Someone once said people who love to eat are always the best people. And dads who love to eat are always the best dads—they’re naturally nurturing and caring, always ready to share a meal, and love being around family. What’s the best gift to give them this Father’s Day? Food, of course.
Here’s a shortlist of some of the best DIY and ready-to-eat food kits currently available in the metro that you can send to all the special dads in your life this weekend. Nothing fancy, everything hearty—just the way dads like it.
1) La Cabrera Grill-Ready Steaks
La Cabrera’s line of grill-ready steaks are pre-grilled in their custom-built parilla that uses only wooden charcoal. Because it’s vacuum packed, the meat’s smoky flavor is locked in. Just follow the easy steps for preparation, either pan-fry or grill, and dad will have really good steak in a few minutes. For best results, make sure to buy the cuadril cut or coulotte (which also happens to be the favorite Argentinian steak cut of Pope Francis). This frozen steak is one of the best steaks I’ve cooked at home during the pandemic.
Please call +639 05290 0703, +639 67236 7940 or +632 8833 8946 from 8am to 5pm to order for delivery.
2) The Carnivore Grill Duo Kit by Gastronomade Manila
This gourmet ready-to-cook kit composed of Kurobota pork ribs paired with Sobrasada sauce and Wagyu Bavette or Flank steak with Chimichurri sauce comes with already precooked (sous vide) meats. Just quickly sear on a pan and serve with summer vegetables you can reheat in the microwave or boiling water for a minute. This will make a good addition to any Father’s Day celebration or any other special occasion.
Send a direct message to @gastronomademnl on IG to preorder a kit.
3) Deli by Chele’s New York Style Brisket Pastrami Sandwich Build box
This is hands down the best pastrami sandwich in town. The build-it-up box includes 150g New York Style Brisket Pastrami, 2 slices of Sourdough loaf bread, pickled cucumber, and mayo mustard—all the elements to complete one unforgettable sandwich. You have the option to buy extra pastrami too.

4) Cuapao by Sandra’s Specialties
Treat your dad to a box of ready-to-eat Cuapao good for sharing. It’s available in two box sizes (containing 12 or 6 cuapaos). A regular order contains 12 buns, a savory filling made of pork belly stewed for four hours, and garnishes (preserved mustard and sweetened pounded nuts).

5) Khao Soi Gai by Stock at Home PH
If your dad loves laksa, he’d love to meet this laksa-like dish. Khao Soi Gai is a deliciously fragrant curry-based noodle soup dish from Chiang Mai. Stock at home’s easy to assemble kit serves two and comes with your choice of chicken or beef. Try the chicken first.
