Most of us are familiar with premium meats such as Wagyu beef and Kurobuta pork, but… Benja Chicken?

UFarm’s Benja Chicken is the world’s first brown rice-fed chicken that hails from Thailand! Raised in carefully controlled, cage-free farm and fed on brown rice, the chicken is said to boast a rich flavour profile, and is more tender and juicier than the usual chicken meat by 55%! No wonder Benja Chicken is preferred by chefs of Michelin-starred restaurants such as Saneh Jaan, Siam Wisdom, and Paste.

We had our first taste of highly-lauded Benja Chicken here in Singapore at one-Michelin-starred Alma by Juan Amador, and were duly-impressed.

The restaurant will be showcasing the Benja Chicken in a special 3-course Lunch Menu ($39++ per person) available for three months from 3rd September 2019.

We started with a very delightful Chicken Terrine, followed by Chicken Roulade coupled with wings that’s stuffed with brown rice, before rounding off the meal with a refreshing Wild Berries dessert.

Considering the well-execution of the dishes, no doubt the meal is exceedingly worth every penny. Especially the chicken itself which made a lasting impression with its distinct yet delicate flavours. That succulent bite was beyond fabulous!

Here’s some interesting facts about Benja Chicken:-

  • All chickens are 100% natural and they are well-raised in the indoor farm.
  • The farm is protected against disease and extraneous materials which may affect the health of chicken negatively.
  • Before entering the farm, personnel are required to take a shower, wash one’s hair and spray the disinfection spray.
  • With no exception, all vehicles must be cleaned and sprayed with the disinfection spray before entering the farm.
  • Benja Chicken is raised with the 5 Freedoms of Animal Welfare.
  • Benja Chicken is raised in a cage free area where chickens can wander and run freely.
  • The temperature in the farm is suitably adjusted to the ages of the chicken, allowing for the best comfort for every chicken raised in the farm
