When you’re a wing lover, some wings stay in your memory for a while as being exceptional. A few years ago I went to the Sunset Grill & Tap and I still remembered those wings. They had a particularly sweet taste that was reminiscent of fresh peppers and other flavors.
So I was anxious to try them again while in Boston last Saturday for a little day trip to the New England Aquarium. The Sunset is best known for its formidable beer selection – 112 on tap and 100’s more in bottles. A beer lover’s dream come true. But the food is pretty impressive too. Especially the wings…
These are great wings. A little nontraditional in their recipe, but hot, saucy, spicy, and perfectly cooked. The wings are average size and cooked to an ideal doneness and crispiness. There’s also a good serving of them as well.
However, its the sauce that makes the difference here. The sauce is thick and flavorful. There’s a lot more going on in here than margarine and Red Hot. There’s flecks of peppers visible in the sauce and it has a flavor that is somewhat similar to that of Manwich, but I mean that in the best way possible. The heat provides a nice steady burn that some might find a bit too hot (I got their original "Subatomic" style. I would imagine that "Atomic" is only for the masochistic), but I found perfect. I was soaking up the sauce with anything I could use to soak it up with.
RATING: 5 out of 5 stars!!
