Open For Business: Bird Bird

"Satisfry" your fried chicken craving at Bird Bird, a Thai eatery opening on Tuesday in Ann Siang Road.

True to its name, the menu features dishes such as Bird Slayer Pancake ($22), coconut and corn pancake with fried chicken, fried egg and fish sauce caramel; basil duck tater tots ($22), which is spicy grapow duck, snake beans, fried egg and hash browns; gai tod ($25), southern-Thai fried chicken with caramelised chilli jam; and Waterfall Lamb ($28), lamb rib meat with Thai herbs, roasted rice, smoked chilli and cabbage.

Side dishes include Umami Corn ($14), BBQ corn with Sriracha, mayonnaise, shrimp floss and lime; and Mama Coleslow ($14) made with crunchy instant noodles, Thai herbs and century egg.

Desserts include Thai doughnuts ($10) with Thai kaya dip and Bird Bird Sundae ($8), which comprises coconut ice cream, palm sugar caramel, corn and fried chicken skin.

The drinks menu features Thai red milk tea slushie ($5) and Chiang Mai Mule cocktail ($15 a glass, $55 a jug) with ginger beer, lime, lemongrass, curry leaf and vodka.
