For (self-proclaimed) bread connoisseurs like me, you really do not leave panamericana without an order of the sourdough, freshly baked and utterly satisfying. Then besides that, we continued our meal here with fun classic starters like Patatas Bravas and Charred Cauliflower Florets. The patatas bravas here are crispy potato chunks with a delicious aioli sauce and the cauliflower comes with a complementing purée and salsa.
For the mains both the well marinated and succulent Colombian chicken as well as the wood-fired chopped lamb were crowd pleasers.
The space is a 10/10 recommendation for a getaway like celebratory meal. Only caveat I’d recommend driving.

Quoting my brother’s words “Peking duck and Ee Fu noodles with duck are core memories”, to explain we had these every (school) “holidays” when my late aunt would indulge us with meals at the former mandarin orchard (MO) pine court and in more recent years, imperial treasure at paragon.
So naturally reading that executive chef Fung at Kai Garden was formerly from MO, I knew I had to come here with the maternal family. When our duck was served, I was skeptical about the variety of coloured wraps, and 5 different sauces. However that great familiar taste of crispy duck skin wrapped with fresh spring onions and cucumber was in every bite.
The lean duck meat in the braised Ee Fu noodles was completely welcomed by the palate and rekindled so many positive memories for the mind. I also thought “this taste like home” and “I miss 姨姨”.

Other than the Peking Duck and noodles, what impressed me was the impeccable standard of all the other dishes we ordered - double boiled soups, pan-seared wagyu beef cubes, 小白菜 with gingko and beancurd skin. These were chinese dishes that made me proud to be chinese.
Again another after-thought - Kai Garden should be on the list of places chinese young adults bring their elderly folks with demanding palates to.

Laughed away when my mum and godma were perplexed by the saltiness and peculiarity of the spice and flavors that yardbird’s signature wings were seasoned with. I concluded - must be the SEA Chinese tastebuds used to home cooked food.

Overall, Yardbird has a reasonable lunch break set for $36++ which includes a sandwich/salad, a side and drink. Out of all we order I enjoyed the buttermilk biscuits which were dense and lovely with the side of jam.
While the burger and fish sandwich were generously portions, the former fared better as the fish was overdone. We’d also recommend sharing amongst females, 4 of us effectively shared 3 sets and were filled.

Growing up my dad loved bring the family to upscale restaurants for special occasions, now an adult it is natural we do the same on Father’s Day. The selected place for the night got everyone’s approval which made me satisfied.
To share we had the wagyu cote de boeuf and this was a meat feast fit for a king or was it Dad? Medium cut with enough tendon, fat and red protein. The French bean side was slightly too tough with an old skin, but thankfully we ordered the beetroot tartare which was a nice interlude to the 1.1kg star of the night.
For my main I had the quinoa falafel which was a great take on the usual fried chickpea & beans “meatballs”. I also adored the bed of hummus together with cabbage and pomegranate.

Artemis is now on my “go to places for occasions” list.

I’ve only frequent Plank and Mr Kneady in the East, but recently I discovered tougher competition for sourdough pizzas.
I chose this place to gather with (ex-) colleagues and the pizzas here were off the charts paired with an assortment of natural wines to select from. The crust came crisp with air pockets, and a testament to how good it was is the fact you see polished plates without any leftover crusts.
I’d also recommend the chicken karaage to feel fully satiated. If you thought the usual small morsels of fried chicken were what you’d be getting; you be surprised to find 4 large chicken thighs in a fried sourdough batter with delicious kimchi mayo. Pleasant or not, you decide but I was sold and thought that this is exactly what I need to let my fried chicken loving mother try the next time I will visit Drunken Farmers.

Call me a sucker for food fads but this vegan friendly, gluten free friendly was top on my wish list. Of course the knowledge that the bulk of the menu was on their natural wine listing was not the officially reason I had to be here 😉 (or was it)

Fast forward and I find myself here on a Thursday night having a flight of natural wines (a rose and 2 whites), accompanying the chef’s gluten free menu. A first proper taste of Pão de Queijo and I’m sold, there’s nothing not to love of these baked cheese pocket buns, and the sauces here are almost always delicious.

For the mains we had the Marinated Chicken Thigh Dosa with fermented chayote, cashew cultured cream; and Fermented Black Bean Falafel with carrot & lentil hummus, smoked baba ganoush. I adored how there were hints of Asian touches to the modern European- Brazilian dishes, for example chayote and what tasted like chicken rice chilli (!!) with the dosa. When you see the Brazilian born, paris trained chef dish out her food creations, to cater for a usually western audience that avoids gluten for health reasons (coeliac is the term I was told); and this in Singapore you know this ain’t any other restaurant.
