Well I have been totally slacking on my blog for you and them tasty wings, but I have massive updates and reviews for you. You ready… can you take the heat? HOT HOT HOT HOT WINGS (sing it out, it sounds better).
Boom. Wing time…
Lets talk about Wingmasters:
This little joint is in beautiful Ballard right off 24th. Looks like a dive and is, but as we have found out some dives have great grub. Plus cold brews. So into the bar…
Its noon, lunch for me and my copilot. Only one old and crusty belled up to the bar. News on most of the tubes, but a couple have ESPN with subtitles. No worries, we are here for the wings. Good thing, because the bar back tells us that is all they serve for lunch. Then she shows us the wall. This thing has options, I’m not talking about nice menu, lots of stuff. I’m talking about the McDonald’s of Wings. There must have been 7 to 10 options of sauces and combo and the strangest thing I have seen on this wingquest. Pork.
Well the copiolt and I are different people but we both love wings, looks like we got to make some hard choices and play some rochambo. 6 Origionals, 6 Classic Buffalo, & 3 Pork wings with the sweet & spicy.
Now to play a little pinball while we wait. $0.50 and we are still playing when the wings come. Nothing special for display, just the wing-loveness.
I have to try the pork wings first. They look like ribs with a little bit of meat taken off so you can hold them like a drumstick. Damn, these things are good – real good. I do like pork. The sauce, is more like a hawaain BBQ then the traditional wing sauce. Both the copiolit and I agree that next time we need hot and not so sweet. They are PORK… Please try them with any sauce, worth the drive and the experence.
Down to why you read this site. Chicken wings, well these are. I cant say they are great, but they are good. They have issues but who doesn’t. Too small is my first impression. Just low on the meat and tiny. I guess that could be good being that they might not have as many hormones in them but, come on I had 3 freeks out of my 6. When I say freaks I mean the little half wings that are broken and kinda gross. The sauces… GREAT. Yeah I said it. They are really good. A bit homemade and a bit of store bought. We only tried two types… there are like 7. I say go hot and work your way down. Ok wings, great sauce, not to bad for a lunch date.
Score: Solid 4
I’ll be back I need to try some more sauces plus the little porkers are bomb.
Get it done. Pork wings @ Wingmasters.
