Early Bird's Surprisingly Homey Food and Interior in BGC

Early Bird's Surprisingly Homey Food and Interior

Hello fellow foodies! This is my first post for 2018, and I am excited to share with you this restaurant we were able to try in BGC. This has an interesting story because we initially rejected dining here. Let's find out more about this resataurant, shall we?

Facade of Early Bird Breakfast Club

When we found ourselves in BGC once again, we couldn't decide where to eat. We were having a rather odd craving, and we couldn't figure out what we wanted, so we decided to just walk around High Street, and eventually ended up here in Fort Strip.

An initial rejection
We came across this place which initially didn't look like much of a restaurant. It looked all cramped up and dreary from the outside. The posters also didn't look that exciting and appetizing, so we decided to skip. Minutes later, we found ourselves giving it a try.

Interior of Early Bird in BGC

Upon entering, we suddenly realized that the interior was not as bad as we thought it to be. Well, yes, it may look small, but it still has this air of comfort. At some point, we felt home.

By the way, I just used my mobile phone for the photos, so the quality may not be as great. Still, I think there were able to provide sufficient justice to the dishes, which I'll be sharing with you about later.

The concept of breakfast in your home
I think what really helped in the home-like experience was the menu that comes in a form of newspaper. It's like waking up in the morning with your daily newspaper. The concept was strong yet easy to pick up.

Early Bird's Newspaper Menu

Going by its name, Early Bird really focuses on All-Day breakfast dishes such as pancakes, tapa and some pasta. These are also comfort food to cure you of your hangover, just in case you still find yourself in BGC after a night of clubbing in the area. Anyway, let's start checking out the few dishes we had for lunch.

Hash Potatoes of Early Bird, BGC

The Hash Potatoes (P80) came in an interesting jar served with sweet marinara sauce. The serving was considerably hefty for the price, and it was served really warm.

The Sunny Salpicao of Early Bird Breakfast Club

The Sunny Salpicao (P295) was tender with right level of garlicky and savory taste. It's your typical salpicao (but this time, chicken) served with a bright and sunny egg on top.

Stuffed Chicken Ris-oat-oh of Early Bird

The Stuffed Chicken Ris-oat-oh (P325) was visually enticing. Also, not only did it look healthy, it definitely was. It somehow resembled a risotto but it's just a sufficient substitute. It also had subtle flavors perfect for health-conscious foodies. You'll love the play of mild flavors from the cheese, sun dried tomato, chicken and oats.

Unfortunately, we didn't have dessert anymore because we felt carbo-loaded already. We'll definitely check out this restaurant for more of its dishes.

Early Bird can be tricky at first glance, but it has something wonderful hidden within its homey interior. We're still unsure as to how great the place is, since we were able to try only a few dishes. However, we do see a lot of potential, so we will put this into test soon when you drop by for the second time!
