EVERY year, on the third Sunday of June, most countries celebrate Father’s Day to honor the roles that father and father figures play in our lives. Dads may vary in personality and their interests, but one sure-fire way to make this day an unforgettable one for them is to treat them to an all-you-can-eat feast or have them enjoy toys for the big boys. Here are some of the best places where you can bond with dad on his special day.
Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino
The city hotel will be offering a “Dad’s the Best” lunch and dinner buffet at its UNO restaurant.
The spread will include Cebu lechon, roast beef, grilled meat and seafood, Chinese and Japanese stations and a whole lot more. For every group of four, dad gets to eat for free. All dads dining in on Father’s Day will also receive a celebratory cake, courtesy of Waterfront Cebu.
The hotel’s pastry team has also created a “Daddy-cated Mocha Cake” for the occasion, fit for all dads who dedicated their lives for their families. Orders have to be placed at least a day in advance.
Bai Hotel Cebu
Order Bai Hotel’s steak sampler which has succulent and perfectly seared steaks served with crowd favorite sides such as mashed potatoes and thick-cut fries. This is available at the hotel’s Lobby Lounge.
The “Burger Almighty” is a one-pound burger made with dry-aged beef -- because dad deserves only the best. This behemoth burger which can be shared by four persons is available at the Lobby Lounge, Twilight, Pool Bar and also for in-room dining.
If those aren’t enough, then Cafe Corazon’s lunch and dinner buffet will have dad feasting like a king. If dad has a sweet tooth, the hotel’s “We Love Dad” white chocolate praline cake will be a treat. Don’t forget to order at least a day ahead.
Radisson Blu Cebu
A brunch banquet and an exclusive showcase of high-end sports bikes await at Radisson Blu. At Feria, dad gets to eat for free when he dines with three full-paying guests. Eight buffet stations feature light starters like sushi, cold cuts and salads; the distinct flavors of Indian, Chinese, Mediterranean, Malaysian and Filipino cuisines; and heavy mains such as roasted prime beef, Cebu lechon, baby back ribs, roasted duck, a-la-minute burger and Malaysian laksa, among others. These come with free-flowing beverages and a selection of local beers.
If your dad is a motorbike aficionado, take him to the Grand Lobby where top-of-the-line motorcycles from Motology, Triumph Motorcycles Cebu and Harley-Davidson Cebu will be on display from June 18 to 20.
Ayala Center Cebu
Choose your favorite photo of your dad and have Cebuano artists draw a portrait for free when you present a single or accumulated receipt spend of at least P3,000 from any Ayala Center Cebu stores.
An automobile showcase at The Gallery will excite gear heads with the latest models from Nissan, Toyota and Suzuki. There will also be a motorcycle display with participating brands such as BMW Motorrad, Ducati, Motor Ace, Triumph and Mini Cooper.
For gift ideas, from lifestyle audio merchandise to a brand-new outfit, dad’s go-to brands are available at the “Off the Rack: #DadApproved” fair.
For an Instagram-worthy dining experience with the entire family, treat dad to his favorite meal with Ayala Center Cebu’s “Dining by Design” at The Terraces.
