Have you made plans on how to celebrate Mother’s Day this year? Why not head down to Capella Singapore in Sentosa for a Mother’s Day Brunch at The Knolls.

My family and I went for a preview tasting of their Mother’s Day brunch two weekends ago and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The weekend buffet brunch at The Knolls is always packed, even on regular weekends. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Mother’s Day at The Knolls will see a Mediterranean-inspired Sunday brunch with a twist. The Knolls will be transformed into a beautiful bustling garden of flowers where guests can design and create your own unique floral bouquets for mothers.

This dish was a little funky for me, but was an unique culinary experience – foie gras served in Bouillon, topped with anchovies and tomato paste:

The head chef at The Knolls is a very friendly Frenchman who will sashay around the restaurant to mingle with all the guests, making culinary recommendation while exchanging jokes and friendly banters. With him and the roving live band, the dinning experience is homely, yet festive and exquisitely delectable with the choicest selection of food and wines. The perfect treat for a special occasion like Mother’s Day. 🙂
