Ask Mr. Gold
QUESTION: I know Jessica Simpson won’t touch Buffalo wings because she doesn’t eat buffalo, but I do, dammit. Eat Buffalo wings, I mean. Where can I find them without darkening the door of my local Hooters, a practice that has traditionally brought me nothing but grief?
—Jason, Playa del Rey
ANSWER: The chicken-wing binges I know about have generally taken place at one of the several locations of Furaibo, where the teba saki chicken wings flow as generously as the cold beer. They know a thing or two about deep-frying things, Japanese chefs. But I recently encountered an order of Suicide Wings at Buffalo Wings & Things in deepest Culver City, and I was not displeased. At all. 11499 Jefferson Blvd., Culver City, (310) 391-7801.
