Wings N Things: my new obsession

A couple months back I heard a crazy little rumor that a favorite old school wings place from ages ago would be re-opening just around the corner from me. Naturally I had to investigate this amazing rumor and guess what, it was true!! Wings N Things officially opened their doors on Royalmount and I for one couldn't have been happier.

One Saturday afternoon I convinced my parents to accompany me on a walk around my neighborhood with the intention of stopping by Wings N Things for a little lunch. We happened to walk in at an odd hour and had the place all to ourselves. We were greeted by the owner who kindly suggested which wings to try; general tao, medium hot and sweet heat. He was extra nice and even made us 5 wings of each sauce instead of the standard 10 minimum, thanks again for that! We decided since there was no one else around that we would eat in instead of taking out. We waited a few short minutes for our wings, fries and traditional coleslaw.
We decided to order all traditional wings, they offer boneless and breaded as well. The wings were seasoned nicely and cooked perfectly. They had a crisp texture and held the sauces well. The medium sauce was perfect; not too hot but spicy enough to be considered a medium heat and totally addicting. I found the sweet heat to be similar to the medium wings without the little burst of heat at the end. Both were excellent choices and kept me wanting more. The General Tao wings are something else. I don't normally enjoy general tao chicken, but I'll be glad to eat general tao wings from Wings N Things for the rest of my life. The sweet, tangy sauce gooey all over the crispy yummy wings, just perfect. They were so good even my Father who is not a big wings eater couldn't keep his hands off them! Delish and a MUST order!
The fries are thin cut shoestring style and deliciously fried. Their coleslaw is just right, the perfect side to balance the spicy wings. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience at WNT. It was so good that later that night I may have called in a take out order and I may have tried their hot wings, Waffle fries and curly Q fries. Ok so I pigged out on wings, big deal! They were scrumptious, how could I not?
The hot sauce on the wings might be my favorite overall, spicy but not too spicy that you can't breath or taste the wings. The waffle fries were spiced and really good, what you would expect good waffle fries to be. The curly q's were crispy and perfectly fried and not soggy, a huge hit I really liked them. I was impressed because I knew the were busy yet the food arrived hot and just as if I were there eating it.

A couple Saturdays later I found myself reaching for the Wings N Things take-out/delivery menu and ordered three more kinds of wings; hot (they are just soooooo good), Parmesan garlic and Chili lime. Of course I had to have fries and coleslaw too.
As soon as I tried both the wings, parmesan garlic and chili lime, I knew I was in trouble. How was I going to put into words how delicious the wings were? The parmesan garlic were crispy, juicy and tossed with toasted garlic, herbs and yummy parmesan. OMG, what a perfect combination! The chili lime had a yummy slightly oily chili lime sauce that was absolutely to die for. I really cannot even begin to explain how much I enjoyed the chili lime wings. Even with the slightly oily sauce the wings were still perfectly crisp. Kudos guys your wings are truly special. Next time I'm trying the sliders! Stay tuned!

Le Santal, the very best of St. Martin

Vacation time is always the best time.  Planning every part of your trip and then finally getting to experience everything you hoped for.  This year, my girlfriends and I planned a last minute spontaneous trip to St. Martin with a stop in Anguilla.  I of course was excited for all the food.  The research started once my flight was booked, and did not stop until I felt we had more than enough options.  I can get obsessive, so I had to really narrow down my list.  At the top of my list were a few, but one kept reappearing, Le Santal.  

Sitting on the beautiful beach of Sandy Ground St. Martin, Le Santal blew my expectations like no other restaurant has ever done before.  We pulled up to the restaurant where the valet and hostess were waiting for us.  Our car was taken to the parking lot and we were escorted to our table.  Our table was overlooking the water, so beautiful so calming, we really enjoyed the view.  
The restaurant is gorgeous.  Elegantly decorated in whites and blues, it real…

Grumman 78 - A Taco heaven?

Scrolling through my pictures this weekend, I noticed ones from my lunch at Grumman 78 and immediately realized that I had never written a review on them - shame on me!  Better late than never right?  So here it is, a year late ...

My visit to Grumman was so long ago, in fact it was at their Faubourg location that closed a while back.  Two friends and I headed over the Grumman for what we heard were the best tacos in town.  Arriving at their order counter, I quickly ordered two tacos (pork stick and the lamb curry taco), papas Grumman and a tomato and corn bread salad.  

The first Taco I had was their "Pork Stick" topped with a delicious potato and egg salad.  When ordering this taco I thought I would be transported into a different taste dimension, maybe I was expecting too much.  It was good, but nowhere near as good as everyone made it seem.   I found it to be a bit lacking in flavour, I barely tasted anything expect the salad topping.  I enjoyed it but wasn't as impres…

Spiga; Italian cuisine on a French Island

Spiga Grand Case, St. Martin

Since travelling to Italy, I have become such a snob when it comes to eating Italian food.  I don't enjoy pizza as much, except for a couple of places, pasta dishes seem bland and tasteless, and don't get me started on the meats.  I just don't get it.  Italian food used to be my favourite, but now, I just keep dreaming of the day I can go back and eat till  explode, literally!  I am saved sometimes as my co-worker is a from Italy and happens to be a killer cook.  She satisfies my gnocchi craving when I need it the most.  So when I came across Spiga on my restaurant quest of St. Martin, I was cautious, but hopeful.  
We parked like typical locals, squished on some lawn on the side of the road, and walked in to the very cute restaurant.  It was quite busy, one table in particular was overly rowdy and obnoxious, nevertheless we were seated very quickly, a very big plus in my books.  We sat down, ordered drinks and waited hungrily to order our mains. …
