The Magic Wingdom, an independent chicken restaurant on Dormer Place in Leamington Spa has scooped the top spot in both of the Judge’s awards ‘Best Buffalo’ & ‘Best Wild Wing’ at The World’s largest Wing Festival, Wingfest.
The festival, which stipulates vendors may only sell 2 flavours of wing took place in Digbeth, Birmingham last weekend. The Wingdom went on to come second in the same categories of ‘The People’s Choice Award’.
There were 21 of the countries best ‘Wingslingers’ competing at the event including ‘Poor Boys’ & ‘Griedy’s Wings & Strips’.
The Magic Wingdom restaurant opened in 2021 and this was its second ever foray into a street food event.
You can visit The Wingdom Tuesday – Friday 5.30-9.30pm & Saturdays 12-9.30pm and they will be winging their way to Leamington’s Food Festival on September 10th & 11th, the highlight of town’s food calendar.
Owners Sam Cornwall-Jones & Frankie Griffiths are both “blown away” by the win and hope to promote this success over the coming months.
“It’s great to have such national recognition during such a difficult time for hospitality and it will hopefully raise our profile in the town”
