Contrary to popular belief, Buffalo wings are not made from the actual buffalo meat; they are merely flavored like the bison's prolific tears. Commiserate in every flavor imaginable 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 in an airline themed setting. The wing-laden menu allows bipedal boys and girls to gauge their stomach size and choose anywhere from the manageable five wings ($4 or $5.50 with a combo) to the heftier fifteen piece ($8.99 or $12 with a combo) all the way to the 100 or 1000 flock size needed to conquer the cloud colonies. Wings are available fried, feathered, or grilled ($1.50 surcharge for grilled) in thirty-four flavors such as the Jamaican rum barbeque, the Chinese sweet and spicy plum, and the Italian tomato basil pesto. Nine countries make a pact to share air space spice offerings, creating a mélange of palate pleasing options. Sauce-shunning patrons find solace in marine menu items such as 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.
