Review: Wingstop @ Nu Sentral Kuala Lumpur

When Wingstop opened its first outlet in Malaysia, I remember being extremely excited, because we don’t have that many places serving good buffalo chicken wings here. I even braved the evening traffic to Mutiara Damansara just for it – something I would never do under normal circumstances lol. But I guess it was because I had set my expectations too high, that when I actually got to try them, I was sorely disappointed. You can read the review here.

This time around, I was bumbling around KL after a trip to the art gallery and came across another Wingstop, this one a branch at Nu Sentral. It just so happened I had a craving for fried chicken, and decided to give them a second chance…

Ordering mechanics were pretty much the same as the last time I went to a Wingstop – self-service via tablets, after which they give you a round buzzer that lights up when your order is ready. Gotta say their service was really good though! A staff member is on hand to explain how to order if it’s your first time.

There are close to a dozen flavours to choose from, and you can also opt for different cuts, such as boneless, tenders or classic. I went for the 8 pc classic with two flavours; Buffalo and Garlic Parmesan. The set also came with a fizzy drink and a side (onion rings).

Verdict: Slightly less disappointing this time around, but still not the best American-style wings I’ve had (that goes to Frankie’s). I know buffalo wings are supposed to be sour because of their vinegar base, but the sourness was a little overwhelming. The parmesan cheese on the other hand was underwhelming, with a thick, hard batter. Not to mention the chicken was greasy. It wasn’t terrible but again, I guess I had high expectations for it and it just didn’t hit the mark. Chicken was greasy as well, couldn’t finish eight pieces. The only thing they did well (again!) was the onion rings, which were tasty and crisp.

All in all, a ‘meh’ experience, although it did fare a little better compared to my first visit. Would I come back again? I know they say three strikes, you’re out, but with WingStop, perhaps two is all there is.

  1. I see that Wingstop is holding out there in MY. The Wingstop branches in the Philippines have all shuttered since 2018!

  4. I loved eating at Wingstop when they were still open here in Manila. My favorite flavors were Louisiana Rub and the Cajun something. All of their other flavors were very average for me. Maybe third time’s the charm?
