Uptown Mall is not just one of the newest malls around town, but it is also a hub brimming with new food concepts, be it foreign or local ventures. Located in a posh food court on the mall’s top floor is the Birdhouse, a resto which only opened its first branch here in Uptown Mall.
It’s all about fried chicken here at the Birdhouse . I would have to say that the competition for this kind of food concept is already a difficult road to take. After trying almost everything in their menu, I can confidently say that they will survive in this business. Birdhouse offers tasty dishes, with the rich flavors coming all the way from the meat, up to its bones. To top that all off, if you love crispy and well seasoned chicken skin, they serve plenty of it here on its own too.
Their fried chicken comes in nugget form as well, and they come in classic and spicy variants. If you’re feeling adventurous and wanting additional flavor on your chicken, you may choose to try out and buy any of their five artisan sauces–the milk gravy (which happens to be my fave), peach barbecue, green goddess, garlic ranch, and the upgraded version of ketchup, with truffles. Each of these sauces is priced at Php30, but if you order any of their four bundles, you get one sauce free. I highly suggest that you get more than one of these sauces.
I love the dirty rice. It is already a meal on its own, and it comes with lots of other stuff in it. The taste of herbs and even the chicken liver are prevalent in the rice. For a side sampler, the mac and cheese is worth adding to your meal. It will definitely be a sure hit with the kids.
Last but not the least comes the waffle with vanilla ice cream and chicken skin for dessert. Close your eyes and experience for yourself the wild contrast of salty and sweet, and hot and cold in this unique food item. I highly suggest for you to ask their staff to make your waffle extra crispy. Trust me, this will even make the experience so much better.
