I returned from LA last night and already miss CHILE MY SOUL on Balboa Blvd. in Encino. I was glad to see that it had expanded since my last visit. I can't stop thinking about the nachos, and the "soul fries" which are spiral cut and served hot and salty with a mayo/ketchup sauce. The best chile I tried was Espresso Black Bean, rich, earthy vegetarian with not too much heat. The next best was the Roasted Garlic ( big roasted garlic cloves, not too spicy either, but medium spicy is my preference.) It is possible to try any flavor before you buy it ( samples in tiny paper cups like Baskin Robbins). I didn't do this, but its a nice touch . The thing is, everything I ate was varying degrees of wonderful. Any other flavor recommendations at Chile My Soul for next time I'm in LA.?
