Villanova's D.C. Stars Miss Mumbo Sauce
Washington Post college sports scribe Zach Berman volunteered to contribute a Bog item from Boston, where he's covering the NCAA tourney's East regional. With Villanova's massive D.C. contingent (ready to take on Duke), it wasn't that hard to find something. Zach writes:
Villanova senior swingman Dwayne Anderson has lived in the Philadelphia suburbs for four years, although the Washington-area native still holds strong ties to his hometown. He's a big Redskins fan - the Wildcats have a strong Redskins contingent on the team - but there is one specific item that he misses most about Washington.
"Chicken wings and mumbo sauce," said Anderson, from Silver Spring. "From any Chinese restaurant."
Whenever Anderson makes it back home, he immediately locates chicken wings and mumbo sauce. When his family comes to Villanova, they bring him chicken wings and mumbo sauce.
"My favorite thing," Anderson said.
Freshman big man Maurice Sutton, from Upper Marlboro, independently added the Chinese "carry-out," where one could get the chicken wings and mumbo sauce, as what he misses most from his hometown.
Sutton said he eats Philadelphia cheesesteaks every day, although he would take Ben's Chili Bowl over any cheesesteak restaurant in Philadelphia. He enjoys chili dogs from Ben's, but his preference had more to do with staking his Washington allegiance than professing this area's dominance in delicacies.
One thing is clear: Any want-to-be entrepreneur looking for an idea can start with a Chinese carry-out restaurant featuring chicken wings and mumbo sauce near Villanova's campus. There would be at least two steady customers.
"Back in D.C. and in the area, there's a lot of carry-outs with the mumbo sauce," Sutton said. "They don't have that in Philly."
