I've worked across the street from the takeout/delivery joint Kool Bloo for about a year now. I went there once when we first moved into the building... and hated it. I take full responsibility though. I ordered a shawarma sandwich from a place with nary a spit. I should know better. Still though, I've avoided this place since then. Until today. They advertise wings in huge letters on the outside of the building (which Steve noticed when he picked me up for our trip to Buffalo), so I guess it's about time I gave them a try.
The wings come in a combo deal that set me back $9.75. It includes 5 wings and fries. Not exactly a huge portion, but, as you may know from my last post, I'm not a fan of huge portions anyway.
Right from the first bite I could taste the recognizable combination of Frank's Red Hot Sauce and butter. If I had to guess, I'd say the normal 1:1 ratio was slightly skewed in favor of the sauce, giving it a little extra heat. There were also some added seasonings which kicked them up a bit. The wings were relatively plump with a decent amount of meat, but very little (if any) crisp in the skin. These were pretty average across the board. I wasn't disappointed because I didn't have high hopes, but I wouldn't go out of my way for them either. Put simply: they'll do.
The fries on the other hand, those were good. I'm getting those again.
