Eight Places to Dine with Dad

He helped you up when you scraped your knee. He made sure you grew up with the right values. Treat Daddy Dearest at these eateries we’ve scoped out.



If you’re wine lovers, brunch at St Regis’ Italian restaurant is the place to be — just imagine dad sipping on franciacorta or prosecco wine, while enjoying the tranquillity of the pool. He’ll also get to tuck into imported cheeses, cured hams, handmade pastas and a selection of main courses from meats and poultry to seafood.

Café Mosaic

Dads will receive a mug of beer compliments of the chic eatery. After which, it’ll be time to feast on a gastronomic spread of international delicacies from cold seafood on ice, dim sum choices and bite-sized pastries, to mouth-watering mains including crispy pork belly, roasted duck, lamb tandoori and wok-fried brown mussels.

Fat Cow

Meat and whisky, that’s the right way to a man’s heart. On June 14, this Japanese wagyu steakhouse will introduce a six-course menu that comes with a complimentary glass of Glenmorangie 10-years whisky served straight or as a cocktail. Or if Dad so prefers, a glass of Moet & Chandon champagne.

Balzac Brasserie & Bar

The extensive menu by Executive Chef Jean-Charles Dubois begins with an amuse bouche of Egg Cocotte with Foie Gras and Parmesan with three choices of mains — Sautéed Free Range Yellow Chicken, Roasted Atlantic Sea Scallop with Potota Puree and Pan-seared Wagyu Beef Flank with Gratinated Potato Gratin. Not to mention the free flow selection of freshly shucked French oysters at one of its three live counters.

Chef Sam Leong’s menu includes a steamed egg chawanmushi with foie gras in yuzu sauce, steamed salmon fish with ginger flower, lemon and kaffir lime leaves, and crispy noodles with sautéed wagyu beef, spring onion and ginger. After that, toast to dad’s good health with the restaurant’s complimentary glass of Penfolds Private Reserve chardonnay.

Tea Lounge

It’s a day out for the whole family. While Dad savoura sweet treats the likes of Whisky Macarons and Bitter Chocolate Choux, the young ones will be occupied at the Kid’s Corner decorating their very own cupcakes. No hints, but the chefs also have a little surprise in store for fathers that day.
