You don’t win friends with salad.
But you can with wings. To celebrate National Chicken Wing day on Monday 29 July we’ve rounded up Canberra’s best finger licking wings. Sharing might be caring but you have our full permission to be selfish on this day!
38 Mort St, Braddon, Canberra 2612
When you make a dish this good, you’ll never take it off the menu. Bentspoke has achieved this with their Brewer’s Grain Crusted Hot Wings. Choose from ‘Regular’ or ‘Seriously Bent’ wings coated in a brewery-made sauce and served with pickled cucumber and malted blue cheese aioli.
1/9 Lonsdale St, Braddon ACT 2612
The best things in life aren’t free; they cost $12, are seasoned with snow cheese and kimchi mayo and are listed on Lazy Su’s menu as Korean Fried Chicken. Funny that.
131 City Walk, Canberra ACT 2601
There are few guarantees in this world. Your morning commute will involve at least one roundabout, as a Canberra resident your wardrobe contains at least one black puffer jacket, and you will agree that pub food such as that served at King O’Malley’s is some of the most consistently reliable and satisfying. This extends to their Buffalo Wings, served with fried and aioli. Yummo.
19 Lonsdale St, Braddon ACT 2612
Synonymous with unbeatable burgers, our Braddon fave also serves up killer hot wings. Served with a side of blue cheese sauce, we recommend a serving per person!
29 Garema Pl, Canberra ACT 2601
Level up your wings game with Shorty’s crispy Duck Wings, coated in five spice and honey.
5 Lonsdale St, Braddon ACT 2612
Hop over to Hopscotch and order a serve of their Crispy Buffalo Wings. Choose from Blue Cheese Ranch Dressing or spice it up with their signature Hot Sauce.
Gami Chicken & Beer
Level G, Shop FG07, Canberra Centre, 148 Bunda St, Canberra ACT 2608
With generous portions, a wide range of sauces available and flowing beer on tap, this is a perfect opportunity to try Korean cuisine if you’ve never done so before.
78-80 Alinga St, Canberra ACT 2601
We didn’t think you could improve on the perfection that is chicken wings. That was before we tried the wings at Bistro Nguyen’s. Here you can taste the difference that wok tossing in caramelized fish sauce makes!
Bourbon Street Kitchen
East Row &, London Circuit, Canberra ACT 2601
Get the gang together to tackle either 1 or 2 pounds(!) of Bourbon Street Kitchen’s spicy Honey Chipotle or milder Breaded Cajun wings.
4A/21 Genge St, Canberra ACT 2601
Spice up your next Mookie order with a side of crumbed buffalo wings with your choice of Texas bbq sauce, or if you can handle it, devil chili sauce!
39-47 Northbourne Ave, Canberra ACT 2601
Don’t have time to celebrate on the day? Momoda has your back with a special on Thursdays and Fridays – $10 for 1kg bucket of wings!
Garema Place, 1/66-68 Bunda St, Canberra ACT 2601
Although known for their namesake pho, iPho’s crispy pan fried chicken wings deserve a special mention. Go for the pho, stay for the wings!
Seoul & Ko
142/114 Bunda St, Canberra ACT 2601
Another Korean hotspot, every order of fried chicken comes a traditional side of rice. Order through Menulog and celebrate this delicious day from the comfort of your couch.
