Yesterday, early evening, Nicole and I were drifting around LA before she had to go into the opera. So of course… Food Adventure. We usually surf Pulitzer Prize winning food critic Jonathan Gold’s (affectionately known as J-Gold) reviews. Boyle Heights, a district in East LA, lured us to Guisado’s. Especially the Chiles Torredeo Taco. This is basically a taco filled with burnt chilies (5 kinds) seeds and all. But it’s the Habanero that gets your attention… about one bite in.
About one bite in and you’re pretty sure you’re not gonna make it. Your mouth is on fire. And then… it starts to really get hot. Ten minutes later and it’s reached a whole new level of heat. I powered through half the taco. And it’s not just hot… it’s tasty too. But… it’s dripping with venomous heat. Don’t touch your face. Be careful… this thing is lethal. I had a couple of other tacos as I made my way through the HellBeast. A perfect crispy shrimp and a Chicken Tinga. Both hot by any other standards. Amateur in light of the Chiles Torredeo.
2 hours later my lips are still numb.
3 hours same.
Next morning. It’s still here not fading.
Here’s J-Gold’s review.
He’s the best food critic. If you’re in LA he’s who you listen to.
