Hello Singapore, it has been a while!
I was talking to one of my friend earlier this day, and just realized that we have known each other for 10 years already. Gosh, how time flies. I still vividly remember how i moved to Singapore early July, 10 years ago. Back then, i did not know much things. University life was pretty busy with projects as well. So all i can eat was foodcourt foods like chicken rice, mixed rice, mee pok, and fast foods like McD and KFC. HAHA.
Thankfully, God gave me great friends who i can rely on during my period in Singapore, which some of them are still good friends of mine up till today, who love to bring me to new places to try new things. ❤
and one of new places they brought me recently was BIRDS OF A FEATHER in Amoy Street. A nice cafe which has a very cozy feeling. The ray of natural sunlights and the wooden contemporary design made it more relaxing. The rather big size is a plus point as well, makes it easier for us who often come a big group.
When we talk about cafe, food is another important thing to consider other than the great ambiance. Birds Of A Feather is quite a rather unique eating experience, where they marriage chinese delicacy with italian and western dishes. and amazingly it taste great! even though some of them created a shock unfamiliar taste at first. Haha
Affogato (SGD 7.50)
Cappucino (SGD 6)
A Bowl of Healthiness (SGD 20)
Love the aesthetic serving of this little cute bowl. Housemade Granola with assorted fruits and berries with greek yoghurt. Perfect way to start my meal. Haha. Even though the berries are all a little bit too sour, but i still enjoyed it though. Well, maybe because i always love a granola bowl. It is just a little too pricy for a small bowl. But, worth the try.
Oriental Bolognaise (SGD 20)
My Favorite amongst other dishes. al dente Angel hair, with pork ragout in sichuan style, with onsen tomago, wilted kale and sakura ebi. Was weird at first, but loving this all the way. it’s like chinese style aglio olio. The tingling taste is not bothering at all, and it smell good too. And ohh, the onsen egg really enhanced the flavour of the pasta.
Crispy Gyoza with Truffle Soy Vinaigrette (SGD 16)
A quite crispy outer, yet tender meat on the inside. My second favorite item after the angel hair. I can eat a lot of these too! haha. The dipping is soo good as well, never know that vinegar will goes well with truffle oil. It makes a rather sour taste and savoury at the same time. Perfect for sharing.
Avocado with Shredded Roasted Chicken with Sichuan Pepper Dressing (SGD 23)
This is a the most unique meal that we tasted on that day. Avocado toast with sichuan dressings. Haha.. It created another shock for the taste buds, but it was pretty okay after a few bites. Really a whole new experience of having an avocado toast.
Hong Shao Beef Ragout Orrechiate (SGD 26)
I think this is the only modern chinese dish that goes normal with sichuan style. Haha. A nice tender beef with parmesan foam, spinach, black fungus, pine nut and egg confit.
Overall it was a nice experience hanging out in this small rather big cafe. *What an oxymoron. Haha. Well, it looks small from the outside, since the front look is literally that small, and i did not realized that i already passed it by, till i need to call my friend and ask her to go out. Haha. But it turns out to be a great cozy place inside with awesome service as well.
*And oh, you need to request for tap water if you prefer not to have still / sparkling. Cause they will automatically serve you with the fancy mineral waters when you asked for only water. (well, at least that’s what happened to us)
