Wingstop: The Wing Experts

Flavor. It's Wingstop's passion, cause, and revolution.

Wingstop currently has 8 stores here in the Philippines, and I can't believe it's my first time to dine in this fast-casual restaurant just last week. (Where have I been?)


During the launch of their latest branch at Glorietta 2 (just across Landmark Makati), I was handed this Flavor Passport, my ticket to a special evening of taste-testing the many flavors Wingstop has to offer.



One day before its grand opening last April 17, Wingstop converted its store to a party place, complete with lights, party music, and overflowing ice-cold beer on the house.


Wingstop specializes in flavorful wings, but that's not all that they offer. (You have to check out their menu!) Born in Texas, and served to the world - they've actually been around for 21 years, with over 2 billion wings sold! In the Philippines, Wingstop has been in the scene for just about a year, with 8 stores currently open, and planning to open 50 more stores in the next 6 years.


Release your inhibitions and feel free to use your hands to savor their flavorful wings! They created this wash area with exactly that in mind. ;)

Chicken Tenders [3 pcs. + 1 dip] (P185.00)

Before their flavor booths opened for taste-test, we were served tenders and fries.You can choose among 6 dips to go with your tenders: Atomic, BBQ, Honey Mustard, Bleu Cheese, Ranch, and Teriyaki. I've tried both Bleu Cheese and BBQ, but I like BBQ better... the scent reminds me of lovely baby back ribs. :D Their tenders were HUGE and filling, and I bet they'd be better if I had them served tossed in the dip beforehand (if that's even possible).

Garlic Parmesan Fries (P100.00)

Cajun Fries (P100.00)

Ah, their warm and thick fries are so good! I am always into cheesy Garlic Parmesan, but Cajun was a really nice twist. Spicy fries! ♥

Some people wait a lifetime...for a moment like THIS! :D


Out of 9 flavors, I was able to try 5 that day. I was too full already! XD


Wingstop takes pride in the size of their wings - which are the biggest in the country. Their wings are cooked-to-order, never under heat lamps , so they're always fresh. Each order of fresh wings is fried to perfection, then sauced and tossed under 17 minutes!

Since I am forever a fan of chicken drumsticks, that's all I ate that night. But they did have the legit wings! This one's just my preference, so you're stuck with drumstick photos here on my blog. :D (Trivia: When I went back to Wingstop with my family, we ordered ALL drumsticks!)

Louisiana Rub
Addictive simplicity. Deep South Cajun and garlic spices give this wing a little lagniappe.

Garlic Parmesan
This epic pairing may have originated in the Mediterranean. But it was perfected in our kitchen. Some things are worth wrecking your breath over.

Lemon Pepper
Unique. Inspiration of rap lyrics. Creator of cravings. It changes the game with its unreal citrus zing.

Hickory Smoked BBQ
A summer night’s cookout distilled into a sauce. Smoky sweet. Big and bold.

Mild Buffalo
Nothing timid about it. It’s that classic Buffalo spirit without the sweaty brow.

Plus, 4 more flavors I wasn't able to try but will pretty soon:
  • Atomic: Sauce, sweat and tears. It’s a habanero-fueled punch in the mouth – for those who are into that sort of thing.
  • Cajun: All the warmth of Original Hot with a little trance-inducing voodoo sprinkled on top.
  • Hot Buffalo: The Original. The one and only. It’s the classic blend of heat and tang that made us famous.
  • Teriyaki: Monumental oriental. Take a trip to the Asian spices mingled into this satisfyingly sweet sauce.

I'll let you in on a little secret: They'll be coming up with a 10th flavor, and it's something formulated uniquely for our Pinoy taste buds. I can't wait!!! :D

I thought my automatic favorite flavor would be Garlic Parmesan, but it only came to a close second. My taste buds were floored with Lousiana Rub!♥ You may have noticed that I'm scared of the too spicy ones, but in the coming days, I will get the strength to try them out as well. I just have to! :D

Wingstop Menu

While browsing the coupons that came with my BDJ 2015 Planner, I spotted a couple of great Wingstop deals. (Yes! All the more incentive to go back.) They have a store in Trinoma (so close to home), and I'm stoked that I can share FLAVOR with my loved ones anytime!


Everyone can now get Wingstop's flavorful wings at their recently opened store at Glorietta 2, Makati, as well as in Eastwood Citywalk, University Mall in Taft, Fairview Terraces, Starmall Prima in Taguig, Starmall Las PiƱas, Estancia in Capitol Commons, and Greenhills Promenade. Like Wingstop Philippines on Facebook for more information.

Love,
Helen
