5 top notch bars for Chicken Wings in London
by Dylan – Astor Victoria
London is the city of dreams, dreams that let people live the life they desire.
The great Dr.seuss once said that “fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope”
The poultry treat that is the chicken wing is a family favourite around the globe, from the succulent juicy white meat that peels off the bone to the crispy skin that makes it way around the mouth with a single crunch, then we have the sauces, we can not forget about the sauces that compliment this little half-time treat such as blue cheese, ranch, ailoi.. the list goes on.
Chicken as a meat has been depicted in Babylonian carvings from around 600 BC from then it has been a common staple in our diets and this will carry on for years to come, not only is it just a tasty treat but it also a beneficial morsel as it contains high protein and also provides selenium which contains antioxidants that help control free radicals and improve your immune system. (Wow!!!)
London has built its reputation as ‘the smoke’ because of all the chicken wings that get cooked in this city!
5. Daylesford Farmshop (Pimlico)
This little organic shop is located 5 minutes walking distance from Astor Victoria, this is the spot if you are feeling the urge to get your culinary skills in action, the wings here are always fresh and ready to fly out the door, price is affordable but you are paying for quality organic meat. These are nicely cooked on a pan smothered in pickle juice and cayenne pepper.
