Curry Croquetas.

They may look pretty innocuous, but they aren't just any ordinary croquettes – in place of creamy bechamel is a rich Japanese curry that almost FLOWS when you cut or bite into each orb of crispy breadcrumbs. I love strong flavours and this one more than exceeds expectations.

For Skewers, Sharing Plates and Sake

This casual izakaya spot on Tras Street is the perfect place to wind down with friends (who love eating as much as you do). Sit near the grill to watch the chefs work their magic or opt for the large table if you're in a large group. From the skewers section, go for familiar items like Tsukune ($4.50), the melt-in-your-mouth Pork Belly ($4), and our favourite Nagaimo Mentai ($8 for three pieces) — yam topped with mentai mayo and torched for a smokey finish. Adventurous eaters should have the Heart ($4), the Gizzard ($4) and the unbelievably tasty Tail ($4) glazed in a garlic shoyu sauce. Birders also offers small plates for sharing like Liver Mousse ($16), a bourbon-infused chicken liver pate that comes with deep-fried mantou and house made yuzu marmalade on the side, and chicken-stuffed Curry Crouqetas ($10 for three). End with a Takikomi Chazuke ($10), a humble grilled onigiri with a side of dashi broth. Drinks-wise, get the Cup Sake (prices from $15), which allows you to try different sakes in small quantities (180ml). Just ask the friendly staff for recommendations!

Liver Mousse $16

I never pass up on liver pâté if I see it on the menu and Birders doesn't disappoint with their velvety smooth version spiked with bourbon. No funk, only rich and luxurious flavour that begs to be spread over an insufficient number of deep-fried mantou. The tangy yuzu marmalade is there to provide respite from the heavier tasting components if you need it, but I find myself spooning the pâté straight out of the pot and into the mouth once the buns run out.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @birderssg for the great hospitality!

Taste: 3.5/5

New Yakitori & Sake Bar at Tras Street

Newly opened at 55 Tras Street is Birders; a Yakitori and Sake Bar that serves up adventurous sticks like Chicken Tail, Chicken Heart and Chicken Gizzard as well as the safer crowd pleasers such as Tsukune and Pork Belly. My preferred dishes include the savoury and flavourful Pork Belly, thickly cut yam with an adequately portioned drizzle of Mentaiko for the Nagaimo Mentai, the Big Black Balls that a battered, deep-fried balls with Japanese curry and minced chicken fillings inside and Liver Mousse which surprisingly wasn't overpoweringly salty and creamy without carrying a stench; comes with sweet fried mantou buns and Yuzu jam to smother with. Pair the Yakitori sticks up with one of the three Dons available; all of which thoughtfully sized so one can get the best out of both worlds without stuffing themselves silly with both Don and Yakitori — the Oyako Don was all comforting while the Takikomu Chazuke (grilled multi grain rice ball; think of it as a grilled Onigiri less the seaweed doused in dashi broth); a light compliment to the otherwise meaty meal. Alternatively, the saucey Yakitori Bowl is always there if one ever needs more sticks with rice too.

Thanks Birders for hosting the Burpple Tastemaker Eatup last night and also for generously stuffing us with their menu as well as Burpple for the invite!

Tsukune $4.5

The multitude of choices can be overwhelming at yakitori joints, but when in doubt, you know you can always fall back on the reliably tasty tsukune - ground chicken meatballs served with a sweetish tare sauce and the currently en vogue pairing of onsen egg.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @birderssg for the great hospitality!

Taste: 3.5/5

Curry Croquetas $10

If you can resist these crisp, panko-crumbed balls filled with a mild and moreish chicken mince curry, then you'd be missing out on one of the better dishes over at Birders, a newly opened yakitori & sake bar by the team behind The Great Escape bar over at Golden Mile.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @birderssg for the great hospitality!

Hot off the grill on Tras Street is Birders - a yakitori & sake bar with a menu conceptualized by Chef Makoti Deguchi, formerly from one Michelin starred Sola in Paris

Pick from slightly more than a dozen skewers - most around $4 - including bonjiri(chicken tail) glazed in garlic shoyu, runny quail eggs and piman nikuzume(meat stuffed bell peppers), amongst others. My yakitori of choice would have to be the tsukune and bonjiri, though most items could do with a touch more seasoning.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @birderssg for the great hospitality!

Need a much longer weekend.

Reminiscing the yakitori feast @birderssg last Wednesday's night. New concept brought to you by celebrity Adam Chen who also owns a few other eateries. These sticks pair well with the sakes, I know I'll definitely be back again.
