One fried food door closes, another opens . . .
The sad: I returned to Newmarket to see what became of my beloved Wheelies onion rings when Mama Lena's took over that spot. Alas, the cornmeal encrusted, tender, sweet, hand-made beauties are gone. As is the roast beef. I cannot attest to Mama Lena's, I was only after those onion rings.
The glad: The Coat of Arms now offers all you can eat wings for $5 on Friday nights from 4-7pm. They are not at all spicy. They are, however, very crispy, which is just as, if not more, important. IE, I can eat crispy weak-flavored wings, I cannot eat flabby wings, unless they are incredibly spot on in flavor and spice (and in which case I would probably just lick them, not actually eat them.) They also offer barbecue flavor, sticky sweet and totally good.
