Best Chicken Wings in the U.S.
Sticky Glazed Chicken Wings with XO Sauce and Fried Garlic
After marinating wings in lemongrass, garlic, ginger and soy sauce, chef Ken Oringer slow roasts them until the fat has rendered, then deep-fries and glazes them in his signature XO sauce. His fantastic homemade sauce is salty (ground dried scallops, shrimp and razor clams), meaty (Chinese dried sausage), spicy (chiles, garlic) and sweet (palm sugar). The wings are finished with crispy fried garlic bits that cling to the sticky sauce. cliorestaurant.com
