Yes, yes, Bird Bird Biscuit opened up way earlier this summer, but for some reason I just never got around to trying out the adorable East Manor shop until this week. I know, crazy!
Not only is the small eatery hella adorable (although, cruelly adjacent to a Crossfit gym, making me feel guilty walking in from my car while people lug a heavy tire across astroturf), but the scent of biscuits wafting hits you square in the face as you walk through the door. Brightly colored with vibrant hues, the menu may be simple, but the flavors are not.
Order one of the handful of sandwiches--I went with the Queen Beak (fried chicken with cayenne black pepper honey and a bacon-chipotle mayo), while my boyfriend nabbed a Little Bird (fried egg and cheddar). The Bird Bird Bacon is extremely popular, but I was there for the fried chicken, and my boyfriend doesn't eat bacon, so....there you go. My sandwich was juicy and buttery with just the right hint of the chipotle spice kicking my sinuses. The Little Bird was also great, but it could have definitely benefited from a mayo or sauce of some kind, as it was a little bit on the drier side. Those biscuits, though! While Olamaie and Fixe get all the biscuit love in town, these definitely rival those fancier spots with their pillowy, buttery deliciousness.
I wish I could have had a Topo Chico or a Mexican Coke to cut through the richness of my sandwich, but the tiny joint only offers water, OJ, and coffee, so perhaps Bird Bird Biscuit might be better suited for breakfast/brunch hours. Note: It closes at 2 p.m., so you late lunch eaters should take note.
We finished our meal with dough-doughs (biscuit donut holes rolled in cinnamon and sugar), which reminded my Canadian BF of beaver tails (so, if you're missing those Northern delights, you're welcome). They were definitely worth ordering! So, don't skip the not-so-little sweet bites. Or...take some to go. You can never have too much biscuit goodness!
