I appreciate restaurants/establishments who goes out of the way to develop a healthy and yummy dish for children, it’s exciting to see something new from the usual nuggets and fries.
InterContinental Hotels and Resorts invited us to the launch of their brand new Planet Trekkers menu, designed especially for children. A menu inspired by popular worldwide cuisine’s, developed by award winning chef Theo Randall and child food expert Annabel Karmel MBE.
I’ve been (still) reading Annabel Karmel’s blog when I introduced solids to LittleMiss and for school snack ideas for LittleMan V. I was intrigued with what they have to offer, so off we went with the kids even though it was a weekday. I am very happy we did!
The buffet spread (especially the dessert table) was so inviting, both LittleOne’s (and I) had a hard time stopping ourselves from eating a plateful before other guests arrived.
Kids busied themselves with activity pages, face painting, and requesting balloon swords and animals. I ran after them.
James Koratzopoulos, Area General Manager InterContinental Hotels Group and Chef Steven Bishop, Executive Chef of InterContinental Hotels Group Dubai Festival City – introduced and explained Planet Trekkers menu to young guests.
Some of the dishes we tried were Scrummy Potato & Mash, Krispie Fish Fingers, Mini Beef Burgers, our favorites were Broccoli Sweet Corn Fritters, Smiley Tomato Soup and Wok & Roll Pad Thai.
Children and adults alike will surely enjoy each dish presented on the Planet Trekkers menu. I hope that more establishments will follow and offer healthier menu options for kids.
Big THANKS to InterContinental Hotels Group!
