There’s little we love more than chicken, let alone the best kind of chicken 一 WINGS! Be it sweet and saucy or hot and crispy, you can never go wrong with this fresh finger food. Here are a few dining joints that are worth a try in Cairo’s world of wings:


The Tap

Offering buckets of 12 and 24, The Tap, without doubt, serves up some of Cairo’s best wings. With classic flavours like buffalo, teriyaki, and sweet chilli, The Tap further livens up the experience with options like Pineapple Express, Hint of Mint, and Mango Habanero. Topped with ranch or blue cheese, these wings are where it’s at! They even have all-you-can-eat deals on Sundays 一 what more could you ask for?

Find them in Maadi, New Cairo, and Sheikh Zayed

Kokio Chicken

What has become one of Maadi’s hottest spots for chicken, and now with a second branch in New Cairo, Kokio Chicken offers wings in 5, 10, 15, or 20 pieces. Their selection of flavours includes spicy, honey, soy, and garlic 一 they have something for everyone! The Korean restaurant adds the international influence lacking in the fast-food wing options in Cairo.

Buffalo Wings & Rings

Jared’s Bagels & Micah’s Grill

Maadi-based breakfast and bagel shop, Jared’s Bagels, and its extension, Micah’s Grill, provide two types of chicken wings 一 Spicy Texas, reminiscent of regular buffalo wings served with blue cheese or ranch, and Asian Style, a creation similar to other classic flavours like teriyaki and Thai sweet chilli. This is the way to go when looking for a quick wing fix!
