Father’s Day Treats for the Dads Who Love to Eat
All available for online orders
Consider your Father’s Day 2022 feast secured. This weekend, treat the man or the father figure in your life to a spread they won’t soon forget—and that’s whether they’re big fans of melts-in-your-mouth pastries, big lover sof steak, or just up for pretty much any kind of gastronomical adventure.
If the way to your dad’s heart is through his stomach and you’d much rather stay in than head out, we have five Father’s Day treats you should definitely check out and include in your weekend plans.
Special Croissants from Butterboy Bakehouse
butterboyph.com is pastry heaven, period. This local bakeshop offers a vast array of croissants (take your pick from the classics, special selection, the savory line, and more), where indulging in melts-in-your-mouth pastries has never been so easy. Debit cards, credit cards, GCash, and direct bank transfers (via BPI and BDO) are all available, and orders can be sent to you via Butterboy’s in-house delivery service or a self-booked pick-up arrangement shouldered by the customer.
Items to turn your attention to? Butterboy’s pain au chocolate, truffle fondue basket, and Kouign Amann.
Steak Trays from Ginza Gyu
When hosting a rather big occasion, food trays can be a godsend—especially for those with jam-packed schedules that might not always have the luxury of time for meal prep. On the main course front, restaurants like Ginza Gyu can come to the rescue. Secure big servings of premium wagyu (each tray serves five to six persons), with no fuss and no additional preparations. Just serve buffet-style. Order via ginzagyu.pickup.ph/menu, pay online upon checkout (via Visa, Mastercard, GCash, or GrabPay), then book your preferred courier for your delivery or pick up your order at Ginza Gyu in Techzone Building in Makati.
Crowd favorites here include the Wagyu Skirt Holiday Tray and the 8-Hour Kurobuta Chashu Tray. Meat lovers in the family will have a field day.
Burgers from Hungry Homies
An easy-to-please palate doesn’t mean you scrimp. Treat your dad to burgers he will want to come back to time and again at Hungry Homies. Taking all-time American favorites and giving them a nice Hungry Homies remix, this local burger joint is home to savory smash burgers and good ol’ reliable fries. The Hypebeef is a must-try. This is Hungry Homies’ California-style double cheeseburger that you’re free to customize according to you and/or your dad’s liking.
A Japanese Feast from Taste & Tell
Taste & Tell has always been here to smoke all other sushi bake brands—and it’s time your dad got in on the experience. Another for-sharing option that’s perfect for big families, this Makati-based specialty kitchen now offers packages just for Father’s Day (read: set meals you don’t have to overthink). The Fit for a King bundle (₱6,600) comes with a full spread: a medium scallop and salmon tray, a medium wagyu sukiyaki don tray, set A of their “Chef’s Feast,” and two complementary cans of Sola. The My Super Dad bundle (₱6,400), meanwhile, includes a medium kani aburi tray, a medium suteki aburi tray, and set B of their “Chef’s Feast.”
Place your order on the website, choose between delivery and pick-up, and then pay online upon checkout. The available modes of payment are direct bank transfers (via BDO, BPI, UnionBank) and GCash.
Pizza from Nicci PH
Nothing says universal crowd-pleaser like pizza. And at Nicci PH, your dad and your family will thank you later for hand-crafted, traditional Neapolitan-style pizza you all can bond over. The Pinoy twist in all this is that everything is made of locally-sourced ingredients.
Take your pick between red sauce pizzas and white sauce pizzas that you can drizzle with delicious Mindanao honey (the Picante pizza and the Benito pizza are must-try items). That said, these are not to be discounted: the classic beef lasagna you can pair with Nicci PH’s red wine selection.
