Spicy foods: Telor Balado at Taste of Bali
Lady Gaga's got nothing on this outrageous egg ($14). In comparison, it makes American deviled eggs seem angelic. First the ovum gets boiled, then the thing gets dunked in hot oil. The now rippled and knobby, fun-textured ovoid then takes a bath in a glowing red hot chili sauce with a pronounced sweetness. When you eat it, you initially taste that candy sweetness followed by the rich and creamy yolk, but soon enough a searing tingle erupts at the back of your throat.
