had piada one time and never went again. spray farts!
Piada is like the "italian" chipotle. My gf's parents got me a 40 gift card to Chipotle.. you can imagine how much I love them right now.
We don't all squeeze into skinny jeans dawg...
300 calories ain't sqaut. Call me when I'm pushing close to 3000 calories in a single meal and then I'll take that tip...
Well next time go in there more prepared, Marine.
I feel like we had this discussion like 3 months ago? :noidea:
I like both Chipotle and Qdoba. I want to try Hothead at some point, but I don't eat out all that much, so I haven't zeroed in on it. I've shifted my eating out preferences over the years. Whereas in high school and college, I would have preferred a Taco Bell or Burger King, now I tend to gravitate more in the direction of Penn Station... Skyline... Five Guys... Chipotle/Qdoba.... and even more recently I've trended further toward places like Tropical Smoothie Cafe and there's a Mom and Pop burger joint in Beavercreek called Cherry House Cafe. LOVE that place.
Anyway.... As far as Chiptole or Qdoba, the thing that settles it in my mind is the Habanero salsa they have at Qdoba. I am a Habanero junkie. I love the flavor. So I go to Qdoba and get the Ancho Barbeque burrito and put the Habanero salsa on it.
Habanero + Barbeque = F***ING HEAVEN!
My wife makes a Habanero Barbeque sauce she puts on home made meatballs. Best damn thing I've ever tasted.
Beats the sh*t out of my digestive system 12 hours later though.... I mean that literally. Habanero burns twice: going in and coming out. But so freaking worth it!
The green salsa is a nice medium one... still has some bite, but won't melt your filings... or you're just the biggest pansy on earth when it comes to hot sauce.
You would love my dad's backyard and my cupboard/fridge door... My dad grows about 20 strains of hot peppers every year (including the 3 main varieties of habaneros as well as bhut jolokia) and as a result of said love of hot peppers I have a cupboard section and entire fridge door I refer to as the flame vault. Dried chilis of all sorts, homemade chili powders, homemade rubs, homemade salsas, and a shit ton of various hot sauces from literally everywhere... If you're ever looking for a good chilli resource, check out chilisfirepit.com It's a mom and pop shop in Mentor my dad and I found about 10 years ago, they have just about anything you can think of, they have their own sauces (which are fantastic) and they do mail order.
I am satisfied. I got my fix today.
Unless I'm out and about in another part of town, I almost always go to the Chipotle in Beechwold (on High a little north of Henderson Rd) and it's almost the opposite there... hispanic manager, a couple hispanic employees, and a ton of white kids.
PS... Surely you mean pansy tip... 300 calories is easy to work off... it's called an evening in, I mean with Phatty's wifey.
damn. now i gots to go. Tomato, corn and hot salsa. Boom
I'm impressed you can dance like this after eating Chipotle, it usually takes me at least 8 hours to get over one of those beast burritos.
That was actually me dancing in the line waiting for my food. As expected, I hit the food coma shortly after.
OMG, I will definitely check that out. I have had this kid + scary looking roller coaster relationship with the bhut jolokia lately. I've heard of it and have thought, I have to try it if for no other reason than to say I have... you know I can't call myself a hot pepper guy if I'm too scared to try a hot pepper.... but I am scared to freaking death by it. 1,000,000 scovilles? OUCH! But if the flavor is anywhere near as good as Habanero, it might just be worth it.
The other thing standing in my way has been that I'm not sure where to find it. I figure I could try a place like Jungle Gym's but that's over an hour + away from me, and I don't want to drive down there just to see if they have one type of pepper. I suppose I could pick up some of their cheeses and take a gander at their import section, but with Belmont Party Supply right near me, who needs to go down there for beer?
But knowing your dad grows them... tempting!
Just plowed a barbacoa burrito with guacamole and black beans with the free salsa and cheese....
Best thing I've eaten in a looooong time...
I take back anything bad I might've said about Chipotle....
I plowed the whole thing and I still want more...
Ok McKraut, I have secured a sampling of the Jolokia pepper, apparently also known as the Ghost Pepper. At Kroger today, they had a nice selection of Mrs. Renfro's salsa. I usually get their Habanero salsa, because, as you know, I'm a habanero junkie. Today, I discovered they also make a Ghost Pepper salsa.
The Habanero salsa is labeled as "Hot". The Ghost Pepper salsa is labeled as "Scary Hot".
I'm almost giddy with anticipation :flame:
The ghost pepper is good...
It usually cones with a warning label...
Oh yeah... Habanero usually burns the next morning. I expect this to burn all day tomorrow.
It's very good, but I have to respect this and go slow. Whereas with the Habanero, I can pound a few bites straight in a row that can have a nice hefty amount of salsa, this is making me go with rather more conservative scoops. I can usually clean out 1 jar of the Habanero salsa with just one bag of chips. With this. It's gonna be quite a few more bags of chips before this stuff is gone. Nice and spicy :flame:
It has a smokey flavor to it. Is that typical of the ghost pepper, or could that just be the other spices the chef put in?
ate a Naga Bhut Jolokia (ghost pepper) during lunch in high school. Almost had to go home sick for the day. I would not advise ingesting one of those puppies raw and whole....
Dude, I don't eat habaneros whole either.... insanity. But I loooooove them chopped up in stuff.
Had some Chipotle today before work, finished an entire burrito in about 7 minutes.
Still felt really energetic for the rest of the night.
