Year of the BACON!

Yes, once every 12 years, the pig takes center stage and outshines all the other animals, just like this Year of 2019. But for us breakfast lovers, bacon has always taken the limelight as it has always played that important role of making sure we start our day deliciously; at the same time, fueling us up for a hard day’s work.

At Early Bird Breakfast Club, you can enjoy bacon differently and interestingly, each way
100% yummy. You can start the day with our French Toast with Bacon & Eggs where the sweetness of the french toast is perfect with the salty crunchy slices of bacon that is complemented with creamy scrambled eggs.

For lunch, there is everybody’s favorite Bacon Carbonara best enjoyed with the Bacon Nuggets. This combination is a sure hit with the kids! And if you get hungry in the afternoon, you can have the Bacon & Chicken Panini served with a side of our homemade sweet potato chips. You can also try our Bacon Chicharon* for merienda and bring it home or in the o ce for comfort snacking wherever you may go. Early Bird Breakfast Club has pioneered in transforming the bacon as crispy chicharon packed for snacks and enjoyed in four delightful avors – Original, Garlic Parmesan, Smoked Hickory and Salt & Vinegar.

At the end of the day, you can reward yourself with the ultimate indulgence, our Smoked Bacon Slab! This is a slab of smoked bacon roasted with garlic and thyme, served with garlic rice and poached egg. And if you’re on Keto diet, no worries, just skip the rice and the avors of the slab plus the egg will not make you feel compromised.

With all these delicious dishes, we really feel this is our lucky year. Thanking our lucky stars for you, bacon! And thank you, Early Bird Breakfast Club for these delectable treats!

The Puto Bumbong Story

Puto bumbong is a native Filipino delicacy that usually surfaces during Christmas time, particularly during the start of simbang gabi, where it’s served as a sort of early morning snack or a quick bite of breakfast. What most might not know is that it goes all the way back to the Spanish era, believed to have been brought in from Mexico. This colorful and historic dish has been recreated as a seasonal breakfast specialty by Early Bird Breakfast Club, pioneered almost 4 years ago as a one of a kind puto bumbong pancake concoction that breakfast lovers look forward to the whole year.

Stacked 3 layers high, served with rich coconut whipped cream and topped with melted cheddar cheese and toasted coconut toppings, Early Bird’s signature Puto Bumbong Pancakes are truly something to celebrate the season with. Have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or better yet, have it as dessert, and your tastebuds will warmly greet you a merry Christmas.

Puto Bumbong Pancakes Php 325 – you can order it anytime till January 30, 2018 at our branches in Fort Strip BGC, Eastwood Mall and Century City Mall.

Early Bird Christmas – Gifts for Foodies

It’s that time of the year once again to forget our diets, empty our wallets and partake in merrymaking. While the general air of the season is merry, you have to admit that Christmas doesn’t come without stress. There’s the horrendous traffic to contend with (that unfortunately goes on beyond December) and there is also the stress and hassle of gift-giving. We’re not trying to be a Grinch here but you really do run out of ideas for suitable gifts to give to your friends, immediate family, your boss, the nice manong guard and even your favorite tita.

Food is always a great idea and let’s face it, everyone is a foodie at this day and age. And when it comes packaged in something nice and festive, it scores a lot of points in the perfect gift category.

Early Bird Christmas Jars

Flat Lays and Breakfasts: Blissful Food Styling At The Early Bird Breakfast Club
Who doesn’t want to live in a beautiful world? We all do. Even if it means simply capturing a moment or showing off our favorite things in a pretty way.  I love taking photographs. From it being my career, to capturing my family’s moments or anything in front of me just because that’s the way I want to remember it.

Early Bird Breakfast Club: Reinventing Breakfast When In Manila
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but let’s face it: most of us don’t have the time to prepare a good breakfast and are often stuck with a plain, ordinary breakfast; so much for it being the most important meal of the day.
Are you tired of eating plain breakfast food? Are you looking for something better to start up your day? Then you should give Early Bird Breakfast Club a try! 
First opened in January 2013 with the vision of  changing how people see breakfast, Early Bird Breakfast Club is one of the few restaurants that specialize in making sure that the most important meal of your day is as enjoyable as it should be. 
Early Bird Breakfast Club offers simple, ordinary breakfast food; but you wouldn’t imagine that with the same ingredients, you can have a meal that can taste extraordinary! It only has three branches in the Philippines (for now) and I was lucky enough to be able to eat at their Eastwood branch, the latest branch to open in the Metro.

Restaurant Review: Early Bird Breakfast Club
This cute and dainty restaurant is owned by Kendrick and Ellen Co, and the idea behind the breakfast theme they chose has its roots in Manila’s busy, 24/7 rhythm. Since everybody is constantly on the move, and many people have work in shifts all around the clock, they wanted to provide breakfast any time of the day. They chose warm, vibrant colors for the interior because this is what they want the customers to see when they wake up. As such, it’s a favorite venue for photoshoots and pre-nups for those who want a little more sunshine in their pictures.

If you ask Filipinos what their national dish is, hands down the answer would most likely be adobo. But what particularly is it about this rich and savoury dish that has made it the undisputed number one in our local cuisine? The truth is, there is no one version of adobo that is considered to be the standard and maybe that’s the secret to its success. You can choose how you want it, when you want it. Early Bird Breakfast Club’s own version – the Adobo Sunrise – remains to be a favourite and is quite the bestseller, loved for its succulent strips and flakes generously topped on Breakfast Rice, with your choice of egg to pair it with.


Adobo might traditionally be considered a lunch or dinner offering but you have to admire this dish for being so versatile and such a flavoured favourite that it has been also entered into the halls of Filipino breakfast food everywhere. It’s a dish that you can literally have for breakfast, lunch and dinner, making it the perfect highlight of the Early Bird menu. Our food has always been about coming over for breakfast and staying the rest of the day to enjoy lunch and dinner at any time. And the Adobo Sunrise epitomizes that, hooking your taste buds from sunup to sundown.
