You might usually hit your favourite cafe for Mother’s Day brunch or a restaurant for a fancy lunch, and while you can’t do that this year, there are plenty of Perth restaurants delivering on the delicious Mother’s Day lunch options this year.
From hampers to full blown banquets, here’s where to get mum a Mother’s Day lunch in Perth, lockdown style.
Young George is dishing up the goods this Mother’s Day. Whether you want a little hamper or a massive feast, they’ve got you covered. The hampers feature fresh-baked sourdough, Australian cheeses, chicken parfait, prosecco and more, making them the perfect accompaniment to a Mother's Day picnic in the park. If you're after something more substantial, the deluxe feast will get you going. With charcuterie to start and a butterflied leg of Mottainai lamb with triple fried potatoes, charred carrots and salad, mum will be singing your praises all year, and that's not even all of it. Finish up with apple crumble and then dig into the cheese course when you've recovered from your food coma. Our advice: don’t eat breakfast.
If your Mum loves dumplings, all of her dreams can come true this Mother’s Day thanks to the team at Double Rainbow. These guys have gone and created red rose dumplings—and they really do look like roses—so you can give mum the tastiest flowers she'll ever receive. For $35 you'll get three pork and three prawn dumplings, just order online and they'll be in touch to arrange pick up or delivery. If you want more of a feast for the whole fam, the apocalypse pack for two people includes 10 pork dumplings, 10 chicken and chive dumplings, four BBQ pork buns and four veggie buns, as well as a dipping sauce, bamboo steamer and cooking instructions. Make it fancy and add prosecco or opt for hot tea, and while you’re at it choose snacks like edamame and pickled cucumbers, extra sauces and more.
Chef George at Brika has created two specials—a Greek-style charcoal chicken tray and a whole Amelia Park lamb shoulder—available for delivery from 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. You can even add a bottle of wine or a six pack of beer to your order, which can be placed here.
Claremont, Whitfords, South Perth, City Beach
If you want to treat your mum to a Chinese feast, look no further than Miss Chow’s. Their Mother’s Day pack includes spring rolls, chicken dumplings, sweet and sour pork, chicken Hokkien noodles, special fried rice, veg and prawn crackers. But that’s not all. They’re also throwing in sparkling water, prosecco and a couple of New York cheesecakes so you finish on a sweet note.
Odyssea has been slaying the iso takeaway game so you might want to get in early before their Mother’s Day lunch sells out. They’ve got a three-course feast on offer on both Saturday and Sunday, so you can celebrate twice if you really want to. You’ll start with pork belly or WA lobster before moving on to mains—a choice of butterflied spatchcock, local fish with creamed tahini or a drool-worthy pumpkin, eggplant and mushroom dish for the vegans and vegos. Dessert is ivory chocolate with mango compote, coconut meringue and dehydrated raspberry. You know you want to.
Think mum would like BBQ beef short ribs and a couple of bottles of good wine? Hit up Juanita's and they'll provide just that, plus some sides of course.
Tiny’s is delivering their famous roast chook and they’re throwing in the sides for free. Think smoked ocean trout, extra drippings potatoes, roast cauliflower and sweet potatoes. Of course, you can also add some wine or crafties to your order thanks to Tiny’s Bar.
If your mum is into Indian eats, you'll want to put in an order for Mother's Day lunch at Sauma. These guys are cooking up a three-course feast that you won't want to miss. To start, there's pani puri, curry puffs and cauliflower and kale pakoras. For mains, you'll get to chow down on Sauma’s butter chicken, a Kerela pork curry and a green bean thoran salad with rice, naan and raita and then you can finish things off with mango panna cotta. Add a bottle of bubbles to your order if you really want to treat your mum. Just remember to pre-order by 1pm on Friday.
If your mum is more of a burgers and cocktails kind of mum, The Peach Pit is putting together burgers hampers complete with two burgers, chips and a litre of Aperol Spritz, plus a surprise for your mum. You can also order any of their other takeaway cocktails, tap beer and wine, or add extra burgs if there's more than four in your fam.
In case you missed it, Pinchos just re-opened and they'll be dishing up their famous paella on Mother's Day. You'll get that with sides and dessert for four people, all for $100.
A whole roast chicken with salmoriglio dressing, charcoal dripping veg, a chopped salad, garlic bread and cannelloni is on the menu at Cecchi's, so you might want to get your orders in ASAP.
The Treasury Lounge
Even during a lockdown, it wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without high tea. While you can’t take your Mum to the beautiful Treasury Lounge this year, the team at the State Buildings can drop high tea from their autumn menu straight to your door. Think savoury bites like smoked chicken mini baguettes and prawn cocktails followed up with mango bavarois and dark chocolate cremeaux plus more for dessert and you’re on the right track. Delivery is between 1pm and 4pm each day, so just give them a call on 6168 7780 and you’ll be on the right track to spoiling your Mum.
Mary Street Bakery
Perth, West Leederville, City Beach
It’s not lunch, we know, but if you’re more of a brunch type of family you’ll want to get your orders in for Mary Street Bakery’s Mother’s Day boxes. Think four mini croissants, four mini seasonal fruit danishes, two small bacon and egg pies, four fruit and granola yoghurt cups plus a 250g bag of Offshoot’s Workhorse blend coffee beans for mum.
