Marinted in fish sauce, deep fried, tossed in caramelized Phu Quoc fish sauce, fried garlic, chili, homemade mixed pickles. $10 NZD
PokPok Thai Restaurant, Auckland NZ
Only 4 wings?! How lame. And the wings weren’t even good. They were small, dry on the inside, and greasy on the outside. Again, so lame.
White Szechuan pepper, sugar dust, sweet chile lime sauce, greens, toasted cashews, Maytag blue cheese. $13
The Beauty Shop Restaurant, Memphis TN
Mmm, these were so tasty! I loved the sauce on the chicken wings and the toppings were great too. I don’t think I’ve ever had chicken wings and watermelon together, but the combo was great. The wings were also super large so this dish was substantial.
Happy hour $7.95
Houlihan’s, Herndon VA
I loved that these wings were SO saucy, but they just weren’t very good. They were super dry and old tasting – liked they’d been frozen for a really long time. Ugh, that’s what I get for eating cheap happy hour food!
Served with ranch dressing, celery, carrots. 10 wings $9.50
Red Hot & Blue, Herndon VA
Apparently this place has closed since my visit. I’m not surprised. The food was marginal. I’m not even sure why they called these chicken wings “jumbo” since they were fairly small. They were also over-cooked and dry. The bartender was friendly though.
Bleu cheese dipping sauce. $10
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA
These were pretty good! I liked the saucy glaze, and bleu cheese is always preferable over ranch for me! Hehe!
Served with ranch dressing, carrots and celery. 6 pieces $8.95
Harvey’s, San Francisco CA
I suppose anything covered in buffalo wing sauce can’t be that bad. These were still on the dry side though, but I didn’t expect much at Harvey’s…
Mixed chicken (wings and boneless) with topped with sesame seeds, almond, and parsley. Served with kimchi fried rice balls with bacon, topped with Parmesan cheese, creamy sriracha, sour cream, and parsley flakes. Combo $13.75
Kokio Republic, San Francisco CA
I love these wings and fried kimchi balls because they just burst with flavor. But I can’t talk to anyone for the rest of the day because they are SO garlicky, lol! It’s also a great value since I really can’t eat these all in one sitting.
Oven roasted wings with a buffalo wing sauce. $6
Little Caesars, Palm Springs CA
These were ok. I liked that they were oven roasted instead of deep fried, but they didn’t have a great buffalo flavor. They were also very small.
Fried chicken wings tossed in sweet and spicy house sauce. $9.50
Stone Korean Kitchen, San Francisco CA
The flavor of these wings was good, but they were a bit over-fried and therefore dry. They were pretty difficult to bite through. I liked the sticky house sauce though.
2 pieces ¥12
KFC, Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG)
I was starving after my flight from Seoul, so I had to grab a quick snack before boarding the speed train into Shanghai. KFC was conveniently located on the way to the train, so I decided to have a couple wings. These were just like the ones in the States in both texture and taste. It was nice to eat something familiar even though it was fast food.
Topped with sesame seeds, almond, and parsley. 6 pieces $8.25
Kokio Republic, San Francisco CA
Ugh, I’m in love with Kokio chicken wings. They’re one of the stickiest, tastiest wings I’ve had in a while. And they’re cooked in a food truck even! Mmm…
Served with ranch dressing. Happy hour $5
Sliderbar, San Francisco CA
These were good, but they were on the small side and not very meaty. I liked their buffalo sauce though and it’s a great happy hour price.
