    Perhaps Americans are growing a little more adventurous in their snacking habits. It seems that in addition to Rotel making several flavors of their chilies and tomatoes, Hunts also makes the same (in a 15 oz. can). And the local Food Lion even has their own store brand (in the proper 10 oz. size).

    (…the Houstonian stares dumbfoundedly at Daryl for contending that there is anything particularly adventurous about Ro-Tel…)

    How on earth do y’all manage without it?

    They’re not. But there are still tons of Americans for whom Chinese takeout is a walk on the wild side.

    I’m probably a couple of standard deviations away from the average. I’ve grown habaneros in my garden. I’ve surprised a Korean waitress that I could eat their peppers. And I nearly killed my boss one year with some of my hot sauces.

    Mo hotta, mo betta 🙂

    Speaking of…sensuous on the subject…

    Where is the BEST Korean in F’ville? The little, dumpy, hole in the wall we used to go to is closed.

    There are only 3 in town. I haven’t been to any of them. The waitress I mentioned above was working at a bul go gi restaurant outside of Ulsan.

    But I think you’ve inspired me to try the three locals. Reviews to follow soon. 🙂

    T’anks! Will be waiting to hear…esp. about the kimchee. If the kimchee is good, the rest of the food usually will be too. If the kimchee isn’t great…well, then the whole meal is a loss no matter what. 🙂
