“It’s all about the breading,” says Joseph Mackinnon, manager of Halifax’s pick for Best Chicken Wings. He won’t say what exactly the Hydrostone pub does to make the chicken wings so irresistible: “It’s a secret recipe.” If you roll up to Lion’s Head for wing Tuesday you’ll find there's a wing for everybody, whatever your flavour preference or spice tolerance. “We’ve got everything,” Mackinnon says. But it’s not just the chicken wings that keep people coming back to Lions Head every Tuesday. “It's more about the environment and how you make people feel when they come,” he says. “We all try to make conversation with you, we don't just give you your wings and walk away.”
