The Hand Cut Chips were rather delicious. Thinly sliced with a thin crispy coating, the batter was fried to a beautiful golden brown and provided a sensational crunch. The potato within was soft and well seasoned. Perfect.
We also enjoyed the Cous Cous Salad, which was rather soft and fluffy. The slight tang from the lemon juice provided a refreshing twist and was the perfect accompaniment to the chicken.
The Mild Glory Wings were enjoyable though rather unremarkable. The hot sauce drenching the outer was definitely on the hotter side of mild, yet lacked any depth in flavour apart from being spicy. The chicken itself was rather inconsistent too, with some pieces being overcooked and rather tough.
The Lemony Pepper Glory Wings were disappointing. With a generously, salt-coated outer, it was so overwhelmingly salty that the wings were practically devoid of all other flavours, and you could just feel the tingling sensation of having too much salt on your lips. The lack of pepper or lemon flavour, coupled with being extremely over-fried, made for the driest and saltiest wings I’ve ever sampled in my life. Shame.
The Dips were downright disgusting. Both the Ranch and Honey Mustard were watered-down and bland, with a very watery consistency. It’s as if they just diluted a store-bought sauce with water and put it in plastic containers. Seriously, why bother?
The terrible seasoning, combined with the extremely flawed execution, made these the ultimate Wings of Disappointment. Honestly, I would’ve been a much happier penguin just smashing some Wicked Wings from KFC instead.
Would Penguin Eat Again?
Yeah…. No thanks. If your Fried Chicken can’t even beat KFC, it’s really not worth your while.
