Chili Blast

rattango | Mar 8, 2008 10:46 AM

Hi. I wonder whether anyone knows of restaurants serving extremely hot dishes. While I know it's not everyone's cup of tea ... and some find the thought offensive ... some of us --- myself included -- crave an extreme chili blast on occasion. Certain cuisines such as Sichuan or Thai are known for hot dishes. Sadly though, most restaurants in this area tone them down. Spicy and Tasty is an example. It's "death" scale hotpot in the old basement location was a true chili blast, it has become more, well, refined ,in its new location (though it is still excellent.)

Anyway, if anyone knows of any place serving some extreme chili hot dishes, I would sure appreciate knowing about it. Thank you. (Brick Lane dumps capsium extract to make it's "phaal" hot, something genuine phaal does not need.)
