I always feel like the Father’s Day is overshadowed by the Mother’s Day and we probably all feel guilty about that but not this year. On this Father’s Day (it’s 18 June, just a kind reminder), we decide to spoil our beloved papas and their stomachs so here are our roundup for that.
The “market to table” restaurant aspires to capture the vibrancy of an Italian marketplace, striking a rich balance between the rustic and the refined, the public and the domestic. From 17-18 June, they will be serving additional Father’s Day specials on top of the usual a la carte-style brunch offerings ($650+10% per person), including a sumptuous Lobster Benedict, Asparagus & Bacon, and an irresistibly indulgent Peanut Butter Brownie Sundae dessert. Upon arrival, all dads are treated to the 2-hour free-flow of Prosecco that they so deserve.

Flying Pig Bistro
The newly opened restaurant located in Sai Ying Pun that brings an urban rustic vibe to the neighborhood. Just like the name suggested, it serves various pork dishes with Asian twist such as Pork Cheek with Thai Salad ($218), Crispy Pork Belly with Dutch mashed potato & rosemary juice ($198), or the Father’s Day Special: Pork Knuckle Dutch mashed potato, sauerkraut with pancetta (for 1-2, $245, includes 2 glasses of Stella Artois) As the Sai Ying Pun Station is now serving, there is another reason to kick in the area.

Buenos Aires Polo Club
The Argentinian steakhouse is influenced by the South American country’s passion for the polo game and dynamic grilling culture and the elite members-only clubs. It is decorated with leather chairs, antique polo equipment and oil paintings. Apart from delivering premium meat dishes and Argentinian wine, they have just launched a bar called Buenos Aires Rock Club which showcased the inventive mixology includes Waterloo with tequila, pama and lime, and Hendrix Haze with vodka, taylor port and lemon (both priced at $118) on every Thursday from 10pm. Is there a more sophisticated place than this to have bonding time with your dad?

If you are looking for a place that stays away from the crowd, then Saint Germain will probably be your best option. The charming braserrie serve authentic French cuisine in the quiet neighborhood which will make you feel like having a getaway to Paris for a day…or at least a meal. For the upcoming Father’s Day, they feature Iberico Pork Pluma with sautéed potatoes & mushroom ($ 268, includes a glass of Stella Atois). Their famous Sear Lamb Cutlet ($ 198) is equally worth trying too.
