Chicken wings are one of the most popular dishes in the West. A staple in front of a million television screens on Super Bowl day in the USA and finally a successful hangover cure by Colonel Sanders himself.
Head over to the land of Leprechauns and potatoes and you have another nation that have succumbed to the chicken wing phenomenon.
Ireland is home to some of the most hearty dishes the world has seen. Steak & Guinness stew, Colcannon and Potato & Mushroom Soup to name a few. A restaurant that takes these traditional dishes and places them off to the side and brings in some main stream goodness, with a unique Irish influence, is Elephant & Castle Restaurant in Dublin.
The restaurant originated in New York and then opened its Dublin restaurant in 1989. Since then the restaurant has been a foodie landmark to tourists who have come far and wide to try its much talked about Spicy Wings in a Basket.
Marinated in a sweet and spicy marinade make Elephant & Castle's wings a delicious starter to any dish. Definitely living up to their reputation and teamed with a blue cheese sauce give a perfect flavour coating to the already delectable wings.
When you are in Dublin make sure you head to the Elephant & Castle and get stuck into this sticky basket of goodness. Remember to stock up on serviettes as you will need them.
