The Yardbird

The Yardbird is an American restaurant/bar on the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade.

My mates and I had just had a walk along the promenade. It was time for dinner. We thought we would try something different this time - go to a restaurant we have never been to before.

Yardbird happened to be in view. Since none of us have dined there before, we decided to give it a try.

We were a little surprised by their prices. But, since we decided to try something different, we let it be.

A craft beer from SweetWater brewery. It tasted a bit bitter when I first drank it. I think craft beer usually tastes a bit different from regular pilsner beer. I didn't mind at all. My experience has been that every time I had a different beer, it tasted different. But after a while, I will get used to the taste and it will be all right. And it was the case with the Sweet Water craft beer. I think it went very well with the burger.

There were three of us at the dinner. One of my mates had the Tea braised Beef Feather Blade. It was nice but very rich. I don't think I would be able to finish the portion by myself.

Another mate and I had the 'Great American Burger'. It was the most expensive burger I have had in my life. But I must say it was quite good. Expensive, but at least the quality was there. And what was in the burger? - short rib, brisket and chuck blend, double patty, house-smoke pork belly, cheese, pickles... and the buns were soft and smooth. Just lovely!

There was a guy at the next table. I took a picture of his meal discreetly. He had the 'Chicken 'n' watermelon 'n' waffles'. I had originally wanted to go for that. But I had a feeling that it would be too much for me. True enough. Just look at the chicken. It's a whole chicken! The waffles and watermelons would have done me nicely.

All in all, it was an experience - something different. But certainly not something I can afford to do everyday, nor every week, nor every month. I will have to wait for the next blue moon.
