NEW Ben­bino

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Eating Out -

Level G3, Pub­lika, Jalan So­laris Du­ta­mas 1, KL (03 6205 5317/ www.the­big­­bino). With stroller park­ing, an am­ple num­ber of high chairs and a cute ad­join­ing kids’ play­ground, Ben­bino is a wel­come ad­di­tion to KL’s se­lec­tion of fam­i­lyfriendly cafés. Look for the gi­ant yel­low gi­raffe and head up the spi­ral stair­case to this compact and comfy spot. If you can get the kids past the mag­i­cal dis­play of sweets, there’s a whole menu of meals cre­ated and por­tioned for small tum­mies. The menu is just what you’d ex­pect from The BIG Group and it in­cludes crowd pleasers like mac ‘n’ cheese, piz­zas, sal­ads and pas­tas. We were happy to see that many dishes sneak in healthy veg­eta­bles, such as the cau­li­flower tater tots and the cau­li­flower base margherita pizza. We even tried the build-your-own ta­cos and were sur­prised to find that the ac­com­pa­ny­ing chicken ten­ders were crumbed with quinoa, which gives a sat­is­fy­ing crunch. If you’re not into the tapas-style por­tions for your­self, some dishes are also avail­able in adult por­tions. But let’s get back to that cake counter. Ul­ti­mately, sweet tooths will be happy at Ben­bino: There’s a glit­ter­ing se­lec­tion of cakes and other treats to try. We had a creamy, thick lam­ing­ton milk­shake and can’t wait to re­turn for their brown­ies or s’mores cook­ies, or let’s face it, maybe both. The café is also a great choice for par­ties – whether it’s a kid’s birth­day party or a baby shower. Visit on the week­end for a fun dough­nut making ac­tiv­ity. Child-friendly. Kids’ menu. Pushchair-friendly. High chairs avail­able. Tue-Sun, 10am-9pm. $$
