Fitting perfectly in the hip and cool ambience of Uptown’s food court, Birdhouse is an Instagram-heaven with is country meets rustic feel. Elements such as the roosters, hay, and of course, birdhouses, adds a nice touch and definitely stands out from the other restaurants.
Now, let’s talk about the food, shall we? Birdhouse elevates the way you eat fried chicken and transforms it into a gastronomic experience like no other. Birdhouse’s specialty is its signature Birdhouse chicken (duh)—a golden brown, deep-fried creation. It goes well with any of its carefully concocted sauces, namely Milk Gravy, Garlic Ranch, Green Goddess, Peach BBQ, and Truffle Ketchup. Served as barnyard set meals, Birdhouse diners can choose their preferred chicken pieces, sauces, and sumptuous sides (elote corn, mac and cheese, coleslaw, fries, or dirty rice, anyone?) to create winning combinations that’ll satisfy any appetite.
The fried chicken has a black pepper taste in its breading while the chicken tenders has a lightly salty crisp breading, both having juicy and flavourful meat, having been brined before frying. We were all praised with all the dishes. I personally liked it so much that I got Birdhouse to cater my Axe Black event (wherein I got the opportunity to launch my own pop-up concept store, but more on that on my next post).
Craving for something sweet? You can cap off your meal with the sweet and savory Waffle and Ice Cream with Crispy Chicken Skin—chewy Belgian waffle topped with vanilla ice cream, maple syrup, sugar, and a generous serving of crispy chicken skin. Yum!
