Ah something long overdue.

Bad bird! That's what you say when your order of chicken really stings your taste buds and wanna make you drink milk. I knew the fact their chicken was is spicy so i ordered the safest, mildest one

128204 corn and coleslaw plate
I super like the big chicken pieces. The spice was just right for me--someone who easily sweat especially when eating spicy food. The coleslaw was okay for me. The corn with Japanese mayo and bonito flakes combination is something new and i like it as well.

Heard they're opening at megamall. Good that it's nearer north.

After The Beef, patting myself on the back because I also got to try BAD BIRD after gazillion years! FINALLY!!!! 128557128588🏼

BAD BIRD is said to be the baddest bird in town. Just like The Beef, a lot are saying that Bad Bird serves the best and meanest fried chicken. And ever since HITW opened, I've been wanting to try Bad Bird so bad!!

I always read reviews before going to restaurants just so I know what to order but despite reading a lot about Bad Bird, I still cannot decide which combo to get. Should I get the one with sweet potato waffles, corn and coleslaw, or dirty rice and kimchi? The struggle is real, guys!!! 128563

After some intense and serious decision making, Ony and I ordered the Corn and Coleslaw Plate. Since there are two pieces of chicken, we got one spicy and one chemical.

Again, it was Ony who tried it first and he said it was good. He liked how spicy the chicken was. Tried it and yes, it's like your usual fried chicken but not really. Basta, masarap siya!! The chicken was good perfectly, not dry or oily. Plus the breading was flavorful and not soggy. If you like spicy flavorful and tasty fried chicken, you should try this!!! 128076🏼

After enjoying the chicken, we then tried the sides. The Corn was good. Nakakaadik! Finally, we were able to try the "original". 128521128077🏼 Coleslaw was just okay. Nothing special but it helped lessen the spiciness of the chicken. 128517

Food court with a style, that's how HITW concept was established. Food parks trend this year as a new place for rumor discussion and funny talks with friends who would entirely spent a day for work dilemnas. I've been to The Yard and Streat, food buddies that night decided to have Hole in the Wall for dinner. Best thing about the whole food hall was you got to have your seats available in which i guess the area does not welcome potential foodies with tight budget. Let myself discover it, got to have my Bad Bird encounter. My friends tried as well Garde Manger, The Beef and Liberation Shawarma.

Bad Bird's Dirty Rice Plate - fried rice incorporated with bacon, chicken liver, tamago and flakes, kimchi for side dish and 2 pc fried chicken. You'll get wow of the chicken sizes, so much breading it adds to your appetite and it is not even made for that, chicken was made flavorful enough. Plating's wise, servings were meant for sharing and in my case i let my friends try my food for i could no longer fit it all in my stomach. 5 out of 5 due to its taste and serving.

The Beef's Cheeseburger with fries - distinguishable with its name, "The" on its title says a lot in terms of its quality and servings, somehow pertaining to that means as well for you to hurt your pocket. Anyway, the experience was a bit oily still remarkable. You'll end up having a huge mouth on the burger. 5 out of 5 due to its quality

Liberation Shawarma - no doubt on its offering, plating and servings were meant for sharing and that you'll finish eating it with a messy table. 4 out of 5 due to its messy encounter.

Garde Manger's Adobo flakes Salad - it's unique to put some flakes in a bowl full of veggies and that an experience i would love to enjoy. Dressings remind you of adobo somehow strange at first but you will get to have some once you were able to put flakes on your fork. 5 out of 5 due to its unique dressing and content.

The best thing about the food concept was it's like you still experience a fine dining at least. Waiters are politely refilling your glass a water.

After dreading myself with these huge servings, we ended up having craft cookies in Scout's Honor. Eagle's Scout Cookies for the three of us, 3 pcs for php250. The best way to end everything is to give yourself a treat. Anyway these were made possible by a friend who volunteered to give us some sweet treats.

The price dictates our nice experience, you have to have extra money for you to be able to try HITW.

I've heard so much about Hole in the Wall and the very famous BAD BIRD and how everyone's been raving about it. To be honest, I'm sick of eating fried chicken all the time but there are only 2 fried chicken places I would go eat without a doubt: Bad Bird and S&R's fried chicken 128036

Bad Bird: Umami Fried Chicken
As its name goes, Bad Bird serves fried chicken (duh128514) that has three different spice levels: safe, spicy, and chemical. You also get to choose your side dishes whether it be sweet potato waffles, corn and coleslaw, or dirty rice and kimchi. The 2-piece chicken plate with your choice of side dishes ranges from P290-P330. You can definitely of course order extra separate side dishes if you want.

