Century City Mall has the pinaka-sowzyaaal food court I’ve ever seen. :p
It’s called Hole in the Wall, located at the 4th floor, above the cinemas. It looks like a hipster food hall with its stylish furniture, innovative architecture, and about a dozen stores that sell food that you won’t see in ordinary food courts!
They have Japanese cheesecake, pho, specialty burgers and shawarma, cookies that you can design on your own, craft beers, premium juices, sweet and savory eclairs to name a few.
Our store of choice when Mommy Joyce and I went there for dinner was Bad Bird. They’re known for umami fried chicken, so of course, that’s what we got. They have it in 3 flavors: Safe, Spicy & Chemical.
You can also choose from 3 different platters: waffle, corn and slaw, and dirty rice. Each base platter gets you 2 substantial chicken pieces at range of P290-330.
We had the Corn and Slaw Platter (P330). For the chicken, I got one safe and one spicy. The spicy chicken was tolerable. I don’t think I can handle the chemical. The corn has bonito flakes, Kewpie, cheese and togarashi (chili pepper). The coleslaw is a mix of red and green cabbage and kimchi dressing. The gravy is just an add on. The chicken has enough flavor and you wouldn’t really be needing gravy. Anyway, additional gravy is P15.
The Waffle Plate is P290 and we absolutely loved the sweet potato waffles with miso butter and maple syrup. Added P50 for 2 pieces of Hush Puppies (golden fried cornbread with scallions, honey and black pepper) and P85 for a cup of lip-smacking Dirty Rice (with chicken liver, bacon and bonito flakes).
The umami fried chicken was enjoyable- juicy meat and crispy, flavorful outer crust. I enjoyed the chicken, but I just have to say– I enjoyed the sides more. :p
