearest mums or the mothers of our children! Can’t dine out? No problem. We’ve listed the best delivery and takeaway picks for Mother’s Day, from some of the top restaurants in town. All she has to do is sit back and enjoy it!
Morton’s The Steakhouse
If Mum’s a steak lover, Morton’s prepare-at-home menus will do the trick. Each steak kit features a fab range of Morton’s classic favourites, complete with comprehensive cooking instructions from the restaurant’s Regional Chef Panos Kalamidas for fuss-free preparation. Also included are the restaurant’s signature seasoning and house-made jus – easy peasy!
Perfect for a party of two, the Table for Two ($158) package includes two six-ounce slabs of centre-cut Filet Mignon plus a duo of five-ounce cold water lobster tails, accompanied by a house salad with Morton’s blue cheese dressing or red wine vinaigrette. You’ll also get to choose your side dish (creamed spinach for us, please!). The meal rounds up with an indulgent slice of New York cheesecake.
Bigger families can check out the Ultimate Grill packages, which can be catered to feed parties of four to five ($288), or seven to eight ($468). Prefer not to step into the kitchen? There are selected cooked items on the à la carte menu, including a three-course set ($98) with dishes like roasted tomato bisque and honey-balsamic glazed Atlantic salmon.
Islandwide delivery costs $15. Alternatively, pick up your order from the restaurant. To place an order, call 6339 3740.
