Hot Stuff

Posted by:pete

The award winning NY style Orange Buffalo wings have teamed up with Cleaner Products for the opening of their new outlet in London’s Brick Lane. The Orange Buffalo does hot wings the way they're supposed to be done: decadent, messy, and off-the-scale spicy. We'd go so far as to say they're some of the finest you're likely to find in London. Six pound-fifty will get you eight buffalo wings (along with a drink and chips / onion rings), with some blue cheese dip, celery sticks and a choice of sauce. Now this is where things get interesting. Three sauces are on offer: the standard American style, the piquant woof-woof, which is made from a blend of Naga and Scotch Bonnet chillies, and the Viper. The latter, recently kept behind the counter so as not to frazzle the taste buds of unprepared diners, contains a small amount of a Naga Viper chili which, at around 1m on the Scoville scale, is one of the hottest in the world. For some perspective: your standard Jalapeno is around 5,000 Scoville units, while pepper spray gets up to 1.5m or so.

The Orange Buffalo can be found at Elys Yard part of the Truman Brewery complex, just off Brick Lane (nearest stations: Liverpool Street, Aldgate East, Shoreditch High Street).
