Flaming Wings: Wings and Wicked Oreos at Taft

One Friday night, my mom finally gave in to her curiosity to try Flaming Wings after she's heard about it from us over the years.

It's been a long time since I dropped by the place again.  Yet, it has the same feel.  The small diner is crowded with students, the place is lightly ventilated with a few fans, tables are close to each other so you can hear the chatterings from other tables and each table has a pack of paper napkin.  This may not be your ideal cozy dining venue, but people come here ready to get their hands messy and gratify themselves with the food. 



caesar salad
Caesar Salad (120 php)
We never missed the chance to order salad when available so we ordered our favorite one, the Caesar Salad.  The price is reasonable as the greens were fresh and crunchy and it had generous servings of parmesan cheese, bacon bits and croutons too.
lettuce wrap
Lettuce Wrap (120 php)
The Lettuce Wrap is our favorite!  Although it doesn't exactly fit in the American Buffalo Wing theme, we don't mind.  These crispy noodles topped with minced chicken and bathe drenched in Asian sauce eaten atop a lettuce leaf is simply irresistible.

Buffalo Wings

15 Wings (705 php)
Everyone of my siblings forgot the portions were for serving size so we ordered the 15 Wings which was served in two baskets with three choices of dip.  We had one basket with their Original signature sauce and the other Wild.  Their wings had a nice crunchy coating that's fun to eat.  The Original had a nice tangy taste with a bit of a zing.  While, the Wild is blazing with heat.  I guess I have a bit of a heat tolerance built throughout the years so I enjoyed it while my siblings managed it with a few glasses of cold water.  

For the dips, we had Bleu Cheese, Wasabi Mayo and Aoli.  For the Wild, I found it best paired with the Bleu Cheese.   The Wasabi Mayo and Aoili dip were light tasting so they are good with any of their signature sauce.

3 Wings (243 php)
For the 3 wings, we chose the Mild n' Sweet with Honey Mustard dip.  I personally prefer the Original over this.  But, those who like their dishes sweet will like this.  The Honey Mustard dip is perfect for it too.

Rice Pilaf (25 php)
Their Rice Pilaf is a bang for the buck option for sides.  It is fragrant and tasty.

Sweet Endings

Wicked Oreos (75 php)
For our sweet endings, we ordered their famous Wicked Oreos As an ultimate Oreo fanatic, I could never miss this for anything in the whole wide world.  I indulged myself in every chewy bite of these deep-fried battered treats.  Of course, its best eaten ala mode style or with vanilla ice cream similar to eating Oreos with a cool glass of milk.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Flaming Wings will always be a crowd favorite at Taft despite the many stablishments that have sprouted out and about in the area.  The news of how great its Wings, Tenders and Buffalo Wings has spread like wild fire from batches to batches in the surrounding schools.  It's a wing place that can tame anyone's craving for an affordable price.
