SF Weekly's Description
Wing Wings has elevated buffalo wings, the often-mediocre bar snack, into a culinary delicacy, turning out fried-to-order chicken wings with eight intriguing sauces from its tiny storefront in the Lower Haight. You can eat in the small cafe -- plenty of the neighborhood's young, hip residents crouch on stools at the two wooden counters along the walls, focused on their baskets of saucy wings with tunnel-vision intensity. Best of all, however, they'll deliver them to your door in time for the game. Get the signature Wings Wings sauce, a dark, sticky, soy-and-molasses-based concoction fortified with chile, ginger, garlic, and rice vinegar that manages to be both sweet and spicy, and totally craveable. Another Asian-inspired sauce, the Angry Korean chile paste, is a cult favorite. Don't leave without the Southern biscuits; our favorite is the sweet/savory brown sugar and black pepper version. Sides like dill potato salad, carrot- and pickle-laced macaroni salad, and vinegar-based coleslaw are fine, if unmemorable.
