It’s october 2018. First time ko EVER ito itry. Kasi the truth is, even when it first opened and the lines were long etc, to me the food didn’t look good. Looked like chicken with a lot of paminta.

Today, Confirmed. It’s not good. I was not missing out. Considering it has all those ‘spices’ it doesn’t have any flavor. Also the breading makes the chicken look much bigger than it truly is. I’m so glad I waited this long to try it because I would be pissed if I stood in line only to receive mediocre fried chicken. There’s so many other cheaper, better options for fried chicken. This one’s truly a bad bird.

After a tiring eye check up at Asian Eye Institute last night (again), we went staright to Century City Mall--and it was no-brainer that we went straight to Bad Bird!

We ordered double-safe + fresh corn & coleslaw and double-safe + dirty rice & pickles!!!

As usual, the portions were big that we had the other pc. taken out.

It was a busy saturday night at Hole in the Wall tho, but servers were still attentive to refill our glasses! 6% SC won't hurt :)--and when you work in the hospitality industry, you should know that hehe! (It's either you hate or love the service, no in between!)

During the looloo Eat-up at Hole in the Wall, I tried the spicy chicken of Bad Bird for the first time. Usually, I have the plain flavored but this time, I checked the spicy one just to be different.

The spicy level was just right. Everything is tolerable up to the bones. 🤤 I think I could eat 2 more in one sitting but I had to share haha! The legit Umami taste of Bad Bird is what makes it different from the usual fried chicken. Ang sarap nia!

Hopefully magkaroon na ng branch near my place which is UP Town is the closest possible! ♥️

This was during the Looloo eat up last week. Enjoyed the overflowing food by Looloo. Thank you so much!
I liked the Corn on the cob so much. The fried Chicken is crispy but with very thick breading, imo. 9996

Looloo's most recent eat up was a feast, a total package for the senses ,good food,laughter and some bitter sweet moments.

Bad bird's good ol' crispy fried chicken were one of the main eventers ,chicken coated with crunchy batter smothered by powdered spices and seasonings ,i cannot even distinguished which is spicier than the others ,but I still go for the milder ones since its not that overpowering and you can really recognize the flavor of the food. But it doesn't matter because all were good.The hush puppies aka deep fried corn mill are always a delight.

The quality is still the same or I think its better now.Next stop Bad bird Serendra.128522

I attended a |looloo Eat-Up last night and had the chance to try Bad Bird. I wasn't really paying attention with the orders as I was just willing to dig in to whatever that was infront of us! (Thank you Peanut D & Roegan T 128536).

A choice between spicy or non-spicy chicken? I'll go to the non-spicy of course! The chicken might look intimidating at first because of the pepper and thick-crunchy-looking skin but once I've tasted it, everything goes well together!

Better than the Megamall branch. Also, sad that they do not have their Kimchi Coleslaw anymore. 128542

I may have tried a few from Bad Bird at last night's The Grand |looloo Eat-Up (ok, not really a few lol) but I loved everything there.

Yung pinaka-importante eh natikman ko yung fried chicken nila. The fried chicken was so, so yummy -- the breading was definitely different. It was not only crispy but also delightfully crumbly, salty (but not too salty) and peppery. The flavor was rich and umami. The chicken was big but not too plump, and juicy as well. This was really one bad, baaaaaad bird! 127831

I also loved those deep-fried corn bread balls, the fried rice and the coleslaw as well. I loved loved those corn bread balls the most among the other side dishes. Everything I tried was no-fails delish! 128523128523128523

Now I know why Bad Bird has one of the best chicken places in the metro. And no wonder it's been one of Peanut D's personal favorites too. 128522

Good thing there's another Bad Bird in Megamall (their first standalone branch I believe), which is a lot nearer to where I live. I will definitely go there soon.

Thank you P, Roegan T and |looloo! 128522

Edit: yay chicken badge! 128522

I remember my very first visit at Century Mall. I heard about Bad Bird and it’s best selling chicken.

It was worth it! Every time I drop by Century Mall, Bad Bird’s chicken is still amazing!

Spices, dirty rice and corn corbs are 128079🏻128079🏻128079🏻

My first time to try bad bird was a couple of years ago at the height of its popularity and of HOITW. Having no idea what it's supposed to taste like, was kinda overwhelmed by the powder and flavor. Fast forward to 2017 and I got to try it again, thanks to |ooloo and our super fun Hallolooween Party!
Props to Roegan T for getting us such a good deal at HOITW! Our ₱300 door charge got us a ₱500 GC to any establishment! They won't give change though so youve to order a lot hehe!
Beelined to bad bird since I've been wanting to try it again after a few great experiences at Fowl bread and with the controversy too Re the fried chicken at burger geek. The kimchi rice wasn't available anymore so I opted for the waffle plate. I also requested for 1 pc spicy, 1 pc regular. Plus a side order of corn to finish off my GC.
Got my buzzer and went back to the party. Food was ready in about 15 mins. Dug right into the spicy one and I loved it! It's not a burning kind of spice but very well rounded and tasty! It went well with the waffles and maple syrup. Pretty soon I was sweating so I started on the regular one which was equally delicious. The corn though was a bit cold, too bad. Since I ordered a lot, wasn't able to finish everything, sayang haha! Hope they'll open a branch soon here in the south!

Last week, I attended the first ever Halloolooween Party together with other fellow Loolooers. It was a fun-filled night because all of us were dressed up for halloween. I prepared myself as Wednesday Addams since it was one of the easiest characters to immitate. Surprisingly, there were three Wednesday Addams that night. Hello, Peanut D and Cindy S 128587🏽

Our halloween party was held in Hole in the Wall at Century
City Mall. Good thing, I was eager to try the most rave fried chicken of Bad Bird's. Since I had P500 food voucher, I ordered the P350 meal + softdrinks. On my plate I had: two pieces umami fried chicken, kimchi as side dish, and dirty rice.

