Cibo’s iconic pasta dishes come in kid-sized portions at Cibo Bimbi, conveniently located in the midst of the chaos of the kids section of Power Plant Mall. Try the DIY pizza, or simply order the cinque formaggi and let your little ones get busy with the color-in placemats.
The kids’ menu has kid-portioned versions of your favorite Chili’s meals, like the chicken crispers, burger bites and spaghetti. Meals come with a free drink, and you can even opt to go for the Kid Combo (chicken crispers with slightly sweeter batter and spaghetti) paired with an I-Scream Float!
Equipped with a lengthy and diverse menu, your picky eater is sure to find something that tickles their fancy at Ihop. If that isn’t enough, they have funny faced kid-sized pancakes as well as other breakfast favorites in kids portions.
Pro-tip: Get them the Jr. Chicken & Waffles for a hearty meal with healthy mixed fruit dish for dessert to balance it out!
5. Project Pie
While the portions at Project Pie might seem meager for a full-sized adult, a single pizza is perfect for a kid and generous for a toddler. Let your child’s imagination run wild with all the flavor combinations they can think of and jump at the chance to get a few extra vegetables in them. There’s also nothing more fun than getting to eat with your hands!
