Not only pretty to look at; the meringue atop BOF's special Feather’s coffee served more than an embellishment as it nicely sweetens the aromatic coffee with each sip you take.
A medley of chorizo sausage, Camembert cheese, potato and 2 molten core baked eggs amidst the greens & chilli crisp in Birds' version of Shashouka, is indeed looking like another BoaF signature in the making. Love their rich but moist tomato base with a familiar tinch of Sichuan peppercorn, which seems to work out so well on all the items in their menu. Would have been perfect if they serve it with some toasted sour dough, which I did order separately to wipe clean the skillet. Yums.
Nothing escapes the claws of Sichuan Peppercorn and Mala chili oil at BoaF, not even the innocent sounding open face sandwich in their newly launched weekend brunch menu. The roasted chicken is mixed into the rich avocado to give it a nice creamy texture. You almost thought their is no spice in this dish, but the nice hint of the peppercorn must have been infused into the mixture - knowingly or unknowingly. The nice greens and interesting dried chilli, renkon (lotus root) crisp are recurring features in their dishes but always aptly complimenting the main course. Aji-egg was a nice touch to this new dish which I am sure would be yet another signature here at Birds.
Find the chicken ($16) was aptly named because it was, quite literally, an exercise in sourcing out those morsels of chicken bathed in a spicy tongue numbing sauce.
The chicken avocado salad ($20) sounded promising but the marriage of the two ingredients didn't do it for me. Or perhaps it was the blandness of those chicken strips buried in the avocado half. Quite the difference from the former.
That said, they do have a lovely lovely space and it must look gorgeous in the daytime too.
Essentially the spiritual sequel to their popular Find the Chicken in the Chillies. Underneath the river shrimp's gently crispy exterior lies a Sensitive New Age Guy-esque masculine softness, and the "mala" heat mileage for the dish varies - the naked river shrimp alone reveals just a feathery tease of sting, whilst a careless spoonful may yield a significantly more insistent numbing and sensuous plumping of the lips. 3.8/5

This dish is one of the many items on the restaurant's new menu which launches 6 April, and other friends joining the avian party include the Pig Ear Mosaic, "Xiang Su" Duck, the black-and-white black sesame dessert MonoTone, and a naughty deep-fried shrimp sequel to the popular Find The Chicken In the Chillies. Spanking new weekend brunch offerings such as the eggtastic Bird Skillet and Big Bird First (big breakfast? geddit? - Joke Tuition Teacher) will also be introduced the same week.
Loving this 香酥Duck done 2 ways, confit and braised, with a traditional spicy Tian Mian duck jus. More on stories! Coming to your table from 6 April! Lots of 😍😍😍for this place! Also expect a weekend brunch menu too!
The nondescript entrance that seemed to almost magically appear only when we doubled back along the row of shops a second time lured us into its dark interior. Decked out with lush foliage within and a tastefully eclectic collection of furniture, we were off to a good start. Most of us ended up choosing the Oriental Bolognese ($20) which seemed to be one of the top items on the menu. It was a tasty combination of angel hair pasta and pork ragout, seasoned with Sakura ebi and topped with a wobbly onsen tamago to mix in. Unfortunately, the wilted kale which had an awfully plastic-y artificial taste spoilt the otherwise harmonious blend of flavours and left an unpleasant taste in our mouths. #burpple
🎂🍰 May my wish for both of u come true soon k! 😉😂😜
Have a terrific Thursday my dears 💋
Fried Calamari with Yuzu Tartar Sauce (SGD$19.00) - the tasty, fleshy calamari was crispy on the exterior and laced with spiciness. When dipped into the zesty tartar sauce, it was incredibly tantalizing.
Would definitely return to this place
TL: spicy crispy trotters - absolutely loved this dish, it was worth the calories & indulgence (as advised by the servers, go easy on the spices as they can get too savoury)
BL: the feature cup - good coffee with a sweet soufflé
BR: Grilled cheese panini with braised pull pork #throwbackbrunch #burrple
Featuring their Spicy Oriental Oriental Bolognaise ($22) and Find The Chicken in The Chiliies ($16) which is 辣子雞，which i also ate at Chong Qing Grilled Fish yesterday. Is it just me or i feel that angel hair is like atas mee kia?! 😂😂😂
Sichuan-inspired Western cuisine - this was very very good. Our whole party adored the Oriental Bolognese, 10/10 would recommend!! As you can see from the pic, I was too excited to eat this that I couldn't even take a proper still photo of this. The vibes and space are very on point as well, this is really one of the more outstanding establishments I've visited in awhile 🤤
Neighbours to Ding Dong and Bochinche, Birds of a Feather is the perfect date spot for those working in the CBD. The snazzy place on Amoy Street hits the sweet spot in our books — memorable Sichuan-inspired dishes, excellent cocktails and an overall relaxed vibe in a gorgeous setting. Splurge on the spicy Find the Chicken in the Chillies ($16), a cheeky appetizer that features little morsels of chicken fried hidden in an abundance of dried chillies. Otherwise, its best to put your money towards the Spicy Oriental Bolognaise ($22), their rendition of zha jiang mian made with angel hair pasta, pork ragout, kale and sakura ebi — incredibly tasty. End the meal with their deceivingly humble-looking Glutinous Rice Cake ($12), where flat chewy rice cakes are topped with soy powder and Okinawan black sugar. Pro tip: Squeeze in a little lunch date here — get the Spicy Oriental Bolognaise along with the lunch exclusive of Grilled Cheese Panini ($20) with braised pork belly and pickled cabbage.
Avg Price: $60 per couple

A generous dusting of soy powder and lush black sugar syrup.-
This dish stole the show! The simple unassuming dish was nostalgic and heartwarming.
A great end to a fiery meal.
