Sweet & Sour Pork from Pu Tien Restaurant
Last Sunday, there was some confusion on twitter as some friends had mistaken it as Father’s day. Just in case you are also confused, Father’s day is the 3rd Sunday of June. During Mother’s Day every year, there will always be a big fanfare with flowers and big feasts, on the other hand – everything seems to be relatively quiet on Father’s day.
Sometimes we tend to neglect our fathers for what they have done for us, and I have to admit I am one of the guilty few. My dad probably knows what is my favorite food, while I don’t have much of a clue what he really likes.
But I do know that he prefers Chinese food, and so to celebrate Father’s Day dinner this year, we are going to have a big feast at a Chinese seafood restaurant!
Here’s some suggestions of restaurants for Father’s Day celebration:
Bedrock Bar & Grill – Fathers dine for free with 1 paying adult
The restaurants that I recommended for Father’s day celebration are mainly Chinese-orientated as my dad love Chinese food. But I had to add in Bedrock Bar & Grill after finding out about their superb Father’s day promotion.
It’s a three course set lunch with a starter of cod fish cake, dessert of profiterloes and there’s three different mains to choose from: Striploin Fillet Steak ($35), Seafood Risotto ($32), or Gnocchi Bolognese ($25). From what I understand after calling the restaurant, it’s basically like a 1-for-1 promotion, whereby the father will dine for free with 1 paying adult getting the set lunch.
Note that this promotion is only available tomorrow, 19th June from 12 noon to 1430 hrs as they are not open on Father’s day. Please call the restaurant to confirm about the promotion and make your reservation.

Jing Restaurant – For Weekend Brunch Buffet
I have heard a lot about the weekend brunch dim sum buffet at Jing restaurant, One Fullerton. At just $38++ per head, there’s 18 different dim sum, a good selection of barbecued meat, broth, meat, seafood, rice/noodles, vegetables, desserts and a single portion of chili crab and deep fried soon hock to choose from. Currently there’s a promotion where one dines free with every three paying adults exclusively for DBS credit card members.

Pu Tien Restaurant – For a simple family dinner
Having been to Pu Tien restaurant at Jurong Point a couple of weeks ago, I was impressed with the simplicity yet interesting Chinese food that they offered. It’s a good and affordable place for a family dinner.

Yan Ting Restaurant – For Dim Sum Brunch
What’s there to say about Yan Ting restaurant at St Regis? If you take my words for it, they have the best dim sum in Singapore. Their Weekend dim sum brunch at $88++ is such an extravagant. I’d rather just order from their ala carte dim sum menu and it’s around $20-30 per head.
