Pangkha brings new chicken wings to town, and they’re serving up quite a delectable variety of flavours to keep everyone happy. An initiative by Elma Arifeen and Kazi Naveed, the minds behind Pastryarchy, Pangkha’s goal is to send your platter on a journey through sweet, sour and spicy all the way to flavour town – insert Guy Fieri meme where necessary.
Mainly a delivery service, their operating hours usually vary between 2 PM and 8 PM, during which they take orders and send out your food via couriers. It’s best to keep up with their Instagram @pangkhabd to know their daily delivery hours and offers.
The options for ordering are either directly through their Instagram and Facebook page or via Pathao Food. With prices starting from BDT 350 for 10 wings, all the way up to their party bucket which consists of 40 wings, two large sides and four different dips, it’s safe to say that their prices are pretty reasonable.
Above all, what really makes their chicken wings amazing is the combination of quality produce, crispy skin and sauce combination. Very few places go for the combination of crispy skin coated with different sauces, usually, the standard is wings in hot sauce, which usually turn soggy.
Add to that the wide variety of flavours available ranging from spicy to sweet, there’s a little something for everyone. They have around seven flavours — but not all of them are available at all times — in the styles of achari, spicy buffalo, honey garlic, fried herb, orange-glazed, peri-peri, and mango hot sauce.
I got to try almost all the flavours listed above, but my personal favourites were the honey garlic, spicy buffalo, and the mango hot sauce. The honey garlic wing is exactly what you would imagine a wing would taste like when dipped in garlic mayo and glazed with honey: magical. The spicy buffalo is a definite must-try for anyone that likes a bit of heat, and the mango hot sauce is the quintessential sweet and spicy combo that really works during the summer.
However, I didn’t really love the orange-glazed wings as much. These wings were mainly sweet, and the sauce is similar to the kind you’d have with duck dishes at Chinese restaurants. But I’m sure that someone will enjoy this particular flavour, mostly if sweet and sour is their thing.
Their sides of wedges are also very well made, with each piece cut nice and thick, and they go really well with both their garlic and spicy mayo dips. I’d definitely recommend ordering as much extra dip as you can afford. It’s worth it.
Finally, I have to give props to Pangkha for their packaging. Their wings come in plastic buckets, but they attach a little message to every parcel. The message basically offers customers a challenge of reusing or recycling their plastic bucket and suggest sharing how they did so to receive future offers. It’s definitely a great initiative to get people into recycling via offering an incentive.
