Sweat on' the brow? Help me find...

Spicy Chi Chef | Sep 14, 2007 01:05 PM

As summer fades and the evenings get cooler, I'm looking to find a restaurant dish or two that can make the nose glisten, the brow sweat, and provide a nice lasting balanced heat that singes but doesn't burn. Maybe even inspire a little sputter and cough!

A couple that come to mind: the pho at Pho Ha in Bloomingdale, the green salsa at La Pasadita, Gaeng Gari at the Opart Thai House on Western, Vindaloo in my neighbor's kitchen. Still on a quest to find some Hunan or Sichuan cuisine that fits the bill. I'd love to add to the list-any cuisine.

I'm not looking for suicide wings with mindless heat rather the type of BYOT restaurant food that makes the plate sing songs and the eater gloriously happy.


BYOT: Bring-your-own-towel.
