Contrary to popular belief, buffalo wings are not actually made from buffalo meat—they are merely flavored with the bison's prolific tears. Bask in the outpourings of emotive animals with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at Wings Around the World.
Wings Around the World whisks taste buds away on an intercontinental tour, puddle-jumping oceans of scintillating sauces within an airline-themed setting. The wing-laden menu allows aeronauts to gauge their stomach's depths and choose meal sizes from the manageable five-wings dish ($4 or $5.50 as part of a combo) or heftier 15-piece ($8.99 or $12 as part of a combo), all the way to the 100- or 1,000-piece flock needed to bait rogue herds of office workers. Enjoy meaty delicacies fried, feathered, or grilled ($1.50 surcharge for grilled), in 34 flavors, such as the jamaican rum barbecue, the chinese sweet-and-spicy plum, and the italian tomato-basil pesto. Nine countries coalesce to offer spices, creating a global mélange of palate-pleasing options, much like an edible World Cup tournament. Sauce-shunning patrons can find solace in marine menu items, including the catfish combo ($6.50), and the variety of sides that flesh out the restaurant's edible offerings.
Wings Around the World
Wings Around the World seasons chicken wings with more than 40 flavors modeled after the national cuisine of nine countries, such as Jamaica, Greece, and China. Canadian wings drip maple mixings and whisper polite greetings, and jalapeños and chipotle give Mexican wings added kick. The commercial airline-themed restaurant also takes to the sea, feeding hungry travelers tilapia, catfish, perch, and cod dishes. Wings Around the World provides takeout fare, is open seven days a week, and feeds late-night diners until 5 a.m. on Saturdays.
