While Father’s Day in Australia and New Zealand officially falls in September, this 18 June sees Singapore celebrating Dads with a host of Father’s Day menus on offer. Whether the dad in your life likes a juicy steak and a nice cold beer, a slinky salad and a glass of San Pellegrino, or a boozy buffet brunch and a pick of the tipples, there’s food for all. So go on, show papa how much he rocks with a family day out at one of these restaurants.
The Dining Room, Hotel Telegraph
For Dads who like local history and heritage charm, head to Robinson Road where Small Luxury Hotel Hotel Telegraph sits pretty with its neo-classical façade and ‘conservation status’ amid the skyscrapers. What started out life as The Eastern Extension Telegraph Company in 1927, is this now the setting for a chic new escape complete with all-day cafe, restaurant and bar, The Dining Room. This year, their Father’s Day Special Set Menu on 18 June ($78++ per person) offers Hokkaido Scallop Ceviche, Lobster Bisque, Saikyo Black Cod, and Buah Long Long Plum Sorbet. Seeing as bigging up dear old Dad should not be a one-day affair, it’s worth knowing that The Dining Room’s new Weekend Grill & Roast offers a true taste of home with Beef Tenderloin, Black Angus Ribeye and Striploin from Australia, along with Poultry & Pork and Seafood options including Whole Sea Bass Bakar Balado and Baked Cheesy Boston Lobster. Add a fresh salad of choice (Pasta Salad, Garden Salad, Potato Salad), two side dishes such as Creamy Spinach, Corn on the Cob with Bacon and Gruyere, Rosti Potato or Nasi Lemak Rice, and end your meal on a Deconstructed Tiramisu or Apple Crumble Cake.
