Find the Best Chicken Wings in Victoria

Do you want the best chicken wings right now?

Sometimes you just feel like chicken wings and while you can pretty much get them anywhere, they are definitely not all created equal! So, what makes the perfect  wing? Truth is, it’s like asking what makes the perfect beer, or the perfect cheese – it’s really up to individual preference. 

Most people though, do tend to agree that wings should have a nice crisp exterior, be plump, juicy, cooked thoroughly and sauced just right. 

Buffalo, New York is credited as the home of the hot wing – hence the name buffalo wings. Authentic buffalo wings are deep fried with no coating and then tossed in a hot sauce. Wings have evolved from something born in the East and found only in pubs to a staple found on almost every restaurant menu. They are battered, breaded and coated in as many types of sauces as chefs can dream up with popular options being hot sauces, BBQ and honey garlic.
