Scary Spice!! Eddie Lin Teams Up with metromix LA for the Moveable Feast from Hell!
Atomic Wings aka "Waiver Wings".
It's been a hot July in these dog days of summer. I've been doing my best to keep chill and apparently for me that means not blogging very much. I apologize for that, but rest assured, I've been very busy pushing the gastronomic envelope, just not in the blogosphere. One thing I've been doing to keep my cool is eating spicy foods. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but, trust me, any distraction from the sun's heat, even if that distraction means spicy heat, is a relief.
Those fine, albeit sadistic folks at metromix Los Angeles put together a fiery moveable feast not even Ernest Hemingway would be crazy enough to take part in (and that guy was pretty crazy). Jiyeon Yoo, metromix's restaurant editor, failed to inform me about her scorched throat policy in her selection of eateries serving up scary spicy food and because of that I sit here writing this post from the comfort of my toilet seat.
Have your Costco-sized jug o' milk and mega-Maalox ready. You'll need them for this capsaicin car wreck. Yikes! I think my biscuits are burnin', my biscuits are burnin'! The H is O!!
I hurt myself this day to see if I still feel...