We actually ordered everything. One of each of the Waffle Plate, Corn and Coleslaw Plate, and Dirty Rice Plate. If you love spicy foods, definitely go for the chemical128293 But safe and spicy are just as good.

Personally, I loved their corn and coleslaw plate mainly because of the 127805 which was covered in Japanese mayonnaise, bonito flakes and umami spices. It's just so buttery and flavorful that makes me want to eat it as snack on a daily basis. (Just thinking about it makes me hungry 128069) However, the waffle and dirty rice aren't going down with a fight! The sweet potato waffles come with miso waffle and maple syrup and it's very delicious! I mean, how can chicken and waffles not go well together? Also, since it's sweet potato, it doesn't feel as sinful as it normally does. 127840

The first time I tried their chicken, i thought that it was crazy good being crispy outside and juicy on the inside. It had a unique taste to it as well. But when I came back the second time, I don't know why but it wasn't that great anymore. I'm sure that the flavors didn't change or anything but there was definitely something different. Don't get me wrong, it's still good but just not as amazing as the first time. Anyone who feels the same way about it❓

Like what I have said from my previous review. I will be going back here and try their waffle plate! And it didn't disappoint me. The spicy chicken and the sweetness of the waffle compliment each other. Haha! 128149

Since it was raining so hard last night, I went with my officemates to Century Mall to have dinner since it was still impossible for us to get a decent transportation without getting soaked ubder the rain.We were all craving for something different and heavy and found this stall that serves chicken. I ordered for the Dirty Plate which consist of rice with liver(i think), kimchi and 2 pcs. chicken.

To make the long story short, it was an experience but it was not spectacular since it was just like an upgraded(and more expensive) than Bonchon.lol!

Thumbs up however for the place as I liked it a lot. I will try to come back and try the rest of it.πŸ€”

I love Bad Bird. Thinking of trying their Chemical chicken next time as I've found the Safe flavor doesn't excite me anymore.

And I just discovered that you could ask them to shred the corn for you. Yey! :)

Best fried chicken that I've ever tasted. It's a bit pricey though pero once you get to taste it ahhhh it's worth it naman pala. We ordered the spicy one as in ung sisipunin ka sa pagka-spicy pero nakakaadik na di mo titigilan kasi ang sarap talaga. Sana they could open different branches in the metro.

I am a big fan of Chicken but this one was a bit salty and weird for my taste. There was a flavor in the breading which I didn't like. It is a bit to pricey as well. The corn and the dirty rice were okay.

So a lot has changed since I was here last.

First, the coleslaw''s dry now.

Second, the lady in the counter said that there was no honey. I saw the honey by the cooking area, and told her that I had ordered it before. She kept insisting that I was referring t the maple syrup. I said nope, honey. She okay. She will just punch in maple syrup but will give my honey. I said okay. But when my order arrived, you guessed it, maple syrup. I went back and requested for the maple syrup to be changed to honey and she looked at me with a very pissed off look. But then the guy behind her said that they did have honey and he replaced my maple syrup.

Ugh.

Chicken is still good though. πŸ–’

No queues on a Sunday afternoon!

The chicken itself wasn't super tasty but the skin was umami-very good! Wish the breading was crunchier though! The waffles were a bit soggy and chewy, a bit disappointed from a waffle lover here! I liked the miso butter, something new to the palette. :)

Unplanned late lunch at Hole in the Wall last Sunday.Its has been more than a year since the last time I dine in this "alta" food court (as far as I can remember, it was a looloo eat up in December128522) And this come back marks my return to Bad Bird -known for their Umami Fried Chiken(who has an exaggerated long line & runs out of chicken that time)

It is noticeable, they are selling like hotcakes. Long queue though food is prepared for around 10 mins. And its past 1PM. They have 3 choices : waffle(P320),corn & coleslaw (P350) and dirty rice (P350).All of the meals are served with 2 fried chickens with different flavors of your choice: safe, spicy and chemical.

I had corn & coleslaw. My fried chickens are safe and chemical. The corn is flavorful with the flaky flavors all over it. The safe chicken, is okay with me, its flavorful. The chemical one is super spicy. When they say super spicy.. Believe it128540

All in all, the chicken is great and its not dry (no gravy needed). I love how serious they are with spice. Though I find it a bit pricey. But its my kind of lunch, once in a while its a nice place to visit
