SANDBANK @ Parkland Green ECP

We are back at Parkland Green, the new family-friendly arena at East Coast park. I can tell this is going to be one of our favourite haunts. This time, we were invited by SANDBANK for a review of their second outlet with a twist. Their caption reads: EAT. DRINK. PLUNGE. And that's just what the kids did.

We told them they could swim in the pool after finishing their meal. That would no doubt get the kids to eat up quickly. One of the kids said, "But we can't swim after eating." Well technically, there's not much real 'swimming' to be done as the kid's pool is not very big. More for the kids to play around in.

Their menu is very comprehensive, with Bar Bites, Appetisers, Soups, Sandwiches & Pies, Pizzas, Pastas, Mains, Sides and even Dishes for Sharing. They also have a wide array of alcoholic beverages.

A typical favourite of my kids' is pizza and the Meat Lovers pizza didn't disappoint. It had chucks of stewed beef, bacon, mushroom, and topped with mozzarella cheese.
Meat Lovers $24
#5 automatically went for the fish & chips, and you have a choice of having it charcoal grilled or traditional beer battered. I was busy settling Kate in and didn't get a chance to try a bite before the whole thing was gone in a jiffy! I asked him if it was nice and he said "Very yummy".
Fish & Chips $23
Another staple dish when we eat out with the kids is truffle fries and we all agreed that this was one of the best we have ever tried. Two thumbs up!
Truffle Fries $8
One of their signature dishes is Beer Infused Roasted Whole Chicken so we had to give it a try. The whole chicken sat on a beer can in the oven in the open kitchen and the kids were tickled at the sight. Served with mixed mesclun salad. This is enough for 3-4 people to share if you are ordering other dishes.
Roasted Beer Chicken $32
If you have a picky child who can't find anything to eat, which is rather unlikely given their wide variety of offerings, he can design his own pizza. Choice of cheese (blue, feta, gruyere, mozzarella, etc), choice of topping (parma ham / pulled pork / grilled chicken etc), and choice of sauce (tomato / teriyaki / Pesto / even samba sauce!) Our kids designed their own pizza not because there was nothing else to eat but because it was fun! 
Design your own pizza $21
After they were done with their meal, they happily jumped into the pool and had a great time splashing about and playing with their pool toys and a little ball.

And the adults? We had a good time chilling and chatting, with full view of the sea. Doesn't get much better than this in Singapore.
Lime Margarita $16
After swimming, they were hungry again. We ordered the Fungi Pasta which I didn't manage to grab a photo of because it was gone in an instant! The kids said it was very yummy. Don't know if it was because they were hungry after playing in the pool but they polished everything up. Hmm, I should have asked if SANDBANK wanted more partners. What a winning concept. Eat, swim, dry off and repeat. We can easily spend the whole day here with a bunch of friends. There is also a plunge pool adjoining the kids' pool, but that is for aged 14 and above.
Eating again
If your kids are planning to swim, it would be good to ask for a table near the kid's pool so that you can keep an eye on them. Do remind them to be careful as the floor could get slippery with many kids swimming and inadvertently splashing water everywhere.

  1. That look rather good. Nice to know this place is getting better tenants. Last time went there it was rather dead or lame outlets. Will take a look

  2. Yes, this round it is much better. We were impressed with the line up of cafes and restaurants there.
