It’s another year of not being able to bring mum for a gastronomic trip to Thailand, but she can still enjoy its sumptuous fare with Blue Jasmine’s Mother’s Day Set Menu for takeaway or self-pickup. The repertoire includes signatures, among which are the fiery-tangy tom yum red seafood soup as well as the steamed turmeric chicken with homemade garlic chilli sauce. The latter is a northern Thai dish that comprises chicken steeped in a blend of aromatic herbs and spices before it’s steamed and served with a sour-spicy sauce. Available from May 1 to 9.
