Run by a group of hip youngsters, the whimsical hand-painted walls and a big old tree in the middle of their courtyard make for a pleasant place to chill, but it’s the chicken wings that are the main draw. Choose from everything from the spicy chicken wings with a plate of mangoes in syrup and spicy honey to tomato-flavored Korean style wings and "Biantai La" (Perversely Spicy) flavor. Cold beer is available to wash it all down.

Soooo much potential, often let down though

I used to love Hot Bean chicken wings but my last couple of visits have been disappointing - huge buckets of thawing chicken wings in tubs on the ground, running out of staple things (like mash potato or mantou) and general lack of cleanliness. A year ago this place would get 4 stars but lately the youngsters who run it seem to have their heads in the sand a little. Pity, so much potential. Still, if you're in the area, give it a go if you like to eat local style, and if you put on the blinkers, their wings are great.

I'm surprised this place has gotten any reviews coz it's AWESOMEE.
I don't want your expectations to soar sky high, but do expect old hutong style atmosphere with a splat of creativity from everyone including customers.
I'm not a huge fan of chicken wings, however, there's a couple flavors here, i.e. plain & tomato, that is pretty good. See how many wings you can strip. There's also good pizza, scallops and if I recall correctly, lots of ice-cold beer. Get ready for finger licking!
