Chili flakes in my brain
What is it about hot spices that turns my well-oiled supposedly-logical brains into dhal-bhorta?
I can't stop thinking about it.......the death-by-spice seafood stir fry at the Thai place in Victoria,BC that I had in June!
Never has the combo of plump shrimps, fresh scallops and interesting shellfish tossed with a mug full of hot chili pepper paste and sprinkled with veggies on a bed of rice has taken over the mind like this. (Supported by a bucket full of water ofcourse)
You must have that feeling sometime right?
When you just know that your tongue might try to kill itself by choking on its own saliva if you don't feed it what you've been craving for days: fuchka (pani-puri), mac&cheese, vanilla ice-cream topped with hot fudge brownies, a McChicken...whatever it maybe .
shiteblimeyholytoodles am I the only freak?
tell me it isn't so.
Oh I hate people for whom food is just to fill the stomach!
What about your mind, you fool?
Darn it. Where is the magic carpet when you need it? Coz the TO Thai food just won't cut it. I need to get to BC.
Oh well maybe the 'Hot and spicy food festival' at the Harbourfront this weekend will placate Ms. T for a bit, even if its not Thai spice that are featured.
Who's with me?
