Each fried chicken plate comes with 2 substantial cuts of chicken. Do take that phrase seriously as those cuts are HUGE! While others would just hide the tiny meat within a thick breading, this one seriously was all meat. One piece was filling enough so just imagine us having 4 huge chicken pieces on top of all the other dishes that we ordered that day. #whatisgluttony You also get the option to go for safe, spicy or chemical. Wanting to play it safe, I tried both spicy and safe and steered clear of chemical as it sounded...scary.
There are three platters available: Waffle Plate (Php. 290), Corn & Coleslaw Plate (Php. 330) and Dirty Rice Plate (Php. 320). We went for the first two with additional order of the dirty rice (Php. 85).
Meanwhile, I enjoyed the Kimchi coleslaw which made a good side dish to our fried chicken. As it turned out, the spicy was tolerable and I was somehow regretting not being brave enough to go for the chemical and see if I can still handle it. Perhaps living in the Lion City has trained my taste buds to tolerate the heat. Oh wellz...
The Dirty Rice (Php. 85) was also worth noting. Delicious and fragrant fried rice cooked with bacon, chicken liver and bonito flakes. It is closely similar to the teppanyaki-style Japanese fried rice only with that special umami kick.
There's more to try at Bad Bird at Hole in the Wall. One of which is the Hush Puppies which I heard are excellently deep-fried corn bread. Not sure if it's corn kernel-free but anyway, do let me know what to think of it ok?
