New grilled meats + loads of Korean & Japanese flavors!

Among the many food halls in the country, Hole in the Wall was definitely among the pioneers to establish a thoroughly design-forward concept—bringing to life 11 unique stalls in their 500-seater space. One of the earliest standouts was Bad Bird, which instantly made waves with their signature umami flavor.

Bad Bird — Mega Fashion Hall

Established by Lowbrow Casual Restaurants, Bad Bird is one of the pioneer dining concepts at Hole in the Wall in Century City Mall. Their claim to fame: their award-winning umami fried chicken available in three levels of spiciness: Safe, Spicy, and Chemical.

Fun Fact: Lowbrow Casual Restaurants is also the group behind Fowlbread, Wrong Ramen, and Hole in the Wall.

On March 1, Bad Bird opened its first stand-alone branch in Mega Fashion Hall—with cool, intimate interiors to boot. On its first week alone, lines have already been getting crazy at this 40-seater restaurant.

For months, Bad Bird meticulously developed over 10 new menu items including small plates, grilled items, cocktails, and dessert. While each new dish shines on its own, its overall cuisine is still focused on the umami taste that made the restaurant a crowd favorite at Hole in the Wall.

“Definitely, the fried chicken is still the star of the show,” says Tin Adriano, VP of Marketing for Lowbrow Casual Restaurants. She adds, “Across all new dishes, the umami flavor is highlighted, still using Japanese and Korean flavors and spices.”
