    We went to Long Beach today just to walk around and I got to check out "Hot Licks", a hot sauce specialty store. The lady running the place was nice enough to let me try a bunch of hot sauces, salsas and BBQ sauces.

    And this is what I ended up bringing home.

    I originally only got one bottle of the Hula Girl (Thanks Chihili...I wouldn't have know to try it) but when I put a little on some nachos I had gotten as a snack I had to get a second bottle....its REALLY good...

    The Salsa is for my wife...the Steak Sauce was really good so I got that too....the prices were a little high so I stopped at that smi

    I thought I had them already :weebz:

    Actually the "Hottest Fuckin' Sauce" was $25.00 for the bottle so I figured all of that stuff was ridiculously overpriced...

    It was pretty cool...we actually found my new favorite BBQ place in town called "Famous Dave's) so we'll probably be back there on a regular basis biggrin

    btw I just picked up some Tapatio for you this morning...the one thing I didn't see there....

    Looks like those prices are in line here overseas, which are sticker shocker prices. Maybe one bottle a year just to get away from the watered down Tabasco Hot Sauce is worth paying the high price, but $25 for a bottle forget it :mad:

    that is way too much for a condiment. I can get a small bottle of El Yucateco for about a buck and a half around here and they wanted $4.50 or so for it...

    It's $25 per gallon, if I'm reading it right. $3.75 for 8 ounces. Think deep, rich, dimensional Tabasco. Kind of like one of your Suhrs vs. its off-the-rack standard Fender counterpart.

    Mark,

    Did you go to Famous Dave's down there on Pine Street next to the Aquarium ?

    That place is frickin awesome. (I liked it better than Lucilles)


    We were waiting for a table at PF Changes right next store one night and decided for BBQ instead.

    I got to sit through a 2 hr movie with a gut full of swine. !

    Its pretty interesting, i was at the Ontario Mills mall over the weekend, Friday i think it was, over where the 10 and 15 meet, leaving the mall i saw a restaraunt called "Famous Dave's" and i was sitting there at the light wondering what it was.

    Now i know. hahahaha.

    dude it's finger lickin !

    Seriously, I was very impressed with both their pulled pork and their ribs both. I was surprised I could find good barq in SoCal.


    The Lucille's place is ok, it's just not on par with ole Famous Dave's

    Man... now I'm going to have to make a trip to Long Beach when I get home.

    I almost wish there weren't people who liked hot sauce like me. Or that I hadn't wandered in here.
