Mmmmmmmmm!!!! Fiery Balls of Greatness!
On whatever night it's on the television I was watching one of my fav new programs, Man vs. Food, a true tribute to that least terrible of deadly sins, gluttony, in it's purest uncut form. Said show follows one man on his foodie hobbit quest to tackle that utterly iconic swatch of innocent babe Americana, the giant food item served up in a quirky hole in the wall eatery the likes of which your town has never seen. You always wish your town had something like that. You know the place, the place where by ordering you enter into a pact, a pact to finish some form of gigantic, sickeningly bloated over sized food item all the while being cheered on by the rabble (Yes this counts against your 15 minutes). Yeah that's the show.
The show took place in the humble burg of Portland or as locals call it "The" Portland. The center of my interest and laser like focus was a place by the name of Salvador Molly's (Get it? So quirky). The menu item which captured my attention is called Great Balls of Fire. A ball of great fire consists of a cheese and habenero fritter served with a side of habenero salsa. If you can finish five in five minutes you get your picture on the wall. Sweet!
Science fact according to the show: A Habenero is 40x hotter than your run of the mill Jalapeno. So smoke that in your pipe and put it.
