Bird Bird

Address: 18 Ann Siang Road

This Thai-inspired eatery celebrates the humble chicken in some of the most creative ways, and, yes, it has a mean rendition of deep-fried chicken - a Southern-style Thai fried chicken with green chilli nam jim (spicy dipping sauce), to be precise. And if you like, you can finish the meal with the Bird Bird Sundae, comprising coconut ice cream topped with palm sugar caramel, corn and fried chicken skins.

This unique dining concept features Japanese grilled dishes, a cocktail bar, fishball noodles, and kopi and kaya. And while it remains a hot-spot in the evenings for artisanal meats on sticks, its lunchtime offerings have also grown to offer fried chicken drumlets, which comes with its signature donburi (rice bowl) sets. These are based on a Nagoya-style recipe and the house-made sauce it is served with features a unique amalgamation of shoyu, sugar, mirin, sake and sesame.
