2. La Viña
There’s no sweeter way to show your gratitude this Mother’s Day than with the Strawberry Layer Cake ($520) from La Viña. The limited-edition six-inch cake is covered with a generous layer of fresh Japanese strawberries, then topped with a few dainty, iced flowers. We’re impressed by how well the berries and the homemade strawberry jam go together with the cream cheese vanilla mousse, pink honey sponge, and the nutty almond crust. Oh, and note that you need to pre-order this cake online at least one day in advance (available until 9 May), with same-day delivery available for those in Hong Kong Island.

Inspired by British-influenced Chinese culinary tradition during her time in the UK, Suzanna, the founder of 1908BC, has designed two unique Mother’s Day menus (available from 5 to 8 May) to honour all the mums out there. Carrying a stronger sense of nostalgia and tradition would be the Old Hong Kong Mother’s Day Menu (from $620/person), which is an eight-course feast for families of four or more. You’ll find comfort food and time-honoured classics, such as the Double-boiled Pork and Hairy Fig Soup – a hearty, nourishing broth; Fish Maw with Chinese Mushrooms in Abalone Sauce; Giant River Prawns in a Tangy Tomato Sauce; and more.
If you’d like to try some contemporary British Chinese affair, the New Hong Kong Mother’s Day Menu (from $480/person) would be perfect. Expect some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes on this menu, including the Butterfly Prawn Toast; Crispy Aromatic Duck; Crispy Shredded Beef; amongst others.
