Have a picky eater? Whether your father is a traditionalist or modern eater, we’ve got you covered with a list of places where you can dine out and spend quality time with the family.

Elemen

If you haven’t already, encourage dad to adopt a healthy lifestyle by beginning with opting for wholesome meals. Put your senses to the test with quirky creations from the 8-course parent’s day menu ($42.80 per person)—think monkey-head mushroom with mee kia in pomelo sauce, charcoal tofu with wild mushroom, or chendol cake with gelato that boast natural flavours, and you’ll find there’s much more to meatless cuisine. #01-75A Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Boulevard.
