ION buffalo wings

I am something of a chicken wing aficionado. I love good Buffalo Wings – I grew up on them and continue to love them to this day. When I first moved to South Africa, it was impossible to find any decent wings, so I’d make my own with Frank’s hot sauce that I’d bring back from the US of A. While I still do so, with wonderful effects, I no longer need to thanks to Rocomamas, who make their own fantastic Buffalo Wings with ranch sauce.

What is it about Buffalo wings that makes them so appealing? I love the heat when it is enough to be experienced without causing any form of discomfort. Combine that with crispy skin, moist meat and cooling, tangy ranch dressing and there is little else I need. Obviously, I still usually end up ordering a burger, too, but there are never enough wings.

    Chicken wings can gits. Overhyped skin & bone with barely a thimble-full of edible meat.

      What do you know about “edible meat” ? xD

      It’s more economical to just cook the sauce for a bit and eat that.

    Wow, I remember phoning a number to get the time. One of the few ways before cellphones and pcs that you could get an “accurate” time to set your watch.

    Yeah sorry, wings are near the bottom of my “to eat” list.

    To each their own I guess. 🙂

      Yeah, I’m not a fan of wings either, but then in general I’m not a fan of chicken.

    WINGS! Okay I like them… But only because I like nibbling of bones!

    I agree. Rocomamas burgers are ok, but not brilliant, the ‘wings’ however, are magnificent.

    Epic basting, very, very decent size, ok-ish priced
