Three Reasons to eat at O! Wings Plus

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

120210_OwingsWelcome to Three Reasons, an online column that tells you exactly what you’ll find at various stops around St. Louis. We won’t just tell you that a new restaurant has opened, we’ll tell you what to get there. We won’t simply report that a festival is happening this weekend, we’ll tell you what parts of it truly can’t be missed. Consider them recommendations or think of them as simple suggestions. Either way, here’s three reasons to go.

Tucked away in an otherwise forgettable Overland strip mall you’ll find a new wing joint that’s doing something memorable: hot wings with a Korean touch. Check out these three reasons to make the trek to O! Wings Plus and sample these fun fusion experiments.

1. The wings dredged in O’s Original Sauce. Wow. If you’re a wings person, you’ve tried all the permutations – buffalo, parmesan garlic, teriyaki, barbecue and maybe even the radical peanut-butter-and-jelly sauce at Belleville’s remarkable Geo’s Wings and More, which made our Short List on wings earlier this year. But we can (almost) guarantee you’ve never tried chicken wings in a tangy, sweet, Korean sauce anchored by caramelized brown sugar and red chilis. The Song family, owners of O!, knows wings, and just after the curious sauce delights you, you’ll notice that the wings themselves are succulent and juicy, just as they should be. Try a sampler plate with the Thai Chili Lime wings, too. Yummy.

2. The other Korean touches on the menu. If you love Korean short ribs, consider the bulgoki, thinly sliced beef made in a Korean marinade, used in wraps and salads. Even the Song family coleslaw has been re-made with an Asian flair – it’s mayo-based but includes sweet vinegar and spices, too.

3. There is an exclamation point within the name of the restaurant.
Hell, yes!
