Masarap na kuwento: Pinagmulan ng Buffalo wings

Kilalang bar food at appetizer ang buffalo wings na bahagi ng American cuisine.

The name “buffalo wings” has its roots in Buffalo, New York.

May kuwentong nagmula ang pangalan nito noong 1960s when a local establishment called the Anchor Bar invented this delightful dish. Ang owners nito na sina Teressa at Frank Bellissimo ay mga naghahanap noon ng paraan to serve a late-night snack to their son and his friends. They decided to deep-fry some chicken wings and toss them in a spicy sauce made of hot sauce and butter. Ang resulta? Naging sensation ito, and soon Buffalo wings became a favorite among the locals.
