There's no excuse to not celebrate your dad's big day, even if dining out is still not an option. You can always order-in a feast…and many restaurants are making it easy for you to do so these days.
Here are some of our favourite restaurants with menus that you and dad will love:
Putien's Pot Of Goodies ($228)
What: Pen Cai, a traditional Cantonese braised dish. Usually eaten during festive events.
Why you should get it for dad: If your dad loves classic chinese dishes, this is definitely one of them. The dish is braised for eight hours and contains quality ingredients (i.e. abalone, scallops, mushrooms, fish maw, dried razor clams, chicken wings, roast pork, sea cucumber, first harvest seaweed, and white cabbage).
How to order: Putien only offers a self-collection option. Pre-orders begin now and diners who order three days in advance get a special 20 per cent discount, along with a complimentary Spice Mum Chilli Sauce.
You can also order same-day takeaway (while stocks last) from the various outlets (Kitchener Road, ION Orchard, Jurong Point, *Marina Square, Nex, Northpoint, Parkway Parade, *Raffles City, *SingPost Centre, Tampines Mall and VivoCity) via here.

Amò Italian Father's Day Feast (from $215 for four pax)
What: A feast filled with freshly made antipasti, pasta, pizza and desserts.
Why you should get it for dad: The pizzas are made using slow dough fermentation, and that means you'll get an extremely flavourful crust. They're then topped with fresh seasonal ingredients and cooked in an Italian wood-fire oven for a crisp finish. It's all very authentic. And P.S., their pastas are all freshly made in-house.
How to order: Order via www.amorestaurant.sg/fathersday. Pre-order 24 hours in advance. Free delivery.
SPRMRKT's Father's Day Bagels (from $14 per bagel or $45 for a two pax bundle)

Why you should get it for dad: If your dad's a carb-lover, it's time to get him some sourdough. It's bread, but a whole lot better.
