Chef and Owner Kevin Ordonez is taking Asian street food to another level at Alkaline. His popular wings are lightly coated and then fried twice for optimal crunch. He then carefully brushes each one with a sweet and spicy sauce so they don’t lose their crispiness.
Chef Jim Casey has dreamt up a menu that takes inspiration from the islands, as it’s loaded with seafood dishes that have a Caribbean twist. The flavors of the tropics shine through in Chef Casey’s assortment of next-level bar eats like the banana garlic chicken wings that Guy described as "a calypso band meets Metallica."
Former NFL player Steve Smith has traded in the pigskins for wings, which he slings at this Stockton joint. One popular option is the Damn Hot, which Guy called a "good old-fashioned funky, crunchy wing." For this dish, the wings are coated in a paprika-laced flour mix, fried and then slathered in a fiery sauce whose heat factor is kicked up with cayenne, smoked jalapenos and green chiles.
