(SPOT.ph) Just when you thought you’ve tried all possible flavors of chicken wings, Wing Zone proves you wrong. The U.S.-based wings joint’s casual atmosphere is perfect for your next group hangout, but there’s nothing laid-back about their well-thought-out flavors and no-frills presentation.
With six choices of protein (chicken wings, boneless bites, strips, drumsticks, beef burger, and chicken sandwich) and at least 15 flavors, it’s impossible not to find something to your liking. “It really depends on what your favorite taste is,” says CEO Johnny Mayani. “There’s a flavor that’s just for you.”
Wheel of Flavors
Their bold flavors are more than just varying heat levels. You can go for either sweet or savory, spicy or not spicy. For indecisive eaters or those feeling adventurous, you can let their Wheel of Flavors decide.
Crinkle Cut Wedge Fries
The rich and sticky honey mustard sauce of Liquid Gold (P195/six wings) pairs well with the addictive Crinkle Cut Wedge Fries (P99/regular) coated in their Cool Ranch dry rub that is so tangy you won’t be able to keep from licking your fingers after every bite!
The Thai Chili (P185/six boneless bites) hits the spot with its right balance of sweet and sour. It also has a sharp Asian kick to it, apparent from its bright chili glaze.
The sweet scent of the Mango Fire (P290/four drumsticks) lulls you into a false sense of security before your tongue is roasted by a lingering heat.
Their unconventional flavors haven’t overshadowed the traditional Buffalo Bliss (P195/six wings). If that zesty dressing doesn’t give you a strong jolt, there are the Hotshot and Nuclear Habanero flavors, sure to wake up your taste buds from just a whiff of the vinegar.
Fifteen flavors may seem like a lot, but Wing Zone isn’t done just yet. They’re working to create more flavors like adobo and nori to satisfy some more unconventional cravings. But with witty names like Tokyo Dragon and Blackened Voodoo, it’s hard to resist trying them all.
