This month, ditch the cooking and explore these entertaining dining adventures where delicious food, complete with tempting kids’ menus, meets wholesome activities. From safari camp vibes to Swiss butchery bistro, these kid-friendly restaurants promise a memorable experience for the whole family.

1. The Pasta Project

The Pasta Project

Why not plan a fun day out for the whole family at SAFRA Punggol? Begin your adventure at Splash @ Kidz Amaze, Singapore’s largest indoor water playground. With towering slides, interactive play structures, and a dedicated toddler zone, your little ones will be splashing and giggling for hours.

When it’s time to refuel, head over to The Pasta Project, a family-friendly restaurant that just opened its doors in February. You can build your own pasta or sando creation, starting at just $7.50! Choose your base, pile on the toppings, and personalise your meal further with a sprinkle of pine nuts, pesto, or parmesan cheese. Can’t decide? Then go for classics such as Grandma’s Project Meatball Pasta – kids love this, and house signatures like the tongue-tingling Old Sichuan Mala Chicken Pasta.

2. Ten+

Ten+

Escape the city and head to Ten+, the first safari-themed bistro in Singapore. This unique camp-style setting offers a taste of the wild, boasting both laidback al fresco seating and outdoor tents under twinkling fairy lights. Located at Sungei Tengah, it puts you minutes away from Qian Hu Fish Farm, if you’d like to include some longkang fishing with the kids into your itinerary.

Fuel up your safari with the extensive menu, featuring all-day delights like Gyudon Beef Bowl, Prawn Paste Chicken Burger and the signature Baked Snapper with Sambal Aioli. Craving something heartier? Dinner features barbecue specialities from Grilled Angus Ribeye Steak to XL Squid Skewers. Little explorers won’t be left out either – there’s a special kids’ meal and adorable animal cakepops for dessert.

This June, SAFRA members also enjoy a Parents’ Day Dinner Set Meal (for 2-3) at $49.90; more info at safra.sg/promotions/ten-ParentsDay2024

Hard Rock Cafe

Calling all music and football fans! Immerse in the electrifying world of music at the iconic Hard Rock Cafe Singapore. Step off the bustling streets and into the legendary retro atmosphere. Then warm up to rollin’ good times with American favourites like burgers and ribs, alongside Singaporean-inspired dishes like the Chilli Crab Dip.

Little footie fans 12 years and under can kick off a magical mealtime with the new Messi Kids Menu, featuring options like Messi’s X Burger, Golden Chicken Sandwich and Mac & Cheese. Each meal comes with a choice of a side and beverage, as well as a complimentary mini golden soccer ball, collectible poster, activity sheet and stickers!

4. Wheeler’s Estate

Wheeler’s Estate

Take off to the lush greenery of Seletar Aerospace Park, where Wheeler’s Estate offers a welcome respite from the city’s buzz. The preserved black-and-white colonial building, which sits upon a sprawling 2-acre site, houses a charming restaurant with al fresco seating. Savour an Aussie-style weekend brunch or dinner of pizzas, steaks and juicy burgers. There are dedicated kids’ menus too.

Afterwards, let the kids loose on the green lawn while you sip on craft beers and listen to live music. But the adventure doesn’t stop there, because an aviation-themed playground is right next door. Its colourful propeller structure, air traffic control tower slides and helipad merry-go-round promise to ignite little imaginations. Have fun spotting real airplanes taking off from nearby Seletar Airport too.

5. Little Island Brewing Co @ Gillman Barracks

Little Island Brewing Co @ Gillman Barracks

Housed in a historic warehouse, Little Island Brewing Co’s new Gillman Barracks location boasts Singapore’s first vintage vinyl bar. While audiophiles lose themselves in retro grooves and craft beers, telephones and other old-school memorabilia will surely amuse the kids. Need to burn off some energy? Hop on a mini Vespa (another first in Singapore!), dive into the bouncy castle, or head outdoors to the old-school playground.

Peckish? Regulars swear by the Nasi Kerabu with Rendang Daging and Slow Roasted Pork Belly with the crunchiest crackling. Top it all off with the signature wood-fired Vinyl Charcoal Pizzas, with punny names inspired by famous songs such as “Play That Fungi Muzik” and Don’t Go Bacon My Heart”. There’s also a Mac & Cheese and Fish & Chips that are just for kids. By the way, the outdoor dining area is pet-friendly, so you can bring the fur-kids too.
