Buffalo Wings Restaurant in Kapitolyo, Pasig
I love buffalo wings / chicken wings as mentioned in my Frankie’s post. So whenever there is a new wings place, I will try my best to compare it to my favorite. Wishbone is a new player amidst Kyochon, Wingstop, Frankies, Buffalo Wild Wings (Capitol Commons), etc. They are located in Kapitolyo Pasig before Silantro and across Gostoso. There is only one parking space in front so plan ahead–but this is a given in a Kapitolyo food trip (no parking space).
They are still on soft opening so cash only for now. They are located in between Tomahawk Chops and Grill, and The Round Table.
Wishbone can accommodate at most 20 people, I think. The place is quite small. We went during off peak hours so there were only a few people dining.
The menu is simple and straight to the point. The dishes and price are shown with minor description on some items. I wanted to try all the chicken wings available but I was just with the girlfriend.
Srirachamansi – 209
Salted Egg – 209
Mister Crab – 209
The orders took around 20mins to arrive. They were cooked fresh so no issues there. Each order had 6 pieces of sizeable wings. Hindi tinipid unlike other bigger establishments. Aside from the utensils placed on your table, they also have disposable plastic gloves you can use if you wanna use your hands instead while eating the wings.
First on the list, Srirachamansi. I always have a bottle of Sriracha at home. I have it with anything I can pair it with. Wishbone’s buffalo wings had the right amount of kick to it. Not too spicy so you can still taste the tangy finish of the calamansi. But since I prefer spicy food in general, I will ask next time if they can intensify the spiciness level as a special order.
Second target – Salted Egg chicken wings. My first experience with a Salted Egg dish is with Gino’s Pizza (one of my favorites) so I had a bit of high expectations with Wishbone’s take on salted egg. You can definitely taste the salted egg with this one. This will go well with cold beer.
Last is the Mister Crab buffalo wings. Who doesn’t like crab fat? But crab fat in chicken wings? A bit weird but hopefully delicious. There’s a hint of crab fat taste saltiness at first bite that is not that weird at all, that ends with a bit of a zest. Some might not find this dish to their liking but I’ll probably order it again.
This new restaurant that serves wings in Kapitolyo, Pasig is good competition to the other established big buffalo wings restaurant in Metro Manila. I really hope they are able to get a bigger fan base but given their good location, they will eventually get there.
