This eco-friendly mall has a hidden trove of family-friendly stores.
Young artists are encouraged to breathe life to their dreams at Global Art. A typical class (from $45 for 90 minutes) encourages children aged five and up to dabble in acrylic painting, handicrafts and clay-modelling. Those aged three and four can participate in drawing and colouring lessons ($37) in the 60-minute junior programme.
Pancakes are great dishes for tiny hands. Here, you can stick to the safe choice and pick the classic fluffy American pancakes (from $13), or be more adventurous and try the thin French crêpes (from $16) or the spongy Holland poffertjes (from $16). Either way, you’ll get your pancakes piping hot straight from the griddle, with a golden crunchy ring around the edge.
Chocolates are always a hit among children, but it’s not often you get to hit them back. Not so at this chain. The Cocoa Bolas ($6.90) are fist-sized balls that you’ll need a wooden mallet to crack into to reveal crispy, savoury pastry in the middle. It’s believed that this unique local dish from a small European village brings blessings – but we think it’s just heaps of fun.
We’ve got to admit, this is for the adults as much as it’s for the children –because made-to-order fried chicken wings (from $7.95) need no more explanation. Choose from 11 flavours, like the Louisiana rub and hickory-smoked barbecue, which are popular with the adults, or garlic Parmesan for the kids.
Shopping is one of Singapore's national pastimes and we've all spent time walking from mall to mall (sometimes to escape the sweltering heat). But do you know which one's the best for camping gear or the best for entertaining your kids? Here we round up the best shopping centres and more, all for your retail therapy. Shop hard.
