The ghost pepper is one of the hottest peppers in the entire world. It’s so hot that eating too much of it in a short period of time could actually kill you…
Which is why it only makes perfect sense to make a wing sauce out of it, right? The Flatiron in Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood is one of the relatively few spots in the city that offers ghost pepper wings on its menu, and they’re sure to get your taste buds tingling.
According to past visitors who tried the ghost pepper wings, they were “some of the hottest” that they’ve ever had. They may not necessarily be the hottest wings you can get in the city (places like Duff’s and Buffalo Wild Wing offers up some strong competition), but these ghost pepper wings will surely satisfy you if you have a superhuman tolerance for high spice and burning palates.
If extreme heat isn’t your thing, you can choose from a selection of 9 other wing sauces which include standards like honey garlic and sweet chilli as well as unique flavours like maple sriracha and pineapple jerk.
The restaurant also offers a wide selection of draught beers, starters and shareables, nibble plates, greens, burgers and sandwiches, desserts and dedicated brunch or late-night munchies options. See the full menu here.
All in all, the restaurant offers a casual dining experience, with friendly locals and the aesthetically-pleasing historic architecture lending the perfect atmosphere for wing night. For more information, visit FirkinPubs.com.
