After 23+ years, Lina Brown Young gets her father’s mysterious recipe from John Young. You won’t find these wings on any of Buffalo’s other menus, but you won’t regret that this is Buffalo’s original and iconic dish, often referred to as the “lip and liver shot”.
  • Wings Imperial Consort Consort Tiny Thai: The wings of the imperial consortium are the oldest chicken wing recipe in the world, dating back to the Tang dynasty in China, around 750 AD. Originally inspired by Yang Guaifei, one of the four beauties of China, the wing is known for its sweet taste and alcoholic flavor – one of the evils of the emperors (this variant is cooked in port, sherry and cognac). When you were still found in Chinese villages, it was hard to find you to find this food anywhere in the United States … to this day.
