Year of the Takeout Day 156: Mei Zhong Wei

Chicken Wings With Garlic Sauce from Mei Zhong Wei (57 Pitt Street, 212-529-5029)

Mei Zong Wei doesn't exactly reinvent the culinary wheel -- the restaurant takes common fried chicken wings and slathers on equally common garlic sauce, then charges $4 for the alleged specialty.

That said, the chicken wings with garlic sauce come out quite good. Though this gravy tends to be over-sweet on every other protein, the salty, oily fat balances out this sugary vibe, making for a delightful juxtaposition.
