Family Fun at Timbre @ Gillman Saturday Social BBQ

[Media Invite]

An open-air restaurant located at Gillman Barracks, you may think that Timbre @ Gillman is a place only for chilling with friends, listening to live music, enjoying some beer, and followed by popping into the art galleries nearby to appreciate the contemporary arts.

When we were invited to Timbre @ Gillman's very first Saturday Social BBQ on last Saturday, my impression of this restaurant was totally changed! It can be a family-friendly place well-liked by children!

Pei Pei and Hao Hao were excited to see some children playing in the field behind the restaurant. The thoughtful marketing manager offered the mosquito patches to the children, so that they will not be kissed by the mosquitoes in the field! (p.s. Adults, please bring along your own insect repellent / mosquito patches!)

While the children were busy playing and DaDi busy looking after them to make sure they didn't fight, I sat down and chose what to eat from the iPad menu.

Other than outdoor activities, there were indoor craft stations where the children could make their own felt masks, do colouring, origami and fabric painting.

That was not all. There was drumming workshop conducted by Junior Academy of Music (JAM). I think Hao Hao score 10 / 10 for the pose, but as for the rhythm... er....

Did I tell you that all those fringe activities are.... FREE?

See what we had ordered!

We ordered Timbre Wing and Fries (S$10++) and Battered Fish & Chips (S$10++) from the Kids' Menu, as well as Grilled Sirloin Steak with Mash Potato & Thyme Sauce (S$18++) and Baby Back Ribs with Mash Potato & Caramelised Onions (S$16++) from the BBQ Menu.

After Pei Pei and Hao Hao finished their dinner, they enjoyed themselves doing felt masks, while we sat back, relaxed, and enjoyed our food.

I like the chicken wings, they are very tasty! I also like the baby back ribs, they are well-marinated and the meat is very tender!

We really enjoyed ourselves very much!
