Thai Taste - Spartanburg - Never Again

Ciao Hounds,
Well I was so excited to try this place as I'd heard they'll make your food HOT! And I love my Thai food hot...So, I asked the host if they used extract sauces (Daves Insanity for ex) and they said no. Well, my food came out tasting like nothing but tomato paste and heat - It was awful - I asked my waitress this time if there was extract sauce used and she said of course - that's how they get it so hot. Grr. by now I couldn't taste anything (and I LOVE hot food - cooked correctly with out crappy additives) and my stomach was killing me - again, this never happens with straight chiles - Anyway - the whole experience just left a bad taste in my mouth. Next time I'm in Spartanburg I'm going to the Beacon!

(and for my Thai fix I'll continue to support the fabulous Little Bee in Asheville - where they can heat it up and it's delicious!)
