Their Habanero is okay, but I have had many better versions.
Funny story. At Christmas, my friends gave me a bottle of hot sauce that they had never tried, but knew to be pretty hot (it is made with Habanero, Naga/Jolokia, and Capsaicin crystals). I didn't try it before bringing out to use in a restaurant for breakfast. Luckily I decided to try a little first before pouring it on my food. I dipped one tine of my fork in it and tasted it. I couldn't feel my tongue for five minutes. I am not exaggerating.
Well, the owners of the restaurant (this was a Korean family place) saw me tasting the hot sauce and they all wanted to get in on the fun. I warned them to try just a small amount before pouring it all over their food and not being able to eat it. One of the waiters took a toothpick and only put about half a toothpick full in his mouth. He turned bright red and literally couldn't breathe. I was worried that he might have a heart attack or something. It took him about ten minutes to regain his normal colour.
I don't think I am welcome there any more...
This goes more under the "What's for Lunch?" category.
Spinach enchilada (with ranchero sauce) with rice and beans. Also had a very strong Pomegranate Margarita (on the rocks; I hate those frozen ones).
I wasn't kidding. The poor guy really had trouble breathing and turned beet red. I haven't been back since and am not so sure I should go back there. "Aren't you the guy that killed Johnny?"
I did warn everyone strictly before they tried it.
Wanna hear the funniest part? It was a British hot sauce that I got at Christmas. Who knew the Brits could made something so nuclear?
This was the culprit:
It's too bad it is so hot as it really has a nice aroma.
"I would advise that this sauce be used with great care and I will not be held liable for any misuse of it."
Yeah. Like anyone really reads the warnings on the labels. I have two of theirs; "Son of Smart *rse" is the hotter of the two, but "Smart *rse" is pretty darn nuclear, too. I will end up throwing them away before I use them up.
(And why is "arse" a banned word here?)
This is the label warning on 'Smart Arse'®:
"Only for the INSANE!!Add to chillies, sauces, stews,curries, soups, etc.USE WITH CARE -CAN CAUSE BREATHING DIFFICULTIES.Keep away from children and animals."
Yet, I tried it, anyway.
These were both gifts from (ex)friends.
Me, too. These were chock full of spinach. I expected it to have a little spinach in it, but these were great.
Did I mention the Pomegranate Margarita?
arugula, tomatoes, cucumbers, basil and grilled chicken!yum!
