Taste buds ignite thanks to a clever combination of Thai spices in the jumbo shrimp with green curry. Just be warned--it's the hottest of Thai curries, so order yourself a cocktail to curb the heat.
Order up the Molcajete de Pollo, a dish that's hot--literally. A juicy chicken breast is served in a lava rock bowl, which is first heated in the oven, and smothered with a chile de arbol salsa.
Feeling hot, hot, hot? A corn tortilla with fiery chorizo sausage sauteed with onions, tomatoes and green olives is a lovely--and downright delicious--way to burn.
Got a hankering for the saucy stuff? The meat at this local dive is slow-cooked in a smoky wood fire place and smothered with either their hot or mild (for the whimps!) BBQ sauce.
Opt for the perfectly spiced Lamb Vindaloo, with chunks of tender meat swimming in a hot, tangy curry, and don't forget to order a side of naan to soak up the extra sauce.
