Here is a recommendation for a hearty family feast – Morganfield’s restaurants. They currently have two outlets in Singapore, one in Suntec City and the other one in Star Vista.
My family and I have dined at Morganfield’s several times, particularly when we want to indulge in sinfully large portions of well-cooked barbecue food. The American diner pride itself for soul food like it’s Sticky Bones ribs – cooked to chewy perfection.
Earlier in May, Morganfield’s introduced a new item on their menu – the Southern Family Platter (S$$108.90++), consisting of family favourites such as creamy Crayfish Mac & cream, Southern-style Crispy Chicken Drumsticks with Honey Butter sauce, and a full slab or Morganfield’s signature Sticky Bones ribs:
The price may seem hefty, however, the portion is more than enough to share for a family of 4-6 comfortably, depending on whether your family members are big eaters. For my family, we barely finished the items with 4 adults and 1 kid.
Here’s the full list of items in the Southern Family Platter:
A full slab of our signature Sticky Bones slathered in your choice of sauce.
- Southern-style Crispy Chicken Drumsticks
- Luscious Honey Butter drizzling sauce
- Creamy Crayfish Mac & Cheese
- Fresh Mesclun Salad, with Lemon Olive Oil dressing
- Char-Grilled Roasted Golden Sweet Potatoes
- Country-Style Tangy Purple slaw
- Freshly Baked Corn Bread
- Mexican-Style Grilled Corn with Parmesan & Paprika
If you have the Entertainer app like I do, you can enjoy 1-for-1 main menu item at Morganfield’s, making it superb value-for-money to dine there.
The Entertainer Singapore app retails at the usual price of $85 but get $10 off with the promo code “2016SGBLOG“. Read this post for more details on how to get the app.
What makes Morganfield’s perfect for family style dining is that a lot of the menu items are designed for sharing. You won’t have headache playing host, asking each individual what to order. Instead, just order a few sharing items and everyone can dig in. Yes, it can get a little messy, but that’s the fun of it. It makes dining interactive and you will be communicating more with your fellow diners to pass the dishes around, rather than playing on each of your own tech devices.
For family with young kids, Morganfield’s is kids-friendly, with a kids menu as well as kids utensils as well as some material to keep kids entertained during their meals:
They also have an awesome ‘Kids Eat for Free’ promotion (more details below).
