Was looking through some of my saved Instagram posts that interested me of places people have eaten in Tāmaki Makaurau and Sneaky Snacky came up. As I was staying near Karangahape Rd, I thought i would give it a try.
When I arrived, I was really surprised to see it in an Asian Food Court that was tired and needed a bit of a refresh. However, people were lining up to give this place a try and sometimes dirtier the better and more genuine it is. I decided to order with my eye instead of my stomach and ordered the Original Glazed Combo and two wings.
When the food was ready, you also got some disposable gloves. A great idea, but I do wonder, if they are great for the environment. So how about the food? The wings were nice, I went for the medium level of spice and I would have preferred a bit more spice. Also, they were quite sweet, which I found interesting. However, they tasted really good, they were not dry and really convenient having the gloves to eat the wings with. The bread at the bottom was also sweet. I usually don’t eat it, because the purpose of the bread is to soak up the oil but this bread was good.
The Burger, I was surprised. Not sure why, but I was. If you didn’t know they bun is a doughnut and the insides are toasted. You can also get the burger with Cheetos or Flamin Hot sprinkled on top. The kimchi fritter was nice and did add a bit of a kick to it with also the spicy milk sauce. , However, I did feel the patty was a bit too overdone for my liking and slightly dry for my preference, but I do prefer a pinker side of cooked meat, but it was chunky.
Overall, I can see why this place is popular. The fried wings were good and I think the next time I would try the Hot Chicken Donut. Personally for me, the Original Glazed, is not for me, but I would try it again to see if it is different to the one I had this time. Oh, also they sell Ramen. Would be interesting to see what that is like as well.
