Head straight to Buffalo Wings N’ Things, of course! Here, everyone in the fam and barkada will find something to like.￼
Deep-frying chicken wings is rooted in Southern cooking but cooking them in peppery sauces started in Buffalo, New York in 1964. A bar owner in the area decided to cook leftover wings in hot sauce as a snack for her son and his friends. Served with celery slices and bleu cheese, it was a hit among the guys and the rest, as they say, is history.
Buffalo Wings N’ Things enriches its buffalo wings by having eleven savory flavors and seven spicy ones for its customers to choose from, along with tasty add-ons that chicken lovers can enjoy along with their Buffalo Wings.
While out on my lunch break with my office buddies (ten people in total!), we decided to maximize our budgets while sating our hunger by getting Grand Slam bundles of Buffalo Wings, and, well, things:
Grand Slam 6 (Php688 Good for 4). 8 pcs Champion Buffalo Wings, 8 pcs Signature Chicken Tenders,Bacon & Cheese Fries, steamed rice (we added Php98 for iced tea.
Grand Slam 4 (Php988 Good for 6). 12 pcs Champion Buffalo Wings, 12 pcs Signature Chicken Tenders, Chili n’ Cheese Nachos, steamed rice (we added Php138 for iced tea.
With these bundles, we were able to enjoy these Buffalo Wings flavors:
Honey BBQ. Southern BBQ flavor blended with sweet honey.
Creamy Salted Egg. Rich and creamy version of the regional favorite.
Chipotle Lime. Creamy smoked Chipotle sauce enhanced with the tanginess of freshly squeezed lime juice.
Garlic Parmesan. A blend of garlic butter sauce and real Parmesan cheese.
New York’s Finest. Medium heat Buffalo Wing sauce.
Thanks to the bundles, our meal amounted to just a little Php200 per person!
How’s that for value for money?
