Our General Tso's Siracha Wings have won best of Westchester!

We came up with the General Tso's Sriracha wings as a special, initially. It has been our best selling flavor since. Wings have been a passion of mine for years. I had worked for Steve Cross years ago (the guy who owned Striped Bass and the Cabin) and I learned that most wing sauces have a good amount of butter in them to give them that nice creamy consistency. Later I consulted for BonChon Korean Wings in Manhattan. I learned about the kaleidoscope of Asian sauces and spices and figured it would be a good idea to blend the East and West wing philosophies.

We do our wings in the traditional Buffalo style in that we don't marinate or season the wings before we fry them. This helps keep the wings crispy We source the largest possible Jumbo wings and fry them in 100% Canola Oil at 350 degrees. It is important to double cook the wings to really get them crisp. We cook for 5-6 minutes, allow to cool, then cook the second time for about 10-12 mins - then mix while hot with the General Tso's sauce, clarified butter and some sriracha for that extra kick.  

General Tso's sauce is pretty simple. Soy Sauce, chili paste, rice wine, rice wine vinegar, ginger and a little corn starch. We sweetened it up with some orange juice instead of sugar. It's considered a sauce from the Hunan province in China, but, the Americanized version is rooted in New York City. It has always been a great pairing for chicken, so, it wasn't a huge stretch of the imagination to apply it to wings. I prefer to serve it with Ranch dressing as the chunks of blue cheese in Blue Cheese Dressing tend to overpower the flavor. The added butter is the key to velvety texture and flavor. Add a little Sriracha for some fire and voila! Take a bite and first you get a tangy-sweet crunch, followed by a buttery mouth feel with a warm, not-too-spicy finish. 
"Main courses skew heavily towards the comfort food zone, with fried chicken, chicken pot pie, meatloaf, baked mac n’ cheese, and fish n’ chips — with shepherd’s pie a popular special. A variety of other seafood, pasta, and beef dishes round out the entrée offerings.

All of the tavern’s desserts are made in-house — especially their not-to-be-missed Oreo cheesecake. Amchir has the cheesecakes made in smaller sizes — and therefore, more frequently — to keep them arriving tableside as fresh as possible.

On the bar side of things, SMT has found success hosting dart night on Tuesdays, trivia competitions on Thursdays (winning team gets a gift card, second place team a round of shots), DJ on Fridays, and live music on Saturdays."
