Cairo's Best 9 Restaurants for Chicken Wings
From traditional tangy Buffalo to ultra-crispy Korean fried versions, we're here to make you live your best chicken wing life.
Chickens have wings but they still can't fly. This is not a coincidence. The (carnivorous) universe created chicken wings for eating not for flight (sorry, vegans. Like, really, really sorry). Who are we to disagree with the universe and not eat chicken wings? But other than that, we really just love chicken wings. Does that make us bad people? We hope not, but here's how you can get your hands on some of the finest wings in town anyway.
Buffalo Wings & Rings // Sheikh Zayed, Sheraton
In all honesty, we're not the kind of people to judge a book by its cover, but if the book is called Buffalo Wings & Rings, then we expect it to be about some mad wings. And that's exactly what you'll get here (+ booze, if you fancy a few drinks with the posse).

All we have to say is that their spicy buffalo wings are bomb AF. Make sure they're extra spicy.

Kokio Chicken // Maadi
If you haven't had Korean wings before, let us tell you that they're going to hit all the flavour notes because they're a little sweet, spicy, tangy and savoury. And you can also have kimchi with them which is a slam dunk.
