Wingstop Kemang : A Wing Is Never Enough To Stop!

Saturday, May 16, 2015

Hey buddy, finally I can make a new blog post again, since this week I feel super busy and dizzy (although this week I almost have no classes). It's weekend again, but somehow I feel weekday comes again as fast as I blink my eyes *sigh*.

Anyway last week I joined a food tasting session in a chicken wings joint in Kemang, I rarely see or hear if there is any chicken wings joint in this town except the famous ones like K** or Mc* or whatever. So this one made me so interested to come there, can't imagine what it would looked like.


*BRB checking if I have any wing with feathers LOL.*


Wingstop
Wingstop is a number one chicken wings joint from Texas, United States. It has been chosen as "Best Wings" in many countries, and came to Indonesia opened its first branch in Kota Kasablanka in June 2014. What I love the most from Wingstop is.... THE GREEN COLOR PALETTE they choose as their brand color woot-woot-woot! Actually kinda bored seeing red colors for foods' corporate color, and never expect that a chicken wings joint would choose green as its corporate color. Ahem, pardon my excitement.... I'm a graphic design student FYI. :P



Ordering place.


Welcome to the flavorhood!



Why need a wing to stop by?
First thing first before I tell you the story, let me take you to a mini tour of Wingstop.



This painting on the wall is so cool, uh?


A corner with lovely hanging lamps and sun light comes through the ceiling.


This is the most favorite thing you can do here!


Calling up one of your childhood memories here :
you can mix the sodas as many as you like, it's free refill!

So many cool typography on the wall, with green color of course!


Let's go upstair.


Why the icons are so cute? I wonder what are their meanings.

Second storey isn't spacious, here are the seats in the alley.


But they have an outdoor smoking area in second storey.

And even they have a cool foosball to play with your friend!


Sipping a welcome drink after the mini tour LOL.


Okay, so why is the wing so special?
From where should I start this? So first, let me introduce you this man.


Guys, meet the chef!


He introduced us the way Wingstop prepares the wings for the customers. First, he showed us the very important utensils to prepare the wings : a special bowl! Maybe at the first time you look at the bowl you'll think it's the same metal bowl like your mom has. No, it's not, the metal bowl's inner surface is not glazed like the outer surface, so it will help the making process. They need to import it from United States itself since there is no bowl like that produced in Indonesia.

How to make the wings? Well, after they fry the wings, they toss them in the special bowl with seasoning. Hmm, actually they take a little bit long time to prepare, because the wings are freshly made and they never reheat your wings up with microwave or stove. 


Chef challenged us : tossing two wings in a special bowl!

Chef poured the hickory sauce inside the bowl, and allowed one of us to be the first challenger.
Chef : Who's the first challenger?
Reza : Ladies first!
Me : Bianca first!!!



Bianca as the first challenger succeed to toss her wings tutored by Chef. Then, our turns.... it turned totally wrong HAHAHAHAHAHAH since most all of us tossed the wings out from the bowl and dropped them on the floor, especially Mark he was so funny he dropped all of his wings LOL!



I dropped a wing on the floor too, but thank goodness I saved the best part!

After tossing the wings.


Show me the foods!
Okay, okay, I was super starving at that time since I didn't eat any breakfast at that day. But, as usual, photo first! :D



Mushroom Fritters. (Rp 25.000)
This battered champignon mushroom comes in big size, bite it and you'll find it is still fresh and moist. Actually not a big fan of mushroom, but I must say this is a yummy and healthy appetizer! Served in 6 pieces with one dipping.


Mushroom Fritters. (Rp 25.000)


Cheese Fries. (Rp 24.545)
Fried fries came in big size with cuts of jalapeno chili on top and the most happiest thing in life..... GALORE CHEESE! So delicious and I bet you can't stop eating this and ended up with licking your fingers to enjoy the last piece of fries and cheese.


