The chicken wing is, for me, the best part of the entire chicken; it’s juicy, it gets crispy and it’s flavour central. Wings of Glory is not exactly a new edition to the South Melbourne food scene, they first opened their doors about a year ago. My first visit was not memorable but they had only been open for a couple of days then and for the love of chicken wings, these guys deserved a second try and I was not disappointed this second time around.
How good do they look all gleaming in the light with the hot sauce glaze? And though they might be saucy, they still retained a good crunch.
If you’re one that can’t stand meat on bones, first of all we can’t be friends but good news is that they do offer a juicy boneless variety that I would gladly devour by the bucket load.
Their flavour variety is plentiful including Smokin’ Gun BBQ, Chilli Fla-Mango and three stages of chilli buffalo style wing, but my best picks have to be lemony pepper and Cajun Cho.
I love accompaniments and condiments, although in this case, I’ll be a “BUCKET of wings” kind of girl because I’m a glutton and no room is to be wasted on non chicken wings, but I digress. These hand cut fries were crispy and so well seasoned, it was a salt lick dream. They also offer an array of healthy salads that include quinoa and couscous to help you balance out your meal.
Ice cream dogs are a thing and it’s glorious. Honeycomb, choc-oreo or strawberry bliss flavour over creamy ice cream, stuffed in a crunchy fried dough bun. Save room for this one.
During the tasting, they introduced The Diemans Wing Roulette for those who dared to tempt fate. There were 5 ‘stinger wings’ hidden in the platter, and although my wing was spicy, I don’t think it was one of the fury wings.
If you’re feeling lucky and you’d like to put your tastebuds to the test, they have The FURY challenge. Attempt twelve super hot fury wings in four minutes to claim a spot on their ‘Eat for Glory’ wall. Would you do it?
