Dude, if there’s one thing I like more than crushing a pound of chicken wings, it’s crushing two pounds of chicken wings…for the price of one. And down on Bloor St, just a slight breeze from Dovercourt, there’s this funky little dive with a wicked awesome wing night serving up all kinds of flavours–and they’re 2-for-1 on Tuesdays, son! Plus, they’re named after Miami’s football team AND Patrick Swayze’s all-time greatest film!? Welcome to Hurricanes Roadhouse!
Now, a pound of wings is normally 14 bucks here, but if you order two different flavours on Two-Fer Tuesdays, they do charge ya 50 cents extra. Although that price also includes either fries or veggies and blue cheese, so that’s still a pretty sweet deal. And while I don’t normally eat vegetables, you know I went for the veggies and dip–dude, this is body by blue cheese, bro!!!
So, in the one hand we’ve got a pound of Red Hot wings, with a vinegary kick that’s probably just Frank’s Red Hot sauce. It does kinda linger with ya a bit, though. But if you want a real spicy wing, get the Gale Force–they’ll blow the paint offa yer barn, bro!!!
But now here’s where they funk it up a notch. On top of the 12 different flavours on the menu, they also give you a Flavour of the Day, which could be anything under the sun… And last Tuesday’s FotD was BBQ Bacon, so you KNOW I had to order it! You’ve got the smoky BBQ taste of their Memphis BBQ sauce, but then you get bites of bacon juice all over the place–at least, it must be bacon juice, cuz I don’t see any actual bacon on the chicken, but it still tastes like bacon. It’s like a Christmastime miracle in Flavourtown!!!
Of course, you KNOW I’m not gonna be drinking some hippy-dippy, GMO-friendly kale smoothie, Michael Bro-lander! Instead, we’re chugging back a couple Yellow Trucks, this complicated blond lager from Draught Dodger Brewery. This beer’s a little bit hoppier than your average lager, but it still goes down smoothly with some bacon-flavoured chicken wings!!!
