Wings of Glory, South Melbourne
Reasonably new to the scene of South Melbourne eating, Wings of Glory takes residence off Clarendon Street and conveniently near the office. I’ve been a few times across lunch and dinner and tried a chunk of the menu permutations. Most of the time its a wings and sides combo with customisation from what flavouring on the wings. sides, the seasonings on the chips and whether your meat has bones or not. So many choices.
I believe I’ve only ever gotten the boneless variant (as I like being clean like that) and five to six seems like a good amount to get along with some sides. A large combo is quite shareable. The fries end up being more like crispy potato slices, which is a really good thing.
Meat-wise, I enjoyed the honey variant which ends up being like Asian honey chicken (a good thing again), the lemon seasoning flavour is a bit too overbearing and I my mild and cajun were good options too. The spice factor can go up quite high and we enjoyed some entertainment in the form of a table attempting the spicy wings challenge. The chip seasonings remind me of the ones you get at market twisty potato, I wouldn’t be surprised if was the same powder. It’s DIY which makes it even more fun.
Overall decently good but a limited menu.
Pro tip: They do $1 wings on Wednesdays which could come out mildly cheaper. And they seem happy to mix up the flavours if you want some this and some that.
