Marinated Chicken Wings originally uploaded by placbo
In my never ending quest to find the hottest edible substances on the planet, I went searching for the best wings around town. Unfortunately most of my searching revealed sources which just didn’t appeal much to me. I’m looking for the kind of place that has 30+ different kinds of wings and levels of heat from fire extinguisher to “sign a fucking waiver before you eat these”. I’m tired of coming across BW3 or places that serve “mild Buffalo”, “hot Buffalo”, and BBQ and call it a day. I’m really tired of going to BW3 and having the waitress gasp at the fact that I’m ordering 12 Blazin’ wings (they used to be hotter I’m sure–did they dumb it down for mass market appeal?) because, to be perfectly honest, they aren’t even a little bit spicy.
But in my travels today, I found one place that really does appeal to me, Girvan Grille in Brooklyn Park has the Ghost Wing Challenge where you eat 10 wings in 15 minutes and get a t-shirt. The best is their disclaimer at the bottom which reads, in part, “Good hot wings always burn twice. Girvan Grille is not responsible for next day discomfort.” I already have UpWithTheMooses in on a trip up there, any other takers? While they aren’t offering 30+ varieties of wings, at least I know this place will leave me begging for a beer and some ice cubes–especially for round two.
Anyway, that said, what places do you like to eat wings? Do you have any suggestions on where I could find a menu similar to one of my favorite wing places ever? I’m up to any and all suggestions and the hotter the better! So please do share your knowledge of MSP wing joints as my mouth is watering just thinking about them :)
