Wingporium www.wingporium.ca 416-255-6464 open every day lunch – ‘til the cook shuts off the fryers
They have 88 flavours of fresh, never frozen wings. To start the process you have to decide on a few things; naked or dusted, select a category (dry, mild, medium, hot, scorpion kiss or black mamba), and have them finished on the grill for a buck if you please. So many choices, it’s almost frustrating, so I will let you in on a couple of my favorite combinations. I like dry roasted garlic finished on the grill with a side of honey garlic, dry dill pickle, dry garlic garlic with a side of honey/hot, or simply hot finished on the grill; finishing on the grill adds great B.B.Q flavour and those grill marks crisp up the juicy skin – extraordinary! They have a wall of flame that keeps score of how many scorpion kiss or black mamba wings one can eat before catching fire; my advice, stay far, far away. I love veggies and dip and boy do they have a lot of sour cream based dips. I order the veggies with a ranch, garlic dill and French onion dip as an appetizer with garlic bread topped with cheese and a crunchy seasoning that makes me sequel with pleasure. Potato wedges are wonderful arm candy for your wings if you feel like a starch, with your protein; sprinkled with savory garlic, I hear wedding bells. The food is always piping hot to touch, so watch yourself. I don’t think I’ve had the same waitress twice but service is always efficient. It can sometimes seem a little chilly, the lights could be dimmed, and lacking that ambiance of your local bar – a meritorious effort.
Beer is the number one seller; they have a fully stocked bar as well. The servers are all attractive young ladies, on the ball, and very polite. I’ve been to a few places where I’ve been served by waitresses who think I’m doing them a favour by sitting in their section, and the outcome hasn’t been pleasant.
Wingporium is a unique place and I urge you to check it out.
