Chicken wings. Many have dubbed them as ‘the greatest snack ever created by man’. People are willing to queue up for a long, long time just to get a plate of steaming hot, greasy, glazed wings in their hands. KL is full of hidden gems where you can get the best chicken wings out there, and the fact that these places have gained thousands of fans over the years pays homage to their wing expertise. Check out the following places when you want your chicken wing fix (but I bet you know of these places already):

Even though Fatty Crab is known far and wide for their crab dishes (hence the name), your meal will not be complete without an order of their fried chicken wings. Because the wings are flash fried, it develops a perfectly crisp outer skin that crunches with every bite, balanced with the moist and juicy flesh on the inside. They’re also seasoned excellently, which is what makes the dish next level. Better order at least two plates, you’ll be polishing these off in seconds!
