Finding a place to eat that will please daddy, mommy, and the kids is never an easy task. You can probably already imagine the tantrums children throw when they see a kids menu they don’t like. Daddy and mommy love their steak, while kids love their cheesy goodness.

Thankfully, Kuala Lumpur is filled with food and beverage establishments that understands the struggles of every parent. These are 12 places to eat with a good kids menu that makes every breakfast, lunch, and dinner so much more heartwarming for family quality time. Indeed, sharing is caring.

Marmalade café caters to everyone – from daddy, mommy to their children. Not every child is up for getting their hands on greens, but Marmalade has no issue with that. The café, which was awarded the best healthy eating restaurant by Time Out KL in 2010 and 2011, allows families to enjoy a comforting, wholesome meal with a great kids menu to boot.

You don’t have to worry about them getting bored because you can lure them to the specially designed children’s area while waiting for your food to arrive. Kids will love their grilled cheese toasties soldiers which can be dunked in a roasted tomato dip while sipping on their fresh chocolate milk.

If you are craving for a salmon mentaiko sushi (which happens all time!), but your kid is not that fond of sushi, Sakae Sushi is your go-to place. As you dip your fresh sushi with a dollop of creamy mentaiko jeweled with Ebiko, the children can enjoy their own specially presented kid’s meals.

Their “fire engine” kiddy set comes with a tender, sweet chicken teriyaki, crispy mini prawn tempura, smiley potato fries, assorted fresh vegetables, steamed rice and a bottle of nutritious Vitagen. The balanced menu is served in a special fire engine bento box which entices the kids even more.

The space is built for everyone who’s not only young physically but also young at heart. I guess this should apply to everyone then! While the coffee is for the real adults, the playground is for kids, and the bricks are for all! This is an amazing space for family time.

You can even play, rent and buy lego here which delivers a playful learning experience. When the kids are tired, they can have a treat of dark cherry crumbles with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It’s a quick escape to a Lego world in the midst of the busy city life.
