There is a food that is loved in South Florida; one that has been on the menu at almost every restaurant. The humble chicken wing has be invented and re-invented over and over. They can be an incredible example of how much fancy and skill you can put into an ingredient that so many before have haphazardly dropped into a fry basket and cooked to a crisp (or even worse, not even crispy) then drowned in sauce to cover the evidence. The best part is, all it took to make them great was a little love. These wings didn’t come to us in a dream. Truth be told, they were inspired by a trip to famed Portland restaurant, Pok Pok. 2011 & 2014 James Beard Winner Andy Ricker put his delicious “Vietnamese” chicken wing on the map and has had lines out the door since he began serving them.
Our take on Ricker’s now famous “Ike’s Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wing” includes fresh squeezed orange juice & pulp, garlic, Red Boat fish sauce and powdered sugar to create the perfect mix of salty & sweet. We were honored that our small Asian style restaurant in Mizner Park picked up an award for one of the best chicken wings in Palm Beach County. There’s some seriously amazing chicken wings down here but most tend to come from BBQ joints. Swing by for lunch and see us for a Hop Gun IPA from Funky Buddha Brewery which pair perfectly with these delicious wings.
