It has been a while since I cheated on my strict diet plan, I’m glad that I managed to stay healthy and eat clean for a few months now and I’m doing great in the weight loss department. Good news is that I’m finally starting to see my 6 packs (I’ll write a separate post on my experience for getting 6 packs) but I still have a long road ahead to get my abs more prominent. So I decided to invite myself for a cheat full of guilt meal at the newly opened Lord of the Wings (no not the movie) restaurant.
So I finished my workout at the gym and instead of having my healthy low-fat & low-carbs & high-protein meal I headed to Discovery Mall at Soor Street in Kuwait City. As I arrived at Lord of the Wings (from now on I’ll call it LOTW) I noted that design was pretty simple with tables scattered around, I can tell the waiters got kinda confused when they saw me in my training shorts and Nike t-shirt sitting at the table but they were friendly enough to give me a warm welcome. So I picked the relatively small menu and saw a variety of traditional food items (Viz. salads, soups, burgers, beverages among others) but clearly I was there to taste their chicken wings.
They handed me a pencil to help me with customizing my order and it kinda reminds me of college years back in the day, those pop quizzes remember? They basically serve three kind of chicken wings; traditional, grilled & boneless. To help minimize the guilt I scanned their menu for any healthy & low calorie items (I know I’m in the wrong place) but fortunately I managed to find some items. For starters I picked their plain nachos that comes with tomato sauce (tasty & light with the sauce), grilled potatoes with blue cheese sauce (tasty but the potatoes felt like they needed a little more pepper & salt but that’s easy to tackle).
As for the main dish I tried their grilled wings (tasted good when dipped in the Buffalo mild sauce), there was a variety of sauces for the wings plus the free soda refill. The restaurant manager insisted that I try their boneless wings along with the Garlic Parmesan sauce, I was reluctant at first but I gave it a go and my impression is that the taste was good but my remark to them is that the wings were soaked in oil but they said customers can ask for less oil if they wanted. The funny part is that they provided me with gloves so I don’t have to worry about getting my hands all smeared, they also used stickers to differentiate between customized orders, good idea. Prices-wise, they varied between KD1.5 to around KD3.5 . So to sum it up, I was satisfied with LOTW because we don’t have restaurants that are specialized in wings in Kuwait since Nando’s was shutdown long time ago.
