So to make eating out with your children a little more enjoyable, here’s a list of restaurants in Singapore with “kids eat free” promos.

Expect stir-fried yam ($14.90), crispy oysters ($17.90), sweet and sour pork ($14.90), and their signature – the fried Heng Hwa bee hoon ($10.90). It’ll be tough to not order them all. If you see a row of strollers parked outside Putien on any given day, it’s most likely because children get to eat for free here as long as they can fit in a highchair. No pressure.

In a city stacked with hundreds of Korean meat meccas, Hanjip stands out for several reasons.

16. Genius Central – Kids below 12 eat for free every Sunday


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.

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.
