Burning taste buds at Flaming Wings

After reading reviews made by fellow Club members namely Jane, Rowena and Richard, who all had nothing but raves about Flaming Wings, Paul and I knew that we have to schedule a visit to try it SOON.

A couple of weeks after the Club went, we scheduled to have a casual dinner date in this popular buffalo wings spot located right at the heart of Katipunan Avenue.

We arrived a little past 7 on a Saturday night and the place was jam-packed! Luckily, we found our little table for two and immediately scanned the menu. We zeroed in on the buffalo wings and decided to get the 5 pcs. basket (Php. 235). After learning from my fellow bloggers that 5 pieces buffalo wings means 10 cuts, we requested the server to split this into two different sauces -- Smokey BBQ and Mild n' Sweet.

Paul's a huge fan of barbecue flavored dishes and this was his first choice upon reading the menu. He paired this with Ranch dip which I think was a perfect choice. We ate this with gusto and enjoyed every single bite of it. I love the fact that it wasn't spicy at all. What makes Flaming Wing's buffalo wings delicious was that it has a very tender meat covered with deep-fried crispy coating. It was delicious even without the dip.

The other half of our buffalo wings came in a Mild N' Sweet Sauce paired with Bleu Cheese Dip. This one has a mix of sweet, spicy and sour flavor that is closer to the original buffalo wings taste. This is perfect for the faint of heart.

Together with the wings, we ordered some Pomme Frites (Php. 38) a.k.a. French Fries that's served in a paper cone and a saucer of Honey Mustard, our choice of dip. There was really nothing spectacular about the fries and we both find it a bit small compared to the long-cut fries that we both love. The honey mustard sauce lacks the sweetness that we were both looking for.

Lastly, we also ordered Spaghetti Bolognese (Php. 108) which was also pretty ordinary. I feel that it lacks the rich tomato-meaty taste similar to the good ol' spaghetti that we've grown accustomed to.

The highlight of our meal was definitely the buffalo wings and surveying the tables around us, the dessert seems to be a must-try where I noticed that everyone would cap their meal with a plate of Wicked Oreos or the Oreo Sundae. We were planning to have dessert elsewhere thus we intentionally skipped ordering any of their desserts during this particular visit. Will definitely make a mental note to try this next time.

As we enjoyed our buffalo wings, we watch families and students come and go. Students would order the Wings Meal that consists of 2 pieces Chicken Wings, Rice and Drinks while families would share on a basket of their mouth-watering wings and of course their famous dessert.

I'm currently craving for Flaming Wing's BBQ wings as I write this entry. I will definitely be back SOON!
