Taste Test: Chicken Wings
In search of the perfect wing.
Flats or drums? Mild or spicy? Buffalo, crispy or boneless? What is it that makes the perfect wing? The Baltic Guide went to try some of the chicken wings around Tallinn. Here’s what we found out:
If you want the heat, the Ero-Style chicken wings at Texas Honky Tonk & Cantina won’t disappoint. The wings come uncut tossed in a sweet and spicy sauce that you can see the chili seeds floating it. Be warned, they are hot, like bring tears to your eyes hot.

Everyone knows the eating wings is messy business. The new Albion Bar and Grill in Tallinn’s Old Town was the only place that offered a bowl of water with lemon for cleaning your fingers. The wings were mild, yet flavourful with a classic buffalo wing sauce.

Mack Bar-B-Que is the place to go for XXL portions of classic American dishes. We tried the BBQ honey wings and the buffalo wings. The BBQ honey wings were a bit sweet for our taste, but the buffalo wings were just right and served with celery sticks and blue cheese dip.

WingStopp is certainly off the beaten track, but not too far from the city centre. True wing lovers will not be disappointed. They offer traditional, crispy, and boneless wings with your choice of one of their housemade sauces. Hot BBQ has a nice kick and when combined with honey BBQ, it’s even better. WingStopp also had the best prices, but unfortunately they don’t serve alcohol.
