A little off the bill can make a big difference…

The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s popular ‘kids eat free’ deal is now back, and it’s set to stay all the way to December 30.

A significant bite of the mall’s wide range of eateries has signed up to the promotion, which offers a free kid’s meal with every adult’s meal purchased.

Participating restaurants and cafes include P.F. Chang’s, La Brioche, Blaze Pizza, Taqado, Nolu’s, Eat Greek, Bombay Canteen, Royal Orchid, Sushi Art, Tortilla, Biryani Pot, LPM Restaurant & Bar, Raising Cane’s and Charley’s.

That covers pretty much everything from fine-dining to those unshakable fast food cravings. There’s Mexican food, Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Thai, French, Japanese and some good old deep-fried Americana.

Certain restaurants are offering a separate deal where they dish up a free dessert with each main dish ordered. You can get your gratuit sweets at Wonderbee, Joga, Loca, Shake Shack, Pinkberry, Coffee Hat and Maison Samira Maatouk.

All treat, no tricks

This weekend, October 30 to 31, for the occasion of Halloween, the mall will be treating kids in two further ways.

First, there’s a little something for every mini cosplay enthusiast in fancy dress that passes by the guest services desk.

And there’s the big digital scavenger hunt — children will have to follow clues to track down the location of six spooky characters. After completing the hunt, they’ll be able to redeem a prize from a contactless vending machine.

More details and hints to follow shortly on The Galleria’s social media channels.

The Galleria, Al Maryah Island, open Sat to Wed 10am to 10pm, Thu & Fri 10am to midnight. Tel: (02) 493 7400, @thegalleriauae
