Father’s Day might just be the hardest (or easiest) holiday to find an appropriate gift. There are only so many shirts, pairs of socks, or man cave signs you can get before they get old.
There’s one thing that most dads around the world will never get tired of: a darn good steak with an ice-cold beer and better company.
Tearing a steak apart with your bare teeth and chugging it down with a brewski is an unparalleled activity and would make a damn near perfect Father’s Day gift.
Luckily, a bar on Auckland’s waterfront is providing just that.
Saint Alice, located on the corner of Quay street and Lower Hobson street, is offering one whole kilogram of 55-Day Dry Aged Ribeye Tomahawk Steak.
They posted the feed to their gram - complete with duck fat potatoes, creamed spinach, housemade jus, béarnaise, and compound butter - and fuuark me Sunday feels like a long way away now.
There’ll also be some beersies on offer (you’d bloody hope so) and you’ll have to book and ask for the steak in advance if you want a piece of that juicy goodness.
If your pops is more of a ribs guy, we get that. Luckily another spot on the waterfront can provide you with that.
Dr Rudi’s Rooftop bar is offering a Father’s Day special of a half rack of ribs, fries, slaw and a pint of their own beer for lunch and dinner this Sunday. They say they’ll even chuck a Dr Rudi’s bib your Dad’s way “so he can keep that shirt you got him last year clean.”
The ribs, bibs, and beer combo is $55 per person, so if that sounds like a bit of you, make sure you book at their website ASAP.
If you're not in Auckland, cooking up some quality meat this Sunday sounds like a great idea regardless.
