Where to Eat in Singapore with Kids

Where to Eat in Singapore with Kids
A melting pot of sorts, Singapore cuisine is made up of a diverse influence from Malaysia, India, China, and of course, the Brits. There are so many delicious cuisines and dishes to try on your next family trip to Singapore. We know travelling with children can be challenging at times so here are a few of our tips on where to eat in Singapore when you have children, to make your life a little easier.

Hawker Markets
If you are after an authentic Singaporean experience, the Hawker markets are the place to go. This is where the street food carts gather and it will be sure to keep your children amused. The carts themselves were taken off the streets and put altogether to make the entire experience more hygienic.

Each stall is given a license and grading, with A being the best and D being the worst. You can reserve your seat in a hawker by 'chopping' - that is, throwing any object on the chair to claim it - we recommend using a packet of tissues!

This is the place where locals flock to for tasty, cheap and local food. Singapore is on the expensive side of Asian travel so this is a great place to eat in order of reducing your family's overall travel budget. Inexpensive, delicious, safe and entertaining! What more do you need?

Our favourites:
• Stay under the Stars - Boon Tat Street Night Market
• Maxwell Road Hawker Centre

Traditional Singapore Breakfast
On the edge of Chinatown and the Financial District, you can enjoy a colonial-influenced breakfast in one of the oldest cafes in Singapore, Ya Kun Kaya Toast.

It consists of runny eggs and kaya toast with a mug of strong traditional coffee (kopi) sweetened with condensed milk. This is a sweet breakfast sure to appeal to the kids' sweet tooth.

Kaya is a spread made from egg yolk, coconut milk, and brown sugar. The hot tip is to add some sweet soy sauce and pepper to your eggs, mix it together and dip your toast in.

Our favourites:
• Ya Kun Kaya Toast
• Tong Ah Eating House
• Killiney Kopitiam

Chilli Crab
We highly recommended chilli crab! It comes in a pot of thick, chilli sauce made from tomato puree, ketchup, sambal, and a variety of spices and sauces.

Grab your apron and gloves and get messy! The children are sure to love getting their hands dirty whilst eating their dinner!

Our favourites:
• Long Beach Seafood Restaurant: try the crab with some other delicious share plates of bamboo clam, beef in ginger and oyster sauce and fried rice.
• Newton Food Centre: known for their seafood and chilli crab and are a local's favourite too.
 
Zaffron Kitchen
Delicious fusion of Indian and Singaporean cuisine located on East Coast Road in the village of Katong. The restaurant is family friendly with a kid's menu and kids' corner including toys and movies!

Arteastiq Boutique Tea House
Arteastiq Boutique Tea House offers the ideal combination of tea appreciation, cakes and art jamming sessions. It's a perfect spot for the kids to get paint and get creative, so why not go somewhere that will entertain both the adults and the children?  Pop over to the adjacent art jamming studio and watch the kids let out all their energy on painting a masterpiece whilst sipping a cup of tea. You can join in too, don't let them have all the fun! 

Slappy Cakes
Kids love pancakes and making things so this is the perfect spot for children. Slappy Cakes is a one-of-a-kind dining experience where guests can make their own pancakes right at their table! We recommend the buttermilk pancakes with blueberries, pecan nuts, shredded coconut, chopped banana and maple syrup!

If you are not planning a family trip to Singapore soon you can still experience the taste sensations at home! Why not try our Singaporean Chicken Curry and make it with crab instead or to achieve authentic Singaporean rice make our Singaporean Chicken Rice spice paste and serve it with chilli and tamari sauce.
