Sharing our love for American fried chicken, in our very own interpretation, with a little twist of Asian influences. When we say East meets West, we meant Traditional Kopi served with our favourite fried stuffs. Nanyang, and fried chicken, our expression of a new nostalgia.

It is within NEWest which was very quiet on a weekday afternoon when I visited. They mainly offer fried chicken-anything, including waffles, burger and bowls, though they serve salmon and the likes too. The fried chicken bowl [$10] had a very cripy chicken skin with the meat quite tender. The rest was quite normal – normal (a bit under watered?) sushi rice, runny egg with ikura, side salad and sesame sauce which was quite diluted. The chicken was, rightly, the highlight of the meal if you are into this way of serving. The alcohols they serve is from local-owned, and aptly named, Sunbird Brewing Company. The witbier [$8 a bottle] was recommended by the staff as a crowd favorite. It is light, other than that just like your typical witbier.

I enjoy their fried chicken most, its well Marinated, juicy, tender inside while outside crisp.

They're known for American fried chicken cooked with Asian herbs. These are boneless. They're certainly pros, producing crispy exteriors capturing all the juice inside. Taste-wise it's more mixed. The herbs, while interesting, imo didn't unite the dish. Served with rather meh oregano fries.

some of the best fried chicken I've ever eaten in my life! 🍗 Get in on this while you can as today (23/6) is's last day of operations at NEWest 😭 .

Absolutely gutted to hear that Birdfolks is singing their swan song after serving up what is considered to be the best fried chicken in the West - and some even say the whole of Singapore! - for almost 2 years.

American-inspired and Asian-spiced, the chook at BirdFolks boasts succulent meat in a thick crunchy caramelised crust with a rich infusion of local herbs and spices. The flavour lingers on both the batter and the meat within, and every bite releases the oozing juices 💦 from the chicken which has been brined overnight for 12 hours to lock in all the umami flavours. Has this got ya drooling yet? 🤤 .

Besides having their awesomely delicious chicken on its own, you can choose to have it in their salads 🥗 , burgers 🍔 and sandwiches 🥪 , and even pair it with their specialty rice 🍚 ,'s interpretation of 'chicken rice', where you can take your pick from good ol' Original, zesty Cilantro Lime, tangy Tomato Oregano or the savoury Garlic Butter rice.

So gonna miss the Southern grub with an Asian twist at BirdFolks! 😢 But wait, there's some good news!!! Like a phoenix rising from the ashes (you can probably tell I enjoy my bird metaphors 😆), BirdFolks will be reincarnated as @Paddyfolks and you will still be able to get your fix of their signature fried, savoury & tasty chicken along with their specialty rice offerings at their new joint at the up-and-coming @funansg from 28th June onwards! I for one can't wait for their grand opening! 后会有鸡!!! 🤗 .

Thanks @_boyz86 for the kind invite, @rachaelwong for the warm hosting and Matthias & team for whipping up this chicken feast! 🐔❤

Chanced upon this fried chicken concept while I was hunting for bagels at this newly opened mall. Impressed by this meal, as I wasn’t expecting much, given that they’re more known for their fried chicken.

Tender, moist and well-seasoned (the chilli in this dish is rly potent, so make sure you can take it) sous vide boneless chicken thigh which went well with the slightly tangy cilantro lime rice and runny onsen egg.

Yum! Only gripe was that portions were a little small, but that’s not gonna stop me from going back.


the signature chicken and rice from sliced chicken thigh brined and double fried, paired with garlic butter rice, soft boiled egg and vegetables.
the chicken was tender and juicy because of its brine. the double frying ensured that the batter was extra crispy, and I loved the nooks and crannies that gave it a lovely crunch after frying. the chicken is supposedly marinated in a mixture of asian herbs, but i found the taste somewhat similar to prawn paste chicken which i love. this was basically popcorn chicken on crack.
of note, the rice comes in a variety of flavours including tomato oregano, cilantro lime and garlic butter. each mouthful is rich and evenly flavoured, resulting in a very moreish dish!
I just wish the shop was a little more accessible. it is located at a shopping mall in west coast called NeWest, and probably 80% of the mall is not tenanted. talk about a ghost town!
