Feature – Street Food Spotlight – Wing Shack

This week in Street Food Spotlight, we chatted to the lovely Tom from relative newcomers Wing Shack.

1. How did the idea for Wing Shack come about?

After working in the City for four years after university I joined London’s finest Wingmen at The Orange Buffalo in Shoreditch. Here I fell in love with working in street food and learned about the art of buffalo wings.Wing Shack came about whilst I was living in Spain, figuring out what I wanted to do next. All I knew is that it had to be food because after my experience working in the city, I knew the next chapter had to be a labour of love. I was moving back to Brighton and there were no speciality wing traders about so I thought I would give it a go and wing it!
2. What are your main influences?

My family, friends and my love of good food. I really just want to express how I feel about food and hope people love it too. Also, Mike and Nick at Orange Buffalo. They really showed me the ropes and took my love of wings to a whole new dimension. I have mucho respect for these guys.

3. What’s your signature street food dish?

Signature dish? Well, wings and my buffalo sauces of course. We recently launched the WingWich which is the essence of a buffalo wing in a sandwich: challah bread, pulled chicken, buffalo sauce and blue cheese dip. Sourcing local and and free range products is very important to me, all our chicken is free range and bread is made locally in Hove.

4. If you had to sum up your street food in three words, what would they be?

Peace, Love and Wings
