Junior and you will jump for joy upon arriving at Bricks ‘n’ Cubes. A paradise for Lego lovers, your little one will definitely be kept occupied and you will also be able to enjoy your meal without any major disruptions.
Though the food here is decent, it’s nothing to shout about.
If you just need a nibble, try 4 Musketeers, $12.90 — four potato skins filled with spicy cheese and different toppings like shrimp and beef. The menu features the usual suspects of pizzas and pastas. For a safe option, go for the Hawaiian pizza, $10.90/6-inch, which is topped with turkey ham, mozzarella and pineapple, or the carbonara pasta, $10.90.
But if you’re game to try something different — and heat-packing — the scrummy gnocchi, $12.90, has a strong Asian-inspired ginger taste, or order the ultra-spicy “Fire rice” with dory fish, $10.90, that’s guaranteed to raise your temperature a couple of degrees.
Leave some room for dessert, too, as this eatery is known for its waffles, $6.90 each, and ice cream. For an added treat, top your waffle with a scoop of gelato in flavours like strawberry yoghurt and dark chocolate, from $4.50 a scoop.
TOT-O-METER: Junior will surely make a beeline for the colourful play zone that boasts individual Lego play areas for at least 10 kids. You’ll love that this area is near the dining space, so you can keep an eye on junior while you dine. If you fret that you’ll have to tame a tantrum after tearing your tot away from his “masterpiece” when the food arrives, no worries. Each table is fitted with an iPad that’s loaded with plenty of Lego-themed games and apps — all the better to keep your munchkin entertained while he chows down on his Captain Bricks Crispy Chicken, $11.90.
