5. Namoo On The Park

Fancy Korean food but worried the little one(s) may not be able to take the heat? Namoo On The Park, a dessert cafe and bistro at Publika, serves up kids' meals to please fans of the cuisine and young newcomers. They've got shrimp fried rice, mini pizza toasts, bulgogi beef rice balls and more for small children. Best part is, you can share your bingsoo with them at the end of the meal. 

6. Yellow Brick Road

Dorothy never had pancakes like these in Oz. From savoury to sweet creations, such as the takoyaki pancakes and the Mexican-inspire salsa pancakes pictured above, Yellow Brick Road at Plaza Batai has a first floor that's kid-friendly and sweet treats that are everyone-friendly. 

7. Ice Cream Bar

Made for adults and kids (more for adults really), this alcoholic ice cream bar from the folks at Inside Scoop has a decadent selection of sinful treats for the connoisseur of spirits and frozen treats. With that being said, the ice creamery also has a selection of non-alcoholic kid-friendly flavours and a selection of craft beers for parents to enjoy during a hot afternoon. Perfect.

8. Benbino

It's a Ben's that's made for kids! Small children can indulge in dishes like mushroom soup, macaroni and cheese, chicken tenders and much more, while adults, affectionately labelled as 'big kids', also have a decent selection of dishes to choose from. The stars here are the kids of course. Find out more at their official website.
