Habanero Wings at the Old Pro, Palo Alto
Whoa - the Old Pro has moved downtown (541 Ramona Ave, 650-326-1446). I have fond memories of the lip-burningly hot habanero wings from this beat up old sports bar years ago, and now things seem to have changed. Yes, the new location is much bigger, but I don't remember the wings being so meaty and tough before, nor do I remember the habanero sauce being mildly sweet. And they definitely didn't have those fancy little fried noodle bits sitting underneath in the past. I was pretty let down today as a result, but maybe my memory is a bit hazy given all of the beer that is usually consumed with such things.
