with a tranquil ambience that makes
you feel so relaxing and comfortable.

Being a mum to an active 3-year-old daughter is tough enough, but even more troublesome when dining out with her. Whenever I take her out to a café or restaurant, she will start messing around — tapping loudly with chopsticks or a spoon, spilling her drinks, just about anything outrageous, just name it, she’s got it all — but why? Simply because she doesn’t like how the food tasted and she feels boring with nothing else to play with, but cutlery. Most parents would have faced the same situation like I did; perhaps the only difference is the degree of creativity of how they amuse themselves, while the parents are being tested for their patience. If you are one of them, fret no more!

Harmony For Mums And Kids…

As much as you would like to enjoy your meal peacefully, your children would want to enjoy their meal while having fun too! This is where Caterpillar comes in to view. Caterpillar is a children-friendly café located on the second floor of a three-storey shop-house in Sri Hartamas. It has a tranquil ambience, filled by soft-lightings and walls shaded with light, milky yellow, pink, and a light touch of sky blue that makes you feel so relaxing and comfortable. Also, there’s a spacious activity studio adjoining to the café itself. Apart from the serene atmosphere, the three housewives, who co- own Caterpillar — Ann, Judy and Sania — are so friendly and hospitable making it

Caterpillar offers various facilities and activities that suit children of all ages — from babies to toddlers, even for teenagers. Wait! That’s not all. There are also interesting activities for the mums who wish to get physical while having fun, besides chomping down nutritious, yummy foods and beverages.

Yummy Health-Conscious Food

First of all, let me highlight to you that all the foods in Caterpillar are free from MSG (monosodium glutamate), preservatives, and pre-mixes, with LESS sugar and LESS salt. No canned beverages or soft drinks are served here, and the cold drinks, though chilled, are without ice (no more tantrums from your child for not getting any ice in his drink, as you can just tell him that there are NONE!) and all the fruit juices are freshly squeezed. All at a reasonable and affordable price! Health-conscious is the word that I would use to describe the foods and beverages there.

in the foods and beverages are from natural sources, and are specially selected. I personally enjoyed the Goulash most; a platter filled with tenderly cooked beef marinated in home- made sauce, decorated with mash potatoes with a unique dip of Rødkal (in Danish) or red cabbage, only the top quality beef with tender textures are chosen for this dish. Even the red cabbage is manually chopped (not blended with machines) to give it an extra authentic touch.

Parents often face difficulties in choosing the right food for their children — bearing in mind the nutrition as well as the less spicy factors — from the menu. Caterpillar has the solution for you. There are a variety of kids specialties offered here — they not only taste good but creatively named too. For instance, Batman Burgers (I bet it catches your child’s attention) are homemade burgers with fresh shitake mushrooms. The key is in the ratio of meat used to the binding factor, in this case, the bread. Too much bread would make the burgers lose their meaty flavour. Although cost is also a factor, Caterpillar believes in giving their customers quality food, thus, not compromising on taste.

Another kid specialty that I would recommend is the Chicken Run Nuggets, escorted by fresh carrot and peas. These home-made nuggets are crunchy on the outside, but soft and juicy inside. The chicken is minced manually and the nuggets are hand-breaded to ensure their quality meet their customer’s expectation. If your child doesn’t like chicken — fine, how about Lilo & Stitch Fish Finger? Dory fish fillet, double-coated with batter made from a simple mix of bread crumbs and flour to ensure the fish remains soft and juicy inside, while the exterior remains crispy — that’s Lilo & Stitch Fish Finger.

The Madagascar Spaghetti is another mouth-watering dish. You can also opt for the regular Spaghetti Bolognese or the vegetarian version, Spaghetti with Creamy Tomato Sauce. Both sauces are stewed for at least one and a half hours to enhance its taste, and then served with freshly grated Parmesan Cheese. For children who prefer something light, perhaps during tea time or so, Swim with the Sharks will be the perfect choice. It is made from fresh vegetables and not from any pre-mixes available in the market. To ensure

freshness of the roll, the oven is specially fired up for each and every roll that accompanies each soup order.

Caterpillar offers a variety of custom-made activities for mums and their children of all ages. Now mummies can burn away extra calories in Fitness for Moms and dance classes such as the belly dancing, Sizzle and Burn, Flamenco and Rhythm Tap, without worrying about their children, as their children can have fun with arts and crafts, dancing, learning languages, and reading, even learn to bake cookies! Mums or dads can also accompany their children in Baby Fun class (for all babies) where they sing nursery rhymes, dance with easy and repetitive movements. While older toddlers can sing and dance in the Orff Schulwerk of similar features to Baby Fun, divided into two age groups; those aged three to four in one group, and four to six in another. Caterpillar also offers a wide range of music (guitar and percussion) and dance lessons (Funky Hip Hop) for children aged six to17.
