It’s no secret that I love Buffalo Wings with a little bit of the ole Blue Cheese Dressin’. Those who know me, know that I will put hot sauce on just about anything. In fact, I think I have, on several occasions, had heated (pun intended) discussions with friends about the various American hot sauces and their distinctive flavor, heat, and texture profiles. I am a hot sauce nerd.
A few weeks into our time in Amsterdam, I started getting a hankering for some Buffy wings with Blue Cheese Dressin’. I found a place that delivered and ordered myself a dozen “American Style Buffalo Wings”. They didn’t have any Blue Cheese Dressin’, but I figured that I’d be fine without it. After all, it was really the delicious fiery hot sauce flavor that I was after.
About an hour later, I get a buzz on the intercom and buzz up the delivery guy. I get my wings and tear them open. Immediately the disappointment set in. These were no “American Style Buffalo Wings”. I was staring at twelve soggy, lightly breaded, BAKED chicken wings. Tasty delicious wing sauce? None. This was not going to work. I needed my fix. I had to find some hot sauce.
