Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Review - Crazy Wings



Believe me when I tell you, sticking sticks in stuff makes eating much more exciting.



More than just a gimmick, these ‘kao chuan’ or Chinese barbeque skewers, date back over a century.



The intense charcoal notes of this cooking style really complements the namesake Crazy Wings ($2.50), best in numbing Szechuan Chilli Pepper. If you’re crazy about heat, ask ‘em to make you the BT Monster ($3) from their Haymarket store – but don’t call me if it hurts.



There is seemingly no end to stuff that can be stuck either, from Prawns ($6.50/2 piece) impregnated with pineapple...



...to whole Abalone Mushrooms ($4/3 piece); to lil’ Beef and Enokitaki Mushroom Rolls ($5.50/2 piece).



Whilst a neighbouring table of gym bunnies seemed to be enjoying the total protein hit, I carb’d up my meal up with a Chinese Spring Onion Pancake ($4) and...



...some Old Beijing Pork Noodles ($11.80).



I washed it all down with Pearl River Beer ($7), after throwing in a few greens for balance - the folded garlic shoots on the Chargrill Leaf ($4/3 piece) looked pretty and tasted great.



A few fast Crazy Scallops ($3.90) and I’m grinning like a harpy thinking: isn’t it perverse to stick a gym on top of Eat Street?
