Out of 365 days a year, most mothers spend time feeling and looking frumpy. This Mothers’ Day treat yourself - eat something that tastes as good as it looks! Better yet, eat it at a place where your kids can play and you can restfully eat. Guess where? At the newly-opened Jewel Changi Airport! (Yesss!)
For the Old School Pre-Millenial Mom
Our Pick: A & W
Back when you were still dating, did your boyfriend take you on a date to A & W? Or, better yet, did you order via a drive-through restaurant? A & W were the trend setters in Singapore when it came to popularizing drive-through restaurants – they were the first to do so in 1970! Back after 16 long years, A & W is the perfect place to celebrate the present, and look back at the past with fondness. While sipping root beer float, recall memories of your birth family, friends, and look at what you have now: your own family. With your kids, create new memories –while re-living the past!
For the Trend-setting Mom
Our Pick: Shake Shack
It’s been raved about all over the internet. That’s Shake Shack for you – they’ve never set foot in Singapore, but they’re masters of the burger. From New York ALL the way to Singapore, they’re clearly influencers in the food industry. Guess what? Psst...They’re selling selling Pandan shakes (first in Singapore AND South East Asia!). It’s a seductively sweet concoction garnished with gula melaka crumbles! While casually sampling their Pandan Shake, snap an Instagram-worthy photo with your child to commemorate this Mothers’ Day in style. Being a Mother doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, or be on trend – in fact, it’s all the more important to enjoy yourself, because when you’re happy, your kid is happy (as long as you share that shake with them, too!)
P.S. For vegetarian moms, the Shroom Burgers make a great non-meat option!
