Using free-range French poulet that are raises on a special feed, Lucky Bird combines chicken rice with a healthy Western twist
.
Comes with generous amount of shredded carrots, pickled cucumbers, purple cabbage, shallots, tomatoes and beansprouts
.
This healthy and luxurious version of chicken rice is surprisingly flavourful and the chili sauce packes a punch
.
And all the vegetables especially the pickled cucumber compliments the lean succulent French poulet and gave me a nice sourish refreshing aftertaste
.
One of my favourite modern twist on chicken rice

Using free-range French poulet that are raises on a special feed, Lucky Bird combines chicken rice with a Western twist
.
A carb-loaded burrito wrap which is chicken rice encased within a tortilla wrap
.
Personally, I prefer that this burrito wrap to have less chicken rice in it as it gets real messy after a few bites and also after half a roll, I feel really jelat
.
I would prefer that there will be more sauces for this wrap; perhaps ginger or black sweet sauce to have more flavour and texture

Grilled chicken slathered with spicy sauce, underneath a bed of cucumber and lettuce and tucked between a mantou
.
The chicken is nicely seasoned and grilled. But however tastewise it is more like sambal chicken or induced in otah perhaps due to the spicy sauce. And the cucumber wasn’t as crunchy as I thought it would be
.
A bit of a let down though as it had no flavour related to the laksa dish

Signature crispy fried chicken slathered with a Peranakan sambal belacan-style sauce made from chillies, dried shrimps, curry spices, laksa leaves and grated coconut

The skin have a nice shine to it. And once I bite into it, I got hit with an array of flavours; from spicy to sour to sweet. And none of the tastes overpower each other; each of them compliments each other really well
.
In my opinion, one of the best items from KFC as I unknowingly devour 3 Nyonya chickens at one go

Collaboration between Pretz and local seafood restaurant chain Jumbo Seafood
.
Favourite local Singapore Chilli Crab made into iconic Pretz stick
.
I was greeted by a strong tomato aroma when I open the packet
.
Tastewise, the pretz was really salty and the chilli flavour lingers at the back of my throat
.
I have to say I’m not a fan of this

.
Old Chang Kee’s Original Curry Puff in chips form
.
As I opened the bag, I could smell a strong curry aroma
.
I could tell that the Old Chang Kee put a good amount of spices for their Curry’O chips as I could taste the curry, onion, garlic and paprika in them
.
And after taking a few chips, they left me with a nice sweet-spicy aftertaste

Fish & Chips with a Singaporean twist
.
Breaded sea bass drizzled with aromatic rendang sauce and is then topped with fresh shallots and toasted coconut flakes
.
Comes with crispy white baits, 22 oz soft drink and a choice of fresh potato crisps, fries or pilaf rice
.
I opt for fresh potato crisps for the sides
.
The sea bass was breaded nicely and flaky on the inside
.
Toasted coconut flakes added a bit of sweetness and crunch to the fish while the fresh shallots enhanced the flavour of the aromatic rendang sauce
.
Overall, a nice Mod-Sin dish

Pork ribs with a Singaporean twist
.
BBQ Pork ribs glazed with housemade ‘Kopi-C’ sauce and served with You Tiao crisps and ‘Rojak’ slaw
.
The BBQ pork ribs are quite tough in the center and the ‘Kopi C’ gave a bittersweet aftertaste
.
But both the sides; You Tiao crisps and the ‘Rojak’ slaw provided a good amount of crunchiness and creaminess
.
And they gave me a refreshing palate and balanced the heavy ‘Kopi-C’ flavour
.
Overall, a nice Singaporean take on the BBQ Pork ribs

I was greeted by a strong coffee aroma when I open the packet

Favourite local Singapore Kaya Toast made into iconic Pocky stick

After taking a few sticks, I couldn’t taste the familiar eggy, coconuty jam notes
.
But instead I could taste the artificial coconut milk and pandan flavour
.
A good try though
