MELT THE WORLD CAFÉ
Indulge in an extensive buffet of fresh seafood, international and Asian favourites, as well as food cooked a la minute at live cooking stations. Doesn’t sound very kid friendly? Wait a moment; this is just for the adults. For the kids, the restaurant has a special programme in The Little Fan Room for those aged three to twelve, with their own special buffet spread that consists of mini beef burgers, nuggets, finger sandwiches, ice cream, and even a candy floss machine. Keeping them entertained are cartoon screenings, drawing and colouring materials, and storytelling sessions. Parents don’t even have to physically be there to watch over their kids; as cafe staff will be on hand to supervise.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
This outlet is a lot bigger than the one located near the Singapore Arts Museum and it’s tucked away in Botanical Gardens. This is a good place to enjoy a hearty brunch with your family after a stroll around the park. In one little corner of the restaurant, you can find colouring papers and crayons for doodling, to keep the little restless ones occupied while waiting for their food to be served. For the more active, there is also a playground. We recommend that adults try their Grilled Barramundi Fillet, which is served with creamy mashed potato and Ratatouille with Basil Almond and Pesto sauce ($20).
