Think giant wedges of meat! If you can handle your steak, we definitely recommend the Porterhouse steak which is served on a chopping board and ordered by the 100 gram. The steak is grass fed Black Angus beef and the sides are equally as tempting, including steak fries and duck-fat potatoes! The sauces to accompany the meat include chimichurri, salsa para or truffle béarnaise or you can just stick to the natural beef jus gravy. Beast is a cavern for carnivores and your dad would appreciate the hearty mains, which includes meat cooked to perfection.

The restaurant combines life’s two greatest passions: good music and great soul food. Their signature dish is called Sticky Bones, a truly authentic, old-fashioned, prime pork ribs slow-cooked and smoked in coal and hickory wood to tender mouth-watering perfection, then basted with a gluey sweet-and-sour tomato-based sauce. Your dad will love the ol’fashioned barbecued pork ribs, with an extra dose of charming Southern hospitality. Come for great tasting ribs, and good variety of food and drink options.

There normally seems like there are lines at this restaurant so if you are planning to bring your dad here, you should definitely book in advance. It’s a good thing that their service is very fast, complete with iPads for you to make your orders so you can expect to fill your famished stomachs with delightful yakitori as soon as possible. One of our favourites at Senya would be their Hokkaido pork, a giant portion of pork belly slices, so sinfully tasty. The semi-private booths are decorated with fun posters and Japanese elements, reflecting as if you were dining on the busy streets of Shibuya at night. The pork is enough for us to go back – charred on the edges and lightly caramelized.

You can’t have a meal at the Shack without eating their sausages. Their wursts are homemade and showcase their artisan sausage making skills using only premium ingredients. The sausages are made using real spices, sea salt and natural sausage casings to enclose the fillings. Their signature BBQ Spanish meaty pork ribs are delicious and literally fall off the bone. Try their Jamon Serrano which is a type of dry cured Spanish Ham served in thin slices, made from the landrace breed of white pig. The ham is smooth, slightly salty and perfect when you wrap it with melon.

The name suggests German roots, and yes they definitely boast the best of Bavarian cuisine with a wide variety of German ales.

Let your dad wrap his fingers around an ice cold Paulaner beer and tuck into authentic Bavarian cuisine – a sausage platter called Würstelplatte consisting of pork bratwurst, spicy chicken, mini pork cheese and garlic sausages and more. It’s enough to satisfy your family’s carnivorous appetite.
