Bad Bird: Hole in the Wall Series Part 1 (Century Mall Makati)

Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

Hole-in-the-Wall in Century Mall has been raved for quite some time nowSince the family and I haven't tried it I invited them there for my birthday blowout so we could all experience it togetherI'll start this in a series starting with Bad Bird.

We arrived there at around 6pm and the place was already packed.  We were a group of 20+ so it was really tough to find a seat where we could all stick together so we had to talk to the staff if they could open the second floor for us.  After a few minutes of consideration, they complied.  

Bad Bird had the longest line so while waiting for the relatives, I already ordered for everybodyBut, big brother and the guys were the ones who volunteered to pick up the orders when the buzzer beeped.


Fried Chicken Plates (2 Substantial Cuts of Fried Chicken w/ your choice of Spicy Level )
Waffle Plate (290 php)
The Waffle Plate comes with 2 pieces of fried chicken, 2 pieces of sweet potato and miso butter maple syrup.
Corn & Coleslaw Plate (330 php)
Corn & Coleslaw Plate comes with 2 pieces of fried chicken, corn on a stick with Kewpie, cheese, bonito flakes, togarashi and kimchi coleslaw.

Dirty Rice Plate (320 php)
The Dirty Rice Plate comes with 2 pieces of fried chicken with fried rice with bacon, chicken liver and tamago, kimchi and 2 pieces of hush puppies.

Everyone loved the Umami Fried Chicken.  I can feel that it was heavily dusted with spices but taste-wise the blend is just right.  What really stands out was its crunchiness.  It was also tender and juicy.

Trying the sides: Waffles, Corn on a Stick, Kimchi Coleslaw and Dirty Rice, it was really difficult to choose which is the best.  But, I noticed that the most popular one is the Dirty Rice.

Hush Puppies (160 php)
The Hush Puppies are golden fried corn bread in ball-shape dusted with black pepper and topped with scallions and served with the miso butter maple syrup.  When I first brought this, it didn't make a tempting appeal compared to the other orders.  When we tried it alone, it was really good.  But, dipping it in the miso butter maple syrup makes it even better as it over rides the oiliness.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Bad Bird is definitely rave-worthy.  But, because it is is quite pricey, you really can't expect people to enjoy is as much as often as our favorite fast food fried chickens.
