I would say that I’m a pretty adventurous eater, but these Ribena Wings ($9.9) were... A little too funky for my liking. 🥴
Sweet-savoury dishes can easily go from a harmonious union of two distinct flavour profiles that complement one another — to a disaster of overwhelming saccharine-sweetness. Unfortunately, their Ribena wings fell under the latter.
The Ribena did not enhance the flavour of the wings in any way. On the contrary, we found ourselves trying our very best to avoid the sweet blackcurrant syrup. 🥵
Interesting idea but not something I will order again.
(Suggestion: introduce a tangy/ acidic element to neutralise the syrupy-sweetness + add garlic/onion to bring another dimension to the dish)
