It’s only been a little more than a month after Mother’s Day, and now Father’s Day is rapidly approaching – making us scramble around, yet again, for gift ideas and restaurant deals.
And although Phase 2 measures have kicked in – which means we’re now allowed to dine in restaurants and eateries in groups of five – some of us may want to skip the crowds and enjoy a more intimate celebration at home instead. Thankfully, restaurants have rolled out exciting deals and offers for both takeaway and delivery. Here are 18 delicious options, from nostalgic local dishes to exquisite European cuisine for a memorable meal:
Swee Choon has become a household name of sorts if you’re looking for a go-to dimsum spot, all thanks to its affordability, authenticity and appetising qualities. In what could be the best foodie surprise of the year though, they are joining hands with 1 Michelin star restaurant Nouri to put a unique twist to the Cantonese classics you know by heart this Father’s Day.
The limited edition set ($38) comprises three Har Kows with Nouri’s Tahitian Vanilla Black Pepper Sauce, two Baos with Sweetcorn and Jalapeno Chutney, Manjimup Black Truffles and two extra crispy Mee Suah Kueh with Chilli and Sweet Potato Mayo. Considering Swee Choon’s long history of high-quality dimsum, accompanied by how Nouri was listed as one of Asia’s top 50 restaurants, we only have high hopes for what this extravagant set could offer. Dad would be pleased!
Available from 19 to 21 June with limited sets daily for takeaway and delivery.

We’ve had the luxury of trying XLBs all over Singapore or even in other countries, but not many of us have had the opportunity to make one ourselves, even for the XLB lovers. If you’ve ever had Paradise Dynasty’s Xiao Long Baos, you’d know to trust them with their Fun DIY Xiao Long Bao Kit ($23.80) where everything is prepared for you down to the seven basic steps.
To give you an idea of what it is, the kit comes with a bamboo steamer basket, bamboo steam liner, disposable gloves, pork filling (original flavour) and two sets of eight pastry skin made with natural colouring. This essentially means all you have to do is set them up for pleating and steaming – making a cute little activity for the family, with assured taste and quality!
Available for a limited time only for takeaway and delivery.

Address: Paradise Dynasty has multiple outlets.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple celebration with a good old steamboat and zi-char – but for a big family, eating at home is still needed. Thankfully, everyone can still tuck into these old-school specialties from Lai Bao Fish Head Steamboat, even if you don’t want to waste any time on dabao.
Instead of going for their signature Sixties Fish Head Charcoal Steamboat along with handpicking from their menu of traditional and homely dishes, make things easy and fool-proof on the actual day with a set catering to the whole family. The set ($122, serves four to six), features the Red Grouper Fishhead Steamboat (M), Lai Bao Wok Fried Fine Beans (S), Ginger Spring Chicken (Half), Pig Trotter (S), a 13 Spices Black Pepper Crab or Chilli Crab and four Homemade Mango Puddings. You can also opt for the set serving six to eight if you have a bigger family.
For a bigger feast, add on $40 for a choice of another crab or two at $70 (500 – 600 g each)! And have we mentioned? It’s 20 per cent off Father’s Day Special Home Delivery Family sets.
Available until 30 June for free islandwide delivery.

While a treat is significant to show your appreciation for dad, you can wow him with a meal at once nutritious and symbolic with what Yan has to offer.
