Frankie's New York Buffalo Wings in BGC

Frankie's New York Buffalo Wings in BGC

With the objective of tasting something new, we decided to go to BGC, and since we already developed a love for buffalo wings (as you may have read in previous blog posts), we locked our eyes on Frankie's.

Meeting a long queue
It was a Friday lunch when we visited Frankie's, and upon reaching 2nd floor of the building where the restaurant is located, we stumbled upon a long queue. Apparently, we were 6th on the list, and we waited for about 30 minutes just to be eventually seated. Well, although it was a hassle, we took it as a positive sign regarding the foodie experience here in Frankie's.

Limited seating capacity and lack of comforting spaces
Upon entering the restaurant, I came across a narrow walkway. It felt cramped with all the tables and chairs squeezed into a small space. I guess this somehow explains the long queue as well. Putting this aside, the interior features a modern look with Western elements to go with the "New York Buffalo Wing" theme.

Lean and American
The menu of Frankie's is lean and predominantly American -- buffalo wings, burgers, fries, cheesecakes and etc. This is typical for a restaurant focusing on buffalo wings, as we observed the same for Buffalo's Wings N' Things, Wing Stop and Fatburger & Buffalo's.

The large-cut French Fries (P90) was a great appetizer as it was rightly salted and crisp. It came with a sour cream dip.

Lacking visual vigor, the Spaghetti Bolgonese (P180) was slightly overcooked and greasy, but the sauce was oh-so-fine. It captured what I look for a bolognese, when it comes to the overall taste!

The Fettuccine Chicken Stroganoff (P180) was creamy and milky (possibly from evaporated milk, which is just my guess). The chicken on top was tender adding delight to the pasta dish!

Here in Frankie's, buffalo wings called Wings St. are priced at P199 for 1/2 dozen and P369 for a whole dozen. There are 13 flavors to choose from with varying level of spiciness.  

Salted Egg - came in a powdery form that mimics the goodness of Irving's Salted Egg Potato Chip.

Smokey BBQ - a good mixture of smokey tang and sweetness, suitable for the Filipino taste buds

Frankie's Classic Buffalo Spicy - very tasty kind of spicy! The spiciness is more of a flavor rather than sensation. The best among those we've tried 

Go boneless with Frankie's Boneless Chicken (P189). It has the same goodness but crispier and of course without the bones.

The Salted Caramel Cheesecake (P150) captured what I love for a cheesecake -- not too moist but still creamy, and with potent cheesy taste 

The Oreo Cheesecake (P150) featured the same goodness as the one above, but with subtlety of chocolate with the crushed oreo

Basically, that covers everything for our experience! Here's a photo of us after enjoying some wings here in Frankie's!

Frankie's successfully brought delight to us with its great tasting buffalo wings, although other dishes might have lacked either visual zest or dynamism in flavor. Food is reasonably priced, which may explain the surge of foodies in the restaurant. Unfortunately, with the multitude of diners, servers often got confused making it difficult to call their attention for orders or assistance. You may also need to endure a long queue depending on the time and day. In a nutshell, Frankie's may not be the best buffalo wings place in town, but it was satisfying in its overall.
