Perhaps one of the best things, if not THE best thing, about my son going to school in Hayes Valley is the school’s proximity to Wing Wings. It’s literally on my way to, and more importantly, back from school (when it’s open). All summer, I would do a drive-by Wing Wings and do a pick-up, never really having to choose which type of wing I wanted because I was there so often (I prefer Angry Korean, Wing Wing and Buffalo –which is better than what you’re thinking, because this Buffalo actually has some real heat — not that crappy throw some hot sauce the last minute heat, but some breathable heat).
Wing Wings is a newcomer from a former Little Skillet man, and this man Christian knows how to do the chicken dance. His wings are dee-lect-uhh-ble. Here’s a beauty shot, and then the write-up I did for HeardAbout.
The Wing Wing sauced chicken wings at namesake Wing Wings in Lower Haight gives you a little sweet, a little spice and a whole lot of succulence. Bite into one of these babies and licking your fingers will count as your dessert.
The brainchild of Christian Ciscle, formerly of Little Skillet, newcomer Wing Wings celebrates the chicken wing. And folks, this chicken wing party is a beautiful – and tasty – thing. While Wing Wings offers eight iterations of chicken wing sauces (including Angry Korean, Buffalo and Sweet Mustard), do not miss out on the signature Wing Wing. The Wing Wing elevates a mere chicken wing into a pleasurable concoction of savory, sweet, spicy and, of course, juicy. The wings are made to order, so you can expect steaming hot, freshly-crisped, and copiously-sauced wings to slurp, gnaw, and munch to your heart’s content.
The jamming music and super amiable service will greet you day or night (till 2am on weekends). Whether you choose to sit at a countertop stools or take out, the only thing you’ll really need to enjoy your wings is a napkin.
On the Side:
Don’t forget add-ons like chicharrones, garlic, chilies and bacon or sides like Old Bay seasoned fries, biscuits and fried plantains. And if you like to make a mess by yourself, then you’re in luck — Wing Wings now delivers to surrounding neighborhoods.
