Happy New Year to everyone out there. I hope that you have an awesome countdown to year 2016 last night. I shall begin my first blog post of the year 2016 with a kids friendly restaurant post. What topic connects all Singaporeans together? Food..Glorious food!
Today, we headed to Quentin’s the Eurasian Restaurant for lunch. Yeah, you heard me right… an Eurasian restaurant!
The restaurant is helmed by Chef Quentin Pereria. His belief is that dining at the restaurant should be communal so all food servings are for 2-3 people. All the food is freshly cooked and not pre-heated.
I was very curious about this place as I have never eaten Eurasian food before. When we got there about 11.45am, there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The restaurant had about 15-16 tables (mixture of 4 and 6 sitters). The restaurant was divided into 2 sections, the aircon inside area as well as the alfresco area. The alfresco area had huge industrial fans circulating. It did not feel warm at all. However, the best thing about this restaurant is there was a decent sized play room for kids to enjoy while the parents grab their food. Nowadays, as parents, we are always on the hunt for kids friendly eateries. Say goodbye to squeezy non air con places without entertainment for kids.
Below are some pictures of the play room.
My kid did not want to go back after his lunch and we stayed on at least about 30 mins before we had to get him out of the room.
I have to apologize that I only took one picture of the food and that was the complimentary Keropok. The Eurasian food that they serve is very similar to Peranakan food. Eurasian is like a fusion between East and West. We ordered a Pot roast beef and baked mixed vegetables in cream sauce whereas my kid had a kids meal of chicken stew soup with rice. There are 4 choices of kids meal to choose from
- Fish and Chips
- Chicken Stew with Rice
- Chicken Tenders
- Sausage and Chicken Nuggets
Each kids meal comes with a cup of apple juice and a scoop of ice-cream.
If you are a fan of Peranakan food like me, you will definetly like the food over here. Click here for the menu.
Quentin also does catering for your corporate events. If you are looking for a different sort of food instead of the usual Neo Garden Catering/Stamford Catering, you can check out their outdoor catering menu here. They also do customized cakes for all occasions.
There is also a Eurasian heritage tour if you are interested to sign up. It is a guided tour on the heritage galleries, sampling of the eurasian sugee cake and a viewing of a traditional Jinkli Nona folk dance. Check out their website for more information.
