Many of the 9 Japanese restaurants at itadakimasu by PARCO offer a kid’s menu for children aged 12 years old and below. Some of our fave Japanese restaurants here include: Yakiniku Heijoen, which specialises in grilled Japanese Kuroge Wagyu beef and offers exceptional value on buffet meals for kids under 12. Here Sassy Mama readers can also get a complimentary mini-snack for kids. Menya Kokoro, Japan’s most popular and largest restaurant Mazesoba which serves up “mixing ramen”, a broth-less ramen that locals have dubbed “Japanese Bak Chor Mee”. Kids can eat half price ramen set here for $4.90. Yayoi is where to head for tasty healthy “Teishouku” set meals with nutritious 16 grain rice, plus a miso soup, main dish, side dish and other appetisers. Kids get a free vanilla ice-cream with every kid’s meal purchase! Meanwhile Numazu Uogashizushi is one of the few sushi restaurants with limited auction rights in the Numazu Fish Market in Shizuoka Prefecture, and is known for its nigiri sushi served with generous cuts of sashimi. Here kids will be happy with their new Kids Meal at $5.80 which comes with a juice and a scoop of ice cream. Plus you can’t leave out soft serve store Emma where kids will get a mini serve with a minimum spend at Menya Kokoro. Kids love the “gravity defying” soft serve made using premium Japanese milk for a rich creamy ice cream. You can turn these soft serves upside down and the ice cream won’t slip or fall – isn’t that the ultimate toddler dessert?
By the way, “Itadakimasu!” (pronounced itada-kee-mas) translates roughly to “Let’s eat!” or “Bon appétit”. Get the kiddos to learn this important Japanese word to say before you tuck into your family meal – we think it’s a fun way to introduce kids to the Japanese language.
