Kate and her little foodies headed to Red Spice Road last Saturday to test out their NEW offering - Family Saturdays. I loved eating out at Red Spice Road when we lived in Melbourne, that was pre-kids so this new family friendly dining experience makes me definitely want to go next time we head to Melbourne. I can just see my husband and I enjoying the delicious food while the kids enjoy theirs and the entertainment. The best idea! Thanks Kate for the review and thank you Red Spice Road for inviting us.

If you're a parent and a foodie like me, you are always keen to find Melbourne cafés and restaurants where you can indulge your foodie longings while also catering for your little people. For over 10 years, Red Spice Road has been serving up outstanding Asian fusion and its newly launched Family Day Saturdays is already proving to be a strong contender as one of the city’s most family friendly dining experiences.
From the moment that you step inside Red Spice Road, you will feel transported away from Melbourne and into the heart of Asia. Whether you are seated at a long and striking banquet style table or in the gorgeous Lantern Room (featuring the largest lantern in Australia!) you will instantly be a part of the buzzing and energetic dining environment.
On Saturday’s, Red Spice Road is dedicated to children. While the bartender and I sat back and enjoyed a glass of wine and amazing dishes from the Lunch Express menu - including the signature chilli caramel-glazed pork belly, the poppets selected meals from their own special children’s menu before participating in colouring in, board games + face painting and balloon twisting from Jesstar Play Magik.
When you combine that with multiple highchairs, plenty of space for prams and baby change facilities, Red Spice Road has really thought of all the extra touches that make family outings that little bit more manageable. We cannot wait to go back!
Jess from Jesstar Play Magik was an ABSOLUTE HIT with the children; she was fun, playful and happily fulfilling ALL the face painting and balloon requests that the little ones had!
