Birds of a Feather on Amoy Street in Singapore

Roasted Chicken & Avocado Salad with Szechuan Pepper

You wouldn't be able to tell by the name nor decor, but this place is from the owners of a coffee chain in Chengdu (115 Amoy Street, 6221-7449). As they put it, they serve "contemporary Western cuisine with a pronounced Sichuan influence," as seen in a mapo tofu burger, as well the fittingly-named "Find the Chicken in the Chillies," otherwise known as laziji.

The chicken and avocado salad above was laced with a bit of Sichuan peppercorn...barely. And that's in a good way, as it didn't overpower it nor steer the dish in a different direction. It just brightened it up a little. I liked it, but that S$18 (US$12.60) salad above barely dented my stomach. I'll come back here again if someone else pays, especially since they had an encouraging-looking cocktail bar too.
