Food and the City’s Deliciousness List : Big Wangs North Hollywood

11 Apr

Cajun Buffalo Wangs

Hey Hey,

First a lil history,

The Deliciousness List ( say that 3 times fast!) is a coveted list of restaurants and eateries that display excellence in making me smille after I consume their food.  (trust me it ain’t as simple as it sounds.)  While many establishments will not make it to this list, don’t beat yourself up about it, I just have a sophisticated palate…..it’s me….it’s not you…well then again it is you :/

First up on the Food and the City Deliciousness-List is the wing-tropolis Big Wangs in North Hollywood California.

Big Wangs is a great place to eat wings, drink, and be merry with the people you hold dear…..Their happy hour specials are awesome, and their  wings are of the best caliber to be found in Southern California.  I frequent the North Hollywood location, but they do have other locations in Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles, and Valencia.

Lemon Pepper Wangs

Big Wangs has a variety of wing flavors: Mild Buffalo, Hot Buffalo, Garlic Buffalo, and Lemon Pepper. Cajun Buffalo, Chipotle BBQ, Teriyaki, Rochester, and Sweet & Sassy. I personally love the Garlic Buffalo, and the Lemon Pepper wings.

I like this place because like the name “Big Wang” implies the size of the wings are larger then most proprietary wing spots, also the flavor of their sauce is amazingly good.  For all you sport lovers there are TV’s everywhere to fill your every sporting need.  I also luv that they give you big cups for your non-alcoholic beverages so you don’t have to keep hunting down a staff for a refill.

Not down with wings… then we can never be friends, just kidding…. Big Wangs offers an extensive menu that goes beoyond chicken wings, other selections include  Shepard’s Pie in a skillet, Quesadillas, Nachos, Soups and Salads, Burgers, Ahi Sliders ( yea.. Ahi Sliders yummers), Sandwhiches, and Pizza, and Dessert.

So congratulations Big Wangs, you have made it to the Effin-Delicious List, aren’t you happy, feel free to send a sista coupon *cheeze*

Eat! Super Bowl Eats Day 5! Meatball Mini Burgers Baby Yeaaaah!

4 Feb

Super Bowl Sunday is like Thanksgiving without having the having to pretend to like unlikable relatives part.  You have total control over the invite list, and there is no such thing as too many potato chips.

This day wouldn’t be complete without the greatest invention since Tang, the slider.  Over the past 5 years Americans have been obsessed with making mini-me’s of great comfort food classics.  The meatball has taken the spotlight lately on the slider frontier, so for day 5 of Super Bowl Eats, I give you….. The meatball slider yeaaaaaaauhh..

Meatball Mini Burgers


  • Tiny Buns
  • 1  can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers refrigerated buttermilk or original biscuits (8 biscuits)
  • 1  egg
  • 1  tablespoon water
  • 2  tablespoons sesame seed
  • Meatballs
  • 2  teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2  cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 3/4  cup chili sauce
  • 1/4  cup water
  • 1/4  cup yellow mustard
  • 2  teaspoons chili powder
  • 32  frozen plain meatballs (from 28-oz package; about 3 cups), thawed
  • 8  slices (3/4 oz each) American cheese, cut into quarters


Heat oven to 350°F. On ungreased cookie sheet, place biscuits 1 to 2 inches apart. Cut each biscuit into quarters, but do not separate pieces. In small bowl, beat egg and 1 tablespoon water. Brush egg mixture over tops of biscuits; sprinkle with sesame seed.
Bake 14 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly; separate biscuit quarters.
Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in chili sauce, 1/4 cup water, the mustard and chili powder. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened.
Add meatballs to chili sauce mixture. Cover; cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until meatballs are hot.
Split each biscuit quarter to make tiny bun. Fill each bun with 1 cheese piece, 1 meatball and some of the sauce. Secure with toothpick.

Eat! Super Bowl Eats Day 4: Fried Tamale On A Stick, Oh My!

2 Feb

I don’t think one can ask for anything more delicious when it comes to these bite size beauties.

These  tamale remix is small in size, but mega in flavor. For day 4 of Super Bowl Eats, I give you……..

Fried Tamale on A Stick


  • 1 Pound Prepared Taco Meat
  • 3 Cups Masa Harina
  • 3 Cups Warm Water
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • Oil for frying


Make your favorite taco meat, whether it be with Old El Paso seasoning from a packet or a homemade spice blend with sauteed peppers and onions. Allow to cool.

Prepare tamale dough by mixing butter and masa harina and salt, then slowly adding the water. The dough should become wet and moldable. It should be around the consistency of peanut butter.

Flatten some dough in your hand, then add a spoonful of your taco meat, then wrap the dough around the meat forming a ball.

Steam your tamale balls for about two hours.

Remove the balls from the steamer, dust with flour, and fry for a few minutes until browned on all sides.

Serve with salsa.
