Tried out one of the Top 10 Best Wings in Metro Manila to see if they really are worthy to be in the top 10. I must say, for me, theirs is one of the best I have tasted.
Ordered 12 pieces of wings with 3 classic flavors:
– Manila Wings (signature flavor): has this Pinoy barbecue-ish flavor with a mild, spicy kick. Not overpowering.
– Sili Wings (their take on the buffalo sauce): hot, tangy, and a little sour, but still hits the spot!
– Calamansi Pepper (their take on lime/lemon pepper): citrusy, a little sweet, perhaps because of the ripeness of the calamansi used that time.
I like how the flavors seep into the meat, not only on the outside, but the crispiness of the chicken remains. Overall, though quite small, the wings are delicious, crispy, juicy, and flavorful.
I just got quite sad about the poutine. The gravy tasted almost perfect, only if it is not too salty. I tried mixing it with the wings’ sauces but its saltiness is just too overpowering to be masked by another flavor. I hope they’d do something about it.
Their lady who took our order was also pleasant and attentive.
For the interiors, maybe they just need to be more consistent with the theme. Since its name has “Manila” in it, I guess they should just stick to putting up local movie posters to make it more consistent instead of the vintage American photos as fillers.
