In many days of the year, he may be just plain reliable dad who fixes broken stuff in the house or helps his kids over a difficult homework. But on this special day, dad should be treated like a king to thank him for all the hard work he tires over for his family.
Since special people deserve special treats, families should try to think out of the box in celebrating Father’s Day today. Dad may be tired of the usual pizza and pasta, or even having a fat juicy steak, so besides trying out a new cuisine for the occasion, pick a place that will make him feel like a king.
A quick search on food websites nowadays will always include Casa Roces on the recommended list.
Dubbed as “the heritage restaurant in the heart of the capital”—since the old house is within the vicinity of Malacanan Palace—Casa Roces served as the residence of one of the most prominent families in the country, as well as the home of National Artist Alejandro Roces.
Amid beautiful interiors that date back to the Spanish era, and recuerdos passed on for many generations, a very interesting menu of re-concocted Filipino and Spanish favorites are offered on the menu, such as Lamb Kaldareta and Lengua in Mushroom-Cognac Sauce, among many others.
For Father’s Day, however, Casa Roces is holding its “Papi Mio! Father’s Day Barbecue Specials” for lunch and dinner, designed to satisfy a king’s appetite.
Dad will surely enjoy a line-up that starts with a refreshing take on Russian Salad. Bring out the gourmand in him as he feasts on a generous serving of BBQ Pork Ribs; Assorted Skewers of Beef, Pork or Lamb; Grilled Hungarian and Schublig Sausages; Cheesy Macaroni with Roasted Pimientos and Bacon Crumbles; Mashed Potato; Morcilla Rice with Crunchy Bacon; Chili con Carne with Melted Cheese and Nachos; and Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chili Butter and Grilled Vegetables. Top off this cornucopia of dishes with delectable desserts like Leche Flan, Key Lime Pie and Chocolate Mousse.
As a treat, father will also get two complimentary sub-zero local beers, or a half price off on their drink of choice.
Casa Roces is located at 1153 J. P. Laurel corner Aguado Streets in San Miguel, Manila. For more information, call 735-5896; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; or log on to www.casaroces.com.
