best spicy dish dc/md/va
i have a really bad cold. i am stuffy to the point that i can't really breathe or hear and am totally burnt out on chicken soup (sorry mom!).
my only respite so far came tonight--the spicy pork at shanghai tea house in glover park. i need new and different (and delicious!) sinus-clearing remedies, so tell me: what's your favorite spicy dish around?
Cumin lamb, beef jerky, and the chicken pepper special at Hong Kong Palace (to name just a few dishes there).
Quite a few things at Joe's (sorry - not wanting to conquer the menu this early in the morning once again).
Wings with 3 mile island sauce at Bungalow Billiards.
The spicy squid salad at Thai Square!!!
A chorizo taco (or three) with added sauce at the counter at TECC.
chili basil fried rice and red curry roast pork at Rabieng...shrimp with lemongrass and chilies at Huong Viet...drunken noodles anywhere...The Philly with lots and lots of extra hot peppers at the italian store...channa masala at delhi club (moderately spicy but sooo good)....dan dan noodles at HKP (also only moderately spicy)...mixed saltena from la caraquena doused with salsa verde....
suicide curry at Spices.
It's what my boyfriend's dreams are made of. I can tolerate it, but personally don't like the flavor as much as other stuff....but he loves it.
and it's INCREDIBLY hot. The first time he had it, the waitress said, "first time? Good luck!"
The Floating Market Noodle Soup at Nava Thai in Wheaton will make you sweat so much you will actually lose weight eating this soup.
