Moms know how tough it can be to eat out with little ones. Patch wants to help you know before you walk in the door if the Thai Pepper & Mikado Restaurants is a good place to eat with your children.
Is there a kids’ menu? No, but there are some kid-friendly items including chicken teriyaki, pad thai, spring rolls, edamame and fried rice. For young sushi novices I would suggest unagi (eel) and tamago (egg omelet), both fully cooked and on the sweeter side.
Are there healthy options on the kids’ meal? The edamame, salads and noodle soups are fairly healthy. The sushi and sashimi are very healthy but some kids might shy away from raw fish.
How does the restaurant deal with food allergies? Alert your server and they will be as accommodating as they can.
Is the restaurant so quiet that any childish outburst will draw attention or is there enough noise that a small cry is likely to go unnoticed? It depends on how full the dining room is. When I went in the other night it was fairly subdued, with only a few diners.
For the full review of Thai Pepper-Mikado Restaurants, check back with Ardmore-Merion-Wynnewood Patch on Thursday.
