I'm gathering a list of the hottest/spiciest/GI-clearingest dishes in town. Cuisine is no matter. What's your pick?
Here's to get you started:
Camarones a la Diabla @ El Norteno
Anything at Thai Tip when you say "Thai Hot +1" (or more!)
Bowl of Green at El Pinto
Is there anything New Mexican in town that could rival Horseman's Haven?
Thai Cuisine I on Coors is the location of the hottest (on a Scoville Scale) dish in Albuquerque I have ever come up against.
I made the mistake of ordering from what I can recall was the Pad Cha (spicey) and requested the Thai hot version.
There were so many green Thai peppers in the dish I could not eat it!
Lesson learned when the cook smiles after you order Thai hot you better get ready.
Proceed with much caution if they still make the dish the same way.
I may be mistaken, but last time I was at India Kitchen (Montgomery/Louisiana) I thought I saw a jar of pickled Bhut Jolokia peppers for sale. At least, that's what was handwritten on the masking tape on the jar. That way you could punish yourself in the safety of your own home. Just be sure to have the fire department on speed dial, and a few gallons of ice cream handy.
Cecilia's is WICKED hot. Really, seriously, gastrointestinal distress hot. But I like that.
Yeah - checked out the carne adovada again last week. It's hurty! Cecilia said the green is equally firey, and claimed to have versions for personal use only that were even hotter. Nice to see somebody local giving the Horseman's Haven a run for their money.
