Nestled within two conservation shophouses along heritage Amoy Street and the busy Central Business District, Birds of a Feather offers a respite for the busy working professionals and residents in the area.
The concept takes inspiration from Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan, said to be one of the most laid back cities, with parks, cafes & tea houses on every city street corner, and where history meets the modern world in perfect harmony.
Known to be the home of the 3,000-year old cultural relic, the golden sunbird, found in the Jinsha ruins in Chengdu, Birds of a Feather takes on a deeper meaning to reference the four sunbirds that protect the sun to ensure endless cycle of life.
Birds of a Feather offers a contemporary Western cuisine with a pronounced Sichuan influence. Look forward to lighter options such as Roasted Chicken & Avocado Salad with Szechuan pepper, Charcoal Roasted Romaine Lettuce with Fried Tofu Cheese Ball and Sesame dressing.
Or opt for heartier options like Tofu Burger with Mapo Meat Sauce (interpreted from Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐), an Oriental bolagnaise of angel hair pasta, pork ragout, onsen tamago (interpreted from Cha Jiang Mian 炸酱面), or Birds Signature Burger of charcoal grilled beef patty, foie gras, cheddar, carmelised onion, with a chilli soy tapenade inspired by Szechuan Dou Pan Jiang 豆瓣酱! Food at Birds of A Feather is refreshing, vibrant and delicious.
