On one of the evenings when hubby was working late, I decided to bring the two boys out for dinner at Sembawang Shopping Centre (SSC).
MF loves the playground on level 3, so we had dinner at Wan Chai Hong Kong Tea Room which was located next to the playground. Although Wan Chai Hong Kong Tea Room was not one of those eateries with play area, it was as good as one due to its location right next to SSC’s playground. I let the boys go out to play while waiting for the food and called them back when the food arrived.
There were tables beside the see-through glass panels which offered a clear view of the playground, but all except one of them were two-seaters which weren’t good for families. So I settled for a bigger table on the next row where I could still see the playground.
They also had one long table which was outdoors, which I think would be perfect for an extended family with many kids.
Word of caution: Although the playground is right next to the cafe, it is important to still always keep an eye on your kids at all times because there are two exits for the playground and one of them is totally NOT visible from the cafe.
The food here was very reasonably priced, especially since all prices were NETT. We ordered a beef hor fun and a dumpling noodle and the total price was $15.
Do note that they only accept CASH payment.
SSC was not near any MRT station, so we took the free shuttle service from Yishun MRT to get there. There are also shuttle buses from Sembawang MRT. The shuttle buses are not very frequent, so do check the timetable here.
