Located in Aberdeen Centre in the food court. Hong Kong style fast food joint.
Ok, hands down the best deep fried wings yet. Definitely artery clogging but one feeding of 3 wings won't kill will it? Anyhoo, so glad my errands to Richmond prompted a reminder of this place I've wanted to try and finally did today! Heard tons about it from online foodies, blogs and reviews and boy they were right, KFC Church's doesn't close, the deep fried wings here are the bomb! Food + Value a 5 for sure, $3.50 for huge juicy wings made to order but as for the service, it was lacking as the lineup was olympic and the ambiance, well its a food court, can't expect much but better than most food courts.
I was in the mall and I remembered the positive reviews for the crispy wings at this place. There was a big lineup and by the time I got to the counter they were out of the famous peppery deep fried wings. I got an order of the marinated wings instead and they were great. Tender and juicy and packed with flavor. Plus you get 8 for $3.75 which is a good (but not amazing) deal. Service was brisk and it was in a food court so average marks for service and ambiance.
Definitely worth it for the wing fans.
I absolutely love their fried food. Fried chicken wings are piping hot, crispy outside, tender inside, no thick batter. They are not greasy like Kentucky fried chicken. Drinks are cheap.
I also had their fried squid/calamari. It's awesome. The portion is very decent and it's very inexpensive. Usually when you order calamari in other stores, you get tiny portion. Not here! I got lots calamari for just one order and it filled me up. It is so tasty, I can't decide which one is better, chicken wings or calamari. It doesn't have thick batter over calamari to disguise small portion like other stores in town. They give you solid portion of calamari, honest.
I also ordered that noodle dish everybody was ordering once out of curiosity. I am not into that noodle dish. Not my favorite. It's not bad. I just don't have craving for it and probably won't order again. I guess it's the Hong Kong thing, if you grow up eating that, you always want it once in a while. It's not an easy dish for "food explores"(people who want to try something new or unfamiliar) to like.
Sometimes there's a line. They can get really busy. They take your order quickly then you wait for your food. If you order noodles, it's very quick. If you order fried food, then you have to be very patient to wait for a while. I say fried food is definitely worthy waiting. I always have craving for their fried food.
In terms of ambiance, you are in a food court, so you get the idea. But Aberdeen food court has way better ambiance than other food courts if you sit yourself near the window. I actually don't hate the ambiance because I always choose to go all the way back and find a seat near the big window. It's quite soothing sitting near the window. You get to have lots daylight (especially in cloudy winter) and a view.
I am surprise that there were no review on Wo Fung. It is located in the food court at Aberdeen Centre. They were around when the old Aberdeen Centre exist, even back then, people would line up for their incredible cheap food esp. their chicken wings. I was sad when they tored down the mall. Several yrs. later, new Aberdeen Centre open up and sure enough, Wo Fung opened up, I was so happy.
You can't miss Wo Fung, its the only eatery in the food court that they have people line up. Their chicken wings is still the best ever. Because I don't read nor understand cantonese well, but I believe WF is famous for their wings, just judging from what people order incl. myself. Their most popular dish are their soup, wings and their cold drinks esp. their ice lemon tea. Its really cheap! I usually ordered their wings and ice lemon tea for my afternoon snacks, then go over to Beard Papa for their creeam puffs.
If you are a wing lover, this is a must place to try out.
I am so sad to hear that they have changed owners...the new owners have only changed one letter to the name so many people haven't noticed. but the food and drinks just aren't the same anymore. The drinks aren't made like they used to be and the lemon tea doesn't taste as good. I will be mourning the loss of the best chicken wings in town!
