Located at level C in Liberty House DIFC, Original Wings & Rings has “great food. no bull”.
As you walk in, the brightly lit wall catches your attention. The interiors itself scream sporty with flags, flat-screens and a foosball table.
The walls are covered with words to live by, eg: a dropped wing is grounds for a food fight!
For a Thursday night the place was buzzing with people watching the cricket match with drinks in one hand and a wing in the other!
We started off with a few juices and mocktails.
Jamaica (upper left) was an orangey blend, kiwi apple freezer (upper right) was fruity and sweet, pina colada (bottom left) was creamy and my minted lemonade (bottom right) was refreshing.
Beware they have huge portions and we enjoyed every bite of the starters!
The hand breaded onion rings were crunchy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside.
Imagine crisp nacho chips topped with cheese, tomatoes, olives, jalapenos, onions and crispy buffalo chicken with a portion size enough for 4 people to stuff their faces with. #nomnomnom
You’d think a place like Original Wings & Rings wouldn’t have good veggie options, you were wrong. This vegetarian quesadilla is the best one we’ve had yet: filled with tomatoes, black olives, green pepper, jalapenos, sweet corn, red beans and a fantastic 3 cheese mix. Even the non-vegetarians were fighting for a bite.
Photo is the chili cheese fries sans the chili, which the staff were kind enough to serve on the side (for the veg momma). These were delicious, cheesy goodness tasted great with the beef chili too! The best chili cheese fries we’ve had and we’ve been on the hunt for quite some time now.
Greek gyro salad is also a fantastic veggie option (minus the gyro meat), big enough to share. The classic greek salad but the herbed honey vinaigrette was addictive – you could not stop eating.
Boneless wings in “crazy” sauce, done med hot with curly fries #perfection. Crazy sauce is like a roasted garlic-y teriyaki sauce, it was SO GOOD. And these wings are saucy, keep loads of tissues on hand. “These wings were made for swimming.”
I on the other hand, tried out the traditional wings in lemon pepper sauce med hot with normal fries! I also chose blue sauce, trust me that goes better with everything. These were saucier than the boneless wings – my mouth and hands were smeared in that spicy tangy sauce which packs a huge punch. It’s great that here, “table manners are strongly discouraged.”
Lastly, the buffalo burger was quite big and had succulent pieces of chicken sandwiched between soft piece of bread and the normal veggies. Special shoutout to the slaw!
Overall a great place to kick back with some comfort food and a few friends. Remember eat, talk, drink loudly.
