Ben­bino

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Clean eating for kids -

The yel­low gi­raffe in Pub­lika is an ob­vi­ous in­di­ca­tor that you’re not far from Ben­bino. A play on the Ital­ian word for ‘baby’ ( bam­bino), Ben­bino is a wel­come ad­di­tion to The BIG Group’s ven­tures, es­pe­cially for par­ents with young kids. We were de­lighted to dis­cover the stroller park­ing, which elim­i­nates the has­sle of ma­noeu­ver­ing into the restau­rant, and the kids (par­ents too!) will be very happy to spend time in the sunny yel­low play area.

In ad­di­tion to all-day break­fast of­fer­ings like our favourite Goji Berry Bread, a nat­u­rally sweet and fill­ing house-baked loaf, and the Su­per Chia Seed Pud­ding with co­conut milk, gra­nola and fruit, Ben­bino also serves pas­tas, sand­wiches and fill­ing mains.

There is am­ple choice for healthy eat­ing, an ob­vi­ous be­ing one of Ben­bino’s in­trigu­ing sal­ads – the Mr Fla-Mango Salad has plenty of ap­peal­ing in­gre­di­ents like goji berries, wal­nuts, diced mango and poached chicken dressed to im­press with pesto mayo. Even the most sin­ful op­tions on Ben­bino’s menu are mildly mod­i­fied to cater to your well­be­ing. Crowned with creamy peaks of mashed pota­toes, the meat­loaf cup­cakes were chock full of juli­enned car­rots. Our only griev­ance was the café’s playlist, which was nowhere as var­ied as its menu. Par­ents who plan on chill­ing out at Ben­bino may have to lis­ten to the same song played on loop for hours. Level G3, Pub­lika, Jalan So­laris Du­ta­mas 1, KL (03 6207 8557/www. the­big­group.co/ben­bino). Tue-Sun, 10am-9pm. Halal.
