Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 October 2017 via mobile

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

I like places that do one thing really well, and this place is famous for its chicken. It's pretty great, but my mind wasn't blown. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice plate of well made chicken, nice flavorful crust, nice waffles, and great corn sides -- which is why I gave it four stars. Not sure what was missing for it to be a spectacular, 5-star homeroom -- perhaps I should try the spicy or chemical flavor in the future.

I quite like the presentation though (see attached pic), and the care they put into their product. Will come back to try the other flavors to see if that gets them that extra star in the future.

For fried chicken lovers please visit this place. Skin is very crispy yet meat is really juicy. They also serve great sides, especially the corn on cob.

The fried chicken is tender with crunchy skin.
It work welled with the dirty rice of bacon/chicken liver fried rice.
Also came with a kimchi side.
Over all a good meal, but rather pricey for 2 pieces of chicken.

Their spicy chicken is so good and their serving is huge. I'm not a fan of their hush puppies though. I would still come back and try their other dishes.
