Chili My Soul

Jonathan Gold received the first Pulitzer Prize in food writing this year, and it's certainly made his name much more recognizable. His reviews are fun because he's not stuffy or full of himself...he just really, really likes food. As a restaurant reviewer for the L.A. Weekly and Good Food, he's visited the sushi nazi as well as a tiny little Peruvian restaurant well outside of L.A., and he's found all the gold in between.

A friend of mine was raving about Chili My Soul once, so I only thought it fair to share that he and Mr. Gold's tastebuds are delighted by similar pleasures.

"Proprietor Randy Hoffman brings his family's history to Chili My Soul, leaning on his teachings from the food chemists that worked in the family’s salad dressing factory. Jonathan Gold visits the restaurant and indulges in a little spicy chili chemistry -- taking on an array of heat and chili varieties -- like the Roasted Garlic Beef, Tecate (made with beer) and Durango (enhanced with masa). Those who don't want to drive to the restaurant's Encino location can also find Hoffman's chili at The Griddle in West Hollywood and at all of the Jinky's cafes."
