Growing up in a family of eleven kids, Mother’s Day was an annual cause for celebration in our busy home. On this day, mom got to put aside her endless responsibilities. I fondly remember as a child, dressing up in our “Sunday best” and all going to brunch at a fancy hotel after church every Mother’s Day. We’d linger for hours frequenting the bountiful delights of the dessert spread that are now exaggerated, Im sure, in my childhood memories! With Mother’s Day just around the corner, (this weekend friends!!) we’ve done the scouting for you and are excited to share three of our top recommendations for Mother’s Day Brunch to treat that special someone in your life to a family feast that will honor her with the memories of her little ones gathered around a beautiful brunch that she didnt have to prepare!!
Red Oven So Sofitel “Drunch”
Suggested Business Casual Attire
This no-expense-spared high end buffet is at the top of our family favorites, offering one of Bangkok’s most lavish and extensive weekend brunches. In addition to Sunday brunch, their Saturday “Drunch” combines the concept of drinks and brunch (“drunk-n-brunch”), with signature cocktails as part of their buffet spread. Weekend afternoons from noon-3:00, the restaurant, built around an industrial size Red Molteni Oven, displays a vast assortment of appetizers, entrees and desserts all inspired by the concept of 9 distinct street food stations.
There is something for everybody from the most sophisticated foodie to the fickle five year old in your family. With the expansive selection at every station, you will be wanting for nothing as you return time-after-time to feast your eyes and tastebuds on beautifully displayed decadent cuisine.
Start with a fresh caesar salad and mix in your own proportions of shaved parmesan, bacon crumbles and anchovies. A side plate of rich camemberts and brie’s will go nicely with the warm fresh-out-of-the-oven rolls served hot to your table. The cold cuts and hummus make for a great starter course and the free-flow wine pairs nicely with your fresh made-to-order sushi from the Japanese corner. Seafood lovers will be in paradise selecting from the bar laden with Alaskan king crab, giant prawns and Belon French oysters. Traditional brunch fare such as waffles, crepes and pancakes are available with all the favorite sweet temptations for drizzling and topping. Made-to-order dishes such as burgers and pastas are available in addition to a wide selection of Thai and Western favorites on the buffet such as pizzas, stir-fry rice dishes, noodles, quiche, vegetables and a carving station with succulent beef and tender lamb shank.
Little ones will delight in the cold stone creamery which allows you to select from homemade cold concoctions at the ice cream counter and mix in favorites from the topping jars. The dessert case exhibits miniature cakes, pastries and tarts all sized proportionally so you can guiltlessly sample more than one! And then there is the chocolate fondue with fruits, marshmallows and cookies for dipping – sure to be a winning feature with the kids around your table!
The free-flow wine selection of red, white, rose and sparkling truly makes this Mom’s first choice for celebrating her special day!
The Red Oven restaurant sits perched on the 7th floor of the So Sofitel hotel with a breathtaking panoramic view of the vast green of Lumphini park and guarantees an unforgettable and unmatched brunch honoring Mom with a special family experience!
