With restaurants serving chicken popping up left and right, it’s now harder to stand out. So the competition tends to boil down to two things: price and flavor. The ideal chicken meal must be flavorful enough to stand out from the crowd, but the price has to be just right to keep people coming back for more.
Chicks and Fins ticks all those boxes—plus unique flavors that draw in a crowd. Some of their most unique creations are Honey Volcano Wings, Volcano Wings, and their unique take on the classic nachos with cheese.
First up is a blend we love: Honey Volcano Wings. These wings are a combination of spices and real honey to get that ideal combination of sweet and spicy. It’s a burst of flavor from the first bite as the spice hits you then the honey glaze kicks in to balance the heat. These wings don’t put spice on the spotlight like other wings do. The Honey Volcano Wings aren’t just hot but flavor-filled too.

If you want more heat in your wings, the restaurant’s spiciest creation, the Volcano Wings, is for you. This bright red wings topped with chili flakes gives an immediate burst of spice from first bite, and the heat only builds up the more you eat. To up the spice-level even more, get a side order of Creamy Sriracha dip for these wings to take on a whole new level of heat.
To add some more flavor to these spicy wings, Chicks and Fins also have other dips such as Ranch, Honey Mustard, Blue Cheese, and Garlic Sauce.

The flavors don’t stop at the wings. Even the appetizers in this resto have a unique twist to them. The Flavored Nachos use seasoned tortilla chips topped with cheese to create a flavor that’s unique to them. Order wings and nachos with iced tea on the side for a complete meal.

As much as chicken is a budget meal favorite, the title of ultimate Filipino budget food belongs to other dish: siomai. It’s not the most usual compliment for chicken, but Chicks and Fins, taking from the sharksfins side of its name, serves buckets of siomai topped with roasted garlic as part of its line up.
With its unique flavors, Chicks and Fins does not need unlimited deals to become a local favorite—but as a thank you to their customers for a year and a half of successful business, Chicks and Fins is currently unlimited! Drop by every Saturday and Sunday until October 27 for unlimited siomai, nachos, rice, and their premium flavored wings.
