  1. I know this isn't what you are looking for, but I like Popeye's wings better than...weeeeeell, almost anything!

    1. For buffalo style wings: Christian Tailgate

      For standard chicken wings: Beaver's (on Wed only), Barbeque Inn, and Breakfast Klub.

      1. The chx wings at Indika's during happy hour are addictive!

            Popeye's wings have two things I prefer over Frenchy's, (which IS great, BTW):

            #1 Popeye's leaves a huge knob of breast meat on their wings so that they are not just an afterthought, but really they are the best part of the dinner box, and

            #2 They are 1.5 miles from from house.

            When Frenchy's wings double in size and they move in next door, we will agree.

          2. We like the Thai wings at Thai Cottage (very sweet sticky sauce) and the Vietnamese wings at Le Viet. Neither are likely from the country represented, but they are why we go to these two places on occasion!

              Can you tell us more about Le Viet? It's in my neighborhood and we tried it a couple of times many years ago, but weren't overly impressed. Give me a reason to go back, Lambsy. What do you like and what do you avoid?

                I like those wings! We once got a lobster dish, which like most Asian places, just hacked that thing up like a carrot so if you got some tail meat, it was by accident, but it was tasty. It's really been a long time since we were there, my better half is not all that enthused. But he does like their Korean ribs on the lunch special menu.

                1. re: Lambowner

                  Just tried the wings at Thai Cottage. They are called "Wings of Paradise" and that sticky sweet sauce you describe was the best thing about the meal. It is delicious! My son said the wings tasted a lot like the ones I make at home. (I'll take that as a compliment.)

                  For lunch he had Pad Thai and I had the Basil Chicken. Neither held up to our old standards at SingHa, but they were about half the price and certainly Chow--able, (all rights reserved). We both ordered pretty spicy, (4 out of 5), and his was little too spicy for him. I liked mine just fine.

                  They have dumplings, too.

                  Next time.

                  1. re: DoobieWah

                    I haven't been to SingHa (where is that?) but the Pad Thai at Thai Cottage is my so-far favorite. With shrimp. Now you got me thinking of those wings...

                    1. re: Lambowner

                      The wing sauce was great! I was dragging my son's uneaten chicken through the leftover sauce before they took it all away.

                      SingHa WAS at Westheimer and Gray Falls where Cliff's Hamburgers and then Texadelphia USED to be, and where Mumbai Spice is now.

                      It closed and the owner opened The Bangkok Room downtown, but I believe it is closed as well.

                      If anyone knows what Johnny is up to now, I'd be grateful. He is one of a kind.

                      oh, maybe we need a pad thai thread. I was just thinking of the version at Thai Pepper which is also good, but I haven't been there in years. Parking is such a hassle.
