Now, I don’t usually direct people to touristy areas to eat. There is, however, one strip in Kuala Lumpur where, despite being definitely touristy, I love the food – and I’m not alone in my devotion as even local food fanatics come here. The street is called Jalan Alor, it’s right in the middle of the city and I head here for chicken wings. Wong Ah Wah is a massive restaurant at the end of the strip and the wings in question are their signature. There’s always a queue to get in. They cook their wings on a rotisserie over charcoal, so they’re charred on the outside, with juicy meat and smoky flavours inside. They go so well with a Tiger beer it’s not funny. You’ll come out of here smelling like barbecue but so happy you ate these wings. I promise you.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
10 chicken wings
sriracha chilli sauce, to serve

Marinade

Quantity Ingredient
4 red asian shallots, diced
4 garlic cloves, diced
6cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and diced
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
1 tablespoon honey

Method

  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add the chicken wings and turn to coat in the marinade, then cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Return the chicken wings to room temperature and heat a chargrill pan or barbecue chargrill to medium. Grill the chicken wings for 5–8 minutes on each side, turning constantly as they grill, until nicely browned all over and slightly charred.
  3. Serve immediately with sriracha chilli sauce.
