Mothers Day – Native High Tea

Mum’s are very special. They do a lot for their families and to sum up all our appreciation and love for them on one day out the year is not enough but if you can sweep her off her feet with something extra-special, she will remember it always.

This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday May 13th and Tukka restaurant has got a few extra-special suggestions to help you spoil the mums in your life.

Tukka will be serving a ‘native inspired’ twist to the traditional High Tea at 11:00am. For only $35 per person. Bookings only.

Sample sweet and savory morsels finished with a native flavour of course. Items include pumpkin, lemon myrtle scones served with rosella jam and chantily cream, finger sandwiches of house cured salmon and dark chocolate macaroons filled with quandong jam to tempt you. All to be accompanied with an individual native infused tea of your

Our new Autumn lunch menu will be available for the rest of the day from 11:30am until 4:00pm.

With dishes like grilled mixed asparagus, Tasmanian pepperberry hollandaise, soft boiled quail egg and shaved pecorino and braised apple and anisata pie served with baked rhubarb ice cream, she couldn’t want more.

Treat mum to a 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7 course fine dining experience for dinner from 6:00pm.

She’ll LOVE it, especially since someone else is doing all the cleaning up.

A Tukka gift voucher is an excellent idea to prolong the spoiling if you have something else planned for your mum on mother’s day. Vouchers are available in $30, $50 or $100 but even nicer is our “Dinner for Two” or “Degustation” vouchers.

Those dining with us on Mother’s Day will also go into the draw to win one of 2 $40 wine & cheese tasting vouchers from Cloverly Wines.
