As early as mid-2016, Bad Bird has announced it will open its first restaurant in the Ortigas area and made many fans of their flavor bomb of a fried chicken very happy. Now with a bigger kitchen and bigger space to feed hungry customers, they are now firing up more dishes, extending their menu items beyond the bird.

Good grub beyond the bird: mix and match Bad Bird's new lineup of small plates and sides

Bad Bird plays around with Japanese and Korean food elements on their dishes, funkifying classics like agedashi tofu and banchan (Korean sides) with more punch and umami. A selection of grilled meats and seafood is now available if you're not craving for chicken, and for the thirsty, a refreshing cocktail lineup with Asian flair.

Something new and refreshing for the thirsty: Spiked Thai Tea (P190), Gin Apple Soju Fizz (P230), Melon Popsicle (P260), and Kim Jong Mary (P190)

Here's what else is in store for you when you visit Bad Bird in Mega Fashion Hall, now open to the public in Mega Fashion Hall, Megamall:

Crispy Squid Pancake (P230): Bad Bird's take on the Korean pajeon
Hush Puppies (P210): these deep-fried corn bread balls are a Bad Bird favorite
Prawndog (P260/1 stick, P490/2 sticks) : Corndog turns into a Japanese style hotdog, then gets a seafood twist with a juicy prawn replacing the 'dawg
Grilled Spicy Squid (290): a big skewered piece of squid laced with Gochujang for that kick; each grilled item comes with Korean pear, shredded cabbage, and 2 sauces (choose from hot steak sauce, black pepper sauce, ginger, chimichurri, and mustard bbq); you can add 2 sides for P99
12 Sides (P59 each) to choose from!: banchan-style plates to snack on or pair with grilled orders or chicken include Mashed Sweet Potato, Tamago Cup, Sesame Watercress, Kimchi, Scallion Pancake, Popcorn with Crispy Fish, Pan-fried Fish Cakes, Grilled Sesame Caesar, Kimchi Coleslaw, Eggplant Agedashi, Spicy Rice Cakes, and Mac Salad
Spicy Umami Fried Chicken​ Corn & Coleslaw Plate (P390): Umami Fried Chicken served with corn on a stick with Kewpie, cheese, bonito, and togarashi/kimchi coleslaw; all Fried Chicken Plates come with 2 cuts of Umami Fried Chicken served with spice level of choice (safe, spicy, or chemical)
Safe Umami Fried Chicken​ Dirty Rice Plate (P390): served with steamed rice or fried rice with bacon, chicken liver, tamago, and bonito/kimchi
Bad Bird now has desserts! Save space for an Ice Cream Scoop (P150) of homemade ice cream, and for now in two flavors -- chocolate and  dragonfruit with mango
Bad Bird's Hot Cheese Dip with Rice Cracker (P260) looks like a creme brulee, but dig in with a piece of the cracker and the gooey insides of cream cheese and lemon curd will remind you very much of the popular cheese tarts!
