Birdfolks is an American fried chicken and kopi-centric eatery and the latest food establishment to open up at NEWest along West Coast Drive. It exudes a rather cafe-like vibe but their menu offerings speak of something entirely different.
Fusing the qualities of good old American fried chicken along with their little twist of Asian influence in the form of a dark, robust coffeeshop kopi, this quirky eatery aims to start a new ball rolling which breathes nostalgia in a whole different light.
Fried chicken paired with homegrown coffeeshop kopi? That’s genius!

Fat Belly is a new speakeasy-style steakhouse in Singapore that shares the same space with its sister brand and ice cream joint, Sugarhaus, at Serene Centre. It only opens in the evening, occupying the counter seats at the back of the ice cream parlour.
This 10-seater steakhouse is helmed by chef-owner Stanley Seow, who specialises in alternative, less well-known cuts of beef such as the Flat Iron, which is essentially a cut taken from the shoulder of a cow—generally much less tender than a tenderloin or even a ribeye but let us leave it to the expert to prove us otherwise.
With the opening of Hillview Community Club, residents and those who are working near the area now have more dining options apart from restaurants and cafes at HillV2. One cafe that stood out among the rest of the casual dining spots there is Kohi-Ya.
Opened by the team behind Ninepress who also runs Kyu Coffee Bar at Prudential Tower, Kohi-Ya offers Asian cuisine that comes with a Creative twist. Think udon served with Mentaiko sauce, wagyu beef balls doused in Japanese curry and more.
The gorgeous interior is also an added bonus, so remember to drop by this new cafe in the West of Singapore for a weekend brunch with your family or significant other! READ ON
