I wrote about spending more time with my family in 2011 and this year, my sis and I both decided that once a month, we will take my mom out for dinner (eating at home is different because she'll have to cook etc) and just enjoy some girlie time together.
We kicked this off by dining at TWG. She has been wanting to try out the tea and cafe so we decided to have dinner that and made reservations a couple of days in advance. In fact, it was all our virgin trip there so it was refreshing for all.
The food is slightly above average quality. I would actually prefer coming here for tea instead. The only macaron that is good (as mentioned previously), is the caramel macaron. The Singapore surprise dessert that we had was quite delicious as well and apparently, the double creme brulee is popular. As for the tea, BEST selection ever albeit mind boggling. 6 full pages to choose from and it's best to ask for recommendations. I believe we went for a white tea (can't even recall the name) and the Happy birthday tea. Proud to say that TWG is a Singaporean home brand. Well done!
Aside from food, it was indeed a lovely evening. I highly recommend that everyone does this with their folks. It was a great bonding session and it was lovely seeing my mom smile so much! They say that mothers are usually under-appreciated so take any opportunity that you have, to make her feel like a Queen. And the following day, we landed up doing another impromptu lunch together as well :)
