Based on quick search, it seems this topic hasn't been explored heavily on this board. True? Anyway, went to Chili My Soul yesterday in Encino. This was probably my tenth visit, so I like the place, but as always, it was not satisfying to my soul! Of all problems to have, it's kind of ironic. The flavor is good on most of their chilis, they're not afraid of heat, there's a lot of knowledge behind the recipes and which chili peppers to use etc etc, but somehow it always leaves me cold. Is it too low in fat? They pride themeselves on removing much of the fat from their meats, which might be bad thing ... Anyway, Chili John's in Burbank is a thousand times more soul-satisfying to me. But my real question is ... where else!? Craving the stuff these days and wanting a new experience.
