Koumi in Durham

They bill themselves as a Japanese restaurant, which is odd because the husband and wife owners are Thai/Vietnamese IIRC and most of the menu reflects those cuisines. I'm posting because of one dish in particular-- the fish sauce chicken wings. These are simple, perfectly fried wings but what puts them over the top is that they are kissed with the umami flavor of fish sauce. I assume the wings are marinated in fish sauce before being fried. If you have a craving for wings and want to try something other than the ubiquitous Buffalo wings, give the wings here a try.
