First Bite: Wing Zone

Wings has been one of the staple comfort food for many. With most wings shops offering several flavors, it would be hard to get tired of munching on these goodies. And one of the most recent additions to the list is Wing Zone. 

Hello, Wing Zone
Wing Zone is an Atlanta-based American food chain founded Matt Friedman and Adam Scott, back in 1991 when they were still studying at the University of Florida. With their buffalo wings' immense popularity within their fraternity, they decided to open two stores in Gainsville, Florida two years later. Eventually, it expanded to Latin America and Central America. And in 2018, it found home in Manila which is now up to five branches in the city. 
We were invited to a sneak peek of Wing Zone's latest offerings for Lent. While waiting for it, R and I decided to try one of its chicken dishes given that we're both first timers here. 
We decided to go with Strips (PHP190, 5 strips, 1 flavor | PHP295, 8 strips, 1 flavor | PHP365, 10 strips, 2 flavors) with Liquid Gold and Garlic Parm as dips or flavors. For drinks, we got Iced Tea and Lemonade (PHP50, regular | PHP60, large).
Each strip was beautifully battered and each bite had that wonderful contrast between crunchy and juicy. 
If you love zesty dips, Garlic Parm is for you. The taste of buffalo sauce overpowered garlic and parmesan though. For those who want to play it safe, go for Liquid Gold which is your usual honey mustard sauce. 
It wasn't long before the new products were served and it's highlighting one item in particular: fish fillet
Available as Fish & Rice (PHP210), Fish Burger (PHP240, comes with chips), Fish & Wedges (PHP230) and Fish & Chips (PHP230), these are good alternatives for those who observe no meat meals during Lent. (You could also opt to add PHP30 for a glass of Lemonade or Iced Tea.)
Fish Burger is great for those who want something easy to grab. You could also customize this by choosing which sauce to go with your burger. We tried it with Liquid Gold and I found the sauce to be a bit too strong that it masked the taste of the fillet. I'd most likely ask for the sauce on the side next time. 
Between Fish & Chips and Fish & Wedges, I'd go with the former. Wing Zone's chips definitely won me over! Crisp and flavorful, I wish they have to go bags of this! (Or perhaps they do?)
The fish fillet meals are pocket friendly and are quite filling. But it would be so much better if Wing Zone offers it with tartar as it's the best sauce to go with fish fillet. 

Wing Zone is located at 2nd Floor, Atrium, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.
