Thai style boneless wings and nachos, bro!

So, we’re hanging out at Soi Thai, this funky fresh Thai street food joint on College Street, right in the heart of Little Italy. You might not find Italian on the menu, but they are mixing Mexican up with mushu—check out these Moo Krapao nachos, bro:

So, basically, they take these corn chips, load ‘em up with spicy ground pork, then stick cheese on top and melt it with a blowtorch! It’s like culinary shop class in Flavourtown, son!

And then you’ve got their Tomyum fried chicken bites with a sweet and spicy sauce. It’s like General Tso on stick—it’s Tomyummy in my tummy!

But you know we ain’t seen na-na-nothing yet, Bachman Turner Broverdrive! They call this dish Mee Kati, and lemme tell ya, me likey! It’s got pink coconut noodles, with little pieces pork belly and then some scrambled egg strips on top? Shut the back door and open a window, bro!!!!

Now this was definitely the funkiest dish of the evening. We’re talking deep-fried mozza in a green curry sauce. So I guess there is a little Italian after all. It’s like Giuseppe drowning in curry, without the rising crust. Pretty sure I could slam six of these—if I wasn’t already drunk on noodles!

But of course, we still had room for dessert, bro! And this had to be the most outta-bounds popsicle I’ve ever licked on a stick. They take sticky rice, slide in a few mango slices, and freeze it in water till it’s solid like Metal Gear. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a salty popsicle before…but now, if they took some of that Tomyum chicken and put it on ice, that would be TheBomb.ca, righteous brosephs!

EATIN AUSTIN: I don’t always eat boneless wings, but when I do, I make sure they’re wrapped in bacon!

So, we’re hanging out at The Tavern, this funky neighbourhood bar that’s been down on the corner of 12th Street and Lamar for more than 100 years. When my righteous brosephs at The Thrillest said they had the best damn chicken wings in Texas, I knew I had to check this place out–but these ain’t yer grandpappy’s chicken wings, son!

They call these the Amazing White Wings, and they’re pretty baller to the max! You’ve got boneless chicken, stuffed with jalapeños, wrapped in bacon, and tossed with wing sauce, dude! Then there’s carrots and celery sticks on the side, some crispy fried onions, and both ranch and blue cheese dressing, bro!

The chicken is nice ‘n juicy, you’ve got a nice little kick from the hot peppers and the wing sauce, and then the bacon just wraps it all up in a nice little meat sweater. Who needs bones when you’ve got bacon, bro!!!??? (Man, I gotta put that on a t-shirt or something!)
