Summer Series: Zaffron Kitchen in Singapore

Our go-to meetup point in Singapore is Zaffron Kitchen, an Indian restaurant in Katong that has a kid’s play area that’s as fab as the menu.

We discovered it when we lived in Katong and chose it as the venue for our farewell party when we left Singapore.

Just about every time we go back to Sin City we drop by. The prices are reasonable, the food is delicious … but it’s the kid’s play area that brings us back time and time again.

The play area is designed for kids aged seven and under. There’s a little dollhouse and a play kitchen, all fenced off in the back corner of the restaurant.

Ordering at Zaffron Kitchen is also heaps of fun, on a cool iPad with a custom-designed menu app.

I didn’t manage to take any photos on our Singapore stopover this week. I was busy eating, talking and baby-chasing. We had six kids and five adults in our party and it was one of those wonderful nights when the conversation and the wine flows and the kids play happily *over there*.

Miss M’s verdict: fun!

My verdict: delicious!

Highlight for Miss M: the play area (her kid’s burger was “yukky”, apparently, even though she ate it all).

Highlight for Sunny (now 17 months): the play area.

My highlight: catching up with Singapore friends, the vegetarian tandoori platter.

Don’t miss: the garlic naan.

    I want to go for the food even though our kids are now grown up. The play kitchen would have been a hit with both our boy and girl. Sounds like a fun night. Do they sell the wine or is it a BYO?
