Premium Benja Chicken From Thailand Is Now In Singapore! Try It At One-Michelin-Starred Alma by Juan Amador, Goodwood Park Hotel

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
  • Benja Chicken uses an innovative animal feed to raise its chickens. The special formula comprises specially selected brown rice grains, which are rich in Gamma-Aminobutyric acid, antioxidants and vitamins B3, B6 and B9.
  • The recipe formula is suitably adjusted to the Benja Chicken's ages, resulting in the efficient growth of the chickens.
  • Benja Chicken is raised with clean water from the clean water filtering system.
  • To ensure the good health of Benja Chicken, UFarm conducts consistent health checks on the chickens.
  • No growth hormone or antibiotic is added to the feed, which has been certified by the American NSF International.
