Crazy Wings, Chinatown
Americans have their famous Buffalo Wings,
and asians have their Crazy Wings.
Crazy Wings is a franchise food chain in Asia and with its success, the first Crazy Wings store opened in Dixon St, Chinatown. If you’ve never heard of it before (like myself) its a great place with grilled meat and seafood for an extremely affordable price.
When I first heard of Crazy Wings, I instantly knew they would serve up some super hot wings that would blow my mouth away and make my eyes swell with tears and that’s exactly what it done when I came here randomly for the first time (shamefully I forgot to bring my camera that night). Their wings are their specialties which also has a selection catered for those who aren’t to good with spicy, chili or mild food.
Skewers don’t come in diverse meats. For example there’s no pork or beef on the menu so don’t expect to get pork on skewers or beef cubes. They do have fish (actual whole fish) ox tongue and gizzards for those who love a bit of offal. Skewers are under $5 (from memory its about $2-$3 for 3 skewers???) and their additional food is under $10! The prices are very reasonable so its an offer you can’t complain about!
You have to order the prune drink its soo yummy (not too sweet), and it provides a balance with the hot and spicy dishes. The bottle is so cute I took it home =P
Garlic sauce seaweed salad
Cold seaweed salad is refreshing when consuming a lot of protein and lack of greens. The seaweed taste is faintly prominent so if your not good with eating seaweed then maybe this isn’t for you. The chili gives it a nice bite to the tongue (i love chili).
Chicken candy. Crunchy caramalised edges, with the outer coating of a sweet honey glaze that makes you want to lick your fingers when done.
First time I came here (B) requested we get lamb. I’ve said this before that i’m not a huge lamb person but they were actually quite nice. The pieces of fat wedged between each meat, serves a great purpose as the lamb absorbs the moisture and becomes very juicy and flavoursome.
Herbed infused wings for those who aren’t too keen on mild or spicy wings. I like to think this is a dish for wimps who can’t handle the heat. This is definitely one for those who want to stay on the safe side as you can’t go wrong with original.
BBQ fried rice
Lap Cheong! (Chinese Sausage) Finally a place that actually cuts diagonal slithers and fries them up until they’re caramalised! I really enjoyed this fried rice. I’ve tried their prawn fried rice before which was simple yet effective when chomping on flaming wings.
Despite the frozen vegetables, the lap cheong sure did this justice. Like I said before, you can’t complain about this dish as its a complete bargain and its served in a wooden bucket that is bound to make anyone full and make the girls go “awww how cute is the bucket and pedal”.
Flakey pastry, crunchy on the outside and underneath is soft and thin almost like the texture of malaysian roti.
Grilling skewered potato is a genius idea if you ask me! Super thin slices of potatoes grilled and seasoned with chili. My assumptions were that the potato skewers would be crunchy. It was actually the opposite (soft and easily pulls apart from the skewer).
Krissie & and I enjoyed the scallops. They are really nice and delicate and flavoursome. The good thing about eating scallops at an asian restaurant, is that they keep the awesome membrane (orange bit) attached to it. Westerners tend to throw away that delicious part, so I’m really glad Crazy Wings left it on.
