The casual eatery serves up an array of wings, pasta, burgers, and BBQ large plates. Think pork ribs, grilled steaks, and beef briskets. There’s also a dynamic list of cocktails, beer, and wine if you need a proper palate cleanser after the greasy feast.

Come by with your kid aged 12 and below from 12pm-5pm on weekends and they’ll be able to nab a free kids’ meal (worth $15.95) when an accompanying adult orders a main course from the a la carte menu.

Crystal Jade operates hundreds of dim sum restaurants throughout the city. However, it’s the free kids’ meal at Crystal Jade Hong Kong Kitchen that brings a different energy to this outlet.

At this Cantonese hotspot, it’s all about the juicy xiao long bao, the hearty congee, and the springy noodles. But that doesn’t mean you should skip the roasted meat and wok-fried dishes.

Swing by with your little person between Monday and Friday after 6pm, and they’ll get a free kid’s set meal. However, the offer is only valid for children aged 6 years old and below.

Tucked away in the West Coast, Lazy Lizard offers an explosion of American flavours on one of the most extensive menus we’ve seen so far.

Here, you’ll find everything from sashimi, sushi rolls, udon, donburi, seared seafood, and grilled meat – the list goes on. An adult buffet starts at $48 which, IMO, is a steal. As for the kids, those younger than 6 years old get to dine for free all day every day.

9. Hanjip


For bulgogi & japchae sets


kids eat for free - HanjipImage credit: Eatbook

In a city stacked with hundreds of Korean meat meccas, Hanjip stands out for several reasons. While the aged Wagyu and prime beef melt in your mouth, the tender Kurobuta pork has just the right amount of marbling. Then there’s the spicy chicken with cheese ($32) and an assortment of Korean fried chicken wings ($25)  that make it hard to resist.

Of course, you can’t pass on the set meals for kids either. Available for free on Saturdays and Sundays with every paying adult, kids under 12 can choose between either bulgogi, japchae, and fried rice, as well as heaps of side dishes like fried chicken wings and sausages.

So, we’ve been saving up for a trip to Mexico. In the off chance that that doesn’t happen, we at least hope to visit El Mero Mero at Chijmes, where we can eat tacos, drink frozen Margaritas, and pretend we’re in Cancun.

11. Genius Central


For Margherita pizza & pasta


This might come as a surprise, but healthy eating doesn’t usually involve a lackluster salad or a boiled chicken breast. Sometimes, it comes in the form of lean proteins, good fats, and solid fiber. And that’s what’s on the menu at Genius Central.

kids eat for free - genius central
Image credit: Eatbook

While the majority of the bites, bowls, and mains are gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, they still pack some serious flavours. But if you aren’t ready to jump into the deep end of the healthy eating pool, feel free to order the popcorn chicken.

For those planning a healthy-ish family brunch on Sunday, know that the kids will be able to nab a free meal if they’re below 12 years old. The free food of choice rotates on the regular, and for now it’s a yummy margherita pizza, available for 1 redemption per table and with a minimum purchase of 2 main courses.

For French buffet with crepes & mushroom pasta


If you’re one to pamper your kids’ palates, French cuisine is a good place to start. You can indulge in that at La Brasserie, a restaurant within The Fullerton Bay Hotel that offers up delectable lunch and dinner sets.

Serving up tender steaks and juicy ribs, Morganfield’s is home to traditional US-style BBQ. Most loved is their Signature Spare Ribs (from $33.90), which is smoked over hickory wood before being served with a generous amount of sweet, tangy BBQ sauce. Be sure to also check out their 300gm Angus Beef Rib-eye ($42.90). The beef is so tender it melts in your mouth as you bite into it.

Full list of Morganfield’s outlets


15. Paulaner Brauhaus


For a Bavarian weekend brunch


With a dimly-lit interior, we can be quick to assume that Paulaner Brauhaus is no place for kids. On the contrary, it’s one of the most kid-friendly bars in Singapore. Serving up delectable German food, the restaurant is also known for its juicy Crispy Half Pork Knuckle ($20), Beef Stroganoff Style ($22), as well as its weekend brunch.

Another popular choice from the menu is Pork Schnitzel and Fries ($25.90).

Not only do kids under the age of 5 eat for free, but they also have the opportunity to get artsy at designated stations for colouring and mask making. It’s also pretty interesting to know that Paulaner Brauhaus is Singapore’s first authentic German microbrewery. So, if you’re looking for a new watering hole whilst catering to your kid’s needs, this place kills two birds with one stone.
