Das Ubergeek has mentioned Tapatío Hot Sauce at least twice on this board and that reminds me of a post I have been wanting to make. I live for Hot Sauce and sometimes when eating I think that food is really only a vehicle used to deliver hot sauce. Like any other delivery vehicle some foods are better than others when adding some flavorful cargo to the load. In fact some foods and sauces need that extra kick to get moving. Ubergeek adds Tapatío to the Bar-B-Q sauce at Swinging Door to make it a whole new taste. Two sauces I like are Tapatío and Sriracha. So, what restaurants always have either Tapatío or Sriracha as standard condiments and what foods do they sell that these sauces go very very well with. Here are a few that I regularly enjoy because the food goes perfectly with these Hot Sauces.
