Quickbites: Mother’s Day 2010
My mother is the bomb. ‘Momma T’, as she is known, is someone I admire (she went to uni on a dope scholarship in a time when the ladies weren’t encouraged to seek careers), envy (she eats double what I do, yet I am double her size), and laugh at (“I want to…dance! I want to…get down!” is among many choice one-liners she’s uttered). What better way to thank her than take her out and stuff her face with a delicious, fatty, insulin-spiking, cholesterol-encouraging, breakfast?
Here are some suggestions on how you can treat your mom (damn straight I still spell it MOM) this Mother’s Day:
1. Satisfy her belly and sanity at Brett’s Wharf. The Hamilton restaurant is offering a Mother’s Day lunch, along with roving magicians and face painters to keep the little ones entertained. $105/$40, plus the mommas receive a free gift! http://www.brettswharf.com.au/news/mothers-day
2. Challenge stereotypes at Hillstone. Maybe she wants to hit a few rounds of golf while Dad eats pretty cakes, huh? Do either one at the St Lucia golf club’s restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. By the way – the views at this place are seriously gorgeous. Phone 07 3870 3433 for bookings, or visit http://www.hillstonestlucia.com.au/
5. Hot Chocolate Marbre with Crunchy Honeycomb and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Yeah, that’s pretty much all I have to say. Oh, and Alchemy. City. 12pm-3pm. $85. http://www.alchemyrestaurant.com.au/
