Bad Bird

Bad Bird makes extra flavorful fried chicken that will keep you coming back for more.

It has been two years since we ate at Hole in the Wall, Century City Mall’s curated food hall. It was a few days before Christmas and we met up with Khris’ college friends for their annual Yuletide get-together. After afternoon coffee, we headed to Century City Mall to have dinner. We went to Hole in the Wall because we could not decide on where or what to eat.

Anyway, Khris and I noticed Bad Bird and the plates looked promising. The first thing we noticed with Bad Bird, aside from its big servings, was how well-seasoned and crunchy the chicken skin looked. It seemed as if the chickens had been profusely rubbed with spices and flavorings that it was easy to expect them to be scrumptious.

We surveyed the food hall for more choices but it seemed as though our minds were already set for Bad Bird, so we fell in line to get our chickens. We ordered Bad bird’s Chicken and Waffles and Chicken with Dirty Rice. Both set meals had two pieces of chicken. Spice level can be customized based on your tolerance. I think we settled for a spice level that was just right, in the middle of mild and extremely spicy.

Chicken and Dirty Rice

We loved how crunchy and flavorful the chicken skin was. As they say, no need for sauce because all the seasonings were exactly right. The meat was also infused with spices which made each bite such a delight. Bad Bird’s Dirty Rice was fried rice with bacon plus a host of other good stuff. It was also delicious, however, I thought the chicken might have went better with plain rice. The combination of the flavors from the Dirty Rice and chicken was too savory and could easily tire one’s palate.

Meanwhile, the Bad Bird’s waffle with butter and maple syrup complemented the chicken well. I thought it was a genius combination because the sweetness of the syrup provided a welcome break from the strong taste of the chicken.

Bad Bird

All in all, Bad Bird was a novel concept and its Umami Fried Chicken can be easily recommended for those who love fried chicken or who want to try something new. Price was also reasonable at Php250 to Php300 plus. Not bad at all.
