Chicken wings may seem like humble bar food, but there’s actually a technical reason why they make the perfect snack. In addition to being bite-sized and hand-held, more than any other part of the bird, the wing has the closest skin-to-meat ratio, which when fried, makes for the perfect balance of crispy and juicy.
Many restaurants in Houston take that textural combo a step forward, with the addition of sauces, seasoning, and sides that reflect the city’s truly multicultural makeup. From soul food classics to wings flavored with herbs straight from the garden; from soy sauce to fish sauce to barbecue sauce — this map has wings that are spicy, sweet, and everything in between.
