Two words that will undoubtedly make every meat-eater happy are CHICKEN WINGS. So flavoursome, so comforting, so satisfying. Luckily for us, there is a bevy of spots in Perth dishing up some tasty chicken wings.
Because we're turning 10, we want to feature your recommendations, so we threw it over to you to decide on the 10 best chicken wings in Perth.
Get your napkins ready and have a wet wipe handy, because here are your picks of Perth's best chicken wings.
The heat-freaks behind Perth’s spiciest chicken don’t muck around with their wings, which are fried to perfection, Nashville-style. Served simply in your spice basting of choice (sorry, we’re not brave enough to go the ‘Blame Drasko’ level), with a slice of their housemade pickles, you guys love Drasko’s ‘spicy, juicy, crispy wings’ and recommend chucking on some of Mama’s Beans to really top off the experience.
Joondalup, Morley, Nedlands, Northbridge, Waterford and Fremantle
Varsity means business when it comes to wings, with a variety of fried chicken wings on offer as well as some damn good vegan wings, that even meat-eaters have told us are bang on. You can go the BBQ wings, with Varsity’s BBQ smokey sauce. You could do the hot wings, served with their spicy sauce. Or take Jess’ advice and go the classic boneless buffalo wings with blue cheese sauce and call it a day.
Northbridge, Victoria Park And Fremantle
Epic New York-style pizzas, the coolest retro games, boss-level cocktails—the crew at Palace absolutely nail the good things in life, and their chicken wings are no different. You reckon these bad boys are super juicy and love the different flavours, and we’d have to agree. Better yet, they serve ‘em up half price every Wednesday from 4pm, so you know what to do, folks.
Percy Flint is South Freo is a local fave for good reason. Unbeatable garden bar vibes, loads of craft beers on tap, a killer cocktail list and a mighty little food menu packed with mop-your-plate-clean level share plates...There’s so much to love we forgot all about the wings until you guys reminded us (thanks for that). Spicy hot wings lathered in buffalo sauce and served up with a banging blue ranch that we could happily eat with everything—yeah these wings are the absolute bomb. Nice pick.
According to some of you, Short Order is serving the best American-style wings around. Big call, but I guess we’ll happily polish off a cheeky half kilo of their juicy buffalo wings with blue cheese ranch any day of the week so you might just be right.
The Peach Pit
Sitting pretty on the Scarborough Esplanade, The Peach Pit was up there with your most recommended wing hot spots. Lacey tells us they’re the best—super spicy and saucy with a blue cheese sauce— so we might just have to swap our regular burger order for a serve next time we visit.
While we normally hit Furaibo up for a more refined Japanese feast, we were glad you guys reminded us about a little thing called the Tebasaki Wings. A house specialty, these Japanese wings are fried to perfection and soaked in their golden secret sauce. Nikki says she can’t stop eating them, and we can one hundred percent see why. You can order anywhere from 7 to 28 wings at once and choose your own heat level, so everyone can have a crack at these.
Alabama Song & Joe’s Juice Joint
Roll up your sleeves, because the good guys at Joe’s Juice Joint and Alabama Song (yes, we combined these into one because they're coming out of the same kitchen) dish up some of the juiciest wings around. But as you like to tell us, the best part is they’re just 50 cents a pop every Wednesday night at Joe’s and every Sunday night at Alabama Song, so you’ve got no reason to stop.
East Victoria Park, Northbridge And Wembley
You should already be familiar with RoyAl's Chicken & Burgers for those epic burgs, but a lot of you reckon they’re also the place to go for knock-out chicken wings. Hot, spicy and damn delicious, Kai reckons they’re the best by far, and the best news? They do all-you-can-eat wings on Wednesday nights for only $20. Yes, please.
Ultimate Fried Chicken
Fremantle, Northbridge And Morley
If you’ve ever seen someone walking around Northbridge with a greasy white paper bag filled with a huge slab of crispy fried chicken bigger than your head, chances are they’ve been at Ultimate Fried Chicken. The little hole in the wall, which you’ll also find at the Freo markets and in Morley’s Coventry Village, is all about (you guessed it) serving up the crispiest, golden fried chicken in every form, so yes, the wings are bloody good too. Nick says they’re well seasoned, crispy, spicy, juicy, mouth-watering and satisfying, and that’s basically everything you could want in a wing, so we’ll take it.
Once you're done with Perth's best chicken wings, slice it up with Perth's best pizza.
