Looking for somewhere for kids to eat free after a fun day of shopping and activities at Marina Bay Sands? RISE Restaurant rises to the challenge of being one of the most kid-friendly restos in town...
Singapore icon Marina Bay Sands has always been our one-stop shop for shopping, eating and fun. Boasting international designer labels for kids at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (and plenty for us parents, too), cool toy shops and a dizzying array of kid-friendly dining options and activities for kids (hello, ArtScience Museum!), MBS has it all. And after a day of exploring everything on offer, the kids are going to need some serious refuelling. RISE Restaurant is not only the perfect pit stop for hungry kids and parents, but diners age five and below eat for FREE – which certainly comes in handy after a splurge around the mall!
With its huge variety of delicious international and local food, we know that even the fussiest of kids will be easily pleased at this top-notch restaurant. And did you know RISE has just unveiled a beautiful new look and exciting menu? With an eco-friendly aesthetic inspired by nature and a menu that uses sustainably sourced ingredients, this fave restaurant has raised the bar even higher. We’re especially loving the new outdoor herb garden where you’re welcome to take a tour with the kiddos to discover over 50 varieties of plants and herbs: it’s never too early to teach the kids how to spot and use pandan leaves, lemongrass, basil and rosemary! We’re also loving the unique food theme for each night of the week (you’ll definitely want to come back for more), and the DIY soda station with a difference that the kids will go wild over (confession: we can’t wait to try it out too).
Here’s a taste of what’s happening at RISE Restaurant…
Savour Malay flavours on Mondays
Locally sourced and hormone-free foods are the name of the game and we can’t wait to tuck into the signature dish of the day: ayam percik in tangy peanut sauce. This is authentic Malay cuisine at its delicious best.
Dive into fresh and sustainable seafood on Tuesdays
Calling seafood fans of all ages to the table! Indulge in a huge selection of sustainable seafood at a fishy feast you’re not going to want to miss. Think freshly shucked oysters, crabs and prawns with a side order of the signature baked salt crust barramundi – hormone and antibiotic-free fish covered in a crust of salt, dill, lemon, fennel and coriander seeds: mouthwatering.
Tuck into comfort food from the USA on Wednesdays
We’re yet to find a kid who doesn’t love a big ol’ burger and fries! Add other American faves including BBQ ribs, milkshakes and a big slice of the seriously amazing cream cheese frosted banana cake, and you’ve got yourself the perfect family feast. And for a unique treat, check out the DIY soda station where you and the kids can mix your own drinks using fruit syrups and fresh herbs from the garden – how cool is that?
Get your family BBQ on with barbecue meats Thursday
Stack your plates with signature home smoked BBQ beef brisket (hormone-free Australian beef marinated with an aromatic spice rub and fresh herbs), then sink your teeth into well-marbled beef, juicy sausages and prawns, all cooked over an open fire in RISE’s backyard.
Feast on European classics on Fridays
We’re big fans of introducing the kiddos to international fare, and the spread of epicurean delights hailing from Europe are fantastic for little foodies. Pile your plates with French delights and some all-time Brit classics before moving on to a delectable banana crepe to end your European feast on a sweet note!
Singaporean favourites on Saturdays
Everything we adore about Singapore food comes together in this local spread. The star is undoubtedly the signature Singapore Chilli Crab, succulent crab drenched in RISE’s very own secret sweet and spicy sauce. Fussy kids? No prob: look out for reliable fave, Hainanese chicken rice. One word: shiok!
A Chinese banquet on Sundays
If you have a penchant for spicy and tangy dishes, drop by RISE on Sundays for a Chinese blowout. Chow down on comforting pumpkin rice, pick up slices of roast meats, and get your fill of Chinese favourites the kids are sure to love.
