There are seven chicken sandwiches to choose from at Birdie, but the one we have our eye on is the tandoori chicken sandwich. It comes with fried or grilled chicken, as well as a dry rub made with traditional Indian spices, mint sauce, tomato and onions. Complete the meal by adding onion rings, fries or waffle fries to your order.

Known for its cheesecake and molten cheese tarts, this bakery has added the perfect summer treat to its menu: Japanese buttermilk ice cream. Try it on its own or in flavours like local fresh honeycomb, strawberry, chocolate or blueberry.

The gourmet deviled eggs are one of the signature dishes at this breakfast and lunch spot. Each order comes with six egg halves filled with egg yolk, mustard, fresh dill and mayo, then your choice of seven toppings ranging from pickled onion, to caviar, to maple bacon crumble. If you like surprises, you can also opt for the chef’s choice deviled eggs, which will feature their choice of toppings.
