There's not much in the way of appetizers, but the chicken "wangs"—probably the only thing on the menu that would fall into that category—are also the best reason to visit the restaurant. Frenched and glazed with a sweet, spicy gluten-free sauce that involves chili powder, garlic, onion, soy sauce, sugar, and vinegar, these fried chicken lollipops are crisp and beautifully seasoned. They're not searingly spicy at first, but the heat builds quickly. I've never had the much-lauded Korean-style wings at Great Sea, so I can't compare the two, but I wouldn't be surprised if MAK becomes another destination for aficionados.
If you do decide to order something besides wings, though, you can try out a chork. A cross between chopsticks and a fork, they're more fun to look at than to use: the fork end works fine, the chopsticks not so well.
