I was just reading the thread about "American Food" in Australia... has anyone had real Buffalo Chicken wings/fingers anywhere in New Zealand?
I have had so-called "Buffalo Wings" (according to their menu) at Malt in Grey Lynn, Auckland and they were barely barbeque wings, not spicey and not very good. There was nothing even resembling any Buffalo wings I've had in the US. I would however recommend Malt overall - it's a great neighborhood bar, they have Monteith's on tap, and the rest of the menu is good.
Degree, a restaurant down at the Viaduct in Auckland also lists "Buffalo Wings" on their menu. We tried these recently and they were awful - just plain, deep-fried, flabby, greasy wings with a "blue cheese" sauce on the side that was also horrible (and I couldn't taste any blue cheese). Unlike Malt, which I like, I would not recommend Degree. The area is pretty and good for people watching, but the food is average and overpriced - like many of the restaurants at the very touristy Viaduct.
