Editorial Review of Wings Around the World

One thing's for sure, while the new location of Wings Around the World has gone south (WATW was originally located on 35th St), their wings haven't. In fact, the freshly fried to order internationally flavored chicken wings from owner Abeng Stewart served here are better than ever.

The red-and-black painted digs are still relatively small like the old location, and the business is still primarily take-out. But if you can't wait to get your wings home or your car is parked too far away, there is informal bench seating where you can chow down.

Frankly, we wouldn't blame you for your impatience, as old favorites like the Italian-inspired parmesan garlic, featuring fat chunks of real garlic and fluffy tufts of salty parmesan, or sweet Canadian maple glazed chicken, call to hungry stomachs like no other wing in the city. Plus it's likely you'll have been waiting a while, since service (even when you call ahead) tends to run a little slow, especially during busy weekend nights and prime daytime football watching hours.

In addition to the aforementioned, there's another 30-plus globally inspired flavors from Buffalo to Japan for you to try. If chicken's not your thing, you can always get any of the sauces slapped on to thick flaky tilapia, cod or shrimp. One cool touch is that no matter what you order, the friendly staff flips open your clamshell Styrofoam container before bagging it up and confirms there are no flavor mix-ups.

Average cost: <$10
