Birds Of A Feather @ Amoy Street

Had a late lunch at Birds of a Feather recently, on a Sat noon. It is a cosy place, with nice decor and friendly ambiance. Suitable for peeps with laptop who wants to work while sipping a cocktail or two, and to enjoy Sichuan flavoured snacks or creatively delicious fusion Chinese meal.

Loved the menu with the printed drawings instead of actual photos of the food.


cosy and classy

I was intrigued by the Sichuan Oxtail Soup with Chinese Yam Noodles. Like, what does Sichuan Oxtail Soup would taste like? And what in the world is a Chinese Yam Noodles? So many questions and I eagerly await for the dish to arrive.

Kris ordered the "Red Birdie Noodle" that comes with "Bang-Bang Chicken" and an onsen egg. I know nothing about "Bang-Bang Chicken" but since it is a red, it must be pretty spicy!

How about a glass of rose to go along with the food? Why, yes please.

With drinks in-hand, we needed some appetisers. We ordered the "Charcoal Grilled Pork Bits" as I have not tried this before. Thank you Chef Eugene for sending us the complimentary plate of "Find the Chicken in the Chillies"! Now we have double dose of meats!

The Charcoal Grilled Pork Bits comprises of grilled pork belly slices, baby potatoes and sweet potatoes are smothered with a layer of those Chinese skewer magic spices similar to its sister restaurant at 51Soho. Loved everything on this plate!

It wasn't that hard to find the chicken amongst the chillies because there were some chunky bits in it. Yummy! The mix had peppercorn, leek bits and dried chillies deep fried till slightly crisp. Don't leave the leek bits behind if you enjoy bursts of sweetness amongst the fiery spicy taste.

For Sichuan Oxtail Soup, I was pleasantly surprised by its visual. The inclusion of arlette pastry added to the aesthetics. Tasty too with its buttery flaky texture that's fragrant with spring onion. The first spoonful of soup revealed a broth that was beefy, with hints of herbs and not overly rich. Very enjoyable. The Chinese Yam Noodles turned out to be flat sheets of al-dente chewy noodles that had similar texture to QQ rice cake. Very good. Oh, be careful when you dip into the chilli dip provided... so spicy!

can't get enough of this noodles!

The oxtail itself was meaty and superbly tender while maintaining its flavours. Thumbs up for this!

you have become a favourite of mine

The Red Birdie Noodle is a dry version with spicy mala sauce and served with condiments that were meant to be tossed into the noodles for a good mix while the Bang-Bang Chicken was to be eaten separately.

The Red Birdie Noodle was strongly flavoured and goes well with a drink. The "Bang-Bang Chicken" had a nice sweet sauce (was it 沙茶酱?) to it and the chicken breast meat likeable (this is coming from one that doesn't like chicken breast usually).

Compliments to Chef Eugene and I've enjoyed the meal at Birds of a Feather. Weekend lunch date with Kris and Tiara.

Suggest to order 3 appetisers with a shared main (for lighter eaters), or 1 appetiser with 2 shared mains and a dessert for 2 pax. Expect to spend about $45 to $55 per pax for a meal here, with a drink.
