The last time I went out for booze was years ago. Just when I thought that my timidity has caught up with me, a wing night event at a relatively new, hip diner in Kapitolyo came up. Suddenly my boring mid-week freelance schedule was not just about booze. It was booze paired with delicious wings! The venue's called Wishbone and it's along the restaurant-dotted East Capitol Drive of the Pasig City dining district.
It was already my second time at Wishbone. After a few innovations done on the menu, a revisit seemed necessary. Aside from my target of downing a bottle or two, I was there to taste a new chicken wing flavor called Legendary Dark Caramel Blue Ginger Wings. At the onset, nothing seemed legendary about it. The 6-piece treat looked like any ordinary chicken wing I've gormandized on in the past, so I initially chugged on my single-friendly alcohol and gazed at the full-house party crowd inside the narrow dining area.
Wing It With Caramel
I opted not to order dirty rice anymore to go along with the chicken wings because I wanted to determine how smooth the latter would go with my drink. Incredibly, the chicken wingettes proved to dispute my initial assessment. Tasting the steady, potent flavor of its blue ginger-infused dark caramel and savory sauce gave the assembly a remarkable taste that I managed to finish all by myself. I might have left a piece there, but the mounting satisfaction of tearing into the rest of the five pieces was intense.
Other New Treats
I'm so looking forward to sampling Wishbone's other new treats in the menu like the insanely termed Balls of Glory which is mozzarella cheese-stuffed meatballs and Kitayama wagyu beef served with blue cheese cream sauce. There's also the Nachos with Kitayama Wagyu Cheese Dip to consider as a snack for my next visit.
The next time you're lost in Kapitolyo finding a hip restaurant to kill time with friends, check out Wishbone. Its red sliding door marks the spot for your next American-oriented meal and more.
