Cititour Review:

Wangs is the kind of place anyone would want in their neighborhood.   Executive Chef Sara Nguyen is combining Southern cooking with Asian flavors.   The result is food that is simply too delicious to ignore.   Nguyen, along with her partner, Evan Franca (of Brooklyn Crepe & Juice), are serving up fresh fare from a kitchen about the size of a large closet.  Quality organic ingredients are being used along with earth-friendly packaging, including wooden spoons.

The signature dish is Wangs Korean-style fried chicken wings.  We devoured a batch of "hot" and "not so hot" wings.  They were nice and crisp on the outside and moist on the inside.   The wings are drenched in a special sauce and then sprinkled with black beans, green onions and slices of red chili peppers.   The combination is perfect and addictive.  Sides include an out-of-this-world corn bread served with a pat of salted scallion butter, and red potato salad with a black sesame aioli.  It is the best takeout I've had in quite some time.  So good, it didn't even make it home.

Other dishes include organic fried chicken with Asian spices ($14 half/$24 whole) and a 5-spice Chicken Banh Mi sandwich ($12) with fresh cucumber, cilantro, jalapenos, pickled carrots and daikon radish topped with a coriander and lime aioli.   Other dishes include mac & cheese with fried onions, coconut milk grits and collard greens with Chinese sausage and ginger.   Ask about their lunch and dinner boxes. 

Wangs is a real treat.  Hopefully, they'll be coming to my neighborhood!
