(SPOT.ph) June means a lot of things—and among the month’s most notable events is Father’s Day, a.k.a. the day when we shine the spotlight on our paternal figures that have helped us become who we are today. As fulfilling as being a parent can be, it’s definitely no walk in a park. We can show love and appreciation any day of the year, sure, but on Father's Day, it's our chance to take it a step up for our dads, daddies, papas, tatay, pops—so if you’re looking for hearty options that’ll fill up his stomach as much as his heart, we’ve got you covered.
