Local Chef wins praise from Young & Hungry for his wings made with UncleBrutha's™ ALLSAUCE™!

Posted by Brennan Proctor on

Chef Chris Wright's wings aren't just good; they're INFAMOUSLY GOOD! So much so that the Young & Hungry raved about them this week in a blog on WashingtonCityPaper.com. Wright, Sous Chef at Hogo, first developed his "Infamous wings" when he discovered UncleBrutha's™ ALLSAUCE™ in the kitchen of a restaurant at which he worked previously.

While his wings feature ALLSAUCE™ No.10, Wright also uses No.9 as well and is rumored to be working on a special version of his famous mac & cheese with it.

"One taste and I knew, THESE were more than just your typical 'hot sauces' and I couldn't wait to try them in some recipes! "

Wright has worked with 5 "guest" chefs as part of the "rotating kitchen" concept at Hogo where different chefs are given the chance to create a "featured" menu for the month. This month was his turn in the spotlight so he pulled together a menu of some of his favorite southern comfort foods featuring the likes of fried okra with romesco sauce, jalapeño hush puppies, Cajun fries, fried green tomatoes and more. 

Since it's debut, Wright's menu has received only rave reviews and as Young & Hungry's Jessica Sidman wrote:

"But the crowd favorite by far is "Chris's Infamous Wings," a recipe he's been perfecting for years but hasn't had a place to showcase until now. The wings are covered in a sauce made with Uncle Brutha's™ hot sauce, butter, lemon, Wright's secret blend of spices, and garnished with chunks of garlic." 

So hurry on over to Hogo for a taste of Wright's Southern Comfort menu featuring his "Infamous Wings" before it's too late! Hogo is located at 1017 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20001 just across from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
