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).

Dont you find it odd that I've been to Bad Bird multiple times and this is the first time I've tried their Chicken in the "safe level"

Odd eh? Anyway, albeit the lack of heat, i loved the flavors of the safe variant. I guess this only means one thing - I love Bad Bird with or without the spice.

Bad Bird has always been my-to-go-place everytime I crave for Umami fried chicken. In Hole in the Wall, Century City Mall, they have three Fried Chicken Plates to choose from.

• Waffle Plate (PHP 290) - 2 sweet potato waffles with miso butter and maple syrup (unexpectedly delicious)

• Corn and Coleslaw Plate (PHP 330) - Corn on cob with kewpie mayonnaise, bonito flakes, togarashi, cheese and kimchi coleslaw

and of course my favorite among the three choices,

• Dirty Rice Plate (PHP 320) - fried rice with chicken liver bits, tamago, bonito, and kimchi

I usually pick the safe spice level when it comes to ordering at Bad Bird, it is for me to enjoy the fried chicken plate because the spicy level is already too much for me and I can't even imagine ordering the chemical spice level. :)

The price is reasonable because one plate is good for sharing. Just add some side dishes to make it more fulfilling. But of course, I don't have any problem finishing it by myself. :)

Overall, I would always recommend Bad Bird to anyone craving for some really good Umami Fried Chicken.

And, I can't wait to try out Bad Bird Restaurant at SM Megamall Fashion Hall because I've heard they offer a lot of new dishes there. :)

One of the really safe choices at Hole in the Wall. Got the waffle plate (PhP330) and shared it with my food buddy. We also ordered an additional dirty rice (PhP95). Not your usual fried chicken indeed!

This is my safe spot at hole in the wall. More than half of the times I went to hole in the wall, I ate at Bad Bird. And in those times I ate here, I usually get the Dirty Rice Plate. Again, I’m a man of habit.

I often order this dish because of the sides which accompany the 2 big cuts of fried chicken. Spicy for me is actually a bit too much at times, so I really can’t imagine what it’s like to eat a chemical spice level. I’m definitely not going to order that if I wanted to enjoy my food. I find myself alternating between spicy and safe spice levels just to ensure enough variety in my visits. I find the serving just right even though it’s quite filling. Kimchi’s a nice touch!

On my next visit, I plan to taste their chicken nuggets!

That’s it for now. Take care everyone!

Bad Bird is one of Hole in the Wall's pioneers and its 2nd-branch-slash-1st-stand alone restaurant just recently opened in Megamall. The brand has obviously come a long way and I have never tried it. But after a series of unfortunate events brought me to Century Mall, I decided that it's time to try Bad Bird because hello, ako na lang yata 'di pa nakapag Bad Bird. 128529

I ordered the Waffle Plate, Safe Spice Level meaning not spicy at all. One bite was all I needed to know that it's good. One plate is definitely good for sharing but I had no problem wiping it out.

All my appointments got cancelled all of a sudden. I was starting to feel gloomy when I remember I'm a few minutes away from Century Mall x Hole In The Wall x Bad Bird!!!

Wicked fried chicken with chemical spice level that is nothing but crispy and juicy. Such tasty chickens!128538

Like always, I ordered corn in a cob and dirty rice too.

Finally got to try Bad Bird! Hehe, my mom and I got their waffle platter to share as we were only looking for a ~light~ snack. Anyway, we opted to go on the safe route lol. Waffle was delicious, I really liked the miso butter. Alsooo, the chicken was so good! Now I understand what all the hype is about. I love how crispy the chicken skin was, and it was really flavorful too. Might try the second ~spicy~ level next time. That, and we might go with the dirty rice platter next time too. 128518128523

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
