This Chicken Joint Turns Global Cuisines Into Wing Flavors | Food Skills

  • Published on Jul 24, 2017
  • When it comes to chicken wings, the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" often holds true. But at International Wings Factory, chef Deepak Ballaney is pushing chicken wings past the standard of Buffalo sauce and blue cheese. Located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the shop serves more than a dozen sauces, rubs, and dips with its poultry, offering customers a culinary trip around the world in the process. From flavors like black pepper teriyaki and Vietnamese chile mango, to a secret, Scoville-packed "Cry" sauce, IWF's wings should be on every chicken-lover's bucket list.

    800,000 is spicy, but it's nowhere near the spiciest even just in NYC. Also, Sarasota has the hottest wings period at 420 munchies cafe. If you can get through even half the batch you're a fucking champ.

    Amazing sauces. I do prefer mine to be cooked before tossing the winds in it. Tossing hot wings in cold sauce is weird.

    Not sure that the scoville scale works like that. Habenero's are 350k and scotch bonnets are 250k. Even adding them together doesn't produce an 800k shu sauce.

    I love and despise the promo videos. I love them because I know the buzz it can create, and for the most part the featured "spots" look to have amazing food. I despise them because you never provide an un-canned dialogue on their food nor environment. I would recommend doing the promos and following up with a true to life experience in these establishments. In my opinion if you don't do this they just come off as paid promos..... delicious looking promos... but without the experience your walking a fine line. I love what you do, but I know everything has room for improvement.

  • sprflyenya

    cool commercial guys I guess at the end of it, thanks to adblockers, you got about as much out of this as I did.
    this shit could have actually been worth watching if you, I don't know, told us something about anything beyond "this is a restaraunt and they make flavours".
    also, sean's last interview was pretty weak. sean, you are a solid second to narduar, but you know that last shit was lazy as fuck

    Looks like they put FOOD SKILLS in the thumbnail and in the title for these more commercial-style videos. Easy enough to spot and ignore if you don't like them. That's what I'm going to do. Granted, I don't use the notification bell. I can see where that would be annoying.

      backoffbucko 30-40 years ago you couldn't give away chicken wings or shrimp. Good marketing campaigns have made them so popular. Wings are the most expensive part of the bird even though they're one of the worst parts.
      I remember reading about a prison some 75-100 years ago that fed its prisoners lobster everyday and they complained the food was like torture.
      And just a few years ago nobody ate Patagonian tooth fish because it sounds awful. Rename it Chilean Sea Bass and now its one of the most expensive fish out there.

    Habanero heat range: 100,000-350,000SHU. Scotch Bonnet heat range: 100,000-400,000SHU. Put them together, and these somehow get you to 800,000SHU...

  • TheDrFunkenstein

    That shit prolly expensive. I'll stick with the wing spots I know and love. That's the thing about wings, you can't really fuck it up.

  • Spicefreak

    Because two 350,000 SHU chillies totally make an 800,000 SHU sauce...
    I'm guessing its real heat comes from extract.

      Look to those that have the most to gain. Follow the money.
      You are such a historian tell us how many sauces in the line up now are of their own brand, are affiliated by the company that produces their own brand, or are obscure enough to be launched by their own branding compared to the first season?
      Draw up the pie chart and show us the holy shit they are selling out slice.

      It appears, Trotr, based on your link that they wouldn't necessarily have to disclose that to viewers (depending on jurisdiction), but they do have to disclose to TVclip.

    • Morphe
      Morphe Year ago +1

      lol no not at all. nobody has to disclose ads.... almost everything you watch is an ad, undisclosed. every product you see in movies, music videos, tv shows, all ads... never disclosed... what made you think someone has to disclose when advertising...

      You are just repeating TVclip lore. Show me this law.

    • Purple Haze
      Purple Haze Year ago

      Trotr NOOO WAY! really : 0
      what do you mean by one way or another, are deceptive methods, initiated , or?
      will the disclosure be fully comprehensible to the user.
      for instance what if they just put a discrete poster in the background while filming in small lettering which visible in 720p.
      does this count idk, please provide some examples.

    • Trotr
      Trotr Year ago +3

      Yes. If a video is sponsored in any way, the creator of the video has to disclose that one way or another by law. This is not a sponsored video because it doesn't say so anywhere.
