Ordered Waffle Plate. It's good they said it's good for two. But it looks like I can finish it by myself.

So I was able to make the CBF go with me and finally try The Hole in the Wall place in Century City Mall. 128513128077🏻

First, we did a quick tour to see what attracts us the most, and yes. Bad Bird attraction was strong! 128517

What excites me the most is the level of spicy for the chicken namely: Safe, Spicy and Chemical. Of course I wana go extreme-- so went with the Chemical-- well I really love it. 128525 The CBF cried for days., (he's not into spicy food.) 128514

I know I promised myself that I'd drop by again. Will have to push the CBF to go back 128517.

One Friday, while trying to wait out the coding window, I decided to head on over to Century City Mall. I didn’t know where else to eat so I ended up in Hole in the Wall. Hahaha!

127831 Fried Chicken Plate – Corn & Coleslaw Plate [PHP 330]
Your choice of safe, spicy or chemical for the spice level. I went with the spicy one. 2 pieces of fried chicken with corn on a stick with Kewpie Japanese mayo + bonito flakes ♥ I love this corn!! The kimchi coleslaw was a bit weird for me but I was still able to eat it. Hahaha!

First time at Hole in the Wall! First timer in Century City too! haha

You can order in umami chicken with different variations.
1. Waffle plate, comes with 2 pieces sweet potato waffles with miso butter and maple syrup.
2. Corn and Coleslaw, comes with 2 corn on the cob with coleslaw.
3. Dirty Rice Plate, fried rice with bacon, chicken liver.

We had the Corn and coleslaw, I must say I liked their coleslaw, the dressing is light enough to not leave you sated. The corn on the cob with Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise, bonito flakes and togarashi umami spices is delicious, though, there's nothing special about it. I still like Burger geek's umami corn. Its more tastier.
The chicken is well spiced. We ordered for spicy, and the spiciness is tolerable. I wonder what the taste of the chemical. The chicken is cooked well. It is crunchy and you can taste the spices on every bite.

I liked what we've ordered,however, I just think that I can have a more delicious food with the same price. Its a bit pricey for me. Maybe because of the place itself or its just that. haha

Got so excited to go back to Hole in a Wall that we were not able to decide where to eat! It took some time and two very slow rounds (or laps, if I may call it that way 128540), around Hole in a Wall just to choose our much awaited lunch.

At last, we landed on Bad Bird! And yes, I'm a first timer here! And from first bite, I'm saying I'm definitely coming back. We chose the Waffle Plate and we loved it so much! The waffle is not too soft, which I really loved. They definitely put a lot of thought on this side dish as even the miso butter is top notch! Definitely better than more well known pancake and pastry shops out there. It actually matches the chicken's salty-spicy cajun-ish taste.

The chicken isn't so big but is very lean and tasty. Don't expect it to be juicy as it is really better as it is, dry and crispy, and very tasty.

The dish is actually good for one but is quite big so it can be shared (as we did). Our chicken was served in 15 minutes. Waiting time isn't too long once you try out your chicken... and yes, I have to mention the waffle again. It's probably the best waffle I've tried so far.

I missed Hole In The Wall! It has been months since I last hung out in this place. I met with one of my suppliers at CCM then I decided to have lunch before going back to QC.

My immediate thought: Bad Bird!

I got the dirty rice combo with a safe and a spicy chicken. I could never decide between dirty rice and the corn, so I just get the corn (off the cob) on the side...

I really like their chicken, especially the spicy one. I just can't eat it straight because of the spice. I will never try the chemical, it might just burn my tongue off. As usual, their dirty rice was the bomb and the corn was really good! 128516 Not really a fan of kimchi though... Oh btw, I can't finish it all...

I like spending time alone and I was able to enjoy my meal at my own pace. HITW was pretty chill on a weekday, despite it being lunch...

Bad Bird is one of the establishments in "Hole in the Wall'' located at Century City Mall in Makati.
It's has the longest line, that's why we tried it and thought that maybe it's really worth trying and worth lining up for.
Upon tasting, I can say it's good but not so worth it of its price.

Budget should be around P300 to P500 per meal. Quite expensive that you can really feel that you're in Makati 128513

Ordered the Chicken & Waffle plate & found it extremely satisfying. Love that the waffles were healthy (made from kamote) yet tasty! For the spice level, I had mine at Chemical levels, baby! Super hot, just the way this tita likes it.

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.🤔

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! :)
