Happy National Chicken Wing day
On a recent episode of a Food Network show that focuses on Asian Cuisine (we're fans of food from every region) the host highlighted that Chicken Wings are a favourite finger food around the globe, and every region has their own spin on just how they like them. National Chicken Wing Day...(no seriously...this is really a thing...click here if you don't believe it) is celebrated annually on July 29th so we thought we'd highlight just a few places who to wing-it well, here in Bermuda.
When it comes to wings, Rosa's has been in the game for some time now, selling a variety of wings ranging from mild to insanely hot. Probably their most popular wing offering are the sticky, crispy and tasty Honey Garlic Wings. Their recent menu change now includes an Indian Butter Masala Flavour....a rarely (if ever) seen style that fans of Indian Cuisine might want to experiment with.
Docksiders, their neighbours below the steps, serve up their Honey Barbecue Wings which climbs the spicy scale, from mild to nuclear. Can't say we've been tempted to eat anything deemed 'nuclear' but for their regular hot wings... Dockies has nailed the sweet sticky, saucy and spicy combination.
Another place that has it right when it comes to spice is the Swizzle Inn. If you are a fan of the traditional Buffalo Style Wings, put these on your list to try. Their tart and tangy hot sauce only gets better when you ask for more buffalo sauce on the side.
Saving a new found favourite for last, Dae 'n' Night Catering started out filling orders via social media for her range of never before seen flavoured wings every Wednesday. She quickly gained a following of fans and loyal supporters of what became known as Wild Wing Wednesday...so much support in fact, it enabled her to open a take-out location by the same name. Boneless or traditional wings are served with an array of sauces. The Sweet Buffalo and Caribbean Breeze made us instant fans. Not just flavourful but FLAVOUR-FULL. Served with 'you-need-a-lot-of-napkin' amounts of sauce, celery sticks and a bleu cheese dressing that is unlike any other (...don't know what they're doing to the dressing there, but is something special) WWW is just doing wings right.
Once upon a time Wings were the snack that Super Bowl Parties were made of. Now, practically every restaurant from take out to high-end has their own spin on chicken wings.
