ARE you looking for something new that would excite your taste buds? How about chicken wings?

Minsan, you have to wing it to know where the great (chicken) wings are.

And right on time, we found a newly opened resto along Visita street corner Pablo Ocampo street in Makati City called Makati Wings.

Smack dab in the corner of Pablo Ocampo and Visita street, you can’t miss Makati Wings


The place is not that big in general, but enough to entertain fair amount of customers. The attractive thing about the restaurant ay ang kanilang aesthetic: almost everything is white. From tables to chairs and walls. Hindi extravagant ang overall look but it has its own appeal.

Diners have to wait for their turn dahil nga maliit ang place, especially during lunch and dinner time. But it is all worth the wait once you’re seated.

You will also be drawn by extreme curiosity of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows! It would even attract you more with the unlimited wings signs outside the establishment.


For the affordable price of P219, you can opt for the unlimited wings promo. Sulit ka talaga sa unli wings option nila, but there are other options: You can have two pieces of wings for P89 or four wings for P169 only.

For flavors, you will have a hard time to choose dahil meron silang nine choices to choose from: barbeque, rosemary pepper, Asian curry, American buffalo, honey glazed, garlic cheese, honey butter and creamy pesto!

We tried all the nine flavors and listed our best three:

Asian Curry

Rarely seen and tasted this flavor on wings. Surprisingly, it’s delicious. A bit spicy but the tenderness of the chicken matched it. The flavor goes beyond the exterior, di mo talaga pagsisisihan i-try ang flavor na ‘to.

Asian Curry is one of our top pick flavor


If you want to stick to something familiar, the barbeque flavor is definitely to go to. Lasang-lasa mo yung sauce to a point na aakalain mo meat yung buto ng chicken wings.

What we loved about this wing: Fantabulously finger-lickin’ taste bud’s delight

Honey Glazed

The sweetest of them all. Kung di mo bet ang maalat at maanghang, then this flavor is the best option to take. The first bite would say it all, it’s sweet because of the honey.

Aside from chicken wings, there are other choices you could have:

Jalapeno (P85)

Cheese filled, mayo drizzled tong melting, jalapeños

You can have Jalapeno sticks to complement your chicken. Hindi mo mapapansin na jalapeno yung nasa loob ng lumpia wrapper because the additional melted cheese inside negates the spiciness of the jalapeno.

Cheeseburger (P145)

Unli wings plus burger = Busog

Also a bestseller, the quarter pound cheeseburger is best eaten while hot. Hindi sobrang kita ang patty at first sight pero once you take a bite, an explosion of flavors will hit your mouth. Tender, firm and juicy and patty niya at masarap dahil fresh ang tomatoes sa loob. You can advice on how you want your meat cooked whether it’s well done, medium rare or rare.
