Mother’s Day at Portside Wharf
Mother’s Day is a prime opportunity to tell your mama how much she means to you – and there’s no better way to reach the heart than through the stomach. Sip bubbles and snack on mouth-watering bites at @ Mr and Mrs Jones, where a three-course brunch of mini quiches, bacon-and-egg sliders, zucchini-and-halloumi fritters and passionfruit mousse tartlets awaits. Once the clock strikes lunchtime, make tracks to Belvedere Bar n Grill and dine on meaty morsels with a waterfront view. If Mum is craving the flavours of the Mediterranean, Byblos Bar & Grill is serving up a mouth-watering mezza banquet featuring an array of Lebanese classics – think delicious dips, tabbouleh, falafel and oven-baked marinated lamb – plus, you’ll score a complimentary cocktail to sip on too. More heavenly flavours await at Italian eats haven Gusto da Gianni, where the team has created a special three-course set menu to mark the occasion. If Japanese is Mum’s favourite cuisine, take her to Sono Japanese Restaurant for some authentic Japanese delights and a refreshing yuzu cocktail, or if it’s a more casual feed she desires, Aamaya, Ginga Sushi, Bamboo Basket, Burrito Bar and Pineapple Express will all be open for dine in and takeaway.
If you’re yet to snap up a present for Mum, head to the Portside Markets on Saturday May 8 from 12:00–4:00 pm to shop a huge range of goodies made by local makers and creatives. You’ll be able to snag handmade ceramics, accessories, art, natural skincare and much more. There’s plenty on at Portside Wharf on Sunday May 9 – including a sweet serenade from musician John Reeves from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.
