Friday night we were headed out of town. A quick train trip to visit family and I was really excited to snag wings at the Longo’s Maple Leaf Square store to eat on the train for dinner. I hadn’t realized until Friday how close they were to each other and hadn’t tried out the new entrance from Bremner into Union Station. It’s practically around the corner from the departure area. So great for zipping over and getting dinner to eat on the train.
So that is exactly what I did.
Friday’s deal: Chicken Wings
What you should know: They are sold COLD… in fact cold enough they may be on the edge of frozen. COLD! I planned for them to be a hot treat for our train ride, they weren’t.
Our experience: well… once I got past the disappointment of the wings being cold, they were damned tasty! I’d get these in a heart beat for train rides from MLS and bus trips from Elizabeth street if they were hot.
The wings were meaty, though I did pick through the packages a bit.There were enough in the 18 wing package to leave me full. They were very saucy, which I like. The sauce was a standard BBQ wing sauce, tangy with a little burn. They were just wings, no evil breading, which I like. Unfortunately I was so hungry I didn’t get photos of them between the packaging and my mouth… (I’ll try and rectify this soon).
Gerry says “they were actually quite good, just shockingly cold!”
I don’t know how they would be heated, since we haven’t had another Friday night free to try them out.
Another option for a Friday night, if you aren’t rushing to get on the train is to eat them at Longo’s where the same $6.99 gets you fewer wings but they’d be hot served with a side of veggies, and you can order a beer too!
What we’d tweak: Sell some hot. Maybe not all, but some so those of us looking for a quick hot meal deal can grab them. They were tasty… just very very cold.
Best for: taking home and heating up.
