East Meets West At Birdfolks, Where American Fried Chicken Is Served With Kopi

There has been a recent spate of Korean-style fried chicken restaurants opening in Singapore. From 4Fingers to Chir Chir, sometimes all we want is just to have good ol’ American-style fried chicken.

Crispy, juicy, and greasy. That’s the way fried chicken should be, unclouded by a myriad of gimmicky flavours.

At Birdfolks, that is what they are serving – good ol’ American-style fried chicken.

Leave It To The Birdfolks To Serve Good Fried Chicken

Located at 1 West Coast Drive, their Signature Chicken Rice Box ($9.90) includes edamame, sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, their house recipe boneless fried chicken and comes topped with a sous vide egg!

The best part is you get to choose from 4 different flavours of rice!

Choose from Original, Cilantro Lime, Tomato Oregano, and the recommended Garlic Butter rice.

Someone get me a tissue. Now. I need to stop drooling!

If you’re looking for a more traditional chicken meal, try the Thigh & Drum ($12.90) which includes 2 pieces of their signature American-styled brined fried chicken, served with fries.

What makes their fried chicken special is that the chicken is brined in a blend of seasonings before frying. This allows the chicken to retain its juiciness, ensuring satisfaction with each bite.

Another popular item on the menu is the Wasabi Mayo Chicken Sandwich ($12.90).

Chopped fried chicken is tossed in wasabi mayo before being sandwiched in dark rye sourdough (because white bread and burger buns are mainstream) with julienned carrots and corn kernels for crunch.

The cafe doesn’t serve up much in terms of drinks. Diners can choose from canned drinks ($2.80), honey lime tea ($2.60 for hot, $3.20 for iced), chocolate ($2.60 for hot, $3.20 for cold), kopi or teh. The choice of drink is clear. Teh is the weh (way) to go.

This quaint fried chicken joint currently seats 30 people and the food is really satisfying. We recommend that you pop by if you’re in the area!
