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!
This is a joint that’s decorated like a cafe, serving up fried chicken between sandwiches, with rice or on its own along with some nibbles, sweet treats, traditional kopi and house-made tea.
The Signature Chicken Rice Box (S$9.90) consists of edamame, sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, sous vide egg and chunks of boneless fried chicken, all of which sit atop their house special rice.
Take your pick of the tasty rice which comes in a variety of flavours such as Cilantro Lime, Tomato Oregano, Original or Garlic Butter—the Garlic Butter Rice is pretty hot among patrons.
Before the bird hits the fryer, it lies submerged in a brine for a considerable amount of time, allowing it to stay super moist and succulent even after being deep-fried.
All these talks about fried chicken have honestly got our appetites fired up. Whether its expertly cooked fried chicken or a decent cuppa to get you through the day, you just know that Birdfolks will get it all sorted out for you.
