Vancouver Chicken Wings Challenge

Welcome to the 5th annual Vancouver Foodster Chicken Wings Challenge. I have invited restaurants from all over the city to enter their Chicken Wings into this challenge, some entered their house recipe and others created a special Chicken Wings dish just for this challenge. Each restaurant will be featuring their Chicken Wings creation on their menu from June 6-30, 2019.

How Does this all Work? For the public challenge, you are invited to go out and order any or all of the chicken wings in this challenge, then you decide who you think has the best chicken wings creation for the People’s Choice award winners. 

Share your experiences: Social share by tweeting, instagraming or snapchating your photos throughout the challenge, our twitter and instagram address is @vanfoodster and the hashtag is #ChickenWingsChallengeYVR

Voting criteria –  some things to help you judge your favourite chicken wings creations – keep these things in mind: originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste.

Get some friends together and make a day or night of it, visit 2 places or more to share and taste the different chicken wings creations or go solo or with a friend– just remember to VOTE for your favourites
