“I have the right to life, liberty and chicken wings!” comedienne Mindy Kaling had once announced, and we could not agree more. What’s better than a good plate of chicken wings to soak up those pint(s) of beer on a night out? From a unique chipotle sauce to the classic BBQ coating, we give you the lowdown on our favourite wings in town. We dare you not to drool!
Sweet, Smokey Or Fiery: Chicken Wings You Need To Sink Your Teeth Into
Imagine chicken wings slathered in fiery peri-peri masala and then grilled in a tandoor. The result is a crisp, slightly charred at the edges, juicy pieces of chicken, which are so good that we feel like ordering seconds and thirds. That, in a nutshell, are the fantastic Peri Peri Chicken Wings at Tayabb’s.
Ask any young Bangalorean for their Tuesday afternoon plans and they’re bound to reply with two simple words: Plan B. Indeed, this joint (which has three functioning outlets in the city) has become a staple for its amazing wings-and-beer offers. From a tangy Mango Heat, spicy Firecracker to a cooling Creamy Buffalo, the sheer variety in sauces will keep even the finicky foodies satisfied. And if you’re feeling particularly adventurous with spice, might we recommend the ABS sauce to douse your wings with?
Arbor Brewing Company
Apart from their craft beers which we love and have raved about here, we are also fans of Arbor’s chicken wings. We love the version, which comes doused with smoky barbecue sauce and has a blue cheese dressing. Order in half or a full dozen, or even a bucket if you're with pals and enjoy your cold one as you fly to satisfaction with these wings.
Besides the Tennessee wings that have us drooling, Social Offline has our attention for another reason: their Death Wings challenge. Consider yourself a master of spice and heat? They’re going to make you an offer you can’t refuse! Their Death Wings are a death warrant as they're a warehouse of the most vicious spices. Finish a plate of their Death Wings single-handedly and you can win a free glass of lemonade. Even if you can’t, worry not – water’s on the house.
The Open Box
Wings lovers everywhere, your time has finally come! The Open Box brings together two favourites — wings and 65 sauce. How we love the heat of the sauce. Pair them with one of quirky cocktails here (my pick is the Drip Me Tight) for best results. Perfect for those die-hard Indian souls.
Miller’s 46 Steak House And Bar
Ah! Dear ol’ Millers is an old haunt of most Bangaloreans. Located in Vasanth Nagar, meat lovers throng to the restaurant for its salivating steaks. They even have highly-acclaimed wings that come in an assortment of sauces. Is mild your style? They’ve got you covered. Love a spice-laden treat? The hot wings are recommended. Either way, the wings at Millers are (dare we say?) killer.
Hard Rock Café
The wings here at Hard Rock Cafe are slow-roasted to perfection and come in two sauces, the classic Buffalo sauce or the Barbeque sauce. Served with carrots, cucumbers and a blue cheese dip, these wings up their game from being mere appetizers to a filling snack.
Connie’s Restaurant And Steakhouse
The residents of Kamanahalli (or ‘Kamanhattan’ as we call it) swear by Connie’s chicken wings. Their servings are generous (starting with half a dozen to 15 pieces a plate) which means that even the most gluttonous foodie is bound to meet their match at Connie’s. The sauces are winners here, with the slightly sweeter Smoked Honey BBQ or the Connie's Special BBQ. To make the wings fly, they don't give it Red Bull, they work with a spicy Jack Daniels sauce. It’s no wonder they’ve declared themselves the “Place to Meet for Meat”.
The Only Place
This iconic restaurant never seems to wane in popularity. They’re known for their burgers and steaks, but let’s be honest, their wings are also a winner. Expect no frills here — The Only Place is all about honest, flavoursome food. Thus, their (sizeable) wings are generously coated in a classic BBQ sauce. Get your plate with a side of nostalgia here!
