Senior Public Relations major Dominque Fiorentino has discovered a great new source for wings, fries and a delicious sweet treat right in Glassboro.
There weren’t too many things that could get me to leave the comfort of my own home during our months in quarantine. But, The Wing Kitchen was able to lure me away time and time again.
A new restaurant conveniently located just off Rowan’s campus on High Street West, The Wing Kitchen opened just weeks before our campus closed down due to Covid-19.
I had the privilege of speaking with the owner and Food Network’s “Chopped” champion, Timothy Witcher.
This chef’s love for wings all started back in 2006. A high school culinary teacher motivated to help his students raise funds to participate in competitions, Chef Witcher began selling his wings to do just that.
After the fundraisers were over, the public wanted more. Fast forward a decade of hard work, determination, and a couple of “Chopped” competitions later: The Wing Kitchen was born.
It’s no exaggeration to say that The Wing Kitchen is the best at what they do. Specializing in a small and simple menu enables them to achieve the perfection found in every menu item. You can choose either wings or tenders from a variety of delectable sauces.
My new go-to happens to be the Honey Jalapeno Wings. Of course, you can’t go wrong with Chef Witcher’s favorite dish either, the Boneless Garlic Parmesan.
Did I mention their fresh-cut fries? They will not disappoint. Make sure you save room for dessert: buttermilk-fried doughnuts with a side of salted caramel sauce. Whatever you choose, I can guarantee you will be delighted, as everything is fresh and made to order.
With two established locations in South Jersey as well as a food truck, Chef Witcher has big plans for further expansion of The Wing Kitchen. He hopes to bring his delicious menu to college campuses across the nation. Follow @thewingkitchen on Instagram for updates on new flavors, menu items, and Wing Kitchen Express locations.
And of course, #DontForgetTheDonut.