Cheese Fries. (Rp 24.545)


Cajun Rice (Rp 10.000)
You're not an Indonesian if your stomack is full after finishing your meal without rice. Yeap, this rice menu is only available in Indonesia since we, the Indonesian, always eat rice three times a day LOL! But still, this rice gets a touch of American seasoning, cooked with Cajun seasoning, a typical spice from Louisiana, so the color is reddish. 


Veggie Stick (Rp 15.000)
A smart menu for balancing the meals since most all of the foods served are deep fried. Served with one dipping.


Cajun Rice (Rp 10.000); Veggie Stick (Rp 15.000)


Mini Churros (Rp 25.000)
Even they serve my favorite snack, CHURROS! This one is little bit smaller than the original size, the cinnamon taste was quiet strong, I like it, especially when the taste of cinnamon mixed with chocolate dipping.

Wings - Boneless / Classic
For me, I rarely eat wings as it is the least favorite for chicken since all the wings I see always have less meat, but these wings are bigger than the others you may see in other wings joint, and they're so juicy and succulent! I'm so in love with these wings, they have 10 variants of flavors for the wings, I will tell about it later after this. How many wings do you wanna eat? Choose as many as you like :

  • 5 pcs (2 flavors + 1 dip) - Rp 34545
  • 10 pcs (2 flavors + 1 dip) - Rp 66.364
  • 18 pcs (3 flavors + 2 dip) - Rp 120.000




Garlic Parmesan (L) or Hickory Smoked BBQ (R)?


Big drumsticks spotted!


You make me mouthwatering, show me the wings more!!!
As I told you before, there are 10 flavors available in Wingstop. You noticed the icons in frames on 10th picture? YES they are the flavors!!!!


You still want to "kepo" how do the wings taste, kid? *munch munch*

The samplers, started from Teriyaki to Atomic.


Many seasonings and sauces you can choose for your wings, all of us were given a set of all the flavors. Chef said we had to start to eat from the sweet one to the most spicy one.

  • Teriyaki : Sweet but little bit sourer than the one you usually eat, since the American teriyaki is sourer than the Asian teriyaki.
  • Hawaiian : The taste of pinapple dominates the sauce.
  • Garlic Parmesan : I love the savoriness level, since the cheese not too salty but perfectly mixed with light butter.
  • Lemon Pepper : The pepper more overwhelming than the lemon. But try this one, it's not like eating the ordinary peppered chicken.
  • Hickory Smocked BBQ : The most exotic one, like eating a roasted hickory wood. :p


Wait.... 5 more flavors, guys....
  • Mild : The taste starts to be spicy, more little bit salty, but still.... it's like Maicih spicy cassava chips level 0,5 / 10 lahhhh in my mouth....
  • Louisiana Rub : More spicier than Mild, equivalent to Maicih level 1 / 10.
  • Hot Original : More spicier than Louisiana Rub, the spiciness level jumps from 1/10 to 5/10.
  • Cajun : More spicier than Hot Original, but the spiciness level jumps only a little bit.
  • Atomic : Ready for this? When I ate this one, the spiciness level jumped a little bit from Cajun, and little bit unexcited as I thought this one had to be the spiciest one. BUT BE CAREFUL WITH THE AFTERTASTE : the spicy aftertaste still sticks on your tongue even after you swallow it. SUPER HOT! I saw Reza was sweating a lot like a opened water tap beside me LOL.




The most epic food tasting : It's like The Last Supper painting,
but not for the 12 apostles.... it was for.... FIVE OF US!!!!
*eating until almost died of full stomack*



Conclusion

  • A nice casual wings joint, never saw a wings joint with nice interior design.
  • It will add more fun if they put some television, I think the smoking area suits for "nobar" a.k.a watching soccer matches together.
  • They have cool foosball to play with your friends.
  • The wings are extraordinary, I'm in love to Wingstop since the first bite! The price is fair, worth bigger portion and delicious flavors. Once I bite, I think it's never enough to stop!
