Murderous Mirchi

Coming soon, to the purse of an auntie near you, a hot sauce so hot it could literally kill you:

Ultra-concentrated “16 Million Reserve” is the hottest science can make. The sauce is 30 times hotter than the spiciest pepper and 8,000 times more fiery than Tabasco. Diners must sign a disclaimer recommending “protective gloves and eye wear” — but even sweating testers in safety gear were blinded by tears for 30 minutes. Medical experts fear it could kill asthmatics or hospitalise a user who touches a sensitive part of the body afterwards. It is made of pure capsaicin, the chemical that makes peppers “hot”.

  1. and we would eat this WHY?

    sounds like the mystery hot-sauce at mahmouns…

  2. There are two Mahmoun’s locations: MacDougal Street in the Village and in New Haven right by Yale.

  3. Mahmouns…I feel bad for all the other felafel joints across the street that are empty while Mahmouns is PACKED.

    And have you seen the ridiculous “bouncer” at Kati Roll??
