The King of Wings will be opening in Downtown Stouffville sometime in February. The new restaurant is filling the space left vacant at 6244 Main Street, formerly Adore II. Operating the restaurant is Shankar Rasanayagam, Jamuna Bala, and Saru Gaureeson. Shankar and Jamuna are cousins, both are the aunt-uncle of Saru. Jamuna lives in Stouffville, Shankar just south of the Stouffville border, and Saru in Scarborough.
The family is originally from Sri Lanka, immigrating to Canada beginning in 1985; Saru was born in Toronto. Saru named the restaurant. “We were already in the wing business, and I thought the word ‘King’ had a little kick to it,” said Saru.
They will carry over 123 wing sauces, several beer taps and have 10 television screens, with many sports channels being available. “My favourite item is Devil’s Ranch Wings, Shankar’s favourite is the Mexican Fries, and Jamuna’s is the veggie wrap,” said Saru. There are kids’ meals as well.
