Wings Deliver a World of Flavor

Thursday Oct 27, 2016

Chicken wings come in many different flavors that can be savory, spicy or even sweet. Americans consume upwards of 27 billion wings every year. Though traditional Buffalo sauce reigns, sauces and dry rubs have become more experimental and flavorful.

At Hungry Howie's, we like to spice it up with Original Howie Wings and Boneless Howie Wings in a variety of flavors. We have a deep appreciation for all the different wings offered around the world. The appreciation runs so deep that we want to share with you some of the most interesting wing flavors around the globe.

Ayam Goreng Kuning – Indonesian-Style Wings

These aromatic yellow wings are first marinated in tamarind and spices like coriander, turmeric and cayenne before taking a warm bath in coconut water and bay leaves. After their warm, 45-60 minute bath, they are fried up until crispy. Get the full recipe on Saveur.

Harissa Hot Wings

Harissa is a North African paste made of chilies and garlic. Add in some butter, lime zest and juice, and you'll be ready to make some delicious wings.*

Al Pastor Wings

Al Pastor's distinct flavor comes from a mixture of chilies and citrus and is most often used in foods from Mexico. However, if you're lucky you might actually come across Al Pastor seasoning at your local international supermarket. All that is required to make the wings is the seasoning, homemade or store bought, and wings. Most recipes call for these to be oven-baked as there is real "sauce" to coat them with after frying.**

Truffalo Wings

Truffles are fungi that are highly sought after in Europe and the Middle East. Real truffles can be very hard to come by and very expensive. Using truffle oil, along with honey and hot sauce, can help you create a truffle glaze. The glaze will provide a sharp taste, as truffles on their own can be very pungent.***

Italian-Inspired Wings

While parmesan wings are available for delivery from some places, it really doesn't compare to Italian-inspired wings that feature fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano, parsley, oregano and crushed garlic. These tangy wings are a far cry from the parmesan-smothered wings usually served at most restaurants or for wings delivery.

When you're tastebuds are craving a kick, get wings delivery on the fly - Hungry Howie's has a globe of flavors, too. Try our Asian chicken wings or get savory with southern BBQ, or spice it up with traditional Buffalo or sriracha hot wings.
