Father’s Day: Where To Go For LunchAug 31, 2017


Well, it’s that time of the year again where dad’s get offered the limelight and the chance to celebrate their parenting skills, even though they struggle to make anything but a toasted cheese sandwich and have to rely on mum to remember when your birthday is.

Despite all that, dads are always there to provide you with some advice and a big hug because no matter how tough they want to seem, they are really just cuddly teddy bears at heart.

If you are in charge of finding the perfect restaurant to celebrate your dad this year but are freaking out because, not only can you not decide what present to get him (why are dad’s so hard to shop for?!?!) but you can’t figure out where you should go for lunch, don’t stress because HCS have got you covered with some awesome restaurants to take dad for Father’s Day… and then you can totally just buy him a pair of socks or something? Perhaps it’s not the most original idea but no one will ever turn down a pair of fluffy feet heaters. To all the dad’s out there, may your Father’s Day be better than your jokes!

Coogee Bay Hotel is offering a special Father’s Day meal, Rolled pork belly with apple sage stuffing, Paris mash and pork jus accompanied by a Coopers Pale schooner for just $30, from 12pm. I don’t know about you but that’s a deal if I ever did hear one.

After your stomachs have been fully satisfied, you can soak up the afternoon sun in The Garden (that’s also heated in winter if the sun refuses to show it’s face), with a craft beer, wine or cocktail and lose time reminiscing on all the times dad let you do whatever you wanted while mum was still at work.

Guess who’s open on Father’s Day and serving the most fantastic food in Sydney? Well, you can decide about that last part after you’ve lunched at The Avalon!

We all know the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and luckily this place has created some specials aimed at dad’s who love their meat! For those dining in the restaurant, there’s the surf & turf, including a 250g rump steak with a grilled prawn skewer and served with a bernaise sauce and tempura battered broccoli.

Or if you’re a dad that hates his vegetables no matter how deep fried they are, there’s an all-day sausage sizzle running near the kiosk, serving pork snags for $10, so you can keep him from being hangry after the morning’s beach cricket match.
