International Hot and Spicy Food Day: Top 5 Spots to Celebrate
Today’s Food Holiday is International Hot and Spicy Food Day. CJ and I love “flavorful” foods which means that we like foods that make us sweat. Flavorful is very good, but loads of Scoville units tickle my fancy. Below is a list of my five favorite foods and the Top 5 Spots for Hot & Spicy Food. They may not contain 16 million of the aforementioned units that burn your mouth, but they taste great.
5) Crawfish – Boiled in Cajun Seasoning with new potatoes, Corn on the Cob and Chaurice Sausage. If done well, the heat in your mouth makes you want more. If you are in Louisiana, try the The Boiling Point in Sulphur, Louisiana from mid March to late June and you should be able to eat your fill.
4) Buffalo Wings – The original are the best and if you want some authentic ones try Plucker’s Wing Bar in Austin, Texas. They have stuck with real blue cheese dressing, top quality wing’s (Jumbo) and a great sauce. Yes, you can request they light up the sauce if you desire.
3) Indian Chicken Vindaloo – One of my favorite cuisine’s: Sweet or Spicy Indian. My favorite is the spicy. If you happen to be in New York City, try Mausam Curry N Bites which is a food truck that started as a restaurant and banquet hall in New Jersey and now tours around New York City.
2) Massaman Curry – When in Seattle try Jai Thai Restaurant on Freemont Avenue in Seattle, Washington. Their Massaman Curry is to die for.
1) When I want to cook something spicy, I use Sriracha sauce to kick it up a notch. It is found in most Asian restaurants, especially Pho Houses. Sriracha is a type of hot sauce, named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in the Chonburi Province of Eastern Thailand.
