As Father’s Day in South Africa lands on June 20, 2021, here are five great spots to treat Pops to a meal, any time of the day:
HOW ABOUT A BUFFET BREAKFAST AT RADISSON BLU GAUTRAIN?
For some, it’s the best meal of the day – breakfast! Spoil the early morning riser with a Sunday morning signature Full English Breakfast buffet at Central One Restaurant for only R125 per person.
It’s a full spread for the man of the house from cereals, pastries, yoghurts, cold meats and bread to all the warm favourites including bacon, sausages, an omelette station and so much more!
Bookings are essential. For more information or to reserve your seat, contact +27-11-286-1000.
HOW ABOUT AN ELEVATED BRUNCH AT SÉJOUR?
Featuring a menu inspired by Chef Freddie Dias’s Portuguese upbringing, his time spent living in France, and a fervent natural curiosity for food.
Chef Freddie, who has cooked in top kitchens the world over – including four years at the celebrated Cape Town eatery The Pot Luck Club, brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the kitchen. Driven by his natural curiosity and eagerness to always learn more, the acclaimed chef draws influences from all aspects of his life whether it be his upbringing, travels abroad or his many years in service.
The first br(eakfast) course is an egg dish of parmesan Catalan, chive scrambled eggs and hake Brandade. Fresh, homemade Pissaladière is served on the side – a traditional French ciabatta topped with onion, anchovy and black olive. The second, (l)unch course features a lamb rack with a red pepper and herb crust, mint feta yoghurt, Moroccan-style cous cous, BBQ brinjal with pomegranate molasses and honey, roasted vegetables with almonds and turmeric and Lyonnaise fine beans.
A collection of traditional Portuguese pastries – Pasteis de Nata and Bolas de Berlim (almond filled doughnuts) – make for a very sweet ending.

HOW ABOUT A DECADENT BRAAI AT THE MASLOW HOTEL?
The Maslow’s Executive Chef, Omar Menhouk and his team have curated a delicious braai spread, with everything from grilled dorado marinated in ginger and soya, teriyaki chicken, pork chops, pepper beef steaks, boerewors, and of course, the ubiquitous braai broodjie. Alongside this are fresh salads, from bean to potato and more, as well as side dishes like butternut, baked potato and several sauces to make your taste buds tingle.
Every South African man loves a braai, but now, on Father’s Day, he doesn’t need to fire up the braai!

Then bring it home with a sweet treat mini cake. Try pairing a new-on-the-menu light caramel-flavoured sponge sandwiched together with salted caramel ganache, topped with white chocolate shavings, with the limited-time-offer salted caramel latte – steamed salted caramel infused milk and espresso shots.
