It doesn't look like much from the outside, but then you're hit by the aromas wafting out — a powerful melody of fried chicken, with sweet and spicy harmonizing. Inside, you'll be treated to fried chicken, waffles, and hot sauce, but that's just the beginning. Hot Sauce and Panko's creative riffs on chicken wings keep fans coming back again and again for flavors like KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), featuring chili paste and garlic, bulgogi wings with savory, garlicky sauce and pickled Thai chilis, and green wings coated in a fragrant mixture of cilantro, ginger, jalapeno, and house spices. This is not fast food, so don't expect to be in and out — each wing is made to order, and during busy times the tiny kitchen can be pushed to its limit. (If you're ordering large quantities, always call ahead.) Show patience, and you will be rewarded with the crispiest, juiciest, tenderest wings you've ever tasted.

I love Hot Sauce and Panko. You do have to wait and the crowds can get tight, but it's sooo worth it.
