Kids Wine & Dine

2 great spots for feeding the brood

When it comes to dining out with little ones, there’s lots to consider – from keeping them entertained to ensuring there’s food they’ll actually eat on the kids’ menu! Here are two options that are sure to keep both kids and parents happy.

Spiga

Head to Central’s LHT Tower and indulge in a taste of Italy in its purest form. Pasta aficionados will be salivating at Spiga’s fresh pasta, which is made each day in all its delicious forms. Yum! If you’re watching your carbs, don’t sweat it, Spiga is famed for its main dishes too, so you can get your traditional Italian fix. Meat dishes include roasted lamb shoulder, whole roasted chicken and slow cooked pork belly; and yes, there’s a free-flow package on the weekends for mums and dads who have earned a treat.

Why children will love it:

The kids’ menu offers everything from pizza and pasta to chicken and chips and more. Plus, there’s an option where they can access the dessert buffet too. Little diners are also treated to colouring books and crayons to keep them occupied before their food arrives.

Why parents will love it:

Spiga is the brainchild of Michelin-starred Chef Enrico Bartolini and is a worthy contemporary Italian experience with a decent wine list.

Bread Street Kitchen & Bar

This is Gordon Ramsay’s relaxed restaurant at The Galleria, up on The Peak. It’s the place to indulge in some British comfort food – and, of course, Gordon’s signature Beef Wellington is on offer. On weekends, Bread Street Kitchen & Bar serves brunch until 1pm; this includes a full English breakfast and a vegetarian option (“The Full Vegetarian”). In fact, the restaurant is a solid choice for flexitarian families, offering quite a few veg options.

Why children will love it:

The tram ride up to the Peak is pretty cool, no matter how old you are. The kids’ menu has all the usual suspects on it, so no one will get left out, but there are also great options on the main brunch menu, including pancakes and a bacon and egg roll. Don’t forget to take the kids for a quick whip around the Peak Circle Walk to burn off all that ice cream and sticky toffee pudding.

Why parents will love it:

This is a fantastic option for families, and especially for those with visitors to Hong Kong. The combination of riding the tram up The Peak, the impressive view from The Galleria (where the restaurant is located) and a menu that caters for everyone makes it a sure-fire winner with guests. For more info on both these restaurants, head to.
