Western dishes get a Sichuan twist at Birds of a Feather. Inspired by the laid-back teahouses of Chengdu, the café tastefully makes use of lush greenery and eclectic design pieces to create a space you won't mind unwinding at from morning 'til late. Make the café your new workstation – there's free WiFi, charging sockets and quiet nooks to churn out that report or have meetings.
The lunch menu features lighter bites such as the roasted chicken and avocado salad with Sichuan pepper ($18-$20) and Oriental Bolognaise ($20). Despite their names, the dishes aren't too spicy and the subtle kick added is easily manageable, even if you have a low spice tolerance. Dinner is a decadent affair with dishes like the Sweating Mussels ($29), Scottish blue mussels tossed in a spicy and sour broth with slippery and chewy Chinese yam noodles. For something a little less spicy but just as satisfying, there's there Sichuan oxtail soup ($24), a comforting bowl of oxtail and daikon soup served with a side of spring onion arlettes, a French twist on the spring onion pancake.
Brunch is also available during the weekend, with dishes like The Birds Skillet ($23), a rustic platter comprising bacon, camembert, cheddar, Sichuan sausage, spicy chorizo and roasted baby potatoes topped with two eggs. Big Bird 1st ($25) puts a spin on classic eggs Benedict by serving it with mala hollandaise alongside the usual English muffin, bacon, sausage and poached egg.
