Buffalo Wings @Slims Restaurant

My Take: Most people know Slim’s restaurant for their signature buffalo wings which are apparently a big deal. The Mrs and I went there on a Tuesday night (for the live band, The HashTag Band 👌, every Tuesday from 8pm) and just had to try these wings. Uhmmm…I don’t know whether it was an off night for the chef, but didn’t really feel the wings – there were a tad-bit too tangy for me, like there was too much vinegar, or may be that just how they make them… Well, you could give it a try yourself, you might like it, but personally – meh! I prefer the wings at ArtCaffe. I did enjoy the cold beer though 🙂

PS: Check out Dotty and The HashTag Band every Tuesday at Slims for awesome Jazz music

Wedges and Hot Wings @ ArtCaffe

TEMP1 My Take: Believe it or not, this was my first time to eat at any Artcaffe, not my first time to be in one though. The first I went to was at The Junction, after about 20min of zero attention from the waiters, I walked out and went to the Java next door. Needless to say after that experience and the brouhaha about the croissant incident, I was hesitant to ever go to one. Anywho, I found myself at Karen shopping centre and with the urge to buy my girl lunch (she doesn’t do the stool and mirror joints, she classy like that). Artcaffe at Crossroads Karen was my best option, had been to Big Square already (note to self: post a review on Big Square). Yes, now, the short of it, I loved the experience…the service was exceptional – Is it me or are all the waiters at every Artcaffe hot as hell!!!like their motto is “Be fly,stay fly or go home”. Sorry, I digress, the chicken wings were the best I’ve had..yet, just the right amount of spicy, soft and succulent..The wedges were excellent too…I mean, one has to really try to screw up potatoes, right? All in all, my outlook on Artcaffe changed today – It was a good day. I recommend you try the chicken wings

Hot Wings and Fries @Valencia

My Take: Valencia Gardens is a nice place to relax, preferably with the family for lunch, great for couples too or even by your lonesome. You can sit outside and enjoy the serene environment. The chicken wings were ok, nothing to write home about, fries ok too…haven’t yet tried a lot on their menu (yet), Its a polite place to hangout though.
