Making a big impact in local foodie news now is Hole in the Wall, the first of its kind high-class food court to hit the Metro. Located in Century City Mall, Makati, its set-up of is like a warehouse turned living room with its amazing blend of industrial and cozy, playing with woods, metals, bricks, finishing off with gray walls, warm light in industrial lamps, greenery and color from the furnishing. The place has a broad line up of food ranging from Asian fried chicken to artisanal cookies and milk. Some of the most noted stalls in this classy food court are Bad Bird, Mister Delicious, and Scout’s Honor.
If you’re a big fan of spicy food or if you just feel like you wanna cry a little but you can’t bring the tears out then Bad Bird is for you. Bad Bird is known for its Asian spiced fried chicken ranging from safe to chemical. They also severe sides to go with your chicken such as kimchi coleslaw, sweet potato waffles, and dirty rice, which is fried rice with bacon and chicken liver. I recommend getting sides that aren’t spicy like the sweet potato waffles with miso butter maple syrup to even out the flavor of the chicken. It costs Php 330 for the Corn and Coleslaw plate, Php 320 for the Dirty Rice plate, and Php 290 for the Waffle Plate, all of which has two pieces of succulent chicken with the sides.
Leveling up the ordinary sandwiches and making it even more heavenly is Mister Delicious. This stall makes sandwiches feel like fine dining considering its menu of their own Mister Delicious BLT (Php 370), Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich (Php 390), Pastrami Reuben (Php 450), Curry Chicken Sandwich (Php 290), a killer Gooey Grilled Cheese (Php 350) and more. All of their sandwiches are huge and would be enough to feed two people or one very hungry or greedy person. The sandwiches are also pared with kamote chips which is perfect as it doesn’t over power the flavor of the sandwich compared to regular potato chips. The stall also provides breakfast options throughout the whole day such as Bacon Pancakes (Php 390), Biscuits and Gravy (Php 340), and Steak and Eggs (Php 390). Not only do they have amazing sandwiches be they also have beer to match with their craft beers and craft ginger ales.
Fulfilling our little girl scout dreams is Scout’s Honor. The place gives you the option to make your own cookie for just Php 120. It’s basically making your dream cookie without baking it yourself. You just choose the type of dough, classic, vegan, or molasses and oats, and then choose the toppings to go with it such as chocolates, marshmallows, dried fruit, and so on, then just leave it to the stall to bake it for you. If making your own cookie is not your thing you could choose one of their on the menu cookies such their Thin Mints, their Macha and Sesame, or their Cookie Inception, which is an Oreo inside a chocolate chip cookie.. But what are cookies without milk? Scout’s Honor also sells infused milk like their almond ginseng, bamboo charcoal, and cherry chocolate to compliment and complete your cookie cravings. The price of the cookies range from Php 180 to Php 250 for three pieces and the bottle of milk cost Php 110, but there are sets and packages to get a better deal.
Hole in the Wall should definitely be part of your barkada hang out list although you guys might want to save up if you all want to try a little bit of everything. Now let’s just all wish that our school cafeteria was as awesome as this place.