I chose the "safe" spicy level simply because I underestimate my tolerance to spicy food. I asked the staff about the most preferred pair of the chicken and they said that their dirty rice was their best seller. The rumors were true. The chicken on the outside was too crispy and the umami flavors were so good. I almost hate the taste of the fastfood fried chicken because this one was the bombed. The dirty rice made with bacon pieces, chicken liver, tamago, and kimchi was perfectly created for the chicken. They were better together. However, I don't really like kimchi, I gave it to other peeps on my table.

Bad Bird is just one of the best food concepts inside the Hole in the Wall. I also tried other food but I will have a
separate review for those. I really enjoyed our Hallooween Party at this place. The space can accommodate big group of diners and can hold private gatherings. The staff were also accommodating and nice. I like the overall concept of the whole place from cool interior design up to the lighting.

Thanks Peanut D, Roegan T, and Pam L for the awesome games and prizes! Happy to see and meet everyone on the event. I'm now looking forward to the halloween party with Loolooers next year! More games and prizes, please! Haha! 128525

This is both a review and a story telling of Bad Bird and the recently concluded Looloo Halloween party. I was invited and thankfully, they allowed me to bring a plus one. The reason I wanted to bring a friend really is the costume that I'd be wearing, it's too extravagant and I couldn't wear without an assistance 128514.

Anyhoo, the event was held at Hole in the Wall in Century Mall. I was accompanied by my friend, Pancake, who came in as a vampire. I, on the other hand, came in as Anne Boleyn. Not many people know this character so wearing this costume entails some explaining to people who are curious. I had this gown custom made a few years ago for a movie themed yearend party of the company where I used to work. It's a 16th century gown, I couldn't wear it anywhere else, so it sat inside my closet for years after said event.

So when Looloo asked me to join their Halloween party, I knew that I had to wear the gown again. Thankfully, it still fits me rather nicely.

The customers of Hole in the Wall who saw me that night smiled at me. Apparently, they were quite amused seeing a woman in a 16th century dress.

The event itself is simple, no singing or dancing, just a few games to engage people, and also a raffle. Attendees did arrive wearing costumes; one came as Sadness from the movie Inside Out, one came as a Star Wars Jedi, there's a Spider Man (more like Spider Girl), there's also one who came as Ryu of Street Fighter. I don't get to attend costume parties a lot so I was naturally thrilled.

I think I surprised people when I came in because I heard some of them gasp, and I could have sworn they were all looking at me 🤣. I didn't win best costume though 🙁. Well that's okay, I still had fun.

There was a door fee of P300; used to be 600, then 400, and I'm so glad they were able to get it down to 300. We were given a 500-peso worth of voucher in exchange and we could use it to buy food from any of the Hole in the Wall's concessionaires.

My friend and I picked, Bad Bird. I've heard a lot about this food chain but never got to try it until that night. I ordered a two piece spicy chicken meal, comes with 2 corncobs, then I added kimchi side.

The chicken and the corncobs were fantastic. The chicken is so good they should called it Good Bird 128514. I like that it is flavorful down to the bones and that the meat is tender. It's salty and spicy, just the way I liked it.

The corncobs were a bit challenging to eat just because I was careful not to smear my lipstick all over it. So I made an effort shredding the corn from the cob with the fork and the knife.

Til the next Halloween party Loolooers!

Inside the conceptual hub of Hole in the Wall is the multifaceted dining area. The food hall is designed with street-vibe jeepney signages on the wall, wired steel screens on doors, brick walls, and blank cement floors. The innovative stall of Bad Bird sticked to the modernity of the look and upscale food options.

I go for the plate of corn and coleslaw for P390 and with an additional sweet potato waffles for P95. The umami goodness justified the steep price points. The chicken is seasoned thoroughly and the skin is immensly crispy. You can choose any spice level from safe, spicy, and chemical. I take calculated risks and the safe level is enough for me. As a devotee of anything fried chicken, Bad Bird lives up to the hype.

Whether you are here for lunch in between work or for a dinner over drinks, each plate serves it purpose for being a flavourful meal. Bad Bird opened a branch in SM Megamall fashion hall with upcoming stalls in Serendra in BGC, UP Town Center, and Robinson’s Ermita. There’s umami in almost every city in Manila 128523

It was my first time to try Bad Bird (only because I wasn't able to see something I'd like to eat in HITW)... Sad to say, I didn't like it that much. I don't get the hype and it was also a bit pricey. The waffles were unique but tasted just fine. The chicken was a bit dry and salty. Maybe next time I'd try the set that comes with dirty rice. We also waited for around 20 mins. for the food.

Second visit here. This time, got to try the Waffle Plate. Ahhg that miso butter was so perfect with the waffles. Of course, the chicken was spot on. A tad pricier than other chicken joints but well worth the price. 127881

Soooo bad it's soooo good 127831127831127831

Brunch at Bad Bird with Oliver. We got the Chicken Waffle Plate and Corn and Coleslaw Plate. I love their waffle! I want to try making it at home. As for the chicken, we love its umami goodness. Too bad it's too far from our house to visit it often 128557128557128557

It's been a while since I last had Bad Bird so when we visited Hole in the Wall, I ordered one Dirty Rice Plate just for myself bwahaha. The chicken was okay. The flavoring is mostly on the skin. While I was halfway through my food, I suddenly remembered that I didn't like the taste of liver because of the chicken liver chunks in the dirty rice. Without those, the dirty rice tasted okay. Also, I wasn't able to finish my meal because of cloying (sawa).
