On my second night in Toronto, I visited a well-liked brewpub located in the old "Distillery District" by the name of Mill Street Brew Pub. I was pleased to find IPA on cask draught, and a ESB regular draft option available. As a starter, I had to try the wings. Mill Street offers 3 levels of hot wings, plus a "Honey Garlic" and a "Soya Ginger." Speaking with the bartender, he told me the hot wings were your standard buffalo wings – a.k.a. Franks and margarine – so I had to choose between the Honey Garlic and Soya Ginger. I really wanted to try both, but the minimum order for a flavor of wings is 10. I was craving a soy based sauce after the previous night’s wings, so I went with the Soya Ginger.
The sauce didn’t disappoint at all, with plenty of flavor and a nice glaze-like sauce. I think I detected some Chinese Five Spice in it. They were particularly large wings, and were also breaded, which is perhaps "the thing to do" in Toronto? However, like the other wings in Toronto, non-breaded wings with more sauce would have been better, but also like the previous night’s, these hardly disappointed.
RATING: 4 out 5 Stars.
