Review: Brother Bird Bali by Stateland Cafe @ Bali Lane

The Stateland Boys are at it again. After capturing our hearts with their honeycomb cubes at Honeycomb, they’ve decided to convert the space where the above mentioned used to be located at, to a relatively new concept, Brother Bird Bali. Well.. I’m not sure if it’s any different, because Brother Bird Bali serves up soft serves for now, without the signature honeycombs, of course.

We visited them during their soft launch and learnt that they have future plans of coming up with donuts, MORE awesome soft serve flavors, their very own cold brew and artisanal teas! Sounds like a place I would love to drop by for a chill out session.

I’m sure all of you might be wondering why does this place have such a kinky touch to its name. Haha! Walao, don’t think dirty lah. Bird, is the nickname of one of their owners (Chern Yu) that has stuck on to him since NS days because of his characteristic obsession with granola bars, which looks like bird food. So.. Brother Bird lor, or else his friends won’t know this place is ran by him. Hahaha! And Bali, I suppose it just means Bali Lane. There you go, Brother Bird Bali.

Going with the more minimalistic take on the interior, I thought the interior did not differ as much from the dimly lit Honeycomb, except for a cleaner and less cluttered finish.

The Menu

As they were still in the soft launch, Brother Bird had a rather limited menu, so we basically ordered the entire menu.

The Food
Photo 26-7-15 3 25 11 pm Honeydew  Sago ($5.50):
Pandan and coconut soft serve, topped with honeydew caviars, coconut flesh and fresh honeydew. This was a perfect dessert as it was light and refreshing with the inclusion of honeydew. I especially loved the fragrant soft serve, as we all know, coconut and pandan is one combination that hardly goes wrong. The surprise comes from the burst of the honeydew sago, we all agreed unanimously that this was one of the better soft serves we’ve had. Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetCookie Butter a.k.a Speculoos ($5.50): Speculoos soft serve, almond crunch and sea salt. Another option for those who prefer richer flavors in their soft serves. This was DELISH, except for the uneven spread of sea salt, causing some mouthfuls to be OVERLY salty. Otherwise I thought this was really, really good, especially for someone who loves cookie butter, like me!

Albeit the ugly swirls on our soft serves, do not underestimate the serving size of this soft serve. It’s a whooping 200ml of soft serve. If you don’t know how much that is, it’s a lot. HAHA! Really lah, it’s really a lot. The best part? Brother Bird makes sure to layer their soft serve and toppings to ensure the homogeneity of the crunch and ice cream – very shiok!

Closing Remarks

I really enjoyed my soft serves at Brother Bird Bali! The flavors were unique and definitely did not disappoint. Even though the price may be slightly high, I thought the quantity and the quality of the toppings made up for it! Oh, before I forget, DO DO DO try their teas by Ette Tea, because it was SO good, I want to get some for myself! We tried the Pandan and Lychee teas, both of which were rich and soothing, and was great at cleansing our palates after all the food we ate the entire day!

I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to the future offerings by Brother Bird Bali. DOUGHNUTS and NEW FLAVORS OF SOFT SERVE? YES PLEASE!
