Get the family together and invite your friends as you check out these family-friendly menus across the city.

family friendly brunches eat emmer

Emmer Pizzeria & Cafe

Take a break from shopping at Pacific Place Mall and head to the 4th floor to try out one of the newest pizza places in town. The name Emmer comes from an old, organic grain that is blended with rye and Italian flour to make the base for these pizzas. The restaurant claims it makes the pizza healthier (lower in gluten and higher in nutrients like antioxidants, vitamins and minerals) and much tastier. We’ve yet to try it out but because it comes from the experienced team behind the much-loved Beef & Liberty, we’re quite excited about it! It’s open for breakfast, lunch (menu changes weekly based on seasonal and fresh ingredients) and dinner every day, and brunch at the weekends.

Emmer Pizzeria & Cafe, Shop no. 407, Level 4, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong, 2780 1110, [email protected], www.emmerpizza.com

Sip Song

Is your family fond of Thai food? Then Sip Song at Repulse Bay is worth considering, especially at this time of the year. There are enough soups and options with a little heat in them to warm your brood up. There’s even an indoor play area for the kids if they don’t feel like venturing out to the beach or using the climbing frames and see-saws outside. Over Valentine’s weekend (Friday, 14 to Sunday, 16 February), Sip Song is offering a special “Ferrero Rocher”, which is a sharing dessert for the whole family.

La Vache!

This January, La Vache is bringing a little French tradition to Hong Kong. To celebrate Épiphany (the day the Three Kings visited the baby Jesus), the restaurant will be serving a festive Galette des Rois ($118 per slice) at both La Vache! locations. This traditional dessert is made of sweet puff pastry encasing a frangipani filling that hides a fève (a little lucky charm). Whoever finds the fève is crowned King for the Day, and also wins lunch for two at La Vache! in Tsim Sha Tsui. If you go dining as a family, the tradition is that the youngest of the party hides under the table as the dessert is served and they are allowed to choose who receives which slice. Your kids will love to participate and play a role in winning you a complimentary meal. Bonne chance!

MEATS

Looking for an extended brunch offering over the CNY holiday? MEATS has a new brunch menu ($248 per person) available from 12pm to 5:30pm on weekends and public holidays. We like the sound of the Porchetta Bun that’s crunchy and crackly on the outside, with tender and juicy meat inside, or the brunch classic, Chicken Avocado Toast and the Vegetarian Burger for the non-meat eaters. Plus MEATS’ UFC or Ultimate Fried Chicken ($90) can be ordered a la carte. It’s fried in Doritos flakes, so is sure to get the vote of the kids at the table. There’s also a very reasonable children’s menu for $78 per child.

It’s always fun to eat with the family at Yum Cha because their cute and delicious dim sum is sure to please the kids. In celebration of Chinese New Year, the restaurant is offering (at all its four locations) fun interpretations of traditional dishes, all created to bring good luck, health and prosperity to the table.

You can also choose to experience the Lo Hei Prosperity Toss dishes as a family.

Motorino

Sundays are meant to be chilled out days, so on Sunday, 12 January, Motorino in Wan Chai is offering an afternoon neighbourhood “block party” serving free-flow pizze and Peroni (soft drinks for the kids) for $50! Enjoy some downtime with friends and family as your children get to make their own pizze, the Neapolitan way. Book your session here.

The Pizza Project

Have kids who’d like to have pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Take them to The Pizza Project, the latest offering by the Pirata Group of restaurants that’s set to open with a flamboyant street party on Tuesday, 14 January (join in from 7pm to 9pm – the first 500 pizzas are on the house!). This restaurant is being helmed by the team behind Pici and will feature a simple one-page menu of pizzas (with all the right toppings!), freshly-prepared starters and delicious desserts.
