They’re usually known for their dessert treats by @brotherbirdflagship, but for those who don’t know, they too have a pretty decent dinner menu of Asian-fusion cuisine!

One of the items that caught our eye was the Hainanese Chicken Rice Risotto ($22). Mentally, it did sound like a pretty adventurous dish, but upon the first mouthful, I could figure why it worked!

Similar to chicken rice, the risotto is cooked with garlic and topped with soy braised chicken, naibai, sriracha chilli vinaigrette, fried shallots and spring onions! The broth that comes from the braised chicken packed a garlicky punch which felt like the most tasty and flavour-packed risotto I’ve had in quite awhile.

If being adventurous is not your thing, why not try the Mentaiko Salmon Pasta ($25). A generous portion of poached salmon sits atop aglio olio with mentaiko dressing, and is dressed wih tobiko, spring onions and seaweed. You get a creamy combination of the mentaiko when mixed and pairs well with the poached salmon!

Last but not least, end your night with their famous Mochi Donut which comes with seasonal flavours of soft serve! We ordered the Peanut Butter soft serve and it paired so well with the mochi donut that it felt as if we were having muah chee. The combination and texture of the mochi paired with the ice cream brought us back to our younger days to fighting over small packets of muah chee, but yet enough to satisfy our dessert cravings.
