Neighborhood Haunt: Wings & Wedges

Tucked along a row of small shops in Bonny Serrano (very near Camp Crame) is a little hole-in-the-wall that sells that quintessential of all comfort foods -- Buffalo Chicken Wings.  And with a joint that offers that, what other name can be more fitting than Wings & Wedges.

Wings & Wedges

The specialty of the house is, of course, their juicy Buffalo Chicken Wings (Php190 for a 4-piece serving).  Have it 2 ways: spicy or sweet (I personally enjoy the latter).  Paired with a cup of pipping hot rice and you have yourself the makings of one sinful meal.

Sweet Buffalo Chicken Wings

I know Buffalo Chicken Wings are supposed to be just finger food; but I just can't help not having rice with these babies on my plate.  Sweet!

Now if rice isn't your thing, Wings & Wedges also offers a good selection of pizzas and pastas, among other things.  A personal fave is their Carbonara (Php110 for a single serving) with it's creamy white sauce topped with a generous (and I do mean generous) serving of bacon and mushroom.

Lasagna's (Php150) also a best seller.  Lasagna noodles with layers of creamy white sauce, beef, and 2 kinds of cheeses.  What's not to love?

With such great food, I've always wondered though why this places hasn't exactly generated much buzz.  That is until a few visits later did I find the reason why.  Their dishes, although, very promising; Wings & Wedges still have a ways to go in terms of consistency.

Case in point; the family's developed the habit of ordering take-out from Wings & Wedges every time we find ourselves within the San Juan area.  And on those visits, we'd either usually get really delicious dishes, or bland ones.  But regardless, we order on in the hopes that we hit the jackpot and get served up with a good meal by chance.  I swear the gamble pays off if it means having great wings again.

Still, here's hoping for more consistency in the future.  They'd make a great addition to the fast food line-up here in the Metro.

  1. Promising place! Hope they'll work on the consistency though. :)

  2. Maybe the inconsistency is part of the gimmick of Wings and Wedges. Imagine the thrill that you'll have while waiting if the buffalo wings that you'll get is delicious or not. :-P

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
