If I had my way, Sundays will be designated as 'I-still-wanna-snuggle-in-my-bed' days. Unfortunately, my 3 monkies do not share the same affinity with the bed like I do... and so come every Sunday mornings, they are always up bright and early, and dragging me out of bed as well. Wail.
But if there is any consolation, it will have to be a hearty breakfast with the entire family on a lazy Sunday morning. Or make that brunch by the time all of us wash up, get dressed and scoot out of the house. And as luck would have it, we were invited to a brunch session at District 10 at UE Square.
Serving modern European cuisine, quality food and affordable drinks, District 10 serves up a mean Weekend Brunch menu every Saturday and Sunday between 11am to 3pm. But if you ask me, Sundays would probably be the best time to descend onto this eatery. Why so? Simply because of this.
A Bouncy Castle specially inflated for the kids every Sunday! Any wonder that the monkies fell in the love with the place immediately?
The bouncy castle is strategically placed right beside the outdoor dining area, so parents are able to sneak a peek at what their young-lings are up to via a see-through netting at the side of the bouncy castle.
In fact, the monkies were busy having so much fun that the wifey and I were only too happy to let them continue while we spend some quiet (and sane) moments together. Oh, and enjoy the yummy food too.
We were served the Hoegaarden Battered Fish & Chips ($22), Eggs Florentine ($15) and and Pandan-Coconut Pancakes with Gula Melaka Syrup ($8). Everything tasted decent enough - nothing too out of this world but delicious enough to warrant second helpings, especially when we were able to savour our food while the madhouse was contained in the bouncy castle few metres away.
Of course, if your child gets tired of the tumble-and-rumble sort of fun, there are always colouring activities to keep them stay seated in their chairs as well.
But I'm guessing they would rather remain in the bouncy castle if it were up to them. Just like my 3 monkies.
Do check out my list of kids-friendly restaurants should you be in search for more eateries where kids can have their own while you eat in peace. Thanks once again to District 10 for hosting us!
