Last year, I loved Mi Linh’s Canh Ga Chien so much that it made my Top 5 Dishes of 2013 list. Lightly breaded with rice flour and cornstarch, deep-fried and then sauteed with butter, red pepper flakes, garlic and diced onions, these chicken wings made me wish I could eat them every day. Then there was a shake-up in the family-run restaurant, and head chef Nelson Tran – brother of owner Dee Dee Tran – was out. How are the wings now? During a return visit, the dish was overloaded with scallions and garlic, but the light and crispy coating still cracked with the first bite, the meat was still juicy, the gentle heat still warmed my lips, and the wings still glistened – as did my fingers – with butter and oil. My verdict? I’m still eating them.

A Smoky Souvenir: Bogart’s smoked chicken wings

Friday, April 19th, 2013



One day while waiting to order a slab of Bogart’s famed ribs, we were bestowed with a free sample of smoked chicken wings. Turns out the Soulard smokehouse’s ’cue crew hands these little gems out for free to patient patrons when the line gets long. Two bites, and we didn’t care how long we had to wait; we just wanted another … and another. We’re helpless against the temptation of a smoked wing, but these charred beauties are truly special: tender, meaty and packed with smoky flavor. By the time we got to the front of the line, our order had changed. When it comes to barbecue, pork may reign supreme; but don’t be surprised if these wings convert you.

The Scoop: Former Mia Rosa chef de cuisine ventures into chicken wings

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

120610_stlwingsWhen Mia Rosa shuttered in August, Bobby Tessler, the chef de cuisine at the Italian eatery in The Grove, decided it was time to open his own place. Although Tessler has accumulated 15 years of cheffing experience, including time in the kitchens at the now defunct Once Upon a Vine, The Wild Flower in the Central West End and Remy’s Kitchen and Wine Bar in Clayton, he didn’t want to operate a full-service, upscale restaurant. Rather, he decided to focus on one of his favorite comfort foods: chicken wings. Thus, St. Louis Wing Co. was born.

When the chicken wing joint opens at 9816 Manchester Road in Rock Hill, diners will get a taste of wings with creative flavors like coconut curry, kalamata olive and feta, spicy jalapeño and sesame ginger teriyaki. In addition to the dozen sauce varieties for those bone-in and boneless wings, Tessler will serve up such sides as sweet potato fries with Caribbean jerk chili mayo, fried macaroni wedges, cole slaw, baked beans and other wing accompaniments.

Tessler hopes to kick off action at his 40-seat lunch and dinner locale by Super Bowl Sunday, scheduled for Feb. 6.
