Moving to another country made me realize how strong the American and Spanish influences have been to the Philippines. Actually, it was more on the food for me. Once in a while, I'd crave for a delicious llanera of Paella Negra or for some good juicy burgers and wings. Singapore is a truly a food mecca but I got to admit that having all these numerous choices around makes it harder to choose and look for the best. When it comes to wings though, nothing beans enjoying crispy deep-fried chicken and coated with a wide array for flavors.
What made this visit possible was a Facebook contest conducted one of my favourite food blogger Daniel of Daniel Food Diary. I've been following his blog ever since I've moved here and I was really excited to be one of the winners who'll be part of his Wingstop party. Finally, I'll get the chance to meet him. *fan girl mode on*
Daniel sure knows how to throw a party! Just look at all the delicious wings and sides that we were all able to sample today:
Wingstop's best-selling flavour! The menu has two chilies beside it so I was initially hesitant to give it a try. After one bite, it's either my tolerance for spicy food has seriously increased or the rub wasn't too spicy as expected. Either way, I enjoyed this one and would definitely go back for more.
This is the one flavour that's unique to Singapore. By the way, did you know that this branch in Bedok Mall is the first ever Wingstop store in the entire South East Asia? I hope they'll expand around Singapore soon and will eventually head over to the Philippines too. Pretty please?!
The Oriental Soy had a savory taste which we detected came from a hoisin sauce-base. Some of our tablemates commented that it tastes like Peking Duck. Well, it was a bit too salty for me but Paul loved it!
For those who wants a bit of citrus-y flavour then the Lemon Pepper is for you! It had a sweet, tangy flavour that even the little ones will love. We had it in both boned and boneless (fillet) version and of course, I prefer it minus the bone for easier consumption. Yum yum!
