When it comes to spice, the team at Wings and Tins don't mess around. They've created a challenge that has attracted thrill-seekers and spice enthusiasts from all corners of Sydney. The infamous "Doom Wings" have earned a reputation as the hottest wings in Australia, and they are not for the faint of heart. These fiery bad boys are made using the Carolina Reaper chilli pepper, a pepper so intense it’s held the title of the world's hottest chilli in the Guinness Book of World Records since 2013. With a scoville rating of 1.6 million, it's a pepper that demands respect and courage. The Doom Wings have become a legendary test of heat tolerance, attracting those who want to prove their spice-loving prowess.
The Carolina Reaper chilli pepper is a hybrid of the Pakistani Naga pepper and the Caribbean La Soufriere pepper, developed over a decade in the US to become a spice that pushes the boundaries of heat. The result is a pepper that looks as dangerous as it tastes, with a distinctive, menacing appearance. Be prepared for an explosion of heat that's not for the uninitiated.
The intensity of the Doom Wings is not to be taken lightly. It's so hot that those who order it at Wings and Tins have to sign a waiver. What a testament to the sheer heat that these wings bring to the table. The Doom Wings are a rite of passage for spice aficionados, and the waiver serves as a badge of honor for those who dare to try them. But also, please don’t sue them, they're nice people.
At Wings and Tins, you have a few options when it comes to taking on the Doom Wings Challenge. You can start cautiously by ordering a singular Doom Wing for $5, but even one is enough to make you break into a sweat. If you're feeling bold, you can opt for the "Russian Roulette" approach. Order a basket of wings, and the team will add one sneaky Doom Wing to the mix. The catch is that you won't know which one it is, adding an element of suspense to the experience.
For the bravest souls, there's the option to go all-in and order a full basket of Doom Wings. This is the ultimate challenge, a fiery ordeal that pushes your limits. However, if you manage to complete this fiery feat, you'll earn the right to write your name on the "Wall of Pain", forever commemorating your place in Doom Juice History.
If you're one of the few who can't get enough of the Carolina Reaper's intense heat, Wings and Tins' sister venue, La Farmacia, has a chaser treat for you. The Reaper Margarita is a daring drink that complements the Doom Wings perfectly. It's a bold and spicy cocktail that continues the adventure, made from Carolina Reaper infused tequila.
