Chile Pepper ~ The Whitest Rice on Earth
Sometimes when I haven’t had a taco for 18 hours I get the shakes. So today, I curbed my trembling bod at The Chile Pepper. The CP (not to be confused with cerebral palsy) is a quaint little house located in Wallingford. We ordered spicy pork tacos and the chicken suiza enchiladas. All this food arrived about 3 seconds after placing the order. I’ve waited longer for food at Long John Silver’s so this was mildly alarming.
Aesthetically, the enchiladas and tacos appear vibrant and substantial. However, both the chicken and pork were dry and lacked stroke-inducingly awesome flavor. A la carte items are not listed on the menu forcing customers to pay $9.95 – $15.95 for a crazy-looking bean and fluorescent white rice accompaniment. (Uncle Ben called. He wants his rice back.) And for some reason there are peas in the rice.
Perhaps the CP was having an off day, but maybe we will never know.
