You Have to Try the Cauliflower Wings from Pumachug in Downtown Clawson

Four years ago I fell in love with cauliflower wings. They are tasty, they are usually vegan, and they are the perfect appetizer to split with someone. Eventually, this love affair became an obsession which turned into a full-on quest to find and try as many different types of cauliflower wings as I could. I have discovered that every restaurant has its own way to cook cauliflower and a unique sauce to dip it into. Some spots slather it in the sauce while it's cooking and others wait until it's coming out of the oven to give it some zip. Some restaurants cut the cauliflower into little pieces and others serve it up in large chunks that look a lot like traditional wings. These little touches can make or break the wings.  Personally, I want something mid-size. super crispy, with an interesting sauce that I can't find anywhere else, and that is exactly what I found at Pumachug.
Pumachug is a scratch kitchen in the heart of downtown Clawson. They have a unique menu that features bar and grill staples like salads, burgers, and fries alongside a FULL vegan menu, including brunch and appetizer options. They also have an extensive menu of craft cocktails and a LARGE beer list with some unique choices that you won't find at other places in town. But. their wings are what brought me in the door. I was told that they were some of the best in town and they did not disappoint.  They were mid to large size, very crispy, and had a unique sauce that you can't find anywhere else. It wasn't too tangy or too sweet, it was "just right" as Goldie Locks would say. It was also the biggest portion of wings we have ever gotten. In fact, all the portions at Pumachug were very generous, which meant I got to enjoy the wings and the rice bowl I ordered during two separate meals. I feel like the only thing better than enjoying a great meal is getting to revisit it later that night or the next day!
