FRESH SEAFOOD BUFFET, AND MORE, FIT FOR MOTHERS | Azur (Tel: 68235354) at the Crowne Plaza, Changi Airport, has one of the fanciest spreads in town for Mother's Day, with focus on fresh seafood. Whether you are having brunch ($60.84 per person) or dinner ($79.56 per person), dive straight in and pile those plates with Boston lobsters, poached purple scallops in shell, Australian oysters and spanner crabs. Let mum sample both local and Western fare, with Azur’s signature Singapore-style chilli crabs, wok fried har lok prawns (prawns in spicy fermented bean sauce), seafood ragout in saffron sauce, and pan-fried snow fillet with curry herb butter. We're really not doing it enough justice - you should check out the selection for yourself. Available from May 10 to 12.

FRENCH FARE FOR MAMA | For a dose of French flair (and fare) this mother's day, treat mum to Balzac Brasserie's three-course special menu (Tel: 63360797). Chef Jean-Charles Dubois offers a decadent menu ($91.26 per person) for the occasion: choose your starter from a trio of options - a lobster bisque with sautéed organic mini black Qwehli prawns (cultivated in Mozambique), a foie gras terrine with petit salad of chickpea and a Saint Jacques (scallop) carpaccio. For mains, the highlight is the signature 48-hour braised Wagyu beef cheeks. End on a sweet note with the Maman (French for "Mummy") dessert platter. Available on 12 May for lunch and dinner.
Do more than just send a card this Mother's Day and show some appreciation by way of the belly. From traditional Chinese favourites to lavish seafood filled Champagne lunches to surprise cake deliveries, here's how to treat your mother like a queen
Food fads. Some stay, some go. Some score high, others dip low. We take stock of the more eye-catching ones (clue: there's a lot of rainbow action) and single out who in Singapore will be the first to jump on the bandwagon
