The @mandemvfood hit the streets of #London to sample@bird_restaurant who recently boasted about the size of their burgers in an Instagram exchange with the Man Dem.#Bird is famous in the U.S. for its #Chicken& #Waffles, so we brought along@lawrencephil08 who is from #Atlanta to taste how the #Shoreditch Bird compares with the #U.S. branches.
FOOD: The Man Dem ordered a variety of items on the menu. For starters we had a mixture of buffalo/BBQ/fried #chickenwings. The honey sauce was superb. The meat used for the #burgers was of a good quality and cooked just right, no complaints.
The chicken was of a high grade and passed the taste test for a high street restaurant again no complaints. One portion of chicken was over cooked, but this was quickly replaced with a fresh batch. The waffles had a fantastic taste and texture. In comparison to the U.S. Omar was underwhelmed, with the smaller portion sizes and not as tasty.
SERVICE: Staff were friendly and happy to answer our questions. The mains took long to arrive roughly 35mins. A few Man Dems stomachs started making sounds, we just needed some wireless speakers to start a #soundclash
Staff apologised for the wait so at least it was acknowledged. We found a long strand of #hair in one of the meals! The manager came over and offered a free plate of food and removed the hairy meal from the final bill. Top notch#customerservice.
The concept works, food is good not great, and the customer service is exemplary. Lets hope the hair was an isolated incident as Bird is worth a visit for lunch or evenings catch up with friends #foodporn #foodies #foodblog #blogger#blog #mdvf #mandemvfood
SUMMARY: Bird gets 3.5 mandems out of 6.
