Hearing a lot about Randy’s Wooster Street Pizza in Manchester, we have to try it.
If nothing else to see if there is a New-Haven-style pizza in the north of the state worth the drive.
With many options here, we first heard about this place as having good wings.
And what would a trip be without trying the fried mozz?
Luckily, The Fry Guy is an appetized sampler with a few options:
Mac and cheese bites
Ugh. Kraft mac & “cheese”.
That’s about all you need to know.
The Rating: Mac and Cheese Bites
The only way Mozz Sticks go wrong is if they aren’t cheese enough or not cooked enough.
Neither is a problem here.
So pretty standard mozz sticks.
The Rating: Mozz Sticks
These fried ravioli are doughy and nice.
It tastes exactly what it soungs like.
The fact that there is only cheese inside is a little boring, so it could use more.
But good overall.
The Rating: Fried Ravioli
Okay, so the Fry Guy appetizer was fine, but a little disappointing.
Next stop is the wings.
We got both buffalo and Mango Habanero.
Traditional Buffalo wings
These were super light on the sauce.
The flavor is a little bit powdery with no depth of flavor outside of heat.
Overall a pass
The Rating: Traditional Buffalo Wings
Mango habanero wings
Best thing we ate here.
These wings have a decent spice with a nice sweetness.
They blend very well.
A nice char from grilling provides some more flavor yet the wings stay tender.
The Rating: Mango Habanero wings
Now for the main attraction.
You can sort of see the ‘Wooster style’ with an ultra thin crust.
The red peppers are a disappointment, tasting almost like straight out of the jar at the last minute.
There isn’t a lot of sauce or cheese, which keeps it crisp.
Good, but nothing great.
