We’re loving these awesome kids menus and dining options for little ones in Singapore. Even the fussiest eaters won’t be able to resist!
Heading out for a family meal with your picky eaters in tow can be a nightmare at times. Junior may throw a tantrum because nothing on the menu suits his palate. And then there’s also the fear of leaving copious amounts of food untouched. What a waste! The solution? Go to restaurants and cafes that cater to little ones with kids’ menus that actually taste as good as they look! Here are 13 that we like (and no, McDonalds is not on the list!).
1. Cafe Melba
We adore Cafe Melba for being super child-friendly. Their kids’ menu caters to little ones of all ages. What’s on the menu? French toast sticks, mini blueberry pancakes and mashed banana and yogurt — items which we think will be a hit with hungry little people. And if that’s not enough, Cafe Melba also has a bouncy castle that’s open from 3pm onwards, and a kids corner for art & craft which opens from 5pm to 8pm. On Mondays, kids eat for free with a main meal purchased by mum or dad.

Little fans of noodles, rejoice! It’s all about tucking into oodles of noodles at Chow Fun Bar & Restaurant.

A mini bowl of noodles is just $2.90! Flavours which kids are sure to love include Fried Mac & Cheese, Wild Mushroom & Truffle, and Wagyu Bolognese!
