REMEMBER when wings used to mean just one flavor? Deep-fried to a crisp then tossed in butter and hot sauce, and served with celery sticks and blue cheese or ranch dip. Times have changed and chicken wing flavors now exceed the number of wing tips that Americans discard. Whether you want them hot and spicy or sticky sweet, wings bring unbridled joy, so much so that they have a holiday in their honor. In celebration of International Chicken Wing Day, here is a roundup of wing joints in Cebu that serve them in unlimited portions and flavors (well, almost).
The OG of unli wings in town, Burrow now has three branches--Tsai Hotel, Parkmall, and Island Central Mactan--yet has remained consistent with its flavor offerings--classic, mild teriyaki, Asian barbecue, chili, and garlic parmesan. Even if you go minutes earlier than the opening time, you’re still bound to find earlier birds queuing up.
The Classroom Resto Bar
If your wing cravings strike at midnight or even beyond, The Classroom’s got your back. Open till 2 a.m., it allows customers to sip on its signature libations and feast on its signature wings in buffalo, Asian-inspired barbecue, honey garlic soy, crazy gravy and creamy cheese flavors.
Paku by Chef Binux
Paku offers nine flavors, some of which are seasonal. Take your pick from barbecue, teriyaki, hot and spicy, lemon pepper, sweet and sour, cream cheese, honey caramel, mango wasabi and spicy vinegar, or come hungry and ask your waiter to serve all of the above.
Unlimited wings, unlimited rice, unlimited fries? Sounds like the perfect equation for a Winger, Winger, chicken dinner! Its flavors—plain, garlic pepper, sweet mustard, barbecue and buffalo—will make you forget that this meal can be artery-clogging too.
Portos Diner and Grille
Apart from its bestselling ribs, Portos’ wings deserve some recognition. Their flavors may be the same as those of other restaurants—barbecue, teriyaki, chili, and garlic parmesan—but these unli wings also come with unli rings (squid rings, that is!). Bring on the calamari for that extra crunch!
KauKau Fusion Resto
Escape into this beach shack-inspired diner and try its parmesan, teriyaki, buffalo and classic wings, paired with seafood, carbonara, bolognese and aglio olio pasta. If these sound flavorful and filling, wait till you actually have your fill.
A new player in the wings scene, this place offers new flavors too. If Thai red curry, teriyaki, Korean spicy, mango chutney and spicy hoisin appeal to your senses, you’d better check this backyard out and beat everyone to it.
If you loved 21 Dubs Flavored Chicken Wings, this is the answer to all those times you prayed they would serve unli wings. This sister company offers a total of—drum (or drumette?) roll please—17 flavors! You can also choose between a round of pasta and fries, in addition to unlimited rice and iced tea.
Papart’s Diner and Cafe
Ten flavors sounds like a lot. And when these are in the form of calamansi garlic butter, choco curry, Mexican barbecue and sour cream, among others, it’s even more dizzying to make a choice. Save room for a round of carbonara or bolognese linguine which comes with each order.
