Chicken 'N' Watermelon 'N' Waffles

$45.00 · 49 Reviews

Known for their fried chicken, I decided to skip the famed Chicken ‘N’ Watermelon ‘N’ Waffles and focus entirely on their chicken by getting their Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken. Yes, I am a lady on a mission. This dish is so named because this 100 year old recipe is created by Lewellyn herself, or so I was told by the friendly staff. The chicken is brined for 27 hours, then battered in a medley of spices, and deep-fried to perfection. What you get is a plate of sinful indulgence, where you bite pass that lightly crisped skin to the juicy, tender and most importantly, savoury meat. the meat really does come off the bone easily, which makes cutting it less of a chore. Now, before you berate me with 'who eats fried chicken with utensils?!', you must understand the peer pressure when everyone around you is using utensils 😰 Not a fan of hot sauce in general, I paired my chicken with their bourbon maple syrup instead and I absolutely love it! My only qualm for this dish is that the herbs didn't really shine through for me, though it still makes for a pretty decent fried chicken. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

A Classic American cuisine specialising in waffles and fried chicken that it's without doubt I had to order their famed chicken-waffles dish. The fried chicken had a light crispy thin coat of batter that was flavourful and not greasy. The meat was moist and tender, a noteworthy especially for the breast meat. Waffles were a bit of a letdown as it was soft and non-crisp, but drizzled on the bourbon maple syrup, with its sweetness and deep oak flavour that complimented. The spiced chilled watermelon cubes were super refreshing and it balanced my palate after all the richness of the food. A very decent portion for its price point. 🍗🍉

Had been wanting to try yardbird ever since it was on food king and finally got to have it! Definitely wasn’t a let down, and the star was definitely the BOURBON MAPLE. I low key was about to steal the whole bottle back home so that I can slather it all over my waffles. Spiced watermelon had a slight spice after taste, which was pleasant. Overall, a really pleasant dining experience and this dish is good for 2 to share.

We came here for our Mother’s Day Lunch and it was an enjoyable experience. We were seated in the quieter corner of the restaurant that is dressed as a shed. It was kind of warm as the air conditioning wasn’t working there.

The service staff were very prompt, helpful and attentive.

The burgers were really delicious and juicy. They really did take the southern path down in all their dishes and it’s shows in their presentation as well. It is worth the price point that you are paying and you’ll leave the restaurant extremely full!

My recommendations are: The impossible burger and the fried chicken with braised watermelon.

was worried about their serving portions being massive so we just went for a signature fried chicken with waffles and spiced watermelons and a sweet corn hush puppies to share.
there were at least 6 big pieces of fried chicken. frankly speaking, nothing too wow about the chicken. skin was alright but the meat was dry. was expecting some juicy and tender poultry but expectations fell short.
the waffles were fluffy and substantial so its a plus for me. the spiced watermelon cubes were interesting, in a good way. sides definitely outshone the main. and the hush puppies did just that as well.
no idea what hush puppies were but we just decided to order them to try it out. deep fried mashed balls of potato with corn in them. sounds bloody sinful cos it is. but sinfully yummy though. the star of the night's show. flavourful and addictive.
$32 per pax.

Crispy fried chicken served in a chicken “coop”, paired with waffles, drenched in bourbon laced maple syrup and spiced watermelon. An unusual combo, but the watermelon is very refreshing and a great palate cleanser. Love the outdoor bar ambience that extends out of Marina Bay.

We head over to @yardbirdsingapore to try their newly revamped menu.

Was glad to see they’ve retained some of their signature items like Chicken 'N' Watermelon 'N' Waffles ($40) and Chicken & Egg Biscuit Sandwich($22). And how can we forget the thick stack of Buttermilk Pancakes ($22), dripping in honey butter and house made bourbon maple sauce!

P.S: Social Hour Tuesday cos it’s never too early for a tipple. From 6pm to 9pm, enjoy 50% off on four of our signature cocktails - Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade, Southern Revival, Southern Peach & Watermelon Sling.

* Best taste of southern cuisine*

I ordered this because the staff said that it's a must order dish at Yardbird. The waffles when paired with their signature maple syrup was so crispy and complemented well with the fried chicken. A friend who frequent this place often said that their fried chicken is air fried. That explained why it was not as oily and yet the chicken wings and drumsticks were so well browned. The watermelon could be a little more spicy otherwise I could come back just for this again! It's good to make a reservation as this place is usually full house on a weekend.

The one that almost every table ordered and of course we'd to jump on the band wagon! Fan of everything except for the watermelon (barely taste the spice) but guess it's a good refresher from all that fried and carbs!

Fried Chicken portion was really huge and would be best to share among 2 pax. It was definitely moist, even the breast however it was lacking in taste on its own. The hot sauce was too runny and didn’t do much to elevate the taste. Honestly was a bit of a letdown ...

The waffle that came with it was nothing spectacular and the bourbon maple syrup tasted like regular syrup with little bourbon taste honestly.

BUT i must say the star of the dish was the watermelon. ⭐️ Serves as a palate cleanser between the savoury chicken and sweet waffles which definitely is so refreshing with the striking mint taste and had a mild heat at the end with the paprika used. This is what I call taking something so simple to the next level, brilliant! 👍👍

The Mac n Cheese was so jelak and bad. Skip this. Overall, it was a very full yet not satisfying meal but the watermelon deserves a shoutout!
