Castlegar’s (Secret) Chicken Wings

My accommodation was right beside this huge statue that I couldn’t help noticing upon entry, so I thought I’d check out the Black Rooster Classic Bar and Grill.

I had the munchies and wanted something to eat but didn’t want a full-fledged dinner. I was thinking about trying their chicken wings, but the menu listed them as “tossed in a chilli-plum sauce” which didn’t appeal to me. Luckily I mentioned that to my server and she promptly informed me that they actually had twelve different types of wings, including my fave – hot wings, it just wasn’t on the menu. I love secret items not on the menu! It makes me feel like you have to be ‘in the know’ to know. Plus that night the wings were on special, a dozen for $4. No need for further info, I got a dozen.

I don’t know if I psyched myself up too much but I would rate these wings at just below average. They must batter their wings because they were “crispy” as advertised but too much so. The batter is too thick and absorbs whatever they are tossed in, so you barely taste its flavouring, even if I had ordered something other than hot wings. The wings were on the meatier side, so I can give them that. But overall I thought maybe this was a secret they should have kept to themselves.
