EatPlayLove Craft Café.

Of course the very second you set eyes on the name of this café you would no doubt have turned your thoughts to the Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestseller, Eat, Pray, Love (and/or Julia Roberts enjoying a good cup of gelato by the sidewalks of Italy).

EatPlayLove Craft Café had caught my attention while I was on my way to lunch one sunny day. From the outside, the interior arts & craft decoration had attracted my attention and I went back to check the place out for a quick dinner.

Upon entering I realised that the reason for that was the crayons and drawings and colours everywhere. A few kids were laughing in delight at the far corner of the café. Strange. No kids should feel so gleeful having to be bound on a chair for an hour just to eat. They like to multi-task (eg, eat while watching TV; eat while smashing food around just for fun). Using my talents for detection, it was found that this café is a paradise for parents who want to dine in peace with their princes and princesses in sight.

The Kids Craft Corner offers a free-flow use of the café’s craft materials at an hourly charge of $5 for first 2 hours on weekdays. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me. So now parents, you can dine in peace*. After surviving yet another daily affair of war that is to eat in peace, we accept belated thanks.

Green Curry Chicken :: $8

Green Curry Chicken ($8) :: My usually crummy stomach was feeling adventurous that night, so I had the Green Curry Chicken. Admittedly, while browsing through the menu, none of the dishes stood out. “Never judge a book by its movie.”  They say. With that in mind, I plunged my spoon into the dish before me now and was vindicated immediately. Even though I am not good at eating spicy stuff but I love my chilli. The curry was spicy enough for me to have a fair few cups of water (which you can help yourselves to at the counter) but not so much that I can’t enjoy the dish properly. Chicken was tender and served in fair amount. Good thing! Don’t you hate it when you order a chicken dish and you are served shredded or pathetically puny few pieces of it?

At its price, the quality of food surprised me pleasantly. I thought the curry was just, just a tad too salty but it seems to sit well with The Chosen Glutton. The Chosen One has the final say then!

Smores Waffle :: $7.50

Smores Waffle ($7.50) :: What I really enjoy about this is the very generous amount of slightly roasted marshmallows. Look at the photo, yes they are roasted! Though the waffles is a little hard (I personally prefer the fluffier kind) the marshmallows go very well with the waffle and ice-cream. Sinful!

Serving Thai-Western dishes at affordable prices, EatPlayLove is a good place for both a quick, no-fuss meal and to hangout. The only danger lies in the kids having too much fun audibly.
