Birdhouse

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s…well, it’s really a bird. You can’t find Superman and his bravado at the Uptown Mall, but you do get to taste fried bird, erm—chicken! Bluntly speaking, that’s kind of the same thing. So I journeyed once again to the south streets to have a taste of the clucking wonders of Birdhouse.

 Last September 1, Birdhouse opened its feathered doors to every chicken lover out there. But before people got their hands on some crispy chicken tenders, I was graced with an invitation to try out their delicacies in advance.

Birdhouse is indeed a consumer’s commercial delight. From a millennial standpoint, it’s rhythmic use of underlying humor and hashtag puns are a sure way to make people go “Ba-Gawk!” But really, aside from its multiple jabs at witty marketing, Birdhouse does deliver a fresh menu.

Like a giddy kid and “skwabag” (forgive the term) that I am, lining up for free food is always a luxury worth having. We were given interactive cards to indulge in our chosen “bird”. With all the side dishes and sauces to choose from, we did have a challenging yet fun time in deciding.

Of all the chicken plethora I was garnished with, I am quite certain that the black-clad buns of the Salted Egg Lava Chicken Sandwich are definitely an eye-opener for someone who has already seen a lot of cooked chicken variants.

Quite the salty culinary approach, yes, but I guess you can’t really complain on the abundant menu Birdhouse has to offer—not to mention its subtly affordable price. Because aside from catering well to a chicken-oriented taste bud, Birdhouse does its best in giving people something new and exciting.

Dizzy from fullness, we still decided to battle our gastronomic limits with a bacon glazed waffle. Because who doesn’t love bacon, right?
