Father’s Day may not hold as much weight as Mother’s Day, but dad certainly deserves to be feted and fed no less.

While fathers may be harder to shop for, it’s much easier to please his stomach.

Here, we’ve rounded up four restaurants to satiate both his passion for World Cup and his appetite.

For massive German platters

Sharing is caring, and what better to way show it than with Brotzeit’s sharing platters?

Meat-loving dads will enjoy the 1kg Pfandl platter ($39), which includes succulent Nürnberger sausages, tender pan-seared beef, savoury pork patties, smoked Kassler, roasted pork collar and meatloaf — laid atop a helping of creamy mashed potatoes.

Meanwhile, larger families can opt for the World Cup Feast ($98) that comes with a choice of six different tapas and a 3-litre keg of draught beer.

Swing by on Sunday for a buffet-style brunch (from $58 per adult), featuring a wide selection of grilled sausages, crispy grilled pork knuckle, apple strudel and other scrumptious German delights.

At the kids’ fun zone, little ones can show appreciation to dad with a customised Father’s Day trophy and card while the adults sit back and relax.

The cherry on top? Football-loving dads can catch live screenings of the highly anticipated Germany vs Mexico match on the bar’s LCD screens!

For amazing burritos and a variety of Mexican drinks

If dad loves a good burrito, he will love Margarita’s.

Topped with creamy guacamole and sour cream, their popular Kitchen Sink Burrito ($24) is packed to the brim with huge chunks of meat, juicy tomatoes and crunchy peppers, making it a great choice for a filling and satisfying dinner.

The Atlantic Grilled Octopus ($28) boasts a delightfully soft and springy texture, but it is the robust garlic paste seasoning that makes it a must-try.
